Yes , why are they pushing so hard to used woman restroom this will do more harm than good i agree
You may have had some bad experiences, but in my experience, people who undergo the transgender ordeal are not "weird" men who wish to glimpse women going potty...this whole topic could be removed from public discussion...build unisex bathrooms. easy
Accommodations that are not rights?
Equal protection clause. 14th Amendment. Google it.
Oh and I'm pretty sure the mentally ill are still US citizens, so...
It is not just bathrooms. It is showers, locker rooms, girls' dorms.
I agree, Tamara. Men are men, no matter what medicine they take or what surgeries they've had, no matter the clothes they wear or their hair length. It is not discriminatory to require men to use men's bathrooms. Sex segregation is not illegal.
@ Smartandfun. You're kinda missing the point. Transgender are not men turning into women...transition is about the mind being female and wishing to be able to identify with the body the brain is in. Transgender is not a man turning into a woman ...
That's right, they are men. They can use the men's room, or they can lobby for their own facilities. For every study attempting to prove "brain sex," there are more that disprove it. Women should not have to undress or shower with men.
You're allowed to hate whoever you want as intensely and ignorantly as you want. But in America, you don't get to use public policy to discriminate against minorities just bc you get the willies.
Justin Earick, you're putting words in my mouth. I don't hate anyone. I simply don't want to shower with, bunk with or undress in front of men. This goes for ALL MEN other than myhusband. It's not discrimination, not hate, not bigotry, not ignorance.
Bathroom fear-mongering is the same tired nonsense bigots pushed against gays before. Lazy, recycled, and completely contrived. And when you disrepectfully and purposely use inappropriate pronouns, you are screaming I HATE THEM!
No screaming here. No hate, either - just scientific fact. Males are males regardless of clothing or cosmetic surgeries. Trans males should lobby for their own facilities or safer mens rooms. They're not women. Plz leave women out of this male issue.
Just becuz you don't think you're ignorant or uninformed...it doesn't mean you aren't ignorant or uninformed...it simply means you don't know the facts and are likely in a state of denial. You can wish all you want...but if one is ignorant...one is.
It's men who wish to be women who are doing the wishing. It's men who deny being men who are in denial. It's not hatred or bigotry to accept scientific fact over wishes. It's not bigotry when women don't want to shower with & undress in front of
Again, you can be as ignorant and consumed with hatred as you wish - but you don't get to codify your personal prejudices and bigoted views into public policy. Not in America. Maybe try Saudi Arabia...
I'm simply stating a scientific fact. I do not have to play along with the incorrect belief that men can be women. You can insist that 2+2=5 if you like, but the rest of us do not have to humor you. Accepting science is not bigotry or hatred.
I agree with you , i think its insane how they are pushing to used same restroom as woman ,
Nailed it, Justin...right in the coffin. Well done!
And the homosexuals who threatened to burn down my son's private school for declining admission to a lesbian's daughter were all acting out of love?
I am an atheist and a woman. I do not want to undress in front of men or shower with men at the gym. If I ever find myself at a woman's shelter, I do not want to bunk with a man. So I am a bigot?
Yes. If you insist upon using disrespectful pronouns, insist on portraying them as predators, and insist upon discriminatory policy so you feel more comfortable - then the answer is pretty obvious.
I am portraying no one as a predator. I simply do not want to undress in front of a man or shower with a man other than my husband. This is called modesty & privacy. It is not discrimination to require men to use men's facilities.
You want discriminatory public policy against a minority group so you can feel more comfortable. Pretty much the difinition of bigotry. Without even religion to justify your prejudice. Nothing but ignorance-fueled hatred.
It is not discrimination to require men to use men's facilities, or for women to want privacy and modesty when undressed. What I see here is men telling a woman she is a bigot if she doesn't want to get naked in front of male strangers. Nice.
Yet, you don't understand that Transwomen are women - so by intentionally calling them men, u r displaying bigoted behaviour. May I suggest using a stall in changing or rest room? I think many transfolk wld use stalls anyway, so wouldn't c u regrdls
I have nothing against trans males but they are males. There's no way to change male to female. Not all women's facilities have stalls. Women who don't want to shower with or undress in front of males are not hateful bigots. Science is not bigotry.
transmen are male (born female) trans women are women. They may have been assigned the other gender at birth, but their brain is that of their gender identity - science has proven that. Intentional misgendering is bigotry.
Science has not proven that. The brain is not a sexually dimorphic organ. There is no distinct "ladybrain" or "manbrain," though "ladybrain" is the narrative transactivists tell us we must believe. I have nothing against trans but they are not women.
The brain of a trans woman behaves in the same way the brain of a cisgender woman does. recent medical doc featured small piece on it. Pee + change in a stall. Most trans do anyway.
It is far from proven. For every study showing "gendered brains" or "sexed brains" there are more which show the opposite. Not all facilities have stalls. What about women's shelters? Open showers? College dorms? Camp cabins? Males are not women.
Opinions are not the law of the land...we have a right to one or two or three, but when it comes to constitutional rights...the Right/Republicans are trying to ram something down a tiny minority's throat--and that is simply Un-American. Change!
It's 1% - and 70mil people in the world who r trans. The whole thing abt HB2 is that it's hiding the rest of the disgusting bill - stripping discrimination protections for LGBT in housing, employment + health. Relying on trans fuss to hide the rest.
Jacqui I agree that HB2 is a bad one & discrimination protections for health, housing, employment are important for LGBT. But the "men are women" part is ridiculous. Women should not be made to bunk, shower or undress with men. It's abusive to wo
