The House of Representatives will meet today on the House floor to vote on an amendment that will block the Pentagon from forcing female soldiers to shower with men as part of former President Obama's 'transgender training'.

The Rules Committee approved the amendment on Wednesday, and House members will vote on the amendment Thursday, July 13. The Hartzler amendment is named for Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-Mo.), who wrote it.

The amendment will block former President Obama's controversial policy to build “dignity and respect” for “transgender Soldiers.”

If passed, the bill will also cut funding for expensive medical treatment "related to gender transition to a person entitled to medical care.”

Hartzler estimates that the cost of sex change surgeries alone could reach to $1.35 billion over the next 10 years.

The Army does not require gender confused men to undergo a sex change. Gender confused men must present a doctor's note confirming they suffer from gender dysphoria. The Army then changes his "gender marker" to "female" in DEERS [the Army’s personnel system – Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System].

Gender confused men will then be allowed to shower and bunk with biological women.

Presentation slides from the Army’s PowerPoint guidance class were leaked to The Federalist blog.

The transgender training modules lowers women's resistance to showering with naked men. Women are instructed not to expect privacy and to ignore the reality that men have penises.

One of the Training Modules states:

“Following her transition from male to female (which did not include sex reassignment surgery) and gender marker change in DEERS, a transgender Soldier begins using female barracks, bathroom, and shower facilities. Because she did not undergo a surgical change, the Soldier still has male genitalia.”

Additionally, female soldiers are cautioned not to cover themselves or turn away from gender confused men in the shower so as not to insult or humiliate them.

Obama's transgender military policy was scheduled to go into effect on July 1st.

But on June 30, Defense Secretary James Mattis postponed full implementation of Obama's policy for six months while the Pentagon "studies" its effect on military morale.

Currently there are 15,000 gender confused soldiers serving in the military.

    Don't the army have enough sex scandel?

  • Renee26

    Ok, they rape women and cover it up...I don't care about who showers where as long as those showering are comfortable and safe...I'm wondering if they have shower stalls or if it's an open area like in the prison movies. I won't even shower around other women and I'm thanks

  • Gina7169

    It's open showers, no stalls or partitions.

  • BOSS


  • BOSS

    Open area

  • Ms.Vanilla

    What about biological females rights? What if I do not want to shower with someone born male?

  • Anunnaki

    Are transgender serving on front line, like in time of war, if so Why. they are not mentally stable, they dont know what they are, they live in a fantasy world.*****shrugs****

  • Phillybruh

    Won't stop the record number of rapes that happen in the military..If the country knew how much the VA was paying women who were sexually assaulted in the military it far outpaces what they pay for a sex change lol and its a dead point any way. If they are diagnosed while in the military the country is on the hook for all treatment related to their service. And they always pay.

  • Renee26

    See that's a no go for me....I couldn't serve anyway because I don't like being told what to do

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920


  • Renee26

    Right....Let's not forget about LaVena Lynn Johnson who they claim killed herself but it sure looked like murder to everyone else

  • Phillybruh

    So what's stable about a 19 yr old, that's on the front lines?

  • Shaun M

    This is not a good idea and it may cause more problems...

  • Silknsatin

    I really don't know when anyone in this day and age would be showering in an open shower area anyway, unless it's during a deployment or something. Most barracks are now more like apartments...each person with their own individual room, but sharing a kitchen and bathroom (with a regular shower stall). Even on deployment, we eventually had mobile showers brought in, that had individual stalls. So yeah...they probably need to worry more about the assaults that are taking place in the military, more so than where these individuals are showering, because I don't even remember showering in an open bay type environment in Basic Training, and definitely not after that.

  • Renee26

    Ok...especially when the DOD own statistics say 1 of 3 women who join will face a sexual assault...They have bigger fish to fry

  • Phillybruh

    Not in basic training, unless it has changed since I was in the air force.

  • hotntot95

    My son is serving and I worry and pray everyday for him and others..but ...women that serve are very brave...I couldn't do it.

  • Rarechild93

    I hear ya! They tend to lie with vengeance when it comes to the sexual assaults that have taken place. Its a sad day when you seek to defend your country and the very individuals that are suppose to be on your side are the sameones that are attacking you,.

  • Yardgirl

    I am thankful for your son's service and will pray for his safety! My dad was career army and it's not an easy job.

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    My child is out in August praise him. Prayers for other folks loved ones.

