The media is a sly old dog. Tricked y'all into thinking you actually care who goes where. Did anyone really give a damn before all this hoohah?

There's always gonna be pervs working bathrooms sometime, somewhere. Was there once a time when public toilets were a 'safe' place? I'm doubtful.

The toilet issue isn't a trans thing, it's a crime thing and I reckon the media did a good job seizing on it to sow discord among your fine people.

That's my first and last take on the US 'toilet (non) issue'.

the only bathroom laws are trying to force people who look more like the sex they weren't born as into the bathroom of the sex they were born with.

it seems to me, that it would produce more hysteria over the issue of bathroom issue since you are gonna be having a bunch of people who really do appear to be men, going into women's bathroom if people obey the law instead of their sense of reason!

regardless of how anyone one of us feel about the gays, transgendered, ect... we have to at least accept the fact that there are people out there that look like something they aren't to the point that they will not be accepted as being what they were born as physically.
and as someone a post or two above your post points out, we cannot dismiss the idea that our neglect of our environment and resulting pollution just might be the cause to at least some of the problems that we are facing. in which case, the answer to the problem wouldn't be to treat those affected the way some seem to want to treat them, but rather address that which is causing the problem to begin with, the way we treat our environment!

Depends where you are. I've never seen anything like that at home and I live in one of the more densely populated cities.

Your comment serves well to point out how inconsequential your issue is, when the best comparison you can come up with is a 20p coin.

As a tourist in Yorkshire who had to pee mightily and who had NO coin it was very important to me.

Perhaps that hole out in the back by that oak tree would suit you better. Then you do not have to feel fear of someone that looks different in a room with you while you do your business?

Aren't you clever . . . NOT.

Well, there's the problem. In Yorkshire, the public toilet IS the tourist attraction. Of course you had to pay.

In all seriousness though, that isn't an issue at all. Find another toilet or a coin. Not all facilities are like that. In fact, few are. Usually only when they are a drain to maintain.

I can now see how this toilet thing has picked up so much momentum, if that is what qualifies as a social issue.

You seem to be saying that this idea is not smart? Well, I guess I got it from someone that didn't think it through all the way, or would be uncomfortable relieving themselves outside.

I see the fear mongering has been moved to another thread.


As have the excuses, denials and obfuscations.

Of course, there would be no "fear" mongering if there wasn't something to fear... but that, of course, is the point of all the excuses, denials and obfuscations.

From national and state/local-run groups whose only purpose for existence is to protect women from sexual violence? I don't think so.

Please. Shall I start posting some pics too?

Because we both know I could post some interesting pics as well... perhaps a big brute with stubble dressed in high heels and mini skirt... or maybe some big brawny men dressed in their dominatrix attire...

We both know that neither your pics nor mine represent all. I'm not pretending all transgender persons are a danger to others... but that you (and others) pretend that all transgenders are like the pics you posted tells me much.

As a normal heterosexual I've earned the right to pee comfortably and privately in the appropriate facility.

I think the more important question is .... what the hell is going on?

First of all we have been conditioned over the last few decades to think of all citizens of the world as one. Migration and immigration has diluted the race population in most of the worlds big cities. Now our basic thoughts of men are men and women are women are being diluted to think of ourselves as one.

Realistically, the way we have thought for centuries as having a "nationality" and a "gender" have changed dramatically over the last 50 years.

Why? what is the end game?

My question was/is what would you do to determine who is allowed to use the bathroom by looks.

We don't need to be redundant.

At age 70, I was a part of that world 50 years ago.

It was phony role playing.

I much prefer today and people being real. Realizing that Gender and Sexuality are not black and white.

Realizing that there is a whole world out there of variations, in gender/sexuality, religion, race/culture, etc.

We're no longer cloistered in our little protected man made fantasy lands.

I'm not quite sure what you're trying to say there, so I'm going with context and my apologies if I get it wrong... The bathroom laws are forcing men into women's bathrooms. Period. Not just transsexuals, who are actually going through the surgical process. Obama's directive forbids any means of confirming or qualifying which men/boys are actually transgender. Any and all men are now given carte blanche to women's bathrooms.

Unisex bathrooms.

Indeed. An ATS thread I wrote almost a year ago: It IS something in the water... And it hurts everyone

By all means we need to get the synthetic hormones and endocrine-disruptors out of our water supply. But that only helps going forward. It doesn't fix what's broken now.

And, of course, making people chemically dependent on these synthetic hormones for life isn't going to accomplish that. It only compounds the problem.

Because they can't be compromised, corrupted and/or wrong? Of course they can.

But I wasn't speaking of them...

how do the people so apposed to transgenders using their preferred toilets view dustin hoffman and robin williams?
both played regular trannies, not transgender, so are they an affront to your religion or political leanings?
or was tootsie and mrs doubtfire some subliminal messaging thing?

Why???

We already have a solution which has worked for decades.

Have a pecker, use the urinal(some genius invented urinals for those with peckers) and don't have a pecker, use the bathroom without urinals.

Bathrooms are based on one's sex, not gender and what they feel like on any given day.
