I think that they need to wait for another to show up and rock/paper/scissors for it. Best of 3.

Re: Bathrooms - Maybe Texas Learned From The Mistakes Of Others

The problem is that some conservatives seem shocked that TG men and women have used bathrooms for years and THEY DIDN'T EVEN KNOW IT.

So know it's all "think of the children" nonsense. TG men and women aren't a new thing. But apparently these lawmakers were completely oblivious to their existence.

Ill bet if you looked at the police reports from past years you'll probably see that 99% of male Restroom Rapists and Molesters went in DRESSED AS MEN.

Re: Bathrooms - Maybe Texas Learned From The Mistakes Of Others

Why do I get this feeling that Space Ape Mafia thinks transsexuals are men with big bushy beards wearing dresses?

Actually bathroom assault as insinuated by Space Ape is all but unheard of.

https://www.google.com/amp/www.wcnc....?client=safari

The overwhelming perpetrators of children are family or friends. And as the article notes, the very few assaults that actually happen in a bathroom are between children.

This is pretty easy stuff. We have plenty of actual experience, and statistics. People are just using made up, imaginary, unicorn "what if" boogymen to elicit emotional reaction. Just like the pushback about allowing blacks to share "white" restrooms or gays to use the same restroom.

Motion to have everyone quote this post in response to any post by Space Ace Mafia and anyone else who tries to use similar bullshit fear propaganda.

Re: Bathrooms - Maybe Texas Learned From The Mistakes Of Others

Why is okay for men to assault little boys but not little girls?

And there's the proof.



Unless you agree with them of course.

So stating biological truths are now "hate filled"? Wow, ok.

So we all have to conform to the "progressive" way of thinking or else it's hateful? Even if it turns us into biology-deniers?

You do know that there is mounting evidence of a biological backing for being a transgender person, right?

Or is your complete knowledge on the topic a penis or vagina?

Than why don't you advocate to keep men out of the women's bathroom. A transgender woman is a woman, so you should have no issues.

I hate to use the Buck defense, but...

So, you're OK with this guy walking into the changeroom when your wife and daughters are there?

2 things. Yes, you have to conform to the "progressive" way of thinking, unless you want to be that be that embarrassing neighbor that still calls Lawrence Fishburn a "negro".

Second, what are your biology credentials exactly? I graduated with a degree in Biology and a focus in genetics. So when you refer to biology, are you referring to anatomy or genetics? Otherwise, it's like talking about "entertainment truths".

Re: Bathrooms - Maybe Texas Learned From The Mistakes Of Others

Is this a biological truth like "women are weaker than men and therefore female action heroes are stupid"?

That's already happened at least a few times, tough guy. What did you do then?