  • hotntot95 dad served 20 in the Navy...I have my own reserved feelings about it...but thanks..

  • Silknsatin

    There shouldn't be any reason for you to have to shower with anyone, unless you choose to. I really don't even understand the purpose of this story. I can't think of any place in the military with open bay type shower areas. All of the facilities that have showers, have shower stalls. And if you have an issue with getting dressed or undressed in front of a transgender, those same facilities also have bathroom stalls.

  • OP2

    Liberalism is a dysfunctional social disease engineered & forced by demo-crats. Voters 'vehemently rejected liberalism' on so many levels which is why the GOP has won The House, Senate, Congress, Courts all across the board.

    Thank God that commonsense, dignity and respect for self and others have prevailed in today via that policy to protect women from more trials and tribulation.

    Gender dysphoria and confusion exists in the mind and should not be visited or projected onto other folks in their private space. -he can't be allowed to find comfort in a zone at the expense of making women, girls and children very uncomfortable and afraid for their safety, dignity and self-respect.

    A man with a dislike for his own male genitalia with a pretentious air that his body gender parts doesn't exist (although 'girls, women and children' can clearly them) should be dealt with in truth form and shown their own private bathroom instead of encouraging a mental issue.

  • OP2

    Yes. No need to compound the problem for women.

    Unlike universities who hide behind their so-called private officers and private investigation while giving victims the third degree or runaround, in the military new policies have been put in place to now help women instead of covering up rape where they can report this to outside agencies and hospitals while bringing forth charges.

  • OP2

    Not all women in the military live and serve in an environment like that. That is why it is important to study up and score high for the selective jobs in good selective environment. ;)

  • OP2

    Some are joining the service as a way to force taxpayers or the military to pay for their surgeries. -gamin' the system. ijs

  • SuperScooper1

    I just Googled this and am saddened I didn't know this story before. I hate to play armchair detective, but what do you think happened? It sounds like someone was jealous of her/she fought trying to protect herself. Sounds like a total cover-up. Between this and the Pat Tillman story I'm looking at the DOD with the side-eye.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Basic training has open bays. And that's ALL they have. No privacy at all.

  • Phillybruh

    They can join the service, but if it is a condition diagnosed before they join it won't be included in their service connection. Chances are the condition won't even allow them to enter. You can't game the system until your in the military.

  • ?Royalty?

    Apparently their rights trump ours.
    This is reason number 5946161 why I wasn't falling all over myself for our former POTUS.

  • Silknsatin

    Have you been to Basic Training? I have. Granted, it was many years ago. But no, we didn't have open bay showers. As I stated in my posts above, I really can't think of any place in the military, except MAYBE on a deployment, where there MIGHT be an open bay type of shower situation.

  • Roderick2011

    Keep troll alive.

  • Dowoop

    I wouldnt want to shower in an open stall with a biological woman never mind a woman with a penis.

  • Dowoop

    Ive been to basic training and we had stalls.

  • Silknsatin's been a minute since I've been through Basic Training...but we had stalls also.

  • Simone

    Perfectly put! Transgenders (as they call themselves) are entitled to equal rights but not extra rights. Women have rights and should not have our rights compromised by forcing us in personal spaces (i.e. bathrooms & locker rooms) with a man who feels like a woman or whatever today.

  • Unity Love Peace

    when I went through it was open bay too. 43 females at one time and we all had 15 minutes to shower and get dressed

  • Truth

    Obama fucked up a lot of stuff all he cared about was furthering gay people !

  • Vegas1989

    This stuff is out of control now. When I go to the VA hospital now the bathrooms are confusing. I can't find a woman only bathroom. It's crazy. You aren't in the room with the Dr. it will be about 3 peeps in there with you. When I went to the new building and peeps started acting funny and my Dr. came in there...I went plum off...I said, "What the hell is going on here?" Call the damn police I don't care...If you ain't my DR.and you are in this room I'm about to get butt naked and run out this room and scream y'all touching me in places that I don't want to be touch...Man they ran out that room and my Dr. busted out laughing.... She later called me and told me what was going on....SMH....It's a long story and I wish I could share it but they are taking care of these transgender folks...

  • Mbailey

    I CAN'T remember which conservative congressional male member it was; but he was the leader of a political campaign to stop women from insisting the armed services in the 90s. This right-wing male politicians did not believe the military was served having females in their ranks. I wonder if he was behind this bill to push women out of the services by scaring them with the prospect of having males in their showers and bathrooms.

