Transgender / Public Law
Women’s race for equality among the sexes took another blow
as men in certain states across the nation are allowed indiscriminate access to
women’s public restrooms and locker rooms. This division between the sexes is
not only about safety from abuse, rape, and molestation; the division allows
for sanitary conditions because women have menstrual cycles and become pregnant
I guess facts are considered discrimination and bigotry as I
have been called numerous untrue adjectives so that transgender men and women
can claim a moral high ground that these individuals do not have.
I am liberal. I am not religious. I believe in equality. I
also believe in common sense. To that end, I am persuaded if you have a good,
coherent, logical, and factual argument.
I have not seen anything but overemotional people who sling
mud and throw tantrums over the transgender public restroom issue.
It is time to put the boycotts away and for people to grow
the hell up. We have a social contract exhibited as agreed upon boundaries in
our society. Full grown men in women’s bathrooms or locker rooms is one of
those prohibited forays unless there is an emergency or some other unforeseen
If you are a man and feel like you are really a woman, then
you need medical and mental help because there are only two sexes in the genus Homo sapiens sapiens

diverse conditions connected to being born with medically determinable sexual
and genetic issues as well as defining the difference between intersex
individuals against that of transsexuals and transgenders.
Transgender individuals base their gender on how they feel. That
is not how gender is determined in the human species. XX and XY are how females
and males are denoted. Feelings are psychological.
Every human is faced with challenges in their lives. Coping
with gender identity issues is one of these areas. Unfortunately we have out of
control social justice, psychological, medical, and pharmacological
institutions in our nation that feed individuals with fantasies of becoming
someone else, something else altogether.
We see these body dysmorphic delusions played out on the
small scale with botox and breast implants. On a larger stage, men and women
with psychological disturbances are not being treated for their emotional,
cognitive, and nutritional issues, but instead are paraded around as a
protected minority group called transgenders.
Johns Hopkins Psychiatrist: Transgender is ‘Mental Disorder;' Sex Change ‘Biologically Impossible’ and he would be correct.
“’Sex change’ is biologically impossible,” said McHugh.
“People who undergo sex-reassignment surgery do not change from men to women or
vice versa. Rather, they become feminized men or masculinized women. Claiming
that this is civil-rights matter and encouraging surgical intervention is in
reality to collaborate with and promote a mental disorder.”
When you look into how transgender men and women are treated
by the medical community is the real discrimination. Instead of correcting the
imbalances, transgender individuals are convinced only gender reassignment
surgery is the answer. How much money does a person waste with pharmaceuticals,
surgery, doctor’s visits, psychologist and psychiatric appointments over a
Follow the money and discover the truth.
On the legal front, transgender people are not being
discriminated against when it comes to public restroom usage. If transgender individuals were not allowed
to use public restrooms at all, I would stand up and say that is discrimination.
With my chronic health condition, I am discriminated against
because Environmental Illness is treated in a manner that is inconsistent with
heavy pharmaceutical use and therefore the prevailing medical mindset is that
Environmental Illness must be a mental condition, when it is not. So I am the
first person to stand up when discrimination is evident.
Men wearing women’s clothes do not bother me. Look up
costume history. That is the apparel men and women have worn since the advent
of fashion. Men were the first to wear dresses, leggings, pumps, jewelry, and
yes, even cosmetics. If you have a problem with the old attire being new again,
well some men are just regressive that way.
With laws like in North
Carolina, even though I do not agree with everything
outlined in the law, the public restroom issue is not about discrimination against
people with a form of body dysmorphic disorder
For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
That fact is true in physics as well as public discourse when people have taken
their social justice too far and trample other people’s rights.
What has happened is people want to protect the most
vulnerable in society by reiterating our agreed upon social norms and mores. If
you have a penis, you use the men’s restroom. If you have a vagina, you use the
women’s restroom. Simple, right?
The LGBT community sees that declaration of such obvious
information as blatant discrimination, but it is not.
