Advocates warn of 'unprecedented' wave of anti-LGBTQ bills

Very misleading, "Human Rights Campaign"

More of the boys in the girls locker room stuff.

"The bills “attempt to erase transgender people and attempt to make LGBTQ people second-class citizens,” Alphonso David, president of the Human Rights Campaign, said during a news conference Thursday.

David said the number of bills, particularly those targeting transgender young people, is “unprecedented” and that 2021 is on track to “become the worst year for state legislative attacks against LGBTQ people in history.”

Until now, 2015 held that record, with 15 anti-LGBTQ bills enacted into law, David said. So far this year, eight bills targeting LGBTQ people have been signed into law, and another 10 are sitting on governors’ desks awaiting signatures, according to the Human Rights Campaign."

"Governors in three states — Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee — have signed bills banning trans athletes from competing on school sports teams that align with their gender identity.

Republican Gov. Kristi Noem in South Dakota issued two executive orders that will prohibit trans girls from playing on girls sports teams. Noem also signed a religious freedom bill that advocates say opens the door to discrimination against LGBTQ people.

Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, a Republican, signed a similar bill that allows doctors to refuse to treat someone due to their religious or moral beliefs. Hutchinson vetoed another bill to ban transition care for trans minors — including puberty blockers, hormones and surgery — but the Arkansas Legislature overrode the veto, and the bill will become law this summer.

In North Dakota, Republican Gov. Doug Burgum signed a bill that the Human Rights Campaign says will allow student groups that receive state funding through their universities to turn away LGBTQ students “under the guise of free speech.”

In addition to those measures, another 10 are sitting on governors’ desks."

The pendulum swings back, and I'm glad to see it. Just as liberals abused the "civil rights movement" into a force which destroyed the black family and increased racial tensions, the homosexual lobby has elevated perversion to a protected class, and thereby spoiled everything it touches. Good riddance to them all.

Since the end result of many (all?) of these bills will be to keep mediocre XY athletes from dominating good XX athletes annoyance of those XYs who wanted cheap victories is understandable. Really, these bills are to protect XX people from unfair competition.

If trans want true athletic competition let them campaign for trans categories in all sports.

I predicted this would happen when they started shoving all aspects down our collective throats. I hope the pendulum doesn’t swing too far back.

Homosexuality used to be illegal, it shouldn’t be illegal.

I was raised, for better or for worse, under the concept of “One man’s right to swing, end’s where another man’s nose begins.”

private lives should be just that, private, no matter the preference.

Nope.

If you don't love, support, and champion for them,  you are a genocidal terrorist.

(lol.   Definition of genocide: the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political, or cultural group

Isn't being gay pretty much guaranteeing the destruction of your cultural group,  by lack of reproduction??)

Forcing someone to bake you a cake is a right,  dammit!!!
