Indiana Republican Senator Jim Tomes as proposed a bill that would make it a crime for transgender people to use public bathrooms and locker rooms that do not conform to their sex at birth. Other states, including Florida, have proposed similar measures in the past.

The YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties has disregarded the privacy and safety concerns of Women and Girls by allowing Men and Boys who “identify as female” to use locker rooms and other facilities intended for use by women and Girls. The YMCA adopted this abusive policy that hurts Women and Girls after men claimed it made them sad that other people recognize that they are Male.
Women and Girls don’t want to see your penis, whether or not you think it is a Woman’s penis.
Here’s hoping this ridiculous ideology dies soon.
