This is one where we need to get rid of a BSC Republican in favor of one more closely aligned with Hutchinson who more closely represents the views of the district. She is also the author of the bathroom bill which many opposed due to its lack of a true issue and more an attack on the rights of individuals. Bathroom bills are just dog-whistle issues that right wingers like to use to rile up the base. They do nothing to address any real problem.

Those of us to the left of Asa agree with you, RBear. Especially since I'm transgender and sat in committee last year opposing her bathroom bill and other legislative attacks on us.

Women

Hey RBB - Just curious, did you desire to go from boy to girl or from girl to boy?
.
As to the bathroom bill, you seem to support attacks on little girls who desire to feel safe in vulnerable environments. How is their desire to feel safe less important than the desires of a 50 year old man dressed like a woman to urinate in the stall next to the little girl?
