“San Antonio Ordinance to Allow Men into Women’s Restrooms,” says an Aug. 15 email from Texas Values, an Austin-based advocacy group that says it seeks to support “family values.”
The email and an Aug. 13 post on the group’s blog mentioned a new California law giving public school students access to either gender’s sports teams, locker rooms and bathrooms. The blog entry said the San Antonio City Council would soon consider a “similar policy” that “makes it illegal to deny ‘facilities’ because of a person’s ‘gender identity.’ These facilities are commonly understood to include bathrooms, locker rooms, and other changing facilities.”
