Logic does not dictate this issue. Emotions run too many people who have way too much spare time.

We have too many emotional people who are concerned that someone who makes the decision to go from a he to a she. That is their choice, and if that means using their head when using the restroom that they look like, then use your head.

2 years ago, men dressed as women and women dressed as men used bathrooms they felt most comfortable with.

And no one batted an eye.

Why can't that just continue??

Are trans a demo now?


Why wouldn't they be? A demographic is just a classification of people. "People with freckles" is also a demographic.

No.

They are saying they will refuse to operate if the government makes a certain move. They are making threats to influence policy.

Does the NFL have a policy now of allowing transgenders to just go wherever they want at all of their stadiums? No. So this is not a move being made because it violates any policy. Heck, does the NFL accommodate transgender football players? No. So that doesn't apply either because the locker rooms aren't open for transitioning people to use.

This would be different if say ... Target which has an open policy of open bathrooms and changing rooms were to say they were going to close down all their stores. But do you notice what Target isn't doing?



Exactly. NFL has no policy. Meaning legal women and legal men are able to use the proper bathroom. This bill, however enacts a policy, however, and would make several legally female women use the men's room and vice-versa. This bill has nothing to do with keeping creepy crossdressers out of the girl's rooms.

How would or could a women using the womens room be a problem?


It's a problem when there is a bill telling them they can't.

Here's the thing and where it's all gone screwy. The Constitution was meant to protect the minority from the tyranny of the majority.


But this law doesn't protect anybody. It is not evidence based.

Instead, you are harming the minority with the tyranny of the majority.

That's the name of the game these days. Sadly.

So basically the NFL, which has no policy, is making threat to influence policy. It is none of their business because they have no stated reason to care. It conflicts with nothing in their business practices.

Target, on the other hand, DOES have a policy that would conflict. They DO have a reason to care. One wonders why they don't protest. Maybe it's because their own open policy cost them millions in sales.

Some thing were better not seen and not heard, but the activists were too smart for the rest of us. Right?

why is it considered discrimination to tell a transgender what bathroom to use but it`s not considered discrimination to tell non transgender people what bathroom to use?

The NFL is saying that transgender people will feel unwelcome in a stadium if they aren`t allowed to decide which bathroom to use but non transgender people aren`t allowed to decide which bathroom to use and it doesn`t seem to make them feel unwelcomed in a stadium.

The excuse that the NFL is using makes absolutely no sense.

if which bathroom you use to take a crap in makes you feel unwelcome then you have much bigger problems that what bathroom you take a crap in.

No, they are refusing to allow their policy to be made for them.

Because people keep trying to regulate things that don't need regulation.

but the NFL doesn`t own the stadiums, so exactly what is their policy when it comes to regular season games?

The NFL only mentioned the superbowl so we can assume that their policy, whatever it is, has no effect on regular season games played in Texas.

It seems that the NFL doesn`t mind discrimination during regular season games but won`t tolerate it for the superbowl.
not a very rigid policy in fact you can`t even call it a policy.

It seems that the NFL is only willing to stand up for their "policy" when it doesn`t affect their pocketbook otherwise they would forbid all NFL teams from playing regular season games in Texas.

This law i stupid and the majority are not backward thinking idiots, so stop claiming your narrow minded views are the majority.

How many years have transgender being using whatever bathrooms but now it is an issue? All of a sudden they are a threat to young children? What about the hetero pervs, what are your plans for them?

I'm not actually sure that I'd have been totally comfortable with him in the bathroom with my son either, but it would sure make for interesting conversation once the youngster came out and asked "what did I just see in there?" 🤔

If people just used the bathroom of the gender they look the most like (while also identifying as such gender), there'd be far less drama.
Too many of the transgendered women look even more feminine than I do, so if they used to be men under there, I don't care.

As they did in North Carolina, I'm sure the NBA will weigh in on this soon.

The NFL aren't the only ones:

With SB6, Texas could lose 2017 Women’s Final Four and 2018 Men’s Final Four

Texas tourism experts slam bathroom bill SB6

Tourism & Convention Leaders Gather In Austin, Warn Of SB6’s Dire Economic Consequences

Patrick Determined to Waste Taxpayer Time, Money On ‘SB6’ Bathroom Bill

Business, tourism groups join in fight against Texas’ ‘bathroom bill’

NASW Texax Comes Out Against SB6


According to the largest national transgender survey to date (N=27,715), 59% of transgender people avoid public restrooms at work, school and other areas due to fear of confrontation. In addition, 31% of transgender people forgo drinking or eating in efforts to avoid restroom use. Barriers to restroom access lead the majority of transgender people (54%) to experience damaging health outcomes such as dehydration, kidney infection, and urinary tract infections. Some (10%) even experience adverse educational outcomes such as absences and dropping out of school due to lack of access to public accommodations matching their gender identity. Finally, denial of access to restrooms in accordance with gender identity is known to be significantly associated with detrimental mental health outcomes such as suicidality among transgender persons.

Why Texas' SB 6 Is An Unjust Law

AREN'T THERE MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO WORRY ABOUT?

I liked South Parks solution.

Normal people who don't care about oppressing others can all use the normal public restrooms, either one,


and people that are in constant fear of being raped and sexual assault can have their own third bathrooms that are monitored.(The Sissy room)

Someone who stated this "The Constitution was meant to protect the minority from the tyranny of the majority.". oops.

I am betting that the majority of people who want this kind of bill are backwards thinking buffoons while the transgenders are the minority, so wouldn't this bill be against the constitution?
