Celebrities denounced Texas’s potential transgender bathroom bill in an open letter Tuesday.
Stars like Jimmy Kimmel, Jennifer Lawrence and Lady Gaga asked leaders in the Texas government to strike down the bill, claiming the legislation would harm transgender children, reports My Statesman.
“Transgender and gender-nonconforming young people are already subjected to bullying and harassment. Can you imagine the messages these bills send to children- the message of ‘that child is unwelcome. that child is dangerous?’” the letter admonished Texas leaders.
Perhaps the message is to conform. I don’t see how it will be heard above all of the encouraging messages that they get from the Crust.
Senate Bill 6 and House Bill 1362, the legislation in question, would prevent transgenders from using the bathroom according to their gender identity in public schools and government property. Schools would be allowed to provide alternate accommodations for transgenders, however.
Problem solved, then. (But, of course, that’s not the real goal — the real goal is forcing normal people to accept abnormal people as normal, and that war is far from over.)
The signers claimed the bills “criminalize” being transgender and deny transgenders their “basic human dignity.”
Don’t see any criminal penalties in there for the kids, just the DemLegHump Schools. I guess ‘basic human dignity’ somehow involves the right to be weird and to have everybody else not notice.
“It is up to you whether these bills will become law, and we are watching. It is up to us to commit to doing everything within our power to make sure all of our fans,crews, and fellow artists feel safe and welcome, wherever we go,” the letter stated.
Aha, so it’s not about transgender kids, it’s about transgender adults. The Truth Will Out. Well, I for one don’t care whether your ‘fans, crews, and fellow artists’ feel welcome in Texas, wherever else you might want to go (and we Texans would really wish you would go there instead).
