Where Are My Rights?

I usually refrain from writing anything negative or controversial, but I just want to get a few things off my chest.

I come home from a hard days work, turn on the TV and instead of a good Andy Griffith show playing, its usually the news. The latest news here in the Charlotte area is they just passed a rule that men can use women bathrooms and women can use the men's.


Why? Because its their right. OK, if your confused weather your a man or a woman, that's your problem. If your gay, well that's not one of my sins but your own sins, and for the record, It doesn't make me like you any more or less. It is what it is. You can be what ever you want to be, but when it comes to me having to share a woman's bathroom or shower house with a man, that steps on my toes. Where are my rights here? Hello! Can I not just be a private woman knowing I'm in a place where we all have the same anatomy? So that's that.

Now, lets move on to the shopping places and restaurants. Supposedly if you have a problem, you can find a dog to help you with that problem and you have the right to take it anywhere with you. Just slap on one of those vest on it and your problem is solved. Where are my rights here? I don't want a dog sniffing at me while I'm searching for new clothes or eating a cheeseburger. If I smell a dog while i'm eating, I loose my appetite. I don't care how much you try to convince me that your dog is clean. They don't wear underwear!


What about those (like my daughter) that when a dog is around, it triggers an episode of allergies that's just unreal.
I seen a dog in a grocery cart before. Really? I put my food in there! Someone who knows i'm like this, told me I must hate dogs. No! I love dogs, puppies, cats, kittens, etc. But that's how the world sees people if they don't agree on something. Always throwing in the word hate. Sad.

One more thing, smoking. So they have banned smoking around here in public places. Except my office! I do not smoke but the employees here do. Again, where are my rights? I'm out numbered. They do not respect or take in consideration that I want to have healthy lungs and rather not go home smelling like a tobacco factory.


I'm used to it though. Just like the other crazy things happening in the world today, Ill just get used to it. I don't have to like it.

But hey, at least I still have my own bathroom here.

  2. The new laws have happened in a few cities, often facing a huge backlash often based on over-exaggerated and paranoid fears. I've known a few transgender people personally one of which was a FtM you'd swear was born male and none of them belonged in the bathroom of their birth gender.

    I heard a story about Thailand (which for that part of the world is much more accepting of transgender people) where they created the "third' bathroom for transgender people.

    Many of them considered it offensive for them to single them out as such.

    You can never make everyone truly happy. Like the dogs in the stores, and the smokers, two sides complain about their "rights". There is a conflict created.

  3. I am assuming it will come to 'RESTROOMS'. Each with a lock on the door. But I still don't like it.
    You hit a cord, 'where are my rights?'. We have pushed this PC until I get sick of hearing something new every day.

    We do have a problem here in the USA. Many countries I have been in have bathrooms with secure stalls, but it has been that way since God created toilets, and businesses could not afford two toilets.

    Here it is different in our life time (mine a long time) we have always had men's and women's, Boys and Girls, restrooms.

    I know in my mind when this reaches schools, some boys will be in and out of girls restrooms as a joke! Count on it.

    you have hit a nerve on every point you have made and I agree!

    Don't get blown away today!
