OgreMagi: Rapmaster2000: OgreMagi: EvilEgg: I'm ok with not having to deal with women in the bathroom. From what I hear from the people who clean them women are gross.

My job in the summer between graduating high school and going to college was in a gas station/convenience store.  Included in my duties was cleaning the bathroom.  The men's room tended to have a lot of paper towels on the floor.  On a rare occasion someone might have puked with bad aim.  The women's bathroom, however, was farking gross every damn time.  Bloody tampons thrown against the wall and on the floor was the usual expectation.  This was NOT in a bad neighborhood.

I was a bouncer back in the day in a college bar.  The women's bathroom was always the worst.  Tampons.  Tampons everywhere!  Why?

Because they know the person cleaning up after them is most likely a man.  It's a biatch revenge thing.


I worked for a year as a busboy/cleanup guy at a bar in college.  I don't know how women behave in offices, but in bars?  Women are the worst, hands down.  Men might pee on the floor near a drain, they will definitely pee in the sink, but that pales in comparison to what a women's bathroom in a cheap bar looks like at the end of the night.  I had to clean up graffiti written in shiat, menstrual blood, or even snot.  They would stick maxi-pads on the mirror and write insults in lipstick under them.  This was in the late 80's/early 90's - so this isn't something recent.  Women have been this gross while hammered forever.

Also, and I figure cocaine must have figured into this, at least twice a month I'd have to clean up discarded panties literally covered in shiat.  Not brown liquid, but something relatively solid that made them look like expensive used diapers.  They had weight to them. At no point in the entire year did I find anything even remotely close to that in the men's room.

Women's bar bathrooms are the worst of the worst.  Drunk women will out-gross any man any day of the week.  Men will pee everywhere.  Women seem to either shiat or bleed everywhere, but they want to advertise it, too.

AttawaYawattA: spongeboob: MadSkillz: puffy999: 
As someone who has trouble peeing at urinals if there are any people in the room, I support this message.

AS someone who gets creeped out by the guy next to me just staring ahead and not peeing when using the urinal I can also get behind this.

Come on now, we all get bladder shy every now and then.  Pro tip: Imagine peeing in the eye of your worst girlfriend.  Then just let it happen.


I can't pee when I have a boner.

You can mock him all you want, but he's right. Just because someone has a mental disorder and feels the need to mutilate themselves doesn't actually change them to another gender. It just makes them a person with mutilated genitalia.

Trolling or tag with "ought to throw self off bridge"?


RevMercutio: Can you guess the exact moment I determined you were a bigot and therefore unintelligent? I'm guessing not.


It is a disorder.  People with gender dysphoria are an anomaly in our society.  They deviate from the norm, and it has recognizable symptoms.  Just because something is labeled a disorder doesn't imply the afflicted are evil or not worthy of equal consideration.  By throwing these self-righteous fits every time someone calls a spade a spade, you demean the standing of everyone else who suffers from disorders.

PTSD sufferers wish they weren't broken, extreme OCD sufferers doubtless are annoyed by their compulsions, people who insist they were born the wrong gender have a completely legitimate argument, but it doesn't change the fact that it is a disorder.

We spend so much damn time tip-toeing around the least offensive term that we don't help the people who need help.

Also, resorting to ad-hominem attacks because you're frustrated people don't see it your way does not mark you as particularly intelligent yourself.

While I am not ready to accept that someone was "born the wrong gender", I do accept that they believe it.  However, to demand parents accept someone as female and intermingle with girls in a restroom despite having a penis is asking too much.  No, I don't really have a solution, other than as someone else suggested of using the staff restroom.

In some women's right march, the women were going bare chested.  They tried to tell the guys with cameras that they couldn't take pictures because it was a privacy violation.  They were informed, much to their dismay, that there was no expectation of privacy on a public street.  After seeing a few of the pictures, I was glad I was not present to see those cows in the flesh.

ZeroCorpse: I have decided in my second marriage (and my girl is fine with this) that bathroom activities are to be done in private. No conversations with the partner as they sit on the toilet. No standing there whizzing while she's in the room watching. No watching her do her business or deal with her menstrual issues. We go in the bathroom and close the door. We do not share the room when one of us has to use it for evacuation.

I know when you're in a relationship it's tempting to just do these things in front of each other, but I am positive that once you do, it kills the romance a little (unless you're a fetishist). It takes away some of the dignity you once had. It lets your partner see you in the most unflattering position you can possibly be in, and experience things that they will remember unkindly.

Share everything else. Poop or pee by yourself. You'll both be happier and more turned-on by each other as the years go by.

/And for goodness' sakes, guys: Farting around your spouse is not as funny as you think it is.


What do you guys do when you are for a ride in the country or a walk in the woods, I have to stand guard for my wife in these situations and I have to be close enough so she can here me tell her someone is coming.

Honestly, I couldn't possibly care less whether bathrooms are segregated or not.  I get it from the other end, though, it's not because I'm so absurdly PC that my delicate sensibilities can't stand any acknowledgement that there are multiple human demographics of any kind, it's because I grew up in a rural area and frankly places where more than half the population does physical work outdoors on a regular basis tend not to really give a shiat about establishing some sort of perfectly arranged tradition-laden meditation environment just to take a farking piss.  Many buildings in the place I grew up didn't even have more than one bathroom to begin with, plumbing costs money to install and maintain.

