    It need not be sexual assault to be indecent exposure.

    No. The "movement" is saying "Look past my sexuality and consider me as a person".

    They're not being "railroaded". Gay people exist; get over it. They want to be treated as equals and they should be. If we waited around until every single "phobe", as you put it, was comfortable with LGBTQ+ we'd be waiting years until most of the Boomers died off.

    I'm sure there were those who thought that they were being "railroaded" by Civil Rights sit-ins that took place in the early '60s, but Civil Rights leaders didn't wait for whites to become comfortable and not feel as though the media was finding a "hot topic"; they fought - and sometimes even died - for their rights.

    Again....it's a locker room. What would you be expecting?

    Unless I'm just not understanding your point, but I don't think that's the case. I think you're blowing something way out of proportion.

    ...where exposed penes do not legally belong with exposed vulvae (in a public venue).

    Naturists have their own legally exceptional spaces for such. The rest of us (and the applicable laws) are not naturists.

    It's not a big deal to me either. Other than the fact that I'm not as good looking as I used to be, I'd have no problem if we all walked around naked. But by your logic, a twenty-five year old school teacher should be allowed to teach her second grade class completely in the nude. And maybe there's nothing wrong with that, I dunno. But I'm wondering, If this occured say, tommorrow, would you be ok with it? And could you see how some people/ parents may object to this?

    Of course they should be treated as equals. How is asking a man to use the men's restroom not equal?

    Yeah? I didn't know that, but I doubt the main concern here is a legal issue regarding a misdemeanor. I mean, is this your main issue with it, a mismatch with existing laws? That can be the case when societal norms change. I doubt we would need new laws, just a clarification of existing ones? I don't know, but I don't get the sense this is the main reason for opposition to it, but maybe I'm wrong.

    assuming I am offended doesn't make anything you said valid. It did however help you avoid actually addressing anything I posted.

    you are just using it to promote hate and now violence against a minority.

    Maybe you should be asking SugarCookies to back up the claim about “Teaching Gay Sex to children as young as 5 in Schools as part of cirriculum”

    Eating lobster is an abomination in the eyes of the Lord. As are about 90 other things including Christmas trees, tattoos and poly cotton blend shirts.


    maybe you would do well to find out rather than assume.

    are the reasons for opposing transgender individuals in a public bathroom reasonable? Are they any different from the reasons for racial segregated bathrooms?

    If that were true you just lazy you wouldn't be typing out all these responses

    Was the post you saw accurate?

    Is there such a movement?

    Those, here, who claim that there is nothing wrong with coed nudity in public venues are denying that [indecent exposure*] laws exist, and that they reflect social mores at large.
    To the contrary, they claim that laissez-faire nudism has always been the legal standard and that the bulk of us just haven't gotten that memo yet.

    (NAMBLA advances their political agenda, the normalization of pedophilia, using the same strategy...)

    ?

    Good? What about Trans individuals? Should they not use the bathroom for the gender by which they identify? Don't you think it's questionable - at best - to get into checking people's private regions before deciding what bathroom they're "allowed" to use?

    Or maybe I'm not understanding your point here?

    How is this my logic at all? Going from co-ed locker rooms and/or same-sex bathrooms to naked teachers is a Superman-level leap.

    You know what, I'm not up to date on proper terminology, so take whatever words I'm using with a grain of salt. I thought we were talking about transgender folks using the bathroom of their preferred gender? I don't know, maybe I missed the OP's point. My apologies.

    ETA: I take it gender neutral bathrooms are to accommodate those who identify other than their birth gender, if that's the way to put it. So, yeah, much ado about nothing, imo. Moving on.

    I agree with you about non conforming, but in practice, would you take your child out of school who insists on this woke madness? If I had children I would.

    I dunno call me pedantic but am I the only person here wondering why the term 'same sex bathrooms' is being used to describe 'Unisex bathrooms'? - like really? I mean seriously the clue is in the name - same sex bathrooms are bathrooms set aside for the use of people of the 'same sex'. i.e. 'The Ladies' or alternatively 'The Gents'.

    Also, I'm pretty sure LGBTQ people don't really have much of an interest in perving on members of the opposite sex, so any guys out there that are worrying about these things, you might want to go pee in a cubicle next time you're out and about, unless you are feeling like communal peeing is just not a thing you want to give up, lest civilised society crumbles as a result.

    When one goes camping, the "spartan" washroom facilities are often undesignated adjoining stalls available to both males and females, who are apparently oblivious to the fact that they are participants in a hot-bed of perversion!

    Once that stall door is closed and locked, does one need to be preoccupied as to the gender and sexual orientation of those who occupy the adjacent stalls?
