KY Repugs Put Trans Teens in Danger

All this bill needs is a monitoring mechanism to count the number of hateful, freakazoid attacks on trans kids just trying to use the bathroom.

Jack Brammer at the Herald:

Without providing much notice, the Senate Education Committee on Monday night revisited a bill that would require transgender students to use the bathroom that matches their biological sex or to seek special accommodations, such as a unisex bathroom.

The bill failed to get out of committee Thursday because it did not have the necessary seven votes to be sent to the full Senate.

But the panel approved Senate Bill 76 on an 8-1 vote on Monday night, minutes after Senate President Robert Stivers, R-Manchester, told reporters he didn't know whether the bill was on the committee's agenda.
Hey, he's a repug and his mouth is moving; of course he's lying.
Chris Hartman, director of the Fairness Campaign, said the Senate was "prioritizing discrimination." He called the panel's actions "ludicrous, willful, and mean-spirited" and contended the bill violated federal laws governing equal treatment of male and female students.

He said he did not know the committee would revisit the bill, which is backed by The Family Foundation of Kentucky, until "about 30 seconds before they did it. No agenda of bills was ever posted for public consideration."

Hartman noted that two members were absent from Thursday's committee meeting and three members were not present Monday, including Democrat Gerald Neal and Republican Julie Raque Adams, both of Louisville. They voted against the bill on Thursday.
Hey, they're repugs in public office; of course they cheated.

You know what, all those repugs in the state House and Senate look funny to me, like they're not wearing the right clothes. How about a bill forcing everyone who votes for this bill to publicly, on live teevee, strip naked to prove they are accurately portraying the genitals they were born with?

Vicious, hateful motherfuckers. Vote them out of office next year!
