Arizona law

So I read that AZ is trying to make it a law that gives police the right to stop women from using the restroom until they show proof they are female via an ID. Why the heck should I show my ID to go pee? I feel a little violated by this law, what are your opinions?

It's Arizona... stupid laws there should not surprise anyone, anymore

However, yeah, that law would make me feel violated as well

If this is true, this must mean that AZ has absoloutely no other problems besides the scourge of possible cross dressers or transsexuals using restrooms.  

Do you have a link for this?  It sounds crazy and impossible to enforce!

 They do tha because of the gender bending thats so prevelant today.

If a transperson is REALLY a female, then their ID should be changed, permitting them into a female bathroom.

There are, however, a lot of sick dudes that probably would put a dress on and claim transgenderedness(idk if thats a word lol), just to asault women while they are vulnerable.

And I agree, it'd be hard to enforce, and would violate people.

Hey Arizona, as a resident of our fine state.

When I've been at a public event, to support our public activities, you know; like our Sun Devils, Suns, Diamondbacks, Cardinals, etc., I've had to use the men's restrooms, not because, I've wanted to get a peek. It's because I had to go pee and your stupid zoning laws prevent for a correction of this issue. I'm embarrass but I had to go.

So please, before you pass a dumb law that will just embarrass everyone when some dweeb cop IDs a poor woman thinking she is a man. Fix the problem at hand, like most of the other places around the country has done the last tweenty years.

They have extra money to enforce that?

Because too many persons are attempting to use the wrong bathroom for their gender because they `feel' like the other.  Be outraged, violated.  I'd be upset, too.

That's what I was thinking.  Bathroom police now?  I'll pee at home.

And it just isn't an ID, they want to see your birth certificate. It is a stupid law and there is no way to really enforce it.
