Men in Women’s Public Washrooms

In support of the transgender movement people are now expecting public washrooms to be gender neutral. I disagree with this idea.

Men (claiming to be supporting transgender issues) have been entering the women’s washrooms/ restrooms and filming it. I think that’s going way too far and I am really surprised people support this. Common sense says this is just putting women and children at risk for more abuse. Removing what has been a safe place and turning it into an unsafe place.

In addition, the women’s washroom is often busier than the men’s. There will be a line up of women waiting while the men’s washroom is available. Why, with this new transgender issue, are there no women filming themselves going into the men’s washroom? Why is it all about taking away the privacy of the women’s washroom?

Some supporters of laws that restrict the use of public toilets said allowing transgender people to choose their restroom could lead to women and children being attacked.  They said they feared that men could pose as transgender people and use legal protections as a cover. read more at bbc.com

How can women and children be protected from sexual predators if they can’t even rely on having privacy while they remove their underwear to use the restroom? How many transgender people are there compared to everyday gender people? As a woman who was attacked/ molested by a sexual predator in a public place (when I was a minor), I’m really against this.

Public restrooms have been used as hookups by gay men. But, until now they have kept it to the men’s restrooms. Now, when you send your child into the washroom, watching the door for their reappearance, timing how long it should take in your mind and somewhat nervously trying to let them grow up and become independent… how can you not wonder what will children be exposed to now that men have free access to the washroom?

Why not leave the public washrooms for the women be for families and the washrooms for the men can be for those who are male or sexually fluid? I can only see washroom sharing as making women easier prey for men taking upskirt photos from under the washroom stall (and other activities which I really don’t want to have to protect myself from).

Why are transgender people being put on such a great pedestal? Why are their needs given so much importance and consideration? So much that women and children are being thrown out of the lifeboats entirely.

When Women Carried Swords

Hat pins were not a joke. If women still wore hat pins there would be a hat pin fetish.

Being stuck with a hat pin would not make a good fetish. Too dangerous.

Some of them were 12 inches long, sharp and not used as a medical instrument traditionally.  I’m sure there would be a lot of accidental deaths by hat pin.

In March 1910, Chicago’s city council ran with that idea, debating an ordinance that would ban hatpins longer than nine inches; any woman caught in violation would be arrested and fined $50. The proceedings were packed with curious spectators, men and women, and acrimonious from the start. “If women care to wear carrots and roosters on their heads, that is a matter for their own concern, but when it comes to wearing swords they must be stopped,” a supporter said. Cries of “Bravo!” from the men; hisses from the women. Nan Davis, there to represent several women’s clubs, asked for permission to address the committee. “If the men of Chicago want to take the hatpins away from us, let them make the streets safe,” she said. “No man has a right to tell me how I shall dress and what I shall wear.”

Despite Davis’ impassioned speech, the ordinance passed by a vote of 68 to 2. Similar laws subsequently passed in several other cities, including Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, Baltimore and New Orleans. Ten thousand miles away, in Sydney,  Australia, sixty women went to jail rather than pay fines for wearing “murderous weapons” in their hats. Even conservative London ladies steadfastly refused to buy hatpin point protectors.
