Kentucky Puts a Bounty on Transgender Students

Trans students should steer clear of Kentucky. It’s not gonna be a safe place for them. Or should we say an even unsafe environment now. Kentucky Senator C.B. Embry proposed new legislation that will turn high school students into bounty hunters. If they catch a transgender student using the wrong bathroom, they’d get $2,500 from the courts. That’s a lot of Playstation games. U.S. News reports:

Kentucky students using sex-segregated bathrooms and locker rooms could win $2,500 if they catch a member of the excluded biological sex there, under proposed legislation.

The bill intends to crack down on school employees who allow transgender students to use bathrooms and locker rooms designated for the opposite biological sex.

Students who sue in state courts, the bill says, would be entitled to $2,500 for each violation and are also eligible for damages for psychological and emotional harm. The offending school would foot the bill, along with all attorney fees.

C’mon now. What psychological harm? Is it any more harm than living in a repressive state where no one can be who they want to be? Or having to deal with a mindset from the 1950s? A tornado of transgender people should descend on Senator Embry’s office and pee all over this bill. And Bruce Jenner should lead the invasion.

In case you didn’t know, Embry: Transgender people don’t want to use the restroom of ‘their’ correct gender to prey on your wife and kids. They want to use it because they need to PEE! It is really simple. Three are two sides to this debate. One side has lives that are being physically attacked, publicly disenfranchised, and socially condemned by members of the other. One side has it’s sensibilities disturbed and feels icky and repulsed by the other, Both sides are U.S. citizens and deserve equality. One of these two sides obviously needs protected from the other to achieve… Read more »

The state is correct. There is nothing repressive about keeping other genders out of the designated bathroom. They should go where they are supposed to, not just wherever they feel like going.

Except they’re not? Please look up the difference between gender and sex.

What’s ironic about this is that ‘bounty hunting’ is illegal in Kentucky. Still a fucked up policy, though.
