Voters in Houston absolutely crushed what has become known as the “bathroom ordinance,” a measure allegedly designed to be an “Equal Rights Ordinance.” The measure was strongly pushed by Annise Parker, the city’s lesbian mayor we once dubbed the “Liberal Nazi of the Day” for demanding pastors hand over sermons dealing with homosexuality, gender issues and, yes, even her.
Naturally, the defeat hit Parker a lot worse than anyone else in the city:

Something she probably knows a lot about.
MAYOR PARKER on defeat: “I feared that this would have stained Houston’s reputation as a tolerant city.”

So not having restrooms open to all 57 genders at the same time somehow makes a city intolerant? How does that work, exactly?
Naturally, anyone opposed to the measure was the victim of “fear.” Check out this Texas Tribune headline:

One person wondered:
Hey Houston voters – please show us ONE example of a man in a woman’s bathroom in a place with an equal rights ordinance, just one.

Check out these returns:
No doubt Parker will find a judge to say the voters violated something in the Commerce Clause of the Constitution… Or maybe she can just subpoena the entire city to find out what people think.
At any rate, the people of Houston have spoken. Kudos to all those who voted and especially to those who handed Parker and the social justice warriors a well-deserved defeat.
