Posted on 03/27/2017 4:22:49 AM PDT by NYer
A young mother from Los Angeles, who considers herself to be progressive, experienced a day of reckoning with one of those liberal ideas when a man who was clearly a man entered a womens restroom at Disneyland and stood there watching the women who never said a word out of fear being politically incorrect.
The Illinois Family Institute published a blog from liberal California mom Kristen Quintrall who admitted that she was afraid to write about the experience lest she be called another homophobic mom lashing out at Disney who would then have to deal with the wrath of the internet telling me to kill myself.
But she opted to write the post anyway, and it’s a harrowing read (warning: some explicit language) about what was obviously a very traumatic experience for everyone in the bathroom that day.
She describes herself as pretty progressive and tolerant of most things,” including people who want to transition into the opposite sex. But that all changed one day in a bathroom at Disneyland.
Quintrall explains that she was with her son along with a friend and her little boy in the food court area of California Adventure at Disneyland. Before going back to enjoy the park, they decided to use the restroom. She was standing off to the side waiting with the two boys when she noticed a man, a very manly Hispanic man in a Lakers jersey, walk into the restroom. At first, she thought he entered by mistake and wondered if he might have been looking for his wife or a child. There was a long line of women waiting to use the facilities and the man strolled straight into the room, took up a position off to the side and leaned up against the wall.
I surveyed the room and saw roughly 12 women, children in tow staring at him with the exact same look on their faces,” Quintrall recalls. “Everyone was visibly uncomfortable. We were all trading looks and motioning our eyes over to him like what is he doing in here? Yet every single one of us was silent. And this is the reason I wrote this blog.
If this had been five years ago, she writes, every woman in line would have demanded to know what he was doing in there.
. . . [B]ut in 2017? the mood has shifted. We had been culturally bullied into silenced. Women were mid-changing their babys diapers on the changing tables and I could see them shifting to block his view. But they remained silent. I stayed silent. We all did. Every woman who exited a stall and immediately zeroed right in on him said nothing. And why? B/c I and Im sure all the others were scared of that what if. What if I say something and he says he identifies as a woman and then I come off as the intolerant [expletive] .? So we all stood there, shifting in our uncomfortableness trading looks. I saw two women leave the line with their children. Still nothing was said. An older lady said to me out loud, What is he doing in here? Im ashamed to admit I silently shrugged and mouthed, I dont know. She immediately walked out from a bathroom she had every right to use without fear.
But Quintrall’s concern wasn’t so much that the man was in the room, it was the fact that he wasn’t doing anything except standing around and watching the women, looking smug . . . untouchable.
He had to of noticed that every woman in the long line was staring at him. He didnt care. He then did a lap around the restroom walking by all the stalls. You know, the stalls that have 1 inch gaps by all the doors hinges so you can most definitely see everyone with their pants around their ankles ..
She walked out of that bathroom suddenly realizing that the transgender fad wasn’t such a great idea after all.
. . . [H]onestly I need answers. We cant leave this situation ambiguous any more. The gender debate needs to be addressed .and quickly,” she writes. “There have to be guidelines. It cant just be a feeling. Im sorry. I wish it could, but it cant. Im fine going by if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck its a duck. But this notion that were shamed into silence b/c we might offend someone, has gone too far.
Quintrall did experience some blowback after posting the blog, and she courageous confronted all of the accusations such as the person who told her: “It’s your own fault for not saying anything. I would have spoken up.”
To this she responds, Sure. Don’t we all wish we could always do and say the perfect thing? lol Well unfortunately in the real world, it doesn’t always work out that way. And like many of you, I thought of the perfect thing to say around 11pm that night when I was running it over and over again in my mind trying to fall asleep.
The bottom line is that For one reason or another none of us spoke up, women of all walks of life and some without children. Not one spoke. I froze. We all froze. If you don’t think that’s important, then I’m not sure what to tell you.
Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute applauds Quintralls courage in writing the blog and agrees that she has the right to demand that science matter when it comes to determining ones gender.
The idea that this can just be a feeling is ludicrous and leads to exactly the situation she found herself in while enjoying a day at Disneyland, Higgins writes. Objective sex either matters in private spaces or doesnt matter. And if it doesnt matterif biological sex has no intrinsic meaningwe should eradicate all single-sex contexts everywhere. That would include restrooms, dressing rooms, locker rooms, showers, saunas, steam rooms, and semi-private hospital rooms.
