So, for those who are unaware, TN representative stated (twice) his personal decision to commit assault on a trans woman should she ever use the same dressing room as his wife or daughters or granddaughters.
FLOYD: I believe if I was standing at a dressing room and my wife or one of my daughters was in the dressing room and a man tried to go in there — I don’t care if he thinks he’s a woman and tries on clothes with them in there — I’d just try to stomp a mudhole in him and then stomp him dry.
Don’t ask me to adjust to their perverted way of thinking and put my family at risk. We cannot continue to let these people dominate how society acts and reacts. Now if somebody thinks he’s a woman and he’s a man and wants to try on women’s clothes, let him take them into the men’s bathroom or dressing room.
In case the above wasn’t clear enough, he said it again on the news.
Now, that’s pretty clear to me. Direct, honest, forthright.
Also scared out of his mind, but hey, there it is.
Well, as ya’ll know, I love a good challenge.
So, to Mr. Floyd, and I use the honorific there with extreme sarcasm, I say bring it.
But, since he is a liar and a coward, I know he won’t.
The picture that accompanies this website there on the right was taken in May of 08 or 09. I’ve forgotten which. I am willing to test his ability to write checks his body can’t cash, and allow him the opportunity to attempt to stomp a mudhole in this one little girl.
Honestly, in part because I will sue his ass into the earth after he tries, but also because people like that really have no fucking clue about who they is fucking with.
You see, he is a liar because he *won’t* do that. He talks a good game, but he’s a lying sack of shit who can’t do what he says he will do because he really will get his ass handed to him and I’m pretty sure he knows it.
He’s also a coward, because he knows that he can say that, and never have to actually follow through.
So, here’s the thing.
I need help. I need to know where his wife and daughters and granddaughters shop. I need to know when they do it, where they do it, and all the rest, and then I need help flying out to TN so that I can in place to use a dressing room.
Now, this might sound odd, but let’s look at a few things, shall we.
I am notoriously “out”. I am vocal, and while I seriously lack the physical capabilities I once had and have at best a tenth of this over the hill ancient dickweed’s testosterone, I can not only take him, but I can take anything he dishes out and not have to take him.
The only birth certificate one can pull up on record for me, is my AZ birth cert which although names are partially obscured, meets the requirements of his pet little attempt at becoming the latest in a long line of laughingstocks.
I am consistently informed that I have this idiocy called “passing privilege”. Privilege it is, mind you — the idiocy is in calling it “passing”.
So I am pretty much of the opinion that not only would he have to face his own preconceptions in dealing with me, but that he’d also have to do so in a public, career ending manner that would involve him having to either beat up a girl or be a chickenshit.
Insert the sound of hens clucking here for what the end result would be.
Indeed, I’m even willing to do this in his offices, anywhere he frequents (even the most horribly macho old fart club), and so forth.
Because *everyone* with half a brain knows he’s simply trying to scare trans people.
And folks who know me know that I really get irked when people do that.
SO yes, Mr. Floyd, let’s do this. People who know me know that I’m going to back down — give me the opportunity, and I will do exactly this:
Show up at a store where your wife, daughters, or granddaughters are, and use the dressing rooms at the same time they do — as well as the restrooms.
All by my little lonesome Army veteran self.
You, of course, will have to show up with something significantly more threatening than your own fat assed, ignorant, cowardly little wussy self.
Come on, folks. This guy is a public person, and trans people are enormously creative, gifted, and capable in ways that most of us aren’t even aware of.
Odd thing is, this law is totally the perfect test of the fight against the bathroom bill — it’s active instead of passive, and that’s the mistake he’s made that the wiser and more educated heads that merely spout off *against* bills (passive fighting) understand.
We need more people like him to really and truly go after us.
It turns the tide in the fight.
So yes, Mr Floyd, bring it. Let’s do this.
