Tennessee Rep. Richard Floyd is an Asshole
[tw for trans-misogyny]
As the title says, Rep. Richard Floyd (R-Chattanooga) is an asshole. Not only did he create the transphobic TN House bill HB2279, but he also had this to say about the potential of trans women using, you know, women’s dressing rooms:
“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.”
Threatening assault on trans women for merely existing as the gender they are. And as a public figure, no less. What a shining star of a human being!
If you want to e-mail him and give him a piece of your mind, go for it:
