Not so fast my friends.

The Metro Pulse lambastes Rep. Richard Floyd for his legislation making people use the bathroom of the sex on  their birth certificate.

 They call him "hard to take it seriously", "nut job",  because he submitted  "insane pieces of legislation" even calling it a "hate crime" and that "the state Legislature is specifically targeting the civil rights of the LGBT community."

But it seems the evil Mr. Floyd can just look to the future and see where all the LGBT  P.C. laws are taking us.  All he has to do is look outside our state borders to where the P.C. laws have already been implemented.


Through the secular-”progressive” looking-glass, the term “sexual orientation” has, in a few short years, evolved to accommodate an ever-expanding fruit basket of carnal appetites. First it was “LGB” – liberal shorthand for “lesbian, gay and bisexual.” Then they added a “T” for “transgender.” That’s cross-dressing. You know, fellas like 45-year-old Clay Francis (aka, “Colleen”).
Mr. Francis enjoys macramé, long walks on the beach, wearing lady’s knickers and showering fully nude with 6-year-old girls.
Because it’s illegal to “discriminate based on the basis of gender identity,” and since it’s the only “tolerant” thing to do, this brave bellwether of the persecuted LGBT victim-class has secured the “civil right” for him and other men to fully expose themselves to your daughter in the locker room at Olympia, Washington’s Evergreen State College.
But slow down, Dad. According to the law, if you have a problem with Mr. Francis baring all to your baby girl, then you’re the problem. You’re a “transphobe” (“homophobia’s” evil twin sister, er, brother … whatever). Deck this sicko for terrifying your first-grader and you’re off to jail while “Colleen” is off to the “Human Rights Campaign” for a commendation as the latest victim of an “anti-LGBT hate crime.”
Rosa Parks in drag, I guess.

  1. I can't imagine that anyone would support a pre-operative transgender man or woman having the right to use an open, opposite sex dressing area.

    And by "open dressing area", I'm referring to what most of us think of when we think of locker rooms. There is little or no privacy in them.

    There have been recommendations by the trans community that gender neutral dressing rooms, bathrooms, and locker areas be created to accommodate them.

    These places would not allow exposure to others. Rather, they are designed for privacy. Each facility would have closed dressing areas so that trans people and anyone else could privately dress and undress, shower, and use the various facilities without publicly exposing themselves.

    Think of bathrooms that have stalls--no open urinals and no door-less partitions. Everything would be closed off.

    Unisex bathrooms are common in European and Asian countries. They even exist in certain cities here in the U.S.

    Many businesses--even local ones here in Knoxville--already have "family restrooms".

    These restrooms allow elderly couples a private facility in order to accommodate one partner to help the other. They were also designed for parents with small children.

    I don't know about you, but I've been in a mens room in the past where a man brings his 6 or 7 year old daughter inside so that he can help her or so that he can use the facilities without leaving her alone outside. It's a little inappropriate.

    I think what most people objected to with regards to Rep. Richard Floyd was when he said of a transgender person attempting to use a public restroom or dressing room, "I'd just try to stomp a mudhole in him and then stomp him dry."

    This is hardly the kind of language you would expect to hear from a state representative.

    The man's entitled to his beliefs, but it crossed the line when he indicated that he would react violently. As far as I know, any kind of unprovoked violent attack on another person is still illegal here in TN.

    By the way, being transgender is still considered a disorder according to the medical and psychiatric community. The treatment is to assist a trans-person in transitioning to the opposite gender. Sexual reassignment surgery is expensive. Most insurances do not cover it. And only a few state and local insurances will cover it. So, as these people transition, they will dress and act as people of the opposite gender.

    How would you feel if someone dressed in a skirt and heels, obvious breasts and long, flowing hair, walked into the men’s room while you were using it? Would you demand they leave? Where would you have them go?

    The same is true with female-to-male trans-people. Would you feel comfortable with someone who looks exactly like a man sauntering into a lady’s room to use the facilities? Female-to-male transgender people take testosterone, which creates a deep voice, muscle mass and facial hair.

    Where would you have these people use the restroom when they are in the public?

    Finally, I'm curious, Stacey, what is your opinion about gay men using the same locker rooms and restrooms as straight men? Does it bother you to know that we're there? Do you even think about it?

    Do you think that gays should have separate locker rooms and restrooms?

  2. Tom, you say no one would ever do it after I have already proven to you that yes, someone has done it and is fighting in court to keep doing it. The link also provided other evidence of where the courts are forced to let him do it because of their "equality" laws. the link also showed where people want to take the flexible definition of words and basing morality on what feels good. Then you want private bathrooms for every group under the sun. Guess what. That sort of thing costs money. Multiply the cost of installing one commercial bathroom by thousands and then tell me how normalizing lgbt won't cost the state anything.

  3. I didn't say someone didn't try to do what you reported. Obviously someone has.

    What I said is that I can't imagine anyone SUPPORTING this kind of behavior.

    I've reached out to several trans-people on facebook about Clay Francis (aka, “Colleen”). None of them support this kind of behavior. They are as outraged as everyone else.

    They know that his behavior will likely be used by people such as yourself to further demonize the community.

    And if you read my post carefully I didn't say that there should be separate bathrooms for "every group under the sun". I just said that there should be more unisex or family restrooms for trans people, the elderly, parents with children, or others who feel uncomfortable going into either a men's room or lady's room.

