Disguised as a safety issue, the Texas Privacy Act, also known as SB6, seeks to ban transgender individuals from using the bathroom of the gender with which they identify.
It is and always will be illegal to harm or harass someone in a restroom. There has been no increase in public safety incidents in Texas cities that currently allow people to use the bathroom of the gender with which they identify.
Passing the bill would harm Texas business to the tune of $8 billion dollars. Just ask North Carolina.
A bathroom is not where women and children are at risk. Where our public bathrooms are concerned, transgender people are the real targets: 70% of transgender men and women report having been verbally or physically attacked while using a restroom.
