Texas is still run by a majority of conservative Republicans who value the rights of privacy and decency of the people. They understand that most people don’t want people of the opposite sex using the same bathrooms or school locker rooms and showers as their sons and daughters use. They don’t want anatomical men in bathrooms with their wives, either. That’s why the Texas Senate State Affairs Committee voted 8-1 to pass Senate Bill 3 which would restrict transgender or gender confused individuals from using the bathroom of their choice. Instead, they would be required to use the bathroom of their sex at birth.
As part of state lawmakers’ second attempt at passing a bathroom bill this year, a panel of Senate lawmakers voted Friday to advance a measure to restrict bathroom use for transgender Texans.
The 8-1 vote came after almost 10 hours of emotional testimony — a large majority in opposition — by transgender Texans, their families and their allies, who pleaded with lawmakers to not endanger an already vulnerable population. For the third time this year, hundreds of people streamed through the halls of the Capitol and waited in line to testify on the divisive issue that has garnered Texas national attention.
The Senate State Affairs Committee signed off on Senate Bill 3, which would restrict bathroom use in government buildings and public schools based on the sex listed on a person’s birth certificate. Such restrictions would keep most transgender men, women and children from using bathrooms that match their gender identity…
The bill faces a tough battle on the floor of the full Senate as liberals have already been mounting a huge attack against passage of the bill. Liberals believe that gender confused people have the right to use the bathroom, locker room and shower of their choice. They care nothing about the rights of privacy and decency of the majority of the people, because their agenda is to destroy the moral values that once made America a great nation.