In fact until a man has surgery to change him into a
biologically accurate representation of a women, vagina and all, he should not
be allowed to use the women’s restroom legally or otherwise.
Point of fact, rape and molestation victims have rights too.
Women and girls who have been sexually abused may not want to have a man in
such a small, enclosed, and unsecured room away from prying eyes. I know I
Another fact, men are slobs. I have been a custodian in an
office with men’s and women’s restrooms as well as cleaned private homes. Men
leave the seat up. Men urinate on the seat, down the sides of the toilet bowl,
and on the floor.
As a woman who has a menstrual cycle, I do not want to be in
a public restroom having to deal with the above unsanitary conditions. Do you?
It is difficult enough to find public restrooms with a place to hang your
purse. Think on that visualization.
Now I have had conversations with transgender men via social
media and the excuse for invading my private space is that a transgender male
has never raped a woman.
Really? How long has statistics been kept on this group and
that particular situation? The fact is that transgender man’s argument is not
an entirely truthful statement.
The prison system has transgender individuals incarcerated
for crimes against society. The Federal Bureau of Prisons cites these
statistics of male and female prisoners: Gender
, (notice there are no statistics on
transgender individuals so how would one find numbers on rapes?)
Tranequality's numbers say:
Nearly one in six transgender people (16%) (including 21% of
transgender women) have been incarcerated at some point in their lives—far
higher than the rate for the general population.
In reality, transgender individuals have an increased chance
of breaking the law. Time will tell what transpires in the women’s restrooms
and how women are respected in such a confined, intimate space.
Oh wait, it already has:
College Allows Transgender Man to Expose Himself to Young Girls:
“Little girls should not be exposed to naked men, period,”
said David Hacker, senior legal counsel with the Alliance Defending Freedom. A
group of concerned parents contacted the legal firm for help.

. A Washington
state man went in and out of a girl’s restroom twice, the second time while
little girls were changing into their swimsuits for practice. The employees
could do nothing to protect the children because of the intrusive and socially
unjust law against women.
It’s not like all men are honorable examples of the other
half of the species:
These reports start from 1997 and the list continues without
end online detailing how certain adult human males are sexual predators to the
females of the species.
What do women possibly have to be concerned about? Maybe history, facts, and reality.
If the LGBT community respected other people’s rights, especially
women’s rights to privacy and safety, then demanding rectification for an
imagined injustice would not happen let alone be the reason for boycotts, name calling, or other ignorant outbursts.
Women have fought beside the gay and lesbian community in
the LGBT’s pursuit of equal rights, marriage rights, and the right to adopt
children. Instead of that community knowing healthy boundaries and the difference
between right and wrong, women’s rights are being intruded upon instead by
these same people who throw tantrums about their legal rights. Isn’t time for
some people to show the rest of us the respect we deserve?
In 2012, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) removed
transgender from the list of mental health issues plaguing humans. Sounds like
this organization needs to be sued on behalf of transgender individuals who are
now not receiving the mental health care they need and the rest of us for being
terrorized by the political correctness that changed their precious diagnostic
Why would the APA do such an irresponsible act? Follow the
How much money will the doctors, lawyers, and court system
make forcing others to accept a discounted mental health condition as a
minority group with fake rights and demands? How about the politicians and non
profit organizations. How much will each of those individuals receive in
donations and funding?
To me, the transgender issue comes down to a few points:
creating division among voters for political gain, ignoring a serious mental
health issue to produce lifelong medical and pharmaceutical customers, inciting
social unrest, and allowing the sexual deviants and predators of our society
access to little girls.
All of which are becoming to the forefront of media fodder.
For a man, even a transgender, to push himself onto a
woman be it sexually, physically, or legally, is rape. Emotional and mental
rape occurs, but make no mistake: it is still rape.
So going back to the earlier transgender man’s argument that
“no transgender man has ever raped a woman…” Well, you just did.
Let the hate comments begin…
