What's 'shocking' now could become commonplace

W.W. Bridal Boutique (Penn.)A pro-family attorney says a shocking experience at a bridal shop could become the norm if the Equality Act becomes law.

The Equality Act (HR 5) is considered by many conservative, faith-based, and pro-family organizations to be a dangerous attack on religious freedom and free speech (Example 1) (Example 2). And some have pointed out the legislation is "deceptively" named, arguing it has nothing to do with equality but everything to do with quashing religious liberty.

"This [situation] involves a young lady, Ann*, who is getting married in May," says Mat Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel. "She was shopping for a bridal dress with her mother and sister and she's been saving herself for her husband."

According to Staver, the store employee helping "Ann" in and out of dresses in the dressing room turned out to be a man dressed as a woman.

"This young woman felt completely violated and deceived by the bridal store," says Staver. "This day was [supposed to be] a day of celebration and joy – and it turned into a disaster. And it should never have happened."

When the young woman's fiancé contacted the manager, he was told that the employee has the right to present as a woman because he identifies as a female. The young bride-to-be contacted Liberty Counsel after the incident.

"This is the absurdity that will happen across the country – and this is just the tip of the iceberg," warns Staver. "Women deserve their privacy, they deserve their safety. They don't deserve to be violated. And this will not only affect women's privacy and security and safety, but it will also decimate women's gains in every area, including sports."

 

* To protect her privacy, the young woman's real name isn't used.
