Senate sends the bill to the house tomorrow then the house will vote. If it passes the house, it will go to the governor for signature.

SA can say goodbye to the Final Four if it passes.

And the governor will sign away Texas' future potential.

My daughter asked me a question that really got me thinking last night. She said:

"Daddy, how much money would it take for you to allow grown men dressed in girl clothes to go into the bathroom with me?"

I'm conflicted. She's my baby girl, but the Final Four and the NBA All-Star Game bring in a lot of revenue.

Decisions, decisions....

This argument is ridiculous. First, why would allow your little child to go in a public restroom alone? Secondly, if you see someone acting inappropriately in a public restroom, gather your children and leave. If a child gets molested in a public restroom, I feel that the parents were not doing their jobs.

This won't pass. Doesn't it affect the NFL too? Jerry Jones will kill the bill!

Why would someone do their job and be a responsible parent when they can just blame transgender people?

Actually, it won't affect the NFL if they're willing to put their money where their mouth is. All they have to do is have unisex bathrooms installed in their stadiums. Problem solved.

What's that? Oh - they want SOMEONE ELSE to pay for their "equality"? Ah......

Having actually worked with booking conventions before, I can tell you that there's typically a limited pool of eligible venues availble for a variety of reasons for each group. And when it comes right down to it, I'm gonna say it - and y'all can have vapors over it if you so desire.

If some guy thinks he can waltz into the girls' room when my wife, daughter or granddaughter are in there, he's going to need to adjust his thinking. Yes - I'm quite aware that CD's have been doing it discreetly for years - and no, I'm not worried about them. It the voyeurs what WOULD take advantage of such a law that concern me - and I'm not afraid to admit it. Nor would I be bashful about barring their entry while mine are in there, or having mine immediately leave. You can take your social experiment and place it where the sun don't shine.

Ride em HighRedNeck- 100% right on = i also thought those here dont want the feds telling them how texas should live and they constantly complain about Fed telling them to this or that - now that our own elected officials - who they elected - yes elections matter - pass a law they dont like - they complain again - progressives have no moral compass to stand on - they pick and choose what side they want to be on based on the wind without any foundation based either on faith -love of country - etc

I am so amused reading there crazy and outrageous responses without any consistenticy what so ever - when the local elected officals do something they dont like they cry - when the state does something they dont like they cry - when the feds do something they dont like they cry -

just like pelosi now she insists that we read the new heath care act ------ dont we all remember her famous line - we have to pass it to find out whats in it? progressives - liberals - left winger are all the same - keep smiling - this is fun
