Quote# 44036

"Opening up restrooms and locker rooms to anyone 'claiming' a different gender than the one he or she was born with is simply an invitation for Peeping Toms and sexual predators to take advantage of the chaos to endanger women and children," said Bruce Hausknecht, judicial analyst for Focus on the Family Action. "Appeasing the gender confusion of a few at the expense of public safety is an insane purpose for such legislation, and one that society should vehemently reject."

Why don't we just make unisex restrooms? It would be so much easier.

Little kids get taken into the restrooms of the opposite sex all the time.

Are you saying their parents are molesting them?

8/2/2008 6:25:27 PM


Unisex bathrooms solve everything.

But Focus on the Family, what about TEH HOMOSECKSHUALS?! They're already going into bathrooms with the people they're attracted to. Wouldn't it make sense to let them go potty with the opposite sex?

And why the fuck can't these people understand that transgendered people just want to be treated like the gender they identify as and be left alone?

Focus on your own family, assholes.

Unisex restrooms!

What a fucking moron.

8/2/2008 6:51:32 PM


What this dickshit fails to realise is the bathrooms WERE ALREADY OPEN to transgendered people... whether pre or post op.

All the law does is stop fucktards like you insisting that, just because they were born one sex, they have to go into that sex bathroom EVEN IF THEY ARE NOW BIOLOGICALLY THE OPPOSITE SEX!

Seriously... he's trying to argue that f-m transgendered people should have to go into the womens bathrooms... YOU'RE TRYING TO FORCE A MALE INTO WOMEN'S BATHROOMS, YOU GREAT BIG PILLOCK!

@ ozznova...

I actually know a fundie that will not take his daughter into a mens restroom at Walmart to change her diaper because he is convinced that the other men want to see her"privates". Go figure.

Old Viking

If you want to keep the kids safe, teach them to pee in their pants.

Why is it always Peeping Toms? There are plenty of perverted women out there, but I never hear anyone rallying against Peeping Tammy.

8/2/2008 7:39:27 PM


So people are supposed to change their entire lives, become targets of public mockery and abuse, and the objects of screaming hatred by legions of such Bruces, because ... what, they want to watch the opposite sex pee? Maybe I'm just not into that, but it doesn't sound like a worthwhile trade.

Aren't most of them peddlers preachers and other straight, christian family men?

Allegory for Jesus

Oh, come on...let the Peeping Toms have just this one little chance for winning. It's been a hard century for them...what with the existence of porn and all that...makes the whole peeping bit a little less worth it.

Constipation ftw.

This seems like a somewhat sensationalistic, but not entirely unrealistic viewpoint about possible side effects of policy change.

Not very fundie at all.

"Opening up restrooms and locker rooms to anyone 'claiming' a different gender than the one he or she was born with is simply an invitation for Peeping Toms and sexual predators to take advantage of the chaos to endanger women and children,"

To be fair though, in order to obtain the privilege of using opposite sex bathrooms the "peeping Toms" and "sexual predators" do have to convincingly present themselves as members of the opposite sex.

I love fuckus in the family. Hello Bruce, you are creating a non-issue here. Actually children seem to be safer from trans-sexuals than from fundie preachers at "Jesus Camp" or GOP congressmen in the chambers of the House.

8/3/2008 2:40:11 AM


I bet you do everything in your power to avoid unisex bathrooms.

8/3/2008 5:46:11 AM


So in order to get a peek, these guys are going to dress up like women, risking being seen by someone they know and being harassed for the rest of their natural lives over it?

Somehow I really doubt it.

8/3/2008 6:14:25 AM


Yeah what if some girl comes in and sees me peeing and she rapes me?
