[bold] Amend The US "Equality Act" [/bold]

[quote] Protections for lesbians, gays and bisexuals are long overdue, but this bill devastates women's rights

[quote] Since 1974, when U.S. Representatives Bella Abzug and Ed Koch first introduced the Equality Act (H.R.14752) in the House, to 2019 when the Equality Act (H.R. 5) passed the House for the first time (but was ignored by the Senate), lesbians, gays and bisexuals have been working to get ‘sexual orientation’ included in federal civil rights protections, specifically the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Depending on whether you look at housing or public accommodations, 27 or 28 states still lack protections for sexual orientation—meaning LGB people can be denied housing or services based on their sexuality, with no recourse to federal civil rights remedies. Those protections are urgently needed.

[quote] But since 2007, ‘gender identity’ has been included along with ‘sexual orientation’ in the repeatedly introduced Equality Act (EA), and crucially, H.R. 5 bears little resemblance to the EA of 1974.

[quote] Unfortunately, in the current EA, ‘gender identity’ is conflated with ‘sex’ in the proposal, effectively decimating women’s rights.

[quote] We’ve united with Feminists in Struggle and others to form the Coalition for Feminist Amendments to the Equality Act, and have written to the Senate stating why we believe that the EA should be amended. We reproduce that letter here for your information, and encourage supporters to write and call both their Senators and Representatives, urging them to support the Feminist Amendments to the Equality Act developed by Feminists in Struggle, and supported by LGB Alliance USA.

by Anonymousreply 23Last Saturday at 5:15 PM

November 9th, 2020

To members of the U.S. Senate,

The late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg devoted her life to fighting for legal protections on the basis of biological sex. Congress should honor that legacy, and the legacy of so many other women who’ve fought to secure our rights, but most importantly, Congress has a duty to uphold our most basic human rights protections. The current version of the Equality Act (HR 5), now pending in the Senate Judiciary Committee, will risk erasing sex as a protected class in law, weakening protections and undermining the existing rights of females as a unique class, and the progress that’s been made toward achieving equality.

The Coalition for Feminist Amendments to the Equality Act (“CoFA”) is a national alliance of feminist and LGB organizations and individuals. We write to urge hearings on our proposal to amend the Equality Act (to receive testimony on its many problematic provisions), and to provide vital input on how those issues may be fixed. The Feminist Amendments expands civil rights laws to cover lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender, and other individuals who don’t conform to gender stereotypes (roles traditionally imposed based on one’s sex), while continuing to uphold sex-based protections. In doing so, everyone’s rights are protected.

We support many of the positive provisions put forth by the Equality Act. Federal statutory protections for lesbians, gay men, and bisexuals based on sexual orientation are long overdue. We applaud the closure of the loophole that allows the use of religious freedom as legal grounds to allow any person to flout civil rights laws.

At the same time, the Equality Act’s attempt to protect transgender individuals from discrimination — through the creation of “gender identity” as a protected class — creates ambiguity, confusion, and a conflict of rights that must be addressed. The term “gender identity” is subjective, in that it describes a state of mind that may or may not be manifested in dress, grooming, or behavior. This subjectivity opens a loophole ripe for abuse. As it’s used in HR-5, the term provides no objective test useful to a court, which will ultimately litigate the conflicts sure to arise from this legislation. Failure to address these conflicts will threaten long-settled statutory and case law developed to protect the rights of females as a distinctive class.

More importantly, “gender” or “gender identity” is conflated with “sex” throughout the bill, and risks eliminating sex as a protected class in civil rights law. Merging two distinct groups — who have different sets of experiences, discrimination and marginalization — is detrimental to preserving human rights protections currently afforded to females as a uniquely subjugated class.

Female only facilities are an important legacy of women’s organizing, key to the protection of the female sex against male-pattern violence and to the broader participation of women in public life. It’s vital that these basic human rights provisions remain in place.

by Anonymousreply 24Last Saturday at 5:15 PM

Male-pattern violence against females is so well-documented that Congress passed the Violence Against Women Act in an attempt to protect them from sexual and physical assault. However, such predatory violence remains pervasive as demonstrated by the “Me Too” movement and numerous well-documented instances of such violations by males in the entertainment business, the military, and even Congress. A Swedish study showed that this pattern of behavior is not mitigated by male-to-female sex reassignment surgery.

