I haven't seen this much uproar over bathrooms since the 80's when it was argued that the proposed constitutional amendment guaranteeing equal rights for women was defeated, partly on the same  ludicrous arguments you hear today over transgender students.

"Weeks after a new North Carolina law put transgender bathroom access at the heart of the nation’s culture wars, a federal appeals court in Richmond, Va., ruled on Tuesday in favor of a transgender student who was born female and wishes to use the boys’ restroom at his rural Virginia high school.
Advocates for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people note that the ruling from the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit applies to North Carolina, where the controversial law approved last month limits transgender people to bathrooms in government buildings, including public schools, that correspond with the gender listed on their birth certificates.
As a result of the ruling, those advocates say, that portion of the North Carolina law that applies to public schools now clearly violates Title IX — the federal law that prohibits gender discrimination in schools."


  1. Puzzled about your gender? Look in your underwear.

    "Transgender" is not a physical issue. It's a psychiatric problem.

    Feelings, and one's choice in clothing, do not make a man a woman or a woman a man.


  2. You may be right, but that's not really the issue. The issue is how does government deal with these folks in a rational, constitutional way. Private citizens are free to deal with them as they see fit as long as there are no legal violations.
