Houston transgender bathroom bill debate centers on differing definitions of ‘men’

HOUSTON — The noisy debate over this city’s Proposition 1 has centered on whether it would allow men to use women’s public restrooms, which boils down to how you define “men” and “women.”

In a battle that has ranged from bathroom etiquette to gender rights to constitutional debates over religious freedom, a key skirmish broke out after former Houston Astros baseball all-star Lance Berkman appeared in an ad saying that the Nov. 3 ballot measure would “allow troubled men who claim to be women to enter women’s bathrooms, showers and locker rooms,” and the Yes on 1 campaign fired back.

    It’s simple as can be, if you are a male (born that way)use the men’s bathroom and if you are a female (born that way) you use the women’s bathroom and if you don’t know which you are then go out to the ditch.

  • What a sick, perverted, deranged society we have today!
    Ecclesiastes 10:2 – The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.

    2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 – and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.

    2 Timothy 3:2 – People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,

    Another case of morons running things. I don’t know how our country ever allowed these assholes to some how think that just because some nut job thinks he’s a woman to allow it to enter a woman’s bathroom or shower or locker room. You are either a man or a woman and all others can go to hell.

      Until a “man” has surgery to remove his penis and testicles should he be allowed in the ladies room. This especially includes all schools as well.

    A man is a human who possesses a Y chromosome and genitals that are know as testicles and penis.

    Liberals like Houston’s lesbian mayor are going to eventually destroy every city in America. Then the nation. I no longer believe it can be stopped. A tiny minority of freaks has the politically correct catering to their wants…not needs, but wants. Meanwhile, the welfare class is growing closer and closer to that tipping point where they carry elections. My greatest concern is for my grandchildren who will be here for the inevitable revolution–which may well succeed, unless the left is able to disarm the citizens before that.

      LGBT’s in general and the “Mattress-Munch’n Mayor” of Houston are void of morality and disruptive to the good order of things. If one is a “Man” – get over it and deal with it – it’s good to be a guy – you belong in the MEN’S Room when you need to pay the water bill. If one is a woman; again, deal with it. All of the things a woman can do in the natural scheme of things is the greatest gift ever to be given. It DOES NOT make sense to change it. Chas Bono and Bruce (Caitlyn) Jenner ARE NOT examples of how things should be. Like the rest, they are unsound anomalies that should not be revered. I almost forgot; Bowserb, you’re right – the Revolution is not far off…….

        Maybe Chas and Caitlyn can be a couple now. You know,,,get married and be a normal couple.

    For the perverted morons among us., For what your physical eye sees, what your mind’s eye perceives are two entirely different things, biologically. For purposes of elimination, discrimination on the basis of biological realities, without prejudice regarding defecation or urination by either the toilet, urinal, plumbing or cesspool or septic tank, is the extant rule. As a matter of public safety and comfort, “gender identity,” as a psychological, rather than biological, factor, is an irrational consideration negatively affecting public safety.