Of course, this would lead to chaos, something that doesnt seem to matter much to the sexual anarchists who are behind this movement to eradicate all public recognition of and respect for sexual differentiation.
The ignorant among us do not yet know that the gender eradication movement believes that identifying as the opposite sex requires nothing more than a verbal assertion. No diagnosis, no cross-dressing, no cross-sex hormone-doping, no surgery needed. Dont misunderstand me. None of those can transmute men into women or vice versa. Unfortunately, I hear even from some purported conservatives that theyre fine with men who wish they were women using womens restrooms as long as theyve been castrated. But such a statement implies that the only issue with trannies in private spaces is the risk of physical predation in the form of peeping or assault. Its not, Higgins writes.
The central issue is the meaning of objective, immutable biological sex.
It’s all theory until put into practice. FYI ping.
Women have no backbones.
I love liberals. A man can take a handful of pills and get floppy tits, and then kick their asses in sports. They have to award them, celebrate them. they’re heroes. ha
This fits nicely with Sharia law.
The 19th amendment was a mistake.
stood there watching the women who never said a word out of fear being politically incorrect.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
All that is required for evil to triumph is for good women to do nothing.
Instead of posting a blog about it, she should have gone to security or other authorities at Disney and told them about it. If he was being as creepy as she describes, they may very well have been forced to take action.
Real-life situations such as these do not exist in the liberal mindset. It’s all theory in their worldview.
What a bunch of drivel! I would have said something, LOUDLY, and clearly. Grow a set, lady, put on your big girl panties and do the right thing! Protect your children. That’s the most important job of a parent.
Men in ladies rooms is NOT okay or normal. You know it, I know it and these freaks know it. Don’t care if I’m called names. The push to make everyone’s fetish, “identity”, or mental illness somehow normal has got to end. And it starts with YOU!
You are exactly right.
Even if an adult woman feels uncomfortable, she has to know her children will feel ten times worse and she has to protect them.
This is a ridiculous idea that will harm children. It must be stopped.
There have to be guidelines. It cant just be a feeling. Im sorry.”
Reality bites, eh proggies? Guess he should have worn a pink pussy hat. Apologizing for being rational, just wow.
She said-identified as a liberal, hope she gets the full LGBTQ/SJW/proggie web wrath and her life becomes miserable. Zero pity from me.
1 The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.
2 Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
Amen. Which is why women do NOT belong in the military, except in support roles.
In the early days of Rush’s radio show, Martin Sheene, then (figurative) mayor of Malibu declare that Malibu would be a ‘Sanctuary City for the Homeless’. So Rush took him up on that and offered to pay for a bus to transport a bunch of homeless and dump them in Malibu. The people there panicked and that ‘declaration’ was quickly overturned.
This man here is a HERO to me. He did more to convert these left-wing women, people that claim to be ‘open-minded’, to our side than ANY OF US could have hoped to do.
What needs to be done is to FIGHT THESE PEOPLE ON THEIR TERMS. If the law says that a man, any man, is welcome to use a womens’ room any time he feels a bit female - then WE NEED MORE LIKE HIM, to help ‘carry out’ the law.
We need to have a little fun with with this...until it gets reversed.
She should not have freaked.
She should have either shot the SOB on the spot or, lacking a loaded firearm, rendered the SOB into a eunuch with an easier to obtain tool.
Only after one or two of these perverts is killed or eunuchized will the people realize that bathrooms cannot be entered by someone whose chromosomes match the designation on the door.
A dozen women (real women, not the brain pureed into mush by lib-think and “doom on you!” peer pressure simulacrum versions) could have said in unison “Get him girls!” and with the asymmetric weaponry every one of them possesses like files, ballpoint pens, nails, teeth, boot heels - every high school boy sooner or later learns that girls fight dirty - kicked his macho ass back to Encino. Or for those bold enough to behave as Americans they could have just shot him. Either way, standing there mute, bullied by a slimy low life male figuratively raping the room, is so cowardly it’s practically Swedish.
There is nothing more satisfying than seeing the Left destroyed by its own stupidity.
.... There have to be guidelines. It cant just be a feeling...
Aren’t feelings the basis of liberalism?
All the women in the rest room should have pointed at him and laughed.
