In a recent letter to the WSJ Editor (at this date unpublished) David A. Kallman, Sr. Counsel for the Great Lakes Justice Center in Lansing, Michigan, wrote:
In the controversy over bathrooms/LGBT “rights,” it is curious that companies like Dow Chemical, Alcoa and Monsanto have chosen sides (WSJ 4/18/16), along with Disney, the NBA and NFL…The hysteria and lies from opponents of Religious Freedom Restoration Acts are outrageous….They claim “RFRA is a license to discriminate.”…. RFRA is not a “license” to do anything. It is merely a defense against attempted infringement of religious rights. The bi-partisan Federal RFRA, co-sponsored by Senators Kennedy and Schumer, was supported by numerous liberal and conservative organizations, including the ACLU, American Jewish Committee, National Association of Evangelicals, Baptist Joint Committee, and National Council of Churches.
In the transgender bathroom “rights” controversy, much is at stake….No tolerance exists for anyone who disagrees with “their truth.” Must we all praise a 40 year old cross-dressing man using the women’s’ bathroom as a hero for justice while condemning a teenage girl as a hateful bigot for simply wanting her privacy and safety protected? You decide.
William Wagner, former Federal Magistrate Judge and Constitutional Law Professor, stated: “All states prohibit criminal sexual conduct, e.g., indecent exposure. No civil law purporting to allow such criminal activity protects a perpetrator from prosecution.” Yet, the moral high ground (funnily enough) is claimed by toxic polluters, Dow , Monsanto, and Alcoa. Disney’s employment of child molesters competes with the NBA and NFL’snasty habit of shielding million-dollar brawny players who beat up women and cheat on child support. The safety of women and children is clearly not the priority of such misogynist bureaucrats. So whose tune are they dancing to? And why? As to the reality of alleged “transgender” persons, lawyers defending the woman suing Planet Fitness did a quick search:
- SAN BERNARDINO CO., CA (2013) – A 46- year-old man cross-dressed as a woman to gain access to a women’s dormitory and other female only facilities to take pictures of women with a cell phone hidden in his purse.
- OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON (2012) – A 45- year-old man, who self-identified as a woman, used all of the woman’s facilities at the Evergreen State College swimming pool. He exposed himself to minor girls from the local area who would use the college’s swimming pool.
- PORTLAND, OREGON (2011) – A convicted sex offender for offenses against children claimed to be a transgender woman and wore a dress to access areas where young girls would change, such as locker rooms and swimming pools.
- TORONTO, CANADA (2014) – A man claimed to be transgender to stay at a women’s shelter where he then assaulted several women.
- PALMDALE, CALIFORNIA (2013) – A 33- year-old man was charged after allegedly dressing as a woman to secretly videotape women using the restroom at Macy’s.
- COLUMBUS, OHIO (2014) – A man was claiming to be a woman to use a cell phone to take pictures of women using the restroom.
- EVERETT, WASHINGTON (2012) – A nontransgender man wore a bra and wig to gain entry to a women’s bathroom at a local community college to take pictures and admitted to using the women’s showers for sexual gratification.
- BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND (2011) – A student wore a mask and wig to gain entry to a women’s bathroom to spy on women and make recordings of a sexual nature.
- BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA (2010) – A man twice disguised himself as a woman to gain access to the showers of a U.C. Berkeley locker room to take pictures of women.
Instances of cross-dressing men invading women’s privacy illustrates how such obscene conduct threatens the survival instincts of girls and women—normal, real men know this and will protect women and girls at all cost. At this time, the rates of rape of college girls and women in “higher” education is shocking! It is just such mean spirited men who eventually run major businesses, sports groups, banks, entertainers and politicians, demand that females receive all male sociopaths who “feel” they are women.
