Are Gender neutral bathrooms a civil rights issue?

Are we being discriminatory for not allowing men into women's bathrooms or women into men's? 

 I mean if a man identifies himself more as a woman than a man, why should he be subjected to going into that nasty men's bathroom where he will no doubt feel terribly out of place, even a tad frightened perhaps at all the big, hairy men exposing themselves over urinals. (Sorry for the visual)  And a woman who feels like a man, well, why should we keep her from chumming it up with the guys while they do whatever men do in bathrooms? 

Yet even as I read back over my first question, I wonder if I've somehow been kidnapped and transported to an alien world. This certainly can't be earth or the United States where I grew up. Something is terribly amiss.

However, these bathrooms are popping up all over the place. My sister in law says they saw one in South Florida.  Obama even installed one in the Whitehouse. (No shocker there) In addition many college universities are putting these moral atrocities up throughout their campuses.  This, from the Harvard Crimson

The need for gender-neutral restrooms is profound, and their expansion is long overdue. Gender-neutral restrooms are critical for the safety and well-being of BGLTQ students, and it is vital that they are installed more widely throughout campus.  (Okay I get the B,G,T, but what is L and Q? I need to keep up with this. Pretty soon they will be using the entire alphabet, and I'll be completely lost!)

Of course there are still regular bathrooms at Harvard. For now. However, it has been reported, you may be relieved to hear, that a small college in New York City, The Cooper Union, has made every bathroom on campus gender neutral!  See how non-discriminatory they are! What a relief to know there are some people fighting for this crucial civil right issue!

I picture a young girl, perhaps 10 or 11, who enters a public restroom to take care of a rather desperate need, and upon coming out of the stall she finds a 6'2" linebacker for the 49ers--who by the way, has a sudden sense he might be a woman--pulling out his man-part to take care of business. But who cares if that little girl is traumatized and needs therapy for years?  She should understand that we cannot infringe on the rights of the few in order to uphold the rights of the many.

What's the big deal if some people take advantage of this "freedom" to satisfy their decrepit appetites for pornography as in what happened at the University of Toronto where

Male students within the University’s Whitney Hall student residence were caught holding their cellphones over female students’ shower stalls and filming them as they showered. 

Who cares if a man in Seattle entered the women's locker at a public swimming where young girls were getting undressed, and when women complained he announced that he had a right under the law to be there.  Why he probably woke up that morning and suddenly felt like a woman. We certainly don't want to infringe on his rights, even though the rights of the dozens of women changing in the locker were infringed upon.

Yet wait. That got me to thinking. What's to stop any pervert from putting on a dress and making the rounds of women's restrooms and locker rooms marked gender neutral and peeping at anyone he wants? Even taking pictures to put on the internet!  Well, in fact, nothing. What a field day the perverts in this country are going to have! Now they have the right to peep at women of all ages, from young elementary school girls to grandmothers, any time they want! Think of the fantasies they will have with your sisters, mothers, daughters and granddaughters.Isn't that grand?

Can someone please tell me what the heck is going on?



  1. It's sick and disgusting. It makes you want to stay inside forever or at least close to home. The morals in the USA are almost absolete. It's frightening that the evil wrongdoers are now the politically correct. God is coming soon. We need to be watching for Him. The signs are all coming into place. I don't know how much more evil the world can become but I don't want to be here to see it.

    1. Amen. We are near the end. All the more reason to tell as many people about Jesus and hopefully drag a few out of the darkness into the light.

  2. Exactly my thoughts too. I am saddened to see this unfolding. I am sad for the people who are so confused about their gender and who God made them to be.I can understand the struggle some people have with using bathrooms they don't associate with, but I am sad that this solution does indeed infringe on the rights of the other people using those bathrooms. I think of my daughters and their safety.
    Although, aside from Jesus changing and healing hearts and minds, it will not change. It's one thing to have separate bathrooms for BGLTQ, but to claim all bathrooms as 'gender neutral' is so very wrong on another level. Even if you are a supporter of BGLTQ. Because there is this safely issue - because this now allows any creep/pervert to just have to say they are the opposite gender and that gives them a free pass to be in a bathroom with my female child. I'm NOT good with that.
    Oh boy. A can of worms has opened.
    Sad indeed.

