Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Organizations Debunk 'Bathroom Predator Myth'

A coalition of over 200 national, state and local organizations across the U.S. that work with sexual assault and domestic violence survivors are objecting to the justifications given by lawmakers to forbid transgender people from using the bathroom of their choosing.

These organizations asked for “support of full and equal access for the transgender community," according to a statement on Thursday by a coalition under the advocacy group National Task Force to End Sexual and Domestic Violence Against Women.

This outcry from hundreds of organizations comes after North Carolina passed House Bill 2, a law that bans people from using bathrooms that don't match the sex indicated on their birth certificate.

There is currently no explanation of how the law should be enforced, and "lawmakers proposing these measures could implement enforcement that is a grave and unconstitutional intrusion into people’s privacy," Chase Strangio, staff attorney at the ACLU Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Project and a transgender man, told ABC News today. The ACLU Project is not one of the organizations listed on Thursday’s coalition statement.

1. Thanks for posting this. This is like how they used to project themselves onto gays.

"Ooh if they are gay people they will want to have sex with me". As if gay men just run around witheir Dick out trying to f everything they see - the type of person who said the previous statement was basically saying that THEY would like to do the same.

My standard response was, "Women don't find you attractive why do you think gay men would?"
