NEW YORK – A transgender man has sued New York City after he says he was booted from a male locker room at a public pool.

Bryan Ellicott said Tuesday that he went to the Staten Island pool last July to cool off. He says a staff member ordered him to use the women's locker room.

The Associated Press calling her a "him" doesn't help.

Asking her to use the women’s room sounds reasonable to me.

I guess there are some people who can use any bathroom they want, and if they’re not allowed to, it’s payday.

It is amazing to me that people who claim their profession is to desimminate the news feel the need to write in a code that must be deciphered for their work to make any sense.

Reality doesn’t intrude on the media. This is not a man, and they do not care to report factually.

Sometimes it is hard to tell what the reporter is talking about because of this.

At least with homosexuals, imho, there is a case for it being as a result of some kind of abuse as a child, but this transgendered stuff is a totally different kind of sickness, imho. And these cases of late where parents are warping their children to think they are what they aren’t, I just don’t understand that kind of abuse.

What is a “transgender man”?

Is it a female surgically altered, a male surgically altered, a male trapped in a woman's body, a female trapped in a man's body or just someone who is weird and wants to show off. Perhaps it is just someone who wants to get free money from the taxpayers through a lawsuit.

The terminology has become convoluted and confused. The striving for victim status is endemic. The lawyers have found chasing the gender confused and sexually perverted more profitable than chasing ambulances.

Exactly. Knowing the reporter’s ideology allows me to figure out what actually happened but it has to be a confusing read for the politically unaware, someone who doesn’t recognize the propaganda. How does a writer keep his job when a large chunk of readers know he is a lying peice of excrement and the another large chunk are left scratching their heads?

Translation:

Mentally ill woman, under the delusion that she is a man, says she was ordered to leave the men’s locker room at a public pool and use the appropriate locker room. As is typical for the radical mentally ill population, she is suing NYC over this reasonable request.

Sadly, it takes careful reading to determine whether the mentally ill whiner is a woman being inaccurately described because she is under the delusion that she is male, or a mentally ill man who was misidentified in the locker room because he is taking hormones and has curves.

If you follow the picture essay, and pull out your leftist-to-normal decoder ring you will find that this woman is taking male hormones but has not yet mutilated her genetalia. It can be inferred that upon seeing a female, complete with female reproductive organs, in the men’s locker room the staff asked the woman to use the women’s locker room. Rather than realize that normal men may not wish to use the same facilities as a mentally unstable woman, she has sued the city for descriminating against her instead of descriminating against the normal men.

I work with a really sweet woman. She is a nurse. She just discovered her 20 year old son has moved in with his boyfriend and now wants to be a female. He is wearing women’s clothing. She is devastated and said it is destroying her marriage. If not for the media push for this sort of thing, I doubt he would be doing this. I am saddened for her. It can’t be easy.

I told my daughter, who is 30, about the situation and she said she would buy him Match Box cars and Tonka trucks, set him down in the living room and tell him they were going to start over. I laughed but it really isn’t funny.

A solution to this problem would be three restrooms:

Men

Women

I'm thinking a really ugly transgender because what's the problem otherwise? Or do they mean transvestite which is something different?

You nailed it, and this is something on which EVERYONE can agree: the terminology needs to be standardized and clarified.

Just as you stated, right now, “transgender man” can mean many different things. (Out of this story’s context, I usually interpret the term to mean a medically male person who identifies as female. Obviously HERE it’s a medical female who identifies as male.)

Whatever one’s views on “transgender rights,” could we at least be clear about what’s what? Or is even saying something like “born male” going to be an OFFENSIVE TRIGGER!?!!

No such thing as a “transgender man.” You can cut off anything you want, comb your hair anyway you want, and dress anyway you want, but nothing, absolutely nothing will change your genetic structure. You either is or you ain’t a man or woman genetically.

When are we going to stop having this crap stuffed down our throat whenever we go someplace?

With the statistically insignificant exception of a few chromosomal variants, the vast, vast majority of humans are either XX or XY chromosome. No amount of surgery or drugs can alter that stark fact. Male or female.

The recent Time magazine cover person is not a woman, but an effigy.

Wow! What memories of the Snap-On pinup calendar. Long since banned in my workplace for reasons of PC, `harrassment’, `inclusivity’, and not creating a `hostile work environment’.

If present trends continue, all public facilities are going to be open to whoever comes, whatever they are. Normal people will withdraw from public facilities and the LGBTQT and whatever else will have won.

They won’t be normal when the public school commissars get done with them; some will withdraw and be home schooled, some will refuse gym activities and be tolerated or disciplined, some will be converted. It is going to be an unholy mess and the parents of kids who don’t go along with the Leftist party line will be investigated.

I'd be dubious if he made an appearance in the women's restroom. I'm not one to go peering into somebody else's crotch.

I do feel sorry for this self-maimed individual and his/her self-made bladder problem.

“Family” is meant primarily for diapering, IMO, but the room is open to whoever gets in there first and locks the door.

Never let your young ones go into public restrooms. This issue will eventually lead to rape in pubic restrooms. These folks are begging to create unnecessary pain to others. So tired of this twisted crap from the lgbt annals.
