The reason statistically there is more “white-on-white crime”, (if that is indeed true) is because blacks make up approximately 15% of the population. This is an example of how you can skew statistics. The question should be, “What percentage of blacks kill other blacks?” versus “What percentage of whites kill other whites”?

“…True” transgenderism is a form of mental illness…”
Transgenderism as you call it, is not a form of mental illness. It is a chromosomal abnormality that happens before birth.
Being intolerant, however, IS a form of mental illness.

“Perves” will always try to molest people. You are assuming that transgendered people are perverts.

That is an ignorant remark.

“…..Tapper argued that these “bathroom bills” only secure the rights of transgender people who “identify as female,” not heterosexual men or child predators.
“But the law doesn’t specify transgender,” Cruz noted. “It’s just whatever you feel like at the given moment.”
Who’s right? Does the law only apply to transgendered people, as Tapper says, or does the law apply to all men wanting to use the ladies room, as Cruz says? I like Cruz’ stances on the economy, on the Constitution, on pro-life issues, but he has it wrong here. It is clear that he sees transgendered people as people who just one day, without any thought, chose to dress as a man with the intent of molesting little girls. I see that most of the comments here disagree with me. One thing I always admired about conservatives is our ability to think deeply, rationally, and intelligently about a subject. Most conservatives are college-educated. But I am shocked at the knee-jerk reaction to this issue. If you watched Caitlyn’s Jenners’ tv show, you would see that she, as well as her other transgendered female friends are good people, have been using the ladies room for years (after their transition), and would be horrified if they were forced to use the urinals in a men’s room.
Am I missing something here? What happened the thinking minds that used to be the hallmark of a conservative?
Yes you are missing something. Your characterization of Cruz' thoughts is imagined. I might add, no one has 'fully transitioned' if they have not had the lopoffadicktomy. They're just guys with issues in heels and lipstick.
The problem is a transgender person can be straight. I just don't feel comfortable using a stall with a man in the next standing up. Some stalls are poorly maintained and have big gaps, this could be a straight man next to me and today he is feeling more feminine than usual so he's not dressed in a manner that would allow him discreet use of a men's room.

Your idea of carrying an ID, although meant as sarcasm, is not a bad idea. Transgendered people regularly see their doctor for their prescribed hormones, etc.,They could carry a doctors note of some kind in their wallet identifying them as being under that doctor’s care. But let’s stop and step back for a moment. Transgendered people have as many good people among their population as does the rest of the population. They are just people. God made them with a defect in their brain pre-natally that causes them to identify as the opposite gender. Some people are deaf, or have bad eyesight, or a skeletal deformity, all of which are corrected through medical intervention. God made them all. Transgendered people are simply attempting, through medical intervention, to effect the same change that others with defects have done. Do you REALLY thing transgendered people go through the trouble of physically changing their bodies through hormones and surgery just so they can molest people?? Do you REALLY think that a transgendered woman who has yet to have gender reassignment surgery is going to go in the men’s room, life up her dress and publicly use the urinal? NO! These people have been around us for decades, using the ladies room, in the stalls, and no one has known the difference.
Perverts are a whole other class of people. They, too, have been around us for decades. If they attempt to molest others, they get arrested. Nothing has changed there. Wake up! Think logically.

Just follow whatever Cesar Milan suggests. I’ve watched almost all of his shows, and that man is right on! What he says makes sense and WORKS!

A hermaphrodite is not mentally ill, only physically different. Still a person. Similar conversations were happening among bigots in the 1960′s before the Republicans created and passed the Civil Rights Act. Wake up people!

Maybe I missed it, but how far along WAS she that she knew the sex of her unborn child? I think it is difficult to determine before four or five months.
"son" refers to the one she gave birth to. In this article it doesn't say she knew the gender of her second child. I didn't read her full piece, nor do I intend to give her clicks.

“….In my case, I knew that an abortion was the only responsible decision…..”
The only ‘responsible’ decision was to inconvenience yourself for 7 more months and then give that baby up for adoption. F’ing idiot.
Birth control before hand might have been the responsible thing. With a son already I would think she had a pretty good idea where babies come from.
Hold it right there bucko.Women aren't incubators who are forced to have children in order to measure up to your own personal version of being responsible.Oh and for the record if I had my way abortion wouldn't be necessary as no one would ever have children again.I am sick to death of the state thinking they are the childrens parents.Good for her having an abortion.The state just lost another soul it could end up using and abusing for its never ending money stream.Stinking vultures

Tinkertoi, I am merely pointing out that the sect of Catholicism is where Easter was sanctioned as a holiday. It has no Christian roots (Christian meaning that Jesus implemented it)……”
As a Catholic, may I point out that yes, you ARE being pompous when you tell us that our faith has no Christian roots. Catholicism IS the root from which all other Christian religions grew. If you are brave enough, read and consider the following: http://www.catholic.com/documents/pillar-of-fire-pillar-of-truth

She’s being paid a SIX FIGURE SALARY by taxpayers to show this trash? Speaking as a TRUE teacher, I’d bet her salary that those same students could not tell you who Nathan Hale or Patrick Henry are; nor know the difference between an adjective and a noun. This is exactly why I hate the NEA. They support garbage like this.
She was showing part of what is happening in the world today. At least she didn't show children being crucified or raped etc. That is also happening in the muslim countries. Obama and Hillary want to bring that here. Donald is not wishy-washy about that. He will not allow it to happen.

I’m not sure he should enter it into a scholarship competition. Our mostly leftist colleges will hate it and it could work against him. Apply to conservative colleges, Jacob.

l never liked it when principals would promise to do some sort of humiliating thing if their students read a certain number of books. Just teach them right in the first grade and you will have a school-ful of competent readers. Most students do not read on their own today because reading is a burdensome chore resulting from the ineffective reading methods still used in our schools today. To humiliate yourself before children gives the message that there are times when disrespect toward those in authority is acceptable. It is NEVER acceptable.
