NEW YORK, April 1, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — A transgender man said he was raped Saturday night in the “unisex” bathroom at a landmark homosexual bar in Greenwich Village.
The transgender man, who dresses like and claims to be a woman, was believed to be “heavily impaired” by alcohol and/or drugs, according to the New York Post. The suspect is a regular at the Stonewall Inn.
Security video shows the suspect following the transgender man into the single-occupancy bathroom, and the two coming out eight minutes later. The transgender man called 911 and was taken to the hospital for treatment.
Transgender activists have been fighting a culture war to eliminate natural male/female gender designations from society. Facebook now has 58 possible gender identifications, while The Living Rede lists at least 63 gender combinations.
As if in lockstep, the Obama Administration is pressuring cities and businesses to establish unisex restrooms and make intimate facilities wide open to all genders. Mayors of major cities such as New York and Seattle have obeyed Caesar, making all public facilities transgender open by executive fiat.
All this in the name of the transgender person’s “safety” and “well-being.” (And, of course, the men’s acceptance as women, and vice versa.)
And yet, creating “unisex” bathrooms and transgender-open showers and locker rooms welcoming the opposite sex has not resulted in greater safety for anyone. Canada’s transgender-affirming laws can increase incidents of women being attacked by men in restrooms. Concerned Women for America’s Donna Miller, in researching Canada’s transgender laws, found they actually endanger women, not protect them. And in the United States, women have been killed in bathroom attacks.
It is ironic, then, that when liberals are fighting for transgender men not only to be affirmed as “women” in every sense (including legally, and biologically), including fighting for those men to have the “right” to use women's toilets and showers for their safety, that a “woman” is raped in what is supposed to be a safer facility.
Here we have the Stonewall Inn, the recognized and honored pinnacle of the gay/liberal agenda, the holy grail of homosexuality, transvestitism, and transgenderism, following the liberal line with unisex bathrooms, and a “woman” is attacked.
The moral of the story is that changing the signs of your bathroom from “men’s” and “women’s” to “unisex” does not protect anybody.
“The bottom line here is that men should never be allowed to enter women's restrooms,” Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, told LifeSiteNews. “The LGBT Lobby is now trying to tug at our heartstrings regarding men supposedly being victimized just because they want to go to the bathroom.”
“But the real victims of the radical pro-transgender agenda are women and girls, who deserve to feel safe and comfortable in the private spaces of female restrooms and locker rooms,” the moral leader said.
“Once again we face the prospect of our entire society being turned upside down to appease the unnatural demands of less than one percent of the population,” LaBarbera concluded. “Let us hope that reason and common sense prevail, and our lawmakers do not capitulate to activists who would put our wives and daughters and grandmothers at risk to achieve a distorted vision of 'equality' based on gender confusion.”
The Stonewall Inn is considered the birthplace of the modern gay movement. Run by the New York Mafia without a liquor license, a major riot began there on June 28, 1969, after plainclothes New York police officers raided the bar on morals charges.
Homosexual men, many dressed as women, come to the bar that night after hearing of the raid and began pelting police with bottles, slashing police car tires, and attempting to overturn cars. The homosexuals were joined by the Black Panthers, and anti-Vietnam war protesters. They broke windows and attempted to set the Inn and police ablaze.
Sporadic violence continued for days. As a result, the “Gay Liberation Front” was formed. On the first anniversary of the Stonewall riots, June 28, 1970, the first ever “Gay Pride” public parade was organized.
In his second inaugural address, President Barack Obama honored the Stonewall riots, saying its aims are an integral part of American “freedom.”
“It’s a very disturbing incident taking place in a site that’s very important historically, where something good happened,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said. “To see a violent incident like this is very troubling.”
Two New York politicians are working to designate the Stonewall Inn as the first national park honoring LGBTQ history.
