House To Vote On The “Destroying Women’s Sports” And Limiting Religious Freedom Act

Well, not just sports. But, their safety and security in locker rooms, showers, and bathrooms, along with taking away scholarships and so much more. And blowing up the 1st Amendment on religious freedom. Because Democrats priorities do not include getting America back on it’s feet from the pandemic

House To Vote On Equality Act: Here’s What The Law Would Do

The House of Representatives is set to vote this week on the Equality Act, a bill that would ban discrimination against people based on sexual orientation and gender identity. It would also substantially expand the areas to which those discrimination protections apply.

It’s a bill that President Biden said on the campaign trail would be one of his top legislative priorities for the first 100 days of his presidency.

When House Democrats introduced the bill last week, Biden reiterated his support in a statement: “I urge Congress to swiftly pass this historic legislation,” he wrote. “Every person should be treated with dignity and respect, and this bill represents a critical step toward ensuring that America lives up to our foundational values of equality and freedom for all.”

But it’s also controversial — while the Equality Act has broad support among Democrats, many Republicans oppose it, fearing that it would infringe upon religious objections. (snip)

The Civil Rights Act covered discrimination in certain areas, like employment and housing. The Equality Act would expand that to cover federally funded programs, as well as “public accommodations” — a broad category including retail stores and stadiums, for example.

(“Public accommodations” is also a category that the bill broadens, to include online retailers and transportation providers, for example. Because of that, many types of discrimination the Civil Rights Act currently prohibits — like racial or religious discrimination — would now also be explicitly covered at those types of establishments.)

One upshot of all of this, then, is that the Equality Act would affect businesses like flower shops and bakeries that have been at the center of discrimination court cases in recent years — for example, a baker who doesn’t want to provide a cake for a same-sex wedding.

Importantly, the bill also explicitly says that it trumps the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (commonly known by its acronym RFRA). The law, passed in 1993, set a higher bar for the government to defend laws if people argued those laws infringed upon religious freedom.

Well, you’ll have almost every single Republican in the House voting against it, and you won’t get 60 Senators to vote for ending debate. The only way to attempt to pass it in the Senate is by nuking the filibuster, and Dems might not get 50 votes for passage even with the nuking. And would expressly violate the 1st Amendment, leading to an immediate constitutional challenge going right to the Supreme Court. The NPR article barely touches upon the other big question

The Equality Act Makes Women Unequal

All people are created equal, but Congress is considering a bill that would make some people more equal than others.

H.R. 5, styled the Equality Act, would redefine “sex” under federal civil-rights laws to include “sexual orientation” and “gender identity,” overriding basic biology along with millennia of tradition.

This isn’t only a question of semantics. Nor is it merely an attempt to prohibit employment discrimination against sexual minorities. A 2020 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court already does that.

The Equality Act would go much further by making it illegal to distinguish “identity” from biology and thereby prioritize transgender people over women. By erasing sex as a distinct legal category, the measure threatens to open up female-only spaces and opportunities designed to increase representation for girls to biological men, which can endanger the safety of women and girls.

The Equality Act would threaten the existence of women’s prisons, public-school girls’ locker rooms, and women’s and girls’ sports teams. It would limit freedom of speech, freedom of association, accurate data collection, and scientific inquiry. It would threaten the rights of physicians who doubt the wisdom of performing life-changing, reproduction-limiting procedures, and parents who seek to protect their minor children from such treatment.

This isn’t hyperbole. Similar state laws have already resulted in such harm. In California, Catholic hospitals have faced lawsuits for declining to perform life-altering “gender affirmation” surgery in September 2016. In Connecticut, two biologically male athletes won a combined 15 girls state championship races, allegedly taking opportunities for further competition and scholarships from female runners in June 2019. Alaska’s Equal Rights Commission opened an investigation into a women’s shelter after it turned away a biological male in September 2019. H.R. 5 would impose the most extreme form of these laws on the whole country.

Hey, female Democrats and female Republican Trump haters, this is what you voted for. Are you good with Democrats taking away so much from women? Are you good with women losing college scholarships and more to biological males with mental issues who believe they’re female? Do you want them in your female only places? Instead of voting for the $1,400 checks (didn’t Biden promise $2,000 specifically?) and important recovery measures, they want to destroy women.

Arkansas is the latest state to be working on a law to protect women from trans males in K-12. Many other states will soon go the same route, having to pass laws that, in years past, would have been unnecessary because Americans had common sense and understood the difference between male and female. It’s insane that we even have to have a discussion on this.

Something tells me Newman would be pretty upset if a male walked into a bathroom, shower, or locker room she’s in, proclaiming to be a women.

    And yet we’ll never see this kind of shit in the Fake News Media nor on the Social Media sites. Just like Twitter did just cutting off CPAC because of “hate”. (Anything not condemning White people is hate now as are all non fascist opinions). But here’s Hunter Xiden, the son of the Fake president and part of the fascist junta ruling the New America who always has something to give (even if the media tries to hide it like they do his father).

    “China, House of Sweden, Hunter Biden, Iceland, Icelandic embassy, racism, Sweden, Swedish Embassy, Swedish Government

    Hunter Biden has generated a huge scandal in Scandinavian media after details were leaked concerning his sordid sex affairs in the House of Sweden, in Washington, DC. The scandal-ridden American presidential son has accused the Swedish Government owned property of “racism” to deflect from his latest wrongdoings.

    The “racism” smears came after authorities threatened to evict Biden after he was caught illegally smuggling a stripper and a homeless black woman in the exclusive building that houses the Swedish and Icelandic embassies.

    Hunter Biden secretly smuggled the women into the Swedish government-owned building through a backdoor entrance. Since 2017, when Hunter first moved into his $400,000 a month office, he has repeatedly refused to follow the building’s proper security checks. The safety rules state that all visitors must pass the main entrance and the metal detectors.

    Furthermore, Biden, who is under investigation for his business contacts with China, also asked the House of Sweden for an extra key to his suite for a Chinese businessman accused of corruption.

    “Hunter Biden, the scandal-ridden son of the American president, accused the National Property Board of racism. This after the Swedish Board threatened to evict him after he smuggled a stripper and a homeless black woman into the House of Sweden in Washington.”
