Baltimore County lies along the northern Maryland border with Pennsylvania. At one time, the city of Baltimore was part of the county, but they voted to make themselves an independent city in 1851, so they are no longer part of the county that mostly surrounds them. In 2010, the US Census indicated that Baltimore County has a population of 805,000.
The county serves as the national headquarters for the Social Security Administration, and Black & Decker. Other major employers in the county include Bethlehem Steel and the Glenn L Martin Company.
The governing body of Baltimore County is made up of a County Executive who sits over a County Council which is made up of seven council members. They are elected in conjunction with gubernatorial elections.
Four of the seven council members have introduced Bill 3-12 which is supposed to prevent any form of discrimination against anyone on the grounds of sexual identity, orientation or expression. According to the bill,
“Gender identity or expression means a gender-related identity or appearance of an individual regardless of the individual’s assigned sex at birth.”
The City of Baltimore has adopted a similar bill, but theirs contained exemptions covering toilet facility settings, educational and religious institutions. The county bill has no such exemptions.
Another county in Maryland, Montgomery County, has already adopted a bill very similar to the one being proposed in Baltimore County. Some referred to their bill as the ‘coed shower plan.’ Since Montgomery County passed their bill, they have seen an increase of rapes and sexual assaults within the county, many of which have taken place in public facilities including the Montgomery Community College, a nursing home, restaurant and hotel.
A number of county residents are not happy about the bill and the possible ramifications it could have. Maryland Citizens for a Responsible Government (MCRG) president Ruth Jacobs, described the bill as a form of gender identity theft when she said,
“Many people believe that transgender people have had surgery to change their sex, but in most cases they haven’t. I call them a fake female.”
The MCRG website describes the bill as,
“This dangerous Peeping Tom bill will allow cross-dressing men to enter women’s bathrooms and dressing rooms even if they are sexually attracted to women.”
As I’ve said before, gay rights activists, and I include transgender, cross-dressers and other sexual perverts in this category, don’t want equal rights, they demand preferred rights. They want to have special status and protection that normal people don’t have because they are tired of being persecuted for their sinful and amoral lifestyles.
As a straight, happily married Christian male, I am getting sick and tired of being the victim to their preferred treatment and protection. And as for rights, the only real right any of us have is the right to go to Hell because of our sins, and that includes EVERYONE.
