I am having trouble following the logic on this bathroom issue. There is a very small number of people who feel that they are a woman in a man’s body or vice versa. Those people say they are uncomfortable using the bathroom of their physical gender and want to use the bathroom of the gender that they feel they are. But what about the vast number of normal people who would be uncomfortable sharing a bathroom with someone of the opposite physical gender? Does anyone care about their discomfort?
I was discussing this with my daughter, and she said there is a reason women tend to go to the bathroom in groups. We are vulnerable when we are in the bathroom, and we feel that there is safety in numbers. But what about a little girl who finds herself alone in a bathroom with a man? She would feel very vulnerable, very uncomfortable, and very unsafe. And, come to think of it, so would I and most other women I know.
Why does the potential discomfort of a very small number of transgender people outweigh the very real discomfort and danger to a large number of girls and women? Does anyone on the left have any compassion for normal people?
Unfortunately, it does not end with bathrooms. There also is a push to allow transgender people to use the locker rooms of the opposite sex and to be on the sports teams of the opposite sex. All a boy or man has to do is say he feels like a woman, and he is allowed into the girls’ or women’s locker room and onto the girls’ or women’s sports team. Most women and girls are uncomfortable showering in a locker room with other women and girls; they would be terrified to go into a locker room where boys or men were present. And allowing boys and men on girls’ and women’s sports teams will destroy women’s sports. Boys and men are physically stronger, so females simply will not be able to compete.
So where is the compassion? If you promote the policy of allowing physical men and boys in girls’ bathrooms and locker rooms and on women’s and girls’ sports teams, you cannot be a compassionate person, because you obviously do not care about the discomfort, physical danger, and loss of sports opportunities your policy will create for millions of normal girls and women.
Have people totally lost their minds?