  • Vegas1989

    When I was in,in 96 and was the only female in the field. I had my own place and shower. I told them if any one try to come in my room or the bathroom when I was in there...I told that I was going to blank them....Rhymes with will.....LOL....I didn't know at that time that I was threating them and I told them I was going take all their money and savings...LOL...they believed me...but I was in the with a lot of white boys...

  • MistaO

    This is just stupid.

  • Elevated Soul

    Obama hated women but then again most gay men especially closeted ones,hate women.

    The gay agenda he forced on society only seem to impact women...You don't see no d@mn gay woman talkking about standing in the shower with men,because she knows what will happen to her.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Yep, but times have changed I see. When my aunt went it was all female, now it's co-ed so ain't no telling what they have for showers. My aunt went in 84.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Oh, ok... Times r a changin.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    "Liberalism is a dysfunctional social disease engineered and forced by demo-crats"
    Correction.... It is being engineered and used by the devil with his own agenda. He starts out with something we all may agree with such as women's rights, then he uses bait and switch to throw in wicked evil things such as gay rights and transgender in order to destroy the world. We need to stop blaming each other or one particular party for this world going to the toilet and put blame where it belongs.......LUCIFER.

  • klwbaby

    From my understanding, she was raped and they poured acid on her to cover up the assault. Her family was led to believe she committed suicide. But when her body was returned to her parents, she looked nothing like herself and someone had super glued gloves on her hands. And if u read the autopsy report, she had a broken nose, missing teeth, her nails were destroyed probably because she was fighting for her life, she had acid burns on her genitals and she also had gas poured on her. Now if someone wanted to kill themselves, why would they do that especially since she had a big azz gun that she carried around.

  • Fly By Day and Night

    Women should not be in the army

    That hasn't happened to me at my VA clinic yet. The bathrooms are still M/F separate entrances and stalls. I have an appt the end of the month closer to the Bay Area at a VA Hospital, and I'll be eagle eying the bathrooms. There also doesn't need to be anyone in the room with my provider unless it's one Female during my Yearly Lady appt. I remember Basic Training, of course Females were in a Different Area than the males, but it was like we were NOT supposed to interact with them at all. Now you want females to have s chlongs in the shower with them, because the person attached to it "feels" some type of way? I was sent to Mental Health because I needed a Hysterectomy, and I was only 25. The Doctors were stuck on Reproducing, and told me I had to go before they would do the surgery. I had to go to a Psychiatrist because I NEEDED my organs removed, but people can join the military, NOT have to go to Mental Health, NOT even commit to the surgery, and everyone else is supposed to welcome them with open arms? Just like myself and many other parents were told"The military didn't issue a defendant. If we wanted you to have one, we would have issued you one", they didn't issue anyone this BS either, but the Red Sea is still being parted for it. Vets are not being compensated by the VA for PTSD, so many VA Dr's diagnose them with PTSD, knowing they won't be taken care of. You know any condition we had prior to enlisting is a Pre Existing Condition, and the VA won't compensate for those. I know I'm getting ahead of myself, but I'm curious to see how that's going to play out down the road. Will the VA compensate Vets with this PreExisting Condition? What if they develop Depression, Anxiety, or S uicidal Ideations while serving, and blame it on not being accepted for who they are? That would be Service Connected and the Va could pay compensation for that. First the Refugees were placed in THE DORM I was in in Basic Training in Lackland, Now this. The military was changing when I left in 2000, but I never ever expected this, and I'm sure the Retired Major who presented at my Admissions Window One day as a woman, then later handed me an ID card for a Retired Male Major never did either.

  • Nonya Bizness

    Dec92-Feb93@Lackland. Females all showered in one big shower. We had separate stalls to use the bathroom, but they were a few feet away from the giant shower with multiple shower heads.

  • OP2

    ...who has minions that does his work. Let's get real isn't it (or the blame) all one in the same given that minions or devilish people are the ones who does his work? Therefore, they are to be held accountable for their own action and choices for writing policies or partaking in negative behavior.

    Geesh! Nothing like some Black folks who live for shifting blame (or scapegoating others) and coming up with some type of superstition or cliche to avoid personal accountability. Personal accountability and responsibility lies within each and every individual.

    We are suppose to hold each other; leaders, paid politicians, etc. accountable for negative behavior or actions that impact the lives of others. Who wrote those policies and should therefore be held blamed or accountable?

