Just Use Whatever Bathroom You Want I Guess

The massive push we are experiencing nationwide in regards to the mainstreaming and forced acceptance of homosexuality is branching out to encompass the entire so-called Lesbian, Gay, Transsexual, Bisexual, and Transgender community. And the idea that we have to now completely and totally bow to the whims of the sexually confused is extending into every area of public life including the schools. The seemingly latest idiocy is that any gender that declares himself or herself as ‘self-identifying’ as the opposite gender has to be given full access to the restrooms and locker rooms of the gender of their choosing. In our topsy-turvy modern world, once again the wishes of a very small but militant minority trumps the rights of the majority with impunity. No account is given to children, or the feelings of their parents, who might have an objection to children of the biologically opposite sex sharing such tight and private facilities with them on a daily basis. Apparently nothing is off-limits when it comes to accommodating sexual dysfunction.

I illustrate this point by showcasing an example from my home state below.

Transgender Girl Wins Right to Use Bathroom at Public School

In a decision being hailed as monumental in the struggle for transgender rights, the Colorado Civil Rights Division ruled Monday that a 6-year-old transgender girl, Coy Mathis, must be permitted to use the girls’ bathroom in her school.

A little more background on this story can be found here:

Transgender Girl’s Parents Lobby for Her Right to Use the Bathroom

Kathryn and her husband, Jeremy, appeared with Coy on the “Katie” show Wednesday to talk about the case. “The school is really missing out on something big,” Kathryn, a photographer and certified nurse’s assistant, said during the broadcast. “They could be taking the opportunity to teach all of the students that everybody is different and that we should embrace our differences and we should respect everybody. Instead they’re creating this divided environment where they’re showing all these children that a child is different and we’re going to treat them poorly because of it.”

Meaning, of course, that “embracing our differences” means boys can use girls restrooms regardless of how actual girls (or their parents) feel about it. I knew a good number of high school males who would have rather suddenly discovered their inner female right around swim class with the female locker room so close by, but that’s another story. But I guess as long as you can state with a straight fact that you identify as a girl the great state of Colorado and a good number of others will play along and allow you to roam the girls locker rooms and restrooms with utter abandon.

By the way, do not miss out on perusing the comments sections of these articles. They are not to be missed and while I maintain a semblance of decorum and restraint when addressing these types of social matters, others do not.

It’s a sick and twisted world we live in. Gee, I wonder why the kid thinks he’s a girl because we dress him like one, cut his hair like one,  take him to girl scouts, and act like he’s one? What a pile of horse manure. It’s ridiculous to the extreme. I know little kids who thought they were a dog, a soldier, a princess, and many other things.  Sometimes, for significant amounts of time. I believe I thought I was member of the Rebel Alliance for several years after the Star Wars movies came out. It’s a kid being a kid. Your plumbing and your DNA define your gender, not societal fads and screwed up parenting.  These parents are setting this kid up for a lifelong journey of gender confusion, emotional damage, and social stigma. And then they have the unmitigated gall to force us all have to put up with their twisted view of the world.

The fact that the other genetically identical triplet ( the one that is not disabled) is apparently as normal as can be expected in this dysfunctional family is just another testament that in fact that this type of thing is not really genetic, but a product of environment and guidance by others somewhere along the way. While this is all kind of cute and giggly now, wait until puberty arrives. Guess what junior, you really ARE a boy. I think they’ll all be surprised one way or the other. Won’t that just be fun for everyone involved when it’s shower time in the girl’s locker room? This really is a form of blatant child abuse and emotional negligence and unfair to every other child out there. What kind of father does this to his son? And what kind of  ‘man’ will he turn out to be?

No one wants to admit it or say it, but parents do have the important role of helping to impart gender identities and responsibilities into their children. That’s one of the reasons God has given children parents in the first place. We are here to impart identity, responsibility, morals, values, ethics, social mores and skills, and related subjects into our children so that they may mature into well-rounded, emotionally healthy adults. When you do not do that, this is the kind of result that can transpire.

If one my three girls had suddenly decided to play the game with me that they were going to act, live, and behave like a boy all the time the answer would be a firm, loving, and determined “I don’t think so.You are a girl and you are going to look and act like it whether you like it or not. Believe me, you’ll thank me later.”

