Kamala Harris stated on Twitter that it is time to advance the Equality Act. The proposal would strengthen safeguards for LGBTQ+ people across the country. State measures that target transgender Americans and their families, according to Harris, are unconstitutional. It is not a prank. Kamala Harris believes that now is the moment to start pressing LGBTQ concerns.
According to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), a group that advocates for equal rights for LGBTQ+ people, the Equality Act will destroy women’s rights by codifying allowing men to play women’s sports and potentially target free speech by classifying “misgendering” someone as discrimination.
“What a pleasure to be able to focus on pronouns at a time like this,” former Miss Nevada Lisa Song Sutton said on Twitter. “America: inflation is hurting us, our border is lawless and there’s a land war in Europe,” Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) tweeted. “They need to get guys in women’s sports as soon as possible,” said the former Miss Nevada.
“The Biden presidency is living in the Twilight Zone,” tweeted international policy specialist and former Margaret Thatcher advisor Nile Gardiner. “Even while the globe burns and a nuclear holocaust looms, Democrats believe LGBTQ concerns are more important than everything else,” he wrote. “Meanwhile, Ukraine is on fire, and Putin’s army is wreaking havoc across Europe,” he continued.
Therefore Joe Biden will take over a country hurting from the COVID-19 epidemic, as well as the consequences of an executive branch that has spent the last several years sowing turmoil through federal rules, legal memorandums and lawsuits to diminish civil rights protections for LGBTQ people. The Biden administration must work quickly and decisively to unravel and destroy the Trump administration’s abuses and deliberately and proactively advance the rights and well-being of LGBTQ Americans.
