Better watch this one quick. This 2009 video archive of the 16×9 news program featuring the John Fulton case was only uploaded yesterday but trans are already trying to censor it and prevent it from being viewed- by reporting it to YouTube as “promoting hatred and violence” (!) :

See: ” A disgusting piece on trans women in women’s facilities. Please kill it with fire.”

Fulton was the owner of an Ontario women-only gym (which had only one open shower and change area) who was dragged before the Ontario Human Rights Commission three years ago by man with a penis, Lisa MacDonald- who insisted it was his human right to parade his dick into the open women’s shower.

The transwoman involved should understand that while she is pre-op and the changing and shower facilities are communal, that not only is she going to be outed every time she uses them, but is also going to make the other women there uncomfortable. The gym owner, should haved said that while she’s pre-op, she can’t really use certain facilities within the gym, and maybe point her in the direction of a gym that has mroe suitable facilities, but (and I was about to say “but this is America, where you sue first and ask questions later), it’s Canada.

    At my local leisure centre which was built in the past 5 years, they’ve done away with sex segregated changing areas, and have installed all cubicle changing areas, even in the showers. I don’t think this was anything to do with trans issues, but as a space saver ie if there weren’t sex segregated toilets, the queue’s to the women’s toilets maybe a little shorter.

    The tone of the report was bad, it may as well have just been presented by Jerry Springer.

    All in all, this is something that could have been easily resolved before it got to a court, so I’m lead to believe that there is more to this story than we have been told.
