LGBT Protestors Trying to Derail Just Want Privacy Campaign in Final Day


The Just Want Privacy campaign has until tomorrow to finish gathering 246,000 signatures to put Washington’s Open-Locker Room rule repeal on the ballot in November, and their opponents are making it as tough as possible to get the job done.

The campaign opposing Initiative 1515, Washington Won’t Discriminate, has set up a Facebook group to track signature gatherers from the opposing side.  Many worry that this tracking effort was started to equip LGBT activists to intimidate, bully, and harass those gathering signatures before tomorrow’s deadline.

This morning, Allyship trans-advocates ambushed FPIW’s offices with a protest, standing in front of the entrance to the offices for more than an hour.

More than eight members of the media were present to document this three-person protest for tonight’s news coverage.  This is the same media that somehow couldn’t find the time or interest to show up for the Just Want Privacy event and press conference last month.

    Putting aside personal gender beliefs, there is a very serious issue going on here. Every person in the state of Washington has the right to feel safe in bathrooms, locker rooms and changing rooms. Whose responsibility is it to teach anatomy to children? The parents? The government? Should 11 year old children be exposed to the opposite anatomy of others in the school locker rooms? Parents have the right to opt out their children from Human Growth and Development teaching based upon their family beliefs. So how do we opt out of the new bathroom and changing room rule in schools? Have you seen a 5th grade middle school locker room? This funnels right down to the elementary level school bathrooms. Is it appropriate for a 3rd grader to expose his or her anatomy to the other? Is that not supposed to be a parent decision? Last I checked parents are allowed to be the responsible decision makers for their family values and beliefs. Or Should I ask why women and girls are being discriminated against in opening up the women and girls bathrooms, locker rooms and changing rooms to those who may not have appropriate intentions.

    Joseph Backholm (the sponsor of I-1515) is the same guy who sponsored the failed campaign against marriage equality in Washington four years ago. He has also said that trans people are “living a lie” and that they’re nothing more than “biological men who claim to be women” (and vice versa). It seems that Joseph has an obsession with running campaigns that seek to make life worse for gender and sexual minorities — while pretending that those campaigns are about something else entirely, of course. “It’s about the children, not gay people!” Or, “it’s about bathroom safety, not trans people!”

    Nonsense on both counts.

    Needless to say, anyone who thinks this initiative was really about “bathroom safety” didn’t do any research on the guy who was behind it. Indeed, it would appear that Joseph Backholm is constantly seeking socially acceptable channels by which to express his personal aversion to LGBTQ people. To that end, we can certainly expect to hear from him again.

      Coming from the expert in nonsense. Amigo, you are truly lost in the Biblical sense. Thus your comments are to be completely and utterly disregarded. Like listening to a blind person giving directions.
