    No, a man does not have as much right as a woman to be in a women's locker room. That's why it's a women's locker room.

    And it is not “hateful” to point this out. This is probably where those of you on the far-wrong are eventually going to lose—your relentless insistence on labeling what the vast majority know to be common sense, common decency, and the plain truth as “hateful”, “bigoted”, or whatever.

    - She did no slander him
    - she is not a bigot because this is not about transgendered... IT IS ABOUT A MAN BEING IN THE WOMAN'S LOCKER ROOM
    - You are misrepresenting/misunderstanding facts and insulting the woman and by your logic you are slandering her

    Well she definitely made an ass of herself.
    And I don't want boys in my daughter's locker rooms and would complain about it... would that make me an ass? Stupid conclusion...

    She made a huge ass of herself for how bigoted she is and how much she complained over nothing. She didn't complain that there are unauthorized men in the locker room she tried to insist that this person was dangerous with no evidence of such hateful claims.
    Did she say he was dangerous or that she didn't feel safe... Nope... she did NOT say he was dangerous: ""failing to protect me if anything happens in those locker rooms with a man.""

    Making up facts and repeating that she is a bigot is one way to debate... unfortunately it is silly and incorrect and leads to a failed argument.

    Do you really think that it is “hateful”, “bigoted”, and a demonstration of “ignorance” and “disrespect” to have serious and sincere concerns about a creepy pervert like this being allowed free access to women's dressing rooms? Seriously?

    What about having respect for the women who want to use that locker room? Why do you think it reasonable to show such outrageous disregard for their safety, comfort, and well-being, in order to “respect” a creepy pervert?

    And yours is the side that likes to falsely accuse my side of waging a “war on women”.

    You can't know that about everyone, of course.

    But a creepy-looking man who dresses like a woman and expects to be allowed into women's dressing facilities is prima facie evidence that he is a pervert.

    Where did I claim that the man was "a danger"? See... you are making these assumptions. She doesn't feel safe. I would not feel safe about having boys in my daughter's locker rooms either... that is not safe. Safe has many meanings to it but yo useem to think that it only means that we are saying that he will attack her. That is stupid thining... you are calling, or at the very least insinuating, that I am hateful and a bigot? That conclusion, based off of everything that I have said in this thread, is comical. I am anything but hateful and bigoted but your intellectual capacity is certainly apparent and it is woefully lacking...

Last thing a man wants during cave time is a woman around. Well, women want to chill without men around and feel safe and secure being naked, changing, whatever.

    I would not stand by if a boy felt like a girl and used my daughters locer room for a second. Ignorant fools and PC idiots could label me a bigot all they like but that boy will not be in with my girls. I will contact the school, the board, the district, the media. I would stand in front of the girls room and make it clear that he is not allowed in as well.
    The rest of your post is just obnoxious.
    Not wanting a woman in the men's locker rooms is obnoxious?

    Wanting to chill out and have some cave time is obnoxious?

    Not wanting a boy in the locker room with my girl's is obnoxious?

    Challenging Political Correctness MORONS that insist that you agree with them or you are a hate filled bigot is obnoxious?



    Lady... that is some insipid and odious tripe you are dishin' there...

    It is her irrational fear that makes her feel unsafe, not the transgendered person in the locker room or even a man in the locker room.

    "Pervert" is subjective. And there is no legitimate argument that simply dressing as it identifying as the opposite of your born sex makes you dangerous.

    While he is technically a pervert I would argue that the term pervert is is disrespectful with regards to transgendered because perverts are generally associated with guys that look up womans dresses, gets off to kiddy pictures or looks through holes into a woman's locker room, etc.

    Yes, I am guilty of being a tad-bit PC here...

    It is wrong to assume they are a danger just because of the gender they were born to.

    Are you a danger to women in any public place? Would you attack a woman if you were alone with her in the gym or a locker room? If not, then why do you assume other guys would or are?

    Do men scam on women... leer at them? Make inappropriate comments to them? Hit on them? Attack them in order to rape them? Yeah, doesn't seem so irrational after all.
