Think more fat hairy gross man that identifies as a straight male and less an androgenic person with an inner conflict. I am okay with the second choosing,
Sexual predators are hyper sexual monsters, and being able to choose any restroom at any time will help them gain access to, essentially, a new parking lot, or alley or whatever other areas are known for such crimes.
I still think bathrooms are just fine how they've always been. Nothing needs to change.
Are you really this dense? So, there's going to be a lie detector by every bathroom? Make sure every big hairy man honestly feels like a girl, otherwise it wont let him in?
I'm talking about opportunistic perverts looking to hurt people in a way that might be one day legally easier for them.
What the hell piece of legislation is going to require a person to be honest? What type of security measures are you implying, if it's to check which restroom someone used the day before?
I'm taking about Liars and predators, not trans people. Get with the topic.
Several states and major cities have supported transgender people’s bathroom access for years. There are more than a dozen states and several cities that have non-discrimination laws that protect gender identity in public accommodations, which is a legalistic way of saying transgender people can use whatever bathrooms they want in public.
Fears about male predators have not been borne out in those places. New York City has banned discrimination based on gender identity for more than a decade. California has affirmed the rights of K-12 students to use the bathrooms and locker rooms that align with their gender identity for years. Advocates say that while there are some past examples of heterosexual men dressing up like women to gain access to women’s spaces, there’s no record of that behavior increasing when there’s an LGBT non-discrimination law on the books. “We have so many places that do prohibit discrimination where this has never come up,” says the Equality Federation’s Rebecca Isaacs. “This is a red herring.”
Police and school officials say they haven’t seen it either. Media Matters, a liberal media watchdog, has asked state leaders, law enforcement and school officials in places with these protections whether they’ve seen any increase in sexual assault or rape after passing these laws, and they have repeatedly said that they have not. “We have not seen that,” a Des Moines police department spokesman told the outlet in 2014. “I doubt that’s gonna encourage the behavior. If the behavior’s there, [sexual predators are] gonna behave as they’re gonna behave no matter what the laws are.”
In a study from UCLA’s Williams Institute, nearly 70% of transgender people said they had experienced verbal harassment in a situation involving gender-segregated bathrooms, while nearly 10% reported physical assault.
Okay, then I'm asking, what is your way to ensure a Cis gender doesn't use the opposite facility? What is your security measure to make sure a straight cis gender man doesn't use the women's restroom?
If you have no measures, how is that not making it easier for people previously denied access, suspected, etc, access to an area they couldn't so easily get into before?
Tell me, please, how it would not be easier for a predator to wait around in a woman's restroom. Under liberal ideology, a big hairy man could sing "I'm a lady" all the way into the girls bathroom, even while traffic is normal or higher, sit in a stall for an hour, wait to be with one other and come out.
