The Right Warned that Gender Self-Identification Would Lead To Significant Problems – Here’s One

A guy was kicked out of a shelter for being drunk and belligerent. So he went to the battered women’s shelter and said, “open up, let me in. I’m a woman.”

Transgender files complaint against shelter for abused women.

[Editor’s note: The transgender individual in this story is referred to as a male for purposes of clarity, because he is a biological male who presents as a female, and because no legal record of his female identity or name change could be discovered through research.]

“They” said it wouldn’t happen under AO 96, which in 2015 liberalized Anchorage non-discrimination laws to include sexual orientation and gender identity.

They, meaning the ACLU and advocates for gender-neutral bathrooms, promised that no transgendered individual would ever abuse the law — they simply want a place to pee.


Along came Timothy Paul Coyle, also known as Samantha Amanda Coyle. He had other plans, plans that the ACLU lawyers had perhaps foreseen but dismissed.

Coyle was banging on the door of a shelter for abused women, and he was demanding entry.

In late January, Coyle was homeless, as he so often is. He was also inebriated and got into a fight at the Brother Francis Shelter, according those familiar with the incident. In some of his legal records, he lists Brother Francis Shelter as his home; readers can safely assume the staff is familiar with him.

The Brother Francis Shelter takes both homeless men and women, but because of the circumstances of his inebriation and fight, the staff sent him over to the Hope Center, which runs a shelter for abused and battered women who are homeless.

It’s likely that Brother Francis staff figured Coyle’s assumed female identity would be enough to get him in the door, and they were just trying to move him along.

The Hope Center is run by Christians, with over 30 church partners. It also runs a soup kitchen, a culinary school to train people for jobs, and offers showers and bathrooms for both men and women.

But at night, the sleeping mats are rolled out where the food was served hours earlier, and desperate women, some who are escaping human trafficking, find safe shelter in one big room, crammed next to each other on the floor.

The women sleep beneath a large wooden cross,

  1. WOW! What a friggin’ can of worms
    were opened with this sick “gender” crappola….
    Where will it end ???

  2. Where will it end? In complete chaos of course which is the last stop for the bus of “Destruction of All Things We Believe In”.

  3. President Lazlo would sweep the streets of the vagrants and homeless.
    Dart ’em like bears if we have to.
    Everybody will be given a complete physical and psychological evaluation.
    The mentally ill will be housed and treated
    The deserving would be granted aid.
    The vagrants, drug addled, and ne’er do well’s go pick whatever crop that needs picking, or road that needs litter picked up.
    Fed, housed and provided with fresh air and productive work, they will return to normalcy lest they be caught again

  4. Prog women don’t seem to notice that they are getting the short end of the dick in this scenario. Men are better at being women, and are more respected, to boot, according to the Left. Feminists are supporting this. Something they have been complaining about for years just bit them on their asses. Hard. And they don’t feel it. Hilarious.

  5. “The women sleep beneath a large wooden cross … “

    that’s got to be uncomfortable …. wouldn’t a blanket be better?

  6. Okay, so what would happen if, instead of dividing stuff up by professed “gender” (which people don’t have, only things have), or even that by old-fashioned category known as “biological sex”, we just avoided all the silly laws, put up bathroom signs, and so forth, by dividing people into “For use Only By People With Penises Or Who Identify as Male” and “Everybody Else.” (Would that cover the practical issues and throw am adequate monkey wrench into the justice warrior lawsuits?)
