  • Do Heterosexuals Have Any Rights?

    The current assault on women’s right to privacy in public restrooms implies that only those born with Gender Identity Disorder have any personal rights. GIDites believe that people with male anatomies who are dressed as women should be able to use restrooms designated for people with female anatomies. Women are justifiably concerned that sexual predators can take advantage of this situation and dress as women to gain access to women’s restrooms. Depriving women of their right to sexual privacy to accommodate men with a mental abnormality makes women second class citizens
  • Man Exposes Himself In Moorpark High School Girls Locker Room

    MOORPARK ( -- Police hope security video will help them catch a man who exposed himself at Moorpark High School twice last week. The footage shows a man with a beard, wearing a T-shirt and shorts sneaking into the girls locker room on May 11 and 12. He took off all his clothes and stood in the back of the locker room, police said. When students noticed him, they immediately left the room and reported the incidents. Parent Sumetra Upadhye said: "Both my sons are in the school, and they actually heard the girls screaming." Freshman Alexander Sliva said students...

    Transgender people said Thursday they fear a South Carolina bill that would require them to use the public bathroom for their biological sex will stoke misguided fears and endorse restroom vigilantism, even if the bill ultimately dies as expected. Opponents told a Senate panel the unenforceable measure perpetuates myths against an already-ostracized community, while supporters contend it’s about protecting the privacy and safety of women and children. […] No vote was taken during the panel’s second and final hearing. It’s not yet clear whether the full committee will consider the measure. But even if it manages to advance to the...

    Coverage of the Saturday night Democratic debate has focused on Bernie Sanders’ apology to Hillary Clinton for his staff’s poor judgment in viewing her campaign’s proprietary data. But Clinton issued a “sorry’’ of her own — although for a far less serious matter. Clinton apologized to a live television audience for returning late from the ladies’ room after the break. The reason is one many women are familiar with: An unexpected line for the loo. While Clinton waited for the ladies’ room to clear out, time ticked down and the debate organizers allowed the show to go on without her.
  • Gender neutral bathrooms have Troy parents picking sides (Troy, Ohio)

    Bathrooms are the center of a major debate in Troy after the school district’s superintendent announced in a message there will be a gender-neutral bathroom in every school. 2 NEWS observed over the weekend several Troy residents chiming in on Facebook about Herman’s message. --- However, the main factor is the federal law, Title IX. Often, people think of that when it comes to equality in athletics. The mandates of the law have expanded since the ’70s when it was first enacted; the law was challenged in 2013, specifically on gender identity. The U.S. Department of Education announced last year...

    13 March 2015 “We Just Need To Pee” Transgender Protest Do you have to be biologically male to be allowed in the men's room, or biologically female for the ladies loos? In several US states, as well as in Canada, the law governing public toilets is now a divisive issue. On one side are transgender people, who assert their right to use whichever restrooms they chose - no matter what their biological gender. On the other, conservatives who say a relaxation of the rules could leave members of the public vulnerable to traumatic or inappropriate situations, or even sexual harassment....
  • Which bathroom should transgendered students use?

    Maine’s highest court will soon decide which restroom Nicole Maines, a 15-year-old transgendered student, should use. Last week the state supreme court heard oral arguments about whether a school district violated her civil rights when it forbid her from using the girl’s restroom. She was in fifth grade at the time. Maines is biologically male but has identified as female since she was very young. As such, she wished to use the girl’s restroom. State law, however, mandates that boys and girls use separate facilities. Her school told her to use the staff restroom instead. These requirements violate the Maine...

    Nashville woman who found herself face-to-face with a “big, burly” cross-dresser in the ladies room of a family restaurant felt her horror turn to anger after a restaurant manager suggested she try the men’s room. Transgendered people in several states have been fighting for the right to use public restrooms that correspond with whatever sex they consider themselves, with lawmakers in California and Massachusetts providing support for the idea. But David Staton, whose wife had the disquieting run-in while eating out at Amerigo, a restaurant in the country music capital, has a simple solution.

    The Obama Department of Justice has reportedly ordered the University of Arkansas at Ft. Smith (UAFS) to allow a male student to use women’s bathrooms on campus. Campus Reform reports that a male student who calls himself “Jennifer Braly,” and is in the process of raising money to pay for his sex-reassignment surgery, filed a complaint with the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice after the campus told him to use gender-neutral bathrooms rather than women’s restrooms.

    JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA, May 21, 2012, ( – A proposed “civil rights” ordinance could open public restrooms and showers to transgender members of the opposite sex, its critics warn. The city council of Jacksonville, Florida, is considering passing an ordinance to outlaw “discrimination” on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity in employment, public accommodations, or housing. That means no employer, landlord, or owner of any facility open to the public may refuse to hire or rent their property to anyone who claims to be homosexual or transgender. The measure, supported by Councilman Warren Jones, also leaves employers vulnerable to...

