In particular, the Obama Administration is counting mainly on Republicans to pass TPA in the House, but at least a few dozen of the 245 House Republicans look likely to vote against it, leaving the bill short of the 217 votes needed to pass.To make this up, at least 10 Democrats and potentially as many as 20 would need to support the measure.This seems to be roughly where Democratic support is as the moment, but the situation could clearly still change.That said, TPA has an institutional advantage: Republican congressional leaders, who support TPA, can time the vote for when support appears to be sufficient and can make multiple attempts if necessary.Instead, they found out even before birth that the baby was black. They're afraid that the child will have much adversity in the rural all-white community they live in. Unfortunately, for most hard-core transgender supporters, that’s just not the case: In their world, we all must agree. Jenner has not even shed his essential lower male infrastructure, let alone his pesky, clinging XY chromosomes.Because of this, many people are simply too scared to say what they really think. In this sense, he’s actually more of a proverbial Gender Centaur, or even a proverbial Gender Mullet, than anything else. It certainly doesn’t lessen Jenner’s worth as a human being or as a child of God.
From here, the remaining obstacle is the vote in the House of Representatives, which has always appeared to be a higher hurdle than the Senate.
SIMPLY BECAUSE OF WHO YOU ARE.” Cox wrote: I do a lot of speaking these days, and the fact that 2,000 people come out to hear a black transgender woman tell her story gives me high hopes for the world.
I think something about me represents the possibility of being unabashedly who you are.
The House looks likely to vote on TPA at some point in the next three weeks.
In our view, it is more likely that the House will pass TPA than defeat it, though the outcome is harder than usual to predict because support and opposition do not fall cleanly along party lines.
