Lesbian Lawmaker Says Churches, Schools Threat to Children, Not Transgenders in Restrooms

Todd-compressedMONTGOMERY, Al. — A lesbian lawmaker in Alabama suggested this week that the real safety threat for children is not men who identify as female using women’s restrooms, but faith leaders in churches and teachers in schools.

“Just read [the news] every morning and look at the child predators in our state. They are not transgender people. In fact, more and more are teachers, coaches and faith leaders,” wrote Patricia Todd, D-Birmingham, in an op-ed for Al.com on Wednesday. “So if you really want to protect your children from child predators, don’t take them to school, public parks, church or allow them to play sports or use the internet.”

Todd has served in the Alabama House of Representatives since 2006. Her latest re-election was in 2014, when she defeated two Democratic opponents. She was not challenged by a Republican candidate.

Todd currently serves as the state director of the Alabama chapter of the Human Rights Campaign, an organization co-founded by Terrance Bean, who was arrested in 2014 and spent a year dealing with sodomy charges stemming from an investigation that involved an alleged sexual encounter with a 15-year-old boy. The charges were dropped after prosecution stated that the teen was unwilling to testify.

“The majority of child sexual assault occurs in locations where children gather, school, church, parks, etc.,” Todd wrote in her op-ed in discussing her thoughts regarding concerns over allowing men who identify as women in women’s restrooms.

“Instead of focusing on the facts of where sexual assault occur and who perpetrates these attacks, the right made up a problem that doesn’t actually exist according to expert studies,” she said. “The truth is that the only recorded incidents of violence in the bathrooms has been when opponents to transgender rights initiate it.”

Todd noted that mothers usually enter the restroom with their children, and asserted that some mothers bring their sons into the women’s restroom.

“Most caring parents accompany their children to public bathrooms. Some mothers bring their young male children to use the women’s bathroom. Should that be legal? Will that become illegal?” she asked.

Some responded positively to Todd’s writings, while others expressed their disagreement.

“This is a liberal’s idea of things: We already have lots of child molesters, so lets open up the women’s restrooms, locker rooms and showers to them as long as they ‘identify’ as a woman,” one commenter wrote.

“No one is saying transgenders will molest a child in the bathroom. We’re saying it gives child predator pervs a great excuse to go into the opposite sex bathroom and indecently expose themselves to those children when there is an opportunity, and then to deny it occurred intentionally,” another said.

“The majority of child sexual assault occurs in locations where children gather, school, church, parks, etc. —and now will be restrooms,” a third opined.

    “So if you really want to protect your children from child predators, don’t take them to school, public parks, church or allow them to play sports or use the internet.”

    Well atleast she didn’t single out Church. Molestation can happen anywhere by anyone who is inclined to the sin.

  • Ronald Carter

    “Just read [the news] every morning and look at the child predators in
    our state. They are not transgender people. In fact, more and more are
    teachers, coaches and faith leaders.”

    There’s not a single reason in the world to take offense with this statement. She’s absolutely correct.

    • TheBottomline4This

      Do you think it’s impossible for a trans to molest?

      • Ronald Carter

        No. What’s your point?

        • TheBottomline4This

          Just checkin.

          • Slidellman4life

            The phrase, “ignorant or a liar” comes to mind, no?

          • Ronald Carter

            No, since it’s a grammatical mess and because she’s not lying.

          • TheBottomline4This

            You claim she’s not lying. Where’s your proof she’s not lying?
            Do you know her heart or is just the fact she’s gay proof enough for you?

          • Ronald Carter

            Because I have seen the stats.

          • TheBottomline4This

            Not proof.

          • Ronald Carter

            That’s your problem.

          • Slidellman4life

            Dude, you and Amos need to stop talking to Ronald. I have engaged him before, and he has shown himself to be a pathological liar. You can’t win with him, because proven facts mean nothing to him whatsoever.

          • Ronald Carter

            So when you can’t prove anything you say, that makes me a pathological liar? It’s true what they say about arguing with fundamentalists, it’s like playing chess with a pigeon. They fly around knocking all the pieces down, defecate on the board, then fly home to their nest to declare victory.

          • Amos Moses

            He is self-contradictory ………. it needs to be pointed out ……. and his outrageous statements need to be challenged …….

          • ShemSilber

            That is good counsel you give here. It is indeed futile talking to a closed mind. On the other hand, I have answered some in order to give others a Scriptural point of view to counter the bilge that some of the scoffers come up with. But to persuade the closed mind takes a miracle, it takes intervention from the Master Yahushua (Lord Jesus) Himself. I know that’s what it took to open my mind to some really wonderful light, and there’s more light to come, because we never know it all, in Yahushua’s Name, omein.

