Read this story first and let me know what you think. Click this bullshit right here.
I’ll sum it up for you. So there’s new legislation that will allow transgender people to use the bathroom of the gender that they identify with. Some prick in Washington decides to test the limits of this new law. He goes into a women’s locker room, DRESSED AS A MAN, and starts to undress. They yell. He gives no shits and says under the new law, he has a “right” to be there, which technically he does. THEN, comes back and pulls the same shit when there are children and teenage girls undressing in the locker room.
So…how far is this shit going to go? What I’m trying to understand is why no one sees that this new ‘movement’ is sexist as fuck! It’s asking biological woman to be gender neutral so that men transitioning into women can feel more “comfortable” and “secure” with who they feel they are…Cuz their “feelings” supersede my menstrual cycle right?…and to keep it all the way real, NONE of this shit is about woman who consider themselves men because if it were, we wouldn’t be having this convo. They’d just have to suck it up and deal with it in silence because as women, we don’t really matter. Case in point, the LOOPHOLE that this gives predatory men. Did anyone consider how biological women would be impacted by this law?
The argument that I’ve been hearing is that transgender women feel threatened when they use the men’s room so they want to use the women’s room. I can understand that, BUT actual biological women aren’t supposed to be fearful of the same swinging penises you are? We’re supposed to be uncomfortable so that you can be more comfortable? Seriously?! Such a small percentage of the population to be demanding that other’s give up their rights in favor of their own. What entitles you to that?
Me personally, if a man with makeup, dress and all that shit comes into my locker room while I’m changing and takes their ass to a stall and handles their business, I could care less. What concerns me is men, like the guy in the article claiming that they are transgender, coming into my bathroom/locker room. This will happen and who are you to tell me that as a woman, I shouldn’t be fearful of that and feel vulnerable?
I remember going to use the bathroom and there was a drunk man, peeing in one of the stalls next to me. At first I was petrified, then I got angry and started yelling at him to get the fuck out! I was angry, I felt so violated. He apologized and bought me a drink when he came out.
Did I mention that he was black? I’m wondering what will happen when black men start using the “I’m transgender/transitioning, I have a right to be here” shtick that the white guy in the article got a away with. I’d like to see a brotha pull that shit in a bathroom full of white women. I can see the hashtag now #blacktransgendersmatter Maybe that’s what it’ll take for the powers to be to see that they need to ‘protect their women.’
…and don’t get me fucking started about how this whole shit is CLOAKED in white privilege!..and while applauding Caitlyn Jenner and seeing her as the new, courageous, and familiar face of the transgender movement, please remember that this bitch was a rich, privileged white man for 65 years of his life and benefited from the oppression of other minority groups. Please don’t look to her as an accurate representative of the struggle…
And please…please…please…don’t fix your mouth to make comparisons to the plight of African Americans in America…don’t even do it. If we were all one in the same, there wouldn’t be gay black people, transgender black people, and just plain ole’ black people. They’re all completely different struggles grouped into a cluster-fuck of struggles centered around the color of our skin. When we walk into a room we’re judged by our hue, not how we choose to express our sexuality. No sexual preference or gender identity issue will ever truly take away from the glory that it is to be a white man in America. Do you know how many gay white men I’ve heard use the word NIGGER? Too many to be hopping on the “NIGGER” bandwagon every time someone tells them they’re not entitled to something.
Excuse my rant. I just read that article and was infuriated!! Women have rights too! Hell, some of us don’t even feel comfortable passing gas in front of our dates…I’m supposed to suck it up and feel comfortable changing my maxi-pad, peeing, and pooping in front of a stranger that could, at any moment, kick in my stall door and violate me? Just as I rallied for my LGBT friends and their right, as tax paying citizens and human beings, to love and marry who they love; I’d expect the same courtesy as a biological woman to not be treated as a second class citizen.
…I just don’t understand. If you look like a man, use the men’s room. If you look like a woman, use the women’s room. Why is this shit being complicated all of a sudden?