I didn’t have any sons so I did many of the things I might otherwise have done with a son with my daughters. We went bug hunting (I’m a big bug and animal guy), and threw around a football, and shot a gun, and wrestled etc. etc. I taught them to be self-reliant and confident and respectful of themselves and their bodies and to stand up for what is right and correct. I also taught them to realize they are young ladies and to act like it at least once in a while. I helped shave off the “rough edges” here and there and taught them that femininity was not a badge of shame for them, but a badge of honor. It’s what sets them apart from men and is something that should be treasured among women. They are fairly ‘girly’ to one degree or another and I love them for it.

My youngest (age 10), especially, is my shadow and adores me beyond belief. She quite openly imitates me in a great many respects in her tastes and interests. I am, of course,  flattered and we have a great relationship and spend a significant amount of time one on one together. But that doesn’t mean I would ever encourage any gender transference in looks or deeds, or suddenly allow her to abandon who she truly is physically, mentally, and emotionally. Which is a girl. And she is encouraged to be a girl, look and act like a girl, and identify as a girl even as she is the apple of her father’s eye and his little buddy. That’s true parenting.

As the “progressive” popular culture wrestles with the concept as to whether there are really three, five, eight, or perhaps even more genders and “that human gender is not a fixed thing but a mere ‘social construct’ that is ‘changeable over time,'” the rest of us know better. And we really should stand up and not put up with this anymore. Screw up your kid on your own time, but don’t expect my daughter to share the bathroom with your son.

  1. “I don’t think so.You are a girl and you are going to look and act like it whether you like it or not. Believe me, you’ll thank me later.”

    I wonder if you would still feel this way with a dead “daughter” instead of live “son. Believe me, if your child was Trans, this is a very possible outcome of insisting they be something they are not.

    Just something to think about.

      1. I understand you think this is funny, some ort of joke and you know what? I wish it were so simple. But I can tell you without doubt, there are parents out there right now who thought just as you do. Parents whose children were Transgender or Homosexual, Parents who did everything in their power to have cisgendered, heterosexual children and in the end have nothing left but but memories, regrets, and a headstone.

        Oh and if you are thinking to yourself, my child is only ten, she wouldn’t even think of suicide… the first time I seriously thought about killing myself, realizing death was a very real option if I wanted to take it… was when I was ten.

        Never, never, never think it cannot happen to you. That it cannot happen to your child…
        because it can.

        I’m sorry I cannot give you happy thoughts, that I cannot share in your laughter. For me, this isn’t a joke. It is a life and death reality just as it has been and is for so many. I truly hope you never face what I have faced, I hope your children grow up to be happy and strong, but don’t make the mistake of assuming it is all going to turn out the way you have planned, things change, people change and if you insist on forcing life to be the way you demand it to be… you stand to lose it.

      2. I have, in fact, also contemplated suicide. That is a truly selfish option, and one that my God doesn’t give me a right to entertain. So, I sin and make mistakes. The Bible also tells me that, if I confess my sins to God, he is faithful and will forgive me.

        There are a lot of things in this world that I am asked to do as part of correct and moral living that I may not be comfortable doing. The Bible tells me to obey the government, unless it’s telling me to break God’s law. God’s law tells me that it’s an abomination to confuse genders. Therefore, I have to follow God’s law on this one.

        Sorry that you had such a troubling childhood. Guess what, so do most people. (I could tell you stories that will make your little problem seem like nothing, unless you actually feared being shot to death every day.) But then we grow up. We learn to minimize our weaknesses and capitalize on our strengths. The problem our society seems to be having at the moment is that no one wants to live to any standard. This is chaos. And it’s still downright selfish. It’s time to grow up.

      3. Well, you have answered some of my questions about you and your stance on issues. I grew up in the Baptist faith, I was the child of a Minister so I think I understand your thinking well enough… oh, and yes, I did fear being killed on a regular basis, just as I feared being verbally, emotionally and physically abused on a daily basis. It is true I could have had things much worse than I did, but I have had my share of the bad things too. Never assume, okay?

        I am not going to going to get into with the problem of living according to Biblical law, somehow dong so is just a lost cause.

        I will say something to your last point, one which echoes my own father’s words, “suck it up”, “be a man”, “man up”… sound familiar? Sort of difficult to do when your a child being beaten with a belt by a grown man wouldn’t you say?

        Well, maybe that’s just me.

