Charles County Democratic Delegate C.T. Wilson, who is also an assistant state’s attorney in Prince George’s County, says the measure would “enable predators.”

“They (sexual predators) will certainly put on a dress, and go into a bathroom to get what they want,” Wilson said during the debate.

“It’s not necessarily something that happens every day. That doesn’t mean it’s not a realistic fear, especially to me.”

Considering that Delegate C. T. Wilson is a man, I'd like to know what his hobbies are that make this a realistic fear, especially to him.

Openly gay House member:“Do you actually think that somebody who was born in a body that doesn’t align with their gender identity, and is going through the suffering and hate that is heaped upon them in this country…is going to go into a bathroom and expose themselves, to our precious women and children, who we think are so vulnerable to this kind of attack?”

That is extremely poorly argued. No one thinks the person in the "wrong" body is going to use this law to frighten the horses.

The fear is that str8 male predators will say they are women to get into women's bathrooms and then perpetrate.

There's no excuse for not answering the fundie bigots' arguments better than this gay politician did (not.)

Right. That sort of thing is your right as her father. Right?

(Not that anyone thinks for a moment that you have had intercourse with an adult female, family member or not, ever.)
