AK Transgender Bathroom Bill Defeated

I’m thankful to the people of Alaska for doing the right thing and defeating such heinous laws. I am waiting for the day some asshole decides to question whether I was born a female. I will sue them for sexual harassment and anything else my lawyer can dream up. Guaranteed. I mean how do you know what gender anyone was born unless you follow them into the bathroom and look at their sex organs?

Voters in Anchorage, Alaska, have narrowly defeated a bill that would have stopped transgender people from using the bathrooms and changing rooms that correspond with their gender identity.

Nearly 53 percent of voters cast their ballots against Proposition 1, which was proposed by nonprofit Christian policy group Alaska Family Action.

Murkowski Backs Gay Marriage

I’m not sure I agree that ‘evolving view’ is overused, but perhaps I am wrong.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) expressed support for gay marriage Wednesday, becoming the third sitting Republican senator to do so.

The Human Rights Campaign, a pro-gay rights group, announced the Alaska senator had backed marriage equality in a statement.

“This is a hard issue. It is hard because marriage is such a deeply personal issue,” Murkowski told Anchorage television station KTUU. “There may be some that when they hear the position that I hold that are deeply disappointed. There may be some that embrace the decision that I have made.”

“I recognize that it is an area that as a Republican I will be criticized for,” she added.

Murkowski had said in March that her views were shifting on the issue. “The term ‘evolving view’ has been perhaps overused, but I think it is an appropriate term for me to use,” she said.
