On April 11, Rep. Tom McKay (R-Anchorage) asks whether HB 99 lets biological males shower with girls. Click image to watch video.

Alaska State Rep. Jennie Armstrong (D-Anchorage) was unable to answer a simple question about whether her House Bill 99 would permit biological males to enter women’s shower rooms and undress in front of little girls.

Armstrong’s bill seeks to add “gender identity and expression” to the long list of protected classifications that are protected from discrimination in Alaska. In practical application, the bill would allow prohibit sex-based limits or separations when it comes to all public accommodations.

During an April 11 hearing in the House Community & Regional Affairs Committee, Rep. Tom McKay (R-Anchorage) asked a clarifying question about how Armstrong’s bill might impact women and girls.

After noting that Armstrong’s bill would apply to any establishment that is accessible to the public, including retail stores, restaurants, parks, hotels, etc., McKay asked the following question:

“Would that include government buildings such as schools, university buildings, and would that include bathrooms, locker rooms, shower rooms where you could have a situation where a biological male decides that he’s a female and he enters a girls’ locker room or shower room or bathroom – where for example my granddaughter is – and he undresses in front of her,” McKay asked. “Is that what could possibly happen under this legislation? Because if that’s the case, I’m obviously opposed to that.”

An obviously uncomfortable Armstrong giggled while struggling to answer the question.

Rep. Jennie Armstrong (D-Anchorage) struggles to answer a question about whether her House Bill 99 would let biological males enter women’s shower rooms and undress in front of girls.

“I’m also opposed to people exposing themselves inappropriately in that way,” she said with a laugh. “Umm, I will pass this question to Mr. Corbisier.”

Rob Corbisier, who serves as the executive director of the Alaska Commission on Human Rights, then took a stab at addressing McKay’s concerns. He began by affirming that the bill would, indeed, impact all public educational institutions and government buildings.

“I don’t know what the answer to your question is,” Corbisier added. “This is obviously not a circumstance that we have faced before, and I don’t know how we would end up handling that. I mean, fundamentally, if it is a government practice and it is discriminatory, then it would fall within our jurisdiction.”

Armstrong’s staffer, Tristan Walsh then spoke up in defense of the bill.

“Trans persons are usually just looking for a place to pee in peace,” he claimed, adding that they are much more likely to be victims of a whole host of crimes and offenses.

“Generally speaking, the concept that persons would try and intrude on spaces for the sake of criminal activity or preying on children is, uh, not reflected in fact or the data that has been collected….”

In fact, there have been multiple examples of biological men showering and exposing themselves in front of women and girls. Earlier this year a man claiming to be a woman entered a YMCA facility in California where he exposed himself to a young teenager who was showering. California state law allows for this.

Closer to home, less than two weeks ago, several Mat-Su women reported that a gender-confused biological man walked into the women’s locker room at the Wasilla-based Alaska Club and proceeded to disrobe and shower in front of them.

  • Bruce Probert says:

    What part of there are 2 sexes do they not understand? for the vast majority we understand that a man in a girl’s bathroom is not right in the least. less than 1 percent should not dictate to the majority. Having empathy for the transgender is not the same as celebrating their dysphoria to falsely claim it’s a good thing is ludicrous…..

    • Chuck Anziulewicz says:

      If a transwoman goes through the pain and expense of gender confirmation surgery, breast augmentation, etc., as has made a great effort to pass as a woman, who would you expect her to shower with? You claim women won’t want to, and maybe you ASSUME men won’t want to, either. But either way, transgender Americans are just as entitled to public accomdation as you are. So try coming up with solutions, okay?

