It's too bad that most people only know about this local law because of all the convoluted legal wrangling. It's too bad that many people only know it as "The Bathroom Bill" and believe it was designed solely to give predators easy access to children. It's too bad the Texas Supreme Court suspended it, and it's too bad that it may face extinction after November. Because for a while there, it served as a nice reminder that Houston wasn't going to put up with discrimination of any kind. If you didn't think it was necessary, just think about the backlash against it and, well, there's half the proof. This should have been a no-brainer, and we hope that in our next "Best of Houston" issue, we can include it as "Best Surviving New Law."
