I really cant wait until all of you old fart bigots with irrational fears of everything move on to the next plane. We might be able to gain some progress in this world finally once the current young generation is in charge.

a reply to: kaylaluv My personal experience trumps your sjw feelings. I can go where ever the hell I want, and shouldn't have to worry about whether the girl im talking to is packing heat.



Right. You are allowed to go where you want, but you aren't entitled to talk to people who aren't transgenders where ever you go. If one comes up to you and hits on you, that is her right as person to do that. It ISN'T your right to hit them or retaliate with violence because you are disgusted though.

I mean your rant is dangerously close to suggesting that transgenders shouldn't be allowed to go to straight bars because YOU can't be inconvenienced by them.


They are.

And they can chat me up.

But they have to be 100% honnest and not be offended when I say no.


It's honestly no different than any other person.

Some posters are making tremendous leaps regarding meeting women in bars, and after "taking them home," they discover they're transgender.

And it absolutely blows my mind that this actually has to be considered, but here it is: Consider getting to know someone a bit better before "taking them home."

If someone were to take someone home, and know so little about them as to the extent that they're unaware that they're transgender, that's on the other persons hands. It's absolutely no different than say if a woman met a man at a bar and brought him home only to be raped.

Perhaps one should consider going on multiple "dates," (what's that mean?) before trying to get it in, and actually know the person they are attempting to pursue something with.

And if this isn't even a consideration and the sole purpose of ones venture is to meet women to sleep with at bars, well - I can honestly say that I would never consider attempting to find a significant other in a bar setting. That's absolutely retarded.

That's probably just the likelihood of a random person abusing a child (and seems low), average in bathroom encounters and it's going to be like 98% more likely a family member or person known to the child molests them.

It's just something I read the other day. I didn't do multiple searches.

But, definitely most molesters of children is someone they know.

I don't know any transgender people and I don't want to either.

I avoid people with obvious mental illness.


(Facepalm)
A) Yes, it's highly likely that you do.
B) You just don't think you know any because they probably won't tell you, due to your misconceptions.
C) I pity you.

I was out to eat and went to the restroom and there was a woman who was standing outside the stall with her young child.

You are male? The men's room?

That woman would be subject to 6 months in jail in Oxford.


Yes and yes. I feel much better know that the sadist can be put behind bars for such heinous crimes.

In all seriousness that's ridiculous. Hardly an issue at all, and definitely should not carry a criminal penalty.

Seeing a woman in a men's bathroom or a man in a woman's bathroom - oh noes, it's zee end of da world!

Creating fear and perpetuating it, the media and people alike - making one another feel unsafe in public restrooms.

I could be wrong, but statistically speaking one would be more likely to be killed in a car accident than attacked/molested or whatever in a public restroom.

Perhaps armed security guards for every bathroom is the solution?

Yes. Checking birth certificates.
Not sure they need to be armed though. On the other hand some transmen are pretty beefy.

It's a little screwed up that if you don't want to get molested/assaulted/raped/murdered the best way to go about it is not having any family or friends.

Penises one room, vaginas the other.

It doesn't matter how you dress up your penis or vagina, just go in the correct door according to anatomy.


Erm, have you seen some of the men who would therefore have to go to the woman's room?

Yes, unfortunately my kid knows.

Luckily didn't go any further then hand up her shirt.

I'm very diligent about my grandson.

The best route to not offending transgenders is not really caring if someone is a guy or a girl unless there is a sexual attraction that might go somewhere. I really couldn't care. I'm not saying it to be rude or offend people I'm just trying to get across that I really dont have an issue or problem is someone believes they were born in the wrong body etc. I mean I dont get why it has to be brought up all the time I AM CAIT is an example of the "Hollywood-ised" version of the battle with Cait always having to deal with something, and I doubt it is that difficult unless you're going around and shouting from the rooftop that you used to be a guy/woman.

If you're looking to change because you dont feel you fit in your body then please do it, you deserve to be as happy as you possibly can in this most of the time, hateful world but please if you don't want some idiot attacking you or saying things about you dont talk about it.

That may just sound worse than it means to.

Who would have thought that going to the bathroom was such a "sexual" experience?

*eye roll*

FTR: I buy coffee and smokes some mornings, and the woman at the counter is a transgendered individual.

I'd honestly feel more uncomfortable seeing her in the men's bathroom. Seriously.

Who would have thought that we would have to manufacture laundry lists of rationales for personally finding something offputting because it is no longer acceptable for an individual to simply say "Yuck! I find the thought of that to be gross and not something I really wish to be bothered with?" Why is it that we have to take a disingenuous tack at approaching this issue? Being completely honest, as well, how many laws do we have a society which are based on little more than the "yuck factor," already? I can name polygamy, public nudity laws, "no shirt, no shoes, no service," public urination, laws requiring dog owners to scoop the poop, neighborhood association rules, school dress codes, etc... all topics for which "Ugh, how gross" can be said by any normal person about without creating a huge verbal war. What makes this issue special, requiring anyone who is simply sick and tired of hearing about it to manufacture some sort of religious, cultural, or public safety rationale behind their justifiable thoughts on it?

Nothing, they're free to leave.

They can quit their job, and leave.

They can finish their drink, and leave.

Gettin' the drift?

I know, right?

This issue just doesn't resonate with me. I use a bathroom for one purpose, and one purpose only. To relieve myself.

Nothing else matters. I truthfully don't care whether that guy using the urinal two slots down, or even right next door, was originally a man or not.

I don't care...and even if I did, how the hell are you going to know? Ask? Now that's just rude, and unnecessary.

You honestly think it's going to work that way? Seriously?

Then why isn't the world all ponies and rainbows starting, oh, thousands of years ago? Y'know, when all those old fogies blocking progress started dyin' off then?

You'll find some opinion that'll piss off the generation(s) that follow you. So it'll be you blockin' all that wonderful progress...

You do realize this would cause 10x the problem right. Literally with this jackassery you are suggesting it would force many trans people of either sex to use a bathroom that they do not look like they match the sex of. So effing stupid.

You really want a man who identies and dresses as a woman to use the same bathroom as you simply because there is still a penis? You realize this also would make people who look like men on the outside use the girls room still right?

Obvious stupidity is obvious.


What is the problem?
All penises in one room, vaginas in the other.
Why should someones fake disguise be allowed to overide anatomy?
People have a reasonable expectation of encountering matching anatomies when they enter a room that is posted gender specific.
If their disguises are good and they squat all the time, nobody would know anyway so why all the fuss? Is it because when they get found out by screaming women who felt their privacy was invaded by a schlong with makeup on, they press charges?

When I'm standing at the urinal I don't care who's standing next to me. I ain't looking, I'm there to do my thing and leave.
