The above article concerns the UK but our schools in the US are facing the same insanity. This article concerns girls not coming to school during their periods and not using the restroom at all at school or drinking liquids at school.
Let’s be honest. Even grown men are often complete assholes when it comes to the subject of periods. Let’s start with gender neutral bathrooms in public places in general. I don’t even let the men know when I’m having my period at work. Why? Anything that I don’t agree with or that pisses me off and would on any day of the year, is immediately discounted with a condescending is it that time of the month? It’s the chickenshit, insecure man’s way of trying to feel superior over a woman and discount his own bad behavior. It’s his excuse to not listen and continue acting poorly. On top of that, it’s not their business. Period. The other group of men just turn red and run away.
Now let’s talk about boys and girls given that grown men can’t even stop themselves from acting stupid. Boys randomly get erections. They learn the untucked tshirt and carry the book or whatever they can find in front of them tricks. They compare penis size. Sorry guys, even girls know you do this. Both boys and girls are going through puberty and are learning to be comfortable with their own body changes. Girls are trying to get the bra strap adjusted to the right length (which is easier with help), ask friends what to do about cramps and discuss periods and how to use and adjust feminine products. Most girls require instructions on how to use tampons. Most girls and women for that matter start their periods at inopportune times often not when they have feminine products with them. No women’s restroom on the planet is ever short of having a woman in it borrowing products from another woman. Complete strangers help each other out with no questions asked. It’s not hard to figure out why girls aren’t comfortable with boys in a restroom or locker room. It shouldn’t be happening. At all. Ever. Boys don’t really need to be present when a girl is explaining to another girl how to insert and use a tampon comfortably. This is ridiculous. The transgender girl does not have periods. The transgender girl usually has a penis. WTF is wrong with people that they can’t understand basic biology?
If you give a boy a chance to look at a girl naked, he will. Most men will too. And so will women and girls…..
I understand why transgender people don’t wish to share a restroom with the biological sex they are transgendering away from. The last thing a boy transitioning to a girl needs is a boob job and then being in the boys locker room or restroom. I get that. But, they still have a penis and don’t belong in the girl’s either. I don’t think it’s appropriate for girls to be looking at penises in the locker room and restrooms at school. They need their own restrooms and locker rooms or changing/shower areas.
The argument that they are being single out if they have their own restroom/locker room is ridiculous. They already singled themselves out when they made the decision to transgender.
