    Why people obsessed with bathrooms and gender?

    Usually babies with birth defects were killed. By 374 AD infanticide was illegal in Rome, but offenders were rarely ever prosecuted.  Isn't people obsessed with bathrooms and gender just PC prejudice? Imagine talking or meeting this person at the store. Would you rudely stare? Or would you be polite and treat this person like any other stranger at your neighborhood store? What kind of person would intrude the privacy of others? Fear? Maybe if read a story of one person would invoke empathy     ...   http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-36092431

    Humankind is uncomfortable with that are deemed unfamiliar, outside the so-called norm, & uncertainty.  People welcome, even love the familiar.  The familiar makes people comfortable, safe, & relaxed.  The familiar makes people sure.  People want to associate w/others who are like them.  Also, people love defined boundaries.

    On that subject, people are comfortable w/defined, delineated gender boundaries.  With such defined, delineated gender boundaries, such has a place.  The gender lines in such minds are clear & succinct.  However, people are very uncomfortable when gender lines & roles are blurred.  That is why many people get into histrionics regarding the issue of homosexuality, androgyny,  & transgenderism.  Such categories are viewed as outside the norm for many people hence they become quite unnerved at the issue of so-called blurred sexual identities. 

    What they don't acknowledge that humankind is naturally bisexual but because of familial, religious, & societal inculcations, must suppress their inclinations to conform to the prevailing familial, religious, & societal construct.  The same w/homosexuality, androgyny, & transgenderism, such are a normal part of the human condition but because of familial, religious, & societal dictates, these factions of human sexuality has been ostracized, even demonized & marginalized.

    People want things that they can easily defined & delineated.  This is elementary consciousness & thinking.  The thought of people being outside defined sexual boundaries is beyond perplexing to such elementary minds.  Evolved, mature people know that there are people are beyond rigid societal definitions of what gender is.  This is the 21st century when gender lines are being constantly blurred & the age of strictly defined gender in its functions & roles are becoming outmoded.

      Thnx 4 answer: A big part of it is language itself. Naming inanimate objects as female/male, something English doesn't do thanks to the Vikings pidgen English, but still need a gender neutral pronoun. Xe instead of he/she perhaps,

    Please read Camille Paglia's articles on this topic. The liberal desire to see the world as they wish it to be instead of as it really is, is encapsulated in "let's cater to the crazy person's delusion, everyone else's privacy rights be darned".

    People are involved in it because the lgbt forced it as a public issue. Meeting someone in a restroom is different than any other place.

    The lgbt is always trying to put a square peg in a round hole, and they call that equality.

      The GOP forced the issue on an election year to distract voters from important problems like the economy.
