Skip to comments.'Coed locker rooms' spark citizen backlash
Posted on 12/12/2007 4:03:26 AM PST by Man50D
Citizens of Montgomery County, Md., have launched a petition drive against a law they say essentially would allow people to choose their gender when using public facilities.
"This is a bad law all around and should be repealed," said Michelle Turner, a spokeswoman for the new group planning to operate under the name Maryland Citizens for Responsible Government.
Its website, Not My Shower, already has been launched.
The new statute was first given the green light by elected officials in Montgomery County and now has been signed into law by County Executive Ike Leggett.
"By the stroke of a very powerful pen, County Executive Leggett has broken the biological barriers that separate male and female facilities," the group announcement said. "No longer will women and girls be able to feel completely safe in the most private and personal bathroom and locker facilities of schools, public pools, malls, stores, health clubs, restaurants and other such public places throughout the county."
The organization said Leggett's signature on Bill 23-07 means even religious schools could be forced to hire transgender teachers "and then also allow cross-dressing but biological males in your daughters' school locker room."
Patrick Lacefield, the county's communications director, told WND that it's a free country, and "if people want to try to gather signatures, to put a measure that's been signed, passed unanimously by the council and signed into law by the executive, that's their right."

Who benefits from such ridiculous legislation? Is there really a large constituency demanding to use the toilets in the “other guy’s” bathroom? Or is this just top-down marxism aimed at destroying the status quo?
How’d you like to end up in the shower stall next to Helen Thomas?
The destruction of America and the status quo is the goal.
All that was must be trashed.
I left Helen Thomas in the toilet this morning.
“Who benefits from such ridiculous legislation? Is there really a large constituency demanding to use the toilets in the other guys bathroom? Or is this just top-down marxism aimed at destroying the status quo?”
This statement is very telling - “if people want to try to gather signatures, to put a measure that’s been signed, passed unanimously by the council and signed into law by the executive, that’s their right.” -
Meaning how dare the little people question their betters.
San FranSicko has nothing on Montgomery County MD. i.e. Berkely East.
Exactly...the arrogance of the 100% Rat Montgomery County commissioners and Ike Leggett is just astounding.
BUT, the good people of Montgomery County did just elect all of them to their exalted offices, and now this is what the local citizenry are reaping for their votes.
Soap-on-a-rope futures dropped sharply on the news.
Montgomery County is completely insane.
More Montgomery madness.
Signing petitions isn't quite the way to deal with these perverts ~ maybe there are some criminal statutes someone should trot out.
Does she, herself, watch ~ (with an open or closed mouth).
Sounds to me like the boys in the high school junior class are making the rules in Montgomery County...!!Heh Heh!!
I wouldn’t live in Monkey County for all the money in the world. Add to this nonsense that O’Malley and the Dem legislature just passed the largest tax increase in the history of the state, bumping up income, sales, and business taxes.
No authentic men left in Montgomery. Sad.
Sodom and Gomorrah on the Potomac.....
“You leave Ike Leggett alone! He’s a human being!”
This means that normal people who are accused of looking “wrong” at a preferred victim group member, will be arrested and convicted of a “hate crime”.
Conform to the two gender limit, or hold it.
All this means is that pressures for development in Fairfax County will increase, house prices will go up (while collapsing in the rest of North America), and we'll get a tax break down the road (since tax rejustment is required as valuations increase).
I'll never get out of the traffic jam.
When I was in law school a fellow graduate student (medical school) used to tell the story that when she was a swimmer on the women’s swim team of a well known university, she asked for, and received, permission to use the men’s locker room and shower. She said that if she had to be ogled when changing or showering, she would rather that it was men, not women doing it. She also said that the men were largely very gracious about her presence in their locker room.
“... the men were largely very gracious about her presence in their locker room.”
Well... duh! Can you say “don’t spoil a good thing”?!?!
I would break some graciousness records myself.
I suspect that the shower room had more wood than an Amish furniture factory.
No fear - - the geniuses who continue to live in this county will re-elect the same godless Democrats.
I’m suing you for making me fall out of my chair, laughing.
Gracious is as gracious does.
I’m not up on all the nuances of the Constitution. Is it possible for us to kick Maryland out of the Union for embarassing the hell out of the rest of us?
Why do people wait until "after the fact" to become Peeved over this crap.
Private school means PRIVATE! Keep the queer child molesters out.
What? Men. Women. Other.
Dude...fight back. I am going to email the jerks and burn their ears off. Join in...we will trash them, they won’t trash us...
