Charles [Barkley], when I walk into the women’s restroom at work, it’s called “sexual harassment” even if I don’t say anything to them. That’s because I’m attracted to women.

What do you call it when a gay man is in the locker room with men, Chuck? I’ll give you a hint: same thing.””

The goal is to allow the deviants, full, unhindered, access to the object of their sick obsession.

The solution: Unisex bathrooms for all!

Also, just for curiosity's sake: What do you call it when a gay man walks into the women's restroom?

So what exactly do you propose? Sexuality screening outside of toilets and changing rooms?

Honestly though, if you don't have issue with being naked in front of other guys, what difference is it going to make whether they find you attractive? And what makes you think they ARE going to find you attractive?

Women past the age of middle school stop caring about undressing in front of other women (Unless they're really self-conscious. I just remember all the girls changing in stalls in middle school and not caring in high school).

Grow up.

"The goal is to allow the deviants, full, unhindered, access to the object of their sick obsession."

I wish someone would allow you people full, unhindered access to an English class.

Also, most gay men aren't "obsessed" with other men, anymore than most straight men aren't obsessed with women.

you're not that attractive

5/23/2011 4:39:54 AM


The stated goal was that players should be judged on ability alone.

Everything you said beyond that is your over-heated imagination.

It's because of weirdoes like this that we still need separate restrooms!
You know what happens when the male janitor is working in the women's bathroom while some women are there? Nothing. That's because while he may be attracted to women, he doesn't get lewd thoughts from them pooping nearby. OP is the one who's not normal.

What's the matter? Afraid the big, scary queers using the same restroom as you might find you attractive and attempt to bum you while you're standing at a urinal?

Get over yourself. You homophobic straight guys bitch and whine worse than we gay guys do.

I find it both telling and disturbing that you say 'when' you walk into the women's restroom rather than 'if' as though it were a regular occurrence for you and not merely a hypothetical situation or singular embarrassing incident. Not everyone has your apparent distinct lack of control and scruples.

I'm not comfortable changing in front of ANYBODY, it doesn't make a lick of difference if a gay man is giving me the eye or if I'm changing in front of a woman that sizes me up like a chunk of steak. I will be self-conscious and maybe creeped the hell out if anyone's being obvious about their gawking but as long as everyone keeps their hands to themselves and knocks off any cat-calls the first time I tell them to it's all good.

The deeper issue behind segregated men's and women's changing areas is that women are terrified of being caught alone with someone that can easily overpower them. Simply being lusted after isn't the only issue and being in a room full of disinterested eunuchs doesn't lessen the perceived threat. Your attitude and seeming opinion that just being in the same room as something you find attractive is enabling predatory behavior would be a red flag that women would find threatening even if you were a paper-thin paraplegic with brittle bones. Mainly because it seems like you’re speaking from your own urges towards women.

Tell me, are you willing to compromise whatever tough guy image you think you have and explicitly state that you're afraid a single gay guy will physically overpower you and rape you up the ass with no effort whatsoever? Take it like a man, bitch.

The only people I've seen that fit the description of *obsessed* with gay sex are people like you, it's on your minds and the tips of your tongues nonstop and you go into graphic detail about it at the drop of a hat.

Actual homosexuals are as chaste and reserved as monks by comparison, and the fistful of nymphomaniacs that might come close to emulating the behavior you expect would likely find a cold shoulder from the LGBT community.

Mister Spak

You enjoy being in a locker room with men, don't you? You don't want to share. You want them all to yourself.

5/23/2011 5:16:10 AM


Uhh, no. It's not sexual harassment. A gay man is still a man. FAIL!

when I walk into the women’s restroom at work, it’s called “sexual harassment”

I've walked into a women's bathroom before both on accident and because the men's was occupied and I've never been accused of sexual harassment. I've also seen cleaning ladies in the men's room while I and other men were there. I tend to find that if you don't act like a complete pervert people are less likely to accuse you of sexual harassment.

That’s because I’m attracted to women.

If you're attracted to the idea of women pooping then I can see why they don't want you in their restroom.

The goal is to allow the deviants, full, unhindered, access to the object of their sick obsession.

No, the goal is equality. Tell me, is my aforementioned example of letting a cleaning lady into the men's room about fulfilling her sick fantasies or is it about allowing her to clean? There are practical reasons for both.

What do you call it when a gay man is in the locker room with men, Chuck? I’ll give you a hint: same thing.

Gay men ALREADY share locker rooms with straight men as most gyms don't come equipped with gaydar at the locker room's entrance. So chances are that if you go to a gym, a lot of gay men have already seen your cocktail frank >:) muhahahaha! But seriously, if you're that worried about people ogling you (as if you're even worth looking at) then change in the stalls.

5/23/2011 5:27:01 AM


I guess one would have to be sick to be obsessed with you.

5/23/2011 5:32:31 AM


This Ocean Charles:

the big man... HASS the answers

5/23/2011 5:37:33 AM


I seriously doubt someone like Charles Barkley would have to worry about unwanted male sexual advances. To be honest, I've never worried about it either and I've been in plenty of locker rooms. No one has ever put the moves on me.
Wishful thinking on Neoliberalnot's part?

Mrs. Antichrist

Solution: Stop segregating bathrooms.

5/23/2011 6:09:21 AM


What, so men should have to go through gay screenings before entering a public male bathroom?

5/23/2011 6:11:28 AM

gay deist

I can garuntee I don't have a sick obsession with this freak

5/23/2011 6:14:44 AM


lol I like it when people make this argument because it implies that they themselves can't control their own sexual desires. Also the Sam Kennison bullshit about how their neckbeard and Cheetos-stained fingers are somehow irresistible to gay dudes is always a real humdinger.

I mean forgive me but I think it's safe to assume that Charles Barkley, one of the greatest NBA players to ever lace up and surely on the short list of the best power forwards of all time, probably knows more about the dynamics of a locker room than Free Republic poster Neoliberalnot.

5/23/2011 6:15:20 AM


What the fuck is this crap supposed to be?

5/23/2011 6:15:21 AM


What part of your ass did you pull that from?

5/23/2011 6:30:41 AM


I would love to know why straight guys, no matter how unattractive they really are, assume that gay guys find them attractive.

5/23/2011 6:40:32 AM


I think this is partially misattributed, the top two lines are by devistate one four and quoted by Neoliberalnot. The third line is all his own fail.

5/23/2011 6:58:52 AM


"What do you call it when a gay man is in the locker room with men, Chuck?"

I'll take that one Chuck! It's called, "A daily occurrence for the last thousand years." My God! Is that where all the raped straight men are coming from? Oh wait, there doesn't seem to be that kind of problem at all, just the all-too-frequent gay bashing from the usual bunch of homophobic closet cases. How surprising!

5/23/2011 6:59:44 AM


At my work men walk into the women's restroom all the time, as the washing-up stuff is in there. None of the guys have ever been accused of sexual harrasment.

The goal is to play down the tension, and your sick obsession to their sexuality. Unisex restrooms are fairly common over here.

To us non-homophobes you're the deviants.
