I feel for the people of North Carolina. In an effort to protect over 99% of the people in their state from the possibility of would-be predators, the legislature passed, and the governor signed into law “The Bathroom Bill”, which basically states that you have to use the bathroom of the gender that has been recorded on your birth certificate. So what is wrong about that?
Well, according to Loretta Lynch, the US Attorney General, you can’t do that because you’re offending and discriminating against those people that are so confused in society that they aren’t sure if they are a man or a woman. What Lynch fails to realize is, it would allow people that are, shall we politely say, less than forthright when it comes to their sexual desires, to go into the other genders’ bathroom under the guise of that being what they “think” they are, and hang out there. Now, my kids are all grown and have flown the nest, but I have grandkids, and I don’t think for a minute I would be comfortable sending them into a restroom somewhere if I felt a guy could walk into a woman’s restroom posing as a “woman”. Nope…not comfortable with that one at all.
And let’s be honest here, shall we. We have 318,860,000 million people in this country. According to the National Health Institute Survey, which apparently follows this sort of thing, there are 1.6% identify themselves as being gay…0.7% identify themselves as being bisexual, and 0.3% are transgendered. That figure was taken in 2014, and frankly, I don’t think it grows all that much. Back in 2011, The Williams Institute, who apparently also follows this type of thing said 1.7% were gay, 1.8% were bisexual, and 0.3% were transgendered. So to begin with, we aren’t talking about a LOT of folks here.
And so, the people of North Carolina have to invite sexual predators into their women’s bathrooms just on the say-so of the predators because they’re feeling female that day? Apparently so. And these are the same people that scream about doing “the greater good for society” and forcing all of us to have healthcare insurance, even though some people either don’t want it, can’t afford it, or don’t feel they need it. Apparently the wishes of the 99.7% of folks that aren’t transgendered don’t qualify for the “greater good” theory here. It just doesn’t make sense.
If the transgendered folks out there are offended, I say, get over it. We in this country have become “offensive-minded”. All you need to do to get special treatment is tell the world how offended and discriminated you are because you can’t do whatever it is you want to do. I don’t believe that’s the way the world works, and if you feel that way, I’d invite you to listen to the Eagles song, “Get Over It”. Stop your bitching and get on with life. You’re missing out on a lot. If you feel you’re a woman trapped inside a man’s body, you’ve got some issues you need to deal with. You don’t need to drag the REAL women in this world into your fantasy. And to Loretta Lynch, go ahead and try and stop the state of North Carolina. You’re out of a job in eight months anyway. Nothing will even come to trial before that happens.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
