    Maybe a restroom with "Sexual Deviants" on the door would satisfy Barney.

    It is for real.
    It may not pass this session, but will be introduced
    each year until it passes.

    I remember when I was a kid in a town of about 8,000 (then
    only 3,000 now). The Bus stations restrooms were labeled:

    MEN

    LADIES

    BLACKS



    Now days there is a symbol for men & another for women
    (strangely, the woman is wearing a skirt or dress).
    I betcha the new symbol will be half man symbol
    and half woman symbol :confused:

    (Anybody want to start a pool on if the right or the left
    will be the 'man' half?)

    The transgendered folks I know generally pick a restroom and go with it. The idea of separate facilities is a bit silly.

    I remember one summer in the late 1970s I was
    down in the SIX FLAGS OVER TEXAS in the Dallas Area.
    I was waiting for my party to finish a ride.
    I was in view of a Rest room: men on the left, women
    on the right, a hand rail in front of the door.
    A probably 8-year-old boy and a 9-year-old
    boy when into the men's room.
    About 5 teen-age boys dressed in drag studied
    the MEN/WOMEN signs, had a short discussion and
    went into the men's room. Out comes the two
    boys: one over the rail, one under the rail.
    "What the /expletative deleted/ was that"
    exclaimed the 8-year-old. The wiser 9-year-old
    said: "They were /expletative deleted/-ing
    guys dressed like girls :( "

    Transgendered people may just "go with it", but it's hard for the rest of us to do that.

    Well, let's take a man who is in the process of being transgendered into a woman.

    I would be very uncomfortable if he(she) were in the restroom with me, because I believe that no matter what superficial medical procedures he(she) has undergone, genetically, he is still a man.

    And, because this transgendered person has the appearance of a woman and is attracted to men, I can only assume that there would be some men who would be uncomfortable if he(she) were in the bathroom with them.

    My heart breaks for these people who are so emotionally and spiritually troubled that they go to the extreme of changing what makes them a unique creation of God in an attempt to find peace of mind and happiness. It's very sad to me.

    This bathroom issue is just one of many "technicalities" that we as a society are going have to address and think about. Maybe no laws are required, but discussions are very important.

    I know two transgendered people, and I wouldn't follow either one into any restroom.

    Sorry, I think playing God with one's body is wrong. I'm not interested in understanding it.

    I would like a bill introduced which requires that all white males, between the ages of 35 and 45, should receive foot messages and hair trimmings. I would also like a daiquiri, with option of adding alcohol, to be provided. And when I leave the restroom, I would like the greeter speak Aussie and say "Have a good day Mate".
    In addition, anyone with the name Ralph receives a free car wash!

    Thank you,

    Well, honestly, if I knew the person was transgendered, I would be uncomfortable. If I don't know, though...

    And confusing on many fronts. The fact that your heart breaks, and is not hardened against them, speaks volumes for your Christlike compassion.

    I agree that discussion is the key. Despite my opening post, I really think the idea of passing a law is a bad idea. If businesses want to (or want not to) provide special restrooms, etc., it should be their call.

    There is a modification to the above bill as per a request by trajic_pizza, as follows.

    Motion carried! This bill is to include anyone by the name John aka TRAGIC_PIZZA. The aforesaid bill shall also include any friends/family of John's.

    However, the Bill shall not be modified in any form or fashion to include women. This is a man's only club, just call us the Rascals! We still love you ladies but you're out on this one!
