I think it's a part of life for generations to continue to try and compare what it was like "Back then..."   AND what it's like NOW

That's common knowledge in my mind, that someone growing up in the 50s, 60s, or even the 70s is having a hard time adjusting and accepting some lifestyles of other people.

A delicate topic of conversation

My belief is that anybody should be allowed to express themselves and be free with their body and gender - WITHIN reason.

House Bill 1522 - You talk about controversy, this one is it

What are your thoughts?

Think about both sides of this situation - how would you like your young daughter, vulnerable in an open restroom, when a young person who has male gender parts walks in? Again I find it extremely hard to accept
