North Carolina is in the process of watering down it’s “bathroom bill” that required transsexuals (everybody really) to use the restroom based on the sex designated on their birth certificate. Good for them. I think that is something each state should decide for itself along with a lot of other issues. Meanwhile Texas (my home state) is considering a similar measure. Good for us; for the same reason.
But while we’re at it, I would like to propose a different approach to solving this particular social/legal dilemma. My approach to this problem is to recognize that the world (meaning the left) has decided to move another objective truth (male/female) to a subjective question. (This seems to be a leftist inclination.) Approaching the problem from this reality, the solution is to come up with a new objective criteria that will do the trick (route everyone to the correct facility).
Granted, whatever solution you come up with will only work until the left manages to subjectivity that. But that’s an ongoing problem I have no idea how to solve. It’s like the old adage goes; you can’t fix stupid (or immorality).
So… back to my solution. I say get rid of male/female designations for restrooms (and other private facilities) all together. And replace it with a penis/non-penis designation being the only criteria to be considered in the determination. If you have a penis right here, right now… you use the penis facilities. No penis right here, right now? The non-penis facilities. Done!
We don’t care what’s on your birth certificate, what’s on your driver’s license, how you’re dressed, or what you “identify” as (male, female, or fiddler-crab). This is not a comment or judgment on how you identify, or what you’ve done about that identity, or plan to do about that identity. It’s simply an objective criterion to restore order and sanity. Penis here… non-penis there.
I know, I know… I can already hear all the “buts” followed by special circumstances from the left. So, let me address a few of the obvious ones to help make things clear.
I know this solution may add a little additional pressure to the trans-gendered community in that it requires a certain level of commitment (some more than others). But I think commitment is a good thing. Like the old adage goes. Piss or get off the pot… or step away from the pot… or… you know what I mean.
