Anita Staver is president of the extreme far right. pseudo-Christian law group known as the Liberty Counsel, and she just made a big announcement on Twitter: From now on, she will carry a handgun with her when she goes to the bathroom at Target just in case she needs to shoot any transgender people she finds in there.
As was first reported on the blog site JoeMyGod:
“Liberty Counsel president Anita Staver declared Friday that she will be taking her Glock .45 handgun to Target as protection against assaults by transgender patrons.”
Sure enough, point your browser over to Twitter and you can see this:

If Staver’s last name sound familiar, that’s because she’s the wife of Mat Staver, the homophobic dillhole who most recently defended Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis as she tried unsuccessfully to deny same-sex couples marriage licenses in direct defiance of the United States Supreme Court.
Perhaps it’s time we address these hateful people in a manner they can understand, so here goes:
If you live in the mortal fear that a transgender person will use the same bathroom as you, then you need to stay locked in your home like the pathetic misanthrope you are. If, on the other hand, you choose to go out in public and move amongst the rest of us who could care less what is happening in a restroom, then you’ll just have to adjust to the fact that–gasp!–a transgendered person might be using the facilities at the same time.
In Europe, many public bathrooms are unisex, so both men and women use them. But there hasn’t been a rash of sexual assaults in European restrooms. And there won’t be in American ones, either.
So, the message to people like Anita Staver is clear: You’re on the wrong side of history, and you will continue to lose. Have fun locked in your house.
