War on Women.. LOL


I'm a feminist who supports Equality.

It would be very hypocritical of me to support Women's Equality and not Trans Equality.

I've encountered women in the restroom that make me feel uncomfortable. The way restrooms are designed is scary in itself. They're like caves set apart from the rest of the world.

I vote for redesign where individual stalls are along a wall clearly visible to everyone. Washrooms and mirrors can be separate in an open area.

Then take some time to familiarize yourself with the entire convo.


From what we are told of transgenders, they were never in harmony with their bodies, so they never knew what the proper body felt like. There is actually no way for us to imagine that.


You must have missed the part in the post you attacked me for where I said the above. That seems to me a recognition of what you are angry about.

Oh look at that, good for you. Well I guess until we as a society become more enlightened Im going to have to rely on my second amendment rights along with the legal ability to conceal carry to protect me from violent biggots because a small handful of perverts have ruined it for those of us that just want equality. a reply to: infolurker

You know about the: "We just need to Pee" campaign?




Safe bathroom access is not a luxury or a special right. Without safe access to public bathrooms, trans & genderqueer people and people who don’t fit gender stereotypes are denied full participation in public life. For many of us, finding a safe place to use the bathroom is a daily struggle.

You just need to use and shower in the female locker room as well? Forcing Women to have "biological men" in their locker room is a bit much don't you think? As stated previously, what prevents "anyone" from claiming to be transgender and use the female facilities unchallenged?


Nope, don't have a problem with it. I'm not averse to co-ed locker rooms either. People adapt.

But, we are not talking about Men being "Men". Are we.

They can watch me go in the stall and lock the door behind me.

Then you should know as well as me that it's intellectually dishonest to compare subjective "feelings" of dysphoria to one who lost a limb in service to their country. But then you're the lucky one... you're still here with both combat-boot clad feet intact. Apparently it's very easy for you to blow off the sacrifices of others when all is good for you. Okay. If that's who you want to be, that's your choice.

And showers and locker rooms?

And preventing men pretending or claiming to be transgender to get unchallenged access to womens bathrooms and locker rooms?

Cmon, have some common sense here.

A lot of people on this thread clearly have no idea what transgender people are or what they go through. LOL

So many stupid people on this thread.

It's not about men wanting to use the women's room because they're perverts. LOL

Why are so many people

Racist
Sexist
Homophobic
Misogynists
Xenophobic


Because they're ignorant, small minded, insecure assholes that's why.

What prevents men pretending or claiming to be transgender from getting unchallenged access to womens locker rooms and bathrooms? Have a brain.

There are more perverts than transgenders in the country. This is insanity.

I think part of the problem is everyone is so afraid of their own shadows now days that statically improbable scenarios are enough to cause people to deny entire groups of people equality based on irrational fears. Its sad it really is.

I think it is more to do with people liking the way things are, equality be damned, and then finding any reason they can think of to maintain the status quo. Change is tough. It is much easier to keep things the way they are.

Now it is irrational fear?

LOL, you know that putting women at risk nation wide is wrong.

Again, What prevents any man from claiming to be transgender in accessing womens locker rooms and bathrooms unchallenged because to even challenge it is discrimination!!!

Cmon. Seriously answer the question. You cannot because you know it is the truth.

You are placing your wants and safety over that of a country full of women and little girls, many of which have a lesser chance of defending themselves than you do, and it is wrong. And you know it is wrong and will do it anyway.
