Bevin Terrified of Tinkling Trans

As Trevor Noah pointed on the Daily Show, we've all been sharing public toilets with transwomen and transmen all our lives.

Also, that the number of attacks by trans people on cis people in public toilets has now reached a grand total of - wait for it - zero.

In the entire country.

I don't know what Governor Lying Coward's bathroom fears are and I don't want to know.

I do know that these ridiculous bathroom bills have nothing to do with public safety and everything to do with forcing trans people back into the shadows.

From the public statement:

FRANKFORT, KY (May 13, 2016) – Governor Matt Bevin released the following statement regarding President Obama’s proposed bathroom rules for public schools:

“It is difficult to imagine a more absurd federal overreach into a local issue.  Under the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, the federal government has no authority to interfere in local school districts' bathroom policies. The President is not promoting unity. In fact, he is doing quite the opposite. He is intentionally dividing America by threatening to sue or withhold funding from our cash-strapped public schools if they do not agree with his personal opinion on policies that remain squarely in their jurisdiction. They should not feel compelled to bow to such intimidation. My administration is researching the options available for ensuring that this local issue is decided by Kentuckians, not by bureaucrats in Washington.”

This from the turd who began his reign with an attempt to strip higher education funds, based on his core belief that keeping us ignorant and uneducated will serve to further enrich his golden carpetbagger pockets.
