[Ed. – This has been the purpose of new “anti-discrimination” laws for at least the last 30 years, but the push in Texas certainly looks concerted and hysterical.]
Other bills would force religious homeless shelters, colleges, and universities to allow biological men to sleep next to women. This includes in shelters for abused women and small dormitories. Think that’s a little farfetched? It’s already happening in Alaska.
As if that’s not bad enough, these same bills would be used to force private business owners to allow men into the most intimate spaces designed for women. This includes places like showers and locker rooms at a gym, or any public bathroom. Again, if you think this is farfetched, it has already happened in Seattle, and a Planet Fitness in Michigan revoked membership to a woman who merely complained there was a man in the women’s locker room. …
The bills in front of the Texas legislature, however, would force all business to adopt these radical LGBT policies, even those owned by people who oppose them for religious or safety reasons.
But it doesn’t end there. A third bill, H.B. 517, would allow the government to punish counselors, marriage and family therapists, psychologists, or any other mental health providers licensed by the state who help people from a Christian perspective.
