A New Law In Colorado

That will make it illegal to prevent a person who has decided to be the opposite gender from going into or using facilities designated for the opposite gender. In other words a man who has decided (not necessarily looks like) that he should be female can use the female facilities and anyone who should try to stop him would face huge discrimination fines. The Colorado legislature has decided that this is the best way to handle transgendered people and is paying back the gay billionaire, Gill (I believe is his last name) for helping them get into office.

Now this will open up public restrooms for all types of pedophilia and possible attacks on women because a man only has to say he thinks or believes he is a woman to use the facilities and no one will have the legal right to challenge him. I didn't say all transgendered people are pedophiles or rapists, but this law is so broad offering no protection for the majority of people, women and children, in CO. And it won't stop there!!

By the way, just because a man cuts his wanker off and takes hormone suppressing shots with female hormones, it will never make him a woman and vice verse for a woman wishing to be a man. The DNA in each and every cell determines a person's gender at conception PERIOD. So you can dress whatever way you wish but just because you look like a girl doesn't make you one, mister! There was no mistake.

A person can grow up feeling different from others of the same sex and still remain of that sex and well within the correctly defined bounds of that same sex. Society decides sometimes wrongly on how a boy and girl should work, play, think etc and to some extent some of it is nature but a small part. But a sensitive boy who is not the rough and tumble athletic type is still a boy, not a girl trapped in a boy body. That is then stereotyping what girls are like when you do that. And a rough and tumble girl should not be made to feel that she should be a boy or act a certain way to be a girl because again you are stereotyping the other sex by defining it as opposite of what you are. Do you see that or no?

If I say, as a female who happens to be extremely athletic or enjoy the hunting etc and I say "well obviously I should have been a boy", then I am defining what maleness is by the things I am doing rather than accepting that girls also enjoy those type activities and can be fully female.

Our whole society has gotten things upside down in this gender identity thing. What does it mean to be a boy or a girl in the US? If you are female and like particular things and another female likes opposite things can't they both be female? Why determine one is more masculine therefore, one of the females should have been a man? Same for men. Isn't that truly the basis for tolerance, accepting the broad definition of what is femaleness and maleness as opposed to accepting as equal someone surgically changing themselves into the opposite sex? Because DNA says you are still the one sex before the operations.

This is absolutely crazy to allow people to refine their gender. It isn't even scientific to do so!! Wouldn't it be more beneficial to counsel the person regarding the trauma from the childhood or the issues of nonacceptance the person faced as a child? It would certainly be more sensitive and less stereotypical of one sex or the other.

I mean really it is sexist for a man to just decide he can be a woman by shaving every part of his body, cutting his wanker off or taping it back and dressing in froo froo clothing to "look" like a girl!! That really should be totally insulting to the feminist movement. It is more to it. When a man goes through the monthly hell of a menstrual cycle then maybe we can talk, mmm'K?

A person at my work went from he-to-she. It was a long process and...uhhhh...different for everyone.

The person was a jerk as a male. And now, less of a jerk as a female. I can't tell if the jerk part was all the pent up anger.

Shrug. A subject I don't wanna explore.

I knew a transgendered male turned female at work. She did not look very feminine, but felt she was totally a woman, and in many ways was more "feminine" than me. I never minded using the restroom facilities when she was there, and she had some great makeup tips. Although we were never friends, just work acquantances, I learned to look at her for the sweet person she was inside, and not judge her by her appearance.
I agree any law that is too broad is dangerous. But I also believe that people have a right to happiness, and as long as they are adults and not hurting anyone, who are we to judge?
