Just in case anyone still thinks that Republicans don’t hate the LGBTQA community.

From the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Transgender students on Wednesday lost federal protections that allowed them to use school bathrooms and locker rooms matching their gender identities, as the Trump administration stepped into a long-simmering national debate.

This is the beginning and it will not end with this.  But we can fight back.

  1. I am not sure the community is not over reacting. What the EO does is rescind the Obama EO that forced additional construction and pluming expenses on school districts around the country and gave precedence to the 10th Amendment. It seems that the community is using this to call President Trump a hater when in fact he has indicated that in his view it is an individual choice as to which bathroom to use.Several years ago the Federal Government got involved in toilet bowl sizing and limited all bowls to 1.3 gallons. This is a bit of an over reach as well. We still live in a republic. I do not want DC running and ruling every aspect of our lives and every time the feds get involved we lose some of our liberty and freedom as well as some of our money.
    Colorado, New York, California and many other states have addressed the bathroom issue. I think it is better for the movement to generate bottom up support rather than top down coercion.
    I fully support our rights to use the bathroom of our choosing and to my experience and from what I can read it had not been a problem prior to the time when the community wanted to expand the role of the Federal Government. I think the states will eventually get things right without Washington telling everyone what to thing and how to spend their resources.

    1. I think our community has a right and an obligation to be angry when we find out that rights protecting us are rescinded. It may be up to the states, but it’s hurtful when the federal government reverses laws that protect us.

  2. Hannah while I agree that the Tg community needs its rights protected. I believe that it’s an individual states responsibility to provide them. Also as a republican and being Tg myself I find it very offensive when you label all republicans as hating the Tg community. There are many of us out here in the Tg community. As a small business owner there are just too many bigger issues that need to be addressed at the federal level other than what bathroom a person should use.

    1. I understand your feelings and respect your opinions. Perhaps I shouldn’t paint with such a large brush, but it feels like any legislation that is passed is proposed and backed by republicans.
