"Talk about a war against women!"
This is the most ignorant argument to date I have heard about this "war." Really, ladies, can we save it for the real issues?
There is a new so-called "Bathroom Bill" in Arizona that will allow transgenders and cross-dressers access to public restrooms of the opposite sex. And apparently this is going to be the downfall of America.. Because all transgenders and cross-dressers are pervs, rapists and pedophiles.
Women are suddenly going to be afraid to enter into a bathroom because (gasp!!) someone they aren't comfortable with just might follow them in. Now children are unsafe. The whole world is (no pun intended) going to shit.
I was told on Facebook, "I bet the world that you are in a park, go in the empty bathroom, and 6 foot tall cross dresser follows you in, you cry like a baby. Be as tough as you appear, and admit I am right." Sorry, but I call bs on that one. Here's what I'm afraid of: some mom who can't cut the apron strings brings her school-aged son into the womens' room, where he then pops his head under the stall and sees things he oughtn't, and suddenly I'm a sex offender just because I had to pee. And yes, kids have done it. It's insane. But when I posed a question to all the moms I knew asking what was an appropriate age to let a child go into a restroom alone, the answers were varied but with the same theme - there are too many pedophiles out there. What we should be doing is empowering our kids, teaching them to be smart, and observant. To speak out when something seems wrong or out of place.
But now, women are being disparaged because the bathrooms are being invaded.
Ignorance is the downfall of this country, more so than anything else. "Now anybody who wants to wear women’s clothing will not be prohibited from entering into the girls/women’s bathrooms of our schools, parks and restaurants as well as our place of worship and any other public places in the name of prohibiting discrimination, tolerance and of course let’s not forget the mighty dollar in that forward thinking America." I love how this Suzanne Sharer made sure to get the Bible thrown in there. Have to enforce the moral compass.
Unless I missed it, men's bathrooms are not going to remain "men only." Therefore, how is this a new battle against the fairer sex? Someone please, give me a rational, realistic answer. Not one pumped up with worship and estrogen. Tell me that a rapist can't just waltz into any bathroom of their choosing at any time and strike. Tell me that women aren't having sex with underaged children, enjoying peep shows on the internet and likely in their neighbors' windows too, watching porn and attacking men in very violent ways.
Has anyone stopped to think of the treatment these people receive by using the restrooms designated to them? How safe is it for a man dressed as a woman to enter a men's room? How often are transgenders and cross-dressers of both genders beaten severely or fatally simply for existing?
The world is what it is but if being afraid of someone who looks different from you is your biggest fear, you need a priority check. And why is it men are constantly the big bad bully of every crime in this country? When are they going to stop taking the beatings we women and our politicians rain down on them?
I say if you don't like it, hold it. Get a kidney infection because a guy decided to wear a dress today.