I mean, really, is this worth making into an issue either way?  Let businesses and so on do whatever, have public buildings like courthouses err on the side of the less forgiving standards, and if it bothers you don't use the bathroom at places that only have the one.  Not that big a deal and not really a political point.

Yes, calling this bigotry is taking things too far.  I don't think the OP was judging anyone when he said that transgenders have a mental disorder.  I can totally accept that they were born feeling that way, and I'm not going to knock someone who feels sufficiently compelled to do something about it to the point of self-mutilation.  To each his own.  But let's stick to the facts, because that's exactly what it is - self-mutilation.  Lopping off your penis no more makes you a female than putting on a wig, and you wouldn't let a guy in a wig enter the women's restroom in a public school, now would you?  Is it discrimination?  Sure it is, and it's totally appropriate.  Discrimination isn't a naughty word - we all discriminate every day.  Every time you choose chocolate ice cream over vanilla you have discriminated.  Being a discriminating person simply means making choices between things.  Discrimination is only bad when you use it to trample on the rights of others, and I don't think this qualifies.  When this man's bones are dug up by future archeologists, they will see X and Y chromosomes - male.  End of story.  He can self-identify and alter his appearance all he wants, and I will respect that as far as it goes.  But I won't call him "her", because that's lying, and I'm not ok with him using the little girl's restroom.  We don't segregate bathrooms to be bigoted, we do it to avoid uncomfortable situations and sexual abuse.

We should respect people's proclivities, even if they're not the norm, but not to the point that we pretend what isn't, is.  We need to stick to reality.

The problem isn't women or their breasts, it's stupid men who can't control themselves.
The main reason women have to wear clothes is so many stupid bastards can't keep their hands to themselves...or worse.
Then look at the Middle East where if a woman isn't entirely covered with robes, she's asking to get assaulted and raped.
The fault is all men who have no control over themselves.
However, the girls who smell like mackerel? That's totally on you.

2013-06-13 01:43:01 AM  
Let's get this straight (no pun intended). The person in question is not a girl. He is a boy. Despite Winkler's insistence on using "she" and "her" to refer to Nicole Maines, the fact is that "Nicole" is a boy who "identifies as" - read, pretends to be - a girl. No matter how you slice it, the truth remains that he is a boy.

Why would you need to say there is no pun intended? Being transsexual or transgendered are independent of sexual orientation. Of course, the rest of the drivel from the author speaks to insecurity about gender roles, gender identity, sexual orientation, genitalia, and chromosomal sex and the implications on our utterly simplistic view our society has of concepts such as our division of people into strictly male and strictly female. I think people are becoming insecure of themselves, realizing when we see a pair of breasts this does not mean the person attached to them could have necessarily grown them themselves by virtue of anatomy, will be married to a stereotypical male, wants to be a homemaker, and wants to give birth to and raise several children, and all of the people who have never had to wrap their thoughts around identity realize the identity for them is one forced by society.

PillsHere: As a woman I would prefer not to share a bathroom with men.  I've had to go into the men's room before at a job (my boss made me change the air purifiers when they ran out) and all I can say is no - just no.  The smell was ungodly bad and there never seemed to be soap in there.  I know women can be dirty and messy and I don't like it either, but at least 99% of women will wash their hands after using the bathroom (at least from what I've seen) which for men seems to be a lot lower.  I've noticed this at a job where my desk was near the bathroom and you could hear the sink through the walls.  Also I've noticed this with guys who come to my house.  But I know I'm on fark and people will tell me how hand washing isn't necessary.  Women who pee on seats are gross, but I will avoid those toilets with pee on the seats and I always use seat covers/toilet paper on the seat.  I don't need to add no hand washing and boogars on the wall to the list of gross things in the bathroom.  I'll stick with stinky tampon smell and probably peed on seats and not quadruple the problem.


Substitute "gay men" or "black people" for "men" above, and you'll start to see the problem with your statement.

Also, your preferences and inconveniences are noted, but all transgender people want is  to be treated like the gender that they are, and I think that their desires are bit more profound than "men are gross and I don't want to share a bathroom with them."  Your issues just end up sounding petty compared to theirs.

I'm not entirely sure why your, or the parents', opinions on the medical legitimacy of transgender people are in any way relevant here.  Maine has laws that protect people from discrimination on the basis of gender identity and expression; therefore, to say that it's asking too much is incorrect, as the state has already decided that it's in fact  not too much to ask.

Until they figure out how to change chromosomes, having a pecker removed does not make you female, nor does having one added make you male.  Real science beats the pseudo-science of human psychology.

sendtodave: To be fair, old piss does smell bad.  Ammonia stinks.
But "stinky tampon smell?"  Much, much worse.  In every conceivable way.  Including just the knowledge that it exists.


Women are more used to "stinky tampon smell" because tampons are a biological necessity, so they grow up with the things being a constant background odor in every locker room and toilet. Men are more used to "old piss smell" because a lot of concert venues don't serve anything but f*cking Budweiser.