          • Amos Moses

            Must have missed some of them then …………..

          • Ronald Carter

            I would say all of them.

    • Amos Moses

      Do you think it is impossible for a person to LIE about being a tranny…………………

      • Ronald Carter

        No of course not, but what’s your point? There are still more faith leaders that molest than transgender. Her statement is absolutely factual.

        • Amos Moses

          Its not about trannys ………….. when you going to get it ……. “faith leaders” is a deflection ……….. and of course ……….. no one would ever lie ……..

          • Ronald Carter

            Given the sheer number of church/faith leaders out there compared to thenumber of transgendered people, of COURSE there are going to be more church/faith leaders who molest. And we still don’t have a single example of a transgendered person who DID molest. What is it I am supposedly not “getting”, Amos?

          • Amos Moses

            How many was that again ……… percentage wise …………. and does it differ from the population in general or is it greater or smaller ………….. and you really seem to be lacking any facts ………. just unsubstantiated opinion …………. and again, IT AINT ABOUT TRANNYS …

          • Ronald Carter

            Oh what on EARTH, there’s the word “transgendered” right in the headline, Amos, what IS it about then??

          • Amos Moses

            This ……………… gutting free speech ………… and trannys are being used …….. by people like you …………….

            Newspeak………..

            President Barack Obama’s aggressive new federal transgender rules require 55 million K-12 kids and teachers to speak in a new government-approved dialect, to ignore what science says about sex, and to comply with privacy-violating orders whenever even one teen in their school claims to have a “gender identity” problem.

            Obama described the new federal agency directive and instructions, which were announced May 9, as “here’s how there are schools that have been wrestling with this problem, and have, we think, done a good job in accommodating them in a way that is good for everybody.”

            So no right to privacy………… no right to religion …….. and no right to speak FREELY …….. government control of speech …… thanks for your part in their effort ……..

          • Ronald Carter

            More paranoid schizophrenia, Amos. Learn to type in sentences not utterly polluted with ellipses.

          • Amos Moses

            More cognitive dissonance ……….. good one …………

          • Ronald Carter

            Well, you are the king of cognitive dissonance, aren’t you? Can’t even string a coherent sentence together. Just random scattershot ideas connected with strings of dots. No, your posts are of little consequence.

          • Amos Moses

            And yet you feel compelled…………. to respond ……….. and make a mockery ………. of your own statements ………………. GOOD ONE …………….

          • Ronald Carter

            I’m not making a mockery of my own statements. I’m making a mockery of yours.

          • Amos Moses

            So more Cognitive Dissonance …………

            In psychology, cognitive dissonance is the mental stress or discomfort experienced by an individual who holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values at the same time, performs an action that is contradictory to one or more beliefs, ideas, or values, or is confronted by new information that conflicts with existing beliefs, ideas, or values.

            So, do you use duct tape to keep your skull from exploding with so much contradictory information inside?…………………… Inquiring minds want to know …… I mean ……….. really ….. if i had that going on …….. i would probably have to find the top of my skull in the next county …….. EVERY MORNING …………..

          • Ronald Carter

            I don’t even know where to start trying to connect the bizarre leaps of logic you’re trying to pass off here. So this is about free speech and somehow the transgendered are being used as pawns? And privacy too? Government control? And you say with a straight face that you are NOT a conspiracy theorist? Sir, I ask with all respect, what on earth are you talking about?

          • Amos Moses

            Oh, i believe in conspiracy ………. the bible says it is exists and who is involved ………… and so does THE LAW ……………. so again we are left with your cognitive dissonance …….

            FYI, the left hand does not need to know what the right hand is doing for a conspiracy to exist …….. BY THE LAW …………………

            In psychology, cognitive dissonance is the mental stress or discomfort experienced by an individual who holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values at the same time, performs an action that is contradictory to one or more beliefs, ideas, or values, or is confronted by new information that conflicts with existing beliefs, ideas, or values.

          • Amos Moses

            It is always about control …………….

          • Ronald Carter

            Don’t you realize when the article has the word “transgenders” right in its TITLE how you sound when you try to say with a straight face that it isn’t about transgenders?

            Cognitive dissonance indeed.

            “There are still more faith leaders that molest than transgender. ”

            Hmmmmmm ………. lets go to the video tape ………. i mean links ……

            Transwomen & Sexualized Violence

            There are numerous other reported incidents (assaults on women and children, indecent exposure, public masturbation, covert photography etc.) by disordered “transgender” men (outofmypantiesnow. Remove this space. wordpress. Remove this space. com/2013/10/28/when-is-90-not-substantially-all/); there are over 250 media reported stories at this link alone.

