The Transgender Restrooom Issue, isn't a real issue

Updated on June 10, 2016

American Politics love wasting time.

This issue is roughly nine months old, and I'm not surprised that it's resurfaced. But about nine months ago, the Denizens of Houston Texas, shot down the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance, as the issue was over Transgendered people choosing the bathroom of their choice. The implication of the activists against transgendered bathroom has this looking like men are entering women's bathrooms and vice versa. And recently with a teenage boy in the Fort Worth,Texas area, identifying as a transgendered girl doing exactly that, and this case getting so much attention that it reached the White House. And as a result, similar laws allowing Transgendered bathrooms in South Dakota, North Carolina, and Massachusettes are being debated. I can't help but feel this rather excessive. And here's why...

I'm not heavily convinced that Transgendered people having their own bathrooms should be a thing. Mostly because of how the general transgendered person has already surgically altered themselves to their preferred gender. Recent examples are the Wachowski siblings and Caitlyn Jenner, as they went under the surgical knife in their late 40s/early 50s. Therefore the Trans-men have and do use the men's restrooms and transwomen use the women's restrooms. That being said, you gotta look at who made the argument:"Kids, second wave teenage Millennials" to be exact. And barring the fact that they're part of the current generational punching bag, (of which I'm ashamed to be the first wave of) what do teenagers usually want? The answer is:"Instant gratification." They don't wanna feel important ten years from now, much less three years from now. No, they wanna feel important "NOW!" And political activism is the quickest way to do it. These kids wanna look back on their lives when they're old and gray and say:"I did something important with my life." They could join the military or the fields of Law Enforcement, Firefighting, or medical, but they're not mentally capable of such things. So instead of choosing a profession that requires effort and dedication, they choose something quick and easy.

And they're not being told to wait, because kids this heavily ruled by their emotions are easy to control, which, given how American politics work, especially in this election environment, is a plus.

      Here's the latest lawsuit brought against a school district by a group of girls who were forced to undress and shower with a boy in the locker room.

      "The transgender student, only identified as “Student X” in the complaint, would allegedly dance to lewd music while in the locker room, including by “twerking, grinding, and lifting up his skirt to reveal his underwear” in front of high school girls.

      "He is also accused of following two female students seeking privacy in a secondary locker room and disrobing in front of them.

      "Student X also allegedly questioned one female student about her bra size and then asked her to “trade body parts” with him."

      The boy obviously wanted to do more than "just pee." Girls should not have to shower and undress with males. This is sexual abuse.

      Jenner has not had genital surgery, just breast implants and facial surgeries. I can't find any definitive info on Chaz Bono, but it appears Bono has not had genital surgery, either.

      Cost is not the only reason trans people don't get genital surgery. Many females do not get genital surgery because the procedure requires several grueling surgeries and a long recovery time. Additionally, phalloplasty results are considered by many to be less than satisfactory.

      As far as males go, the older ones who suddenly "come out" after marriage, children and a successful career, like Jenner, are often autogynephiles who need to keep their "family jewels" for sexual pleasure.

      This is a deep, dark rabbit hole you are going down. I am only brushing the surface with my comments. Transactivists likes to position the trans cause as just like the LGB cause, and often compare the bathroom issue to racial segregation. IMHO trans is very different than LGB rights and racial equality. For one thing, sex segregation is not illegal. LGB people just want to love and marry who they want. But trans people want us to play along with their belief that men can be women. The government cannot force me to believe that which is not true, and it is a scientific fact that men cannot become women.

      I do believe that trans people should receive protections under the law which prevent them from being discriminated against regarding housing and jobs, etc. However, men are not women and should not be given free, unrestricted access to areas which have been reserved for women's safety, modesty, dignity and privacy, nor should men be allowed to take women's places in sports, women's scholarships, jobs earmarked for women, women's housing and healthcare, etc.

      Surgical procedures of any kind are not required for a person to be considered legally transgender. Any man can claim to be a woman, and any woman can claim to be a man -- the claim is all that is needed in the eyes of the law. Google "Danielle Muscato" and you will find a balding man with a beard, dressed in a business suit -- yet this person is a "woman" simply because he says he is. This man has complete legal to access to not only women's bathrooms, but women's dressing rooms, locker rooms, women's shelters, hospital rooms, etc.

      Only about 15% of trans people get genital surgery.
