In House Bill 99, men will be able to demand admittance into women’s shelters, simply by stating that they are women. If shelter operators refuse them, they can sue for discrimination.
HB 99 will be heard in House Community and Regional Affairs Committee at 8 am on Tuesday.
The bill adds gender identity to the list of conditions that may not be discriminated against in Alaska. The author, Rep. Jennie Armstrong, is a recent leftist transplant from Louisiana, who moved to Alaska, declares herself to be a pansexual, and successfully ran for House in 2022.
