In other words, anyone who tries to stop a biological man who identifies as a woman from using a women’s room would be in violation and could face fines of up to $5,000, if the measure succeeds.
Another plus for supporters is that the ballot language never mentions public restrooms, but rather asks voters whether they are in favor of the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance, “which prohibits discrimination in city employment and city services, city contracts, public accommodations, private employment, and housing” based on the 15 characteristics.
No recent polling on the issue has been released, but Mr. Carlbom said, “When people look at the question as it is on the ballot and are asked the question, ‘Do they support an equal rights ordinance?’ we do very, very well.”
As long as voters understand the connection between Proposition 1 and the public restroom issue, however, Mr. Woodfill is confident the nays will prevail.
“Once folks are educated about what this ordinance means to them in terms of public safety and males being able to enter female restrooms, they overwhelmingly reject it,” Mr. Woodfill said.
It is really very simple for anyone that has ever heard of a "dictionary."
Defintion of "male": a person bearing an X and Y chromosome pair in the cell nuclei and normally having a penis, scrotum, and testicles, and developing hair on the face at adolescence; a boy or man.
Definition of "female": a person bearing two X chromosomes in the cell nuclei and normally having a vagina, a uterus and ovaries, and developing at puberty a relatively rounded body and enlarged breasts, and retaining a beardless face; a girl or woman.
How did we get to the point where state legislatures are actually debating the definition of male and female? They all need to be mailed some dictionaries.
