See the picture of this old son-of-bitch above? In my opinion it should be on a WANTED poster for the criminally STUPID!
On Jan. 12, he spoke before the State House assemblage and stated:
“I believe if I was standing at a dressing room and my wife or one of my daughters was in the dressing room and a man tried to go in there — I don’t care if he thinks he’s a woman and tries on clothes with them in there — I’d just try to stomp a mudhole in him and then stomp him dry.”
Supposedly he was upset by the firing of a Texas Macy’s female employee for refusing to allow a transgender woman use the dressing room, and that’s why he sponsored the bill. He further claims to do otherwise would “…put my family at risk.”
“RISK” OF WHAT?? HOGWASH, YOU IDIOT! First of all, the only thing ANY transgender person wants to do is GO ABOUT THEIR BUSINESS UNMOLESTED, be it a restroom, dressing room or ANYWHERE ELSE! It’s assholes (sorry folks, there’s NO other word I can think of that fits) like you, whose minds consist of gutter trash, who want to get in our busines, and consider other things…
And believe you me, mister, there are any number of transfolks who would love for you to “bring it on”, face to face, one on one and hand to hand…and we’re generally a non-confrontational community.
But before I have a complete meltdown, I will say this…
Public hate speech like this, advocating violence against members of the transgender community has NO business coming out of the mouth of an ELECTED official charged with the DUTY of legislating laws for ALL citizens! Richard Floyd should resign; he doesn’t deserve to be a part of governing civilized folk. This is every bit as heinous and unacceptable as if he would say the same thing about beating a black person for attempting to use a white restroom [in the ’50s].
Hate speech like this, voiced by a public official makes bashers feel their violence against transgender women and men are sanctioned by officials to the degree that they will suffer no repercussions; THIS HAS TO BE STOPPED if we’re ever to stop having names to read at “Transgender Day Of Rememberence”s…
