Radical Left Democrats Propose ‘Transgender Bill of Rights’

 July 2, 2022

Enshrining “gender identity” into discrimination law and prohibiting religious objections, radical House Democrats introduced a bill on Tuesday called  the “Transgender Bill of Rights”. This bill, led by Reps. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) David Cicilline (D-RI), Marie Newman (D-IL), Mark Takano (D-CA) and Ritchie Torres (D-NY) , would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964, outlawing discrimination on the basis of “gender identity” in, public accommodations, federally funded programs and activities.

The bill-

“explicitly clarif[ies] that it is illegal to discriminate on the basis of…gender identity or sex characteristics in public accommodations and services on religious grounds…”

-Proposed “Transgender Bill of Rights”

Out of touch with the views of the majority of Americans, 60 percent of whom believe sex is determined by biology, according to recent polling, this legislation also takes aim at Republican state laws that protect women and girls’ spaces. Additionally, the bill would force states to allow males, who believe they are females, to play women and girls’ sports, irrespective of any males’ biological advantages in sports.

Also, another element of this bill, would force schools to allow students to use “facilities that best align with their gender identity.” This is without regard or protections, for the potential for males dressed as females to assault women and girls in bathrooms, locker rooms etc.. Literally, this bill flies in the face of common sense and puts those females who are not declared “transgender” at risk for their own invasion of privacy and assault.

According to a new NPR/Ipsos poll, giving transgender people access to women and girls’ spaces and sports teams is also largely unpopular with voters, with 63 percent in opposition.

This legislation would also ban “conversion therapy”, essentially a leftist label for any kind of therapy that rejects the idea that people can choose their own sex. Notably devoid of its historical context, which sometimes involved brutal and even illegal treatments perpetrated against same-sex attracted people, the new-definition of “conversion therapy” focuses on eliminating any verbiage that does not include “Gender-affirming” language. This reflects a relabeling of healthcare that describes the far-lefts intention to make mutilation sound like a compassionate course of action. Further, the bill would eliminate any government restrictions on access to “gender-affirming” medical care for adults and minors.

This type of care could involve:

  • Administration of puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones, of which many long-term side effects are unknown, as well as sex change surgeries.
  • Some surgeries that include the creation of breasts, cutting off breasts, and surgery on the genitals or reproductive organs, including building penises from the tissue of another body part.

Legislatively, this bill would also prohibit states from punishing healthcare providers who provide sex change treatments to “transgender and nonbinary people,” including states laws such as Alabama’s, which makes it a felony to conduct gender transition surgeries or provide puberty blockers and other hormone treatments to children under the age of 19. It literally would across the board seek to control the laws already in place throughout the nation, subverting the will of the people there, as a protection for this fringe group of identity challenged persons.

Sadly, this legislation just seeks to force the transgender issue, without regard for those already struggling with it. Truly, there is “wisdom in the council of many” and teenagers need time to grow up. Life looks a lot different as you gain some maturity – by then, if someone has not ensured that time is allotted for decisions made – the brashness of youth can be devastating.

And while they are at it, these radical leftists have included language that would seek to codify Roe v. Wade-

“guaranteeing the right to abortion” for “everyone, including transgender and nonbinary people.”

-Proposed “Transgender Bill of Rights”

This legislation flatly seeks to side-step last month’s ruling by the Supreme Court’s, overturning  Roe, which sent the abortion issue back to the states for their own legislation on the matter – seeking to pass a national abortion law instead. Joe Biden is backing a nationwide abortion law, now that the court has returned the decision-making powers to the states. Clearly, the man who cannot hold his own press conference without assistance from his handlers, is making power posturing statements on behalf of his administration cronies.

However, more voters favor allowing states to decide abortion law or a federal ban, rather than a national law allowing abortions. Likely focusing on the need for compassion, on behalf of these gender challenged individuals, this proposed national right to abortion (slipped into the bill), most definitely does not consider the life being snuffed out. In their incredibly insatiable, selfish focus – the sponsors of this bill, seek to get what they want at all cost moving against any state’s laws to do so. Apparently, they see themselves above the Constitution.

Additionally, this legislation proposes that “gender identification” requirements be eliminated from government documents, suggesting an  “X” marker be provided on those documents where this is not possible.

This radical legislation is very similar to the Equality Act, which passed the House last February, in 2021. However, this proposed “Transgender Bill of Rights” carries far less Democrat support than the Equality Act did, with 85 co-sponsors compared to 224. Hopefully, this bill will see a quick death of its own.

Again, in radically-leftist, progressive Democrat manner, this legislation seeks to, in general, subvert the will of the states, proposing a federal law that protects these “gender challenged individuals”, despite the fact that this legislation  directly conflicts with laws across the U.S. that are already in place. Further, this bill places those gender specific individuals (women and girls) in jeopardy, and in general forces an agenda on the American citizenry in some or most cases that they have already taken a position on.

“The State governments possess inherent advantages, which will ever give them an influence and ascendancy over the National Government, and will forever preclude the possibility of federal encroachments. That their liberties, indeed, can be subverted by the federal head, is repugnant to every rule of political calculation.”
