This is part 2 of a discussion with my wife Chelsea about the Equality Act and our deep concerns about its consequences.
We address these basic questions about the potential effect of the Equality Act:
- Could it crush female sports?
- Could it harm female privacy and safety in restrooms, locker rooms, and dressing rooms?
- Could it undo the security and charity of shelters?
