A public safety bill has been introduced in the Florida legislature. CS/CS/HB 583 – Single-Sex Public Facilities states:
Provides purpose & legislative findings; requires that use of single-sex public facilities be restricted to persons of sex for which facility is designated; prohibits knowingly & willfully entering single-sex public facility designated for or restricted to persons of other sex; provides criminal penalties; provides private cause of action against violators; provides exemptions; provides applicability with respect to other laws; provides for preemption.
This bill has got transgenders, homosexuals, bisexuals, Equality Florida and the ACLU in an uproar.
Chris Justice from the Broward/Palm Beach New Times reports:
[Republican Representative, District 118] Frank Artiles’ restroom bill that is being criticized as an antitransgender ordinance has passed its second hurdle in 12 days. On Tuesday, the House Government Operations Subcommittee voted to approve the bill 7-4. Back on March 5, the House Civil Justice Subcommittee approved it with a 9-5 vote.
The bill (HB 583) proposes a measure that would have a person thrown in jail for a least a year for using a public restroom that doesn’t match his or her gender. Artiles says the measure is about public safety and says it’s meant to deter potential predators from going into a restroom and doing harm to someone.
Anti transgender? Isn’t protecting the public from perverts a good thing? Who wants someone entering any public bathroom, like in one of Florida’s K-12 schools, of the opposite sex? Why the ACLU and Equality Florida.
Making that a crime and allowing those subjected to such behavior is acting in the public’s interest. The bill has been through two committees, one more is needed to get it to the floor.
Restoring Liberty’s Joe Miller reports, “Texas Republican state Rep. James White has said that the state’s unconstitutional ban on same-sex sodomy should not be repealed for ‘public health’ reasons and to stop bestiality… Even though the Supreme Court struck down the sodomy law in its 2003 Lawrence v. Texas decision, White insisted that it should be kept on the books. The law specifically bans ‘deviant sexual intercourse with another individual of the same sex.’”
Public safety, especially for underage children, is the focus of the Florida bill. It is a fact that all pederasts (older men/women who pray on little boys/girls) are homosexuals. Keeping them out of public bathrooms is an imperative, along with pedophiles.
Can someone say common sense?
