I am happily retired after 35 years of Labor and Delivery nursing. My passions now are two wonderful grandchildren, quilting on my HQ 16, sewing, and going where life takes me with my husband of 28 years. I am primarily conservative with moderate views on a couple social issues.

    Progressive Activist: Although I am pretty sure I don't share your political beliefs, I am delighted you are doing everything possible to expose Hillary and the machine which wants her elected no matter what.

    It's beyond my comprehension that any American would want either a socialist or a liar under FBI investigation to be our next President, but I applaud your efforts to expose the wrong doing on the Democratic side of the line. Far too often, in fact most times, the thought is that the Democrats are pure as the driven snow.....and clearly they are not.

    Who cares what race she identifies with?
    Is there a victim in that situation? We might be able to say yes, there is a victim if she took a job that should have been awarded to an actual black candidate or similar. Otherwise it is a media story designed primarily to gain ratings.

    In the case of gender police for bathroom usage in NC or similar states there certainly are victims and they are exactly the people that the republican legislators wanted to victimize...transgender citizens.

    Why is it okay to hide blatant and open discrimination behind the Bible in this country?
    I guess lying on job applications is okay now.

    Sara Quell 50mg and CBlover like this.

    Quote from CBlover
    It's very interesting that the thousands that agree with Sara Quell are the quiet ones. On here too. No one will come out and "like" anything I stand for either and i'm perfectly fine with that. But truthfully, I don't believe that the majority of Americans want a man in the bathroom with their little girl - whether you look like one or not.
    The quiet ones are often afraid to voice their opinions, because when they/we do we are considered less racist, or bigots or whatever.

    I agree with you....I think those who do not agree with this far outnumber those who do....maybe in a similar proportion to transgenders to those who are happy with being who they were at birth.

    Quote from ProgressiveActivist
    Transracial is an academic term to describe interracial adoptees.

    A transracial person is someone raised in a culture or race different from their own.

    Having been raised by her white parents and choosing to identify as a person of another race, Dolezal does not get to use this term.
    Well, she considers herself black, regardless of the academia. I personally think she is a whack job, wanting 15 minutes of fame.

    Quote from rnmaybe
    That's the whole point of the law it doesn't matter. I'm just curious can someone who is white claim to be black because they are transracial?
    That Rachel Dolazol (or something like that did.) And she was president of a local NAACP group, based on her lies about being black.

    A kilt is a very masculine cultural piece of useful clothing. In the day of the kilt, women wore long skirts....to the ground skirts. So if the men were to be wearing skirts, they'd not have their knees on full display.

    Love a man in a kilt!

    do you believe HB2 was intended to keep people safe? How do you think HB2 will accomplish that? Who is going to check the gender of these people?

    why bother me with these questions? As I pointed out, it was said before that you can't make the transgender person prove they are what they are....or not......so how can you prove the nefarious male in the ladies' room is or is not a transgender? It's how he/she feels about himself/herself on any given day......at least some people are going to interpret it that way.

    I am on record for not understanding it already....and none of these laws, or the discussion of them, makes it any easier for me to understand.

    I am also on record for wanting privacy......if I want safety....well, I have that covered.

    Here's there policy: Continuing to Stand for Inclusivity
    It does not allow for a man who generally identifies as a man to identify as a woman only when using the bathroom or fitting room.
    Yes, but as others have pointed out....who is going to challenge him or have him prove it?

    Target has never said people can use a bathroom or changing room dependent on "how they feel that day". What they've said is that staff and customers may use the restroom and corresponds with their gender identity. While there are many people whom at some point in their lives decide that their gender identity and biological sex don't match, it's not something that changes from minute to minute.
    Tell that to the guy on the TV today who went to Target to ask specifically about the policy. I am relating what he was told.

    Quote from Elvish
    I'm assuming that - like you - people in dressing rooms are not there to ogle but to shower/change. I find that I get through life with a whole lot less angst if I'm not constantly worried that people are out to get me.

    Harassing people in locker rooms was illegal before HB2. This stupid law changed nothing, and as far as the pervert in a dress argument goes, there has never been a magical forcefield keeping perverts away from women and children. A trans woman will not be in a locker room to ogle or harass you; if anything, a trans woman will do her best to keep her head down and take care of business so she doesn't get harassed or assaulted in a locker room, which is still the far likelier scenario.
    Target employees are telling men that they can use their fitting or changing rooms depending "on how they feel that day" so if you think that it is only transgenders in there, I think you might be mistaken.

    Wanting privacy doesn't mean I think people are out to harrass me. I just prefer to have privacy. Is that so hard to understand?

    Does anyone seriously think bathroom stalls are going away?
    No, but there are dressing rooms in some stores that have no privacy at all, not even curtains.

    Stephen Colbert on TV said:
    "I don't want to share a bathroom with anyone for two reasons.
    Number one and number two."

    Yep. Privacy.

    He was a Jehovah's Witness or SDA, too, and would go visit neighbors in his home town to share the Word as he believed it.

    Quote from Tweety
    I've never heard of Sarina, but I've seen a documentary about Buck. He's not having reconstructive surgery to change his vagina. He has a vagina. I'm a bit bothered that people have to be so black and white with it. "She has a vagina and is thus a female and must use a female's bathroom". Never mind he's on hormones, has a beard, has manly muscles, and has lived as a male for many years.

    My mind just can't comprehend it. Whatever anybody may think that makes me, I admit it is very confusing. For me. I am sure for others also.

    Can't we give just a little here? How many of you with daughters and grand daughters want Buck walking in there?

    I want privacy. In bathrooms with private stalls and doors, not as much of a problem. In open locker rooms, showers, changing rooms (like in some low-end clothing stores) no thank you.
