I don't generally like to comment on politics, but this is more a social issue than a political one, so I consider it fair game. Anyone who's only here for the translations might still want to skip this one, though.
"I don't have anything against the transgenders, it's about the
perverts and predators who could abuse this," or so I often hear. If
that's true, it seems odd that all these proposed "bathroom bills" go by
biological sex or birth certificates or male and female
deoxyribonucleic acid, and don't so much as bring up predatory behavior.
Similarly, the policies many of these people are objecting to apply
specifically to transgender people and not to anyone else, much less to
people trying to commit crimes.