        Oh, and one last thing… I wonder what sort of God is going to demand you allow your child to die because they don’t meant your standards of who you think they should be… The same One who tells you to stone your daughter to death if she has sex outside of marriage? Will you be standing there with the first stone and a curse on your lips or does that law no longer apply?

      4. Well., there is a huge difference between being raised and being abused. Sorry you had to go through that. Like I said, God forgives our sins. It’s too bad that parents project on their children. My father was also a minister, wasn’t always to kind in his words. So, yes, we have something in common. After a couple of decades of living to please my father, I found a way to forgive him and move on with my life. I also found a way to God’s forgiveness. I’m not perfect, and neither are you. But, there is still a standard for which I strive. For the many times I don’t reach the standard, I fall on the mercy of God. That is not called “sucking it up, growing a pair, or manning up”, it is called maturing, growing up. If I was a little flip, it’s because I’m sick of people coddling children. If you were abused, then you have a darker perspective. I understand that perspective as well. It’s just that I see the other one much more often. My apologies.

      5. One other thing. There is a great confusion among many Christians about Jewish law. Jewish civil laws provided for punishment in Jewish society, the nation of Israel. This nation, as applies to the Bible, no longer exists. One of the greatest disservices rendered in the Christian church is the idea that we should be using that law. Jesus told us that the new commandment was to love one another. Sin has not changed, but Jesus came to redeem us from sin. We are, therefore, not under law, but under grace. While I don’t condone sin, it is not my place to punish it. If I condemn another for the dust in his eye, then I have to condemn myself for the tree branch in mine.

      6. This reply is to you, what you do with it is your choice…

        I don’t know which denomination you follow, but as I mentioned, I grew up in Baptist churches; first Southern Baptist then Independent. Despite my home life I enjoyed the fellowship I found within the various congregations and I find I often miss it.

        It may be the most difficult part of life, knowing I will never again be welcomed in such places. I may find a church somewhere which accepts me, but it will not be a Baptist church.
        They, as you have spoken of, have very set beliefs when it comes to anything LGBT related. I understand what it means and I respect their choice.

        I don’t know what the life I live now will lead to in the end, it may very well be I was damned long ago. I understand this and again, I accept it. Please understand, despite what you may think or believe, I did not choose who or what I am. Being Transgender is as much a part of me as the blood which runs through my veins. I spent decades fighting myself, denying the truth about myself until I finally couldn’t do it any more. You have contemplated suicide, I have survived it. It really did reach such a point where I was willing to face an eternity in hell rather than continue as I was. Of course I may have done nothing more than delayed the inevitable, yet I could and can nothing other than I have.

        We are saved by grace and not of ourselves… truly, this is my only hope.

        Thank you so much for taking the time to correspond with me, I truly appreciate it. And know, you have nothing to apologize for.

        Sincerely,

        Kira Moore

      7. The fact that your life is not over means that your time of grace continues. This is why suicide is the greatest sin, because it ends our time of grace. I thank God for saving your life. I pray that you will find your peace with him.

  2. What the hell is a 4 year old being “diagnosed” as transgender for? Look into the background of the parents and you’ll find leftist ideology abounding. This poor kid is a victim pawn of social engineering.

  3. Once again, the minority (one) trumps the majority. Perhaps we should have three bathrooms…Girls, Boys and Confused!

  4. I am 90/10 on this. If this girl which if I read is correct, has a body of a girl but a p—s of a man then obviously she is not someone who is faking it. There are people who are born with the opposite sex parts and actuall studies show there are men and women born in their respective bodies but their actual brain workings is of the opposite sex.

    Now if people are just doing this for sick moral values then I will agree, but so far and I may be wrong, if this is the same story I read about earlier, she has a twin brother who is not trangendered. She has the body of a girl but instead of having a v—–a she has a p—-s. You cannot just ignore a significant thing like that saying the parents are coddling her. If one of this OP daughters had this significant problem, he would be more aware and open to the struggles these people faces.

  5. I feel sorry for a kid stuck into this circus at age 6. From the likely effect on the kid, it seems immoral though more than the available info will be needed to decide that. But it ought to save a fair amount of money; we can just supply unisex facilities as is done elsewhere. And the NSA can monitor them to keep trouble under control…..

  6. today i am a girl, tomorow a guy, the next a eunich, the next a millionaire, the next a homeless person…I can do whatever i want, what is wrong with people…you are born at birth either Male or female…. get over it!!!!
