Transgender Bathrooms, Is there a Vagina or Penis Officer?

Ok, here is what I don’t get. Has there been something that was stopping anyone from using whatever bathroom they wanted already? I have never once been asked to verify my gender prior to using a restroom. It was my assumption that a man that felt he was really a woman was already using the women’s restrooms. How would I know? Is there someone standing at the door to the bathroom checking? (If so, how do I get that job? Sign me up!)

This thought brings me to my next one.

As I always say when something seemingly small gets blown way out of proportion on media, what is the government really doing that they are trying to slide by us? We live with such a sheep mentality that we don’t realize that all media is owned by the same people and they talk about whatever they are told to, so if we are told to focus on this whole transgender bathroom issue, then what REAL issue is being slide by us while we are distracted?

Furthermore, once again, we as a society, have yet again figured out a way to segregate one group of people and keep the hate going. To what end? The only way our government works is if the people are too busy hating each other to notice what else is going on. This is why the media is always filled with racial “issues”, even if they have to put that slant on the story themselves.

When it is time for my to use a public restroom, I don’t give a rat’s ass who is in the stall next to me. I rarely use them anyways, so by the time I go to one its because the situation is desperate and I must go right then. I wouldn’t care if I was holding hands with the person on the toilet next to me as long as I wasn’t peeing in my pants.

I know what you are going to say, “But Linda, would you want your daughter to walk into the bathroom and see penis hanging out?” Well, just because there is a transgender person in the bathroom doesn’t mean they are going to be standing around with their penis or vaginas hanging out for all to see. (Don’t get me started on urinals at all……..They don’t belong in any bathroom.) You want to protect your child from something in a public bathroom? Go with them! You should be anyways. There are worst things that can happen in a public restroom than having another gender in it, this much I promise you.

I was asked yesterday would I want my son seeing vaginas in the men’s room. My response? Right, wrong, or indifferent, my son is 9, I am almost certain that he has seen one before or will before long. (His birth mother has 2 little girls younger than him.) You can’t protect your kids from seeing the human body. Sorry, you just can’t. And then, that goes back again to not letting them go to the bathroom alone if you are that concerned. (They shouldn’t be going alone anyways.)

The same person asked me if I would be comfortable using the bathroom with the transgender man in the stall next to me taking pictures of me. Where in the world does the fact that he is transgender mean that he is going to take pics of me? What stops anyone at all from taking pics in one way or another? (If I am desperate enough to use the public restroom, I might would autograph the pics haaaaaaa!)

Then there are the musicians that are refusing to play in states that don’t support their opinions. Really, are we swayed by this now too, or is this a set of artists that feel that they are becoming irrelevant and they want to boost their sales????? Hmmmmm, think about that a minute.

The entire point of my post is that perhaps we should be looking a little deeper to see what actual issue is being covered up. Until next time, stay out of the bathroom all together if the place you are going to doesn’t support your thoughts. It is really not so hard to live and let live. I do it all the time.

Velocity Boxing Big Size Inflatable Punching Bop Review

My son, my husband, and I have had way too much fun with this punching bop! From first inflation, which was so simple, to the actual punching it, this thing has been a joy to have. My son has some anger issues and this is a great, easy, and healthy way for him to be able to get all that out, without me or my walls suffering. My son plays football and this has been a great way for him to build upper body strength too. This thing is super sturdy, as my husband can punch it too and it just bounces right back. We did have an issue getting it to stand up, but once filled with water as it should be, we had no problem. I did attempt to contact the company about that issue, but they failed to respond to me. I figured it out myself though, and now I see that it is listed in the instructions on Amazon. Great, fun product to have and to use! I received this product in exchange for my honest opinion.

Retinol Cream Review

This is one of the better retinol creams I have used to date. The bottle is well made and allows for the product to come out very easily, which is great for people with arthritis, like me. The bottle is a really great size too, with a lot of product in it. No wimpy little tube for this cream. The cream itself feels fabulous on your face and works well with my light that I have for wrinkles. It is organic and NOT animal tested, which means that you can feel great about supporting this company and great about using the product on yourself. The cream is also paraben and mercury free, which means even more greatness! I love how smooth my skin feels after just the first use. Retinol works to unclog pores (among other things) and that is something I sorely needed at the time that I was asked to received this cream in exchange for my honest opinion of it.

Bubble Therapy Pure & Natural Bubble Bath, 3 in 1 Review

This is one of the best smelling bubble baths I have used in a long time. I generally don’t use bubble bath as I feel that it isn’t really safe for the lady parts, but with this product being all natural and with only organic ingredients, I felt safe that it would not bother my more sensitive parts. This can be used as shampoo, bubble bath or just body soap. The lather is nice and fragrant and really cleansing. I felt as though I could float away in the tub as all my stresses melted away. The scent lingers on your skin long after your bath is over. The power of scent is strong and can work to remind you of this letting go of stress every time you smell it. The bottle is well made and click shuts firmly to avoid any spills and that makes storage a breeze! I received this product in exchange for my honest opinion.

ValuePad 10 inch Tablet Review!

