This happened in some third world country...


Dear onyx.....I hope I've misconstrued your post. To which country are you referring to?

Does Norwegian Guy remember taking Viagra to get it up for a girl he didn't really find attractive?

Would a straight muscular masculine man in prison phuk your face?Just to exert his power over you because he thinks you are weak?Apparently a lot of pumping iron in jail,along with pumping faces.

People get gang raped in jail at knife point.

Attraction or a power trip?

Or being part of a crowd that controls others?

Posting this nonsense about what Third World pests do...is a stupid and worthless comparison...after all...don't they also eat horses, elephants and dogs..... but the fact that parents must consent, and they are required to receive therapy is consistent with was previously mentioned......


Onyx, your ignorance is showing.

Dee, who are you responding to? Again, your posts make no sense. The only thing I got out of that is not to eat your Grandma's cooking.

Chinook, lots of sex in jails, both genders. And the sex in jails includes rape, power, loneliness and I'm sure for more reasons than I can think of. Some men in jail think they're in Vegas in that what happens in jail, stays in jail. Hell, some men will get a blowjob from a guy and still consider himself straight and go home to wife and kids...only gay guys GIVE blowjobs.

Why does everyone assume guys in jail are having sex? My guess it is a relatively small percentage. I loved the prison show OZ, but never thought it represented reality. ..although I thought even back then JK Simmons was a great actor.

Ms kj, I for one do not believe a heterosexual guy would want homosexual relationships in lieu of women. My guess would be asexual behavior not homosexual behavior. I personally get sick at the thought of sex with abother guy...no matter what the circumstances

On a related note, erykah badu raised the hair on liberal backs by saying that girl uniform skirts should be knee length so as not to be distracting. She is a mother if two girls and viewed it as "protecting"

People say all kinds of things, doesn't make them right...doesn't make them wrong either. But who the hell cares about what erykah badu says, her opinion is no more important than Justin Beiber's opinion. And, she is allowed to raise her kids anyway she wants as long as it's legal. Hell, I'm sure our resident white supremacist spent time teaching his kids hate. And I'm sure Dee that you taught your kids intolerance just like I taught my kids to be open minded.

As the OP, I'd like to take the opportunity to thank everyone for taking so much interest in my thread. I certainly didn't expect it to go on for 15 pages. :)

I do, however, regret the hostility its caused amoung some users and hope you can make amends on a not so controversial topic.

All the best to everyone. x

You're exactly right NJgirl. Nobody really cares about what anyone says on here. It's not like we work together or have lunch together on Sunday's or share a beer at a pub. I've never read anything earth shattering or truly deep and meaningful on here, certainly nothing much educational. Mostly whining, some drunk posting, the odd crazy person pops up, a lot of lies, a little encouragement at times...it's like Seinfeld - a show about nothing. Just mild entertainment and a time waster when nothing is on tv or not at work or not out living. I mean absolutely nothing to you and vice versa. We're not even ships that pass in the night...we are nothing, you mean nothing to me and I mean nothing to you. But I'll tell you, I'll stand up for your right to be a nothing. Would you?

You want a prize for your revelation?

Well, there was a time when men used to wear tights. What's considered masculine and feminine is not set in stone, it is determined by the cultural standards of a specific time and place.

Some of us fashionistas are aware of this Mr. Stellan.


With that said....since at this point in time in western culture...a dress is identified with the female gender...how about you start a new trend?

Just run on down to Bloomies and pick yourself up a dress. Tell people you are fashion forward thinking man. :)

Please be sure to take a profile pic for us.



P.s. I'm thinking something floral for you....maybe....white with orange poppies. Very festive and springlike! :D

I see people here up to their old tricks. Ms. Cassie and Mr. Bigguysal are gone. So who in off topic is censoring. I know for a fact neither one of them self deleted.

To the subject matter at hand: hot off the presses:

http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/apr/19/virginia-transgender-bathroom-access-anti-lgbt-laws

In a significant victory for transgender rights advocates, a federal appeals court ruled on Tuesday that a Virginia school board is violating anti-discrimination laws by barring a transgender boy from using the boys’ restroom.

