(NaturalNews) By a margin of 2-to-1 against, voters in Houston recently rejected one of the most idiotic and unnecessary ballot measures that would have turned sexual identity on its head, which is what the city's lesbian extremist mayor really wants.

As reported by the Houston Chronicle, the "Houston Equal Rights Ordinance" (HERO), an intentionally misnamed ballot measure (since "equal rights" already exist in Houston and the rest of the country, via the Constitution and subsequent statutory law), was so controversial it drew in comment and observations from the always-activist Obama White House.

While the paper said the ordinance would have "broadly" extended "non-discrimination" measures, what wasn't said was what HERO actually would have done had it passed – allow men and women to "identify" as the opposite gender to use bathrooms of the opposite sex throughout the city, among other things.

In the age of Caitlyn Jenner, where nothing is as it seems and traditional American culture and values are steadily being eroded, men can now have male chromosomes and "plumbing," but in their hearts, "self-identify" as the opposite sex.

Lunacy in Houston

"In a battle that has ranged from bathroom etiquette to gender rights to constitutional debates over religious freedom, a key skirmish broke out after former Houston Astros baseball all-star Lance Berkman appeared in an ad saying that the Nov. 3 ballot measure would 'allow troubled men who claim to be women to enter women's bathrooms, showers and locker rooms,'" The Washington Times reported.

Supporters of the measure vowed to press on, despite the fact that it was roundly – and overwhelmingly – rejected, as though the viewpoint of a majority of Houston residents is meaningless.

"We are disappointed with today's outcome, but our work to secure nondiscrimination protections for all hard-working Houstonians will continue," supporters said in a statement released after the votes were counted, according to the Chronicle. "No one should have to live with the specter of discrimination hanging over them. Everyone should have the freedom to work hard, earn a decent living and provide for themselves and their families."

The paper noted that the ordinance would have "prohibited" discrimination based on 13 classes of people already protected under federal statutes: sex, race, color, ethnicity, national origin, age, religion, disability, pregnancy and genetic information, as well as family, marital or military status.

So really, then, what was the point? Oh, well, HERO added these two classes: gender identity and sexual orientation. In other words, two manufactured "classes" of people that the extremist mayor, Annise Parker, wants to be able to use any restroom they choose.

This is what lunacy really looks like, mainstreamed.

The Texas Tribune added that Parker and her faction are now trying to find a way to implement what the vast majority of Houston residents just rejected.

'I don't care what voters said, I want it and that's the end of it'

"I'm going to sit down with the council members and see how they want to proceed," Parker told the Chronicle. "We will also, of course, evaluate what the national and international response from the business community is, because that certainly will make a difference."

That's another aspect of this push. Parker and her fellow loons on the Houston city council think that somehow their "international city" will suffer financially if they don't pass the ordinance, or something like it – as if the international community should have more of a say about what happens in an American city than the U.S. citizens who live there.

Sanity is pushing back against Parker and her extremism. Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick warned her against reintroducing the measure during her last months in office.

Speaking to reporters in Lubbock as he attended the Texas Federation of Republican Women Conference, Patrick said, "You can't find any women who want men in the bathroom beside Annise Parker and a few people who voted for her ... I think Annise Parker needs to realize she's going to be out of office in a few months, and she ought to take her bad ideas to wherever she's going after she leaves office."

The Tribune also noted that some restaurants in Houston are making their bathrooms unisex anyway – which is their right, if that's what the individual business owners want to do.

Hopefully, though, they have accounted for the resultant loss of business they're likely to experience.
