Musings XI

Papers Please

There is an epic battle raging and it is called Bathroom Wars.  Conservatives are realizing they have lost the marriage equality fight and they are taking aim at transgender people,  in particular transgender women.  

There is legislation in a couple states that are trying to say only biological women can use women’s public and business restrooms.   So this means transgender women have to use men’s restrooms and the burly bearded transgender man has to use the women’s restroom.  

So will the state supply bathroom police for every public and private restroom?  Will everyone have to carry papers that show they are biologically female or male? 

The legislation seems to be aimed at transgender women and the safety of transgender women are ignored.   So if I God fobid go to Texas, I will have to carry a copy of my birth certificate and this may not be enough. 

Is there so many instances where transgender women have attacked and sexually attacked women in restrooms? I think it is more about blatant bigotry and hatred than about safety.  

Do the people of these states want to spend $ millions on bathroom police? 

Lunacy seems to be romping in the minds of conservatives.
