Pretty sure a trans executive, manager, or employee has an opinion.


I never said they didn't. But as a business, it comes down to bottom line and what will increase revenue.

Since LGBT is at most only 3% of the population, it can't be because they think it will appreciably increase their customer base. They are probably thinking this will somehow generate more positive PR than negative.

Also, funny how liberals think about the people in a business as people, when they agree with the decisions the business makes. Otherwise it's more of the same 'corporations aren't people!'

I "love" how this repeated statement somehow makes it OK to discriminate.

1 - 2 percent of humans are Redheads. They can't pee either, because they're out numbered.

I am not. I have three kids, was a kid, and coach judo and wrestling. I have coached in two states. None of the kids use the showers.


Happy for you. I have a kid who uses a shower at camp. I have a locker room where I change for work. The fitness club I (rarely) go to has a locker room. Some people like hygiene. I don't particularly care to see normal naked guys when I'm in there, what makes you think I'd want to see a naked woman who has undergone plastic surgery and hormone therapy?

Penises in the men's area, Vaginas in the women's area. That's pretty straightforward and equal.

It's not just liberals. It's also libertarians. Or anyone who runs a bussiness. Your arguement is fragmented trolling nonsense. What else do you hate about liberals.

Let me see if I can find one to argue the opposite point of view

Here is a libertarian one.

It's rediculous the states are wasting tax payer money to make a symbolic law that will fail and can't be inforced without invading privacy.

Are they using the correct bathrooms for their physically expressed gender? If so, there is no problem huh?

Or are you saying that redheads are some mystical third gender?

Apparently you didn't understand her argument. Statistics doesn't give you the right to discriminate.

I don't want to see obese people naked but they exist and deserve dignity too. I choose not to stare at them.

The world doesn't care about your bigotry and superstitions.

You really, honestly, believe a transgender is going to advertise?

Did you see those pix of little m/f girls? You're stating you want those little girls to use the men's facilities.

Who said I hate liberals? I'm commenting on the hypocrisy and cognitive dissonance.

If a major city is going to pass a law that the state legislature doesn't agree with, they will call a special session.

As for invading privacy, something else that liberals (and some libertarians) only care about when it affects their side... what about the privacy of the other people in those bathrooms/locker rooms/showers?

Oh I understood it just fine, then I shot down her argument as silly.

I'm using the numbers for bottom line market share and customer base for business decisions, not as a reason to discriminate. But thanks for the strawman argument!

There is no privacy issue. The issue is you needing to stare at people. If someone is gawking at you you have every right to report them and they will still get in trouble.

Public is not private.

Emergency sessions on an unenforceable law is waste. Period.

Hate to do this again but some people just don't get it.

Dudes in the ladies room - no thanks.


Our daughters in the men's room? Over my dead body.

Ah yes, the Good Old Days when the undesirable were hid in closets.

How about someone with prosthetic limbs. I'm sure that must offend someone.

Biology is not bigotry ... and when exactly did I mention religion in any of my arguments? Is your theophobia showing?

What strawman? You're the one who said you can discriminate because there's not as many of them.

You didn't shut down anything.

It was you who chose to use percentage of population as your argument.

No, the issue is the comfort of one person versus the comfort of the rest of the people. If one person's comfort matters, then all people's comfort matters equally. If it is easier for one person to be uncomfortable than 10, then you make the one person uncomfortable.

Otherwise we don't care about anyone's comfort and people go to the correct bath/locker/shower for their expressed biology regardless of how they feel.

Especially if they have a penis and go in the women's room, amiright?
