Not having children see other children's genetalia.

No, that's not a purpose at all. Kids don't go round flashing each other with their private parts, and if they wanted to, they would.

Men are rapists, didn't y'know? They just don't have any self-control.

Having a penis in a different stall is like infringing my rights yo. Even if that penis is attached to someone who looks completely like a woman with no criminal record.

Women can and do use urinals. I wan't aware that toilets where used by distinctive sexes. There is such things as stalls.

Is it honestly that hard to have unisex bathrooms? And I don't mean a single toilet, I mean multiple unisex stalls.

I've seen it in Toronto, and it seems to work.

And that's a reasonable criticism to make. I would disagree, but there it is.
Screaming "transphobic!" Because it's not going your way is not. The fact of the matter is that bathrooms and locker rooms are segregated on the basis of sex and not gender and the state passed a law declaring that fact.

That they did. I would argue that lockers and bathrooms ought not to be segregated that way...but I've already said that. I do disagree with the state's decision, of course.
Overall, sex segregation seems to be a weak effort to protect women and girls from the threat of monstrous pedos. It's only a coping method and doesn't attack the problem at its' source, all the while inflicting maleffects such as installing in our minds the idea that only dudes are pedos.

Each sex can quite easily use a bathroom corresponding to the other. It's not as if male restrooms only have urinals.

Then separate restrooms have no effect as they can see through the wall separating the men's and women's room.

I'd say a lot of transgender people ,probably most, don't pass. If just about anyone passes anyway then there's no justification for parents to allow transition or puberty suppression in their children.

Not to mention, it's not uncommon for the sexes to use the other's bathroom. Especially if one is full. We have to queue, but men are just in and out. What's up with that?

TRANSGENDER people don't want to rape anyone. Well, statistically, some of them probably do. But no more than any other group. The problem is that anyone could claim to be transgender, and say that they haven't had a sex-change operation yet. Then go and do whatever they want in the bathroom of the opposite sex. Filming, eavesdropping, anything (Can't really see actual, foll-on rape happening in a crowded public restroom though). A better law would be to keep people who claim to have not yet had a sex-change operation to the restroom of their biological gender upon birth, and allow all other members of the transgender community to use the restroom of their own gender.

Anyways, I do sort of hate how they say the bill is to "Protect women". I'd feel violated if someone had taken pictures of me naked too. It also implies that FTM people don't exist, or that only men are capable of sexual assault. Which is an implication that manages to insult everyone at once.


It's not about the transgender people, it's about potential predators.

SO again, considering women can breastfeed in public in NC, and stalls exist in women's restrooms (and men's if it is a toilet) exactly how does this protect modesty and prevent against sexual predators?

I can see the modesty argument, but urethras can fire urine into urinals and toilets from any position fairly well. Originally the urinals were made for male convenience, but I've yet to see any reason women couldn't use them.

I'm genuinely surprised that they didn't censor the name of this Miss Jefferson. It's almost preposterous that something so barbaric could be coming out of the mouth of a person seeking higher education. What she essentially says is that she presumes all boys to be sexual predators: that is the most sexist thing ever said.

That made a bit more sense to read. At this point, I'm just going to ask, are you or are you not against Transgender people? I still have to disagree though, I've met very few Trans people who weren't very convincing.

I can't see the modesty thing since women can breastfeed in public and there are stalls in restrooms. I am pretty sure men face a wall when using a urinal so no modesty issues there unless you are really trying to look at a man's penis, and that would be...pretty obvious.
