rob anders bathrooms

MP Rob Anders is currently objecting to Bill C279, that would enshrine the same rights for trans people that everyone else (in theory) already is entitled to. He claims that "the bill's goal is to give transgendered men access to women's washrooms. Contrary to Anders' feeble attempts to narrow the discussion, bill C279 is about much more than "bathroom privileges." Moreover, using that kind of transphobic, intentionally myopic language reduces people to body parts. C279 is about filling the gaps in legislation that was designed in intent to prevent discrimination, but currently remains dangerously incomplete.
