Bathrooms. Again.

The right is going back to an old standby; 'transgender bathrooms'. Remember Phyllis Schlafly hyperventilating about 'unisex bathrooms' in the seventies? (Oh yeah, and women in combat? Eeek.)

Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, says Obama's new non-discrimination policy will be an "open door" for gender-confused and cross-dressing federal employees.

"What's the Obama administration going to do to protect women in federal restrooms?" the activist asks. "Since men [wearing] dresses apparently are going to be protected under gender-identity provisions, what about the women in the restrooms in the White House and other federal buildings? What's going to be done to protect their rights?"

LaBarbera even wonders if there is going to have to be a new federal outlay for the building of new "gender-free, transgender restrooms."

What is with the rightwing and their bathroom fixations? Transference? Projection?

RAPE that is the fixation. It is pathetic this has to be explained. Got any idea how many women are victimized every day? Are you a women? - Nothing like a small room where women are alone with their pants down and the door can be jammed. Too bad our safety comes in second to some guys fantasy life in your priority list. And I am linked to you yet.

You have GOT to be kidding. Men wearing women's clothing in their office buildings are undergoing estrogen therapy preparatory to gender surgery. Trust me, rape (with themselves as the perpetrator) is the last thing on their minds.

Do you know any transgendered women? I didn't think so.

And who says only transgendered hormone therapy women are going to use this bathroom? Do you know any rapist or even their case histories? Rapist will dress up and do their deed in your rightous trap. Women have a right to demand their safety come FIRST. The only way you have any right to ask for unisex bathrooms is in addition to segregated bathrooms. Otherwise you are just another agent of the patriarchy putting male desires over the rights of women. Something MEN always do, hormones or not.
