Anti-transgender 'bathroom bills' keep no one safe except the politicians pushing them

Has the indispensable video journalist Matt Baume been reading my blog? Probably so, but I doubt as much as I would like for me to take credit for this wonderful video he just completed.  Baume proves that politicians pushing "bathroom bills" do so because they are more concerned about their re-election chances than protecting the public. Then he compares the rhetoric used to justify these bills to the rhetoric used to justify banning marriage equality. In doing this, Baume proves a point I've made repeatedly - that the religious right and their allies exploit people's fear about children in danger to hinder lgbt equality. Outstanding!
