At National Review Online is the following description of the Violence against Women Act: “[It] includes provisions regarding homosexual, bisexual, and transgender victims of domestic violence.”
This is true. And here’s Texas Congressman Steve Stockman’s reaction to the transgender part (as also reported at NRO):
This is helping the liberals, this is horrible. Unbelievable. What really bothers — it’s called a women’s act, but then they have men dressed up as women, they count that. Change-gender, or whatever. How is that — how is that a woman?
Um. Is he serious?
Transgender discrimination is real. It’s ugly. It needs to stop.
