Isn't violence against anyone already illegal?

Why is this bill even necessary?

[–]username2136[S] 16 points17 points  (3 children) | Copy

I read rumors that it seems like an update to an already existing act that will allow trans women into women’s abuse shelters. The rumor also stated that that was the reason the Republican Party was against it. They are worried that a predator could pose as trans and would have his way with the women and the staff couldn’t do shit because the dude said he was trans.

From my political standpoint, That sounds completely valid.

[–]Terminal-Psychosis7 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

From an everyday, common sense standpoint too.

[–]username2136[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I agree too but that was just a rumor. I have no idea whether that is true.

Because this is American politics, I shall be nonaligned in the subject, but I have included a link to the united states bill of those who wish to know more on the subject.

Women don't need them men need them because men aren't allowed in almost every single one and the ones they are allowed in are trying to bully them away from the shelters

Not have the support they need for domestic abuse?

So they will be like men?

[–]TraditionalCoffee4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

Anyone facing domestic abuse deserves help. Not just a specific type of person or gender.

[–]ulgulanoth4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

True millions of domestic abuse survivors will not have the support they need, but that is because they're men! Women already have a thousand different support groups, programs and safety nets in place.

It’s a way to sneak in privileges for TIMs in women’s spaces, especially by allowing them to enter women’s domestic violence shelters. This is why conservative politicians are voting against it.

[–]username2136[S] 5 points6 points  (5 children) | Copy

TIMs?

[–]ANIKAHirsch4 points5 points  (4 children) | Copy

Trans-identified males. They usually call themselves “trans women”.

[–]username2136[S] 2 points3 points  (3 children) | Copy

This just sounds like an update to a pre-existing law that was decades ago then if it didn’t include TIMs. Yeah I can definitely see why they would be against that. They have no authentication for whether someone is trans or not so any dude can just walk in there saying he is trans.

[–]ANIKAHirsch2 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy

It is. It was originally passed in the 90s. Ironically, the new version these “feminists” are pushing for would decrease the funding set aside for female victims.

[–]username2136[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Decrease? Why would they want that?

[–]ANIKAHirsch0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

It opens funding previously reserved for women to men who identify as women. I can’t explain why any woman would want that without using the phrase “useful idiots”. But it’s possible that they are misinformed about the nature of the bill.

[–]Stankyboi950 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

If the senate didn’t approve it, it probably not good

[–]username2136[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Good. I don’t remember too much of how our government works but at least that is a good sign of it not becoming reality.
