If a man wants to wear a dress in his free time, that’s really his business. However, the rest of us should not be included in this scenario and forced to validate his delusions lest we be labeled as bigots.
For many, the recent issue concerning crossdressers in bathrooms doesn’t seem like a big deal. However, the question becomes more clear when we consider the very-real consequences of validating the delusions of those identifying as transgender.
Beyond welcoming the mentally ill to use the facilities with members of the opposite sex, the implications are enormous for the pervert crowd. We have fought to keep sex offenders and various perverts away from our children but now, out a warped sense of tolerance, we are supposed to welcome grown men to use the same facilities are our little girls?
A candidate for sheriff in Texas offered a bold warning: law or no law, any man who tries to use the facilities with his little girls “will then identify as a John Doe until he wakes up.”
Tracy Murphree, a candidate for sheriff of Denton County, Texas, has had enough with this bathroom discussion and took to Facebook to make it clear where he stands on the issue.
“This whole bathroom thing is craziness I have never seen,” he posted on Friday. “All I can say is this. If my little girl is in a public women’s restroom and a man, regardless of how he may identify goes into that bathroom. He will then identify as a John Doe until he wakes up in what ever hospital he may be taken to. Your identity does not trump my little girls safety.”
He continued: “I identify as a over protective father that loves his kids and would do anything to protect them.”
Predictably, the LGBT and pervert apologist crowds gathered to condemn the comments.

Several have condemned Murphree’s comments as allegedly condoning violence against those who identify as transgender.
“I understand how they interpreted it, I understand how they saw it, I understand their anger,” Murphree said in an interview. “For that, I apologize.”
However, Murphree refused to walk-back his position and explained,
“What you’re doing is you’re raising the odds of these predators. You’re giving them a window, you’re giving them an opportunity.”
Amber Briggle, the mother of a confused child who identifies as a boy, supports Murphree but took issue with his comments. She insisted,
“I want to take this opportunity to educate him and to educate his supporters that transgender families exist and we are just as normal as any other family out there.”
Of course, they may be a loving family, but there is nothing “normal” about raising a girl to be a boy or vice-versa.
The central issue is this: whether someone is a pervert looking to scope-out others or whether they are genuinely confused and believe themselves to be a different gender than they are, the end result is the same; we cannot have it. Society should not be condemned to deal with this discomfort to validate the delusions of the mentally ill or, worse yet, offer an exciting opportunity to perverts.
