  1. Yes, I sent this to the Chairs:

    Support HB 4054


    You must support this legislation. We are sick and tired of our children being purposely exposed to dangerous and unfair situations because a few people may be confused about their gender, or are they just feigning their confusion to take advantage of the situation to the determent of innocent, defenseless females? Stop the madness, support HB 4054.

    Not to mention Oregon is the laughing stalk of the country because of policies like these.

  2. Not only should biological males NOT be allowed to compete in girls/women’s sports, they should NOT be allowed into their private spaces like bathrooms and locker rooms. PERIOD!
