Over at NC Capitol Connection, Mark Shiver and his associates are exposing one myth in the current bathroom debate: that male predators never strike in restrooms, locker rooms and changing rooms. Mark’s story begins:
A male predator lurking in a restroom or shower? The Left says that is a preposterous idea. For one Triangle family and their 12-year old daughter, however, it’s all too real.
Such crimes occur all over the nation. Yet, the drive to allow any man who claims he identifies as female into women’s restrooms and changing rooms threatens to erode protections against crimes and invasion of privacy.
On Jan. 10, a Wake County family went to the Orange County Sportsplex in Hillsborough to watch a swim meet their daughter was competing in. The family has shared with NC Capitol Connection what happened there.
After the competition, the girl went into the shower area to rinse off, while her father waited outside. She could see no one else in the locker room. When she was in the shower, suddenly she was grabbed from behind by a man who pushed her to the floor and started to take off her swimsuit.
The sad fact is that transgenders are not threats — but male predators are. They are willing to take advantage of loopholes. And misguided laws and policies provide loopholes that weaken the safeguards of privacy and safety we all expect in public area where we are vulnerable.