      • Rebecca Hinsberger says:

        This trans situation being foisted on the entire normal population, which is 99 % of us, is costly in every way to the rest of us. Here is a possible solution. The physical risks of exposures, attacks and perversion going on in bathrooms would be eliminated by separating them from us in a separate bathroom. The question is, who is going to fund this? How about the trans and queer people set up their own funding organizations to pay for all the special accomodations they require in public and government run places, instead of demanding that tax payers and private business owners foot the bill for the billions it will cost nationwide to design and build bathrooms specifically for them. Then comes the hairy issue of whether all commercial and public places should HAVE to provide those accomodations against their conscience or policies, and constitutional rights. Remember the conservative cake bakers getting sued for not baking cakes for homosexual’s wedding cakes? It becomes a parallel issue to the abortion loving left suing and trying force abortion acceptance and contraception on everyone. Yes its the same angry people pounding their fists and burning down buildings and physically attacking busineses and individuals, like Supreme Court Justices and Olympic level femal athletes, and private schools, and pregancy centers, and churches. Yes, these are the ones demanding you accomodate them with billions of dollars in bathroom facilities, or just accept their perverted intrusion into the middle of yours ( and your children’s) most vulnerable and private activities in a public bathroom. Consider the sexual assaults of innocent children, the filming of unsuspecting disrobed individuals in store bathrooms ( Target stores notorious), etc. all perpetrated by perverts using unisex ( or not) bathrooms in public places. Call or email the legislators in Juneau who may have lost their minds, and tell them flat NO! to HB 99!!!

      • B says:

        Just curious Chuck, you live in West Virginia. Correct? Why do you insist on bullying your way into issues that are two thousand and twenty-eight hundred (2,800) miles away from you?
        Purusing the legacy news outlets this week I see that they are heavily pushing a pro homosexual drag queen narrative for Alaska. I also understand that the Ak State legislators are also being overtly pressed to vote for your agenda.
        Objectively, people living in Alaska can only surmise this onslaught of homosexual propaganda is part of a well organized, collective group ( who I suspect you are a member of ) whose main objective is promotion of your homosexuality agenda. Per se an internet/phone bank used to flood homosexual delusional thoughts that are directed towards a precise populace of mostly young, unsuspecting, and impressionable children and even some adults.
        As for your opening statement it exposes your delusional thought processes. The idea that YOU would promote and encourage people to go so far as to self mutilate is appalling! Do you possibly gain some sort of sexual or mental pleasure from this horrific, irreversible and lifetime painful act? No matter how much mutilating surgery is performed, no matter how many harmful drugs that will have to be injected for the lifetime of the transvestite, their DNA is still intact and in charge hence the need for the overwhelming use of drugs to suppress their male DNA.
        A sane, educated and rational heterosexual society will never agree to conform to your delusional thoughts of what gender dysphoria should be.
        Alaskans fight back against the homosexual agenda. Vote, petition your legislators, boycott!

      • Penny Johnson says:

        The solution that is likely to be acceptable to all is the third accomodation: a ‘family’ bathroom. That fixes it.

        As a senior citizen who grew in San Francisco & Oakland Calif. area, I have known of only2 of many Males and zero females trans who ever made any realistic attempt at complete trans-formations.. even when funding was fully paid for. Which proves to us that males may proclaim to want THE change.. But Hang on to their genitalia, not matter what! I have had male friends “come out to me” personally.. but cringed and shrunk back from serious discussions on the real anatomical realities of completely going through hormonal and surgical processes.

      • Protect Our Kids says:

        Simple, trans chose to be unatural and go outside of science and biology. This does not grant them some special privelage and facilitation by the %99.5 of us.
        Nor are trans victims… they are narccistic predators who act like they are the victims while gaslighting us, trying to prey on our children, and excuse men to go into female areas and create more victims of a sexual predator.
        common sense, nature, and we the people say “no”.
        If I catch a man in my grandaughters bathroom. I will be making a citizens arrest of a sexual predator.

  • Neil A DeWitt says:

    It’s time to put a stop to this crap. If a mentally ill LGBTQ+ male that dresses or thinks he is a she he can still go into the men’s bathroom and take a seat to pee if that what he thinks he needs to do. As for showers, he has no business other than making real women uncomfortable going into the women’s locker room. The women should if yhis happens laugh at him and drive him out of their until they are done showering and leave. This way he can not be denied but will be all alone. No little girls or women will be exposed to him. It’s a sickness. We should get these people help not play into their sickness. Now how many people are on tge sexual assault lists and in prison for child porn? This is porn at its best. How long before someone’s female child is raped in the bathroom or shower or molested at least? It’s time yo stop this crap now. men regardless of their mental problems have no rights to be in women’s bathrooms or locker rooms!

