    Most of the projects are renovations so we are addressing the “bathroom situation” in those too.

    Just to add the decision to do more unisex bathrooms isn’t just because of trans people. It also has to do with proving more privacy for changing babies and comfort and safety. Most people prefer rather than using a stall that has minimal visual privacy and no auditory or olfactory privacy a small room to do their business in.

    For all the cries of "protecting the children" that fools like ATW spew all the time here, these type of people have no clue how child molestation occurs and is allowed to occur.


    It occurs when you provide a class of powerful people to not be accountable. Hence why religious leaders and polticians seem to be the ones most caught diddling with kids.

    Look at any hierarchy. Look at the top of the hierarchy. Dih deep enough and you'll find that group at the top of the hierarchy is hiding multiple child molestation allegations.


    Another place where rampant child molestation occurs is in fundi religious school communities like the Duggar cult that makes sure the children have zero access to sex education to the point where they don't even know how to vocally express they've been sexually molested.

    Combine powerful groups of people that are used to little to no accountability with access to children, you are going to get child molestation.

    u can’t make this sh*t up




    A Missouri man who sought to ban several LGBTQ books from schools for depicting sexual content is now facing a felony charge of second-degree child molestation.

    Ryan Utterback, a 29-year-old parent from a suburb of Kansas City, also faces a misdemeanor charge of fourth-degree domestic assault and, in a separate case, a misdemeanor of furnishing or attempting to furnish pornographic material to a minor.


    Utterback had spoken at a school board meetingin November, as first reported by local news station KMBC-TV, an ABC affiliate, to advocate for the removal of books in North Kansas City Schools libraries that depicted sexual acts.

    During another school board meeting in October, Utterback held up enlarged prints of two pages from the award-winning graphic memoir “Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic,” while a member of a parent association fighting for the ban spoke, arguing that handing the material to a child amounts to “solicitation of a minor.”

    Accusations against Utterback, according to court documents, describe separate instances in 2020 in which he allegedly touched a 12-year-old girl under her clothes and rubbed a teenager’s leg underneath her jeans. Another case alleged in 2021 that he showed pornographic video footage to a child starting from when she was around 4 years old.

    another one just bit the dust


    Police in Waco, Texas, arrested the former pastor at Baylor University on charges that he allowed a sex offender he called his “spiritual mentor” to sexually abuse two young relatives, the Waco Tribune-Herald reported.


    Christopher Hundl, 38, was charged Tuesday with continuous sexual abuse of a child, which is a first-degree felony, and later released on $50,000 bond.


    A statement from Baylor University earlier this month revealed that Hundl resigned from his position as minister for the Baylor chapter of Chi Alpha, a “worldwide Christian ministry sponsored by the Assembly of God Church,” according to the Herald.

    Chi Alpha has been suspended from the university and is under investigation.

    “Baylor University is aware of serious allegations of impropriety among leaders of the independent organization Chi Alpha,” the statement read. “Like all Chi Alpha college-based chapters, Baylor’s organization is led by the assigned Chi Alpha ministers and staff. These individuals are NOT Baylor employees.”


    “We are deeply disturbed and grieved by these serious allegations against Chi Alpha’s leaders, and we will continue to examine Baylor’s affiliated student organization to ensure our students have a healthy and safe co-curricular environment.”

    The sex offender in the case has not yet been arrested, according to the Tribune’s report

    You forgot public school teachers. According to a Dept. of Ed. report from 2004, 1 in 10 students at public schools would be subjected to some form of sexual misconduct by faculty or staff, with about 6% subjected to contact sexual misconduct.

    I would say public schools have more mechanisms in place that don't allow as much unaccountable time with a minor while also having more accountability and accurate reporting. We are speaking in relative terms remember.

    You have to understand the concept of power dynamics. A pastor in a community is a much more protected member of the community than Ms. Becky, 4th grade math teacher. Same goes for polticians.

    Any place that has a very strong hierarchy that isn't accountable much, you'll have massive cover ups of sexual abuse.

    Standing up for what's right is not something Vivek grasps.

    Why is trying to market a product to a different community spitting in the face of consumers? What is wrong with trying to expand marketing of products to different community? How does that hurt anyone? Even if people aren't in the trans community, how does a marketing campaign aimed a separate community cause them any grief? Please explain.

    Who cares?

    Some people do things. And they make literally no difference in the enjoyment of my life. Social media convinced way too many people that it's affecting them AND negatively at that. Some half-hearted, eternal crusade against queer people and rainbows is way more energy than is needed while things like "children murdered at school" and "planet dying" are regular headlines.

    Yup. Gender identity and sexuality are 2 different things.

    The dude is making more outrageous lies to get attention.
    He's a gay dude acting like some valley girl 16 year old character

    and it works for him, he's making money doing this charade

    the real trans people think they are the opposite sex, not doing this 'first day as a girl' crap where he didn't even chop off his balls
