LEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS

CB EmbryLEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS — Another Republican politician has appointed himself Bathroom Cop — this time it’s Kentucky state Sen. C.B. Embry Jr. The senator’s action was triggered by a Louisville, Kentucky high school’s adoption of a pro-transgender student access policy last year.

Embry has introduced legislation to divvy students up according to “biological sex” and forbid trans kid from using the bathroom that doesn’t match their ‘birth sex’.  Trans kids would be limited to ‘single-stall’ restrooms.

Here’s the perverse twist: Embry proposes that each student “offended” by finding a trans person in their school bathroom will be entitled to $2,500 from the school.

There’s other ugliness in this legislation, including the senator’s insistence that his bill demands ’emergency’ legislative action, but the ridiculous idea that schools pay out money to “offended” kids makes Sen. Embry an automatic entry into the Transphobe Hall of Shame.
