3. & 4. False dichotomy. I fully support gender-neutral bathrooms, but I also realize that without the legal right to use the restroom that is in best accordance with one's gender (i.e., not sex), gender-neutral restrooms become little more than a new "colored restroom" for us.


You lost me. 1. How dare you compare something so frivolous to racial segregation and Jim Crow laws? 2. There are no lynch mobs after you. 3. You're not receiving any less quality restrooms than anyone else. 4. Such a comparison is simply disgusting and uncalled for.

5. I hope I haven't triggered your self-diagnosed PTSD with this post.

6. EDIT: And two divided by two does not equal 3.


1. I dare because it is literally a matter of life and death. Hardly frivolous.

2. Walk a mile in our shoes, then tell me that. Look at this list. Read this report. Look at these statementsthreatening violence against transgender people in "the wrong bathroom".

3. Being forced to use an unsafe restroom inherently makes said restroom of less quality.

4. Only to the willfully ignorant and uninformed.

5. I have no clue where you're getting the idea I have PTSD, self-diagnosed or otherwise. And, if anyone here is being triggered, it seems to be you.

6. Good thing I never said it did.

When the LGBT community is enslaved because of their sexual orientation or gender identity, you can make this claim. Until such time, it's kind of insulting to the black community.


Does over a millenium of lynch mobs and excused murders and the Holocaust count? Because all of those things happened to the LGBT community through history because of our sexual orientation and/or gender identity.

God has no authority over the laws of man. Also, the first amendment of the constitution says no laws shall be made in respect to the establishment of religion; or in layman's terms, no laws can be made in the name of any God.

Personally, I think he means Uruk. After all, he's clearly referring to the struggles of Gligamesh and Enkidu to find acceptance in a hateful world.

You lost me. How dare you compare something so frivolous to racial segregation and Jim Crow laws? There are no lynch mobs after you. You're not receiving any less quality restrooms than anyone else. Such a comparison is simply disgusting and uncalled for.

I hope I haven't triggered your self-diagnosed PTSD with this post.

EDIT: And two divided by two does not equal 3.

Your error is when you say "there are no lynch mobs after you".
♂♀Copy and Paste this in your sig if you're ignorant about human sexuality and want to let everyone know. ♂♀
Or if you're an asshole that goes out of your way to bully minorities and call them words with the strict intent of upsetting a demographic that is already at a huge risk of suicide, or being murdered for who they are. :)

His other error is assuming this HB2 bill isn't essentially a Jim Crow law against LGBTs, one of many that have existed, and is likely in retaliation for the Supreme Court's essentially legalizing gay marriage.

The "no lynch mobs" is a really big thing, though.

Yeah, that's the bigger error of the two. Just felt like pointing that out.

Additionally there's the implication that the problem with segregation in the US was that black people were getting lower quality services and facilities, as though segregation would be fine if the facilities were separate but equal.
