    so if you have sexual reassignment surgery then you are okay in your book to use the bathroom you identify with? if so, why does having the surgery make you less of a threat?

    billions?

    mostly because transgendered, right or wrong, are afraid of people who want to beat them up just because they are different

    This bill cannot be written so narrowly, either. It must allow ANYONE who wants to that particular day enter the bathroom/locker room of their choice. The NFL is requiring something foolish, both morally, and technically, from a lawful language standpoint. In fact, just this last weekend, a man entered a womans locker room at a community pool, took his shirt off and ignored demands for him to leave. just to prove a point. This entire "new normal" is foolish from its beginning.

    lol, because the Super Bowl doesn't happen in Texas? You know how many will talk the talk, then sit and watch the Super Bowl anyhow?

    Whatever you say buddy. All the sports leagues are moving this direction. I suppose you can go watch hunting and fishing World Championship. I love fishing, though I do not hunt.

    When every business has to waste the money to retrofit every bathroom to make every made up gender feel "safe" that is in the billions and ridiculous....especially under the threat of taking away Super Bowls and championships.......that is extortion

    got a joke for you.

    a transgender, a homosexual and a liberal all walk into a bar.
    and the only reason i know this is because they kept telling me every minute who they were.


    just go where it makes sense and where you "look" like you belong and stop "looking" for everyone to tell the way you do. it will *never* happen. all this micro-dissecting things has got to come to an and and people just do what common sense says to do and the first step of that is to stop gasping in amazement people feel differently than you do. you want respect, give it. the rest will work itself out.

    I agree with you. I'm criticizing the guy who argued that resolving the issue based on whatever genitalia a person has currently is the solution. It's a facile approach that ignores the complexity of gender and the temporary nature of a persons genitalia. If you look at my previous posts, I too am demanding data and I've yet to see any. Not surprising, most of these folks walk around calling themselves tough/brave are actually afraid of their own imaginations.

    Nobody is asking you to retrofit anything. Just not arrest them when they use the bathroom. Grow up.

    Who's spending billions?

    The only money at stake would be that of the taxpayer in the form of trying to implement legislation and the challenges that would follow. Let the world continue as it has and no money is spent.

    Here's a question I'd like answered, why/how does being transgender make you any more of a threat?

    I agree, even most of the examples against involve a cis gendered person pretending to be trans so they can take advantage...

    apparently all the pedos in the world will now dress up like women to attack young girls in the bathroom.

    I can see that the movies "Boys Don't Cry" and "The Crying Game" are huge hits with some around here. .:p
    The level that some here identify with this makes it seem that either they are TG or someone they love is.
    No sweat off my back either way.

    what evidence do you have that pedos will now dress up like women to attack girls?
