[ - ] I feel that transgendered people shouldn't be discriminated against and should be treated as the gender they identify with. When it comes to public restrooms where there are stalls, I don't see a problem. But with something like public showers at town pools for instance. I don't want to offend anyone and I want to get to a place where it's not a problem for me but I can't get past not wanting my dd seeing a woman with a penis where she's changing or something. For people who have gotten to a place of understanding about this, can you please explain it to me? I'd like to not be ignorant on this issue and I'm trying to get there. 21 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

No, I would not shower there, either. I don't live so far from my gym that I can't just go home.

OP: I can but even if you tell kids not to look they will especially if it's something different. If this was a grown man everyone would say of course a girl shouldn't be seeing his penis. But because it's a woman it's okay? That's the part I have trouble with. [ Reply | More ]

It freaked my dd out beginning of summer when we were in changing room at pool (not public, requires membership) and a boy maybe 6 or 7 was running around nude.

OP: fwiw, I know a girl seeing a penis on a woman isn't the most horrible thing in the world and it could lead to a conversation of transgendered people and understanding. It's just seething I understand why people aren't comfortable with and I hate feeling the same way about something as Michelle Duggar (she recently came out against anti-discrimation laws against transgendered people) so I wanted to figure out how to get past it.

[ - ] I am the world's biggest moron who paid a contractor most of the price in cash up front (don't as) and so I deserve what happened, unfortunately I can't afford it, the work was awful and has to be redone and now I learn there are more serious errors in what he did. He does have insurance but I understand insurance doesn't cover defects in work like this. So I will sue him in small claims and register a complaint but basically I'm SOL right? He insists he has no money so suing him won't help--I believe he probably has no cash and I'm not willing to go to the lengths of them seizing his truck or tools or any liens like that. 10 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