            From that link:

            88% of the transgender population, those people who are protected by gender identity and gender expression laws, are, as reported by their own advocacy organizations, males with a psychosexual disorder. (1)

            Many men with psychosexual disorders practice their fetish in the privacy of their own homes. But as many as 13,946,348 of them in the US, at the time of this writing, will be free to practice their fetish in public, in front of your children, in women’s locker rooms, in the girls bathroom at school. (2) This will be enabled by current and pending transgender legislation throughout the US. (3).

            Transgender fetish is the largest sexual disorder reported in convicted sex offenders.(4) Almost 100% of convicted sex offenders have a documented history of transvestism, crossdressing, free-dressing, Autogynephilia, transsexualism – in other words: TRANSGENDER.

            60% of convicted sex offenders have transgender fetish as their primary paraphillia (a parapillia is a psychological sex disorder). Of the remaining fetishists, such as pedophiles, rapists, etc., 60% of those sex offenders have transgender fetish as their secondary parapillia, in addition to their primary disorder. Finally, 40% of convicted sex offenders have transgender fetish as their tertiary (3rd) fetish among multiple disorders.

            Transgender sex disorders are the leading indicator of criminal sexual behavior.

          • Gal 5:22-23

            Why cite a hate site that deliberately confuses transvestitism with transgender among many other falsehoods and deceits?

          • Amos Moses

            The “hate site” has NEWS STORY LINKS ………….. so it has NEWS …. sorry if that is NEWS to you ……………. NEWS is not hate ……… it is NEWS ………………………… and it is only false if you do not want to hear the TRUTH ………

          • Gal 5:22-23

            Yes it does, dozens of links to stories that don’t involve transgendered people at all.

            Sure they are ……….. as they “SELF IDENTIFY” as such ………………….. so WRONG ……….

            So is it ok for two seven or eight year olds to have sex with one another ……

            You are exactly right, Brother Amos, about right always being in the minority. Such as Methusaleh and Noah, warning the people for 120 years of the coming Flood, while most of the laughed them to scorn. Then Methusaleh, whose name means, “When he dies, it will come,” and the Flood came and took all the scoffers away.

            May our Master Yahushua (Lord Jesus) guide us through these Dark Ages and into His Kingdom, omein.

          • Ronald Carter

            I can’t believe three people would thumb you up for something so nonsensical. People in the majority should be assumed wrong? The majority of people are not murderers. The majority of people are not thieves. The majority of people are not prostitutes. Want to re-examine that statement and try again?

          • Amos Moses

            Common Sense…………

            We had explosives EXPERTS that said the atomic bomb would never work and that it was just a big waste of money.

            It was proven that if you traveled faster than 17 miles per hour on a train that the air pressure would kill you.

            The Navy once said that an airplane could never sink a ship. (don’t guess the Japanese listened to him!) People, military officers, called Col. Billy Mitchell crazy for that idea and they had him court martialed when Mitchell issued a statement accusing senior leaders in the Army and Navy of incompetence and “almost treasonable administration of the national defense.” for believing that it could not be done.

            Then there was the story that a screw drive could never propel a ship at sea, that paddle wheels were the only feasible means. – more “common sense”!

            So please tell me about your “Common Sense” …………..

      “The majority of child sexual assault occurs in locations where children
      gather, school, church, parks, etc. — and now will be restrooms,” a
      third optioned. Why because now the predators have an open door where no one dare to challenge them for fear of being sued…so we now have opened the door to predators and given them insurance. I just feel it is a poorly thought out law only taking one group of people into consideration. Just so you know…I was repeated victimized by predators (no they were not transgender) But it took literally decades of therapy to deal with the fallout to the victimization. All I’m personally asking is that they consider my right to privacy and safety. Because of this movement I currently have stopped using facilities that have an open door policy. Now I feel discriminated against and victimized by the system.

      • Gal 5:22-23

        And your fears are unfounded, you have had and always will have a right to bring anyone of any sex or gender identity to the attention of authorities that lingers, leers, or acts in appropriately in a restroom or locker room. But allowing a transgender person to use the restroom of their gender is for their safety and comfort.

        No one said that being a Christian was going to be easy, loving people unconditionally always stretches boundaries that those of this world are comfortable with – the disciples and their reactions to Christ’s teachings are ample examples of that.

        A MtoF transgender person is both safest and most comfortable in the woman’s restroom – what Christian would deny them these things when they can be granted at no risk to themselves?

