it is my opinion that the " bathroom issue " has truely ` jumped teh shark `
ATS contributers are now dragging up tails from 3 years ago as ` evidence `
which is really just shooting thier entire case in the foot
there have ALWAYS been miscreants in bathrooms - of one stripe or another .
SO - please stop pretending that any clarification of transgendered rights is going to lead to anything more serious than transgendered people going to the toilet
as this current farce - however it ends is not actually going to increase or deacrese any REAL risk of any actual harm befalling people in toilets
i can dredge up annecdotes too - mine going back to the early 80s
mine involves male drug dealers frequenting the male toilets of the city centre of a large town in the UK , but the problem did concern parents - who would be loathe to allow thier male children to use certain toilets unaccompanied .
i has no reccolection of any similar problems in female tolets in the same area // timeframe
no sexual assaults were reported - but violent altracations were common .
if you want to be oposed to transgendered rights - go ahead and froth , but dont claim that its going to bring doom to the tolets

I can remember in the 80s/90s when public toilets had holes carved in the partitions by perverts. On the rare occasions of needing to use them, it'd be fairly common practice to block up any holes with tissue paper. We had a family holiday to Disney in Florida and it was the same there - early 90s.
Predators and voyeurs looking at kids and/or men.

you take a really deep look at global markets, why they are acting as they are, and how this will affect the people of the US (and nosey people too) when everything comes to fruition. All the while we are arguing about genitalia!

They tended to only be found in public bathrooms where there was a recognised gay cruising scene going on, so I'm very very surprised you found one at Disney. You'd think anybody who cut a hole in a Disney cubicle would be escorted out and the cleaners would find it within 24 hours and have it repaired.
Those are called 'gloryholes', and they were popular in the gay male community back in the day as a way of getting anonymous sex. They weren't for peeking through to be a voyeur, they were for putting your penis through so that your agreed anonymous partner in the next cubicle could provide oral sex.

You mean like the impact banning guns would have had on situations like Sandy Hook where 20 6-7 year old innocent children got shot and killed? How many little kids have to get shot before we realize we should pass more laws against guns?
