Lesbian feminist Julia Beck Slams the Equality Act: ‘H.R. 5 Is a Human Rights Violation’

At a hearing today before the US House Judiciary Committee on H.R. 5, the Equality Act, lesbian feminist, Julia Beck, said that the gender identity provisions of the bill are a violation of women’s human rights.

“If the act passes in its current form as H.R. 5, then every right that women have fought for will cease to exist,” Beck warned. “H.R. 5 is a human rights violation. Every single person in this country will lose their right to single-sex sports, shelters, grants, and loans. The law will forbid ever distinguishing between women and men.”