    Who in the right mind is going to waste time believing that the judge will capture or hold the devil responsible and lock him in a jail cell when GOD each of us the freewill to choose and make choices??

  • OP2

    Keep discussions and opinions alive. People rejected what the liberals were peddling and shoving in our faces while trying to manipulate and control the public with PC rhetoric and negative adjectives. However, self-empowerment for individuals came back in the form of voting booths.

    PC only taught people how to publicly double-talk (to avoid liberal backlash) while secretly voting their real thoughts, to the detriment of democrats in charge. -those are the facts!

    Fact: take a look at how 'the People' turned the power (of all three gov't branches on multiple levels) over to the conservatives. ijs

  • OP2

    True. That is why they will not bring that up and wait until after they have completed 120 days, including bootcamp, to make such a claim. -they've got game! ;)

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Sandra, First of all I never said God would lock the devil up and hold him accountable. The Bible teaches us not to go back and forth about his word so I'll leave it at that. And second, who said I am black? You? Good day to you.

  • Gina7169

    I served in the Air Force. When it came to showering, it was eyes forward, wash up, and exit lol. It wasn't too bad, just follow directions, keep a low profile, finish the training, and go on to your next duty station. After training you get alot of freedom. It's just like having a regular 9-5, except you're held to a higher standard.

  • Roderick2011

    Oh yeah Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid are so unpopular.

    But you're right the racist and bigots like you came out in droves to support Trump because whenever there is an attempt to force this country to give all Americans equal rights there's a backlash from people like you who fear people who aren't like them.

    What I find interesting is Trump is making sure that America is no longer the world's leader but dammit you and your ilk will get to discriminate against those 'evil' gays and transsexuals.

    Your victory will be pyrrhic.

  • 4RGSpot

    Hell yes, and quickly!!!!!!!!!!

  • 4RGSpot

    This is straight f#$%& bull$hit!!!!!!!!! Why does women's right need to be disrespected and violated because of some confused damn man?

    Get these flakes out of the military because what wr don't need is sone confused @ss person during war caussing US. Soldiers or other armed force military members getting killed because some man mothuf_cca wants to be a damn woman...... GTFOHWTBS forreal.

  • OP2

    Discriminate? Not! Free will (and personal choice for faith, values and belief) is a God-given. As such, people have a right to vote however they choose.

    Btw, gay folks have legal rights.

  • Roderick2011

    Btw, gay folks have legal rights.

    Wrong. Gays didn't have the right to marry until two years ago and now conservatives want to enshrine discrimination into the law by using the canard of 'religious freedom'.

    It's sad that the only way that conservatives can win is by using fear.

  • SandraRose

    You sat there and said nothing while Obama pushed his gay agenda.

  • 4RGSpot

    Well being we never hung out once ever in our lives you can't sit there and say what I did or didn't do. I don't come to these gossip sites to tell my personal business or what movements I partake in or not just to read and give my opinion like others.

    Being, I am a military, you can bet your bottom dollar, I don't want men I serve with taking showers wirh me. That is my right, just like they feel they have rights.

  • OP2

    Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, Public Schools will probably always exist. The scare tactic is Dem making us think that the GOP will take it all from us.

    We are trillions of dollars in debt and have to pay that borrowed money back. Therefore, it has always been typical for the party in power to either cut, expand or increase funding for social programs. -it's nothing new!!

    A backlash from fearing people who are not like them? Every impoverished citizen who qualifies, regardless of ethnicity, have a right to the free social welfare programs.

    However, having a spiritual connection with the Almighty Holy God (faith-based) is something different altogether and the practice thereof is a God-Given right. Political parties did not exist during Biblical times. God is not affiliated with man-made politics and legal systems that vary across the planet [because they are man-made].

    Conservatives (whether Democrats or Republican) did not write the Torah or Bible and Commandments. -people have a right to study the scriptures and practice their faith and beliefs. Unfortunately, for you the Holy God has conservative principles, spiritual laws and guidances via his Word. -yet, there is a type of god or deities that condones all that which goes the Word or of the Holy God and teachings of the Biblical Jesus.

  • divainkpen

    The entire bathroom issue is non existent. Bottom line civilian or military, simple solution is obvious. Men's, Ladies and Unisex. Now I'm just a regular person. Clearly Unisex is the obvious answer. You must have all three.

