I kind of prefer America when it was still NOT tolerant. Atleast we
didn't have bullshit like this taking place on a daily basis. You know
what? Im gonna go into the girls locker room in some gym and start
masturbating wildly and just claim that I identify as woman and I have a
mental condition that makes me jerk my manhood all the time, which I
don't acknowledge.

Genius.

I think this is cis-privilege rearing it's ugly head. Forcing a person to self-identify with one gender or another is pretty binary.

Interesting case here. A conservative MP says what's on the mind of left wing and pro-labour folks in Canada. He apologizes but the comments section are full of pro-labour folks applauding him. His comments:

Media outlet iPolitics is reporting that New Brunswick MP John Williamson told delegates at a conference in Ottawa that it makes no sense to pay "whities" to stay home while companies bring in "brown people" as temporary foreign workers.

I guess racism is okay under the right circumstances? confused.gif

Expect a lot more of this as they get bored with gays and need a new war to fight.

The trans/non-binary/non-cis agenda is next on the envelope.

Yeah, god forbid we don't needlessly discriminate against people.

Well, I feel like he was trying to couch the debate in terms of racism (and people are idiots and missing this part, or else *are* racist.)

Either way,unemployment is worst within native populations, and I don't particularly care where TFWs come from, they could come from Sweden or Swaziland and I'd still be leery of the program.

Tell it to those old prudes who don't want to undress in front of a woman just because she's a man.

I think the conversation is a bit more nuanced than deeming a person with a dick is being needlessly discriminated against in this scenario. I'm actually pretty sensitized to the whole trans thing and have a person in my social circle that is a trans person. This person is an absolutely wonderful and inspriational person, and I would probably get physically violent if anyone were to try and harm this person in my presence, but it doesn't mean that a woman who doesn't want a person with a dick in her changing room is automatically Hitler. She could well have something against trans-people in general but this is a gray enough area I think we need to cut her some slack. I certainly do not think cancelling her membership was the correct move by Planet Fitness, and if I were her, I would probably look into suing them.

Except she's a woman.

And sure. I'll explain that a transgender woman would probably be a 10/10 for changeroom etiquette, and I have to use the mens change room, where there's always about 20 old men standing around talking about old people things, as naked as the day they were born back in the reign of King George VI, for the entire duration of my work out.

As I believe I've stated before, there is no reason a public establishment should be required to provide you with a toilet. Remove that bullshit law and people can shit and piss at home. Or at pay toilets. I don't give a fuck.

I mean, sure, but I can't imagine a gym without a changeroom would really do that much business. Or a bar that didn't let you piss. There would be sufficient economic incentive to have facilities.

So let them decide what chagerooms they need. Or bars decide if they need a pissroom or just send you out on the street to piss in the sewer.
