BREAKING: Pierce and Kitsap YMCA President and CEO Bob Ecklund Retires

YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties President and CEO Bob Ecklund is retiring.  You can read the YMCA’s press release at this link.
The YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties was thrust into the spotlight early on in the open-locker rooms debate in Washington State.  After quietly adopting a new policy that opened YMCA locker rooms and showers to individuals based on their gender identity, without notice to members, they were forced to rescind their policy after public outrage and a decline in memberships. They reinstated much of the policy a short time later, even earning the praise of Washington Governor Jay Inslee.

In response to the Human Rights Commission’s bathroom rule, the Just Want Privacy Campaign has been launched by Washington citizens as a way to roll back this overstep.  You can read more about how to volunteer or donate to the campaign here.

    Comparing yourself to the victims of ISIS which, by the way, include gay people who have been thrown off the sides of tall building to their death doesn t make anyone feel bad you. It makes us all realize you re desperate for sympathy because you re rightfully not getting any.

        “I am so sorry to read that even Governor Jay Inslee thinks it’s okay to disrespect women [by allowing biological men into their public showers] and to not protect the women and children in his state [because transsexual disorders are the leading indicator of criminal sex offenses].”

        I think this is what Mary means.
