"No one ever thinks these things though. And everyone is so quick to judge if one has a different point of view."

This much irony should be illegal.

Re: “Avoiding the transgender mistakes of the Queen City

Lots of soft bigotry in this article and comment section. Where are the non bigotted residents of North Carolina? Do such people exist?

The law was political gimmick that has hurt many trans people around America. Trans people in North Carolina are still afraid when in public.

The nation now knows that North Carolina is a bigot.

Re: “Avoiding the transgender mistakes of the Queen City

There has to be common sense and all of this has gotten out of hand. We are talking about less than 1% of the population. Yes, it happens that a boy feels trapped in a girls body or a girl feels trapped in a boys body. It does happen. But do the 99% of the rest of the population have to conform to the 1%? I am sure that transgenders ( when I was growing up we called them , transsexuals) used the ladies room. A bit harder for a female trying to be a man. I guess, he uses a stall.

It's not about the bathroom. That's easy. It's The locker room and if there are showers and the kids are under 18. It's hard enough for heterosexuals going through puberty. Now they have to see a girl with a penis? Or a boy, with a vagina? And starting to grow breasts? Granted, they are starting to give hormones to transgender kids at 11 now. And that is a whole other controversy. But still, they hv the genitals. It's hard on both parties. Once they are over 18, it's a different story. There is a transsexual man on Harvards men's swimming team. Seems the guys r fine with it. She basically looks like a guy. Is a guy.
But for young kids, it's a different story.

No one ever thinks these things though. And everyone is so quick to judge if one has a different point of view.

An excellent article about a brilliant young activist. Charleston is privileged (no pun intended) to have Muhiyidin d'Baha working to make our community a more just place for all of us.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Influencer by Birth

I didn't watch the show last season, only read your recaps. I'm glad I can continue this as I was worried I'd have to actually watch it this season.

Re: “An organizer of the Charleston Women's March describes her first foray into large-scale demonstrations

It was a well run and well attended event. The weather was iffy but 3,000 or so attended. Having people march from various locals throughout the city was a stroke of genius. Court and crew are to be commended for their efforts.

You had me laughing out loud. Erudite references even funnier in this context.
More, please!

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Influencer by Birth

Great commentary and quite witty. I'm so glad that you too noticed that the cat was sitting on the counter where food is prepared, gross. I notice silly little things like that and it drives me crazy. I wanted to rush in with a bottle of bleach and disinfect everything. I digress so back to the show. I predict that Kathryn will float in (on her broom) and sweep Shep away from his date. Shep will dump Chelsea like yesterday's news because he is for some odd reason obsessed with Kathryn.

Re: “Avoiding the transgender mistakes of the Queen City

Fairly informative and practical article, but "choose their gender"? No, it's not a choice, it's who they ARE. A boy "trapped" in a girls body or vice versa and is completely unrelated to sexuality, which is independent of anyone's gender (innate or perceived). And no one goes to the YMCA to troll for sex in the showers, though public accessible showers should all have private stalls and not be communal. Has anyone heard a word about trans-gendered (not cross-dressers as Oklahoma Speaker, Charles McCall and a LOT of the uninformed, think they are, apparently) trolling bathrooms? No, unlike some our nation's congressmen, who have been caught red - er - handed (or footed)!

Re: “Avoiding the transgender mistakes of the Queen City

Did you know that 10% of all college women will be raped? Or that 20% will suffer from persistent unwanted sexual advances? Or that in 2015 there were 26,000 reported rapes in the US armed forces. 14,000 of these were men raping men? The problem seems to be with hetero males. So lets ban them from all public facilities. Makes as much sense as your saying males will pretend to be trans to enter a woman's restroom. Since 80-90% of child victims know their abuser the problem is not in restrooms. It is in the home, sports facility, pulpit (google clergy sexual abuse). But let's ignore all this and instead focus on a non-existent problem. One created to keep us in the closet.

Great commentary! I think I would rather have you produce the storylines on the show. You have hit it ( and with my flavor of wit) like a nail on it's head. -Yo
