Have you been listening to any of the concerns anyone has addressed here at all? Of course you haven't silly me.

It's the far religious right who'd like to see all women in burqas - can't have 'em showing any skin to the menfolk. People have penises and vaginas - shocking!

Forcing one's daughter to share a bathroom with a pervert is pretty authoritarian.


a reply to: Ohanka


Time to stop this "gender identity" madness. Gender coincides with biological sex. Some people can be deformed and need surgery, all others are mental illness. These people need professional help, not "acceptance".


and here we have it. It's not really about fears of sexual assault, nor is really about creeping authoritarianism (though, let's get real — telling people which restroom to use is about as authoritarian as it gets), it's about disgust for trans people.

In other news, as DBCowboy pointed out:


How were transgendered people going to the bathroom last week, last month, last year?


They've been going to the restroom of their choice all along and the "illicit photography industry" didn't boom because of it, sexual assaults in restrooms committed by trans people haven't ever been an issue and the world has kept spinning along just like it always has.

Um, yeah, I guess I'm a bit more in touch with reality than some.
I remember what it was like in school.

If you think for one minute kids will not take advantage of this, your mistaken. As I posted above, if the schools fixed the bathrooms, then hey, no problem.

Kids try to take advantage of lots of things. That's why you have rules and consequences for breaking those rules. If a kid tries to sneak into the girls shower so he can get a peak, he'll get caught and he will get punished - just like before.

Yeah won't take long for some horny kid to figure out he can put on tights to flash all the girls in the bathroom between every class.

We do understand your concern but this issue is overblown. It's a manufactured fear from the far right. It was never an issue for years.

This is what happens when school districts decide to decide how bathrooms are used:
CNN

It's an unimaginable horror. A 14-year-old girl with special needs allegedly was raped at school after a teacher's aide persuaded her to act as bait to catch an accused sexual predator, a fellow student. "It has essentially devastated her life," attorney Eric Artrip -- who represents the girl and her father -- said of the alleged January 2010 incident.

They sent her into a boys bathroom, as bait.
It worked.
With less than wonderful results.

What I find so amazing about this whole kerfuffle is numbers involved.

"Census economist Benjamin Cerf Harris looked at people who’d changed their names to those typically associated with the opposite gender and/or registered a different sex with the Social Security Administration (SSA). Harris found that since the SSA began in 1936, 135,367 people have altered their name to one of the opposite gender and a little more than 30,000 have changed their sex accordingly. Of those who’d participated in the 2010 census, nearly 90,000 had changed their name and 21,883 had changed their sex, too."

See: nymag.com...

So, we're talking about maybe as low as 0.3 to as high as 0.5% of the population of the US?

Only in a country as incredibly wealthy as the US could be spending this much time and money worrying about accommodations for .5% of the population.

I guess some people don't get it. It's not the transgenders, that people worry about, its the damn pedophiles and perverts who will take advantage of this now being a norm, and doing something. Yes, they can attempt it now, but a mother with a child sees a man dressed like a woman in the bathroom, she calls the cops, maces them, or whatever. Once this other crap passes, after a while they won't even think twice about it.

Forcing this crap on kids? who are just discovering hormones? Who are being forced to identify in 1st grade? Yeah, thats not going to end well.

That's funny because that's all I'm hearing from all the snowflakes here who are freaking out. Omergerd! Child abuse! Authoritarianism! World's gonna end! Blah blah blah


Don't worry, when Trump gets in and appoints judges all this PC crap will get broomed back into the closet where it belongs. Things like this will be left up to local school boards and these illegal executive actions that bypass Congress will be properly deemed unconstitutional.

I'm gonna start taking dumps in the women's bathroom. If confronted I'll lie and say I'm transgendered.

Just a joke obviously, but really how are they gonna prove otherwise?

Ha ha, Trump thinks transgenders should be able to go to whatever bathroom they want to.

I understand but the law changes nothing. Perverts don't care about laws.

That's a rather large jump to make. A teacher's aide comes up with an idea that culminated in the rape of a student and suddenly that gets turned in to "this is what happens when school districts get to decide!"

That's a head scratcher.