The ruling makes the fourth circuit court of appeals the highest court in the country to weigh in on the fight for access to restrooms, locker rooms and other spaces segregated by gender. North Carolina belongs to the same circuit – meaning Tuesday’s decision could have an influence on a separate lawsuit challenging the embattled anti-LGBT law in North Carolina, HB2.

The Department of Justice and the Department of Education have both ruled that under Title IX, a federal law banning gender discrimination, schools must allow transgender students to have unfettered access to bathrooms and locker rooms that match their gender identity.

But a growing number of schools are defying those mandates, resulting in court battles like this one.


From Jim Crow to transgender ban: the bathroom as battleground for civil rights

“Today’s fourth circuit decision is a vindication for Gavin and a reinforcement of the Department of Education’s policy,” said Joshua Block, a staff attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union. “With this decision, we hope that schools and legislators will finally get the message that excluding transgender kids from the restrooms is unlawful sex discrimination.”

A three-judge panel from the fourth circuit court of appeals handed down the split decision as part of an ongoing lawsuit against the Gloucester County school board. Gavin Grimm, a transgender high school student, sued the school board in a lower court for access to the boys’ bathrooms and lost.

Grimm has asked the fourth circuit to hear an appeal of his case. Tuesday’s ruling orders the lower court to reconsider his petition to access the boys’ bathroom while the case is ongoing, but it is not the final decision in Grimm’s case.

Still, legal experts consider the decision to be a strong signal of which way the three-judge panel will lean if the court hears his case. The fourth circuit is a moderate court, with Democratic appointees filling more than half its seats but a strong minority made up of staunch conservatives.

“The uncontroverted facts before the district court demonstrate that as a result of the Board’s restroom policy, [Grimm] experiences daily psychological harm that puts him at risk for long-term psychological harm,” wrote Judge Andre Davis in his concurring opinion.

Grimm, a high school junior in Virginia’s Gloucester County, began to transition when he was a sophomore. He went by his new legal name at school, and school documents identified him as male. Gloucester high school also allowed Grimm to use the men’s restroom for seven weeks, according to records, without any incidents or objections from fellow students.

But complaints about his bathroom use flooded in from students’ parents as well as many adults who didn’t have children in Gloucester County schools. A series of vitriolic public meetings moved the Gloucester County school board to reverse its policy.

At the start of his junior year, Grimm was barred from the boys’ bathroom and forced to use standalone unisex bathrooms the school installed specifically for him. Grimm and his parents attended and spoke at the public meetings, where speakers referred to him as a “young lady” and a “freak”, and compared him to a dog.

Grimm sued the school for discrimination in June 2015.

In court filings, the school has argued that Grimm is “biologically and anatomically a female” and “has not provided medical evidence or medical testimony that [he] is a boy or that he has male chromosomes”. Grimm’s court filings say he was diagnosed with gender dysphoria – a condition in which a person’s gender identity does not match the gender assigned at birth – in April 2014.

Gloucester County schools did not return the Guardian’s requests for comment leading up to the decision.

In September, US district Judge Robert Doumar dismissed Grimm’s Title IX lawsuit. Doumar, an appointee of President Ronald Reagan, ruled that Gloucester high school could force Grimm to use unisex bathrooms because Title IX “allows schools to maintain separate bathrooms based on sex as long as the bathrooms for each sex are comparable”, he wrote. “Under any fair reading, ‘sex’ … clearly includes biological sex” that individuals are assigned at birth.

LGBT groups around the country have been anxious for the results of Grimm’s appeal. “Since this is the first court of appeals to decide the issue, it will be a bellwether one way or the other and will probably be one of the primary legal authorities that people look to in the immediate future to see where courts are headed on this issue,” Block, the ACLU attorney, told reporters ahead of the ruling. The ACLU is representing Grimm in the lawsuit.

Depending on the outcome of the case in the fourth circuit, the ruling could have implications for similar disputes anywhere in the fourth circuit. The fourth circuit includes Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

Grimm’s is one of several transgender rights lawsuits currently roiling the federal court. In March, a transgender student and a transgender employee of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill challenged HB2, the state’s highly controversial law that restricted access to public facilities and initially banned anti-bias protections for LGBT individuals.

