A Matter of Bigoted Priorities
State Rep. Paul Scott, (R-Grand Blanc) recently announced his candidacy for the GOP nomination for Michigan's Secretary of State and released a list of his top four priorities.
I will make it a priority to ensure transgender individuals will not be allowed to change the sex on their driver’s license in any circumstance
Of all the things a Secretary of State hopeful could focus on, instituting bigotry is what Scott decided ranked among his most important priorities? Amazingly, yes:
In an interview with Michigan Messenger, Scott said the issue was about “values.”
“It’s a social values issue. If you are born a male, you should be known as a male. Same as with a female, she should be known as a female,” he said.
When asked to explain how such a mandate from the Secretary of State would benefit Michigan, he said it was about “preventing people who are males genetically from dressing as a woman and going into female bathrooms.”
While Scott is aware that federal courts have ruled that gender dysphoria, the medical diagnosis for transgender persons, was a disability, he said he did not think he would run afoul of discrimination laws. For the 27-year-old state representative, the issue is about biological gender.
He said his mandate would be in place even for those who had completely undergone sex reassignment surgeries.
“That’s who you are. You can have cosmetic surgery or reassignment surgery but you are still that gender,” he said.