I needed a tablet pretty badly! I never liked the small ones that seem to disappear in my hand and I can’t read that tiny lettering on those anyways. This tablet is a great size, 10 inches and I have a super simple time reading the screen! It is lightweight enough to carry with you anywhere, and well made enough not to fall apart. It comes with a screen protector, which is so important to protect the screen from any damage, because we all know that accidents happen. It also comes packaged really well! Very secure!
I have had no problem with the screen freezing and I really believe that most days this tablet works way better than my laptop. (And is 1/4 of the price my laptop was!) The battery life is pretty amazing too. My husband took it to work with him and didn’t need to charge it all day with his intermittent usage. The camera gives a nice, clear picture as well. And it is dual, so it can take selfies with ease! I don’t know much about the workings of computer, but here is what the company says about that:
Android 4.4
•Cortex quad core CPU
•Powerful multicore graphic processors
•Dual Camera – front 0.3M, rear 2M
•HDMI output
•Bluetooth 4.0
•1G memory, 16GB storage
•Expandable storage with MicroSD cards or USB flash drives

•USB port for external keyboards, mouse, Ethernet adapters, USB flash drives, joysticks, etc
•Individually tested
•1-Year limited warranty

AND!!!!!!!! it has a usb port!!!

For such a low price, I don’t have to feel bad if my kid wants to play on it either!

You must run and get one if you are in need! Go here:

I received this product in exchange for my honest opinion. I will be including a video of the working of the tablet later but apparently my equipment (laptop) is NOT wanting to work with me, go figure.

Lunch Bag Hango – Set of Two Sizes (Small &Large) Review

Set of 2!! YAY! These lunch bags are so insulated! I forgot a bottle of water in there for a couple of days and it was still cold! Being 2 of these, there is one for me and one that is smaller that is perfect for my son to take his lunch to school too, if the ones I got weren’t pink, so I had to give that one to my niece. But they work wonderfully and she was glad to have it. That size is just perfect for smaller kid’s lunches. The larger one is perfect for adults lunch. They are well made, of great quality materials and made to last. The handle at the top is ideal for carrying them to and fro. These are really pretty, aesthetically pleasing bags too. These would make a great gift for someone because they do come in a handy gift type bag. The whole presentation of this product from box to table is beautiful! Love it! You can tell that this is a company that truly cares about their products and their customers. A+ in my book! I received this product in exchange for an honest review.

Sun’n’Fun Broad Spectrum SPF30 Sunscreen for Kids Review

Sunblock is so important and this brand makes it simple to use and being organic you get to feel so much better then smearing nasty chemicals all over your kids! The lotion type sunblock dries clear and is not greasy at all. The tube that it is in is easy to store and easy to use. It is sturdy and well made. It says that it smells like marshmallow and chocolate, which I was skeptical to begin with, but then I smelled it! It really smells that way and my son loves it! I am really sensitive to the sun and wear sunblock everyday. Although this is a kids sunblock, I still used it and it worked as intended. Which is awesome! My skin feels amazing after I use it and my child, who has eczema is not bothered by this product at all. This product also contains antioxidants that reduce free radicals and keep you looking young. It can never be too soon to start caring for your skin. The price of this product is a bit higher than others, BUT it more than makes up for it with the good feeling that comes from using organics! I received this product in exchange for an honest review.

New Radiance Naturals Vitamin C Serum Review

I don’t think that I can say often enough how much I adore Vitamin C Serums! The decrease in the appearance of aging signs is paramount! I am not really young anymore and any boost in removing those years of sun damage and just age, is really helpful! This product comes in a sturdy bottle, with a sturdy dropper (which is super important!!!) and also comes with 365 day guarantee! You simply can’t beat that. It simply works or you get your money back. No worries though, because this product does work. It smells amazing and feels amazing on your skin. I have noticed that my really old acne scars are starting to lighten up with this product and I have tried everything on those and nothing has ever worked before this product. Being all natural, organic and cruelty free, makes this product at the top of my go to list! You don’t have to worry about putting harsh man-made chemicals on your skin with this one! And you don’t have to worry about the animals it is tested on, because it isn’t! Also, this product is made in the USA, so you can feel great about supporting our country’s businesses.

Boston Sport Jump Rope Review

I used to love jumping rope when I was a child, and I found out with this jump rope that I still do! (granted not often or for long, but it does feel good to get a bit of wind in your lungs.) My son uses this jump rope mainly and while it is not exactly for kids we have found with a quick flip around his wrists its small enough for him and still big enough for me. Also, aside from doing it that way, its is actually adjustable and takes no time to adjust! That is perfect! Jumping rope is a great way to get your body moving and help you lose a little weight too, while still having some fun. This is a very durable rope, which is great because our last one didn’t last five minutes with my son. This one is still taking a beating and shows no signs of use at all! That is a sheer testimony to the quality of materials used in this one. We love this one! I received this product in exchange for an honest review.

Longest Lasting Super Bright Rim Lights – Personalized LED Colorful Wheel Lights Review

These are super easy to install, are so flipping cool! They are bike lights that just hook onto the spokes of the bike! My eight year old actually installed these himself. They made an awesome Christmas gift for him. They are really bright and make it safer when he sometimes rides near dark, (please note he doesn’t ride at night, just shortly before then!). They are motion sensored and that means that they don’t light up until the bike is rolling. They are waterproof, which is awesome because he goes through puddles all the time! They are rust resistant too. These are so awesome, I want more to strap onto different things! I received this product in exchange for an honest review.