Moreover, the current bill’s “gender identity” provisions require that males who identify as women, including those with intact male genitalia (85-90% of males who identify as women retain male genitalia), must be admitted, solely on the basis of “self-identification,” into female facilities, such as, rape crisis centers, battered women’s shelters, homeless shelters, prisons, hospital rooms, communal showers, changing rooms, restrooms, and nursing homes.

Social scientists and international policy bodies have underscored the importance of maintaining separate statistics based on sex, as a key means of tracking disparities between the sexes, recording accurate data, and measuring our progress on addressing sex-based discrimination. In addition, there are multiple instances, such as within the context of health care, where having accurate information about a person’s sex, is vital, even life-saving.

by Anonymousreply 25Last Saturday at 5:16 PM

By eliminating sex as a protected class, the bill, as currently written, would:

· Undermine targeted remedies for the exclusion or under-representation of women and girls in education, and in jobs and professions traditionally held by men

· Eradicate competitive women’s sports by undermining Title IX protections

· Make it impossible to measure (and remedy) disparity between the sexes, such as the pay gap and domestic violence

· Prevent the gathering of accurate crime and health statistics

See attached fact sheets for more information on the impact of erasing sex as a protected class in civil rights law, by allowing the concept of “gender” or “gender identity” to override “sex.”

The Feminist Amendments eliminate “gender identity” and instead establish two new categories in civil rights law: “sexual orientation” and “sex-stereotyping.” Doing so more effectively protects all classes, while not negating sex-based protections.

These amendments contain clear definitions of “sex” and “sex-stereotyping,” that will preserve female facilities and programs, allowing women and girls to participate fully in public life. (See attached.)

At the same time, the Feminist Amendments protect lesbians, gay men, bisexuals (and all people who don’t conform to imposed gender roles and stereotypes), including transgender people, from discrimination in employment, housing, credit, and in places of public accommodation.

These amendments also allow for the establishment of “gender neutral” facilities for individuals who may feel safer or more comfortable in such spaces, so long as the availability and access to female only facilities is not diminished. Thus, these amendments allow each protected class to continue to make progress toward achieving true equality.

One hundred years after women’s suffrage, women still get paid less, are denied equal opportunities in the workplace, and continue to be underrepresented in many fields and positions of economic and political leadership in our society, because of their sex. Females still suffer disproportionately from domestic violence and rape because of their sex. Discrimination on the basis of sex will not end if we eliminate sex as a stand-alone protected class.

No Senate action should be taken on the Equality Act without hearings to gather evidence on the conflicts outlined in this letter. We offer the Feminist Amendments to the Equality Act as our contribution to this much needed work.

We and members of our constituent organizations are prepared to sit down with you and members of your staff to discuss our concerns and appropriate strategies we might collaborate on to secure the hearing anticipated in the previous paragraph.

It is our fervent wish that you honor the legacy of our most revered jurist RBG by adopting the Feminist Amendments to the Equality Act to continue her fight to protect women and girls on the basis of sex.

A big part of the reason why average liberal Democrats are going along with this trans monstrosity is because of the LGB before the T.

They have no idea what the real deal with the T is and all the mainstream platforms censor content and shut down accounts that provide counter points.

The anti-gay troll made 40 posts in this thread attacking LGB rights.

by Anonymousreply 152Last Saturday at 10:51 PM

Quoting from a post elsewhere:

Here is how the EA redefines sex.

"(4) SEX.—The term ‘sex’ includes—

“(A) a sex stereotype;

“(B) pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition;

“(C) sexual orientation or gender identity; and

“(D) sex characteristics, including intersex traits.

To make matters worse, the EA defines says that access to sex-specific facilities, programs and provisions should be based on "gender identity" rather than biological sex, and defines "gender identity" as follows:

“(2) GENDER IDENTITY.—The term ‘gender identity’ means the gender-related identity, appearance, mannerisms, or other gender-related characteristics of an individual, regardless of the individual’s designated sex at birth."

This worrying language means that males….acting out their fantasies would have more right to use female spaces, to participate in female sports and to obtain female services like gynecological care, female-only roommates in nursing homes and intimate hospital or home care from female-only aides and nurses than most …. girls and women who do not have a "gender identity" and do not spend [their] lives performing femininity and conforming to regressive sex stereotypes through our "appearance, mannerisms or other gender-related characteristics."

