What? You Don't Want Men Using the Ladies Locker Room? Bigot!

Charlotte passed a measure barring discrimination against the transgendered and the North Carolina legislature responded..  3/24/16 New York Times:

A day after Gov. Pat McCrory of North Carolina signed a sweeping law eliminating anti-discrimination protections for all lesbians, gays and bisexuals and barring transgender people from using bathrooms that do not match the gender they were born with, the battle lines were clear in a bitterly divided state.

On social media and in public rallies, civil rights groups, businesses and politicians expressed dismay at the law, which was passed by the Republican-controlled legislature and signed by the governor within just 12 hours during a hasty special session on i Wednesday.
As I pointed out a few weeks ago, the transgenders using the ladies locker rooms and bathrooms are already sources of serious problems.

My wife and I belong to a Methodist church in North Carolina. She went to a Maundy Thursday service and the pastor giving the sermon changed from his original sermon to one about passing that law! We are not happy!

In the first place, we appreciate the law and in the second place, in our opinion, that issue has no place in a church service, let alone during Holy Week!

My idea is to tell the would-be T.G. person (probably male, switching to female), "We'll accommodate your wishes, "Next Week", as soon as we expedite the surgery. Prepare to loose those unwanted appendages!" I think you'd see a few of the would-be T.G.s change their minds!

Jim: The illness in question is not just an excuse, but a serious delusion. I have a relative who lived in his car for five years saving up his money from a bad job to pay for travel to Bangkok for surgery.

Clayton, I agree. The fact that people want to be or think they are another gender is no more valid than a person wanting to be another species (and those people exist). We know how to positively determine the gender of a person. As lefties are want to say, "The science is settled!" I read that the suicide rate for those who had "gender reassignment surgery" is 40% higher than those who did not have it. These people deserve our sympathy and need therapy.They don't need to be skulking around our wive's, daughter's, sister's, or mother's bathroom. This is just another case of politicizing an fringe issue with the desire to turn civilization upside down.
