So at this moment, I laugh as I type this. I laugh at the sheer temper tantrums being thrown because of a law that -clearly- is good for society. But before I begin I want to tip my hat to PayPal for leaving and keeping the state of NC free from it's liberal intolerant views. Stay in NY/Cali where you belong. On another note, no one even start with that, “doN”t boother dis DA with ur propaganda! GO tel it too sorsses!” listen guys, I've already made contact with PayPal, the Governor of NC and some other companies and gave them my view on this crap. Oh! And almost forgot! If you wanna join the movement -like I did- and cancel your PayPal account... do it. Just saying, you don't have to though.
And now to begin. First off, if you don't know what the bill is, read about it and not just the media's reports slamming it www.ncleg.net/Sessions/2015E2/… So if a man feels or thinks he's a woman he can go straight into the woman's bathroom. This bill is against that. Second off, since when were laws made on account of feelings? Tell me that. What's the old saying? “Don't feel, think!”?
Now let me ask you guys, and all the fighters against the law for that matter, a couple questions that Michael Brown asked Bruce Springsteen in an open letter to him and his band (in context with his cancelling his NC concert due to HB2).
First, how do you know if someone is really “transgender” or not? Is it determined entirely by how they feel about themselves? If so, do you think that it might be hard to make laws based entirely on how people feel? Did you ever stop to consider that?
Second, what’s the difference between someone with “gender dysphoria” (or, as it used to be called, “gender identity disorder”) and someone, say, with schizophrenia or “multiple personality disorder” or some other psychological condition? In other words, if a man is a biological and chromosomal male but believes he is a woman, is he actually a woman, or does he have a psychological disorder? If he does have a psychological disorder, should we try to treat that disorder or should we celebrate that disorder? And is it right to call biological males who feel they are women and biological women who feel they are men just that? Perhaps that’s not the best use of the term. If anyone is deeply offended that I would dare suggest that many transgender individuals are dealing with a psychological disorder, could you kindly point me to the definitive scientific literature that explains that these biological males are actually females and these biological females are actually males? I’m not saying they don’t deserve compassion. To the contrary, I’m saying that’s exactly what they deserve: compassion, not celebration.
These are questions you really need to ask yourself before you go protesting against something that the media slams because it's common sense. But let's go deeper and be more practical here. Let’s say that a 6’4” male who used to play professional football and who has secretly agonized over his gender identity for years finally determines that he must be true to himself and live as a woman. Do you think it might be traumatic for a little girl using the library bathroom to see this big man walk into her room wearing a dress and a wig? Should we take her feelings into account, or is she not important? What if that was your little sister, niece or granddaughter? Would you care if she was traumatized? And when you speak of “the human rights of all of our citizens” (I'm looking at you LBGT) does that include little girls like this? I understand that this gentleman will have difficulties should he decide to dress and live as a woman, but that is still a choice he is making, and it is not fair to impose his struggles on innocent little children, is it?
And what if this same man, whom we’ll assume is not a sexual predator, wants to share the YMCA locker room with your wife and daughter, standing there in his underwear as they come out of the shower stalls wrapped in towels. Is this fair to them?
Let's go deeper. If any man who claims to be a woman can use women’s bathrooms and locker rooms, then how do we keep the sexual predators out? I’ve asked people to watch this short video www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzwMJA… , giving examples of male heterosexual predators who donned women’s clothing to get into the ladies’ rooms, and I’d encourage you guys to watch it too. Without HB2, rapists and voyeurs and pedophiles would have free access to our women and daughters in the safety of their own bathrooms and locker rooms. Since you protesters clearly don’t like HB2 what’s your plan to keep the predators out? How can we tell the difference between a “genuine” transgender person and a sexual predator?
And one final question to Bruce Springsteen.
When you booked the concert in Greenboro, the laws in NC were just as they are today: In public facilities, people had to use the bathrooms and locker rooms that corresponded to their biological sex. Why, then, did you agree to come in the first place? Why cancel the concert when things today are just what they were six months ago?
You see guys, in your radical attempts to fight for what is right you fight for nonsense and a greater risk of crime. Though you fight for what is visibly wrong to your eyes (transgenders not getting their rights and are getting oh so heart broke) are you fighting for what is morally right? Really? With that I leave you to let this sink in and maybe you'll think from another point of view other than what you hear on the media. And since I'm a supporter of public opinion, in which I hope you guys are as well, I'll leave the comments section open.
So then obviously laws should be made in favor of religious groups when all they have to say is, “I know my god exists because I can feel him in my heart.” But wait, we'd be called psychotic... bigots even? lol Well I better go mail out some more buttered American popcorn to Putin as he watches American media.