  • OP2

    Fear??? That adjective should not be confused with "having standards, moral values from adhering to one's faith" (beliefs according to the Bible, Torah, Koran, etc.). Religious Freedom to practice one's faith and spiritual beliefs connected to their Holy God is a God-Given Right that no man or politics can take away.

    Ever changing man-made rights via politics for votes is one thing. Spiritual faith/beliefs are rights condoned by the spiritual laws (Commandments) of a higher power: the Holy God.

    You do realize that Conservative voters are also of Black, Latino and other various ethnicities. Even fed "Conservative Democrats" flipped to voting Republican for a number of reasons:

    The ever-growing crime rate; fed up with being taxed to death; the need to bring back JOBs; the idea of School Vouchers giving fed up families choices for their children to be educated in an ideal setting instead of being trapped in dysfunctional, crime-ridden failing urban schools designed to set students for learning how to not have moral values; self-respect; personal accountability for negative behavior.

    Parents and their children can hardly wait to leave those failing urban schools where even the teachers have given up due to the dysfunctional liberal behavior which is a distraction for classroom learning.

    Now, families can find their ideal school setting which coincides how they would like to raise their children. -instead of being set up and programmed how to wildout and liberally behave their way to jails and prisons while running up tab on STDs/HIV rates and abandoned/fatherless children who will repeat the cycle.

  • Roderick2011

    That adjective should not be confused with "having standards, moral values from adhering to one's faith" (beliefs according to the Bible, Torah, Koran, etc.).

    OP2Religious Freedom to practice one's faith and spiritual beliefs connected to their Holy God is a God-Given Right that no man or politics can take away.

    That's exactly true but for the past five decades conservatives and Evangelical Christians have been playing the victim card pretending that someone is preventing them from going to church as they want.

    OP2: The ever-growing crime rate; fed up with being taxed to death; the need to bring back JOBs; the idea of School Vouchers giving fed up families choices for their children to be educated in an ideal setting instead of being trapped in dysfunctional, crime-ridden failing urban schools designed to set students for learning how to not have moral values; self-respect; personal accountability for negative behavior.

    Ha,ha,ha!! The so-called rising crime rate is a function of the growing inequality in the wealth gap and racist justice system which Republicans make worse with their policies.

    Let's see Republicans are poised to take away health coverage for 22 million Americans so they can give the wealthiest 1% a tax break.

    School choice is another conservative canard to de-fund teachers' unions which usually support Democrats. These Republicans love charter schools because they transfer public assets to their campaign donors

    OP2: liberal behavior?

    Like Newt Gingrich and Donald Trump who have nine wives between them but are very wealthy.

    Of course you wrongly equate poverty with immorality just like a lot of these wealth and prosperity preachers do while the Bible states that it's just the opposite.

    Many people in the inner city may have antisocial and self-destructive behavior because they have lost hope and don't care any more.

    Having to chose between unemployment and selling drugs then becoming a part of the for-profit prison complex they don't have many choices.

    It's funny that many rural whites face the same obstacles with high rates of poverty and drug use but Republicans don't consider them 'immoral', but they are considered 'real Americans'.

    Thanks for finally showing your true colors

  • SuperScooper1

    Exactly; If someone wanted to kill themselves they wouldn't do that. I wonder what the DOD told her parents about what happened? I can't believe they thought the family was dumb enough not to examine the body of their child. What in the what? Thank you for the details. While they're horrific, more people need to know about this case; I've definitely been spreading the word.

  • Ant Hill

    You sound like a low key dyke or tranny lover, no the answer is men and women only, there is no need for any tranny/obama made up bathrooms.

  • OP2

    This is true. I have relatives who are evangelical Pastors, Bishops and friends. I can personally say it is true that the agenda has organized liberal folks to come in the house of worship will ill-intentions only to cry out -phobia this and that because reading the scriptures are like kryptonite to them. In turn, liberal democrat politicians have set out an agenda to shut them or keep them from practicing their faith. People sleeping around in the church but holding leadership positions are asked to stepdown and they also get angry claim anti- this or that. It's a mess. They can find a liberal devilish street church to attend.

    The inner-city folks have lost hope because of the dysfunctional parent(s) that they came from who set them up for failure in life. Most of them just mindlessly and irresponsibly & impulsively bop-bodies and push out unwanted babies who grow up feeling unloved, abandoned, lost, etc. while growing up in a hellish crime-infested environment. -everything (change) starts in the minds and hearts of individuals first and foremost. Negative street music perpetuating a negative mentality and criminal behavior are not helping the urban Black community.

