Should we stop using male and female restrooms? Just have a single room for all?

MelissaBlaze
Emmarie

If we are to allow biological males to use the women's facilities and biological females to use the men's facilities, what is the reason to keep restrooms separate at all? Wouldn't we be better off just having one large restroom? This would end all debate about which room transgenders can use. Also, this would benefit women since there would be more open stalls available. I'm sure everyone has seen women waiting in a long line just to pee while there is rarely a line for men....

Is God necessary for objective morality ?

JordanNichols
vi_spex

I believe that in order for objective moral values to exist there must be a God who sets the intial standards by which each of us are guided to follow by. A set of values that transcends us so that we all may know what it is to be good or bad in our actions. Athesit can not prove that an action is good or bad because without a divine law giver morality simply becomes a set of opinions, each individual may have their own beliefs about what is truly right or wrong....

But c'mon peoples, think about it. Wheels is in a FRACKING WHEELCHAIR!! Deadpool may be a heartless bastard, but even mercenaries...
