Canadians: Tell your MP to stop the ‘bathroom bill’
My fellow Canadians,
If you have not already done so, now is the time to write your MP and urge him or her to oppose the ‘trans’ bill (C-389), which will add the ambiguous phrases “gender identity” and “gender expression” to the Canada Human Rights Act and the Criminal Code.
This bill, proposed by the NDP’s ‘LGBT’ critic Bill Siksay, is merely the latest attempt by the homosexualist lobby to force their ideology on our families. It will lead to even greater restrictions on our freedoms as we’ve seen with other concessions to homosexualists, like the protections based on “sexual orientation” and the legalization of same-sex “marriage.”
There appears to have been some collusion on this bill between the NDP and the Conservative government. Pro-family groups are warning that there is a grave danger the bill could pass, and it could come up for a vote anytime. Very few people are even aware that this is coming down the pipe, because there’s been almost nothing on it from the mainstream media.
Here’s the letter I wrote to my MP today:
I am writing as a constituent to ask you to oppose Bill C-389, which seeks to enshrine protections based on “gender identity” and “gender expression.”
While the bill would seem to prevent unjust discrimination, it actually presents a grave danger to families, particularly women and children.
Given that the bill gives no definitions for the terms it proposes to add to the Criminal Code and the Human Rights Act, the interpretations will be wide and potentially disastrous.
It will lead to male cross-dressers being allowed into women’s bathrooms. Just this fall, the Maine Human Rights Commission ruled that a school must allow a boy to use the school’s girls’ bathroom. By putting more men in women’s bathrooms, C-389 will put women and young girls at greater risk of attacks in these bathrooms. How will she know if this man is an attacker or simply a cross-dresser?
Further, the bill treats what amounts to a disorder (called gender identity disorder) in the eyes of many psychologists as a normal mental state, and thus normalizes mental illness. This could make it even more difficult for those who struggle with GID to obtain treatment.
Again,————, I would urge you to vote this bill down and find ways to strengthen families rather than further endanger them.
