Who's Bathroom Bill?

"Bathroom bill hits Senate floor."

Bathroom Bill took a wide stance,
Bathroom Bill took down his pants
Bathroom Hill took a look over
Bathroom Bill lost his composure.

Straight, Once?
Unacceptably cis-normative. Work on it.

I honestly don't know anyone who has an issue with a transgender person using the bathroom he or she is most comfortable in. The problem comes because the laws guaranteeing them that right allow anyone of any sexual orientation, including people whose orientation leans toward children, to have the same privilege just by claiming they're sexually confused. While transgendered people don't have a statistical record of assaulting people in restrooms, rapists and pedophiles do. As time goes on, and bathrooms get remodeled and new ones built, the problem will be resolved. In the meantime, we need to stop vilifying women who would like some sense of privacy and safety for them and their children.

From the link:
"“So, the ways in which we define gender today in 2017 in Texas or in America, more broadly, are very different from how gender was defined, say, 100 years ago,” Skidmore said."

Seems like a winning argument. Also, when James Naismith invented basketball the peach baskets were twenty feet tall owing to the differences in gravity.

Simple solution. No more than one toilet per businesses. One person at a time.
Inconvenient, but Americans are adaptable.

The Fleischers loved to do things like this in "Popeye". We kids loved it, and the grownups who knew the "real" lyrics to the song would be rolling in the asiles too. And all three of the leads could sing in character! Truly a great great series of shorts.

I can't believe it took more than 30 minutes before the NSFW version was posted.

Truly. It is a simple common sense solution. Bathrooms with a locking door. One person, one toilet at a time with no sex or gender restrictions. If there are a lot of people using the public facility then have several bathrooms.

Trader Joe's does this. Several restaurants we frequent have converted to this method.
A couple or a few.. single use bathrooms. Identical to each other. Yeah. You may have to wait and maybe a guy or girl or a mom and little kids or whatever will be coming out...but who cares. It is a bathroom and I have to GO!!! Whoever you are...just leave the place tidy and don't pee on the seat. Thanks.

My guess is that most of those supporting the "simple solution" are women. In my experience, places with individual unisex bathrooms invariably omit urinals from the design. Here's a newsflash: men do not want to touch the lid of a public restroom to raise it. If you're a room for everyone, it must have a urinal.

You think we, women, like SITTING on that nasty seat? :-( Have a urinal...no problem. They just require a bit more space in the bathroom and extra plumbing.

We have one that we removed from the bathroom in our old business when we went from two to one bathroom. The urinal is on the wall of a building facing our deck. It makes a great planter and fuchsias look fabulous in it draping over the edge. We have also put a small fountain pump in it so that water continually streams down the back and splashes on the decorative rocks surrounding the plants. (Husband is a plumber)

I would think that people with vaginas would have an issue with people with penises -- whatever their sex or gender -- being in their bathroom or locker room.

It was a curious thing at the Women's March. Those pussy hats and pussy body costumes all looked a lot like vaginas and uteruses and fallopian tubes. All of them. None of them -- none -- looked like penises and testicles.

To hear them talk the last year or so, you would think they would be outraged. After all, they would have us believe that people with penises can be women. But at the march, they were graphically telling the world that being a woman means having a vagina, etc., and not a penis.

Quite curious.

Mark said...

Isn't it a wonderful thing, by the way, that we can dispense with all the niceties of discourse and talk so freely about body parts -- and not only using the technical terms, but also the crude and juvenile ones as well. Isn't it great, what with March attendees bringing their little daughters, that now we can be treated to little kids saying, "pussy, pussy, pussy."

With their complaints of Trump, several years ago, getting down into the gutter, isn't it great that now they have taken us down into the bowels of the sewers? You would think that, being so offended, they would want to rise up out of the gutter, but then that would require them have some measure of dignity or credibility.

Great Lord! Why were those guys all fighting over Olive Oyl, who, as proven in this small video has breath bad enough to instantly wilt a fresh daisy at 3'. She must be really good at ... uh ... er ... something!
