“Coed locker room plan sparks surge of outrage”
WorldNetDaily.com – November 3, 2007
A surge of outrage is developing in Maryland, where the governing council in Montgomery County is planning to vote on a plan to open the doors of its public restrooms, locker rooms and other facilities to those who “perceive” they are that gender.
“From what I’m reading, the person with the gender identity confusion is being protected by what she or he FEELS he or she is. Thus, we’d have to protect this person’s gender based upon what is in his or her MIND. So, if I’m in a bathroom all by myself late at night, and a man walks in, I am supposed to be okay with this? If I’m at a pool, in a women’s locker room, and a man walks in ““ I’m supposed to be okay with this? This is truly unbelievable, and I’m embarrassed that Montgomery County is even spending its time on this piece of nonsense,” a resident, identified as “Lisa,” wrote to her elected representative on the board.
The county plan, Bill 23-07 specifically would augment the state’s non-discrimination plan by adding “gender identity” as a protected class.
Not only would the proposal govern facilities such as restrooms and locker rooms in public buildings, other public facilities such as those in McDonald’s, Chucky Cheese and others would be as opened as well.
