I remember several years ago when my children were younger taking them to Disneyland. I also remember how comfortable, relaxing and really shiny clean the washrooms were. But that was then, and this is now. Thanks to Obama and his transgender bathroom laws, I would not feel comfortable or safe in those same washrooms today, regardless of how clean they were.
Recently a liberal mom got a rude awakening that changed her views about the “bathroom debate” and decided to share her story regardless of what the backlash would be. This is a reality check like no other.
Kristen Quintrall Lavin runs a blog called, “The Get Real Mom,” in which she exposes the harsh realities of what she calls, “momming.” However, on a recent trip to Disneyland with her young son, Lavin, she was exposed to another harsh reality — the reality of bathroom stalking, which made her question her progressive liberal views on the bathroom debate.
H/T Conservative Tribune:
Lavin commented on her blog that she has seen and supported “transgender” women — men identifying as women — using women’s public restrooms prior to the incident happening at Disneyland. “Transgenders who certainly felt comfortable in the women’s room and probably frightened to go into the men’s. At these times, I smiled … I peed … and life went on.”
Then, all of that changed when she was at Disneyland with her friend, her son, and her friend’s son.
“I went to the bathroom while she watched our boys in their strollers, and then I did the same.” Lavin wrote.
That is when a “very large, burly man in a Lakers Jersey” walked into the bathroom and leaned against the wall. Lavin spoke about seeing about 12 other women and children just staring at the man, wondering what he was doing in the women’s room and that their collective silence is what caused her to tell her story.
Lavin described how the man knew the women wouldn’t say anything about his presence, because they had been “culturally bullied” into silence. The fear of being non-politically correct was more overwhelming than the very real danger of a man casually eyeing them in an intimate environment, when women literally have their pants down.
She wrote that the man eventually started walking past each stall. “You know, the stalls that have 1 inch gaps by all the door hinges so you can most definitely see everyone with their pants around their ankles.” His perversion had been given a license, and every single woman in that restroom felt powerless to challenge him.
“This notion that we’re shamed into silence b/c we might offend someone, has gone too far. There was a man in the bathroom. Not transgender. There was a man who felt entitled to be in the woman restroom, because he knew no one would say anything,” she wrote.
“There were 20-25 people by the time I left, who were scared and uncomfortable by his ominous presence. And the only thing stopping us, was our fear of political correctness and that the media has told us we don’t know what gender is anymore,” Lavin astutely stated.
Then she hit it hard with the truth that she had just been privy to…
“I need to know it’s ok to tell a man, who looks like a man, to get the f*&% out. Gender just can’t be a feeling,” she wrote. “There has to be science to it.”
And THERE you have it! THIS is the problem. Prior to Obama’s administration screwing things up by making it a law, transgenders went into the washrooms without much outrage. This isn’t about transgenders, so much as, the law allows ANY pervert to say he “feels like a woman” on any day, and allows that pervert to enter the washroom legally. This is why most conservatives and even liberals, like Kristen, are upset with the law.
Would you want to see this guy legally enter a washroom while you were in it? How about while your teenage daughter was in it? I agree with Kristen. Women need to be able to turn to perverts and say get the frick out of this washroom! Because until we can say THAT, perverts will prey in public restrooms.
Back in February, President Trump withdrew Obama-era protections for transgender students in public schools that let them use bathrooms and facilities corresponding with their gender identity. Let’s hope Trump can continue to repeal this law beyond just schools. The federal government should never have gotten involved in this issue!
The fight over the bathrooms was never about LGBT, it was more about President Obama and his administration’s liberal political agenda for radical social change.
