The problem of unisex bathrooms and male perverts

first_imgThe Federalist 9 February 2017Voyeurism is an enormous monster that lives in the shadows of our culture, continually nourished by advancing technology, pervasive pornography, and increasing opportunity.It Happens More Than You ThinkInherent in the question “How can we get men to stop doing this?” is the question of prevalence. Is voyeurism widespread, or limited to a few scattered predators? A look at the literature and studies on voyeurism reveals surprisingly little. In a day and age where every topic has seemingly been studied in minute detail, there is a glaring paucity of good information on the subject.But the data that does exist is eye-opening. Templeman (1991) found that no less than 42 percent of college men in a rural sample reported that they had engaged in voyeurism. Bradford et al. (1992) reported that “of 443 adult males studied, 115 admitted to voyeurism” (cited from Krueger, 2016). Rye & Meaney (2007) found that 61 percent of the men in their university sample would engage in voyeurism if the likelihood of getting caught was 25 percent (cited from Krueger, 2016).These enormous percentages suggest that voyeurism is far more prevalent than commonly thought. It’s not only because of the amount of men who are voyeurs or express voyeuristic desire, but also because of the amount of acts committed by those who are recognized as paraphilic (anomalous or deviant in their sexual behavior). Langstrom & Seto (2006) cite a 1988 study of sexual deviants by Abel, “Exhibitionistic and voyeuristic acts occurred up to 150 times more often than official police arrest statistics indicated.”We see this not only in the literature, but also in the news. In May 2016, David Walker (archived) was convicted of voyeuristic activities, including filming “hundreds of women in swimming pool changing rooms,” most of which probably occurred in unisex facilities, a common layout in public pools in the United Kingdom.In December 2015, George Thomas was convicted of voyeurism after police found personally filmed voyeuristic videos of more than 3,500 people in his possession. Yes, that number is correct. These were recorded over a six-year period. Thomas was finally discovered when a female colleague found a recording device in the unisex staff shower room.Voyeurism Seems to Be On the RiseSome of these cases have had high visibility, but are incidents actually on the rise? As Krueger explains in “Noncontact Paraphilic Sexual Offenses” (2016), it has been difficult to track historically because of how it is criminally categorized in different countries, including the United States. In Great Britain, however, they do have a criminal offense for voyeurism.We did a search at The Law Pages, and found a significant rise in voyeurism convictions. In the years 2006-2009 there were only 2.25 convictions per year. A significant rise was noted in 2010-2012 where the average rose to six convictions per year. However, over the last four years, 2013-2016, this number has exploded even higher, up to an average of 16 convictions per year.These scary statistics on voyeurism prevalence, incidents per perpetrator, and the exponential rise of convictions have a significant bearing on “bathroom bills” and allowing access of biologic males into women’s safe spaces. At WOMAN Means Something, we oppose trans-advocacy policies and bills like Canada’s Bill C-16 which, although well-intentioned, put many women at risk of sexual violence.On January 14, 2017 we released a set of data, with original sources, that documents no fewer than 140 incidents in North America and the United Kingdom of sexual violence to women by biologic males in safe spaces like washrooms and change-rooms. Seventy-six of these recorded incidents took place in 2015 and 2016. To our knowledge this is the most comprehensive database on these kinds of incidents available. The vast majority of these were of non-transgender males who took advantage of unisex spaces to perpetrate voyeuristic activities against women.Given the statistics found in the literature, it is highly likely that these incidents represent the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Policy makers and politicians need to understand that the push to open women’s spaces is taking place in the middle of a voyeurism epidemic. Rights and freedoms don’t live in a vacuum. In this case the rights of one group (trans individuals) dramatically affects the rights of another (females).STATISTICS: http://womanmeanssomething.com/violencedatabase/http://thefederalist.com/2017/02/09/data-suggests-unisex-bathrooms-bonanza-male-perverts/?utm_source=The+Federalist+List&utm_campaign=1f5a3d1bb2-RSS_The_Federalist_Daily_Updates_w_Transom&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_cfcb868ceb-1f5a3d1bb2-83919629last_img read more

Ellsworth boys use hot shooting to edge Orono

Instead of fading, the team delivered one of its best performances yet.The Eagles were .500 after returning from their annual trip to Aroostook County, but after making 13 3-pointers in their Thursday win over Caribou, the team was feeling confident. Two days later, that hot shooting continued in a big way from the confines of home.Ellsworth put on an impressive shooting display Saturday to beat Orono 66-60 in a game that marked a positive end to the 2017 portion of the Eagles’ schedule. The team made nine shots from beyond the arc to earn a clutch win as it enters the meat of its schedule in the coming weeks.“We have a lot of people that can shoot and have a green light to shoot, especially from 3,” Ellsworth head coach Peter Austin said. “It’s been working for us lately, and we’re hoping it will carry over.”This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textEllsworth (4-3) took the lead early behind two 3-pointers from Brad Smith and stayed ahead of Orono for most of the first half. With eight points from Jackson Curtis in the second quarter, the Eagles went into halftime with a 35-32 lead.Orono, though, took the lead in the second half and led most of the way. The Red Riots (2-2) had a 46-43 advantage after three quarters and led by as many as six points during the second half.Yet Ellsworth eventually took the lead in the fourth quarter and put the game away with a late surge. Clutch free-throw shooting from Harris and a breakaway steal and layup from Smith put the Eagles up 64-57 with less than a minute to go, and the Red Riots ran out of time to make a comeback.“We made those extra passes and were able to hit the big shots we needed,” Smith said. “We were also able to force turnovers close to the end.”Curtis scored a team-high 17 points for the Eagles, and Harris added 16. Smith and Jared Hamilton had 11 and 10, respectively, and Dylan Taplin scored six of the remaining 12 for an Ellsworth team that has now shot 54 percent from the floor over the past two games.Unlike the first meeting between Ellsworth and Orono this season, the Red Riots went to the paint to force Ellsworth’s defenders to commit to the post in this matchup. The result was a closer game that could’ve been lost had the Eagles not shot well from the 3-point line and played efficient defense against the Red Riots’ primary offensive threats.“We did a lot of things well, but I thought we gave up a few too many offensive boards,” Harris said. “That’s something we’re going to have to work on in practice, but if we can keep playing well offensively, that’s going to be a big help.”Depending on the path of the snowstorm predicted to hit Hancock County next week, Ellsworth’s next game will be at home against Washington Academy (6-2) at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 4, or against Hermon (5-0) at 7 p.m. next Saturday, Jan. 6. The team will then host rival Mount Desert Island (5-1) on Jan. 10.How Ellsworth fares against those teams, each of which is ranked in Class B North’s top five at the moment, will have a major effect on where it ends up in the Heal standings as the the second half of the season unfolds.“We just have to get a spark,” Smith said. “Once we got a spark tonight, we saw what we can do against a good team. If we fix the mistakes, we can do even better.” MPA approves golf, XC, field hockey, soccer; football, volleyball moved to spring – September 10, 2020last_img read more

Thank you for your input. +1 Vote up Vote down Jim · 392 weeks ago Do not try and pass on the shoulders of the highway or roadway. There is a good discussion on kansas.com going on this issue. While I hope this young man fully recovers he is completely at fault and is paying the consequences. It could have very easily involved many others in the other lane instead of just his car.
