This Battered Womenís Shelter Is Being Investigated For Turning Away A Drunk, Injured Man ( Alaska )
The Federalist ^ | NOVEMBER 2, 2018 | Bre Payton

A battered women's shelter in Anchorage, Alaska, is being investigated because it didn't allow a drunk man to sleep in the same room as women.

A battered women’s shelter in Anchorage, Alaska, is being investigated by the city’s Equal Rights Commission because it didn’t allow a drunk man, who came to the shelter after hours and was bleeding from an injury, to sleep in the same room as women.

Attorneys speaking on behalf of the Downtown Hope Center have repeatedly stated this man, who identifies as a woman, was not turned away because of his gender, but was sent to a hospital that night in January to get the medical treatment he needed. Shelter officials even paid for his cab fare to ensure that his wounds could be treated in a timely fashion. Yet the commission is investigating the shelter’s actions, arguing that it violated a city ordinance that was amended in 2015 to include a prohibition on discrimination based on “sexual orientation and gender identity to the grounds of discrimination.”

The Hope Center serves meals, gives away clothing, and offers job skills to both men and women during the daytime hours, but at night offers a space for women, many of whom have suffered from sexual and physical abuse at the hands of men, a safe space to spend the night.

Attorneys at the Alliance Defending Freedom, which is representing the faith-based women’s shelter, say the ordinance specifically exempts shelters from having to comply with the amended version of the ordinance, which means the Hope Center has not broken any laws.

Watch “The Red Pill”. This is actually a very interesting issue.

Any man can identify as a woman and we’re supposed to take their word for it.

What if the man identified as a “rapist?” Would they be in trouble for not letting him in?

Horrible.
There is no shortage of battered women and they shouldn’t have to be pawns in a world of twisted political correctness.

Next time send him straight to the Tempura House, a shelter for lightly battered women.

The Left redefining and transforming the culture to suit the insane and the perverted ... that’s their “progress” for you.

No, no, no. This person claims to be a woman. That's good enough for me.

This isn’t even the Donks of the 60’s or 70’s. They look like they will whittle themselves down to a ridiculous nub.

This said, I’d urge people to view this not as a fundamental phenomenon of itself, but as a sign of spiritual movement. That way we will strive towards something even better than what the GOP vision had been.

Pandering to the mentally ill trumps helping battered women.

Anchorage has become a suburb of Seattle.

IOW, a liberal cesspit.

Yes. Sexual assaults by mentally ill biologically intact men have been dismissed by liberals.

The fact that men HAVE used this as a method to get access to women’s bathrooms and changing rooms and then raped women and girls is shut down as hate speech.

Men who identified as women in prison and raped female prisoners were generally just transferred to the men’s facility afterward.
