When you're coming at the bathroom issue from the angle that socially conservative folks are, data and actual facts in the world mean nothing to you.
Sure, I can grant that. But maybe the people making the decisions (I'm looking at you, school board) should?
What, you don't believe that people will go through all the pain and expense and personal upheaval of transitioning just so they can go peek your lady bits in the potty room?
Why no. No I don't.
I thought the idea was to be pure of heart. I'm not sure "everybody else's junk" would be covered by Philippians 4:8 "Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things."
Whoa, throwin down the scripture on a Friday afternoon. Let's not get too crazy now.
Also, great letter to the editor. Like a boss, I say.
Ugh...those comments on the mediamatters.org infographic...reminds me just how uninformed and unintelligent many in power truly are...
I've thought about this dynamic a lot - where people in conservative religious subcultures get really freaked out about things and no amount of actual facts in the real world will speak to their concerns. I wonder if part of it is that so many natural human emotions are supressed in that environment, so the emotions that are allowed (righteous anger, fear for our women and children, etc.) are experienced and expresed with heightened intensity.
I don't think it's helpful when feminists are dismissive of the concerns of real women. I don't want men in the bathroom with me.
