It is Republican lawmakers, and not transgender people, who are the real danger in public bathrooms.

Dead State, Gay Star News, and Friendly Atheist are all reporting that Republican politicians are more of a menace in public bathrooms than transgender people.

The reports are based on an earlier report issued by Dan Avery at News Now Next debunking the myth that transgender people using public bathrooms pose some sort of threat.

The multiple reports indicate that no transgender individual has ever been arrested for sexual misconduct in a public bathroom, while at least three Republican lawmakers have been arrested for sexual misconduct in a public bathroom.

Former U.S. Senator Larry Craig, Florida state Representative Bob Allen, and Mississippi Congressman Jon Hinson were all Republican lawmakers, and were all arrested for sexual misconduct in a public bathroom.

As for the big myth that transgender people using public bathrooms pose some sort of threat, a new report issued by Media Matters cites experts from twelve states – including law enforcement officials, state human rights workers, and sexual assault victims advocates – who debunk the myth that transgender non-discrimination laws have any relation to incidents of sexual assault or harassment in public restrooms.

Yet despite the evidence, Republican lawmakers, encouraged by conservative Christians, continue to try and harass and intimidate the transgender community with mean-spirited and hopelessly misguided bathroom laws.

Currently a new North Carolina law that unfairly bans transgender people from accessing public facilities like bathrooms and locker rooms that correspond with their gender identity is receiving a great deal of negative attention as celebrities as diverse as Charles Barkley and Bruce Springsteen have come out to denounce the draconian new law.

Meanwhile, in Kansas lawmakers are considering new legislation that would pay students a $2500 bounty for reporting on transgender classmates using the “wrong” bathroom.

Bottom line: If you’re concerned about public bathroom safety, it is Republican politicians, and not transgender people, that are most likely to be engaged in sexual misconduct. It is a myth that transgender people pose a danger in public bathrooms, a myth promoted by right-wing conservative Christians who hate what they don’t understand.
