Who Are The Real Sexual Predators?

The right wing has been on the warpath against transgender people using the bathroom of their expressed gender, as opposed to the gender assigned at birth. In that entire discussion, I’ve seen the conservatives find one single incident in Canada several years ago where a man pretended to be transgender to get into a women’s homeless shelter and assault them. One incident.

Conservatives are notorious for telling us that criminals don’t obey laws, and point to gun free school zone laws as proof. Yet now, somehow magically, criminals are going to obey a law that says to not enter a women’s restroom? And that’s the justification for violating the rights of transgender women, because some non-trans man will maybe do something wrong?

I suggest they focus on an area where there is proven sexual assault. I suggest they pass a law mandating that women and children are not allowed in churches since pastors and church staff have a proven record of being sexual predators of both women and children.

Here’s a list of recent stories in the last few months. This is just a few months of quick stories collected together. Imagine how bad it must be for a full year! Imagine all those women and children being violated by religious authority figures! So if Republicans want to really protect women and children, pass a law barring anyone who works in a church from having contact with women and children. (I say this in jest, in case anyone is stupid enough to believe I mean it, but I say it to show how stupid these laws are.)

And here’s that list.

    Cara:

    Random thoughts if you will allow:

    – I noticed a story from North Carolina in your list. Hmm. Guess no one is reading news stories about their own at that state

    – There remains no Republican backlash when Cailyn Jenner used a female facility at Trump Tower. What will happen if someone of the rank of Helmsley’s ‘little people’ dared the same at Trump Tower? Of course the proof is in the pudding if Jenner ever dared go to Ted Cruz’ office and use the female facility there, or use any female restroom at North Carolina.

    – I personally knew one of the Catholic Church’s notorious pederast priests from my home parish. I daily ponder the thought of the destroyed lives he wrought on countless neighbours and parishioners; he went unpunished (as the Church seems intent to demand of others) while the people he destroyed must pick up the pieces with no help of recovery.

    – I recall the early 1970s when Congress passed ERA. The opponents complained that it would allow men to use the women’s room and women to use the men’s room. They blocked ERA yet still make the same silly excuses.

    Yep, stalkers have no difficulty committing their crimes, but North Carolina and other states find time to muck up the reality that more transsexual persons are bullied, beaten, assaulted, murdered each year and those professors of law can’t find it in them to apply much effort to prosecute the real criminals who commit those real crimes.

    Did I read that Dennis Hastert got only 15 months at a ‘Club Fed’ on an accessory conviction but skates on the real charges because neither Congress nor the states see fit to abolish all statutes of limitations on the heinous crimes Hastert admitted committing? He’ll rest easy on early release and that cushy guh’mint pension Republicans eagerly condemn when it goes to someone else.