      • Ronald Carter

        If a predator wants to assault someone, they will do it regardless of what gender a door is labelled with. Christian News Network posted a story illustrating this very point just a couple of days ago. A man who was not a transgender walked into a woman’s restroom and choked an 8-year old girl. He wasn’t taking advantage of any loophole in any law, he didn’t CARE about the law, as most lawbreakers don’t. I am sorry for your victimization but you should not turn transgendered people into victims of baseless fear either.

        • susan sennett

          Baseless Fear???

          Ronald, I’ve done a lot of home work on predators…I studied for years trying to figure out why I was frequently victimized. I spoke with doctors and psychologist did a lot of reading and yes it is true that predators will take the risk r=if they really was to victimize however… they love an open door. That is why churches, schools etc. who serve children are required to have all staff and volunteers figure printed and background checks. So it is getting more difficult to reach children because the door are being guarded. I knew some predators and they themselves admitted that they love open door policies. How much experience do you have with sexual predators?

          All I’m asking is to be assured of my safety. I would welcome and private one person rest room that could be locked when in use. I don’t mind being different I do mind my safety not being consider as important as another group.

          • Ronald Carter

            Susan, ask yourself this question. Are public restrooms policed? Have they ever been? Then in what sense has the transgender law created any new situations where it’s now easier to sneak into the wrong restroom than it ever was before?

      I can’t believe she actually targeted those who identify as faith leaders in churches and schools!! Can YOU?
      To single out another group like that with such hate and discrimination! Wow!
      Now imagine any of THEM dared to say something as negative about lesbians! Yikes!
      Oh that’s right. That would be a hate crime.
      Must be nice to have such special status as a protected “class” (!?)
      Such flagrant hypocrisy is nauseating. Isn’t it, “Ron”?

      • Ronald Carter

        “Special status” – oh, do mean like gay marriage? That’s not a gay privilege, it’s equal rights. Privilege would be something like gay people not paying taxes. Like churches don’t.

        “To single out another group like that with such hate and discrimination! Wow!”

        Where did she do that, “Last Trump”? Would you like to talk about subjects you clearly know nothing about some more, “Last Trump”?

      • TheKingOfRhye

        “Must be nice to have such special status as a protected “class” (!?)”

        You don’t understand the concept of “protected class”, apparently. It doesn’t refer to people themselves, but a characteristic of people that is protected under anti-discrimination laws. Such as race, age, or sex….or even religion. “Protected class” doesn’t mean someone is being given “special status.”

        • The Last Trump

          Clearly you haven’t been paying attention.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Apparently you haven’t. You’re using the term “protected class” wrong, like I said.

          • Ronald Carter

            Maybe give him a full-color illustration.

      • Ronald Carter

        “I can’t believe she actually targeted those who identify as faith leaders in churches and schools!!”

        Hmm. Very interesting tantrum. Let’s see if there’s any truth in it. Let’s examine her statement closely:

        “Just read [the news] every morning and look at the child predators in
        our state. They are not transgender people. In fact, more and more are
        teachers, coaches and faith leaders.”

        So apparently her entirely calm and entirely factual statement is somehow in your eyes an “attack”. That’s EXTREMELY fascinating, Last Trump, it makes me (and no doubt, others) wonder if there’s something wrong with you. Well, actually, VERY wrong with you. Especially when you go on to say that this is singling teachers, coaches and faith leaders out with “hate” and with “discrimination”, even though she told the truth. Even though she TOLD THE TRUTH. Are you DENYING that faith leaders can be child predators?

        “Now imagine any of THEM dared to say something as negative about lesbians!”

        Well, first of all, they can’t, because it wouldn’t be the truth. That’s MY litmus test right there, Last Trump. Is it the truth? If it is, then it’s immediately disqualified from being hate or discrimination. Wow. Just wow. To have to explain this to you when a child could understand it…amazing.

        “Oh that’s right. That would be a hate crime.”

        Not necessarily, but it would be wrong. As in, incorrect. As in, nonsense. As in, false. Get it now? Am I helping at least?

        “Such flagrant hypocrisy is nauseating. Isn’t it, Ron?”

        No, Last Trump, because it isn’t hypocrisy. It’s a perfectly valid statement which can be easily verified. I can see those really cause you trouble in the real world, that is, the one we live in pre-rapture.

    • Semp

      True.
      Lots of those “faith leaders” she refers to are clergy in the liberal churches, people who form part of the LGBT “community.”

      • Ronald Carter

        >coughcoughcoughcough<

        • Semp

          Cough all you want to, Haggard is not a pedophile.
          If you want some links to documented cases of liberal clergy pedophiles, there’s loads of them.