  3. I told my husband that just ten years ago, if I heard a law had to be passed that men use the men's room and women use the women's room, I would have thought it a joke. It doesn't make sense nor does it seem real. Yet here we are with such a difficult task of determining gender and what bathroom to use. If a joke, it would be downright funny. Unfortunately, it isn't a joke at all, and America as we knew it, is no more.

    1. We definitely aren't a Christian nation anymore, that's for sure. It does seem that the world is upside down and nothing makes sense anymore.

  4. I applaud you for this great post, Marylu.:) I know what you're talking about since this stuff pops in my Yahoo news page almost on a daily basis.:( Thank God I live in a country where such things are (still) unheard of. But who knows for how long...God forbid we should introduce the same perversions over here. I believe these "transgender"people are deeply confused individuals with psychological disorders and by stating that, I'm not a hater.:) Just in case.If you were born male, you have male organs, you ARE a man! If you were born female, you have female organs, you ARE a woman!God designed men and women differently, each gender with its own specific traits. A guy cannot claim that he's a woman trapped in a man's body! Not vice versa either. Postmodern culture/ psychology has explained everything by "genetic" reasoning while in fact they're disregarding the perfect design of God. First chapter of Paul's epistle to the Romans is crystal clear:Romans 1:18-32
    "The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

    21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

    24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

    26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

    28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them."

    Sadly, no one does this people a service by indulging them in their gender confusion.This is a spirit of deception from the evil one in order to twist their minds and emotions. How crafty of him to dress everything up in the garb of "civil rights"! These people need Jesus, not gender-neutral bathrooms.:)

    1. Yup. Those verses are clear. Thanks for posting them here. These people are so deceived and in my opinion, taken over by evil spirits. What a shame that our society lifts them up on a pedestal instead of helping them

  5. Thank you, MaryLu for this post. Just when one thinks she has seen it all and the moral state of the USA couldn't get any worse, it does. I feel as if the days of Sodom and Gomorrah are being revisited here in the USA - only much worse - however, as with them, God is coming to destroy the wicked. The one good thing I cling to in all of this depravity is the fact it is another sign of God's returning soon, as Debbie commented.

    The AFA is asking for support against the uprise of people against North Carolina's passing of HB2, a law overriding Charlotte's Law (which allowed people to use bathrooms corresponding with their gender identity). Previously, the organization has been able to override or change numerous immoral and discriminate laws.

    I'm wondering why there aren't bathrooms specifically for the BGLTQ - if they aren't concerned with subjecting others to their preferences (against their will), they surely shouldn't be opposed to subjecting themselves to one another - no matter their preferred gender identity.

    Love, prayers, and hugs - MaryLu!!

  6. Friday 15tb,
    "Afternoon, MaryLu .... and gals."
    I SO appreciated your post today, MaryLu ! Thank-you for having the forth-rightness to speak up, on such a disgusting but necessary topic !
    In answer to your 'final question' .... No, I cannot tell you what the heck is going on ... but it's sickening ! Our World is changing faster than we know. I for one, do NOT wish to use a "gender-neutral washroom" ... just because some man or woman is having an identity crisis over which sex they are. You are what God made you to be .... period !!! If I were in a washroom, and some man walked in ... I'd turn around and walk right back out. I'd be both frightened, and, startled.
    I cannot imagine some young female child, (nor anyone), being exposed to a "man" in the washroom ... a complete stranger, and, of the opposite sex.
    Things are just WAY out of hand, and so ridiculous !!! This "infringing on the minority's rights" deal ... is just plain stupid !!!
    Thanks for having the boldness to share.
    Take care, and, God Bless, In Him, Brenda

