I see this law as making sure that Two beered up guys who have no morals, don't decide to go to a jr. high female locker room and claim they identify as a female, so their presence is allowed. (in the south, we call that common sense)



You want to deny Equal Rights to a minority because "something might happen"?



It's a shame you always go off half cocked. If you had payed attention to any of my previous posts on this, I think the original law is ignorant and never ever should have been made, so none of this would be necessary. If this never happened, the HB2 knee jerk bill wouldn't have happened, and all the fallout would not be on NC.

We were set up. And now we are going to be forced into complying with anything the liberal left wants or be financially ruined from the kids who need free lunches up, thanks to Obama.

I think everyone should be able to do what they have always done. And I think common sense should be used in cases where someone has a problem with anything.

Sure hung up on dicks, aren't you?

I'll offer my personal opinion in answer to your question: No.

Let's be reasonable, some lines have to be drawn and one would think common sense should prevail. 99% of transgender women are not going to flaunting body parts they are embarrassed by and ashamed of and go to great and often painful lengths to conceal.

You're going to have your 1%'ers who think this is okay or cross-dressers or others that have no sensitivity at all for the feelings of others. Do we make the 99% suffer just because some asshole might think this is okay and do this? I don't think so.



How are the 99% suffering if, as you say, they don't want to engage in such a thing anyway? How would a law banning them from women's shower and changing rooms hurt them? They should understand that it is for everyone's comfort. Rest room's should be ok. But nowhere where there is an expectation of nudity should people with opposite sex organs mingle.


Are you freaking kidding? A Law banning transgender women(passable ones) and forcing them into the men showers and changing rooms is very very bad. You want a Assault to happen so then you can turn around and blame them for it too? Its for Everyones comfort BUT THEIRS and that violates their rights under the constitution. Also you dont have to strip off all your clothes in a shower if you dont want to do so.

As to the 99 percent shes talking about letting the minority make the rest of us all suffer. She was addressing people in GENERAL with that line.

Sorry, not buying it. You're fear-mongering based on the fact that "something might happen". If they have male sex organs and feel uncomfortable getting naked in front of the same sex, then no one is forcing them to. By the same token, why make natural born women feel uncomfortable by allowing them in there.

I'll never understand why, with you people, that the comfort of these transgenders matter while the exact same kind of comfort that everyone else should have doesn't. How can you justify one be sacrificed for the other?

I'm all for affording everyone constitutional rights but not at the expense of an even greater number of people's rights. There must some other way we can accomodate everyone.

Go back and read. You're confused.

Half-cocked because of one simple question? I just narrowed down all the "talking around".

You do realize it was Fundie Type Moms who started this by outing a transgender student - - - not the other way around.

Paranoid Fundie Type Moms started this, not the Liberal Left.

"Cat forced out of the Bag" and you want to put it back, sweep it under the rug.

Interesting how you consider yourself the victim.




Not in My Name: 6 Reasons This Cisgendered Woman Pastor Stands for Bathroom Justice

3) White women’s “safety” has been used to discriminate for too long: After the Civil War during the Reconstruction period, the religious “Redemption Movement” began among white churches that preached on and “portrayed black men as ravishing beasts eager to rape white women.” During the Civil Rights movement, the week after the famous march on Selma happened, Sheriff Jim Clark who lead the crackdown on the protestors called it the “raping of Selma” and stirred fear that there would be a boom of interracial babies soon born to white women.

Shower and changing rooms should be a safe space for those of a single sex to be comfortable in a state of undress. You are taking that right away in favor of giving the right of transgenders who identify as another gender to change with the opposite sex. How is that equal?

I'm all for regular restrooms being used by which gender you identify with because there is no expectation nudity. But any place where is such an expextation needs to remain divided by sex.

They are.

Stats prove that from states that have transgender rights.

Paranoia, on the other hand, is a personal problem.

Wow. You're so fixated on making a point no one is even arguing. Do you even have a grasp on what this argument is about? I never once said that trans people are more likely to attack anyone, not once. Why would I? That's rediculous. So I'm sure your post can't possibly be directed toward me. Stop assuming what my position is, if that is what you think.

Of course I know what your argument is about.

I am a woman, I have 2 daughters, I have a granddaughter.

However, I advocate for Equal Rights above all else.

YOU are not losing any rights to go to the bathroom. You keep victimizing yourself that you are somehow losing rights. You are not.

I never said I was losing that right. And neither are transgenders.

See? This is what I mean. Why should I bother arguing with you. When you won't even take the time to read my posts. You just knee-jerk react to them. For example I never once used the general term "bathroom".

And all facilities, such as locker rooms, showers, etc.

I'll say it one more time, because I'm tired of having to repeat myself for someone who can't even be bothered to completely read my posts before arguing with me:

Standard restrooms should be determined to be acceptable due to the absence of the expectation of nudity. They should be based on gender-identity.

However, due to the expectation of possible nudity, shower and changing rooms should be based on sex(vagina or penis).

I feel we will need to officially categorize what are standard restrooms and what are changing/shower rooms (laws, regulations, signs and such)
