PHOENIX - A bill in front of the city council would change the non-discrimination law in Phoenix, protecting Gay, Lesbian, Bi-sexual and Transgender people.
Essentially, the proposal prohibits discrimination in housing, employment and public accommodations, such as restaurants and hotels.
But, opponents have dubbed it, the "Bathroom Bill", because, if approved, a man could follow a woman into the bathroom by claiming to be transgender.
Supporters say they despise the nickname, claiming it's a fear-mongering lie created by critics of the bill.
They can swing this, that's why they do this because they know if they can get people to think that that's what this is about and this has nothing to do that, they'll flood that place with angry people and the politicians will run scared, says Erica Keppler, who supports the bill.
The proposed changes are similar to laws adopted by more than 150 other cities and counties across the country.
The Phoenix City Council will discuss the measure Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. at the Orpheum Theatre to handle the crowd expecting to show up.
Bathroom Bill is an amateur compared to Bathhouse Barry!
I really wish you had posted this BEFORE the Orpheum Theater meeting. I have 48,000 Facebook fans from Phoenix on one of my pages, and could have turned out hundreds of them today. Just damn.
Sorry. I only heard about this on the radio today.
So basically....if I understand this correctly....a guy could walk up and enter a women’s bathroom, in men’s clothing, simply by announcing “transgender”, and then utilize the facility to the maximum extent, and the lady can’t really say anything. Cops could check the guy out if called to the scene, but as long as the guy says he’s under the progress business to go from man to “other”, then he’s OK?
Man, a guy could just shave off his beard and just start wearing a bra then.
Erica Keppler. Yikes!
Sounds about right. I believe the original bill, which has already passed, was to accomodate a transgendered police officer. I did see HIM (even though he was trying to be a woman) on the news. Apparently the original bill was passed without anyone reading it all. Too familiar a practice these days.
If you have external plumbing you have to use the mens’ period
The easy way to fix the problem is for a woman to have a CHL. Make sure to inflict enough wounds to be fatal. Then there’s no problem with conflicting stories.