  • Elizabeth Henry says:

    I listened to the committee meeting and their attempt at answering was a jumbled response the the effect that ‘not all trans people are predators’, and ‘ most just want to pee in peace’. . Closest thing to an answer and not the issue. If a faux women/man feels unsafe in his biological gender-appropriate space, he should be perfectly ok with the availability of a private dressing room / restroom away from any other gender. Why the insistence of dressing in front of biological women and girls?

  • Nunya says:

    If they pass this everything needs to stop until it gets rescinded. Nobody should go to work. If they won’t let there be a civilized society in which we aren’t debating the very basic and obvious realities of being human, then no more civilization until we get back in track. Boycott everything.

  • DaveMaxwell says:

    I called dps department of public safety in Wasilla and asked to get a clear answer to this question: is there an enforceable law that already exists that can be used to prosecute a man pretending to be a woman who decides to enter a woman’s dressing/locker room and exposes himself? Expecting what I hoped would be clear was not what I got! The answer was muddled, and presented with it depends! Where it happens, who the owner is, who the principal is etc. The female officer was flustered and I could tell she was struggling to be clear but because of convoluted restrictions found herself in an impossible situation! She finally advised me to either talk to my legislative leaders (waste of time) or call the DA ! I will try that tomorrow! No wonder why this damn mess exists! So disappointed I said have a nice day!

      Indecent Exposure
      AS 11.41.460

      • Kgak100 says:

        AS 11.41.460. Indecent Exposure in the Second Degree.
        (a) An offender commits the crime of indecent exposure in the second degree if the offender knowingly exposes the offender’s genitals in the presence of another person with reckless disregard for the offensive, insulting, or frightening effect the act may have.
        (b) Indecent exposure in the second degree before a person under 16 years of age is a class A misdemeanor. Indecent exposure in the second degree before a person 16 years of age or older is a class B misdemeanor.

      • DaveMaxwell says:

        I brought that up to the officer her answer “ it depends “

      • Larry Wood says:

        What is overlooked with the indecent exposure point, is the fact that in the Bush, 80% of the women have been sexually abused. Across the nation, it is estimated conservatively at 40%. Therefore, a male exposing himself in a place that was exclusively for females is doing harm not matter what the nut jobs may believe. Enough. Shout these nut jobs down and drive them out of office.

    • Richard K CORBeil says:

      If this law passes there will be a clear and enforceable law, but it will be to prosecute you. Anchorage….Alaska….If we don’t get a grip on this now, we will be paying the price for a long time to come.

    • Kgak100 says:

      Good for you for being persists on this don’t let it go its people like you that make a difference

    • Matthew says:

      Yea there are two AK statutes on the books that deal with this.
      The first is called indecent exposure.
      The second is called indecent viewing.
      Simply look them up. It’s all a matter of who your DA is in your community. So far as I can tell, the ones in Fairbanks, Anchorage and Juneau lack the moral fortitude to at least prosecute men who do this to women. As a matter a fact this is not my opinion but Gods truth. No DA has attempted to prosecute a man for either illegally exposing himself nor for illegally viewing another person. The viewing statute comes from the girls perspective. Did the woman have a reasonable expectation of privacy.

  • Ceak says:

    This is terrifying. Locker rooms and restrooms are supposed to be safe places for women to go. Why are we putting women in danger, to appease these people? This would be brushed off as complete nonsense a few years ago.

    • Kgak100 says:

      It is compete nonsense and 1% of the population should not set any policy trans males want to use the female bathroom because they are ashamed to use the men’s bathroom while wearing a dress or there a dam pervert that’s it in America and as an advanced society we hold women as sacred our wife’s and daughters need to be protected and any trans will certainly be made clear they will not be permitted to enter any bathroom my wife or daughter is currently in that’s it as far as Wasilla Alaska club vote with your dollar as people did with budweiser they have lost millions over this if you wife & children go there stop I bet the contract does not say they allow males in the locker room pull your dollars

      • Larry Wood says:

        In Alaska, it is estimated that there are about 500 who ID as transgender. Meaning they are .06% of Alaska’s population if the pop is 735K.

