I don’t go to the can to hang out, or be social. I go there to wash my hands and rid myself of biological waste.
Honestly we could dump the whole gender thing entirely and have men and women all doing their thing in the same tiled room. Unless it’s an old sports stadium with the trough (BTW I do love these for their pure efficiency, but this IS the only restroom configuration where you will likely see anybody’s private parts) you aren’t seeing shit, so who fucking cares?
Period, end of transmission.
Of course, there is always that “sexual predator using the same restroom as your kids” thing.
There are 78 registered sexual offenders within 5 miles of my house. Making it normal to see grown men walking into the same bathroom as little girls creates a target rich environment for them.
On the other hand, it also increases the chances that an innocent man will be accused of exposing themselves, or of looking at members of the opposite sex.
Bad news all around.
And as a NON-transgendered individual, it makes it socially and legally … problematic … for me to run into the women’s restroom or locker room if I hear my daughter screaming for help.
Because white male privilege, or something.
I love it, Weer’d, but you’re being too reasonable. It’s not the people who just want to use the john and get on with life who are making a fuss here, and if we insist on doing just that the SJWs will up the ante in some new and even more annoying way.
After all, last year we were all congratulating ourselves on how accommodating we were with the marriage thing instead of acting like the toothless rednecks they imagine us to be. I think of the bathroom kerfuffle as our reward for that.
“I go there to wash my hands and rid myself of biological waste.”
Um, I hope not in that order…
I really had trouble with that sentence, because sometimes I just go and wash my hands, sometimes both.
Honestly sometimes just one because my penis is REALLY clean, and I don’t pee on my hands 🙂
The bathroom kerfuffle is this month’s version of “Look! Squirrel!” in the election cycle, because the 20 trillion debt is off limits for discussion because debt-guilt is not equally divided on party lines and Bernie and Hillary can only make it worse.
