A reader’s letter implies that men and/or women simply dress up in clothes of the opposite gender and go to restrooms of the opposite sex to see or inappropriately touch unsuspecting people (July 21).
He seems to imply it’s all a scam, as simple as that.
He obviously has no knowledge about what it’s like to be transgender. They are not just parading around playing “dress up” trying to see what they can get away with in public bathrooms. This is their life, and not such an easy one.
They go through lots and lots including counseling before the process is complete. They have done nothing to warrant being humiliated and enduring the discrimination proposed by “bathroom bills.”
I hope the reader does some investigation and publicly endorses care and concern for these people.
Barbara Johnson, Hurst
The “bathroom bill” soon to be considered by the Texas House is nothing short of loathsome because it is simply wrong.
I frequently hear opposition to the bill because of possible economic repercussions. Although I agree with this reasoning, it is not my primary concern. Mine has more to do with the hurt and pain the passing of this bill is bound to incur on transgender people, particularly younger ones.
To purposely inflict this unnecessary damage on innocent people is beyond the realm of decency and degrades society. It is a mean endeavor supported by those who blindly possess an abundance of ignorance regarding human sexuality.
I sincerely hope that intelligent members of the House will not allow themselves to be bullied by the political powers-that-be into supporting this wretched bill.
James S. Kersey,
Congratulations to the TCU-area homeowners who prevailed in securing the residential status of their area. Whatever their loyalties to TCU, they did not desire “dormitory row” to supplant family-type homes. Your City Council heard your plea.
As Dallas-Fort Worth grows, there is increasing pressure to favor development over maintaining residential areas and their sense of community. Employees want attractive residential areas where quality of life prevails.
The Benbrook City Council is considering building a $1.5 million bridge across the Clear Fork. This is about commercial growth along Interstate 20.
Will developer dollars prevail or the plea of residents for a sanctuary with less traffic, crime and litter?
Loveta Eastes, Benbrook
Don’t mess with Cowtown
Just because Fort Worth is one of the largest cities in Texas is not a good enough reason for Fort Worth to become a sanctuary city.
Surely Mayor Betsy Price knows how special Fort Worth is! “Please Don’t Dallas Our Fort Worth!”

Trump’s not good; he’s grate!
President Donald Trump has been successful in two of his efforts to make good on his campaign promises. He and his administration have created jobs for lawyers across the country.
With his tweets every night, he is making Americans grate, really grate, again and again.
