I did want to say that I found "College Allows Transgender Man to Expose Himself to Little Girls" to be a really over the top sensationalistic headline for this article. "College Allows Transgender Man to Use Women's Locker Room" would probably be more accurate. I don't think the college is like "Totally, expose yourself to little girls, we're down with that..."
Alissa was saying that Fox's title was over dramatic. I was saying that not having little girls in the title does not portray the situation. I would not be happy if this happened in front of me, but I would be livid if it happened in front of my girls.
If he is obeying the law then he is right. I don't agree but he's right.
I'm not okay with this. Gender Identity is something subjective and I think does open doors for pedophiles (we'll use men and young children here but I am well aware that's not the only instance) to use that as a defense to expose themselves. I'm not being insensitive for those with gender identity concerns but either way it is unfair and I have to be unfair to the adult than a child or another innocent person who may not expect it.
I would be in line with someone in the middle of a sex change to complete sex change being able to use the gender's room that they are assigning to. "looks the part" so to speak and makes others comfortable.
I'm not a fan of rules that allow for the comfort of one at the expense of most others.
Transgendered does not equal pervert. These are two very different things and the mere fact that a person is in the women's locker room does not mean they aren't a pervert.
Many male pedophiles could just hide out in the men's locker room/restroom to sneak a peek at young boys changing. Or expose himself to them.
Let's say this person who has a penis was sitting in the sauna with legs spread apart. Would there still be the outrage if it was the men's locker room and 6 YO boys might be in there? If so, then this isn't really about a person with a penis in the women's sauna; it's about the behavior itself. Would the public support his right to expose himself to young boys solely because he is in the same locker room as them?
*If* the reason for the public display or "claiming" to be transgendered is to get sexually aroused by it, then the person is clearly in the wrong and possibly committing a crime.
