Why We Need to STOP Pretending the Trans Bathroom Wars Are About Peeing

Written by Judy Rice on April 17, 2016

Have we officially lost our minds? We are truly living in a very confused culture when we can’t figure out that transgenders should not get to run our restrooms and locker rooms. Does anyone with an ounce of common sense really believe this is only about “urinating?” Play along for a moment…

1. In a public place, what bathrooms are generally most crowded? Answer: Women’s
2. Are male and female restrooms almost always built fairly close together? Answer: Yes
3. Once you find one restroom it is fairly easy to find a restroom to accommodate the opposite sex. True or False? Answer: TRUE
4. Many stores already have family restrooms or restrooms that are gender neutral. True or False. Answer: TRUE!

So why is it necessary for men or boys that still have their male genitalia to come into a women’s bathroom to “pee” when they can “pee” a lot quicker simply using the male restroom? Why do transgenders feel it is necessary to urinate in a room full of women and young girls that are committed to their God-given gender? Let’s step back into the real world for a moment… I think it is far more common for a female to sneak into a male restroom, just because they are generally less crowded. From time to time in my younger years, I have “stood guard” for a friend or two that just couldn’t wait. Men and boys usually don’t have to wait long at all and if they do, well, in the real world I have lived in, males I know would just, take care of business wherever they can! It’s not about urinating folks and we are all smart enough to figure this out.

This is pure lunacy. Why should folks that still haven’t committed entirely to their imagined gender, get to decide what gender they want to take on for a day, a season or any amount of time, get to make the people who already are committed to a gender uncomfortable or possibly put them at risk? I read in Genesis 1:27: “So God created man in His own image; in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” This verse is clear, unless we now think we know better than God Himself. God creates people either male or female and both genders are distinct and should be treated as such. I truly feel sorry for the child that has misguided parents, guardians, friends or anyone that doesn’t try to help him or her identify with their God-given gender.

Isn’t it obvious that this new “trend” is going to cause serious problems? Just wait. Since when are we so completely trusting of our fellow human beings? Don’t we know better than to open this door of complete craziness? When I read this: “But Jesus did not commit Himself to them, because He knew all men, and had no need that anyone should testify of man, for He knew what was in man,” (John 2: 24-25), I can see that even Jesus Christ trusted no one and didn’t place His trust in people. That should tell us something.

I am the mother of a mixed set of triplets, two boys and one girl. I remember very distinctly when my boys decided that they were too old to go to the women’s bathroom with my daughter and me. They were still quite little and it was quite scary to allow them to go by themselves. I trusted no one and laid down the rules. I don’t think my husband ever took my daughter in a male only bathroom. It just didn’t seem right. Why put a child in a position like that? Imagine our young daughters in restrooms and locker rooms with men and young boys. Isn’t this just wrong? That kind of careless behavior is simply opening the door for some serious problems and we all know it. Why can’t we just say “No?”

It won’t stop here. I just read an article about a man changing himself into a dragon? What bathroom does he get to use? Is he still considered human? I read another one where a young girl said she was a fox. This entitlement world we live in is straight up dangerous. We now think people are “entitled” to be whatever gender they want to? This is over the top ridiculous. Time to say enough is enough. Stop the insanity.
