As a young man working in an all night diner it fell on me, as the only man working the over-night shift, to remove the trannys from the ladies restroom. This was always after the bars closed and there were freaks of every sort who were drunk and hungry at the diner. Don't misunderstand me, I enjoyed them all and it was great fun to feed them at 2am.
It was the cops that came in at 5am who acted like jerks. Sometimes some female patrons would complain about the trans being in their restroom. I removed them and there was never any problem, they were always friendly.
When I asked some "repeat offenders" why do we have to go through this every time, I was told that the mirror in the mensroom was too short so they could not check how they looked in their outfits.
So is it possible that longer mirrors in the mens might stop this whole, ridiculous debate?
I think I am a regular American man of my generation, working, have kids/grandkids, veteran, class of '82, Predatory perverts is one issue, but guys in skirts just don't cause me any alarm.
Don't we have bigger problems to concern ourselves with?

You do know that "tranny" is like using the "N" word, right?

Are you referring possibly to cross dressers or men in drag? That is not a transgender.

If there was a real transgender - - it is unlikely anyone would have known they were not the gender they appeared as. They don't advertise it.

I don't need to demean for you what you already do.

It's not the changer that turns, it is the clothed against the wall.

How is your experience the opposite?

Negotiating with those with purposefully neglectful and antagozing attitudes isn't my forte.

Frankly wouldn't want it to be.

The issue is now it can be manipulated and WHO has the authority to decide if someone is trans-gendered or not? Look, I am all for forward progress but it has to be at the 50,000 foot level and not at the bathroom door.





Creepy. Very creepy.

Raped and molested by the same group of people. Deviants is all I've ever seen. Will never wish the invasive thoughts I have on my children.

All because I was good looking and respectful to all people and was raised by young, liberal, and sheltered parents without any understanding of the heart of people, even their own selfishness.

My kids are taught to love and respect all, and not judge, but ever be suspicious of all people. Trust none that haven't earned that, and still keep one eye open.

Not what I said but nice try.

I see, so now because mommy and daddy are very uptight about their bodies everyone else that CANNOT EVEN SEE THEM needs to conform to their puritanical standards. Okie dokie.

It would appear that it is not straight/gay people that are the issue for you, it is naked people that are the issue. Let me help you. If you do not ever want there to be a chance of your children being exposed to naked people do not take them into a public locker room.

Not only that but it seems your using your anecdotal to dictate legislation in favor of your beliefs.
There is no rationale for this bathroom policy to exist.
This issue with transgenderism has nothing to do with what bathrooms they use and how this will effect the children. It all comes down to your inability to be at peace with the idea. You're hiding behind the children excuse like any old slimy politician to bolster the "threat".

Reread the implication of my response.

Affording my children the right of privacy is right. You're grasping at an argument now.

I am not dictating legislation.

You people should Really Read.

My question twice now has been, Why can't you just go and relieve yourself where your anatomy fits? No need to bring ink and paper into this.

Anyone remember when the United States was going to fall into a cesspool of rape when the unisex bathrooms were put in? So, nothing really happened after that, did it? Unisex bathrooms still exist and nothing really changed at all. Wait, we changed the name to "family" restrooms instead of unisex, but all in all...

I guess this is the new fake outrage?

Very sorry to hear that friend.

No one has implied here it is only the gender reassociated who do this.

The argument is that even non reassociated now have more tools at their disposal.

Reading, please.

Anyone who supports these laws would ever have a hard time arguing against gun control laws.

Laws don't stop criminals. But these laws will place increasing burdens on law-abiding transgender people.

Your children have privacy in a private stall which is private by definition. You are even kind enough to make them face the wall so they do not have to stare at your naked body in all its wondrousness and non-deviant sexuality.

You're right, laws don't stop criminals, they afford them tools! If you saw your own analogy, you'd get what is being said.

Yes because currently there is a magic barrier keeping the rapists out...and that barrier exists only because of some law...

So Bruce Jenner is not a tranny? If the people I was talking about could pass as female, no body would have complained.
I do not care that some peoples perception of my use of a word is offensive. I was brought up knowing that the N-word was hurtful to some of my friends so I didn't use it. Then I moved to Florida and found out how hated I am and that word found a new meaning in my vocabulary. I don't think you have enough life experience to judge or correct me.

There are already laws against molestation and rape.
