The president of theocratic law group The Liberty Council announced on the social medium Twitter that she plans to carry a gun with her to the women’s restroom at Target stores so that she can shoot anyone she thinks is transgender.

Blogger Joe My God wrote on Monday, “Liberty Counsel president Anita Staver declared Friday that she will be taking her Glock .45 handgun to Target as protection against assaults by transgender patrons.”

How about if we ban idiots pickled in Jesus Juice with guns from lavs? That seems to be a better route to safety than picking on transgender people who simply want to pee in peace.

The Advocate also has this story:

Anti-LGBT activists are taking the newfound role of “potty police” to the next level, pledging to carry weapons into public restrooms to “protect” against trans people using the bathroom that matches their gender identity.


The same day that Staver posted her threat about carrying firearms into Target bathrooms, a Republican candidate for sheriff in Texas promised he would “beat the hell out of a transgender person who tried to piss in a bathroom where [his] daughter was peeing,” according to the Dallas Observer


“This isn’t an anti-transgender issue,” Murphree told the Dallas paper. “It’s a safety issue. I’m not afraid of transgenders. I’m afraid of who will take advantage of the rules to get close to kids. The rights of transgenders do not trump the rights of everyone else.”

Oh, you aren’t afraid. Right. Threatening to beat someone to death, yeah, no fear there.  Before transgender people’s rights could “trump” anyone, you fuckbrained asshole, they first have to have the same rights as everyone else.

“Yes, I will be the next sheriff, and I will serve all citizens,” Murphree reportedly wrote in response to the mother. “I will not sit back and not voice my beliefs and opinions. I will not give in to the political correctness police. I won’t be threatened by those who may call me a bigot or ignorant. I have no issue with transgenders. That’s between them and God.”

No issue with transgenders. I’m beginning to have an auto-enraged response to seeing this, with no people or person[s] attached. It’s othering and treating people like things. And Discworld fans know what Esme Weatherwax had to say about that. It’s the beginning of all evil, treating people like things.

    Staver and the candidate for sheriff are the kind of people that make life in the US much more unsafe for ALL of us. I am not in one of the directly endangered groups of people, but I still feel threatened by these actions. I only hope the pendulum has swung as far as it will before reason and sanity take control again.

    For some reason, when I first saw this, I read it as,
    “shoot anyone who thinks she is transgender”.
    This makes more sense.

    It’s a safety issue.

    Why yes, bringing guns into bathrooms does strike me as awfully unsafe.

    Man, it’s almost like conservative rhetoric requires a boogeyman in order to justify austerity and coercion so they go out of their way to literally invent threats to be scared about.

    Dear lady, you are one dangerous nutter. I hope you never get to fulfill your promise, you nasty piece of work.

    What’s terrifying is that these…people are going on what they “think” is a transgender person. How in the fuckety fuck would they know? A whole lot of people don’t obviously fit the binary. A whole lot of people aren’t all kinds of pretty (I’m not, so one of these fuckfaces could decide I’m a trans*person, and shoot), which leaves their criteria for judgment up to their “gut”. Scary as hell that, especially given they have no brains to speak of.

    She’ll also be shooting those trans men who will be required to pee in the Ladies Room.

    The ones who have heard of the word “evidence” and correctly understand its meaning, if only at a 14th Century BCE level (which is astonishingly advanced, They are usually at around a million years before Flintstones level), will check first with a Trans-Cootie-Bogey Meter. And then shoot. What the Trans-Cootie-Bogey Meter actually indicates, or for that matter measures, is neither relevant nor possible, since They forgot to put the batteries in. This is despite the instructions being in bright colours, large letters, one-syllable words, and on a sticker plastered over the screen. Most don’t even bother to remove the sticker. Remarkably few even take it out of the box.

    Trans-Cootie-Bogey Meter! The finest in unused mythical proof. Batteries not included. Operated only by nutters. Use cannot harm your non-existent sanity. No vibrations or quantum needed.

    If anything highlights the utter idiocy of these laws, this does. Don’t want men in the women’s lav? Don’t make it a fucking law they must be in there.

    hopefully she will shoot one on those straight cis-male guys who are planning on storming target women’s restrooms to prove some kind of point.
