I don't really care what people do; outlawing something because of what COULD potentially happen if someone abuses the system is not the American way.
Holy wow, the comments on this poll are ridiculous. Also, for the title of the poll, *their*. I don't necessarily agree with this question. It's a bit confusing to me. Do you think that transgender people should be allowed to the bathroom that their genitals match after surgery? Or just not at all, period? The person in your locker room could've had surgery or is taking hormones.
I think it's just fine and I don't see why people are so against this. They're clearly called transgender because they felt as if they were born in the wrong body and as civil beings, we should treat them as such rather than scaremongering over being sexually assaulted in the bathroom (has there been any incidents as such, I don't think so).
People are just scared. Stop being scared and use some logic. It's not a 'loop hole' for sex offenders. How would this stop them otherwise? There is no magic force field that prevents them from just walking in. Also, men rape little boys too. So the so called 'loop hole' does nothing in that regard.
Yes, since not all of them have had surgery, but many are going through different medications prior to surgery. I believe that if someone has such a problem with someone transgender in the same bathroom, they should use a single use bathroom.
Just let people use the goddamn bathroom and mind your own business "ITS A LOOPHOLE FOR SEX OFFENDERS" then how about instead of assuming a cis man is going to go thru the trouble of dressing up as a woman to spy on little girls, you focus on convicting sex offenders instead of excusing them (i.e. Donald Trump!) and leave legitimate transgender people alone. Let me put it this way: if you're not transgender, then you have no idea what transgender people feel. You have not experienced that intense emotional pain and discomfort firsthand, and until you do, you shouldn't be able to tell people who have experienced it how they should feel. You don't care about protecting women and girls. If you did, you would want your president in jail. You just hate transgender people. There is no excuse for blind hatred.
You should not be able to go in an opposite bathroom if you have opposite parts because it would be easy to just go into a bathroom, say your transgender, and spy/pray on people. This is a loop hole for sex offenders.
Use the restroom that corresponds with your biological gender.
I asked this because there is a "transgender" in my locker room.
It's so pathetic that we would ever allow a person who decides they feel there not who they are according to birth records to be allowed in the restroom. America has hit another moral low in allowing these ungrateful, selfish non Christian to have the audacity to ask for rights to allow them to have access to the bathroom of there "feeling" of who they feel they are, totally pathetic. The LGBTQPB should not have any rights for anything, they are an abomination to God and to all people who believe in the Christian way of life.
There are Stick figures on the doors For A Reason!
First off, the purpose of bathrooms is to relieve yourself. The genitals that you have do not necessarily matter. Granted, of course a Transgender man cannot use a urinal without some special device, however, he is still able to relieve himself without causing any unrest. Transgender women, too, will not and have not caused any unrest, much against any incorrect beliefs. There has not been one incident where a man, dressing as a woman, has entered a Womens' bathroom, and molested or raped a child. Absolutely no record of it. It is simply the media stirring unrest with the masses, through false accounts. Trans people just need to pee, like anyone else.
No offense to any person specifically, but I believe that transgenders have mental illness, and whatever gender you were born is what you are meant to be.
I agree with the first person. It's a loop hole for sex offenders.
No because for one I am a gay guy I have always felt more like a woman on the inside I even have people stand face to face with me and still think I'm a girl but I will not go into a woman's bathroom it creeps other people out it creeps me out because I have always went to the men's bathroom and all you need is some weirdo see a little girl go into the bathroom and him say hey I feel like a woman today I'll go into the women's bathroom, no it's best for men to be in men's bathrooms and women to be in women's bathrooms there is a reason why we have the 2 and it's not to be sexist or what ever it's to protect women from a random weirdo following her to the bathroom now when that happens we can't say anything because we are afraid we will be called sexist or something
What? Are you going to be a Hillary and let girls get raped?
The suggestion of basically allowing men into girls toilets under the umbrella of 'inclusion' is simply a ridiculous concept that came straight from pedophiles/rapists. If you're transgender, Then okay you can be 'transgender', But going to the bathrooms of the gender you were born as won't kill you, I promise! There is absolutely no reason for a transgender to go to opposite bathrooms because they wanna be that gender, God save us all, We're debating on such trivial matters as this when we have much worse problems to deal with right now in society.
