A Simple Solution to the Transgender Bathroom Problem May 24, 2016Posted by geoff in News.
Just replace the signs with “XY” for the Men’s room and “XX” for the women’s room.
I think a lot of the (manufactured) problem is that libs have changed the meaning of “gender” so that it no longer equals “sex.” Then they look at the sign on the door and fret that the sign doesn’t reflect their inner being, even though the sign was always a simple sex differentiator, not a gender (new definition) differentiator. Changing the signs makes it a simple biological definition.
The other argument is that transgender folk want to go to the bathroom with the sex that most aligns with their “gender.” But so do the majority of people, so why should 0.3% of the population get to force their preferences on the remaining population?
My daughter, a fervent high school social justice warrior, tells me that I shouldn’t care who’s in the bathroom, but then, why should transgender people care either? She then says we should bend over backwards to accommodate transgenderite’s preferences, because they suffer disproportionately from depression and suicide.
To which I think, “That’s great, our public policy is being defined by people with mental health issues.”
But I guess that’s nothing new.
