The fight over the LGBT rights issue really has come to a head with the so-called “bathroom laws”. Since these laws started to become vogue on the right, we have seen people absolutely lose their minds over them. Some, mostly on the left, call them bigoted legalized discrimination laws. Some, mostly on the right call them “common sense” laws.
The fact of the matter is that these laws have had a real impact on how we treat each other. It has also brought out the craziest among us. When Target announced that they will allow transgender people to use the bathroom of their “gender”, the right-wing went absolutely nuts. They started a petition to force Target to stop their “inclusive” policy and threatened a boycott of the store. As of my last look, there have been about 1.2 million people who signed the petition.
The major argument on the right is that allowing transgender people to use the facilities that match their gender as they are rather than forcing them to use the facilities that matches their birth certificate will allow predators to enter the facilities by claiming to be a woman. Of course that is total nonsense, but stupidity is part of being part of the ultra-right wing.
At Target, so-called Christian Men are hanging around women’s facilities to “protect” the women who use the facilities. The very fact that they are causing more fear among women using the facilities doesn’t seem to bother them. Apparently these perverts love standing outside women’s bathrooms so they can ogle the women who use them. Yes, I said perverts because that is precisely what they are.
The Conservative Christian movement is full of perverts. They stand outside women’s bathrooms for no particular reason. They stand in front of abortion clinics and hurl abusive insults and threats against employees and patients of the clinics. They hurl insults at gays in general. They have become the standard bearers of “men’s invincibility” stupidity. That makes them perverts in any sense of the definition of the word.
These are the same people who want every woman to be exactly what they want them to be. They make up stupid rules about dress codes in our public schools. They make stupid rules about how women are supposed to behave in public. Namely not being too “enticing” to men so they won’t get raped. They teach their daughters how not to get raped, but don’t teach their sons that raping a woman is unacceptable and even criminal.
They tell their daughters that “boys are only after one thing.” But don’t tell their sons not be after that “one thing” without the woman’s consent. We see rape problems at all of our college campuses, even so-called “Christian” colleges. When the woman reports the rape, she is the one victimized again by being told she shouldn’t have dressed so “scantily” or have drunk so much alcohol.
The men accused of raping the woman seem to get a free pass because, well, he is a man and after all, “boys will be boys”. Boys get a free pass for getting so drunk they can’t even stand up, but if a woman gets a little drunk and gets raped, it is her fault because she shouldn’t have been drinking in the first place.
We place our children is “gender specific” roles from the time they are born. Boys get cars and trucks to play with. Girls get dolls. If a girl wants to play with cars or trucks they are considered as having something wrong with them. In a word, women are taught by their own parents to “fear men”. They are taught that they are to be subservient to men. They are taught to protect themselves from rape. They are taught not to “entice” men by dressing “properly”.
All of these problems do not take place in the bathrooms in this country. They occur OUTSIDE of the bathrooms. They are problems that are reinforced by the so-called Conservative Christians. This is how they want our women to live. This is how they keep control of “their women”. This is perversion at its worst.
Why is it just fine for a mother to take her small son into a women’s bathroom and yet when a man takes his small daughter into a men’s bathroom, he is exposing her to “predators”? That is the simple example of just how differently we treat our boys and girls. As a result, these he-men of the Conservative Christian movement see fit to stand outside the woman’s room of stores like Target to “protect” their women folk. They are simply perverts feeding their sexual fantasies, and nothing more.
Just how are these he-men going to tell if a transgender woman is using the “wrong” facility? If a person dressed in women’s clothing, looking like a woman, enters the facility, how are these he-men going to know if that person is a woman or a transgender woman? They won’t, and that is a simple fact. Therefore, unless you are waiting for your own daughter, spouse, or girlfriend, there is no reason to stand outside women’s bathrooms unless you are some kind of pervert.
Women are the target of sexual harassment and attack on school campuses, on the street, at their jobs, on the Internet, in their own homes, in ANY public place. Yet nothing is being done to protect them in these places. Why? Because it is mostly the perverts hanging out around women’s bathrooms who are the most guilty offenders of these attacks and harassments.
I also find it totally interesting that the states with the most “porn” and especially “LGBT port” consumption on the internet are the very states that pass such anti-LGBT laws. Apparently, it is okay to ban them in public, but they can’t get enough of them on the internet for their own perverted fantasies. Seven of the top ten states with the most porn consumption are all in the southern Republican controlled states. The very states passing “bathroom laws”. Amazing!
No, Conservative Christians have no real religious beliefs. They have no morals. They have only control, hate, and bigotry in their hearts. That is not “being Christian” that is being perverted! As a veteran I believe there is nothing more un-American than denying other people their civil rights. When any group denies another group their civil rights they are committing treason in my mind.
Even one of the leaders of these perverts admitted that when he ran for President. Ted Cruz said he was a “Christian First and an American Second”. That is treason no matter how you slice it. He is admitting that the laws of this country are secondary to something else. He is admitting that his allegiance to this country is secondary to something else. That is totally un-American and their actions are nothing short of terrorism.
And, the “shirts” keep marching along!
