Now, Tom is just pointing to a stealth-obnoxious piece in the Boston Herald about Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick’s recent trans executive order.
The fact that its author, Hillary Chabot, saw fit to allow this spin gem says plenty:
“If this indeed is a bathroom bill, if it is there’s no doubt that it will impact the public schools,” said Kris Mineau, a longtime opponent of the bill.
Except, of course, that it is a state-level executive order.
State-level public universities?
Well, I’d hope it would affect them.
But I posted that scrensnap because of the comment to Tom’s posting. In part:
Tom, I am not sure if I would feel comfortable using the ladies room if a guy was standing there using a urinal….
Think about that.
Now especially think about that in relation to the use of women’s restrooms by transsexual women!
And think about that in relation to the use of women’s restrooms by transsexual women irrespective of whether they meet any particular activist’s definition of transsexual woman.
The only ladies’ room (not unisex restroom, but specifically-designated ladies’ room) I’ve ever seen with urinals was the one on the third floor of the old Architecture Building at Texas A&M – which was converted over from an all-male-A&M-era men’s room in the 1980s when someone finally got the idea that having no women’s rooms above the first floor of the building wasn’t such a good idea.
Even then, the urinal only remained there for a few days after the sex designation of the facility changed.
Anyone out there interested in doing a dissertation focusing on the dumbing down of discourse? Start with St. Barney’s obsession with pre-op trans women’s penises and follow the trail to that comment. If I have my Ph.D. and am on staff somewhere by the time you’re done, I’d be happy to serve as an adjunct advisor.
