RE: Some transphobic rant

Must parents now worry about some creeper peeking over the stalls just because he says he’s feeling like a woman today? According to that defender of liberalism The Huffington Post, Americans aged 18 to 29 favor letting transgender people use the restroom of their identity by a 2-to-1 ratio. Additionally, according to The Huffington Post […]

“If a guy identifies as a man on Monday, does that mean he can identify as a woman on Tuesday?”

Do you think that’s how it works for people? That they’re not worried about harassment if they don’t look exactly like a woman in public? Transgender women are killed over merely going out in public.

“Our children should not have to face a member of the opposite sex while they’re using a public restroom, no matter what age they are”

Except they aren’t. They’re using separate, walled stalls in which they can’t face each other, like all public commodes.

“Does this make me a homophobe? I don’t see how. This has nothing to do with homosexuality”

Of course it doesn’t. This isn’t about sexual orientation (“who you go to bed with”), but about gender identity (“who you go to bed as”). Get it right.

“And if you’re among the infinitesimal number of people in the country who identify as transgender—get over it. If you have a penis, use the Men’s room. If you don’t, use the Ladies’.”

How about you get over it? Sex segregation of bathrooms only began in the 1870s in Massachusetts because female workers were not allowed to use workplace bathrooms. Now over 140 years later and you violently rage and threaten against de-segregating bathrooms?
