Wisconsin lawmaker, Rep. Jesse Kremer (pronounced "creamer"), has announced plans to reintroduce and expand a bill requiring students to use the bathroom that corresponds with their biological gender. This time though Kremer has stated that he now would like the bill to apply to rooms where people are in "states of undress" and to all public buildings in Wisconsin.
Kremer originally introduced the bill last November, but it died in committee after many people, including students, argued the proposal is discriminatory.
"There have been individuals in society for hundreds of years that believe they are a different gender. That's not the problem here. The problem is that there are going to be people that are going to take advantage of the situation."
Kremer said he'll push the measure despite the U.S. Department of Justice saying a similar North Carolina law would violate civil rights.
The brave Kremer (again it is really pronounced "creamer") proclaimed...
"The more states that stand up to the federal government the harder it is for them to push us and bully us. That's all they're doing is they're bullying us. This is not discrimination at all."
The unbending Kremer said he believes the bill has a better chance because of the attention it's gotten in North Carolina which I guess no one has pointed out to him would be, according to the DOJ, IN VIOLATION OF CIVIL RIGHTS!
Larry Dupuis, legal director of the ACLU of Wisconsin said in a statement that Kremer's proposed measure is discriminatory...
"This proposed law, like the hundreds we’ve seen introduced in legislatures across the country, many of which the ACLU is challenging, will do nothing to protect privacy or public safety, but will unfortunately harm Wisconsin residents and others who come here -- solely based on who they are,"