          • Ronald Carter

            Pedophiles exist in all walks of life. If you are telling me that conservative Christianity is magically free of them then you are naively mistaken.

          • gogo0

            not mistaken, they are delusional. every christian that molests kids is not a “true christian” and thus keeps the group free of criticism. adults adhering to the logic of children, it would deserve pity if they werent so noisy about it

          • Semp

            You’re still lying about Haggard, he is not a pedophile.

            On the other hand, the big gay hero Harvey Milk was. Christians do not admire pedophiles, homosexuals honor them. Two vastly different moralities.

          • Ronald Carter

            No, Harvey Milk was not a pedophile. Lying for Jesus is still lying. And homosexuality has nothing to do with pedophilia.

    THANK YOU Heather for mentioning Terry Bean! The Human Rights Campaign should always always ALWAYS be referred to in that context.

  • Jeff Tilley

    Houston is proof that electing lesbians to government office can be very damaging to the citizenry. Alabama’s Todd simply amplifies what we already know about giving homosexuals a microphone – and that is they’re going to do something – ANYTHING – to attempt a hit job on Christianity.

      How is this “a hit job on Christianity”?

            No. Reread the article if you are capable. I will not spoon feed you.

          • Ronald Carter

            I see, so rather than explain what you’re talking about, you’d prefer to be patronizing and sneering. Good luck in life.

          • http://www.dontneednostinkinwebsite.com/ Midlandr

            No, just factual. Patronizing is your reply.

          • Ronald Carter

            So asking if I’m comprehension challenged and suggesting you need to spoon feed me for asking you to clarify yourself isn’t patronizing. You could just keep your mouth shut, you know.

    Children need the Church to learn of God’s instructions. The Church is vital to all mankind for the life-saving Gospel message of Jesus Christ. All children have rights to innocence, Biblical morality, sanity, and normality. “Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.'” (Matthew ch.19) The USA must not oppress the Church by becoming like Nazi Germany this century. Nazi Germany forced genocide and imperialism; today’s USA forces infanticide and Sodomy. Nations are evil when they oppose what the Holy Bible teaches. There hasn’t been any exception. It’s America’s turn to learn the hard lesson.

    The real threat is the LGBTQ who force its views on our children with indoctrination in public schools and the public arena.

    What is sad is most of what she says is true as far as teachers, church leaders & such. However, I do find it ironic that she works for an organization founded by a pedophile that was acquitted because the young man didn’t want to testify. I don’t believe it’s the transgenders that most are worried about as much as it opens the door to so many perverts & pedophiles to use these restrooms & being backed by this law. Most transgenders are probably already using the restrooms that they identify with especially in our time because of how advanced we’ve become, you can’t tell the difference in many many cases so we don’t even notice. It’s not really those that we’re concerned about because we don’t even know most of the time. It’s the others that will abuse this law.

  • ComeOnPeople!

    Media is making a sect of people out to be what is causing all the whoas in the world just like media did in Germany and in other places right before the started rounding that group of people . And because they had already preprogrammed the masses no one cared as they rounded them up. That is what all this is about people! It’s about propaganda and preparing people via movies, news and TV programs to think a certain way. I through out Devil vision long ago and believe little in the news, at least not the way they are spinning it. Study history and you will see just how powerful propaganda is and how they can kill millions as neighbors just watch and allow it to happen. Look deeper then the smoke screen and remember that when we are not taught historical atrocities , we will repeat them.

    Heather – could we have some clarification on Commenting Guideline 9:

    9) The posting of photographs, videos and links to external sites is prohibited.

    Since so many notes include them is this not actually the case or is it only talking about clickable links? If only clickable why the difference?

  • DLCraig

    She is partly right but her intent is to deceive which is the same thing as lying. The only truth she has told us is that the majority of child molesters are not transgender which is absolutely true. But she glosses over the fact that those child molesters are in fact, by virtue of their crimes, criminal sexual perverts. They see nothing wrong with all manner of sexual perversion and gender confusion and likewise see nothing wrong with the criminal activities they engage in.

    It’s shameful that we send impressionable young people to colleges and universities where they are taught that,”anything goes” and that there is no moral right or wrong. Then when they graduate and engage in what we taught them, we send them to jail.

    This schizophrenic reaction is not lost on the perverted professors which is why they are attempting to legalize all forms of perversion and will attempt to make the rest us join in celebrating their criminal activities.

    Now we can see that God was right all along that such things are an abomination.

    May things like this continue to wake people up to the truth of God and seek eternal life with Him while all those who get knee deep in such perversions and refuse to repent are cast out.

    Revelation 21:6-8 “And he [Jesus] said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
