Governor Haslam, we call on you to veto SB1912/HB2248 and protect the University of Tennessee-Knoxville's Office for Diversity and Inclusion. The office plays a vital role in making the university competitive for the best students, faculty, and staff and it makes campus life welcoming for all. Thank you for considering our views.
Diane Kerley Long signed Governor Haslam, Keep listening and oppose HB2414 2016-04-17 21:19:15 -0500Please, Governor Haslam, think long before signing this unconstitutional and impractical nonsense. It’s a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist. There have been no reports of attacks by transgenders anywhere, especially in bathrooms.
How would this be enforced? Where would a transgender man go to use the bathroom? If he goes to the men’s, he’d be arrested. If he goes to the women’s, looking like a man, it’s awkward for everyone, and he could be attacked.
Governor Haslam, Keep listening and oppose HB2414
