As millions of Americans are struggling with the rising prices of food and gas, Democrats are using their time to push a new “Transgender Bill of Rights.”
While most Americans try to be sensitive to transgender people, this hardly seems like a priority as millions of people are suffering due to Biden’s economic policies.
At the very least, it seems incredibly tone deaf, especially for a party that’s already facing a major defeat in the November midterms.
The Hill reports:
Democrats unveiling ‘Transgender Bill of Rights’
A group of House Democrats on Tuesday announced they would move to codify federal protections for transgender people.
The proposal, dubbed the “Transgender Bill of Rights,” would codify the Supreme Court’s 2020 Bostock v. Clayton County decision that protects employees against discrimination for being gay or transgender.
The proposal would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to explicitly include protections for gender identity and sex characteristics, expand access to gender-affirming care and ban conversion therapy.
It would also require the attorney general to designate a liaison dedicated to overseeing enforcement of civil rights for transgender people and invest in community services to prevent anti-transgender violence.
Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), the chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and co-chair of the Transgender Equality Task Force, said in a statement that the resolution would ensure transgender people can lead “full, happy lives.”
The bill is getting a lot of valid criticism.
NEW: democrats are pushing a radical bill under the guise of “equality” and LGBT rights. it would mandate gender affirmation therapy under the deceptive language of banning “conversion therapy” and reverse many sex-based rights. this is not equality. https://t.co/QRlCNxfkO1

But in a time where people have much bigger problems & are sick of the indoctrination

Wow, did Bidenflation get solved while I was napping? Did the border get closed? Did gas prices go back below $3/gal? Did all the shelves get stocked? If not, @TheDemocrats are really really screwed in November if this is their priority. #OutOfStep https://t.co/H00Ni5tAZy

Democrats really seem out of step with the public.
