Last night, the Georgia House Judiciary subcommittee tabled “a bill that would provide workplace protections to all state employees, including gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender workers,” GA Voice reports. During the hearing, Tanya Ditty, state director for Concerned Women for America, warned lawmakers that the measure would protect 23 different sexual orientations and even allow pedophiles to teach in the schools. She argued that male cross dressers would be allowed to use women’s restrooms and “exploit the vulnerability of women and children”:

DITTY: There are 23 sexual orientations that fit under this definition and if this bill became law, then what we would be protecting for public employees is not only heterosexuality, bisexuality, pedophilia, transsexuality, transvestitism, I’m not going to read them all. Voyeurism, exhibitionism, feetism, zoophilia, necrophilia, klismaphilia and the list goes on. I teach in the public school system and I wonder if this would impact the public school system. And we have parents who bring their kids to school everyday and expect the school to protect them. And what’s going to protect our children if someone that is a pedophiliac comes in and gets a teaching job, is a bus driver, is a custodian, and they can be people that just want to prey on people and they will be protected with this law.

Watch it:

Jeff Graham, executive director of Georgia Equality, said the measure is still “very much alive,” but faces “a huge challenge to get it through this year.” Twenty-one states and the District of Columbia prohibit employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, “covering 44 percent of the United States population.” Sixteen states or 33 percent of the population is covered by a statewide law prohibiting discrimination based on gender identity.”
