Florida Goes After Transgender Protections

In Gainesville Florida, several groups are attacking the new city protections that allow for Transgendered individuals to use whichever restroom (at public places) they are most comfortable with.

Relatively, it would seem to me that although this protection is very important to Transgender individuals, it should be, for the most part, a non-issue for others. But now many Christian conservatives, headed by the Citizens For Good Public Policy, are claiming that this protection is allowing creeps and perverts into the women’s restrooms. City police has pointed out that there have been NO incidents reported in public restrooms since the protection was put in place. But the Citizens For Good Public Policy, are releasing commercials and ads that twist and push fear into the minds of Gainesville voters. The most notable commercial is below.

    That reminds me of the “homosexual awareness” videos that were released in the 50’s. If you’re curious you can watch them on youtube. It just shows how little people really know.

    way to go, florida. again.

    the only strength a commercial like this has is ignorance; the minute it’s explained, it loses its power. the shock value (not to mention dark sunglasses and the random sepia tone that shows up) actually portrays a different sort of scene altogether, which i’m sure was completely intentional.

    it’s all lying. because it’s all idiots like this really have.
