Why are there no urinals in Ladies Rooms? Are they trans-shaming? I think they are! Can we get to work putting a row of urinals in all women’s bathrooms? I don’t want to hear it would be too expensive! What’s the price of an early-stage transitioning man walking into a female locker room and not finding a urinal? We can’t be that hateful, can we? It’s only right, you know…C’mon…it’s 2016!!!!!–Dennis Miller
Of course every business needs to remodel their bathrooms. It’s not like the days of “White” and “Colored” Bathrooms! It’s 2016.
The Age of Big Brother. Where the Government mandate you allow Men dressed as Women into the Bathroom with no proof whatsoever otherwise you’re a “bigot”. It’s a “Civil Rights Issue” to allow Men dressed as Women into a Women’s Restroom so we can’t have them restricted to just the stalls ( I guess they have them since I’ve never been in one) so we must require then to install urinals and the plumbing to match. 🙂
Oh and we need to rename them also. Men’s and Women’s Bathrooms is discrimination against the New Civil Rights of our Transgendered Media-Darlings.
Orwell has a new language to teach all us “bigots” so that we don’t offend the Crybaby Generation with our multiple millenials old “bigotry”.
Some languages, such as English, do not have a gender neutral or third gender pronoun available, and this has been criticized, since in many instances, writers, speakers, etc. use “he/his” when referring to a generic individual in the third person. Also, the dichotomy of “he and she” in English does not leave room for other gender identities, which is a source of frustration to the transgender and gender queer communities.
So English itself is discriminatory and “bigoted” as a language in and of itself according to our fine folks (mind you there is no actual language that isn’t by this criteria).
Maybe we should just scrap it for…I don’t know… INGSOC, maybe . 🙂
Try asking: “What pronouns do you use?” or “Can you remind me what pronouns you use?” It can feel awkward at first, but it is not half as awkward as getting it wrong or making a hurtful assumption.
Now that’s conversation started right out of Emily Post. 🙂
When someone is referred to with the wrong pronoun, it can make them feel disrespected, invalidated, dismissed, alienated, or dysphoric (profound state of unease or dissatisfaction) (or, often, all of the above.)
I’m dysphoric about the New INGSOC. 🙂
It is a privilege to not have to worry about which pronoun someone is going to use for you based on how they perceive your gender. If you have this privilege, yet fail to respect someone else’s gender identity, it is not only disrespectful and hurtful, but also oppressive. (LGBT Resource Center)
So don’t be an evil, oppressive bore, be Politically Correct. 🙂
Yes, one day you may be threatened with prosecution by some liberal for refusing to refer to a transgender who believes she’s a ze so take a few minutes to study the Big Brother pamphlet so you don’t get “re-educated” by a red-hot, “oppressed” Liberal.
Your local Liberal Thought Police Regiment will thank you.