    My gosh, they already have them at Walmart, Target, and many other places.

    And you have to stop thinking about how much it's going to cost to "normalize" LGBT people. Here's how I think of it... The government and private industry has gotten away for YEARS without providing facilities for trans people or without providing same-sex couples benefits and rights.

    Think of all of the money they've saved over the years. Now, the bill's come due. It's time to pay the piper.

    Once things have been made right, there will be no additional expense.

    Hey, no one asked to be born gay or trans. It's just the way we popped out of the womb. If you don't like it, take it up with God. He made us. He continues to make us. And He will continue to make us long into the future.

    And finally, I'm not sure if you're aware of this--you probably are--but for your readers who aren't aware, at one time Christians mistrusted and outright hated people with red hair. It came from the belief that Judas was a redhead.

    As recently as the 19th century, the French still referred to redheads as "poil de Judas" (hair of Judas).

    A letter from St. Jerome is quoted to say this about raising daughters: "Do not dye her hair red and thereby presage for her the fires of hell."

    And Christians hated left-handed people just as much. The bible contains over 100 positive reference to the right-hand and 25 negative references to the left-hand.

    People still try to force their left-handed children to use their right hand. I remember kids being forced when I was in elementary school back in the early 70s.

    Just thought you'd find this info interesting...

    1. Ah yes, the constant call of "just give us this and we will never ask for more" that has only been used since they invented politics. Of course it never ends there. First it's equal rights then its special rights mixed with some sort of pay back for past presumed slights. At least now you are being a little more honest. You don't want equality. You want special rights and privlages. You want society to bend to your will and be forced to pay to make you happy. Government is just a tool for you not to make sure you have the right to pursue happiness. But to mandate itt. To make others bend to your will and follow your mandates. Sorry. Not going to happen.

  4. So, let me get this right… You believe that as a legislator you get to set the laws for everyone else, but when a large group of people come together and demand equal rights, you get to sit in your ivory tower and say “no”?

    You quickly went from Tea Party Republican to Socialist; and now you’re on to Dictator.

    Do you understand the political system at all? I know you’re a politician, but that doesn’t mean you fully grasp that the people get the right to determine how they want to be governed.

    Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but YOU work for us. YOU are paid to represent US.

    Your election is not some huge gift that the citizens of Knoxville and Knox. Co. handed to you, so that you could go to Nashville and create and support only the laws and people that YOU want to.

    The federal DOMA law has been struck down as unconstitutional by the First and Second Circuit Courts of Appeals.

    Same sex marriage is now legal in CT, DC, IA, MA, MD, ME, NH, NY, VT, and WA.

    Openly gay service members can now serve in the armed forces.

    You keep saying it’s not going to happen, but it looks like it’s happening all around you. The LGBT community doesn’t have to wait on people like you to get what we want and are entitled to. It’s happening already.

    1. Tom you are under the misrepresentation that we live in a pure democracy. We do not we live in a representative republic. What you want is mob rule. Well it might be beneficial for you in the short term when the mob turned against you you would probably Be singing a different tune. Yes many states have passed what you want and I have shown you an example of what is the result of that that is not in America I wish to live in.

    2. Your last comment is probably the most telling of our conversation. “…that is not in (an?) America I wish to live in.”

      Guess who else have said those things… Segregationists… Misogynists... Anti-Semites… Anti-Catholics… Anti-Islamists… Anti-miscegenationists… And the list goes on…

      You want to live in an America where legislators, not the people, get to say how the people are governed. And that’s simply not going to happen.

      We elect you. You represent us and our ideas. You are a conduit of the people.

      There have been times when the majority rules--saying that they want certain laws to be in place. There have also been times when legislators have created laws and policies.

      But these laws and policies must also go through the review of the court system--to be sure that they follow Constitution; which can be amended through certain processes.

      The courts are present to be sure that our laws and the constitution are fairly enforced.

      If that’s not an America you wish to be a part of then there are countries, where tyrants (some religious, some secular) set the laws. And anyone is free to move to those countries.

    3. Tom,

      The door works both ways. You are free to go at any time as well. The system is set up so ideas may be heard that is not to say all ideas will be accepted. Majority does not make right. Nor does the courts. There was a time when the courts said a black man was property and then 3/5 of a man. That does not mean they were right either time. Nor does that mean even thought that may have been the popular opinion at the time that the legislature was right either. But that is the system we have.

      The views are implimented by the legislature with the concent of the governed. Not necessarily all of the governed but the governed that elected those representatives . Does that mean all views are perfectly represented and all views are implemented? No. You get representation we elect. Do I like Obamacare? No. Is it nationally popular? No. Does that mean it is not the law of the land? Unfortunately it is. There is no national referendum or popular vote on that issue.

      The president doe s not represent my views on that topic. Does that mean I can somehow over power that law by my sure desire? No. I can vote or leave. Same as you. Does that make Obama a dictator? While I may not like his views or many of the things seem dictatorial I still think he was properly elected and he has the ability to do what he did because of the power we have given him. Does that mean Obama is like a segregationist , ant Jewish? Anti Muslim? Anti catholic?

  5. When the ego becomes the standard by which good and evil are determined, and the floating concept of “tolerance” is held as a virtue...these kinds of problems are the result.
