One day I might have a reasoned response to this, but for now I mostly plan on mocking it mercilessly:

Minnesotans are the face of a new campaign by a national network of anti-LGBTQ organizations. The campaign, #askmefirst, features Christians imploring schools, businesses, and “transgender activists” to ask them for permission before allowing transgender people to use the bathroom.

Hey Christians:

#AskMeFirst before you start proselytizing.

#AskMeFirst before you open your Bible.

#AskMeFirst before you open your mouth.

#AskMeFirst before one of your priests goes to the washroom.

#AskMeFirst before you leave church. I’d rather you just stay there. 24/7.

#AskMeFirst before you broadcast the Pope.

Motherfucker, I don’t need your god damn permission fulfill basic bodily functions, you arrogant, sanctimonious self-righteous sacks of shit.

    The mildly deranged penguin points out “they” didn’t specify being asked in, say, English.

    Human: “Yq o pa waat, ee yoo?”
    Bigot: “Huh?”
    Human: “Righty-ho, be back in a mo…”

    Does everyone have to ask for permission? I don’t want to share a bathroom with people who are so interested in other people’s bodily functions. Newsflash, bigots, YOU are the bathroom creeper you’re so worried about!

    How does anyone do this without realizing that they’re a filthy bigot? Are they really that clueless or do they just not care?

    Should we ask xtians before any and all decision no matter how small? Am I allowed to pour myself a glass of water? Am I allowed to take a gulp. What about second gulp? Should I eat dinner now?

    I won’t ask any xtians for permission to belatedly congratulate You on the rebus banner graphic!
