A federal judge has issued a preliminary injunction halting the implementation of a Tennessee law requiring businesses and government facilities in the state to post a sign informing the public if they will allow transgender people to use bathrooms matching their gender identity.

Judge Aleta A. Trauger for the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee said in her ruling that the plaintiffs were “likely to succeed on their challenge” to the law based on the argument that “the First Amendment typically does not permit such a mandate unless it is narrowly tailored to satisfy a compelling government purpose.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The ACLU filed the lawsuit two weeks ago on behalf of the owners of a performing arts and community center, a restaurant and other businesses in the state. The civil rights organization said that each of the businesses have “trans-inclusive restroom practices.”

In May, Gov. Bill Lee signed a law requiring public restrooms to display a sign that said, “This facility maintains a policy of allowing the use of restrooms by either biological sex, regardless of the designation on the restroom.”

The plaintiffs were worried that “the warning notice will make transgender and intersex people… feel that their presence is viewed as alarming, and that they will be offended by the term ‘biological sex’ because of the political controversy and anti-transgender animus surrounding that phrase.”

Trauger argued that the plaintiffs “have presented evidence that they have strived to be welcoming spaces for communities that include transgender individuals and that the signage required by the Act would disrupt the welcoming environments that they wish to provide.”

“Restaurants and performing spaces are businesses, but that is not all they are; they are also among the most important physical locations in which communities—so often consigned, in this era, to electronic space—can gather and grow together in a manner rooted in a particular neighborhood, in a particular city, in a particular state,” the judge added.

Nashville Scene tweeted Friday, “The preliminary injunction came down from U.S. District Judge Aleta Trauger Friday afternoon, two weeks after the the American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee filed a lawsuit challenging the law on behalf of two Tennessee business owners.”

ACKU tweeted, “BREAKING: A federal court has blocked Tennessee’s anti-trans restroom law from going into effect. Our clients, two Tennessee business owners with trans-inclusive restroom practices, challenged the law that would have forced them to post a government-prescribed warning sign.”

  1. Well I would not go into it because I would be uncomfortable with a man coming in the bathroom with me. What about our rights?

  2. I guess the normal people have no rights! I’m not comfortable having a man in the restroom when I’m there and especially if my granddaughters are in there! This whole world is going to shit in a hurry! What’s going to be done when a pervert decides he feels like he wants to identify as a woman today, then goes in an molest young girls? Disgusting!

  3. Sorry for the caps but… STOP BEING AFRAID OF OFFENDING/ CATERING TO A MINORITY!!! LESS THAN 1% OF THE POPULATION SHOULDN’T DICTATE THE LIVES OF EVERYONE ELSE!!!

  4. I don’t care who you are, what you think you are, if you have a joint between your legs you don’t go into a girl’s restroom or shower room period..

  5. Any restaurant that allows these gender confused freaks to use what ever bathroom they want, I would not patronize. Money talks! When normal heterosexual restaurant owners find their business either empty or or business is down because of their policies, they will see the light. Go woke, go broke.

  6. No woman or child in America is safe if these freaks are allowed to use women only restroom!
    Why does a handful of confused or mentally ill people get to have their way?
