Show Less 3 Comments 0 Daisy Doll there has been a prevalent queer community in columbia for decades. as a trans* person who almost had to immediately move out of state, it can be scary. protections like this are important to minorities. queer people deserve human rights too. Reply Reply 0 Daisy Doll queer people need safe spaces in a majority red state, especially within the legislature. queer people are humans too Reply Reply Harry D Queer people should not be recruiting children or trying to take over women's sports. Gender dysphoria is a mental disease. It should be treated not encouraged by politically correct adults jumping on the bandwagon. 0 J B (Socom_Specter) Columbia thrives as the liberal hub of Missouri, it's obvious that the city has leaned towards being more welcoming than the rest of the state. Everyone should feel safe no matter what their personal preferences are. That last sentence is the reason I voted this way.

To allow them into the bathroom with my grandaughter is NOT. Same for women acting like men. Reply Reply 2 Lida Vitt I absolutely disagree with any city becoming a Sanctuary for any group. The laws take care of all the people in their community if law enforcement and judges follow the laws. Reply Reply 2 Belinda Kitchen It should be left alone ! Columbia has enough crime and issues as it is . There is enough of them running around and we don't need the crime and people to spread north in the state . People should stand up for their rights and beliefs. God made you a woman you stay that way , God made U a man be 1. Reply Reply 2 Zaos Gonzolez If you want to feel safe, carry a semi-auto pistol with at least a 15 round magazine. Practice, train, dry-fire, every single day. I promise you'll feel safe and it'll change your life. Reply Reply 2 Harry D MU Socialists - ROFLMAO@Y. The socialists are just asking for the laws they do not like not be to be enforced. That is wrong. This is just another example of socialists trying to destroy western culture. No child should be mutilated. Girls sports for real girls only. Don't like it? Move.
