Right now Massachusettes is debating a Transgender Equal Rights Bill that would provide public accommodations bill for the state’s trans-citizens. So of course here come the radio ads talking about how men dressed like women are gonna rape your daughter and wife in the public bathroom instead of just taking a dump like normal people. So who’s behind these latest ads?

One hint: it’s a hate group.

The ad’s creators openly mention their BFFs:

Created to compliment the work of the Massachusetts Family Institute, MFI Action expands our latitude and flexibility in advocating for pro-family polices in the public policy arena in Massachusetts.  It is consistent with the creation of Focus on the Family, Action; and Family Research Council, Action; as well as a majority of our sister family policy councils in the other states. 

Hmmm… Focus on the Family and the Family Research Council. Why do those sound so familiar? Maybe it’s because The Southern Poverty Law Center has described FoF as one of a “dozen major groups [which] help drive the religious right’s anti-gay crusade” and has flat out called the FRC a “hate group”.

As you know public accommodation rights protect Ts from discrimination in public transit, hospitals, hotels, restaurants, and bathrooms. Any firm doing business with “the public” must fall into line. But of course, trans-phobic opponents have skipped all that and focused just on the place where mommy and child make bam-bam.

Let’s take a look at their slanted arguments:

Designed to help gender-confused individuals, the Bathroom Bill would add the vague category of “gender identity or expression” to the state ban on discrimination. Among the negative consequences of this law are: a) school children would be taught that they can change their gender if they want and b) women and children would be put at risk since access to sensitive areas such as single-sex bathrooms, locker rooms, and c) women-only fitness facilities would be open to anyone, regardless of biological sex, and d) anyone speaking out against it could be charged with a “hate crime.”

Wow. Slippery slope much? Interesting how a public accommodations bill will suddenly teach young boys to become girls and outlaw free speech. As if anyone who questions the bill will automatically fall prey to the thought police. Where’s Winston Smith when you need him?

In 2005, the state of Maine approved its own version of the “Bathroom Bill” and the consequences of this move are being felt. The state’s Human Rights Commission ruled that an elementary-aged boy petitioning for access to the girls’ bathroom could not be required to use a separate bathroom, he must be allowed access to the girls room. This ruling is expected to negatively impact all of Maine. The school’s actions seem reasonable as they protect the privacy and modesty of prepubescent little girls, while also addressing any safety issues regarding the young boy with gender confusion. But the Human Rights Commission, armed with the state’s “Bathroom Bill,” were unsatisfied with this solution.

We love that phrase “prepubescent little girls.” Who the hell wrote this? Lewis Carroll? And the case they’re talking about wasn’t about a boy, it was a male-to-female trans kid. Yes, trans kids exist. And simply acting like they’re just boys who wanna get into the girls’ room perpetuates violence against ALL transpeople. After all, why should proper, civil society tolerate perverts and sexual deviants? KILL THE BASTERDS!!!

The “Bathroom Bill” would protect the rights of people with Gender Identity Disorder (cross-dressers, those changing their gender surgically, or simply those who “fee” differently-gendered) to use the bathrooms, locker rooms, and shelters reserved for the opposite sex. Transgendered is self-defined by the claimant, and based solely on one’s conception of oneself on that particular day. There’s no requirement of a doctor’s proclamation, surgery, or hormone therapy.

Gender Identity Disorder. That’s the controversial designation in the fourth version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders that describes the emotional distress that trans folks might feel in their physical bodies. Not only is the “diagnosis” extremely problematic (as it stigmatizes trans-identitified people as mentally ill), but the further claim that “Transgendered is self-defined by the claimant, and based solely on one’s conception of oneself on that particular day,” is complete bullshit.

It’s basically saying that if I wake up and wanna put on a wig and start using women’s restrooms that I can, when any actual trans-person usually has a verifiable history of some sort lending credence to their gender identity. That is, it’s not an arbitrary choice and anyone who genuinely identifies as trans has much bigger fish to fry and most likely more self-respect and compassion that to even consider the villainous pedophilia, misogyny, and rape that such ads suggest.

Disgusting advertisements brought to you from people who compare homosexuality to shit-eating and animal fucking.

Luckily 135 clergy throughout the state of Massachusetts actually support the Transgender Equal Rights bill.
