    So its okay for that "creepy male pedophile" to be in the men's changing room, with young boys? Because essentially, that is what you are saying. That man could still leer at children (boys) and make them feel uncomfortable. And anyone can make anyone else feel uncomfortable, even when they don't do anything at all.

    Not one person has made that claim that know of.

    We can hope that this will bring us finally to a much-needed turning point. As a society, we have made a great deal of “progress” (for wrong-wing values of that word) toward accepting and embracing all manner of sexual deviance, perversion, and immorality.

    It's easy to accept any evil, if one doesn't expect to be affected directly by it.

    But I think it will always be the case that most women are never going to be comfortable having strange men present where they are undressing; and as more and more women realize that accepting the sickness and madness of “transgenderism” means accepting that men (and not even normal men, at that, but men who are overtly sexual deviants of a disturbing sort) being allowed into their dressing areas; I think more and more women are going to become much less accepting of this particular sickness. And along with these women, so will turn the opinions of their husbands, fathers, brothers, sons, and other men who care about the well-being of the women in their lives.

    Men pretending to be women, and being allowed into women's dressing areas, I hope and expect, will be the bridge too far for the pervert-rights movement; that will turn the tide of public opinion away from the madness and evil that it has been embracing, and back in the direction of common sense and common decency.

    No, it isn't, especially not when the "man" is dressed as a woman, and not even getting naked or staying in there longer than to put up their bag or get it.

    Sklodowska entered the women's locker room twice — once to hang up her belongings and once to retrieve them — and says she didn't even know someone had complained about her presence until friends told her that a news story was circulating about a woman's membership being revoked.

    Actually it is, even if they aren't the one naked other women will be changing in there and may not want a man in the locker room. You don't get to dictate what someone else should be comfortable with. Fact remains they are a man in a women's locker room, and it's not an unreasonable discomfort for women to feel uncomfortable with a male in there where they may be changing.

    If what I have presented doesn't convince you that the individual in question is a strange, creepy man, then I cannot imagine what evidence it would take to convince you of this. I can only conclude that you are just solidly, obstinately determined to deny what is obvious, no matter what evidence is presented and no matter how solidly it proves what you are trying to deny.

    I directly quoted you saying so. You keep alternating between outright saying something and then denying that anyone has said it.

    Yes, I am better.

    A person who has the decency to stay out of the opposite sex's dressing rooms is prima facie better than someone who lacks such basic decency.

    I think it is fair to say that possessing or lacking such an essential element of basic decency is among the best defining criteria of who is better than who else.

    Whatever else you may think of me, I do possess this element of decency, and we are comparing me to someone who clearly does not possess this element of decency. On that basis alone, yes, I can rightfully claim to be better than that other individual.

    No you have not provided anything that shows me he is a strange creepy pervert simply because my views aren't bigoted. And of course you would think as you do because that's what bigoted views would make you think. Again I think you for your post and showing those bigoted views.

    The only think you have shown is is the person is a transgender . . . .there's nothing that you have provide that would make that person a "freaky, creepy perverted man"
    Transgender does not equal "creepy perverted man. Also you haven't quoted me saying anything, I don't know how many lies you have posted now but I lost count. I've never said once that uncomfortably is bigotry hahahaha.

    No, you aren't. "Decency" is subjective.

    Another example of bigotry. This one is like the purest definition of the word.
