    Rick Guy thinks the "Bathroom law" (aka Genda) was a waste of time for his incumbent opponent to sponsor.

    Is Rick off his rocker or what?

    The scary thing is not that he introduced the bill. It is that somebody will actually vote for it.

    The incumbent is not too happy that Rick Guy is using this as a campaign issue. Some are calling it negative campaigning.

    I think anyone who would sponsor such a law is a pervert who probably is a member of the Larry Craig fan club.

    Bill Magnarelli says it a matter of gender rights, and that Rick Guy is [email protected]" *

    I personally know Bill. It does not surprise me that he introduce this as he is very liberal. Pro-abortion,ect. BTW, I ran against him 6 years ago on the Conservative party line.

    * I only used the "G" word as I was quoting Bill, otherwise I use the PR term of homo~exual

    I don't understand the conflation of homosexuality with gender identity issues. They are distinct.

    Regardless of one's position on homosexuality, it baffles me that some people view transsexualism as being a natural occurrence. It's not natural. It's a disorder. If you are born male biologically and think you should be female, you have a gender identity disorder. You don't treat this disorder by accommodating it through surgery or transvestism. You treat it through counseling.

    It's amazing to me that we placate these individuals who have mental illnesses by encouraging their delusions. If an individual thinks he is Jesus Christ, we don't facilitate his delusion by worshiping him! If an individual thinks he is a bull, we don't allow him to have surgery to get horns!

    Why must you remove the "s" from the word? It's not a dirty word. It's just a description.

    I personally think this whole issue is pretty comical. Maybe I should just lock myself in the stall every time I'm in that state from now on.

    I think it's just to prevent ad triggers.

    The reason being that pop up ads will appear based on the subject being discussed. I think it has something to do with cookies -
