Quoting Quiverfull: Public Bathrooms and Evangelical Fears?

Quoting Quiverfull: Public Bathrooms and Evangelical Fears? April 24, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Cates from Mary From Martha – My Thoughts on Unmonitored Transgendered Bathroom Access

Editor’s note: This is such a hot button issue right now in the religious world. Like everything they protest and fear monger over it all boils down to sex. They fear that transgendered people are sexual predators instead of just like everyone else. Do they not realize they have been already sharing restrooms with the transgendered and not be molested? This is the same argument that Michelle Duggar made in her transphobic robocalls. What do you think about this issue?

You’re right. I have NO idea what it’s like to struggle with my gender identity. I basically just looked down and assumed that it was what it was. I’ve never felt like man. I’ve never met a man who felt like a woman. At least not that I know of.

I know that must be a horrible feeling, a terrible internal struggle filled with confusion and utter fear. And I’m sorry. And I want them the know they have a beautiful identity in Jesus- a divine calling. I want them to  know that their struggle is a lie told by the ultimate deceiver. I want them to know they’re loved unconditionally. I want them to feel ACCEPTED. But I cannot be okay with legislation that is attempting to allow ‘transgender’ people to access any restroom based on “gender identity.”

The reason is simple: my daughters’ safety is more important than someone’s feelings.

By no means do I believe that transgendered people have intentions of HURTING people. I honestly believe they are just people who are hurting. But I also believe that someone who wants to hurt people will stop at nothing to do just that. If a bad woman, claiming to be transgendered, could go into a men’s bathroom and possibly hurt your son, who were in there alone, she would. Because the law gives her that right and takes away your son’s right. In the same, any man could claim to “identify as a woman” and have unrestricted access to my little girls in the restroom.

The author is now upset with Target and saying she’s going to stop shopping there now that they have publicly announced their new transgender restroom policy – An Open Letter to Target.
