URGENT: THE CT HOUSE APPROVED THIS, BUT THE SENATE VOTE WILL BE CLOSE. THE BILL IS ON THE CALENDAR AND WILL BE VOTED ON TODAY
Even if you do not live in Connecticut, you should be concerned about this bill. It may be coming to your state very soon, as millions from Tim Gill ('Sec. of State Project')and George Soros' 'Open Society Institute' are behind this effort.
SUMMARY: The Connecticut House has approved HB6599, the "Bathroom Bill", which gives broad and needless special privileges to "transgendered individuals" but from which all amnedments to protect the public and children have been defeated by Democrats kowtowing to the extremist LGBT lobby. As a result this bill as now constituted, would permit ANY man who claims female "gender identity" even if he has a beard and is not wearing women's clothing - MUST be given access to women's facilities, including public and private women's restrooms, locker rooms and showers. The "Gay Mafia" is fighting tooth and nail to win this fight, because it could be used as a model nationwide. We must stop this right here, right now, in CT. THE CT SENATE WILL VOTE TODAY ON THE BILL. PLEASE ACT NOW TO STOP IT!

Personally call your legislator today and ask them to oppose HB6599: An Act Concerning Discrimination. They want to hear from you. Even if you already know they oppose this bill. Here is a link to help you find your legislator: http://www.cslib.org/pathfinders/electionmaps/index.htm. Here is a simple script you can use to leave a message:
Hi, [Senator Doyle], my name is [Tom Williams]. I am your constituent. I live in [Middletown], on [Main Street]. I am calling to ask you to vote against HB 6599: An act concerning discrimination, also called The Bathroom Bill. This bill is too vague and would permit men to use women's public bathrooms and cross-dressers to teach young children without parental objection. This bill appears to prevent discrimination, but to me, it simply avoids common sense.
Of course, replace your information in the brackets. Also, please be respectful to your legislator and this bill's supporters.
How the "Bathroom Bill" HB6599 Would Affect CT Residents:
On the surface, this bill appears perfectly legitimate: An Act Concerning Discrimination. It prevents Discrimination in the title, what could be wrong with that? But all you have to do is go ONE LEVEL beneath the surface and it becomes crystal clear how destructive this bill is.
It means that a man who is a sexual predator could claim to be "transgendered" and enter a women's public bathroom, locker room or shower. DO YOU WANT YOUR WIFE OR DAUGHTER IN THIS SITUATION?
Under the bill, persons, who choose to express their gender identity as both genders at the same time (yes, beards and breasts), permanently, must be permitted to teach, coach, mentor, and advise young children without objection by parents or Boards of Education. Those who do object will be guilty of discrimination under this proposed law. A bold attempt to indoctrinate our children and stymie parental rights in Connecticut.
The bill does not require trans-gendered men to be dressed as women to take advantage of its protections. A trans-gendered man, having a "dress down" day, for instance, may still feel more comfortable using the women's public restroom as an expression of his gender. Nothing in this bill would prevent him from using the women's bathroom, over your objection, in denim and button-down shirt.
***Violence and peeping by men in women's bathrooms happens all across this country. Connecticut is not immune to these social problems. The April 20, 2011, edition of the Waterbury Republican includes a startling first hand account by an elderly woman of her encounter with a man in a mall's public restroom. In 2009, at Connecticut College, a man was found peeking underneath stalls in the womens bathroom and arrested (source). In 2008, police arrested a janitor who videotaped at least 16 women using a cell phone camera hidden in a bathroom stall of the Stamford train station (source). March 22, 2010, The Portland Press Herald reported that the "South Portland police charged a 30-year-old man with invasion of privacy after he was allegedly caught in a ladies bathroom peering over the stall at a woman." (source) A February 10, 2010, article in the New Haven Register reported the conviction of a man who was "filming staff and clients last June as they undressed in his Guilford martial arts studio. A fifth charge of risk of injury to a child was not pursued." (source) These are just a few examples of mischief in Connecticut's women's bathrooms. Why would our legislators invite more trouble by permitting any man into women's public bathrooms, particularly men sexually attracted to women?
THIS IS STATE SPONSORED DISCRIMINATION AGAINST THE OTHER 99% OF CT RESIDENTS.
Whomever votes for it is CLEARLY IN THE POCKET OF SPECIAL INTEREST RADICAL EXTREMISTS. You need to let them know that if they vote for this, you will remember this at the polls, which is right around the corner.
Call, email, visit or fax them and let them know that you unequivocally oppose HB 6599. Feel free to read them excerpts from the information provided on this page.

What on earth is going on in CT?
Or as Steven Tyler would say “crazy wrong”!
This just insanity. What kind of idiots are on the CT legislature?
If you have male plumbing you go to the men’s. Period.
This is anti women and women should fight this. No woman wants these men in their bathroom.

If you have your toys,
you pee with the boys...
Give it a month or two after this bill passes for the stories to start about criminals dressing as women to go into womens’ restrooms to rape women.
For what purpose???
Why does a crossdresser need to go into a woman’s bathroom???
I don’t understand this.
This makes women SECOND CLASS CITIZENS in the Ladies Room. The MA version would make it a crime if a women COMPLAINS about him being in the Ladies Room. $2,500 fine and one year in MCI-Framingham. BTW, that’s a Women’s Facility where no Trannys can go to.
And I say this as a Californian.
For safety reasons I think that the ‘plumbing’ really needs to match the restroom sign.
This would make life tough for those going through that 1yr dress as a member of the sex you are trying to become period...but the idea of creepy guys claiming to be transgender just to get into the ladies room is, well, just creepy.
We thought CA was the land of fruits and nuts.
We were wrong.
Even if you’ve destroyed your toys, you pee in your own dna room. As a natural born woman I want to feel secure when I use the ladies’ room. Which by default is the children’s bathroom because as mothers, grandmothers, aunts, etc., its usually up to us to take our children to the bathroom. What natural born man or woman wants to find a genetically alternated person next to them in the bathroom. It’s an intimidation tactic and I defy it. What ever happened to loving the person you were naturally (genetically ) born to be.
Colorado Governor Bill
Ritter, a Democrat, signed a law allowing men to use
womens bathrooms and locker rooms, based on socalled sexual-identity (a man who feels like a
woman, wants to be a woman or thinks he is a
woman). Under the states new transgender
nondiscrimination law, restaurants and other public
accommodations that try to keep guys out of the
ladies room are subject to a fine of up to $5,000 and
a year in jail.
In California, an employer can be fined $150,000 for
firing a man who comes to work in a dress.
So some freak peeping Tom merely has to put on a dress and he’s free to peruse the women’s bathrooms. Fantastic. Thank the idiot CT liberal voters for this.
What’s with those sick people in CT? Disgustingly sick.
So if this passes, and I’m a guy and I’m dressed like a guy, can I claim to be a transvestite whose particular kink is dressing up like a woman dressed as a guy and then go into the ladies’ room?
the CT agenda is coming to your state, even if your state only elects “conservative” DEMS to the legislature.
This is the Democrat Party behind this and it would make for good publicity out in the heartland. Along with the rest of the GBLT agenda.
It does seem to have disparate impact on women’s restrooms. There are probably far fewer women who “become” men or dress as men. Though that raises the question whether men would feel equally uncomfortable with a genetic female in their restrooms.
Sure. This "status" is purely self-assessed and subjective. No one will have any right to say that you aren't who you say you think you are.
