The real danger.

/The real danger.

The next time someone tries to use the “but think of the children!” argument re. policing bathroom usage, remind them that kids are more likely to be sexually assaulted in religious institutions than they are by trans people needing to pee.

(Content warning at the link; it’s Dan Savage talking about sexual assault.)

Incidentally, when I was in high school, we had a group of roving Christian evangelicals come around and lure kids into their weird cult with ice cream and brainwashing camps. Pretty much all of my female friends who got suckered inended up marrying their youth pastors. These were men who were in their mid- to late-twenties while we were all around fifteen or so, and having “sleepovers” at said pastors’ houses, in the guise of “movie nights”, was a common occurrence. It still makes my skin crawl thinking about it.
