Four years ago, on the eve of the last presidential election, I wrote in this space of how the country has spent much of the last three decades "re-litigating" the 1960s, arguing over the changes wrought in that decade.

what the heck are you talking about?
we are talking about a 47 year old man who thinks he is a woman, using the ladies locker room and having his junk hang out in front of minors...
and you are talking like he is a freedom rider....
We cant even agree to keep a 47 year old man's junk out of sight of small children?
If that were all that you were talking about, we would be in agreement. But you aren't.

I'm focusing upon our area of disagreement while ignoring the part upon which we agree.

Didn't (can't) you notice?

You are combining the misbehavior of one person with policies on many other issues.

Actually it was supposedly in the sauna. I've never seen a sauna that allowed children in it.

Again your reading skills simply don't cut it.

Vanity thy name s reaction perhaps ?

fine. but this was a locker room that was used by small children at a Swim Academy.
Is the aberration that this dude with junk is somehow a woman?
It just a bad decision to let people decide their sex and to elevate that persons' comfort over the comfort of EVERYONE else...(in the name of equality, no less)

I have. Lots of them. Scandinavia. Russia. Japan. All are multigenerational and clothing optional. Only Russia's tend to be sexually segregated.

it seems pretty clear how people here would strike the balance in this situation...
did you see them say it was the 17 y/o girl's fault and that it was likely a set up?
I mean, in terms of speaking of equality...how does the balance of EVERY other person using a locker room compare with ONE dude WITH JUNK calling himself a woman feeling better about using the ladies locker room?
I do think this speaks to larger issues...

Here in the US. Different story generally, especially in public facilities.

Not something we didn't already know. But still the doors on those things are terribly heavy and no child under the age of 12 or so should be allowed in one unless accompanied by an adult for safety reasons.

Physicians usually recommend only brief times in saunas for little ones. Their small body mass changes temperature so quickly that they can be harmful.

Supervision of little kids is simply the rule ... or should be.

Conservatives say one thing while practicing another .
The south is wall to wall with Republicans who scream about Democrats while using every type of government support there is.

The anti-Obama bible belt states probably get more public assistance than any area in USA.
How nice it must be to be a complete hypocrite.

"Mitt Romney Supporter Turns To Obamacare"

Melissa Littlewood of Sarasota, Fla., voted for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney because she thinks the government is becoming too expansive, too intrusive, and too burdensome for small business owners such as herself.

At the same time, President Barack Obama's health care law, reviled by conservatives as an expansion of big government, may be the only way for Littlewood to get affordable health insurance.

"I think we're in a society that is on a runaway train," Littlewood said. "I think I'm about to see what that is all about."

Polls show that Americans, collectively speaking, are as ambivalent about the law as they are about the president himself. Under Obama's watch, the Affordable Care Act's major provisions are supposed to take effect in 2014, extending insurance coverage to 30 million Americans whether they like it or not.

Littlewood knows from personal experience that the health care system's status quo is no good. She has owned an automotive accessory business for 34 years. She said her company's group health insurance policy, which covers her and one employee, costs $1,460 per month. If she renews the policy for another year, its monthly premiums will go up to $1,553.

She said she can't afford it anymore, but she has no other choice for obtaining coverage, since no insurance company will offer an affordable plan to a 59-year-old breast cancer survivor.

"I think I'm being discriminated against," she said. "I am healthy and I am tired of getting beat up each year with the high insurance costs."
