 amanda1988 :  I changed schools a lot due to moving around the US, and I never had to shower other than after a swim unit either. In fact, most school periods are 45-50 min long, so there is barely time to change, do some physical activity, and change again without showering. I remember distinctly that we only ever did 15-20 min of swimming because of this.

I am embarrassed for you. 

Guessing from the way you are speaking to almost everyone in this conversation you are struggling in life.

NDTieTheKnot :  You’re an intelligent person (from what you say). Go back and read what you wrote, I honestly don’t have the time or desire to quote you. 

For someone so intelligent, you really don’t act it. You literally just said I was offended by what you said and that MUST be because I’m against trans rights? Do you even read before you type? How does me calling you out on insulting another poster relate to me not agreeing with trans rights? You are making yourself look like the least credible person here. Please don’t try to connect the dots to your advantage, it’s not working. I won’t even defend myself from you saying I must be against trans rights, because anyone on this post can read my comment to you and know it had nothing to do with their rights and everything to do with you jumping to childish defense standards.

ct2015 :  Correct me if i’m wrong here…

Did you or did you not say that non-trans people should be involved in the decision making process as to whether or not Trans people receive their basic human rights?

And then when I asked you whether the same applies to black people you said yes, no? I really thought the historical reference here might make you re-think your position for a moment, obviously it did not. 

You are essentially saying that people who have NO BUSINESS being involved should pretty much just take control of this situation, much like how white people decided on the rights of black individuals all those years ago, no?

If you do not get how ignorant that sounds than I cannot help you. What you are saying is trans phobic. Period.

 

YOURHANDINMINE:

Sorry you can’t handle a sarcastic comments. My sarcasm comes out big time when I am faced with such ignorance. But relax, really.

NDTieTheKnot :  

You are wrong, I said nothing about human rights.

FYI – people like YOU are the reason Trump won and people like YOU are the reason Trump will win again in 4 years. People are tired of people like YOU putting words in other people’s mouths, making assumptions, forcing people into a box. YOU said, unless you are trans, you don’t get a say. THAT isn’t how the world works.

Anytime we treat someone as other we are infringing on their human rights and marginalizing them. Decent human beings do not do this and decent societies do not allow this.

Whether it’s drinking fountains or bathrooms, the core of the issue is hate, bigotry, intolerance, and treating another human being as other, as less than. 

And this is not something I can have a rational argument on, because there is no grey area to me, you’re either a decent human being or you’re not. And if you are racist or homophobic or transphobic, then I simply can’t consider you a good person. Period.

ct2015 :  If you are not Trans you should not have a say in how Trans people live their lives. That is a truth, whether or not you want to see that.  You did not have to say anything specifically about human rights for me to know that you are only for your own rights, not the rights of the marginalized.

 

And FYI, Trump won because the education system in America failed.

anatheanalyst :  Hey, italianbride chick here. @ me next time 🙂 I’m loving your tolerance. How nice of you to tell me what you hope I do what to do with my body, because of your political preferances, and how they differ from mine.

NDTieTheKnot :  Which, i already said use the damn bathroom you want. We don’t need laws dictating who uses what bathroom. I never suggested you shouldn’t be able to use a restroom. I never suggested you should use some separate, dirty bathroom in the back of the building. I said use the damn bathroom you think is appropriate. I said its insane that it’s become a legal issue- this isn’t a civil rights violation or issue. There’s a bathroom available to you, just like there’s a bathroom available to me.

italianbride0508 :  WOW are you kidding me??? You had NO problem writing posts about healthcare and who deserves what and that govenments shouldn’t cover mat leave and that if a woman can’t afford to just NOT work while taking care of baby when its first born then she shouldn’t have a baby… pretty much stating that the joys of having a child and reproduction should only be for the middle class or higher. 

You are so clueless you don’t even know what civil rights… I mean thinking that transgender bathrooms isn’t a civil rights issues shows exactly how ignorant or dumb you are, not sure which one.

Why don’t you get off this site and your computer and go open your eyes about the world a little bit.
