Posted on 03/06/2013 1:41:53 AM PST by Olog-hai
Provisions in the recently passed Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) that single out gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgenders (LGBT) put domestic violence among those groups at the center of the federal effort to address such violence nationwide.
After it passed the Democrat-controlled Senate, the Republican leadership brought the bill up for a vote last week in the House and it passed. It has now been sent to President Obama for his signature.
The new law does not provide a definition for transgender or bisexual. However, the American Psychological Association defines transgender as an umbrella term for persons whose gender identity, gender expression, or behavior does not conform to that typically associated with the sex to which they were assigned at birth. Gender identity refers to a persons internal sense of being male, female, or something else; gender expression refers to the way a person communicates gender identity to others through behavior, clothing, hairstyles, voice, or body characteristics.
The APA says that bisexual persons can experience sexual, emotional, and affectational attraction to both their own sex and the opposite sex.

So what type of violence is this “act” covering that wasn’t already accounted for?
If it’s sodomy they won’t report it; they’ll just bend over and take it like a man.../s
Just another cash cow for slip and fall attorneys. Whiny women will start to wonder why the hell everyone stops talking or even looking at them. Then we will get a new law requiring everyone to look at and talk to them so everyone will be on the receiving end of endless threatening subpoenas from attorneys shakedown jihad to get into everyone’s pockets.
The current GOP might lose the house in 2014 just as Obama desires, not to Democrats but to Independents. Karma is still a funny thing.
No definition is typical of these ‘orientation entitlement ‘ bills.
Yep, the GOP house passed this Reid Senate piece of crap.
This is a pattern now. Reid gets a bill passed, the House GOP cant agree on an alternative and so Bohner just passes the Reid bill AS IS with mostly Dem votes and Obama signs it.
This is not working.
Any law that “singles out” anyone violates the 14th Amendment.
Some tranny is trying to break into women’s mixed martial arts.
“Her” nickname is the “Queen of Swords” I shite you not. I resent that because “Queen of Swords” is also a circa 2000 TV show about a female Zorro starring a very beautiful actual woman.
She’s already beat up 3 actual women.
A shame for her East Germany no longer exists.
Everything is a nightmare now for social conservatives — all day everyday.
