    Being transgender DOES NOT make you a pedophile! Being a pedophile makes you a pedophile. Pedophile's don't need to change their appearance to get children since, OBVIOUSLY, they've been doing it for all these years. Also, what about the pedophile that's already using the bathroom with your SONS and daughters?? What is this misconception about transgender people being pedophiles?? I'm not understanding. They have no higher likelihood of being a pedophile than you. You know what I think is the funniest part about all of this. Some men are in transition to becoming fully man and they look like men, they act like men, basically they ARE men, but they still have the genitalia they were born with he can't use the man's bathroom. So the big dude playing football that you don't want to be in the girls bathroom will still be there!!! 😂😂😂😂😂

    Race and gender identity are different. Of Course but you know what's not. Discrimination, don't cherry pick on who you think deserves equality or who's situation is worse. Discrimination is discrimination

    I'm not against transgender at all it's just if ur a girl use a women's restroom and if ur a man then use the men's restroom. I feel as if this is just even more confusing to my children.

    lol comparing racism to stoping boys from using the girls bathroom only bolsters the point that liberals today have NO idea what true racism is really like.

    How about unisex bathrooms?They're already used in some situations here in the US, and if we use them universally then all this arguing can stop. Many other countries use unisex bathrooms almost exclusively and don't seem to have trouble with it.

    Women used to not even be allowed to use public restrooms. They were supposed to go in their pots at home because men thought it was yucky. Then when the industrial revolution happened, they gave women their own bathrooms so they could "gossip." The entire reason we have two bathrooms in the first place was because of sexism.

    You can't compare that made up BS to racism... People were actually being hung from trees... How can you compare that to a man wanting to use a womans bathroom!!! You gotta be kidding me..... Smdh

    Why is this now a problem? Look, cross-dressing men and women have been using their preferred restroom for longer than we will ever know. Zero problem.

    Yhal miss the point either way people are being oppressed black people should know a thing or too about that so why are we the ones that constantly throw away our own their are trans in the black community and if we are trying to unite as one then we need all the support we can get.

    Yeah because a female who looks/talks/acts like a male (vise versa) is going to make everyone feel okay going into the girls bathroom. This way more uncomfortable.

    This is by far the biggest non issue in history!! 1 out of every 1000 babies born in the U.S. unwillingly undergo sexual assignment surgery every year because they're born with both parts (hermaphrodite). These kids are then forced to be something they weren't meant to be growing up. So I'll say this. Being transgender isn't always a choice. Sometimes it's forced on people. Also who's to say that the adults making these decisions aren't trying to fix what was done to them as babies??

    Kids aren't stupid enough to confuse their own gender. It's not a choice it's a fucking organ!!! You're born with it regardless if you like it or not. You can't raise people stupid enough to be blind to reality. And if your kid considers them self transgender then congratulations you have failed as a human being and especially as a parent

    I don't mind long as they're actually transgender cause I don't think people fully understand how that works

    Isn't this sickening that the Republican party would do something racially offensive by discriminating transgenders to commit themselves to transphobia and segregation by abusing and violating civil rights.

    would you be okay with a 30 year old man dressed as a woman using the bathroom while your ten year old daughter is using it???

    What if there's a disabled adult who can't use the bathroom unattended and the only person they have with them is of the opposite sex. These alt-right nut jobs are so obsessed about making life hard for transgender people that they're doing the same thing for many other groups unwittingly
