The vast majority of Americans, if left to come to their own conclusions, ultimately don't give a flying turd who drops one where in the heat of the bowel movement. Quit acting like such a special snowflake, princess. Everybody s#s, everybody pisses. The only thing offensive in shared bathrooms is foul odors.


Does this extend to locker rooms? Showers? If not, why?

So you think that you can just walk in to a girls/women's locker room and its no big deal? How about we make special restrooms for special snowflakes and the rest of just do what's normal? Problem solved!

Why should it be a big deal? There's nudist beaches and camps all over the world, most are even family-friendly. If we can manage that, I think we can swing bathrooms & locker rooms.

S&F. I can only hope that this could end this silly, illogical debate. But it won't.

I haven't commented on this issue in any forum yet, but this is how I feel about bathrooms. Anyone's house I've ever been to, regardless of how many bathrooms they had, never had a male or female designation for their bathroom. If I was staying at anyone's house, I'd use the same toilet or shower that everyone else uses. Normally the household owners have their personal hygiene supplies all over the bathroom, male and female all together. That is what is normal at people's homes.

So public privies are somewhat different, but if they can put baby changing tables in both restrooms, then who cares about other accommodations like a small feminine napkin waste basket in the stall? They have handicap stalls with special features, perhaps designate stalls for other special needs too. They could make all public restrooms unisex or keep the current system but add some private unisex bathrooms nearby. Some people may want the privacy regardless of their gender, natural or reassigned.

Concerning public schools, I don't believe there should be any gender reassignment for minors under the age of 18. Any students with problems arising from gender identity should be treated on a case by case basis. School dress codes could help by requiring a gender neutral uniform or dress according to genetic sex rather than personal sexual identity.

Overall though, it sounds like a less important and tiny issue when talking about individual rights and personal liberties in this country today.

It's fine for you to insult those of us with a Southern drawl, yet when another poster says something you don't like, you scream for the Mods to censor it.
Hypocrite much?



Nice try, I'm from the south and have a slight drawl myself so I'm only speaking truth but if that offends you then you need tougher skin.

I wasn't actually offended by that other poster simply because he and you both are nothing to me, you do not put food on my table or money in my pocket and I do not know let alone personally interact with you, essentially you are nothing more than a bigot on the other end of a computer from my viewpoint.

Even though I may not personally care about the petty ramblings of someone with such a black and bitter heart, calling me or any other person of a sound reasonable mind "mentally ill" or worse an "idiot" simply because you do not like them for what or who they are is both imbecilic and offensive. Now go pull your panties out of your crack bud.

If you say so...

But just so you know, here in America, there is no such thing as a " family locker room" where everyone just disrobes as a family unit with other family units.... That is actually fairly disturbing honestly.


That's what I was thinking..but I was also thinking that maybe I'm just a really sheltered person haha..

RainbowPhoenix, I would be proud to stand/sit next to you in the stall/urinal in any men's/ladies room, after reading your last response. Nicely stated!

Perhaps you are. My local YMCA has both a family fitness room and a family changing room.

And yes, I live in America.

My skin is just fine. You seem to be the one who's irritated enough to start calling names. That, in my book, is an automatic fail on your part. Personal insults are the last resort of a weak mind.
How would you know I'm a bigot? Did I make a statement on the subject or are you just throwing whatever you got and hoping something sticks?
If you'll go back and read, I am not the one who called you anything. You seem to be lashing out at whoever is in range. I just pointed out the hypocrisy of someone who thinks it's perfectly fine to insult people because of their accent, seeming to insinuate a lesser intelligence, but when it comes to something that offends you [ and it must have, you said so yourself..



I'm not quite sure how you get away with saying these sorts of things, T&C's don't apply to all it would seem. I find you to be extremely offensive and intentionally abrasive. I'm actually offended because I am neither mentally ill or an idiot. Come on mods do your jobs and not let people get away with broadly just insulting people.


so why are you backpedalling now? ], you want the Mods to jump in and protect your little snowflake feelings.
You went to all that trouble to tell me I mean nothing to you.
Hmm. Must have hit a nerve.

I've seen enough of your post's in other threads to come to that conclusion and I assume by calling you a name that is what you were referring to? Yet you can not see that calling someone an idiot is an insult? I didn't start the name calling, remember I was called mentally ill and an idiot and I defended myself in return then you just show up jump on the hate wagon and start coming at me. Shoo fly shoo don't bother me any more.

Prove it.
I think you're confusing bigot with common sense. My heart doesn't bleed for every "cause" the SJWs try to invent. But, I agree, you're not worth wasting time on, so we'll end it here.

And what would you do in there? Observe women looking at you wierd? Is busting into the locked stalls part of it?

America is about 50 to 100 years behind Europe on the whole sexuality and social etiquette thing. It literally is that simple.

I cant wait till we progress as a nation. Anybody who has any issues with this bathroom thing please do not reproduce. If it is to late, dont teach your children a thing about your own beliefs so they can evolve. Please.

In short, WTF is wrong with you?

You want men oogling your female children? And your wife?

Keep that weirdo crap in your country of origin, we don't need your idiotic lifestyle here!


Well Sargeras, I was born in Brooklyn NY. So were my parents. So this is my country of origin.

Is that what YOU do when you see naked women and children, oogle them? It sounds like YOU are the one with issues if oogling children is on your mind. I assure you my children are well trained how to handle that.

When we use the family locker room at the YMCA there are changing rooms available. Some people use them. Some don't. Some people are capable of being nude around others without oogling them.

Europe is made of drastically smaller nations that can more easily accommodate its citizens in comparison to the United States. Most countries there can fit multiple nations into just one of some states in the USA. I would not say that America is 50 to 100 years behind, America has a whole slew of issues that are so starkly different than that of Europe I can't see this as accurate.

If you are born with a xx chromosome than you are a female. If you are born with a xy chromosome than you are a male. No more arguments. That's it. Stay in your own restroom.


So how does that work in certain college dorms where there are coed bathrooms and showers? Or in other countries where all they have is unisex bathrooms?

Egads people, you're all overlooking the worst offenders of all: single parents!

What about all those perverted parents that are toting kids along on a shopping excursion and have the audacity to bring their toddler of an opposite gender into the bathroom with them rather than send them into the corresponding bathroom alone?!?

Why, just the other day some pervert of a father brought his little girl into the men's' room where I was making use of the facilities, proceeded directly to a stall, got her situated, shut the stall door, stood outside the door till she was done, washed her hands, and left immediately. Just think of all the penis she didn't see! Just think of the ass kicking somebody would've gotten had they decided to run over and wave their penis in her and her father's face! Think of how that penis waggling individual would have been escorted from the store in handcuffs by the po-po!

You're all ignoring the silent perverts among us.

*if the level of sarcasm here escapes you, drink more coffee.


Pure genius. I wish I have covered this in my OP.

My son took his $130 (for a $25 shovel job), and told him to "F-off weirdo" and left.


You entire post is pure genius, but this part was the absolute best. Thank you for raising your children well and for visiting my thread.

No, I don't think that. You make a very good point. In this society (United States of America) that type of behavior is generally unacceptable.

But there are alternatives, such as the one you mentioned. Or such as the one I mentioned... family, or coed, or unisex, or whatever you want to call them restroom or locker rooms.

Or you can do what is done on most college campuses in the US and all over most other continents every day.... unisex restrooms.

But defining yourself as "normal" because you want to pee in a restroom with people the same sex as you when millions (billions?) of people throughout the world are sharing restrooms with people of the opposite sex... now that is a problem.
