A leading North Carolina newspaper issued an editorial last week telling girls to attempt “overcoming discomfort” at the sight of “male genitalia,” should transgender bathroom laws be enacted.
In a defense of President Obama’s order compelling schools to allow access to restrooms on the basis of gender identity, the Charlotte Observer editorial board compared the discomfort of school-aged girls seeing male genitalia in locker rooms to the discomfort of white people being around black people in post-segregation America.
What a ridiculous analogy! It's illegal for a man to show his genitalia in public, in general. You can't walk the streets of a city with your genitalia hanging out; that's called indecent exposure. Black people were always able to walk the streets except for some exclusions that were a consequence of pathetic bigots. So the discomfort was completely a construct of bigots - the discomfort was their own fault!
Girls are not generally bigoted or otherwise sick and pathetic. We can assume most of them are normal and are grossed out by the sight of men's parts in public. That's a normal reaction not a bigoted construct - the discomfort is not their fault but the fault of the man in women's clothing.
“This is what the Obama administration nudged the rest of the country toward Friday,” the editorial said. “Yes, the thought of male genitalia in girls’ locker rooms — and vice versa — might be distressing to some. But the battle for equality has always been in part about overcoming discomfort — with blacks sharing facilities, with gays sharing marriage — then realizing it was not nearly so awful as some people imagined.”
It is as awful as some people imagine. It's dirty, disgusting and abusive. Transgenderism is a mental illness akin to anorexia nervosa. It is called gender dysphoria and should be treated as a mental disorder not encouraged. 80% of people who experience gender dysphoria turn to accept their biological sex. Of those who don't, they are 20 times more likely to attempt suicide. It is morally reprehensible to encourage transgenders to accept their mental illness as normal. And it is literally criminal for the government to force normal women and children to be exposed to them.
While admitting that exposure to male genitalia is a possible outcome of transgender bathroom laws, the editorial said the notion that such laws constitute a threat to the privacy and safety of women and children is a “political fiction” pushed by Republicans.
Talk about compartmentalizing your thoughts. Exposure to male genitalia is not a threat to girl's privacy? Sharing swimming pool showers with a man is not a threat to the privacy of women and girls. How utterly stupid!
“Those safety issues are political fiction — non-transgender men wouldn’t have been allowed in women’s bathrooms under the Charlotte ordinance that HB 2 killed, and the 200 or so cities with similar ordinances have had no incidents involving bathroom predators,” the editorial said.
Absolute lies! Here are nine cities with nine perverts who dressed as women to get into girl's bathrooms or locker rooms. This fellow is one of them. Read his story here.
President Obama issued a legally nonbinding order on Friday compelling schools to allow bathroom access on the basis of gender identity, or risk losing federal education funding. Several states have promised to oppose the decree.
The U.S. Department of Justice has sued the state of North Carolina over a law regulating public restroom access on the basis of biological sex.
The world is going stark raving mad and Canada and the US are leading the way. God help us.
