Are you suggesting that the following is untrue?
Suggesting? NO, I have flat out said it quite clearly.

The Houston Chronicle (the paper of record here) suggests you are flat out wrong on this issue as does the actual text of the "HERO" ordinance..
"The proposed amendment would remove that paragraph of the expansive ordinance. Transgender people barred access to a restroom still would be able to file a discrimination complaint to the city's Office of Inspector General under the process outlined for all protected characteristics, such as race and veteran status."
and the actual text of the HERO ordinance.
"ARTICLE IV. PUBLIC ACCOMMODATIONS
Sec. 17-51 Prohibition against discrimination in public accommodations
(a) It shall be unlawful for any place of public accommodation or any employee or agent thereof to intentionally discriminate against any person on the basis of any protected characteristic, except as required by federal or state law or court order."
Gender identity is a "protected characteristic" under the HERO ordinance.
