    please let us know the part of the bill that factually:

    Threatens women's sports
    Threatens Women's shelters
    Threaten womans Schools
    Silences female athletes
    Silences domestic abuse survivors
    Gives men the right to enter any women's only or girl's only facility at will
    Gives men the right if they are a girls junior high school basketball coach to enter the girls locker room, watch 11 and 12 year old girls shower and the school not only couldn't fire him and would be absolutely helpless to stop him from doing this
    Gives men the right to compete in women's sport
    Exploits and endangers women
    weaponizes gender identity



    thanks!
    anything yet? We are waiting. Please let us know, thanks!

    Equality Act: House OKs Pelosi priority bill to expand gay rights
    House Equality Act Extends Civil Rights Protections to Gay and Transgender People - The New York Times


    Its a shame that things are so partisan that this will be shot down in the senate or by Trump himself but at least its being tried and rightfully so. Good Job!!!
    Regardless full and equal civil rights protections for LGBT will happen in my life time and its an awesome thing equality is winning and bigotry is dying.

    what is the equality act?
    Equality Act (United States) - Wikipedia
    I'll buy into this as soon as racial identity becomes protected.

    I cant find at this point if it was upheld or not. It was on the news alot and I think the teacher may have dropped it.

    Here's a more recent case that bears watching:

    This Catholic school was right to fire a gay teacher who got married
    Good!!! Like I said, the law cannot supercede the Constitution. The Catholic school is protected as it is a part of the Diocese of the Catholic Church. Whether you think it is right to fire him has no bearing on the case. You don't have the right to go over the heads of the Constitution. Period! But, the Democrat Party now has turned into a terrorist organization committing treason against the Constitution. I think Trump should designate the Democrat Party as a terrorist group that it is and lock all of them up!

    Not race, racial identity. We should have the freedom to live the racial identity we wish, and get all the benefits from that race. Bruce Jenner benefits from womanhood, and so it should be for transracials.

    It is almost as if they designed a bill to make a political point knowing full well it is probably dead on arrival in the Senate, let alone making it past the Presidentís desk.

    Donít get me wrong, there are aspects of the bill that make sense in terms of job protections and so forth along the lines of the Civil Rights act it attempts to amend. But Democrats may have taken it too far and that discounts the very group they claim they are trying to protect.

    The whole thing may just end up a campaign stunt, and that further does a disservice to the LGBT community.
    Yeah, this is going to get interesting. It warrants an open conversation of what this all means, but I doubt that's going to happen in the Zero Sum Game era. There is something to be said about women's sports (and other areas) where biological advantages can stifle the progress women have made.
