Repeal of Washington Gender Expression Rule fails

Back in January, the State of Washington’s Human Rights Commission Issued a state wide rule. This rule allowed people who were gender confused to use which facility and dressing area to which they felt they belonged.

Of course, this means that the man or woman who believes themselves to be the opposite sex will now be allowed to use the bathroom/dressing room/locker room with those of the opposite sex. Men will have to be allowed to dress and change with women.

But this is not the worst part. It lays on the unconfused person the burden of change. If a woman is uncomfortable with a man standing naked in the women’s dressing room, then she should leave. She has no right to feel comfortable. She is not the victim, the man standing before her with his man-parts hanging out is the victim.

According to Christian News, immediate action was taken by Sen. Doug Erickson. He proposed a bill which would have struck down the commission’s ruling. This bill likewise would have prohibited the Commission from making further such rulings.

In the end, the bill failed by one vote 25-24. Three Republicans voted against the measure: Sen. Joe Fain, R-Auburn; Sen. Andy Hill, R-Redmond and Sen. Steve Litzow, R-Mercer Island. Two Democrats voted in favor: Sen. Tim Sheldon, D-Potlatch and Sen. Jim Hargrove, D-Hoquiam.

Though the bill fell one vote short, there is still a movement in the state legislature to see this ruling overturned. Erickson says that there will soon be an initiative started to strike down the Commission’s ruling.

We can only hope that those in Washington State who is appalled by such things will call on their elected officials to back the move to repeal such perverse rulings.
