No, separate restrooms for transgender people IS discrimination. They either go to the men's room or they go to the women's room.

It's not discrimination.
It's merely an act of protecting our children from possible traumatic experience.

Like I've said before, I don't give a rat about TG people, or any other kind of special people. I just refuse to be forced to accept things that are unacceptable. And somehow if you refuse to accept it, it's called discrimination.

That's why they call us bigots, because we still have a moral compass and common sense.

Absolutely not even close to an accurate comparison.


No kidding 'black's were actually BORN that way.

People can't change the color of their skin, and create a new 'race'.

Well there was one Michael Jackson but that's not a very good example.

Between the pedophilia, and Jesus Juice.

Now that you mentioned pedophilia. The way this modern world is evolving, I honestly wouldn't be surprised if in the next 50 years, people fight for the rights of pedophills. I mean, it's not their fault, they are just born that way? You don't want to give them rights? Discrimination! You old fashioned fart! It's the modern era.
Right?

Neither are planes, trains or automobiles. And you don't see guns in nature either. Not natural!


Planes fly in the sky, not swim in the sea.
Trains ride on tracks, not the freeway.
Automobiles are not bicycles.
Guns have restrictions on where they can be used.


Still not found in nature. We must eliminate them because they are not natural.

Here's the thing. The brain is a fascinating organ, and still a mystery as to how it all works. We know that sometimes the wiring can get messed up. That's a fact. Logic.

Some people have brains where the wiring connected to gender identity doesn't match the physical body. Those brains work just fine in every other way. People with gender dysphoria are perfectly capable of holding down jobs, raising children and living normal lives in every other way. A person who tries to live like a dog, however, is unable to function properly in a human society. So your analogy is a logic fail.



Yep and this Gender Dysphoria is nothing but messed up wires, just like schizophrenia


There is no drug that will solve gender dysphoria. You can't talk it away with therapy. You can't medicate it away. You can't pray it away. All those things have been tried and failed. This is different than something like schizophrenia.

Children will only be traumatized if you teach them to be traumatized.

The laws are changing to protect the transgender population. If it has to go all the way to the Supreme Court, trust me, it will go the same way marriage equality went. Y'all better just get used to it.

Ohh and how would you know??? You are an apparent at least partially heterosexual female (being as you reproduced) so, what would you KNOW about it? Ahh not a damned thing! At least be honest, you are only taking that side because thats the PC thing to do. Have you not noticed that the majority of society being forced to listen to this drivel in the first place is what started this?

I love the OP’s rational tone. His or hers inquisitive questioning rather than dogma of belief.

This is a Solomonic problem that won’t be easily solved one way or the other.


This is an issue of a degree of complexity that defines the conundrums of life

Let's try to add a little perspective. This issue is a lot more complicated and nuanced than people are giving it credit for.

If you were the parent of a transgender child, how would you want them to be treated and where would you expect them to pee? Does anybody even care this issue got started and at the core is about transgender kids in school?

Here's a couple of those monstrosities. The first one is a 15 year old high school girl and the other a 13 year old 8th grader. Both seem a lot smarter and more mature than some of the people posting here.

Think of the children! (Sorry, couldn't help but turn that around)

So, basically, even though this hilariously stupid practice( i don't know how to call it ) has support of minority of people, it will become law, because if not, then it's discrimination? Not to mention it's not a natural thing.

Democracy at it's best.

If I were anyone important, I would propose a referendum where the people could decide. Do you want to share bathrooms with males who are females and vice versa? Ridiculous.

Simple, as a minor in MY home, you are what you are until you move your butt out, then it ain't my problem. They would still be my kid, but be damned if I am paying for that hack job out of my pocket.

yes thanks for posting those...there are some REALLY ignorant posts in this thread where it is obvious they have not an ounce of understanding about or knowledge about transgenders.., and how many are passing this ignorance ,fears, and misinformation onto their children???

ignorance breeds fear, and hysteria .......educate yourselves on the subject