Finally, though this whole bill is built around "gender identity" and the meaning of "gender identity" in turn is dependent on having a clear definition of what the hell "gender" means, nowhere in the EA is "gender" defined. The bill doesn't even attempt to define it!

The EA has to be one of the most poorly-written, confusing, confounding pieces of legislation ever written in the English language. Yet it sailed through the House, 236-173.

The "all the things you guys say about trans are things conservatives say about gays" argument doesn't work here. Conservatives oppose gays because of religious reasons, that is literally the only reason. Chances are if you're not a jesus freak or you didn't grow up a jesus freak then you don't hate gay people. However, the reasons gay people hate trans people are directly tied to how they are negatively impacting our own identity. They have taken over our community and our civil rights movement, hijacked the discussions and made themselves the center of the acronym LGBT, and pushed gay men to the back (some even claiming that gay men are the least oppressed minority). They've been working to pass legislation that allows a parent to force gay children to transition into women if that parent doesn't agree with homosexuality. They've manipulated charity groups so that money to would go to causes like fighting homophobic laws in other countries now goes exclusively to trans people.

Conservatives hating gays and gays hating trans people are not comparable in the slightest. Gay people only affect conservatives by challenging what their religion tells them is right. Trans people affect gay people by actively working to oppress us and turn our fight for civil rights into something they can use for their own benefit. The only way conservatives hating gays and gays hating trans people are comparable is that they both center around hate, but sometimes it's okay to hate someone when that someone is actively trying to erase who you are and your community's civil rights battles for their own personal gain.

r159, Yes, all of those things will now be protected in law and many of them are actually already legal through stealth legislation. In other countries where this has already been allowed to happen and in our own prisons where this has been enacted, as one might expect, the number of rapes and other assaults against women have sky rocketed. Additionally, in Canada, it is now impossible to get any crime/health data (and other data more important to women like equal pay and domestic violence) that is of any use whatsoever because its no longer broken down by sex but by gender feels. Per the FBI, Gay men are still victims of the most hate crimes of any group in the country. 4 women a day are murdered by men, in the US. So, it's not a hate crime to assault or kill a woman for being female, despite murder being the number one cause of death of pregnant women, but it will be a hate crime to misgender a man who claims he's a woman.

You need to go for a walk or something and get off Twitter it’s not good for you. Go talk to your family or friends (if u have any) about something other than ‘TR-NS’ (lol) and turn your life around. Because you’re going in the wrong direction.

It's probably Matt, r212, and yeah, he's for real, not to mention more than a little bigoted and mentally ... confused. All you can do is shake your head and walk away and hope he gets help.

I will not be lectured by a misogynistic homophobic xenophobe who is too lazy to spell out the word you.

There was a recent Jezehell article on plans to make misogyny a hate crime in the UK. At a bare minimum, you would expect the commenters on a feminist website to welcome this news. Instead, the very first comment was that this was worrying, because the UK is transphobic and this law might be used to oppress trans "women".

SJWs are beyond parody at this point. They don't seem to understand that they've gone so far to the left that they've swung all the way around back to the right. The criticism Jezehell launched at Pete Buttigieg for not being LGBTQRSTUV enough is a prime example - why did they single him out? Why didn't they publish articles about how Kamala and her husband aren't the right sort of "straight"?

R215 I’m not saying I agree with all those takedowns but you can’t recognize the inherent contradiction in a gay man supposedly representing gay interests that’s very publicly Christian? And I don’t mean spiritual I mean subscribing to Christian organizations within the US. Now c’mon now.

There was apparently a toddler’s genderqueer-coming-out party at a church recently. It’s making the rounds online.

Tim Dillon summed it up thusly:

[quote] The video of the toddler being forced to come out to a room full of people in a weird church setting is incredibly uncomfortable to watch. It’s not at all how sexuality/gender identity should develop. It’s clearly performative for the mother. @kittypurrzog agrees with me

Katie Herzog, formerly of The Stranger (Seattle), follows up:

[quote] Definitely. The only thing toddlers should be forced to do is pageants.

These children are like vegan cats: you know somebody else is calling the shots here.

This is child abuse. After this, only gay men and lesbians should be allowed anywhere near children.
