    People suck.
    Too many cisgender people suck  (certain TGG members not included in that group)
    And sadly, freaking SADLY, some trans people suck.
    Yeah... I had to look up the word "truscum."   I didn't like what I found.
    I was already in a foul mood...and then learned a new word.

    Did ya happen to see the story and video on the butch lesbian that was PHYSICALLY escorted OUT of a WOMEN'S bathroom by two idiot wannabe [mall] cops??   That one even got some airtime on a Young Turks youtube vid.   In another vid, they discussed a new ad that's been created - this one has a trans man in it, and addresses how bills like the one in NC would force him into a women's restroom.
    It's getting pretty ridiculous.

    "While the details of the situation are disturbing — particularly in light of various transgender “bathroom bills” being debated in North Carolina and beyond — similar episodes are neither rare nor new for women seen as being on the male end of the gender spectrum. And Toms’ experience is shining a light on how such confrontations can affect women on the receiving end — as well as how the growing national frenzy around bathroom use is emboldening citizens, more than ever, to become restroom gender vigilantes."  --

    "So too is the fact that Grace did so in protest against North Carolina's so-called bathroom law. Grace said she wanted to voice her opposition to what she considers North Carolina's "ridiculous law," requiring people to use public restrooms which correspond to the sex listed on their birth certificate or run the risk of criminal charges. Grace told reporters she wanted to make a point: Trans people will not live in fear."  --
    How easy is it to change the sex on your birth certificate?

    Really good article.  Let's just hope the conservatives don't learn anything from it..

    ​Not all children are gender fluid, bi-gender or genderless, and therefore no reason to teach [all] trans kids to use both bathrooms.  And as far as using both, I see only those who are gender fluid having reason to use both bathrooms.  Everyone else should be able to pick one or the other and stick with it.
    Until all hang-ups with who uses what bathroom, the conservatives come off their fear-mongering, and we can all just go to the bathroom whether gay, trans, male or female, we really shouldn't toss more confusion into the mix.  Nor should we try to convince [trans] children to be both male and female if that is not what they are.  Not all trans people want to present as one gender and maintain another.

    It's amazing how countries that have had a history of much stricter, much more severe laws against homosexuality and transsexuality, have progressed in the various areas of equal rights better, faster and more strictly than the Almighty Great United States of America - a country that has the nerve to try to address the human rights issues in other  countries.
    Go figure...
    You GO, O' Canada!!

    "The moves ... prompted an immediate backlash from conservatives who disparaged the measures as government overreach."
    Yeah...these people come from the same stock that would still be denying black people equal rights had it not been for the government.  But surprisingly, some of them seem to think the two situations are completely different, and are greatly offended when we have the nerve to point out the parallel to them.
    Somehow, we need to learn that what's right for one American, does not mean it right for all Americans....
    Yeah.  Right.

    "“Maybe the issue is really not bathrooms at all,” she said. “Maybe because now gay men and lesbians can get married, and they’re no longer the whipping boys and whipping girls in this country, now maybe they’re trying to rile up people against transgender people. And it’s not right, and it’s not fair.”"  --

    So to appease a few homo-/transphobic, far right, ultra conservative bigots... ALL of Texas' children will suffer yet another blow to their already floundering educational system.
    Wow.  it would be laughable if it wasn't so freakin' sad.  Talk about cuttin' yer nose off to spite your ugly mug!!

    Note:  This article was drastically re-vamped in the nine or ten hours following the OP.  As a result this reply appears somewhat out in left field.  So no, I haven't lost it, and you're not missing something! LOL

    That should REALLY  chap ol' Gov. Pat McCrory in the diaper...means his new bill isn't worth the paper it's written on.  Least ways, not the part bathrooms in schools.

    "Interestingly, 85 percent of those polled report that they don't have a family member or close friend that is transgender. In contrast, 58 percent said they have a family member or close friend who is gay."  --

    "Moore has been tossed once before from the office of chief justice. Thirteen years ago he refused to abide by a federal judge's order to remove a Ten Commandments monument Moore had erected in the rotunda of the state judicial building, resulting in judicial ethics charges and his removal by the Court of Judiciary."

    I've always liked Behind Blue Eyes.  I don't have blue eyes either, but replace "blue" with "brown" and the song just seems like it was written just for me and my situation.
