Actually the solution is to make all LU restrooms at athletic events open to people based upon their birth, tranistioned to, or presenting gender identity. That way there'd be no special barrier for Trans fans watching their team play at LU.

Failing that, they can have lots of family restrooms (and port a potties aren't a solution, unless all have to use them) in the stadium, or ban non-Trans persons from the Family restroom during games.
Under your logic we should just eliminate gender completely

Just trying to figure out the practicalities for Trans people who wish to attend away games in support of their teams at LU.

Let's see... Typically you get 1-2,000 people traveling to away games. So arrangements will be needed for *6* people per game.

Again, any school scheduling an away game at LU will be asked....why did you schedule a game at a school where the LGBT community will be abused or discriminated against?

So yes, they'll have to come up with a plan that is fair and acceptable tot he LGBT community (not what some group that disparages Trans persons or Gays thinks is 'good enough for those deviants'). Or not, and watch the GLBT groups and allies amongst their fans, alumni, students, faculty, and staff, many of whom have other axes to grind against LU question their AD for scheduling the game. Ask BYU how well their Big XII bid went when all the LGBT groups at Big XII member institutions got involved.

Either way, I'm genuinely interested to see if LU comes up with a plan, and if so, how inclusive it really will be.

And, failing an acceptable (to us) plan at LU, I'm also interested to see which AD is going to insult their LGBT students, fans, alumni, staff, athletes, and faculty by subjecting them to discriminatory barriers to support their team. Someone is going to schedule a game. And then they're going to hear a mouthful from their stakeholders.

So in this instance Tom it's ok for the minority to dictate things for the majority? I thought thats why the EC was bad bad bad

LGB are banned from employment at LU. And its unclear if there's a special dress code for LGBT persons (e.g., no rainbow logos, no proud to be LGBT, no Rainbow Belt shirts, etc.). We will see who bites first on the 'lets send our fans to Lynchburg' and then we will see what accommodations LU puts in place.

Nobody should be scheduling away games at Liberty in the first place

Don't like them? Easy. Don't watch them.

However, as day follows night, tolerant, open-minded liberals will be out picketing.

Normalizing a school where 80 percent of the worlds population is categorically excluded from the benefits of FBS participation is problematic.

I'm much less opposed to LU moving up if my teams never play them. At least I'll never have to be subjected to LU problems to watch my team.
And if and when LU plays your school, which we know you hope never happens, you'll be the firs to decry the unfortunate decision to have your team associated with them, and you'll also be the first to watch because your extreme dislike for the school will equate to not wanting to loose to them at any cost. In life, when one puts much of their attention to what they DON'T want, they usually create it happening. Careful for what you wish or lust for.

This sound like a personal issue for you. If so, it seems many here respect the strong opinion you are expressing. Maybe a better way to approach this is to make request of what you would desire. LU is very responsive and can act quickly when presented with a reasonable request. I know many of the staff and they act diligently and respectful.

Most all of your posts bash LU every conceivable time so we can assume these issues you so strongly mention are personal to you. So is you point to have transgender bathrooms for visiting fans and or all people in attendance?

Yea I think they might have trouble scheduling home games.

They also probably have no sense of FBS football history, since they figure football is only 5 years old.
