Proposed Maryland Gender Identity Bill Would Legalized 'Indecent Exposure' to Minors

"What parents want their daughter to use the public pool’s locker room with a naked man who cross-dresses full-time or part-time?"

Montgomery County, MD — A bill before the Montgomery County, Maryland Council puts girls and women at risk by opening women’s restrooms and locker rooms to men who dress as women, warns Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays (PFOX). The bill virtually eliminates gender distinctions by allowing Montgomery County residents to choose if they are male or female even when the choice conflicts with their biological sex.

The bill, slated for a vote on Tuesday, Nov. 13, would add ‘gender identity’ as a protected class for ‘transgenders.’ It would guarantee the right to use public facilities consistent with the person’s gender identity “publicly and exclusively expressed or asserted.” No sex change is necessary.

As an organization that aids former transgenders, PFOX can attest that many transgenders prefer to dress and act publicly and exclusively as a woman or man on weekends and then as their birth gender during the work week. These are known as “weekend transgenders.” Pedophiles could also put on a dress and assert they are exclusively female in order to get near naked children in swimming pool locker rooms.

When asked if the proposed law would apply to weekend transgenders, Council member Duchy Trachtenberg refused to answer, instead insisting that “transgender people face serious discrimination … in public accommodations.”

“There’s a good reason why transgenders face ‘serious discrimination’ when using shower rooms and toilets that don’t apply to their gender,” said Regina Griggs, executive director of PFOX. “It’s because they don’t belong there. What parents want their daughter to use the public pool’s locker room with a naked man who cross-dresses full-time or part-time? This bill in effect legalizes indecent exposure to minors in these kinds of situations.”

Reponding to the concerned mother of a ten-year-old girl, councilmember George Levanthal admitted that he “cannot absolutely put to rest your concern that girls might find themselves in a locker or dressing room in the presence of a person who expresses or asserts herself as a woman but who still has male genitals.”

Note: Most transgendered men are heterosexual. So these people are proposing to allow deviant heterosexual men in restrooms and locker rooms with young girls and women.
This is insanity...