  • YellowSauce

    why is this an all or nothing game ? ... meaning ... why does one group have to be violated for another to be respected... this creates the divide ... where I MAY have been supportive NOW I have to be defensive ... this is why government and politicians are not trusted ... i consider ANYTHING tricky, evil .. I barely like to change in front of other women so why would I feel comfortable showering in front of a tranny ... even though I have no problem with them i don't want to take a shower with them either ... You would think they would want the soldiers to be the most comfortable they can be while IN WAR ... THIS is also why I don't trust humans ... people make the craziest decisions in reference to other people ESPECIALLY in positions of power ....

  • Roderick2011

    How exactly? Because we don't believe in trying to legislate morality which is something even God doesn't do because he gives us free will?

    Obviously you haven't attended churches lately because the church has everything inside that's in the world and yet you keep equating liberal with evil so I see you've been brainwashed quite well.

    OP2:Negative street music perpetuating a negative mentality and criminal behavior are not helping the urban Black community.

    That's the chicken/egg argument. If the music is an outlet to talk about conditions then it's not the cause it's just an expression just like old Negro spiritual were a catharsis for slaves, but you think everything associated with black people is negative.
    You're obviously one of those self-hating blacks if you are truly black.

  • OP2

    Self-hating and brainwashed, not by far. Standards and independent thinker...for sure.

    But, some of you are left behind because you are still asleep; stubborn and overlook the facts: Dem Party of today is not the same MLK type of our Parents & Grandparents. They sold out long ago for political careers because a number of Blacks will vote a certain way anyway regardless of the empty promises or how their plight have worsen. They are taken for granted. But, Conservative Democrats with a mind of their own are not afraid to have a mind of their own and have standards and vote independently or otherwise when fed up.

    Um. The same folks claiming to be helping Blacks are only using; preying on the ignorant, impoverished & less educated Black to further their own political careers, by keeping them dysfunctional and maintain the status quo of their plight and negative statistics. Their gov't jobs or careers thrive off of that! Wake Up!! The more that they talk, the more crap stays the same.

    Case and Point: Did not the "slave party of the segregated South" created the triple K's and J1m Crows for the freed Blacks to make their lives more hellish? Did not the liberals write the Welfare Policies of the 60s which help steered poor Blacks to what are not segregated urban areas which are now crime infested projects [aka plantation hell-holes] with failing schools? How's that helping the Blacks? -oh and let's not forget the strings attached to the welfare policies of the late 60s came with strings attached where Black women with children could not have adult males (Husbands or the father of their children; father, brother or adult son). This programmed Black men to sneak around or hide out until the coast was cleared with welfare agents popping up to snoop the house for any sent or evidence of an adult male living there.

    Shall we move on to the 80s with failing dysfunctional and often crime-infested impoverished urban schools for minorities. What about the mid 90s, when the laws & policies of Dems got rid of welfare as the poor Blacks knew it. -and to top it off, the same ones signed into the laws the mass-incarcerations of SuperPredators to create modern-day slavery for profit at the expense of Black commodities. aka...the pipeline of going from failing schools that creates lower self-esteem & a dysfunctional mentality or behavior in an oppressed environment. Perfect for helping some youth to behave their ways into jails or prisons an incubator for STDs/HIV to spread back to others in the Black community. But, I digress. Sounds like you're the one who is brainwashed and less informed. Wake Up. smh

  • Roderick2011

    Oh please.

    You're a simpleton to connect a political ideology to morality.

    Most blacks don't live in the city and as the typical black conservative you prefer to allow the 30% of blacks to define blacks as a whole rather than give a balanced view of black America.

    Most of the poorest state in the union are Republican and have been for a very very long time, but keep regurgitating the lies that you've been fed.

    I guess all of the white folks in the trailer parks who are dying from opioid overdoes in the trailer parks are virtues of morality in your biased eyes.

    I'm just now seeing this reply. I'm not low key about anything. I want to use the ladies room PERIOD. I don't want any kind of makes in there so they can go to th men's bathroom and if they are "transitioning" they can slide in unisex ? which already exist Ant Hill.......

    Well dag. I just noticed this response. You sound scared. I would use the ladies room. Why would I care if their was a third option for others. I am not going in there, just like I don't use men bathrooms either. IF you are heterosexual why would you care. Unisex bathrooms already exist by the way.
