I try really hard not to be political on this blog, and always try to see both sides. However, the issue over transgender bathroom rights has hit a personal note with me recently. The fear mongering has hit epic proportions and it needs to stop now. This issue is getting out of hand and people are taking this to a new low. All over the internet, you see people being vile and simply in my opinion, disgusting. Examples are below.
The video above is a perfect example, of someone being vile, ignorant, hateful and a bigoted person. Also, a prime example of someone using religion to defend their indefensible actions. If our almighty god, did not want gays, lesbians, or even transgender people, why are we even here? A cruel joke? I think not. I think hiding behind your religion as your defense, is really despicable, because I known many people who are very religious and they are in no way hateful.
I like the above video, because someone actually takes a stance against his hateful actions.
Plain, and simple, this is nonsense, the fear is not real and unfounded. People who are going to do harm to another in a bathroom will do harm regardless of the sign on door or a retailer’s policy on transgender customers. Sexual Predators are going to be Sexual Predators regardless of anything else. They won’t need to dress up like a woman or “feel like woman” to commit their sick perverted actions. These sick people won’t need to “abuse” the policy because they never cared before. Also, let’s remember, that both men and Women can be Sexual Predators and they both have and will continue to commit sick acts even in their assigned bathrooms, that is a fact! For all the love in humanity, it’s just a bathroom.
The worst thing in this whole sad story, is that innocent people are being hurt, and harassed. Again, YouTube and Internet reports are surfacing that tells this story. An cisgender women in the Walmart bathroom was harassed, because she was mistaken for being transgender (Watch the video below).
Further, a father had to take his 5yo daughter to the bathroom in a Clinton City Utah Walmart, so he took her to the Mens Restroom, when another guy became upset with this and assaulted him. Source can be found here.
A woman in a Target’s Bathroom was peeped on by another woman, because she was afraid of her being transgender! Source to original story. This is ridiculous and the fear mongering needs to stop!!! The violence towards others needs to end. The best way to protect your safety is to be aware of your surroundings and report things that are off or suspicious. Don’t take the law into own hands, thinking you’re doing a public service, you’re not!
I know I’m sounding a little hot right now, but it’s only because of my recent personal experiences. I did not know, if this was something I should post or not, but here it goes. I was assaulted in a Public Men’s Bathroom, because I was too feminine. I had breasts, and men should not have breasts. I had nail polish on my fingernails and apparently that went against god. Luckily, my injuries weren’t too severed, my wounds will heal. However, my emotional state will take some time. I can’t go into a public men’s restroom any longer. I fear for the fact that I might have to use the bathroom in public. I now actively seek out stores that I know has single person bathrooms, so I can use them in peace without fearing my safety. Why should I fear the bathrooms, why should anyone fear a bathroom?
No matter your stance on this issue, lets stop the hate and fear mongering, because it leads us down a dangerous path where innocent people are being hurt. We are reasonable Adults, can’t we act like ones?
