Proposed bathroom legislation would foster perverts

Hundreds gather at an Horry County Schools meeting relating to transgender students bathroom use on Monday, May 2, 2016. As the board was in executive session the group began singing and praying until a woman stood to ask why all students shouldn't have the same rights. Her questions and responses to their questions were occasionally drowned out by singing and shouting. When the board reconvened, it approved a resolution to follow the Title IX ruling but support a Virginia school district challenging the ruling.

Re Judy Parker’s letter saying bathroom fears are unfounded:

I take exception. She obviously does not stay abreast of today's trends. We are not trying to penalize anyone - we are trying to protect the safety of our young children. Perverts are perverts.

A normal man, in terms of appearance, will be able to enter a woman's bathroom or shower at the YMCA and be exposed to small little girls using the bathroom or taking a shower. These people are called perverts. I don't want to crack the door to allow these men into the bathroom of innocent little girls.

She has not thought this out. I wonder if she has any daughters or granddaughters who will be exposed. We need to stand up for this cause.
