Washington Post Spins so Men Can Enter Houston Ladies’ Rooms

The left of center Washington Post has entered into a city election campaign involving LGBT rights and access by men dressed as women into women’s restrooms. The Post’s “A perverted campaign against LGBT rights in Houston,” assaults ads shown in Houston, Texas, opposing a city ordinance that has been dubbed “the bathroom ordinance.” The author writes, “What goes too far is this bigoted ad and its perversion of the facts. It is an outright lie to say ‘any man at any time could enter a woman’s bathroom at any time simply by claiming to be a woman that day.’ Such a statement reveals a willful ignorance of what it means to be transgender.” The ordinance has been submitted to the voters in Houston during the city’s November election. The article contains a link to a Post article entitled, “Bruce Jenner’s teachable moment on being transgender.”
