CHRISTIAN BIGOTRY: “Transgender Bathroom Bigotry is a Civil Rights Issue” ☮

Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) talks with Bill Press about the lawsuits from 12 states over President Obama’s transgender bathroom directive. He compares what LGBT people are facing today to the civil rights injustices of the 1950s and 1960s. “Right now LGBT Americans are facing the people on the other side of this bridge, in that schoolhouse door, as we march towards equality.”

TRANSGENDER EQUALITY: “Transgender People are in an Epic Battle to use the Bathroom in Peace” / Daily Kos ☮

Transgender Americans have seen tremendous progress over the past few years. With increasing visibility in mainstream media and politics, more people understand the bigotry that trans people endure, and have seen many examples of people overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds.

But with progress usually comes backlash.

The Republican National Committee passed a resolution encouraging Republican legislators to coordinate a legislative assault on transgender rights, essentially making it criminal, and unsafe for trans people to pee in public.

Transgender people have committed bathroom assault exactly ZERO times.
