No special legislative session for bathroom discrimination!

Dear Speaker Ramsey and Speaker Harwell:

We oppose a special legislative session to consider an anti-transgender bathroom discrimination law.  It is never justified to spend the state's time and money to advance discrimination.  Thank you for considering our views.

    This is a pathetically stupid idea. Stop wasting my tax money in ways that make Tennessee the laughingstock of the world.

    It’s ridiculous that our legislators are fixating on something so unnecessary and, ultimately, uninforcable instead of doing real good for our state and making positive changes for our future.

    What a waste if they call a special session. They should call a session on health care, if anything. The idea of calling a special session on bathroom discrimination is a prime example of a solution looking for a problem. Shame on them.

    This legislative session has been a disgrace to the state as a whole: it’s time to take a step back and quit costing the taxpayers money for discrimination!
