I don't know any transgenders, that I know of. If they've been in the Ladies with me I've never noticed.

I don't get the impression they'd be obvious. They seem more likely to be very private about it, the goal being to blend in.

From 2013:




The APA said in its statement that “‘sexual orientation’ is not a term used in the diagnostic criteria for pedophilic disorder and its use in the DSM-5 text discussion is an error and should read ‘sexual interest.’”

“In fact, APA considers pedophilic disorder a ‘paraphilia,’ not a ‘sexual orientation.’ This error will be corrected in the electronic version of DSM-5 and the next printing of the manual,” the organization said. The error appeared on page 698, said a spokeswoman.

It added: “APA stands firmly behind efforts to criminally prosecute those who sexually abuse and exploit children and adolescents. We also support continued efforts to develop treatments for those with pedophilic disorder with the goal of preventing future acts of abuse.”

I agree.

Sexual orientation is not the topic here.

Neither are paraphilias and pathologies.

I have ended the discussion on orientation in this thread.

If they open the other thread back up - - I'll meet you there.

Wouldn't you? I mean put yourself in their place.

Your brain says one thing, your body another. You want your body to match your brain. It's got to be very frustrating.

I'm an addict. My "brain tells me" to drink.

I've been sober for 24 years; I don't listen to my brain on this issue because my addiction is a PATHOLOGY.

EDIT: The topic here is a newspaper article lying about what another newspaper said.

In a larger sense, it's about equal rights ... for Americans with differing gender identities.

Further, it's about an effort by the political right-wing in this country to renew the attack on LGBT rights at large.

I'll make a deal with them. If they won't show me their peepee's, I won't show them mine. This argument is silly. When most of us go to the ladies room, we don't look at anybody. Get in and out as quickly as possible. That's what we do. Not go in trying to get a glimpse of anybody with their pants down. Ridiculous.

This is also true of most men's rooms.

I'd like to see these invasive "Pee Police" laws repealed so we can move on to something more substantial.

It's only ridiculous to Liberals and People who want to access to Children and the Vulnerable. Common Sense ya know what that means? Oh right you don't. I forgot. It doesn't exist in todays PC pushing world.

Well, it's past ridiculous to think the MAJORITY OF US would want this kind of CRAP for our families. Why don't you get over yourself and get your own damn public washrooms/shower rooms and leave us all the hell alone.

EXCUSE ME??? And just who do you think you are? The bathroom Nazi?

I don't know why I don't. Maybe for the same reason you are a rude, obnoxious, insulting person, who can't tolerate ideas and opinions that differ from your own petrified little psyche? AS I recall this is the first exchange I've ever had with you.
Your comments are inappropriate, hostile, and presumptuous.

This bull is allowing pedophiles to gain access to potential victims.
A little 9 year old was nearly murdered because a man attacked her
in the ladies bathroom because he can be there by these stupid laws.
To those with gender identity problems...
It is not my fault if your head isn't screwed on right and you have
problems with "gender" identity.


The INCIDENT you mention was in 2013. And the man was straight apparently.

Whoa! Woke up on the wrong side of the Universe did we?


EXCUTH ME, is that what i heard ? hahaha


Thanks needed a laugh.

And consequently you're sounding awfully Intollerant right now along with rude, obnoxious insulting, Hostile and indifferent to other peoples ideas opinions. So maybe you ought ta just turn that Obnoxious little finger around and point it into your own face rather than attacking me for having opinions contrary to your own just because you don't like it.

and maybe you need to relax your temperament, it's not like you're on a soap box at speakers corner dear.

You do know what projection is, I assume? Because you are describing yourself.

This is what you said to me

Do you see the projection now, in calling me out? Funny, huh?


Actually, I have been laughing. To be honest, that may be the only post of yours, I've ever read, and you shall heretofore always be known to me as the 'toilet Nazi".

Bye toilet Nazi! Don't sprinkle when you tinkle! lol!