  7. Good afternoon MaryLu and my other sisters in Christ. A topic close to any mother or grandmothers heart. We are ten thousand times worse than Sodom and Gomorrah. A few years ago the Gay movement was disgustingly protesting at parades and screaming for equal rights and now they are demanding and it is sickening to see our presidential candidates kissing their feet, as is the Potus. Our young children are being taught in school things that we never even thought would be allowed in a class room. I mentioned something about a person being gay, and my 11year old granddaughter said,-- " it's ok -- he was born different that's all". No it is not ok and this is happening all over our country. We cannot say God or pray in public places but the government says any one feeling he or she is in the wrong body can use the same bathroom as our innocent little ones. we need to pray-- 2 Chronicles 7:14-- If my people, who are called by my name,will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and forgive their sin and will heal their land.
    But Father I do seek you everyday-- I do pray for our country-- no I don't pray for the blinded misguided ones who are walking this earth thinking they are in the wrong body. They need our prayers and --I - need to pray for their lost souls that are in such a dark place serving the slime bucket(my name for the evil one) and have not even the slightest knowledge they are lost. So I need to pray, my voice needs to be heard and please God, open the eyes of the lost and please protect our children.And our country also, restore us Oh God . I ask this in your Son's Precious Name of Jesus Christ.

    1. They are indoctrinating our kids, I agree! They have books about gays even in Kindergarten without asking Parent's permission. I agree, we must all humble ourselves and fast and pray for our great nation and for those who are so lost in the darkness.

    2. Elsie, if I were you, I'd gently try to approach the issue with your granddaughter by asking her this: What if we ALL were born different ( gays)? How we as human race would be able to reproduce then? Gay couples don't produce offsprings.It's a matter of common sense after all.

  8. You are such a special lady....great post! I was just telling Jack the other day that there are so many perverted men out there that will proudly don a dress just to get access to these bathrooms and locker rooms....sick, sick world we live in. Come Lord, come!

  9. I appreciate your post. I skimmed the other comments to see if you got a response to your query about what L and Q stand for. Based on the rest of the comment, I wasn't even certain if it was a serious question. If I am not mistaken, L is for lesbian and Q is for queer. If that is correct, it seems very strange to me that those involved in that lifestyle would probably get very angry if someone called them queer (which, by the way, was the common term used in my youth), but it's all right for them to use that designation.

    Here's another observation of something that has puzzled me for a long time. How many respectable organizations, who would be totally opposed to all the perversions mentioned in your post and the preceding comments, have held "woman-less beauty pageants" to raise money for good causes? I know I am wandering off into the weeds now, but I can't help questioning if those things have not been misguided and possibly even "softened" some people up for what is going on now. The enemy of our souls works in very subtle ways to get us to a place that what was once very, very wrong is no longer wrong. Think about it.

  10. I have been floored at this issue. Especially since those who believe in gendered bathrooms are being so maligned for it. As a counselor working with women who have been sexually abused, it scares the daylights out of me. I remember in my undergrad Sociology study we spent a large unit on the culture of roadside public bathrooms in my Deviant Behavior classes. What I learned in that unit was disgusting. This is naivety at its greatest!!! We are setting up large numbers of youth to be victimized! I have another concern. I am the mother of an adult son with autism. He cannot use the restroom by himself. One reason why I LOVE Family restrooms!!! I have had to bring him (under my supervision) into women's rooms. I get lots of looks and sneers. You'd think this would make me like the gender neutral bathrooms. I don't for two reasons. One, the cost for the many is much too great for the benefits of the few. Two, now my son will not only endure the looks of patrons who think I'm breaking a rule, they will now be speculating on his identity. I sometimes wonder if I should hang a sign "I'm Autistic and can't use the restroom on my own" around his neck." I hope if we gain anything from this, that more places will include family restrooms when they can.
