Funny and sad at the same time, because people like that give everyday homosexuals a bad name.

Pretty comical though. I had a chuckle at that disturbing thought.

This assumes transgendered people are violent criminals. This post is unbelievably ignorant. Many transgendered people aren't necessarily attracted to people of the same sex - for instance, if a man b/c a woman, he may still be attracted to women as he was before he changed, or he may be attracted to men.

Transgender is the state of one's "gender identity" (self-identification as woman, man, neither or both) not matching one's "assigned sex" (identification by others as male, female or intersex based on physical/genetic sex).[1] "Transgender" does not imply any specific form of sexual orientation; transgender people may identify as heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, pansexual, polysexual, or asexual; some may consider conventional sexual orientation labels inadequate or inapplicable to them.
-Wikipedia

I am not threatened by a transgendered individual who identifies as a woman using the ladies room. That's the room they should be using. I do not fear violence. I fear violence from the unbelievable ignorance that your post engenders, spreading fear around like a virus, making innocent people and children of God who may not be like you but who have a soul just like you suffer. As they continue to do for no sin that I can see.

God bless all in this frightened world of ours. It needs many blessings.

Or does that not concern you?
If you have ever gone to a sold-out concert at a large venue, you will find many women going into the men's room, where the stall lines are shorter. Overalls not needed. This has been going on since the 60s.

It's not about the cross dressing wack jobs. It's about bad law.

I saw a woman using a urinal in the mens room at an REO Speedwagon concert in Austin a few years ago... I have to admit, I was a bit uncomfortable.

Malloy ever the radical activist. The bill passed the House.
Last night, the House of Representatives cast the single worst, most anti-family vote in the last six years. They passed the Bathroom Bill, which does more to move Connecticut toward a society incapable of grasping objective truth than any vote since the 2005 civil unions fight. You can read about it here.

Just 24 hours earlier we had won enough support to defeat the bill. But, according to several sources, Gov. Malloy then responded by heavily lobbying the Democrats until they had the necessary votes. The Governor's influence was especially felt in the defeat of an amendment that would have protected women's bathrooms from the Bathroom Bill.

Lobbying? Sounds more like arm twisting mob style. "It would be unfortunate if your town lost support for x".
