  1. I watched the whole thing. I wasn’t offended but I didn’t particularly think it was great comedy. I found the Daphne story off putting and comparable to “I can’t be a racist because I have a black friend.”
  2. Seemed more anti-Target than anti-trans to me. Not to mention that of the 23 stories, none of them were about sexual assault. Most were voyeurs or exhibitionists. A few involved incidents where the trans person was using the bathroom or changing room peacefully and a cis person made a scene. In the last one the trans person punched out the cis woman making a scene. A bunch of the stories also involved what seem from the blurb to be cis men dressing up as women for the purpose of peeping. Not that any of this stuff is good, we obviously don’t want people peeping in bathrooms and dressing rooms. But it doesn’t really support the premise that there are a lot of sexual assaults and rapes happening in bathrooms. And it doesn’t support the argument that bathroom restrictions are likely to have a real impact. Cis guys could still dress up like women and sneak in no matter what the rule is, unless you institute a “drop your pants at the door” rule.
  3. The PSF isn’t my primary source of most news but it is my primary source of right-wing news.
  4. If there was evidence that this led to an additional one or two rapes per year nationwide, I think the benefits to thousands outweigh the admittedly tragic outcome for the one or two victims. If this actually led to thousands of additional rapes I would be against it. But I haven't spent a lot of time thinking about the precise number of rapes that would change my mind. Mostly because I'm skeptical that it leads to any additional rapes at all.
  5. Yup, this is literally the only place in my life that I can have political discussions outside of my bubble.
  6. I think I may have figured out @Sparky Big Time's argument: 1) Transgenderism is a form of mental illness and normalizing it does not help the people that suffer from this illness 2) Allowing people to use the bathroom of the gender they identify with normalizes transgenderism 3) Therefore restricting bathroom use to a person's gender assigned at birth is in the best interests of trans people, even though they don't see it that way. It's not about the safety or privacy of cis people, it's about the mental health of trans people. Sparky please tell me if this is correct, thanks.
  7. Well even mentally ill people* need to go to the bathroom. If it's not about the location, and physical violence against others is rare, maybe we should just let them poop where they want. *I don't agree with your characterization here but I don't think it really matters for the purpose of deciding bathroom rules.
  8. Are girls dropping their pants in the hallway? You don’t get the whole privacy thing? This was a crime of opportunity. He could have raped her afterward in the hallway. He didn’t. He raped her in a bathroom, where it was just the two of them, in a place where the school allowed him to be. The second alleged assault was in an empty classroom, where it was just the two of them, after the perpetrator allegedly pushed the victim into the room from the hallway. There are plenty of places other than bathrooms where one-on-one interactions can occur. I don't spend a lot of time in women's restrooms but my understanding is that folks don't usually just walk around with their pants down. That seems like more of a locker room thing. My impression is that in bathrooms pants dropping is usually just happening in a stall.
  9. The second alleged assault happened last week. That has caused this parent to break his media silence.
  10. Here is how Smith describes his own actions at the school: "I went nuts. I called the principal a p-----. .... Six cop cars showed up like a f----ing SWAT team" to respond to his behavior. Smith seems to think it worked out well, though, because with the attention he received "we got an escort to the hospital and they administered a rape kit that night." We've seen the video posted of him scuffling with cops at the school board meeting. I wouldn't do any of those things. If my daughter was raped at school the first thing I would do would be to try to comfort her I'm pretty sure that after undergoing the trauma of a rape, the last thing my kid would want is for her dad to come busting in there calling the principal names and acting so out of control that six cops have to show up. After leaving the school with my daughter, I would take her to the hospital myself to get a rape kit administered if warranted, there's no need for me to get arrested for that to happen. My primary focus in those first hours would be mostly on caring for my child's welfare, and to a lesser extent, preserving any evidence that might be important in convicting the rapist. If I had concerns about how the school acted in either preventing or responding to the rape, I would raise those concerns to the school and school board in a way that seemed most likely to persuade them to change the policies. I would explain what happened to my daughter and why and how I think the school's policies contributed to it. I wouldn't go to a school board meeting, get into a shouting match with someone, then start physically fighting with the cops that told me to back off.
