Radical House Democrats Introduce ‘Transgender Bill of Rights’
Bill would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964
A new bill introduced by radical House Democrats would enshrine “gender identity” into discrimination law, according to reports.
The “Transgender Bill of Rights” would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to outlaw discrimination based on “gender identity” in public accommodations, and federally funded programs and activities.
Led by Reps. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) David Cicilline (D-RI), Marie Newman (D-IL), Mark Takano (D-CA), and Ritchie Torres (D-NY), the bill “explicitly clarif[ies] that it is illegal to discriminate on the basis of…gender identity."
But the legislation is out of touch with the views of the majority of Americans, 60 percent of whom believe sex is determined by biology, according to polling shows.
The bill also takes aim at Republican state laws, which look to protect women's and girls’ spaces.
As Breitbart reported:
The bill would force states to allow males who believe they are females to play women and girls’ sports.
The bill would also force schools to allow students to use “facilities that best align with their gender identity.”
This element of the bill makes no mention of males’ biological advantages in sports, or the potential for males dressed as females to assault women and girls in bathrooms, locker rooms, etc.
Giving transgender people access to women's and girls’ spaces and sports teams is also largely unpopular with voters, with 63 percent opposed, according to a new NPR/Ipsos poll.
The bill would also ban “conversion therapy” — a leftist label for any kind of therapy that rejects the idea that people can choose their own sex.
The definition of “conversion therapy” is absent if its historical context, which sometimes involved brutal treatments perpetrated against same-sex attracted people.
The bill would also remove any government restrictions on access to “gender-affirming” medical care for adults and minors
“Gender-affirming” healthcare is a far-left euphemism that intends to make mutilation sound like a compassionate course of action.
But such care involves the administration of puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones, of which many long-term side effects are unknown.
Such surgeries include cutting off breasts, adding them, and surgery on the genitals or reproductive organs
The bill would also prohibit states from punishing healthcare providers that provide sex-change treatments to “transgender and nonbinary people,” like Alabama’s law.
The bill is very similar, expect more radical, to the Equality Act, which passed the House in February of 2021.
However, the “Transgender Bill of Rights” has far less Democrat support than the Equality Act, with 85 co-sponsors compared to 224.
