Texas LT Gov Dan Patrick, FRC partner attacking Transgender Lives

Dan Patrick FRC

Dan Patrick goes off the rails partnering with the Family Research Council, a known anti-LGBT hate group to promote SB6 the Texas transgender bathroom bill.

We know it’s going to be a tough fight,” Patrick said at a Capitol news conference while introducing SB6 a “Women’s Privacy Act” declaring it a ‘bipartisan’ effort supported by all.

Patrick knew SB6 was doomed if it appeared to target transgender people as it has been long established that we pose no threat in bathrooms.

“Transgender people have been going into restrooms for a long time and there hasn’t been an issue that I know of.” Patrick said rebranding the bathroom bill the “women’s privacy act” to dubious Texas Business leaders.

Patricks is revealing his transphobic and homophobic nature by partnering with this known hate group. Patrick is blowing the dog whistle hoping for a transphobic redux of the Houston HERO debacle. Incredibly, the FRC campaign which featured Patrick is called “Good for Business!

While Dan Patrick’s appearance in begins midway the entire video is well worth watching. Despite their best efforts it clearly illustrates that bigots like Patrick initiated this attack against trans people and weren’t aware of us until after they lost the marriage equality battle. They now see this as the first step in demonizing the entire LGBT community, passage of enhanced religious freedom leading to an eventual overturning of Obergefell v. Hodges.

A lot has happened since Dan Patrick introduced SB6. It has since been condemned by top Texas Lawmen teachers, Business, collegiate and professional sports, travel, media, technology, medical, entertainment and hospitality industries.

Texas House Speaker Joe Straus slammed SB6(R) “friviouls unneessary and silly” comparing it to a bill making a cannon the official gun of Texas.

One Response to Texas LT Gov Dan Patrick, FRC partner attacking Transgender Lives

    Doesn’t Dan Patrick have anything more important to do than pursue making the lives of innocent transgender folks lives harder than they’ve already been? Certainly an elected official as high as his office is can find something more important to address than this. He’s an embarrassment to the state of Texas and a nuisance to everyone else.