    • Lisa S. says:

      The problem isn’t trans women who have gone “through the pain and expense” of castration and breast augmentation. If Jazz Jennings walked into a women’s shower, no one would notice, except reality-TV fans. The problem is fully intact males being allowed to invade women’s safe spaces just by claiming (with no evidence required — indeed contrary to obvious evidence) that they, too are women. There may not be enough truly gender-confused males to create a problem, but if you don’t think there are non-dysphoric men happy to take advantage of an opportunity to see women naked, you aren’t paying attention.

  • B says:

    Trans community, don’t tell us we have to accept you for who you are when you can’t accept yourself for who you were.
    THIS IS OBJECTIVE. There are two sexes. Male DNA and Female DNA. Period. This B.S. about never ending genders is delusional thinking. Those who prescribe to this chameleon gender train of thought are mentally unstable and HATE the rest of sane society who won’t play along with their insane games and perversions. This bill will open up all society to a never ending barrage of harassment suits aimed at sane citizens and businesses. Of citations, arrests and even jail for so called “hate” crimes of objective, rational, sane thought and Constitutional free speech.
    Listen up people, It will demand by law that you prescribe to this insanity of subjective, delusional, “you hurt my feelings thinking therefore I will punish you” agenda. It will do away with all morals and sanity that society is built upon. These new laws and legislation are also a slippery slope that will allow homosexuals, lesbians and so called gender benders to change their gender by the minute, hour, day or month to suit their agenda and law suits into forcing you and society into submitting to their will. Meaning you don’t submit to their present state of mental instability, say wrong pronouns, wrong anything “BY THEIR TRAIN OF UNSTABLE, SUBJECTIVE, IRRATIONAL THOUGHT” and you will be punished by the stripping away of your rights, your money, your property, your family, your freedom, your life.
    Call it what you will; authoritarian, socialism, communism. It all turns out the same.
    Study up:
    Remember the gulags of Russia, the reeducation camps of Cambodia and China?
    FACT; Literally millions and millions dead because of non correct think or speak? This is real, this is what is in store for your future, your children’s future, America’s future if these so called one way “hate crime” laws are enacted.
    Look at Alaska public schools. Your kids belong to the socialists that now run them. Grooming of your children by “drag queens” who are nothing more than delusional, perverted male homosexuals deliberately dressed up as comforting fake women, mother figures to draw your children in to believing homosexual lifestyle is something good. It’s a lifestyle of body mutilation and rape. Remember these delusional humans grow their numbers by literally touching and brainwashing your young, innocent and impressionable children, whether that be in Anchorage public schools, Anchorage libraries or naked chameleon perverts in The Alaska Clubs. These delusion laws, if enacted, will grow exponentially with time and bet money on it the Liberal Alaska Supreme Court will see to it.
    People this not hate speech. This is about not letting irrational, subjective, unstable humans, homosexuals, lesbians and pedophiles run society.
    Do not be afraid!
    Speak up, group up and fight back.
    Stay informed.
    Protect your family, your children.
    Boycott groups, stores and businesses that cater to the homosexual, lesbian and pedophile agenda. Go woke go broke. If you know of these groups, stores and businesses let your family, friends and neighbors know. Boycott!
    Call your representatives, write your editorials.
    Make your voices heard !

    Changing clothes in a locker room is not indecent exposure. It’s not a big deal. If you aren’t comfortable seeing other people naked, don’t use the room that people get naked in.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Andy, good try with the fear-mongering. This entire nation – this entire world is being monitored by the evil that wants to take us down. If we are on a list, we were put on that list a long time ago. Don’t be afraid People. This is our world and we have to stand up for it and our freedom.

    • ProtectOurWorld says:

      Andy, you are correct… we do fear what the trans are doing to females and children. This bill is the proof of the danger. But it isn’t a phobia, it is a legitimate and obvious threat by what is actually playing out in our world. The perversion and unnatural insanity needs therapy, not be allowed to prey on society.
      Here is the narccism… trans claim to be victims and under represented… the reality is, they prey on women and children and when we stand to protect our kids and women, they cry victimhood and gaslight us as the bad people. Trans are .005 of the population, mathematically, they are way way over represented.
