You're ignoring the most important thing. I never said anything about urges. I'm talking about being embarassed. Just it.

If clothes just exist to protect from the weather, why use bikinis at all in the beach? If is just for the weather, why use in closed rooms with thermostats controlling the temperature?

1. The Sun is dangerous to the skin, so there is a valid reason to where something at the beach. In regards to bikinis, yes it doesn't really protect from the Sun, but bikinis haven't even been around for 100 years.

2. There's also the problem with sanitation. I guess that you could be in the house with no clothes, but with nothing in between say the furniture and the genitals, it is not good for sanitary reasons.

OMG, I can't believe you are really trying to prove that clothes exist just because of the weather. Nothing that people use at the beach for the last ten decades protect it from the sun. Nothing. Neither men or women.

As for sanitary reasons, there are other forms of solving that. When you use a public bathroom, or even in your own house if you don't live alone, you have contact with things that other people genitals touch too. So, would not be a big problem sitting in a chair naked if it was made from other material.

Why take pictures with clothes? Why cover genitals in sex scenes in movies? That's not for the weather and you know it.

That may not be why people wear clothes nowadays, but that's the reason why they exist.

You mean bathrooms are seperated by sex. Gender is all about identity, sex is about the biology.

I grew up learning them as meaning the exact same thing and just because some peoples definitions may have changed doesn't mean mine ever will.

Just loved that response. Good, polar bear!

Is that too hard for you guys to understand?

I would never feel safe with my daugher going to a bathroom where any men could enter just for claiming that he's transexual. And if he's not? Will be a supervisor in every bathroom to guarantee who is trans and who is not? Wouldn't that be more embarassment to trans people?

Also, that's not a fucking demonstration of hate over transexuals, that's not something to make them feel bad, it's just a simple fucking bathroom. If you have a dick, you go to men's bathroom. If you don't have, then you can go to the ladies room. SImples as that. It should be that easy. Sincerely, I get disappointed everytime I see an irrelevant question like that turning into something big. IT'S JUST A BATHROOM.

And how the hell do you think it will be policed?
You do realise most of the time you cannot actually tell who is trans and who isn't just by a simple glance? That you have shared a bathroom with someone who is trans your entire life?
Are you going to start demanding a toilet license? And have an armed-guard at every single toilet enterance to enforce this? Check under everyone's skirts to make sure they have the appropriate equipment?

It has never been an issue, so why should it be an issue now? Let them use the bathrooms they desire.


I don't mind seeing a trans people in the same bathroom as I. If he/she loooks exactly like a guy, he/she is welcome. The problem is the "use the bathroom they desire". That's not how things work. You live in community, so you have to follow certain rules. If you have a penis, then you use men's bathroom. If you don't have a penis or looks like a woman, then use the women's bathroom. It's common sense. You have to adapt to certain things. I'm against high taxes, but since I live in a society there are not enough people wanting to give up the government help and fight for their right to mind their own business, then I have to pay taxes. I have a dick, I live in a world that certain people have dicks and others don't, then I use the bathroom for people with dicks. If trans people could use the bathroom they choose, everyone should get the same right. Why I have to walk to a more distant bathroom in college, for example, when I had a ladies room just next to my room and trans people can use whichever they want? I'd be embarass with a girl, even a girl that try so hard to look like a man, walking into the men's bathroom while I'm peeing on the mictory.



Ohh too bad. I always identify as a woman when I have to go number 2. Woman bathrooms are way more cleaner.

And now Maura Healey just had an 8 year old girl come on stage and defend her "transgender" 7 year old brother. He hasnt even hit his first puberty yet and your telling me he knows hes a women and not a man? Again it looks like parents arent really doing a good job.

I get angry about something like that. How a child with less than 10 years old could possibly know if he/she is a transgender? Totally parent's fault for raising a confused child. With 7 years, I was worried about how to finish A Link to the Past, not this gender/sexual stuff. I was a sentimental boy, used to watch Disney's princess movies and didn't like any blue clothes (that part, actually, it's soccer related, I'm a Internacional fan and the rival team, Gremio, main color is blue)  and nobody make a deal about this. Nobody tried to force some support or even show concern about my sexuality because I was a fucking child. I grew up just fine. I naturally start liking action movies and became sexual interested in ladies in the right time when I hit puberty.  Let kids be kids for God's sake. Give that boy cars and balls. If he start asking for dolls, maybe give him a doll, but let him be. When he become older, he will decide what he want. Right now, it's just a child.

As someone who used to work part time cleaning office buildings for extra cash I can say with 100% certainty that this is completely false....the Mens restroom are ALWAYS far cleaner than that of the women....like no contest lol.



The absence of evidence is NOT the evidence of absence...

Science says hi.

Genetics say hi. No matter how many operations they'd go through, in the end their chromosomes will still be the same. 

You assume that science will forever remain still.

Besides, men can have female (XX rather than XY) chromosomes.

With the way China is behaving? We're getting there soon. If trump will be involved, it's just him pulling the trigger.

Ever wonder how other countries see us behaving?

The rest of the world looks at the USA currently with allot of amusement. It's free entertainment.

Well, I'm sure the people in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Yemen aren't too amused.



My take is as follows:
If a man use men's
If a woman use women's
If a transgender woman, use women's
If a transgender man, use men's
If genderfluid/nonbinary/etc, get the fuck off tumblr and grow up

Offended? Good, you've learned the life lesson that the world doesn't exist to make you feel good about yourself.
