Alabama city passes anti-LGBT bathroom ordinance punishable by $500 fine, 6 months in jail

An Alabama city has joined North Carolina in passing a bathroom ban against transgender people.The city of Oxford unanimously passed the ordinance Tuesday criminalizing using any public restrooms that don’t correspond with a person’s gender listed on his or her birth certificate.Anyone found violating the ordinance could be face a $500 fine or up to six months in jail.The ordinance will also apply to any public changing rooms and locker rooms.Council president Steven Waits said the law was “not out of concerns for the 0.3 percent of population who identify as transgender,” but “to protect our women and children,” the Anniston Star reported.
The anti-LGBT law was pushed as a response to Target’s latest policy allowing transgender employees and shoppers to use restrooms based on their gender identity.“We believe that everyone — every team member, every guest, and every community — deserves to be protected from discrimination, and treated equally,” Target announced on its blog.

Well this is definitely going to escalate the legal challenges and this small city is dumb as **** to risk financial ruin if someone is ever arrested. So much for backlash only happening to those who support lgbt

Soon none of them will even be able to afford the lifestyle of this local resident:

A national trend is being set, and a statement is being issued...NO MEN IN WOMEN'S BATHROOMS.

The LGBT community had better start getting used to it. You win some, and you LOOSE some.

This is not a civil rights issue. Biological MEN do not belong in women's bathrooms, regardless how they "feel".

The states and towns that adopt what was started in Texas (I think?) will continue to grow.

Transgendered people are NOT the bad guys here. Neither are the concerned parents.

Not one person would know if a true transgendered person went into the women's room.

These laws are a backlash to an agenda being forced down straight people's throats.

Besides, these laws are unenforceable anyway. What are they going to do? Have everyone going into the ladies room drop their pants or hike their skirts up.

I volunteer to be the inspector, if so.

1.) yeah that was tried agaisnt women and minorities and interracial marriage and gay marriage, it failed and back fired just like this will
2.) they have nothign to worry about because it wont last, in fact in the end its going to help them
3.) 100% false, it most certainly could be a civil rights issue and a 14th issue because they are making laws that punish them and treat them differently. This hsa yet to be determined and while I admit im GUESSING im guessing for equality and rights agsint illogical, dishonest and or misplaced fear.
4.) GOOD! I hipe thats true because again like other issues it will only HELP establish protections for LGBT.
5.) those concerned parents are illogical and over reacting. Just like there were with gay rights.
6.) not necessarily true but you do have a solid point, many people have already been in the bathroom with a trans gendered person and gay etc.
7.) the agenda is made up and nothign is being forced down anybodys throats but again im glad these nutters are freakgin out because they are going to help make happen exactly what the fear more rights and equality for lgbt. Im straight, a parent and a christian, nothing was forced down my throat nor have ilost any rights or had them infringed on.
8.) no but the nutters will start calling the police anytime they see anybody they think could be a different gender . . but I do agree it will be hard to enforce, transgenders have already taken pictures of themselfes in these bathrooms.
9.) guess thats a defintion of you win some and you lose some scenerio :lamo

Why is it all of the really "out there" whack jobs LOVE those laughing ROTFLMAO emoticons?

Talk about predictable behavior.

MEN DO NOT belong in women's bathrooms. Deal with it any way you can. But your posts seem to say you cannot deal with it at all.

It is THE LAW in North Carolina, Texas, and now in this little town in AL. The list will grow. and your strawman absurdities will still be just as silly. Load up a whole lot more of those emoticons, you are going to need them when more and more states and towns adopt these same laws.

This has nothing to do with Gay Rights. It has to do with grown men being in women's bathrooms.

I only discuss political matters with those that do not hurl insults and have the ability to listen to an opposing viewpoint.

You have already proven your mind is closed for the day.

Now turn off the lights and go home.

So now it's gone from a matter that concerned ONLY Transgendered people to including and being vital to Lesbians, Gays, and Bisexuals?

That's ridiculous - and everyone knows it. I think trying to MAKE it about LGB individuals is absurd and they're rolling their eyes at it.

good grief what are you talking about?
Yes your post is absurd . . and most people are rolling there eyes at it

What was ACTUALLY said was this "I hope these nutters keep pushing it and making these laws and ordinances because its only going to help make true what they fear. LGBT having equal rights and or being protected from discrimination. "

That is a factually true statement because thats whats going to happen when . . . wait for it . . . .gender identification and sexual orientation are further protected which those people fear

also news flash . . LGBT GROUPS are fighting against these retarded laws . . .if that fact borhters you maybe write letters to those people and or groups . . .

I can tell you are young and not very experienced with wasting your time.

You seem to actually enjoy it.

I, on the other hand, have learned long ago to bypass time wasting activities.

This is my last response to you.

Please enjoy your time wasting activities. I have FUNNY & POLITICALLY FUNNY PICs to watch.

I also just got my new M14 tiger striped stock in the mail, so I need to install it on my rifle. She is really pretty. She should turn a few heads at the range.

PS...my posts do not need any translation at all, and were very clear to anyone reading them (besides you). Your mind is closed and I would be wasting my time discussing this topic with you.

I see that you've lumped Texas in with Alabama and North Carolina. As a fellow Texan, I present you with this link showing that the Texas legislature has not passed any anti-LGBT laws (yet):

The fact that this is being called an LGBT issue when it really has nothing to do with Lesbians, Gays nor Bi-Sexuals.

Thank you for setting me straight with the facts. I was wrong. (how many times do you hear that on DP?)

When I first made a previous post to that effect, I put a (?) because I was not sure.

Now I AM sure and will not make that mistake again.

Thanks.
