A popular cause célèbre of the American Left is the fight to overturn laws that make it illegal for men to use women’s bathrooms, changing rooms and locker rooms. As the Left typically does, it has been misrepresenting the position of people like me who want such laws to remain in place. In this post I will set the record straight.
I am Not Suggesting all LGBT People are Sexual Predators
I am a person who stands in opposition to laws allowing men to use women’s bathrooms, changing rooms and locker rooms. I am not suggesting all LGBT people are sexual predators and I do not personally know of anyone who holds the same position on this bathroom issue who does.
We have probably had laws on the books making it illegal for men to use women’s bathrooms, changing rooms and locker rooms for as long as there have been public bathrooms, changing rooms and locker rooms. The reason has been simple and it has nothing to do with transgender individuals or people who claim a mental gender that is different from their biological gender. We want women to be able to use public bathrooms, changing rooms and locker rooms without having their privacy violated or being at risk of being raped or otherwise sexually assaulted by perverts.
Women are at No Less Risk from Perverts in 2016 Than in the Past
Such laws protecting women have been around long before the word “transgender” became a part of the English language. Women are at no less risk from perverts in 2016 as they were when these common sense laws were passed.
Nonetheless, some now argue that these laws should be done away with because transgender individuals and people who claim a mental gender that is different from their biological gender are insulted by them. These same people argue that the incidences of men victimizing women in public bathrooms, changing rooms and locker rooms are small.
I Want Laws that Protect MY child and Wife to Remain in Place
I have a wife and a young daughter. I do not care how infrequently men (whether they be LGBT or not) victimize women in bathrooms, changing rooms and locker rooms. I want laws that protect my child and wife to remain in place.
Those who disagree with me believe that the wishes of the .1% [?] of people who are transgender individuals or people who claim a mental gender that is different from their biological gender is more important than protecting the almost 51% of the population that is female. This is an expression of one of the many unfortunate legacies of the 1960s. Before the 1960s we Americans believed that what was best for the majority of us was typically our guide for handling all things. From the 1960s onward we have become more and more focused on the individual and so have changed society in ways that are detrimental to the American people in general.
We Members of the Silent Majority Can No Longer Remain Silent
We members of the silent majority can no longer remain silent. We must not be intimated by the terrorist tactic of falsely labeling us “transphobic” or “homophobic.” We must fight efforts to overturn laws that make it illegal for men to use women’s bathrooms, changing rooms and locker rooms. We owe it to our wives and daughters. I look forward to vacationing with them in North Carolina this summer. See you there!
