Canada: Transgender 'Bathroom bill' heads to third reading
On Dec. 8, the House of Commons approved C-389 at the report stage by a vote of 143-131. C-389 is Bill Siksay's (NDP, Burnaby-Douglas) private member's bill that would enshrine "gender identity" and "gender expression" in the Canada Human Rights Act and hate crime provisions of the Criminal Code, thereby providing special legal rights to people who self-identify as transgender and transsexual. Pro-family groups have dubbed C-389 "the Bathroom Bill," because homosexualist groups have advocated the amendments to hate and human rights laws saying they are necessary so that men who say they are women can use women's washroom without repercussions.

Texas Cop Gets One Year In Jail For Raping Two Transwomen
The news out of Texas is if a man rapes a ‘tranny’, he gets a slap on the wrist while his victim gets a life time of pain and suffering. Craig Nash received a year in jail on a misdemeanor charge of “official oppression” despite the fact that he arrested a transsexual prostitute in San Antonio, handcuffed her, drove to a hidden location, and forced her to perform several sex acts while he was on duty. Her story was confirmed by a rape kit that showed that Nash had raped her, and the GPS device in his patrol car showed that he had driven to that location. What is more, another victim had come forward to tell that she, too, had been raped by Nash.