PillsHere: but at least 99% of women will wash their hands after using the bathroom (at least from what I've seen) which for men seems to be a lot lower.


According to a totally unscientific group project I did for an Infectious Diseases class, it's about 55% wash rate.  And that's with many turning back from the door to wash their hands when they realized someone was standing near the door counting.  If there were an ethical manner in which to conduct a count which did not involve a visible monitor, I would dare say the numbers would be much lower.

/the guy who volunteered to count was a real trooper
//women's numbers came out to be about 90% with only a minor amount of "turnbacks" once the counter was found

However, I would prefer not sharing a bathroom with a scientologist to avoid the temptation of kicking the shiat of him.

Yah I didn't read TFA so I wasn't actually referring to transgender people.  Guess that will teach me.  I was just talking about having unisex bathrooms in general where there's 1 bathroom for everyone in all public places.  I don't care if transgender people use their preferred gender's bathroom.

ColdFusion: ///dudes, seriously wash your hands, if you learned the shiat we did in that class, you'd be scared your dick would fall off if you shook the wrong guy's hand.


To be fair, urinating for a man doesn't actually usually involve coming into contact with anything dirtier or more contaminated than the flush handle, so for men it's more about a general obligation to occasionally wash the last few hours' accumulated dirt and so on off rather than an actual worry about contamination.  Situation's a bit different for women most of the time.

OgreMagi: I support gay rights.  My family is mixed race.  Transgender is an entirely different argument, completely unrelated.


How so? Medical science is still uncommitted as to whether or not homosexuality is primarily due to genetics or upbringing, but current studies are leaning strongly towards genetics. It's believed that transgendered people may be the result of genetics as well. After all, brain structure is the main determinant of gender, not genitalia. Note that hermaphrodites tend to identify with only one gender instead of both, and in those sad cases where male babies had their penises removed for various reasons and were then raised as girls, the attempted gender reassignment usually didn't stick.

The biggest problem in doing proper studies is that homosexuality and transgenderism are still hugely controversial issues, and few researchers are willing to stick their necks out and attach their names to a theory. No matter what answers they try to provide, someone's going to be upset, and that's no help when it comes time to get your grant renewed.

OgreMagi: austerity101: all transgender people want is to be treated like the gender that they think they are,

Until they figure out how to change chromosomes, having a pecker removed does not make you female, nor does having one added make you male.  Real science beats the pseudo-science of human psychology.


There are various syndromes in which the patient is one sex externally, but genetically the other. Used to work with a woman who had one of those syndromes, either Klinefelter's or Turner's, I think. She was a female person who had male chromosomes. It's certainly not common, but it's real science. Gender isn't as cut and dried as "what parts you got down there?" or "Are you XX or XY?"

They should segregate bathrooms only by number 1 and number 2.

Jim_Callahan: ColdFusion: ///dudes, seriously wash your hands, if you learned the shiat we did in that class, you'd be scared your dick would fall off if you shook the wrong guy's hand.

To be fair, urinating for a man doesn't actually usually involve coming into contact with anything dirtier or more contaminated than the flush handle, so for men it's more about a general obligation to occasionally wash the last few hours' accumulated dirt and so on off rather than an actual worry about contamination.  Situation's a bit different for women most of the time.

I always knew that the Democratic Republic of Congo was one step away from being the rape capital of the world when it came down hard on unisex bathrooms.

Who gives a fark if SHIM is using a pole or a hole to go pee?

The French may have started sexual segregation but that was before the Bastille. Now they have 'em all over the place. Segregated ones are for the tourists and you see most of them in paris.

CSB: When I was kiddo camping in France my sister thought the urinals were the sinks in which you wash you hand. She asked? I answered... of course it's more efficient that way, the water comes out faster and the water is scented by that round "crumbly" soap.

Took a hiding but I still remember the look on my sister's face after my parents told her that wasn't a magical handwasher.

OgreMagi: Yes, how horrible of me to believe in science. I also don't believe in invisible sky fairies who help sports teams win games but let children die of cancer.


You know nothing of science beyond what your 8th grade biology class taught you. You're not even wrong you are so wrong.

In the real world, chromosomes determine what haploid cells you produce. They do not determine gender.

So women have this "daily wash: for their hoo-haa

www.justotc.com

Apparently some pH balanced soap doesn't change your lady flora so as to not start baking bread or something.

Why do men not have dick soap? Or asshole soap for that matter because I know  the ladies are washing their assholes with that as well.

You would need a scent that still kept with a tain't, chode smell yet sensitive to the ladies.

Any bottle of soap can be dick soap, as long as the opening of the bottle is large enough to stick your dick in.

i am not going to read the thread, but, submitter, even if  you are a "friend" of mine- I wish you nothing less than the full time of the rest of your life in a pain amplifier. Also known as my shoes. And the min that approved this headline. I used to like this website,  but thanks for nothing, Drew- you found a way to make a cool place just a hangout for trolls. Too bad- you *had* something nice , mate.
Thanks for catering to the lowest common denominator of user. Idiot .
