PZ’s post today about Jessica Williams decent take-down of the infamous bathroom bills got me thinking. Why are we so focused on the dangers of transgender individuals using the bathroom of their choice? Why do we care so much about freaking bathrooms? Why not bedrooms? Daycare centers? Schools. Hell, if the fear was real, we should be firing all teachers from all school everywhere.
But the fear is a lie. The reasoning is bullshit. The rhetoric is just that – rhetoric. There is no data to back up the idea that a transgender, specifically, has ever gone into a bathroom and solicited a child – primarily based on their status as a trangender – let alone at all.
There are, though, stories of perverts who do this. But forget fake, fearmongering, bathroom stories. Let’s talk about the real sexual deviance problem in ‘Murica.

You know. The real perverts. The ones who really abuse children and anyone they can abuse without getting caught.
