Is there another way around the Gender Bender Bathroom Debates?

If I was a gender bender, which I am not, I was born male and I intend to die male. I think it is obvious that the people who bend their gender the other way should be able to find a bathroom. But as far as Gender Neutral, this has to be for adults only. It is impossible and illegal in all states for young boys to be in a women's restroom unless they are age 2. The same for young girls, age 2 or 3 going with daddy into the men's room. This is unthinkable. The thing is, mostly, I think if they create gender neutral zones they should not allow children to go in them. Only adults should be able to go into them. They are not the same as family rooms where a mother can take her child inside to change diapers and such. The bottom line is, if Gender Benders want to go to the potty, they need to go to the bathroom that is the same as their DNA is. If they have two x, (XX) chromosomes, they should go to the women's and if (XY), go to the men's. Children should be restricted from entering any form of Gender Neutral Bathrooms. What they do at home is another thing but public bathrooms, or restrooms should protect above all, the children from predators and I would rather not use public bathrooms anyway because they plain stink and the faucets seldom work. They are usually out of paper towels and the water runs out too slow. If any one realizes this basic fact, most or practically all public restrooms have private stalls and the bottom line is, if anyone acts inappropriate in the restroom like taking pics with their iphones, that is simply immoral, illegal and runs the risk of having themselves in a brawl.

There should be a way for others to take a decision through social media sites like myLot, twitter, facebook..etc.

I agree with your whole post. Unless a third bathroom is there for everyone with stalls.

They could just make gender free single bathrooms. But the lines would be enormous.

Really? Why? It only take a couple of minutes to go in, pee, wash your hands and exit the bathroom. Whatever else someone wants to do in there should have been done at home, anyway.

@DaddyEvil I'm just saying...so many people have to pee at the same time, I have seen lines to bathrooms before, haven't you?

@cindiowens I've never seen a line at a men's room. I have seen lines at the ladies' room, but I have always suspected lines form there because the ladies in question were having group meetings there, not using the restroom. All men suspect the ladies are always involved in group meetings because we can hear enormous amounts of talking issuing from any restroom where more than one lady enters at one time. I dare you to stand outside a men's room and hear anything said except a murmured, "Excuse me.", no matter how many men are in there! You won't ever hear more taking in a men's room than that even if five of us are gathered around one "station" using it! Well..... (grimace)..... unless a father is guiding his very young son in the intricacies of social etiquette in reference to using a bathroom when other men are present. I suggest you establish and then enforce rules putting the ladies' room off limits as a social gathering place and the lines would disappear!

The only thing that i feel to keep things safe for people is to have 1 bath room and it be for both as some places do. But i am not ok with a guy going into the bath room with my little girl as there is no real way to see if they are just pretenting or not.

Sure there is! You can ask to look. If he is "fixed" he will show you. If not, then you can call him a pervert at the top of your lungs! I guarantee you will have men come running to beat the crap right out of him. It serves both purposes, doesn't it? He got his potty wish and you got your safety issue addressed! Easy peasy!

@DaddyEvil LOL you are right there. All men are not happy about it that is for sure. I just seen a video the other day on facebook with a cop in the bath room inspecting everyone. It was a funny video but still that is just crazy.

I do not necessarily think that gender neutral bathrooms are a great idea, but I also do not think that the "if you are XX use the girl's room and XY use the men's room" is right, either. First, a person in transition will have the outward appearance of whatever gender they feel comfortable as, so they will look like a woman or man, even if their genitals might not have made the transition. Second, if they have had the surgery, then their genitals will also be of the opposite gender, so you are essentially saying that it IS alright for women and men to share the same bathroom.

Why do I feel like agreeing to this...if it is XX, it is women, if it is XY...it is men...perfect solution. Problem is, by the time the differentiation is over, the person would have peed in his or her pants.

I am very sad to read your responses and comments here, Vandy. I thought you were more open-minded and accepting than that.

@purplealabaster May be I am not getting it clearly. Are you trying to say that a transgender with male genetalia may have urinary system that is similar to women? I guess if that is so, then my stand so far is wrong and then I concede to their demands. I also do not understand Caitlyn Jenner in this context.

I just watched the most interesting video, @lookatdesktop ! I think you might find it interesting, as well... If you don't, you can always delete this response, since my other response agrees with you, but this one won't! I like to be aware of all facts that I can find on things before settling on an opinion... I obviously missed the boat on this issue, for which I apologize! Here is a video which gives statistical facts about this debate as well as many of the arguments I have heard surrounding this debate! It's worth watching, in my opinion... I will let you make your own decisions, though. I have never forced my opinions on anyone and have no plans to start now. Thank you!
Cristen lays out the facts about whether allowing transgender folks to use public restrooms they feel the most comfortable in puts women and children in danger.

So from what I see, the main thing that matters is privacy of each individual, regardless of gender, or gender identity. I see the historic reason for the gender divide and the social economic classes exclusivity and the black and white thing. It all goes under one big heading, Social Phobia.

@lookatdesktop That is what I took from that, too. As long as my privacy concerns are addressed, IDC who or what is in the next stall! If a woman wants to smell what issues from my nether region, let her sit in the next stall from mine!

I do agree that a transgender person should consider what a child might see when using the facilities. Most adults are careful about that, but not all are. Even when being careful, an inquisitive child can still maneuver around without an adult realizing it and see more than they should. (I just grossed myself out. Personally, I will leave a bathroom when a younger child is already there, or leave as quickly as I can after one enters the restroom. I refuse to take chances.) In a perfect world, there would be several individual bathrooms built instead of one for men and one for women, so nobody encounters another person unless the meeting is pre-arranged. (No, I don't think that should be allowed, either, but it does and will happen, no matter what others want.) Trans-gender people need to realize they are creating more of a problem for the rest of us, instead of expecting us to accommodate them. They should make the effort to keep problems from occurring, not add more problems to those already faced in a public bathroom. If they want to change their bodies to "fix" a mistake made by mother nature, that is fine, but the rest of us don't (or shouldn't) need to have that "fix" thrown into our faces. Instead, our society is shifting even more towards catering to those who inconvenience others with their demands, instead of telling them that since they wanted to change, they need to make allowances to accommodate us. Truth be told, I would prefer that groups of individual bathrooms be mandatory now. I don't LIKE needing to use a facility where I must smell another person's funk, or see something I am not specifically WANTING to see. (Yep! By that, I mean I don't think a person should finish their business and start towards the sink without putting their equipment away. I don't care if you are proud of what you have! I don't want to see it! You shouldn't have the right to MAKE me see it, either!) Not quite on topic for this discussion, but I still addressed the main discussion as well as a couple other items that should be addressed!

@lookatdesktop Thank you! I am hoping more people agree with me, though. I normally keep my big mouth to myself in this type of situation, but I don't understand the mindset that is forcing us to keep listening to debates over these bathrooms. It should be plain and simple, here and now. But people keep throwing in more stuff to muddy the water and everyone is arguing different aspects of the same thing. Fix the problem once and for all by throwing it back at the ones causing it and be DONE with it!

There has already been an instance of a grown man going into the ladies room and attacking an 8-year-old girl.

How very unfortunate. It is sad but it is likely these events will take place in spite of the current legislation designed to change the way we do our business. Perverts and Predators exist and we must keep our children safe by staying diligent.

I am in total agreement with you. We must protect our children above all. God please intervene in this very mixed up world in Jesus name Amen
