Perverts in ladies Lavatories

I sent the message below yesterday and it has been brought to my attention. What is to stop evil perverts from pretending that they are transgender and then invade the ladies toilets and violate women and children?

The greedy bloody idiots sucking up to the poofter and Lesbian votes have placed the security and even the lives of ladies and children at the mercy of these predators.

If a lady politician enters a ladies toilet and is raped maybe then we will some action against such stupid laws.

Transgender students force lavatory change

The ladies' lavatory is now simply labelled "toilet" while the mens' has become "toilets with urinals".

The student union decided to change the signs during a meeting of its executive in the summer following a number of complaints from transgender students.

Women's officer Jennie Killip refused to say how many people had complained, and there are no figures for how many transgender people there are among the university's 35,000 population.

She said: "If you were born female, still presently quite feminine, but defined as a man you should be able to go into the men's toilets.

"You don't necessarily have to have had gender reassignment surgery, but you could just define yourself as a man, feel very masculine in yourself, feel that in fact being a woman is not who you are.

"Transgender people can face violence and abuse when they go into toilets and we wanted to provide a place where they can feel comfortable.

"I have had complaints from people who said we didn't have any facilities for them."

But the switch has caused consternation among many of the students returning from their summer break.

Second-year student Jane McConnell, 19, a news editor on the Student Direct student newspaper, said: "While these signs might be appropriate for people with different sexualities, I also think that many people from different religious and ethnic groups are going to feel uncomfortable using these facilities.

"Even though they're just two signs, at the end of the day, toilets should be for women and for men specifically, not for both."

Another student said: "This is ridiculous. It is just too much political correctness."
