Can you not?


An article in the Examiner headlined “Butch Lesbian Mistaken for Male Ejected from McDonalds” is positively ripe for deadly facepalms. Emphasis mine:

The LGBT community’s crusade to make bathrooms gender-neutral has claimed its first casualty, and it is one of their own.

Excuse me, I have to go puke in a (woman’s) toilet.

It’s bad enough that we have turds panicking over something that shouldn’t be an issue, but let’s toss incompetent media coverage into the mix too. After all, it’s only a casualty if it’s a cis person who’s harassed in the washroom, right?

The study focused on people who identify as transgender or gender non-conforming/genderqueer in the Washington, DC area and found that an overwhelming majority — 70 percent — had experienced some sort of negative reaction when using a bathroom.

Again, old stats, but I doubt the trend has changed. If anything the Genital Police are even more zealous nowadays. But it’s still not a problem, at least for the Examiner, until a cis person has been targeted.

Oi vey.

    I think it’s time for civil disobedience in the form of “I’ll sit where I fucking want”

    This whole issue makes me want to unzip (given that I’m equipped for that) and pee on lawmakers’ floors, cars, shoes, heads, whatever offers itself for micturation terrorism.

    Marcus, if you do pee on their cars be sure to get it on the interiors. And inside the gas tanks if you have the range.

    I’m always hating on the media for how they handle lgbtqia issues. I avoid the news as much as possible honestly, but it still finds its way to me. Like logging out of hotmail and being redirected to MSN, where I saw this shit.
