"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."

-- Tennessee state representative. Richard Floyd, R-Chattanooga, who has introduced a bill that would require transgender people to use the bathrooms and changing rooms of their birth gender. The bill would charge violators with a misdemeanor punishable with a $50 fine. The Tennessee Equality Project has dubbed the proposed legislation, the "Police the Potty Bill."
