Access by identity a threat

Here we go again, another pretty-sounding legislative proposal with horrible intent and devastating social results, predictably brought to you by the Democratic Party.

This act would allow biological males who “identify” as female into the girls’ school dressing rooms, shower rooms, bathrooms and onto their sports teams. Anyone standing against it could be prosecuted under the law.

The bill reads, in part: “(with respect to gender identity) an individual shall not be denied access to a shared facility, including a restroom, a locker room, and a dressing room, that is in accordance with the individual’s gender identity.”

How does that serve women’s rights? It crushes them, endangering young girls, robbing them of their privacy, safely and dignity.

How can they have a chance when competing with biological males in sports? It’s absurd, outrageous, dangerous and hypocritical, but that’s what we have come to expect from that political party.

People shouldn’t let them force us into silence with this assault on common sense, morals and public safety. Will rightly outraged parents be taken to court by the government for objecting to biological males in their daughter’s locker room?

People should spread the word, contact legislators and register their objections to this offensive legislation.

As it says in Matthew 19:4, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female’?”

Stop A.C. jaywalking

I strongly agree with the recent Digital Voices comment, “Most major cities have a bike path; this should make it safer to ride in A.C.”

Bike lanes will be a great addition to Atlantic City.

Unfortunately, unless they eliminate and strongly enforce the rampant jaywalking on Atlantic Avenue, it will just be a cluster of confusion and accidents between jaywalkers, bicyclists and vehicles.

I have never seen anywhere have such a terrible problem with jaywalking like on Atlantic Avenue in Atlantic City. It’s nerve-wracking just to drive the avenue.

Good thing there is a hospital right there on New York Avenue.