    DENVER (AP) - Qatar's U.S. ambassador rushed to the defense of his envoy whom authorities say grabbed a surreptitious smoke in a jetliner's bathroom, sparking a bomb scare and widespread alert that sent jet fighters scrambling to intercept the Denver-bound flight. But no explosives were found and authorities speaking on condition of anonymity said they don't think he was trying to hurt anyone during Wednesday's scare and he will not be criminally charged. Qatar's U.S. ambassador, Ali Bin Fahad Al-Hajri, cautioned against a rush to judgment. "This diplomat was traveling to Denver on official embassy business on my instructions, and...

The incidents took place at restrooms in Wal-Mart stores in Unity Township and Burrell Township and on the campus of Indiana University of Pennsylvania. He was arrested after a Wal-Mart employee noticed that Marsh had spent more than 3 ˝ hours in the restroom.

    A San Francisco County judge, who yesterday struck down California’s ban on homosexual marriage, today ruled on the same basis that separate restrooms for men and women are unconstitutional. Superior Court Judge Richard Kramer likened the division of washrooms to laws requiring racial segregation in schools, and said there appears to be “no rational purpose for denying women access to men’s facilities and vice versa.” “The state’s protracted denial of equal protection cannot be justified simply because such constitutional violation has become traditional,” Judge Kramer wrote. “The court finds that the legal principle of lavatorio proportio [potty parity] offers inadequate...

    SANFORD, Fla. -- Eyewitness News discovered a popular Sanford fast food restaurant that's accused of storing food on the floor inside the men's restroom. The food that was left on the floor in the restroom was just one of several critical violations health inspectors found at a Checkers location in Sanford. Employees at the Checkers store on South French Avenue at West 15th Street apparently decided it was okay to store buns for their hamburgers inside a not-so-clean men's room. Tuesday, it appeared they had changed the policy, but not before racking up a dozen health code violations. "The bread...

Larry Craig's lawyers said Wednesday the Senate has no business looking into the conduct of one of its own following Craig's guilty plea in connection with an airport men's room sex sting. "We ought to seek to have the committee dismiss this outright," Washington attorney Stan Brand said of a Senate ethics panel's investigation. "Whatever homo restroom shenanigans Craig was participating in has no bearing on his office," said Brand on NBC's "Today" show. Craig says he may still fight for his Senate seat, a spokesman says - if...

    Larry Craig's adventures at the Minneapolis airport didn't inflict harm on anyone in the men's room, but there's collateral damage in higher places. He's likely to be back in Boise for good by the end of the week. The senator from Idaho is learning the bitter lesson that it's not the crime but the cover-up, even when it's not much of a crime and the only complaining witness is an undercover cop assigned to look for creeps and peepers. His "wide stance" in the stall, he says, explains why the cop mistook innocent toe-tapping for an invitation to whatever. The...

"At the time of this incident, I complained to the police that they were misconstruing my actions," he said in a statement Monday afternoon.

    WEST PALM BEACH -- Palm Beach Atlantic University has given toilet paper a whole new meaning. Blue-colored newsletters called Stall Talk hang above urinals and on stall doors in most campus restrooms. LocalLinks Administrators at the Christian-based school searched for an unconventional way to get news and information out to students. E-mails, posters and campus bulletin boards were just too easy to ignore. After all, the 3,100 students are saturated with countless media images every day, including TV, newspapers, Internet and billboards. Sheena Cunningham, 21, a senior at Palm Beach Atlantic, loves the idea. She said the potty rag helps...

    A gay Web site’s praise of bawdy bathroom behavior in Malden City Hall has sparked a tempest over the toilet. The mayor is ordering the first-floor men’s room to remain open while city councilors want it locked up or a security plan put in place. “The public needs these kinds of facilities and I don’t see the need of closing it,” said Malden Mayor Richard Howard, adding others are “overreacting” to the gay site. An anonymous letter sent to the City Council alerted them to a five-star ranking on the Gay Universe site for male-on-male sexual encounters in the stalls.The...

    More than one of four users of O'Hare Airport washrooms didn't wash their hands after going to the bathroom, according to a survey that found even dirtier hands in New York's airport. But in Toronto, 96 percent of airport bathroom users washed up. The high rate likely is due to fears over the SARS virus, which hit the Canadian city hard, researchers said. Observers who hung out in airport bathrooms spied on 7,541 users in six cities. Observers were instructed to comb their hair and put on makeup while discreetly recording hand-washing behavior. The percentage of non-washers was 29 percent...

    Five transsexuals are suing a pub boss who threw them out after one of the group used the ladies' loos. Landlord John Gawthorp says he asked the group to leave after other customers threatened to beat them up. Mr Gawthorp, who is fighting the case at Northampton County Court, has branded the action "ludicrous". Women customers at the Red Lion pub in Thornby, Northamptonshire, got angry when Jayne Smith - who has not yet had sex-change surgery - popped into the ladies' WC. The women warned the landlord they would use physical violence if they caught any of the sex-swap...
