I'm sponsoring the "Americans with Transgender Syndrome" act. After us lawyers draft it, it will be put to a vote. The bill will include mountains of government mandates forcing all public buildings to undergo massive retrofits at a cost of BILLIONS.

Look for your taxes to increase substantially. Good luck.

I do not know if you have to go private for everyone but I do not think it would be difficult or expensive to install 3-5 private stalls in the locker rooms. I'm sure kids like you would have appreciated it as well.

Or these kids could change in the locker room that coorelates with their plumbing and call it a day.

If we are adding changing rooms for a girl who is mentally a boy, why not specific rooms for boys who like boys, girls who like girls, bi sexuals, boys who like redheads, kids who are fat, kids who are skinny, and so on forever.

This is a slippery slope.

Im not seeing a downside for some transgender or all gay students. They get to be in the locker room of the sex they are most attracted to. A girl who is mentally a boy getting to be in the girls locker room? Score.

I don't want to pay for that when my money could go towards better education tools and opportunities for these kids, not for a tiny group that could be individually handled, and are not physically disabled in any way preventing them from being able to use the current facilities.
Pretty much te way I see it. I had a surprising brush with something in this scene tonight. I travel up north getting riders on Craigslist rideshare to help with gas and driving. It's often a kick, I encounter interesting people.

I was checking out the ads to Portland and took a look at some of the competition, the other drivers. Found this:

Quote:
Hi! I'm driving from Palo Alto to Portland, Oregon tomorrow morning and I have space for a few people in my Subaru Outback. The car is in excellent condition and I have a clean driving record.

About me: I'm a 24 year old female artist/teacher from Palo Alto. I went to college in Portland, and I just returned from a year teaching English in Vietnam.

About you: If you're a cis-gendered straight male, I don't have a ride for you. Otherwise, respond to this add ASAP! I would prefer someone with a license who would be willing to drive a few hours. Thanks!
Oh no, not one of those cis-gendered straight males! Cannot abide such people. Means born with male genitalia and identified as male all ones life. Quaint concept. No idea of the complete status/history of the driver.

Really and truly, if it's my car and my life I believe I can be as discriminating as I want to be. No black lesbian amputees in MY car! Or whatever. If it's public transportation then you don't get to discriminate.

Craig's List is sort odd. Is the owner a contractor offering a service to the public? If so, then the owner would probably be obliged to follow the discrimination policies. Is there a lawyer in the house?

On the practical side, I sympathize with a woman not being interested in having an unknown full-on male from Craig's List in the car. It would seem like a great way for a serial rapist/murderer to find a victim.

Bet it would exceed $100,000 per locker room.

And lets not forget multiple genders where a person sometimes is male and sometimes female. How are those accommodations to work?
Sorry - its just getting crazy and don't feel like getting caught up in this BS

The irony here of course is all the screaming conservatives recently did about public bathrooms and the fraction of humanity that is transgender choosing which one they identified with.

If you dont care about this issue in schools and dont want to spend the money, why should money be spent on extra public bathrooms?

None the less, it is a big issue for parents across the country.

Next the gov't will be forcing sexual diversity by requiring recovering pedophiles to work in kindergarten schools.

At least in modern school buildings, there are bathrooms with stalls attached to the locker rooms. If you are uncomfortable changing in front of people, you just went in there. Probably what this kid should have done if he was uncomfortable in front of the trans person. There is no evidence to support the idea that actual trans people say they are trans to look at people in locker rooms or restrooms. It's more common for a priest or Republican politician to do that. Heck, 45 admitted to doing that.

its a big issue for people who assume that anyone who is of a different sexual orientation is automatically some kind of crazed predator.
