Devil's Advocate

obama stuck his nose in where it didn't need to be yesterday.

Obama administration issues guidance on transgender access to school bathrooms
The Obama administration issued guidance Friday directing public schools to allow transgender students to use bathrooms matching their gender identity.

A joint letter from the Departments of Education and Justice went to schools Friday with guidelines to ensure that "transgender students enjoy a supportive and nondiscriminatory school environment," the Obama administration said Thursday.

The announcement comes amid heated debate over transgender rights in schools and public life...
Of course, his daughters go to private schools, so he doesn't have to worry about the downstream effects of his pronouncement. But let's think about this for a minute. (here's where the Devil's Advocate thing comes into play.)
I have a daughter. I am firmly committed to protecting her from harm - physical, mental, and emotional. But I must confess that I don't see what all the fuss is about regarding the who-can-use-which-restroom controversy currently distracting us from much more important issues.

As I explained earlier, transgendered people have been using restrooms for years without problems.
If you stop and think about it, transgendered and cross-dressing people ... have been using public restrooms for years now without any serious incidents...

If some guy who thinks he's a gal goes into a ladies restroom, he's going to have to do his business in a stall - enclosed within walls and a closed door, his appendage safely out of sight...

Ditto for a gal who thinks she's a guy. She won't be able to use a urinal, so she'll have to use a stall, where no guy will be traumatized by catching a glimpse of her va-jay-jay.

In either case, other occupants of the restroom won't know and shouldn't care what kind of plumbing the person in the stall is using.
Putting it another way, we already have laws against public indecency, sexual assault, and what have you. That's the same argument we Second Amendment supporters use against gun control laws.
We already have laws against shooting people. Why do we need laws restricting where we can carry our firearms?
So why not let the existing, and IMO adequate, laws manage what is, again IMO, a non-issue? With all the other serious problems facing our nation, why are we letting ourselves be distracted by this nonsense?

I dunno...




It's eerily reminiscent of the controversy over making the $20 bill politically correct.

You wrote that Mullah Obama offered "guidance" on this. That ain't guidance, that's nothing more than another of his endless edicts.

WSF - and no sense of priorities.

Scottiebill - "guidance" wasn't my word choice. That entire phrase is the headline of the linked article.

This move is a smoke screen to divert the public from another Obama perpetrated rape of the Constitution.

He's gonna slip amnesty or draconian gun control right past the noses of the Democrat asshole-sucking Republican member of Congress while they fret about perverts in the Lady's crapper.

Toejam - or maybe he's trying to distract us from his lies coming to light about the Iran deal ... or the increasing disaster that is obama care ... or his upcoming apology visit to Hiroshima ... or God knows what else.
