i never intended to refute your argument. I simply found the topic you brought up about teachers hiding crosses interesting, did some research, and commented on it.

English please! I have stated that non-homosexuals have had no issues, in most cases, with showering with homosexuals in the past. Thus the sexual issue, that Kitten has encouraged, is mute. I have been arguing that it is body part issue...underage females don't need to be exposed to male body parts. Are there homosexual females in those showers...sure...but they have the same body parts. Society has divided up showers by body parts not sexuality, making Kitten's point mute. However, I took a step forward and stated that if you believe you are a woman trapped in man's body, and need to shower in a community locker room, then you should protect others that may not respect your decision. Just cover up for common good. Unfortunately, there are some that need to push the issue and force others to GROW up before their time.

Disagree with me..I don't care. This transgender student pushed the issue on changing society. She was wrong. There was nothing wrong with sharing the same locker room while remaining private. The goal is to take one step forward without taking two steps back...unfortunately, she took two steps back....no 6 year old female needs to see a male penis in a woman's locker room.

what some feel is offensive, others may not. Would you find it offensive for a woman who has Clitoromegaly nand their clitoris that is 30to 40mm in length, if they were to shower in a locker room where young girls could view them naked?

Hyperandrogenism, excess blood levels of
androgens or symptoms indicating
hyperandrogenism. Androgens are
hormones such as testosterone that, in
excess quantities, cause such symptoms as
hirsutism and acne. In more severe cases,
"virilization" may take place, including such
symptoms as clitoromegaly (an enlarged
clitoris), balding at the temples, voice
deepening and muscle growth.

Perhaps we might use the example of a woman at the gym who has complications from the above condition when determining what would be acceptable so others wouldnt be uncomfortable

As kitten would say...apples and oranges. Totally different than a female, born in a males body. That male...err female has decided to, in this locker room, their body to innocent individuals. According to reports, flaunting it at times. Totally different then what you described.

Why are you posting unrelated stories? The term for your tactic is fearmongering, and it's a terrorist tactic.

i thought the fearmongerers claim that trans equality laws would allow any man to legally enter a female bath or locker room.
That doesn't seem to be the case as these non trans guys wewe arrestid.
The current story about collene Francis seems to be the only questionable event i have found concerning transsexual women

I only said questionable because after much research on her, there is info that colleen might not belong in a locker room at all, reguardless of her ststus. The ites that have this questionable info, it appears that their links to where their info originated, no longer work. They also state that collen's facebook page has been taken down. So, it seems to be hard to verify anr facts at this time

Anna brings up several good points. Who is decide the mental state of the individual claiming to be transgender? Do they need a doctor's note? Do they need to prove they are transgender? Who's to believe that Colleen is actually transgender and not some pervert trying to get views on innocent females? How do we protect our innocent among us from those that would take advantage of the system? With that said...I don't have any proof that Colleen is working the system and not transgender but I do question her actions by exposing herself, and according to parents flaunting it, to innocent individuals. But then, sexual organs are just waste disposals and Colleen should be showing in the proper 'body' part locker room.

The research shows that female sex
offenders, once considered to be very
rare, is more common than previously
realized. Depending on the nature of the
offense, the percentage can run quite
high. The myth that most female
offenders acted with a male partner has
also been shattered through ongoing
research.

According to Law Professor Kay Levine, it is
estimated that 1.5 million girls and 1.1 million
boys are victims of female sexual abuse in the
United States

Trans women are being watched very closely but no one gives a natal born woman a second thought. Hoe would we check the mental state of natal born women who use locker rooms?
How do we protect our innocent from a natal born female pervert?

Another thought is that if trans people are required to use facilities that match their sex organs, then this trans man would change in the womans locker room
http://polkaostrich.files.wordpress.com/2009/...

Now how young giela and othet women going to react to this man?

Maybe we should just discriminatie against all trans folks and refuse them access to any non trans facilities?

Only questionable event because only one major university, and health club, that I know of, has given transsexual women access to the opposing locker rooms. BTW...the local YWMC, in Evergreen's area, doesn't allow it.
