The American Family Association is so focused on scaring its followers (that is how you bring the money in, after all) with harrowing tales of little girls raped by trans* people in public bathrooms that they’re lying about a Washington, DC law that applies only to single-occupant bathrooms.
A regulation on the books since 2006 is now being enforced, requiring removal of signage on single-stall public bathrooms designating it for men or women, in order to accommodate the transgendered community. Public places that don’t comply could be charged with a civil infraction and fined $500.
OneNewsNow talked with Bryan Fischer, director of issues analysis for American Family Association. “Well, once again we see an example of how the homosexual lobby is seeking to coerce and compel people of faith and goodwill against their will to accept and recognize and approve sexual deviancy,” he says.
In addition, AFA president Tim Wildmon feels that because businesses that don’t meet the terms of the regulation face possible fines, it places “yet another strain on American business owners so the LGBTQ community can feel validated.”
“Time after time,” Wildmon continues, “special rules apply to the LBGTQ community; but the equality for everyone seems to end there, as it’s obvious that no thought has been given to the male and female customers of these businesses who prefer the privacy of a restroom specific to their gender.”
He says gender differences ought to be respected and privacy considered as well as the fact that many women will be offended, if not struck with fear, seeing a man enter their bathroom.
Um. You do realize that only one person goes in to a single-occupant bathroom at a time, right? Do you think that women are so fragile that the mere idea that a man might use the same bathroom they do when they’re not in it will strike them with fear? How on earth would they manage with their home bathroom if they have a man that uses that one too? Lies, lies, lies. That’s all they’ve got.
