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.

Problem 1) It's Newsbusters. So, level of trust slightly less than Fox News, Daily Mail, and Breitbart
Problem 2) That's not at all what the article is about, it's about Transgendered individuals having to use separate bathrooms than either men or women.

spongeboob: Since few people seem to have read the article and fewer still probable clicked the link to the original article let me just post this


the school required her to use a staff bathroom after a grandparent of a male student complained that Maines shouldn't be allowed in the little girls' room.

I am okay with having her(yes I am going to call her, her) using a staff bathroom I think that was the school's only option.
But two questions come up it was only the grandparents of a student who had a problem, and grandparents of a male student, so the parents of the other children didn't have a problem.
Second I would think that the people who would be most likely to have a problem with this type of issue would also have a very big problem with a transgender(read queer) using the same bathroom as boys and watching them and wanting to have sex with them


I think if a 15 year old of any sex is brave enough to tell everyone that person really feels like a member of a different sex, and then proceeds to dress like that and take on behaviors consistent with the identified sex and that they are doing all of this just to get a peek at naughty bits in a restroom, well, hell, I have to applaud their ingenuity and perseverance and think they should be rewarded with that sort of access and by my addressing them as they prefer.

Otherwise, I would suspect they are telling the truth, especially if confirmed by parents, grandparents, and shrinks.

Bathrooms I don't see a big deal about, since in a uni-sex bathroom you wouldn't usually have urinals, and nobody should be trying to peek into your stall.

I was just having this discussion last night with some female friends. I love public unisex bathrooms, because they're so much better tended than men's bathrooms. If they could get away with it, most men's rooms in businesses would consist of a light switch and a hole. The prospect of women using the bathroom insures that there will be a supply of toilet paper, soap, running water, et al.

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?"

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.

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.

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.

PillsHere: 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.


Then why does the men's room run out of soap faster?  Hmm?

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.

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.

RoyBatty: The only reason restrooms need to be segregated is to keep the chicks from peeing all over the seats.

I've been in women's restroom; they are disgusting. Hell no, I don't want women in the men's room, when I sit down to play angry birds I don't want to have to spend 30 minutes wiping the seat and flushing the ass gaskets.

Stupid women and their hovering, I hope cis-women don't pass that on to trans-women.


At work, I use the women's room two floors down because very few women work on that floor. I rarely see pee on the seat. The restroom on my floor is absolutely disgusting.

The last good thing about being a man is not having to wait in line (or at least not very long) for a public restroom. I they're all unisex, we'll have to wait in line with four times as many women even if the patronage of the location is about equal.
