The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one. Democratic weights and processes are only acceptable when you do as I order you to do anyways. Even if there is 1 vs. 200.

You have been voted off the island.

If you don't like democratic processes try another country.

Yeah it would be hard.

I am glad we do agree on this part.

And on that note, get the popcorn ready. I love how these topics drop into go die rants.

But back to the op, say anything else you want this comes down to lilas feelings and the girls feelings, and which one takes priority. Really nothing else matters. Since the other facility was refused there is no other immediate solution.

You got it right, MY KIND. I've already been pushed aside by some of my own based on certain differences so I and others like me don't really belong anywhere and that hurts. I'm done hurting (myself anyway) over this issue. So your right, I'm different, weird, screwed up whatever you wanna say I don't care anymore I'm going to LOVE MYSELF and OTHERS like me and offend those that offend us, SIMPLE. I want to fight and welcome anyone that feels the same way to engage

Your right their are two opposing sides to this and given obvious similarities I'm on team Lila just for the eff of it. In a more rational time I could have understood the opposing argument and possibly made concessions but now I have no compassion left. Us vs Them well i'm on team us every time here on out.

Sounds like a very smart choice. Less issues and problems with unisex showers for those Who Choose to use them. Choice is key. They are providing women and girls no choice on the subject and forcing them to accept "anatomical men" in their facilities with no ability to challenge or object.

What prevents any biological man from claiming to be transgender in accessing womens locker rooms and bathrooms completely unchallenged because to even challenging is discrimination!!!

Sexual predator jailed after claiming to be ‘transgender’ in order to assault women in shelter
www.lifesitenews.com...

Examples of Sexual Predators Using These Ordinances to Commit Crimes
Here are six examples where sexual predators have used similar laws as cover to gain access to commit their crimes. You can examine the links to the document provided by the Human Rights Campaign (who helped author Ordinance 6141) and the Purdue University policy.

www.yesonquestion1.net...


There are a hell of allot more perverts and predators than transgenders in the nation.

There is no physical need for a transgender anatomical male to utilize the womens facilities. It is an emotional desire.

The wants of the few outweigh the Safety of the many?? Really?

You do not put the greater whole of women and little girls in Physical Risk to accommodate an emotional desire.

If this goes through, yes, it will really be a true war on Women and women will push back and push back hard.

As stated previously, what prevents "anyone" from claiming to be transgender and use the female facilities unchallenged?

These days there are 3 dunnies - one for blokes, one for women and one for the disabled. Sometimes there is a forth one for mums and bubs.

I suggest that to make everyone happy, the transgender use the disabled toilet - not because they are disabled of course but because it is neither and both male and female toilet and quite often is unoccupied.

Now, that is a solution - don't read too much into the label of the toilets - I'm about solutions and moving forward, not dwelling in the present talking about the problem.

Your choice, have at it. I personally prefer the go at it alone approach myself but to each his or her own. Considering this is lilas senior year, don't really see anything being done to resolve this. As it is she has dropped out of PE and can either worked to not get failed or maybe its not required...don't know if it is or isn't. Story will be gone in a few days till some similar pops up and everyone will be back making the same points. It is what it is.

As one who is on your side of the issue, may I suggest that it's you method of delivery?

Wishing death on people? Seriously? What the hell do you suppose that's going to accomplish?

May I suggest stepping back and taking a deep breath or two?

What does Caitlyn Jenner's reputation have anything to do with using her as an example of how some transgenders still like the opposite sex? You used your dislike of her as a way of attacking me for my opinion! Furthermore, where in my post did I even say tansgenders are not adjusted productive members of society? You than volley hate against military aged Caucasian males! Boredwithhaters, you should practice what you preach!

Maybe Lila has second thoughts and uses the other facility. I don't think too much else can be done especially if this class is a requirement. On that note I'm done with this thread. It's fallen into something beyond debate.

Have fun all. Props to jade. We don't seem to agree on this issue but you presented yourself well throughout

Let the personal plumbing match the gender of the facility. No males in female shower room.

This is pretty stupid honestly. It's not like a female teen is going to ever see a p***s in porn or in real life. As long as she respects everyone's space and they respect her, then just move along. Otherwise this is a hissy fit.

Your Attention Please.



Okay folks, we (ATS Staff) have asked several times in this thread to please remain on topic, do not discuss each other and to leave the insults out of it.

We understand that some subjects are rather touchy or debates can get very heated. However, we still expect all ATS members to act with civilty and decorum while posting here at ATS.

This thread is hereby shut down for a cooling off period. Take this time to walk away for a bit, take a break, and, how about reviewing some of these links?

Community Announcement re: Decorum

*** ALL MEMBERS *** Ending Rudeness, Hate, Bigotry: Getting Back to Basics

We will let you know when the thread is opened back up.

However, a word of warning: if after being opened back up, the bad behavior continues, the thread will be shut down and left that way.
