Florida considering law banning men from Women's Bathrooms

Florida is considering a law which would require men to use men's bathrooms and women to use women's bathrooms, and not let them pick and choose.

Rep. Janet Cruz, a Tampa Democrat, reacted sharply to Rep. Artiles’ proposal. “I am outraged to hear that a colleague in the Florida House of Representatives has filed a bill that would discriminate against our fellow Floridians,” Cruz said in a news release.

Do you think it is right for the government to discriminate against men who want to look at naked women in the ladies bathroom?

The Florida Democratic Party issued a statement Friday from state Rep. David Richardson, a Miami Beach Democrat and also the first openly gay lawmaker in Tallahassee:

"This extreme bill would take Florida in the wrong direction,” Richardson said.

Do you think keeping men out of women's locker rooms is extreme?

“In order to attract the highest quality workers, we should be empowering our cities and businesses to promote inclusiveness and diversity among their employees.

Do you think Florida will have trouble attracting men to work in Florida if they learn they will not be able to peep into ladies bathrooms if they move there? Do you think the male workforce migrates to places where they can see undressed females in bathrooms?

The ACLU of Florida also weighed in: “This ‘show your papers to pee’ bill denigrates both transgender and non-transgender people alike,” said Daniel Tilley, the group’s LGBT-rights staff attorney. “In addition to dehumanizing transgender people in particular, it invites humiliation and harassment of anyone who is not considered sufficiently feminine or masculine in the eyes of the beholder.

Do you think there is any humiliation or embarrassment for girls who have to get undressed in a locker room while a guy in pantyhose sticks out his tongue and stares at them? What possible legitimate reason could there be for such a radical law keeping men out of women's bathrooms?

“It’s not that the transgender or the gender identity community is dangerous by any means,” Representative Artiles said, “but [the ordinance] creates a giant loophole for criminals, sexual deviants and sexual predators to walk into a shower, a woman’s locker room under the cover of law. A man such as myself can walk into the bathroom at LA Fitness while women are taking showers, changing, and simply walk in there. Someone can say, ‘What are you doing there?’ Under the ordinance, I don’t have to respond. It’s subjective. If I feel like a woman that day, I can be allowed to be in that locker room. I don’t know about you, but I find that disturbing.”

Did you ever notice how when the left does something radical, and the right tries to reverse it, it is the right that is called radical? Opposing illegal aliens, gay marriage, and now guys in the ladies bathroom is now considered radical. Do you think our society today more closely resembles 1984 or Brave New World?

None of this is surprising from a society that spends nearly half a million dollars studying gay sex apps or forces firefighters to march in gay parades.
