Coed locker room plan sparks surge of outrage
WorldNetDaily.com ^ | November 3, 2007 | Bob Unruh

Posted on 11/03/2007 4:10:02 AM PDT by Man50D

A surge of outrage is developing in Maryland, where the governing council in Montgomery County is planning to vote on a plan to open the doors of its public restrooms, locker rooms and other facilities to those who "perceive" they are that gender.

"From what I'm reading, the person with the gender identify confusion is being protected by what she or he FEELS he or she is. Thus, we'd have to protect this person's gender based upon what is in his or her MIND. So, if I'm in a bathroom all by myself late at night, and a man walks in, I am supposed to be okay with this? If I'm at a pool, in a women's locker room, and a man walks in – I'm supposed to be okay with this? This is truly unbelievable, and I'm embarrassed that Montgomery County is even spending its time on this piece of nonsense," a resident, identified as "Lisa," wrote to her elected representative on the board.

WND reported on the pending proposal, facing a vote by county officials in a little more than a week, after Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays raised some concerns.

The report caught the attention of a Canadian WND reader, who notified his friends, who live in Maryland.

Lisa told WND she first called her county offices and asked them about the proposal, and was told that such "open doors" for those who perceive themselves of a gender other than their physical characteristics wasn't possible.

"I heard about Bill 23-07, and, frankly, was shocked. I went to your website and pulled up the bill and read it," Lisa said in her letter to county officials.

So let me get this right, while law enforcement agencies around the country are conducting sting operations in men's bathrooms looking for gay prositiutes, these people in MD are giving virtually anyone who claims they are of the other gender full access? Right!

Ike Leggett and his Council of Montgomery County Commissars are first class morons.

With that said, the good people of Montgomery County did elect them to their exalted positions, and now they are reaping the fruits of their votes.

If she's hot looking and he has a camera, I might be okay with it.

I believe this is the same county that banned Santa Claus from a Christmas parade a few years ago, because non-Christians might feel left out of the fun.

As long as you have a knobber and look and speak like a woman, bathroom choice is optional.

This bill is a pedophile’s dream and a father’s worst nightmare when he spends a day with his daughter, who will undoubtedly have to use a restroom. Now good freeper dads. What would you do if a man walked into the public restroom your daughter was using?

Let me get this straight.

I already feel uncomfortable at times with the “women” in the locker room at LA Fitness (you know, the ones who peek way too much and too long.)

Now we’re expected to deal with warped guys as well?

Women don't check each other out the way men do thanks to their anatomy. Unless there's a urinal in a women's bathroom, I don't think someone would know a tranny had that *extra* set of parts.

It should be painfully obvious, folks, why the American Bar Association and lawyers in general support liberal Democratic candidates. Stupid and potentially litigious laws such as this GUARANTEES they'll have more work than they can handle.

This is planned chaos, socially destructive, and insurance for future lawsuits.

This whole situation goes beyond parody. How can you reason with people who think it’s a noble cause to enable men to use the lady’s room? You need something other than reason to defeat these people (lawsuits, removing them from power, something to force change). Rational debate is useless.

Well, maybe now the prostitues working the men's rooms will be women! Look on the bright sid...uh... What am I saying!!!

Okay. Instead of having a men's room and a women's room, maybe now they'll have a prostitution room and a restroo...uh... Oops! I've lost it again.

Nevermind. It's useless to try to make sense of insanity. This is the predicament of the rational mind in the 21st century--to be surrounded by insanity and psychotic people with no escape hatch.

What's really alarming is that the people who make these nutty decisions have no idea that they're nuts.

I’m not going to have to face that question, fortunately. My kids are grown and gone.

It’s a sobering question though.

If us Freeper Dads did what is morally right, the daughter is going home, alone, with the police. In fact, she’s probably going to Social Services. Dad’s going to jail.

Much of our world is upside down.

I haven't heard about such, but I do remember back in 2001, when the town of Kensington (which is in Montgomery County) banned Santa Claus due to similar concerns. If I remember correctly, the people complaining would have actually been fine with Santa if a menorah or some such were included in the display, which used Santa and a Christmas tree.

It's not the restrooms that are the problem — it's the locker rooms and shower rooms at pools and gyms. I am already grossed out by the exhibitionists of my own sex in my gym. I would hate to think of a little girl being used as an unwilling witness by a male so-called "gender dysphoric" who is in the women's locker room testing the limits, should this insane law be passed.