In Michigan, the parents of a 14-year-old transgender girl filed a lawsuit against four Detroit-area schools for failing to acknowledge their daughter’s gender identity and protect her from harassment. That case is still in its early stages.

Seamus Johnson, a transgender man, sued the University of Pittsburgh after the school barred him from the men’s restrooms and locker rooms, eventually expelling him. At one point, Johnson was arrested for appearing in the men’s locker room. A district judge ruled against Johnson, who appealed to the third circuit court of appeals. But Johnson and the school recently told the third circuit that they had reached a tentative agreement.

Medical and child psychology experts have consistently told courts that recognizing transgender students’ identity is critical to their mental wellbeing. In a brief support Grimm’s lawsuit, a number of leading medical societies in the study of transgender health wrote: “For transgender students, being in a school that affirms and supports their gender identity is critical to ensuring that they too can experience adolescence in a healthy and constructive manner.

“A school that fails to support its transgender students risks severely hampering their development and long-term wellbeing,” the brief continued. “Refusing to respect and affirm a transgender student’s gender identity communicates a clear, negative message: there is something wrong with the student that warrants this unequal treatment.”

Before he transitioned, Grimm experienced anxiety and depression severe enough that he finished the second half of his freshman year in home school.

“When I came out as male to my friends and my family and the community, it was the beginning of a radical change in my quality of life for the better,” he said in January, just before the appeal. “I was just trying to embrace my new freedom to be myself.” Being barred from the boys’ bathroom, he said, is “humiliating”. The public meetings were “dehumanizing”. “I was talked about as if I was not even a person,” Grimm recalled.

LOL!!!!
The riculousness of this is apparent.

These judges must have similarly mentally iill relatives, siblings, children.
And,see, that makes it OK.

Gavin's parents abused and endangered her and she should have been taken away.

If you are a female, you are a female. You can reveal that you want to be a clown or stripper but not a male.

She can be a boy as much as she can be Joan of arc or napolean. Asylums are full of them.

Why are governments and courts indulging the mentally ill instead of treating them.

Inmates . . . asylum. . .

Maybe that is why mother nature is sending the islamists West, to reign in the leftists.

Maybe we will end up with a happy medium.

Apparently the person below couldn't understand "Maybe we will end up with a happy medium."

Mother nature? Western governments are inviting them in. How are Islamists going to reign in the leftists? It's the leftists that want them there and are the first ones to defend them.

Mother Nature is sending the Islamists West?? That's pretty much one of the stupidest things I've read on here.

Did Mother Nature send Hitler too?

Is "leftist" a mental disease too? How about bigot or homophobe...are they mental diseases...,maybe sent by Mother Nature?

All school in Alberta, Canada (for Onyx who doesn't know which country is which) the provincial government requires each school, both public and Catholic, to have a policy to deal with this very issue. Our children have gender-neutral washrooms available.

As a verb, reign means to rule or to possess supreme power over something or someone. 3. Rein as a noun refers to a leather strap fastened on to a horse's bridle and used to control the horse. As a verb, to rein means to check or guide a horse using the reins.
Rain, Reign or Rein?

Thanks, Wooby.

Anyway,


If there were gender neutral one toilet bathrooms, or single use,or the schools were full of "family-style" bathrooms, this would NOT be an issue, would it?

Two people are gone because they were reported for deletion by fellow forumites. No self deletion, no freedom of speech...must tow the party line.

And Nancy, you know that some threads go on whether the OP stays or walks away. And some threads die before you get to post on them because they are voted off.

Coma, I don't think there is any sort of moderating going on. There was an Event Mod popping in at times about a year ago. As for deleting, my profile, Cassie, was reported and removed yesterday. If enough report because they don't "like" you, then you get your profiles removed. I wonder how these folks manage to tie their own shoes in the morning and make it through a day in the real world if they can't handle comments from people on an Internet dating forum.
