Which Bathroom?!

This is not about hate. I'll just say that up front. I don't want to see anybody get hurt, deprive them, or wish them any harm. With that being said, what I do hate is the over use of the word "hate". Just because I disagree with something or someone does not mean that I hate it or hate them. Yet, this word has been redefined and used as a dramatic illustration to demonize those of us who are in favor of House Bill 2. The use of the word is nothing more than a desperate attempt to juxtapose the civil rights movement with the gay rights "movement". The general idea is to promote a sense of sameness or similarly in order to spark outrage for a "righteous cause". But the two are nothing alike. The civil rights movement was born out of slavery, in response to an institutionalized plot, designed to disenfranchise, disregard and ultimately destroy and entire race of people. Africans were kidnapped and brought here to America, stripped of theirs names, and cultural identities, and were forced to do slave labor for 4 centuries! Gay, or transgender people were never forced to do anything. They made a series of decisions. They decide to "come out". They decide to live openly, and they decide to let the rainbow flag fly. That's fine. After all, this is America, but the thing about decisions is, not everybody will agree or has to agree with them. The fight for gay rights, is totally different. Ther cause is a battle for recognition, and not a battle for rights. We all have rights. The right to privacy being one of them. It seems to me as if these people are fighting for the right not to be private, and the right to have EVERYONE agree with them. I have the right to disagree with anything except their agenda, apparently. I'm I the only one who sees the hypocrisy in this?

My own personal cause is, always has been and always will be my family. I do not want my 9 year old daughter, your 9 year old daughter or anyone else's 9 year old daughter to see man parts in the ladies room. I should have the right as a parent to decide what my children should be exposed to without being accused of hating anyone who is transgender. I've said it before and I'll say it again. Those who feel the need to force feed their agendas to the public are no different that the political machine that they claim are oppressing them. The alphabet community (LGBT), are nothing more than bullies with a blatant disregard for anyone else's rights. Point blank!

What many people fail to realize is that had conservatives not proposed such a bill this would not be an issue. The alphabet community would have done what they had to do. Most I suspect would have used the bathroom without much thought. But when they're told no, it sparks controversy. The absolute worst thing that you can do is give a cause to someone who is constantly looking for one, or tangle wig someone who is always looking for a fight.
