Oh my god... Women don't wan't a guy in their bathroom! That proves... Uh... Well ... Um ... Nothing. The guy isn't trans he is a creep that filmed himself walking into women's bathrooms.
Congratulations on promoting a negative opinion of trans people and continuing to stoke public fear of people that you claim to support.
Wrong. I have seen MUCH worse looking trannies and so have you. Most of them are NOT passable in the least. Very few people have the funds of Bruce Jenner to transition that well into looking like a woman. You're hiding your head in the sand if you think this is going to go over well.
I am not wrong in anyway. He identifies as a man and not as a trans woman. That is 100% clear in the video. I am not sure what passing or Caitlyn Jenner* has to do with anything that I said.
What he is doing is promoting the idea that being trans is simply being a guy dressing as a woman. He is then following that up by promoting people's fears that trans people are just men dressing as women to get into women's bathrooms.
Bathroom accommodation laws date back to 1998 in the United States and there has yet to be a case of a trans person sexually assaulting a person in a bathroom. So, despite what you may think trans people have been happily picking the restroom that is consistent with their gender for some time now without issue. Will some people object? Yes. People objected with black people sat in the front of busses too. Bigotry dies hard but that is no reason not to fight it.
* Once again your hypocrisy is exposed. You claim to support trans people but here you are intentionally mis-gendering someone, refusing to call the name they choose. Ironically you will call a cisgendered person (David Bowie) by his chosen name but you won't show a trans person that same level of respect.
You're just being disingenuous now. You and I both know that most transexuals do not in any way look like a female and are not passable. Many (if not most) still have very deep male voices and are simply men in women's clothing, and according to Target.....they don't even have to be wearing women's clothing. They simply have to "feel" like a woman on the inside.
I brought Caitlyn Jenner into the picture because you obviously oppose this video because he does not look passable, so once again this boils down to how much like a female the person really looks.
And I showed no disrespect. My exact words were: "Very few people have the funds of Bruce Jenner to transition that well into looking like a woman." In other words....BRUCE JENNER paid for the transitioning. Notice how I said he "transitioned?" You're just determined to attacked me. Maybe you need to step away from the computer and catch up on your Rupaul's Drag Race for a while. Serious question: Could it be that you're so sensitive about this issue because you secretly want to transition? It seems to be all you can focus on.
I cut out the link to the YouTube video because having that pop up every time we quoted each other was just taking up space. Hope you don't mined.
I'm actually all caught up on RPDR but thanks for the concern. This season has turned out to be really good especially after the lump of crap that was the previous season.
I could see why you would ask that question it is certainly one explanation for why a person would feel strongly on the subject but the answer is no. I covered why I feel strongly on the subject in another thread but I'm happy to say it again.
As a minorty group trans people are victims of extremely high rates of sexual assault, physical assult, murder and homelessness. They encounter those issues at rates that no other group does. Even more alarming is teenage trans people are even more disproportionately impacted. I find that to be unacceptable especially given that a person being trans has no negative impact on anyone else.
Also, as I mentioned elsewhere my son's best friend is trans. I don't know this for a fact but I assume you aren't a parent. Being a parent, like being anything, gives you a different perspective on things and while I have no reason to think my kid is trans it isn't hard for me to think "what if he were? What if he were like his friend?". I wouldn't want my kid to go through what I see my trans co-workers, friends and acquaintances go through. I wouldn't want him to be the subject of the ridicule and contempt that I see on TV and forums like this. I don't want him to be part of those statistics that I mentioned above and I don't any other kid, or adult, to be part of them either.
That is where my sensitivity is coming from. As I mentioned before, this is an issue that has a body count.
Okay, back to the video. I don't object to the video because the guy doesn't look like a woman. I object to it for the reasons I stated. He is not trans. He equates being trans to just putting on women's cloths. We seem to both agree that latter part is not the case. He also seems to think it is okay to film people going in and out of bathrooms and to record the audio of what is going inside them. I don't know about you but I find that to be a bit creepy and based on that behavior alone I wouldn't want to go in a bathroom with him no matter what he was wearing. It isn't a trans experiment. It is a guy doing sensationalist bullshit.
