Mayor Annise Parker just will not take no for an answer.
Even after a whopping 61% of the voters in the liberal city of Houston said “NO” to allowing men to use women’s restrooms, Annise Parker vowed to find another way to force women to allow men in their restrooms and locker-rooms.
She has also vowed to fight back against “hate speech” in pulpits which is what she blames for the defeat of the HERO ordinance.
Mayor Annise Parker’s insane civil rights proposition, designed to hide an ordinance allowing boys in girls bathrooms, went down in flames at the ballot box last Tuesday.
Mayor Annise Parker had tried every trick in the book to get her ordinance allowing males to use female restrooms, locker rooms and showers, but her opposition was relentless.
Then later in the week, she proceeded to call that 61%, ‘Transphobes” on Twitter.
That is right! Because you believe that #WomensRightsMatter, you too are a Transphobe!

Annise Parker was quick to respond:
No, actually I called you transphobes, but if the shoe fits…-A https://t.co/UwCnDZhu2H

The responses were terrific, but Socrates famous slander quote said it all!
You would think that this would be common sense.
There are PLENTY of unisex bathrooms all over the country. Not good enough folks. Gotta let men in the women’s restrooms, defying the rights of women all over the country.
ACTUALLY, men that live their lives dressed as women have been using women’s restrooms for a long time. Mayor Annise Parker has done more damage to the ‘Trans” community than any “Transphobe” could have ever done.
One FB commenter on an article in the periodical, The Advocate, stated: “I AM a non-op person. Perhaps I am out of touch with the community then. I apologize. I have used women’s restrooms and locker rooms for years.”
Now Annise Parker has stirred up a hornet’s nest. I would imagine that now that she has made this big stink, the Trans community will be the ones to suffer.
It began as a city government passed bathroom ordinance hidden in larger legislation.
In May of 2014 after significant controversy and re-arranging of language, Mayor Parker passed her bathroom provision in a nondiscrimination ordinance designed to hide it from Houston voters.
But the Texas Supreme Court told Annise Parker in no uncertain terms to either repeal her or put it on the ballot for the people to decide.
“The legislative power reserved to the people of Houston is not being honored!”
“If the city council does not repeal the ordinance by August 24, 2015, then by that date the city council must order that the ordinance be put to popular vote during the November 2015 election.”
The court then suspended any enforcement of the ordinance.
Also involved in the 2014 insanity was Mayor Annise Parker’s deciding that she would subpoena sermons from local preachers to discourage them from discussing the issue.
After a huge backlash that went national, Annise Parker was forced to withdraw the subpoenas. People from around the country mailed over 1000 Bibles to her office.
So Annise Parker and Co. wrote Prop 1. They hid the bathroom part in a general civil rights Proposition… to con the Houston voters.
They knew if they put a proposition to allow a man to go in a girls bathroom on the ballot they would get laughed out of the state.
They instead hid the Mayor’s previous ordinance within a larger generic and repetitive ordinance for the rights of women, racial minorities, the disabled, elderly and military personnel.
Those opposed to the Proposition were labeled racists and bigots, (and now Transphobes), because they did not think it is common sense to allow any male in a female bathroom and visa versa.
“When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser. #JustSayin’
Campaign for Houston, led by Dr. Steven Hotze fought the ordinance in a number of formats and this Texas Supreme Court ordered vote by the citizens of Houston has spoken volumes.
Our own Joe Wurzelbacher and #TeamJoe, along with Liberty Alliance teamed up with Dr. Hotze to make sure all Houstonians understood what was under the deception, reaching far and wide to make sure the story was told.
But the people of Houston were not fooled. They discovered that Mayor Annise Parker’s new Prop 1 was a hoax. Now it’s a lifeless hoax!
The most recent TV spot released by the anti-Prop. 1 coalition Campaign for Houston, for example, showed a man entering a bathroom stall with a young girl.
“Any man, at any time, could enter a woman’s bathroom simply by claiming to be a woman that day.” the narrator warned.
