'Coed locker rooms' spark citizen backlash
WorldNetDaily.com ^ | December 11, 2007 | Bob Unruh

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"This is a bad law all around and should be repealed," said Michelle Turner, a spokeswoman for the new group planning to operate under the name Maryland Citizens for Responsible Government.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.

BINGO

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.

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.

This is a VERY democratic county. We are getting a glimpse of the future if the democrats seize control of the HOUSE, SENATE AND WHITE HOUSE. If they cannot ram such nonsense through the national legislature, they will appoint tyrannical judges who will fabricate a law that proclaims one-sex bathrooms “unconstitutional.”

It's pretty obvious that the Montgomery county council members (and the County Manager) are the ones who want to climb into those showers with the little girls.

Signing petitions isn't quite the way to deal with these perverts ~ maybe there are some criminal statutes someone should trot out.

The pedophiles running Monkey county are certainly more open about it than the ones in San Fran, although that Nancy woman who's in charge of the House of Representatives certainly seems to favor open sex acts in front of an audience for the teenage pages.

Does she, herself, watch ~ (with an open or closed mouth).

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.

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”.

God only made two genders, and the choice isn’t optional. If you have created a problem for yourself in not being able to use a public restroom, then that was optional.

Conform to the two gender limit, or hold it.

Northern Virginia was created by Maryland tax policies.

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.

Why do people wait until "after the fact" to become Peeved over this crap.

Why not? After all the socialist Democrats consider the Constitution a "living breathing document"!
