Can You Help? I’m Confused About Transgender and Women’s Rights

 

As a lawyer, I try to understand the arguments for the “other side” regardless of whether I might agree with them. Being able to argue my opponent’s position sometimes reveals opportunities for agreement or settlement, and highlights weaknesses in my own position that I may need to shore up.

But I’m having trouble with recent developments in the “transgender” rights, specifically the court in Canada that is considering whether to require female employees of a grooming salon to view and to handle the private parts of a man who apparently wants to pretend he is a woman, and the US “Equality” Act that has been passed by the House of Representatives that would require women and girls to be exposed to men in women’s spaces such as restrooms, locker rooms, changing rooms, and showers.

What’s the top burning question on Yelp’s mind these days? If a business is pet-friendly? If it accepts Apple/Android/Samsung Pay? If it has bike parking, or if it’s good for groups, romantic, intimate, or good for kids? Nope: Yelp wants to know if trannies can take a tinkle. Check in to any establishment, and the […]

I was amused to drive past my daughter’s college this week and see the always-present “Special Event” signs, this time with the name of a certain local Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist’s name at the top. She’s — shocker — a typical liberal, but with a softer touch than most and a talent for saying exactly what you’d […]

A friend of mine wrote this, and I’m interested if anyone here has any read on the science / psychology of this subject (juvenile transgenderism, gender dysfunction, etc.).  It’s totally out of my wheelhouse (dammit Jim, I’m a logistics manager and historian, not a doctor!), but with transgender bathroom issue rearing its head again I would […]

Greg Corombos of Radio America and David French of National Review applaud the Trump administration for rescinding Pres. Obama’s demand that all public schools embrace transgender accommodation and leaving the issue to states or local school districts.  They also slam the Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for ruling that any gun can be banned if it’s “useful for military service.”  And David vents about the one of the worst trades in NBA history.

My last post called Pain and Politics was written because a good (liberal) friend at a prestigious East Coast College said they have “finally gotten on the bandwagon”, and she sent a picture to me showing a plaque next to a bathroom that reads: All Gender Bathroom: An inclusive space for people of all gender […]

I broke my #2 rule (#1 Never Assume). I let politics influence my attitude with a close friend. She lives in a liberal state (where I used to live) and works in Academia. She emailed me a compliant bathroom picture from this prestigious college that she works at (we are former colleagues) which stated some […]

It was my wife who introduced me to the Harry Potter series of books. At first, I expressed disinterest: I had too often seen the middling to sub-standard fare which pop culture promotes – and there was an abundance of hype over Harry Potter. Finally, one Christmas, my wife bought me the then complete set […]

From Weird Al’s Facebook page: Like many other entertainers on the road this summer, I wrestled with the decision about whether or not to cancel my North Carolina concert dates in protest of the controversial HB2 bill. It was definitely not an easy choice, but I have decided to honor the dates, as I don’t […]

Isis is on the march. The U.S. economy is on life support. The President’s signature law (ACA) is collapsing. Iran is thumbing it’s nose at the world. It’s election year 2016 and Conservatives are outraged about transgender bathrooms?  We are being played. We are fools, rubes, useful idiots who easily fall for the latest progressive overreach. Leftists […]
