Walgreen’s Bathroom Policy

Walgreen’s corporate policy as of 21 Nov. 2017, posted on the ACLU website. Link to policy WAG.POL.ERS-208.

“All individuals have a right to use restroom facilities that correspond to the individual’s gender identity, regardless of the individual’s sex assigned at birth.”

History of Walgreens

Charles R. Walgreen, Sr. established his first store in Illinois in 1901. Today, there are 8,100 stores across the continental United States and in Puerto Rico.

My Personal Experience with Walgreens

As a young child, the Walgreen’s store feature that drew me in was the soda fountain. Do you know the Walgreen coporation invented the malted milkshake?

Mom would take us to visit Aunt Lucille in New Orleans. As early as age 5, my younger sister Ginger and I, on our own, would hop aboard a New Orleans city bus for a ride down to Canal Street to visit the local Walgreens for a Cherry Phosphate. Mom wasn’t the least worried about us doing this and nothing untoward ever happened.

Political Correctness in Action

The ACLU of California pressured Walgreen’s to adopt this LGBTQ policy that welcomes men into women’s restrooms.

Transgenderism is a mental disorder. The World Health Organization (WHO) and professional psychiatry long recognized this to be so. However, political pressure from the ACLU and other leftist political organizations associated with the Democrat Party compelled a redefinition of the disorder. This new politically-correct position is said to destigmatize the mental condition in order “to reduce barriers to care”. If there is no disorder, why is there a need for psychiatric care?

In Summary

Professional psychiatrists will now say transgenderism isn’t a mental problem but still call it such for billing purposes. The redefinition will go into effect in May 2018.

It is astonishing that professional psychiatrists deem transgenderism not a mental illness while the suicide attempt rate is ten times the national rate of the rest of the population. Read more about this below.

Action

First and foremost, if you are a disciple of Jesus Christ, you are obligatged to intercede for transgender victims. I have to say it’s not a mental disorder. It’s a spiritual disorder.

The prevalence of suicide attempts among respondents to the National Transgender Discrimination Survey (NTDS), conducted by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and National Center for Transgender Equality, is 41 percent, which vastly exceeds the 4.6 percent of the overall U.S. population who report a lifetime suicide attempt, and is also higher than the 10-20 percent of lesbian, gay and bisexual adults who report ever attempting suicide. – The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention

The risk to vulnerable women and children is probably minimal, with respect to transgender people. The real danger will be from sexual predators who now have a license to prey upon easy targets.

Contact your local Walgreen’s store manager to express your concern over the transgender policy.

ACLU continues its assault on commonsense legislation crafted to protect vulnerable women and children

In an email today, the ACLU says, “North Carolina should truly repeal its unjust HB2 law that permits discrimination against LGBT people — and we’re calling on the NCAA to refuse to allow championship games to take place in NC until that happens.”

What’s wrong with the above ACLU complaint? Let’s do a little reality check.

ACLU and the LGBTQ-Whatever Confusion

While the left’s popular euphemism for homosexuality is the acronym LGBTQ, homosexuality remains a same-sex attraction.

Here’s the fun part. Are you ready, ACLU?

Men who are afflicted with same-sex attraction have no interest in the invasion of women’s restrooms, dressing rooms, and gymnasium showers. Homosexual men prefer men. Is this too deep for you? I’ll pull back and elaborate somewhat.

Women with same-sex attraction are not interested in men. Like homosexual men, they have no interest in the invasion of men’s restrooms, dressing rooms, and gymnasium showers. Does this help?

The North Carolina HB2, like a similar bill before the Texas Legislature, was crafted to protect vulnerable women and children from sexual predators, guys who wish to walk into women’s restrooms, dressing rooms, and gymnasium showers with impunity. These heterosexual males are perverts and creeps who are generally unwelcome in the aforesaid facilities reserved for women and young children.

I know, I know. I’ve written some facts about life that challenge your baseless complaints, but you will eventually gain understanding (aka common sense) if you re-read the above several times, clicking your heels together while repeatedly saying, “I’m not in the women’s restroom. I’m not in the women’s restroom. I’m not in the women’s restroom.”

The ACLU’s strategy: Confusing until you consider these facts

Fact no. 1: The ACLU stridently opposes bills in the Texas Legislature crafted to protect stand up for religious freedomvulnerable Texas children. Specifically HB 3859 and SB6; the first to prevent homosexuals from either fostering or adopting children in the care of the State, the second to protect vulnerable women and children from sexual predators in restrooms, locker rooms, and dressing rooms.

Fact no. 2: In the worldview of Muslims, homosexuality is as unacceptable as it is in the worldview of Christians. References: Qur’an 4:15, 4:16

Fact no. 3: The national political director of the ACLU is a devout Muslim, Faiz Shakir.

Fact no. 4: While the ACLU says it supports religious freedom, this support only goes to Muslims and atheists – Christianity is a target, not a client.

Contrast the outrageous claims of Barack Obama, who likens radical Islam to Christianity, with Fox News panelists and American Christian leaders.

Islamic reality in Pakistan, Iraq, Egypt, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Afghanistan where Muslims mercilessly murder and persecute Christians. The above video clarifies untruths (aka lies) voiced by Islamists in this country.

If Islamists activists prevail in their all-out assault on Christianity, using LGBTQ activists, the ACLU, and atheists in their cause, even this blog will be criminalized.

The political strategy of the ACLU isn’t at all confusing when you have all the facts.

‎Rockwall‬ ‪‎BathroomOrdinance‬: Why are we having this conversation?

bathroom ordinance and common sense.png

Rockwall Mayor Jim Pruitt says, “we have been thrust in a position of discussing this because several businesses and governmental entities have decided to create policies encouraging men unfettered access to women’s restrooms and changing rooms, and vice versa. Because of these policies, I, as mayor of Rockwall, Texas, proposed a new ordinance that would limit a person’s access to a bathroom that didn’t match his or her biological sex.”

The day following the city council meeting where none of our council members offered a second to open public discussion of the proposed ordinance, a Target store in Frisco became the scene of a man photographing a girl in a dressing room. The girl identified his face that was captured on security cameras.

More from CBS Local: Forney woman shocked to find man using Ross women’s dressing room – Ross cares only for the so-called ‘transgender’ male, she says. 

Libertarian-leaning members of the community argue the ordinance imposed too much government control of businesses. Is this the case? Let’s consider the fundamental role of all government, the principle found in the Declaration of Independence:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”

Yes, the fundamental role of all government is to secure the rights of the people governed, not to hold down the costs of conducting a private business.

As our third president and the author of the above-mentioned Declaration of Independence Thomas Jefferson stated: “A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another…”

Liberty flourishes most when we the people are free to exercise our pursuits without restraint, so long as we do no harm to others.
The proposed ordinance was intended to serve this purpose by protecting vulnerable women and children.

Other than the local Target store, another business to remember is the local Hilton hotel. The hotel manager publicly opposed the ordinance.
