Interesting. Caught my attention that you're averaging over 10K stars per post!

I can understand someone having an identity crisis as to their gender. I don't think the urinal war is going to ease anyone in that predicament. My biggest concern lies with our accomodation of people's feelings that can't be substantiated.

Do we allow the man who identifies as a woman on the women's swim team?

The women's Olympic track team?

The Dallas cheerleader squad?

I worry where this road leads us when we aren't allowed to draw lines in the sand.

OMG..THANK you !!! I am so effing sick of the gender identity crap!!!


Then educate yourself so you actually understand it.

You are not the one suffering or being discriminated against.

Or do you prefer head buried in sand?

You do understand you're suggesting discriminating against the majority of people in this country all over this thread, do you not?



Are they not allowed to go to the bathroom of the gender they identify with?

99% of the population uses the bathroom they identify with.

What you're suggesting is tossing the rights of those 99% aside so Katy who identifies as Ken can walk right into a men's bathroom and everyone there must simply deal with it, or so Ken who identifies as Katy can walk right into a women's bathroom and again, everyone else just has to deal with it as their rights don't matter.

You have offered no solutions which don't trample on the rights of the majority. I however have, coed bathrooms and locker rooms like in Europe. Problem solved.

What's your solution which doesn't trample on the rights of the majority and is equal for everyone while also covering the slippery slope which is "identifying as", as that can go any number of ways.

Then they're not being discriminated against.

Am I arguing against the gender you identify with using the bathroom?

Again with the "Majority Rules Democracy".

We are a Republic. Bill of Rights. 1 has the same equal rights as the many.

Does paranoia have a right of prejudice?

One of the most forceful rebukes came from Tennessee Congresswoman Diane Black.

“I believe the Obama administration is now directly responsible for endangering our students,” she said. “It is worth nothing that this directive does not carry the force of law – and I would encourage Tennessee school officials to continue following their consciences.”

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins told me Congress must intervene to stop what he called an imperial president.

“If the president chooses to go forward with this outrageous order – then congress should begin impeachment proceedings,” he said.

Perkins said the decree should be “resisted with ever legal and moral instrument we have available to us in this country.”

“Every parent, every school board in America should absolutely refuse to sacrifice the safety of their children for the threat of taking away nine federal pennies that make up every educational dollar,” he said.

Resist! That’s the message from Penny Young Nance, president of Concerned Women for America.

“The left always uses children to accomplish its goals of social reengineering,” she said. “The adults closest to these children should decide what’s best for all the children in the school. Safety and kindness should be the guiding principles, not threats from the bullies in Washington.”

Resistance and Impeachment, it's about damn time.
Obama went too far this time.

So you're someone who fills up all these threads talking about how much research you've done and how ignorant and bigoted everyone who disagrees with you is, you essentially bill yourself as the expert but you haven't put any thought into a solution to make it all work?

That's quite remarkable.

Should probably be flagged for trolling. Given you go around here talking down to everyone, most would expect you at least put an ounce of thought into a solution. Instead you're more intent on stirring the pot, classic trolling.

Make what work? You pull the handle, it flushes.

You're trying to get me to answer a question I'm not even asking myself.

I don't have a question. There's no answer to satisfy you, because there's no question.

Forcing all other kids to share bathrooms with kids who have a different anatomy is dictatorial. Couldn't they just separate one private stall in each bathroom for these kids who see themselves as the opposite sex? No, instead all kids have to accept the will of a few. One thing is to teach kids to not discriminate those other kids that see themselves as the opposite sex, and another things is to force them to accept the government mandated opinion.

Oh gawd! Do it for the children.

In most of these transgender cases the majority of the kids are supportive and some even organize rally's and protests.

The kids don't care. Unless their parents make an issue out if it.

1) You're pulling stats out thin air

2) Kids eat boogers and have imaginary friends

3) LAWS, are not up to kids to debate or vote on

Why would you put minors in that situation?
They have no rights to make these decisions.
It won't make it any less indecent exposure legally and even if parents don't make a big deal out of it the state can and then remove the child from the home.

haha kids don't care? You're funny Annie.

That's like saying One Size Fits All, so deal with it, then having a fit because people don't agree with you trying to force a square into a circle or a triangle or whatever your twisted version of reality wants other people to agree with.

I remember you were the same person who went on for hours and hours on the thread about the public open urinals on the streets in San Francisco.

And you mocked people for their concerns of children their too.

Why does it seem you are so adamant about bathroom topics, and dismiss wanting to protect children?

I said human waste was a health hazard.

People need to pee. The open air urinal has a sewer drain and a maintenance crew.

Everybody pees. You really think kids, without their parents influence, are going to be traumatized by seeing someone peering?

Everybody pees. Kids are not that dumb.
