Houston Mayor Forces All to Open Girls Rooms to Men (The liberal insanity continues).
Breitbart ^ | 29 May 2014 | Bob Price

Posted on 05/29/2014 12:11:58 PM PDT by Signalman

HOUSTON, Texas—Houston’s bathrooms, showers, and dressing facilities will now be open to all, regardless of gender, gender identity, gender expression, or other predilection of gender behavior. By an 11-6 vote of the Houston City Council, Mayor Annise Parker achieved this as the crowning jewel of her tenure as mayor.

Mayor Parker, Houston’s first openly gay mayor, said passing this ordinance was not the most important thing she has done in office, according to an article in the Fairfield Citizen, but it is the “most personally meaningful thing I will ever do as mayor.”

Houston Council Member, At Large Position 3, Michael Kubosh took exception to this. Kubosh told KPRC TV, "It's going to criminalize people that have been found in violation in the ordinance and the fine could be between $500 to $5,000."

In an interview with Breitbart Texas, Kubosh said, “The system is flawed and has little, if any, transparency. I did everything I could do to get the ordinance delayed or defeated, but the mayor controlled the whole process.” Kubosh said he voted against the ordinance along with District A Council Member Brenda Stardig, District D Council Member Dwight Boykins, District E Council Member Dave Martin, District G Council Member Oliver Pennington and At Large Position 5 Council Member Jack Christi.

Stephen Costello, the At Large Position 1 Council Member who supported Mayor Parker on the Proposition 1 “Rain Tax” ordinance, joined ten other council members in standing beside Mayor Parker.

If I’m standing there and my daughter is inside there is going to be a natural selection process taking place.

How about girls who don’t want a man in the bathroom with them?

I guess the good news is lines for the womens restroom will go down.

Why does a lesbian woman mayor want men invading girls’ bathrooms?

Was she molested as a girl, and now she’s rationalizing that it wasn’t that bad a thing, since it helped to make her the great person she is today?

Teen boys approve....remember all the teen movies especially in the 80’s when they tried to get a peek at the woman’s locker room....typically a small little pin hole so they could see pretty much nothing....lol. Well bonanza. Now they just have to walk in and if questioned, state “I am confused” and all will be well.

Shame on you, Houston, for electing a Democrat pervert to lead your city to evil actions such as this. Decent people wouldn’t put up with this BS.

Really now? This the most meaningful? If citizens of Houston don’t march into this pervert’s office and promptly remove this degenerate, then they’re completely unworthy of the label “Texan”.

There was a pervert here locally sent to prison for videotaping women through a hole in a shower stall ceiling.

I guess we're going to have to turn him loose and give him a one-way bus ticket to Houston.

I’m just wondering who benefits from this? Is there a crowd somewhere clamoring to be allowed in the opposite sex’s toilet? So aside from further blurring the natural distinction between men and women, and thereby normalizing deviancy, is there any reason at all to allow this?

Great point. The mayor talks about this law like it's the Emancipation Proclamation.

There has to be laws already in place that make this illegal. The people of Houston or Texas need to push for enforcement of existing law and vote to overturn this perversion. Shouldn't be that difficult to do. The people of Houston have to also stand up and THROW THE BUMS OUT that voted for this perversion.

"But there'll be new 'bums' to take their place," you say. That's right. But the key is do your best to elect the right politicians but focus on making it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing.

Hold politicians' feet to the fire regardless of who you like or not. View politicians as a necessary evil like government. Keep a short chain on 'em.

I have never been to Houston, but can certainly remember when Houston was a Conservative Southern city, with traditional Texas values. This is certainly Alice down the rabbit hole type behavior. Let us hope that the lunacy triggers a local political reaction, which leads to the replacement of those Council members who voted for this.

As is very obvious, the antics of the Left reflect an inability to accept reality. If this does not reflect that war on reality, what does it reflect? For openers, the Houston Mayor apparently has so great a problem with being a woman, that she openly acknowledges an asexual form of expression--something which would have been kept private, through most of human history. Secondly, she picks some thing which was certainly no problem--that is having separate rest rooms for men & women (or how was it a problem to anyone without a neurotic need to make a statement against normal human sexuality?)

Whether the target is normal sexuality; income inequality; social inequality; ethnic identity; cultural preferences of any kind; the Collectivist/Egalitarian (or Totalitarian Humanist) approach is compulsion driven, never reason driven. (See Compassion Or Compulsion?) It helps no one but scoundrels & demagogues. It succeeds, because the scoundrels and demagogues have learned how to stifle most dissent by hurling nasty epithets at a population overly distracted already, by the proliferation of distractions in the contemporary era.

Good questions. The only thing I can think of is the long lines to the women’s room compared to men’s at public venues. Even then, I didn’t want to venture into the men’s room.

Gay Episcopal priest follows his heart
There was a time when the Rev. Paul Fromberg figured that being gay and being an Episcopal priest was an either/or decision. Now, after years of struggling with sexuality and spirituality, Fromberg, 43, no longer believes he had to make that choice.
