Transgendered people are not “harmful to society” if they recognize the rights of others. When a man still has his original genitals, he has no place in at woman’s restroom. Do “normal people” have any rights @gene? You are totally concerned about what the transgendered person feels and don’t care about the feelings of “normal people.” They can be embarrassed and maybe even harassed if the “transgendered” is a pervert who gets off going into the women’s restroom.
I have huge problem with transgendered men who get into women’s sports. Female, just like male athletes, have to train hard to succeed. Why is it fair for a transgendered male, who has had testosterone pumping into his body for years, participate in women’s sports and beat them because of his biological advantage? Why should he-she take scholarship money away from natural female athletes?
Now I will really get you angry. I am totally against these men who join the military to get free transgender treatment. The military is for our national defense, not for some man who wants to become a woman. That is not the purpose of the military.
If, after they have had the sexual reorientation surgery, that they decided to join the military, I have no problems so long as they are psychologically fit service.
I think that my positions are far more liberal than those of most conservatives, but that does not matter to “progressives.” For them, you have to tow the line on every issue, or you are a bigot.
