Transgender bathrooms… I’m torn between laughing because you know y’all been going to the bathroom with transwomen since you were kids and you never even knew it and being sickened by the level of hate that I see spewed on the daily. Not to mention how gross it is that you are using your children as a way to make your bigotry seem okay.
Do you want to know how many reported crimes have been committed by transwomen in restrooms? Zero. That’s right. A big, fat zero. As a matter of fact, I can’t find any statistics at all for transgender people being predators of children. Actually, transgender people are more likely to be victims of sexual assault than the non-transgender.
You know who does molest children? 90% of the time it is people they know. Like that nice old man at church that gives all the kids a piece of candy. Or the softball coach who wants to keep your daughter after practice to help her with her pitching. Or that nice neighbor boy that sells band candy and walks his cute puppy by your house every afternoon when your kids are outside playing. Or their scout leader, or a family member, or… you get the picture.
I get it. You don’t want to go to the bathroom with transwomen. At least be honest about why and don’t use your kids as an excuse. Because if you are going to stop shopping at Target to “protect the children” then you better stop going to church. And take your kids out of sports. And all of their other extracurricular activities. And don’t let them play outside. Or go to school.
You know what… just go ahead and lock them in their rooms until they are 18 because 84% of sexual abuse occurs in someone’s home. You can cut a slit in the door and pass their meals to them through that. Visit them every once in a while and read them a story. But make sure you have another adult in the room.
Now, keep your sanctimony to yourself. I get that you are a born again, Bible with the notes written in the margin, pearl clutching Christian. Keep your finger waggin’ to yourself anyway. I don’t need comments from anyone pointing out another person’s sin. That’s between them and God. Kind of like how you judging other people and walking around with hate in your heart is your sin. Don’t forget that all sin is equal in the eyes of the Lord. Self-righteousness doesn’t look good on anyone.
