Skip to comments.Deval Patrick signs 'bathroom bill', sets off 'firestorm'
Posted on 02/18/2011 7:32:14 AM PST by LostInBayport
In a move blasted by opponents as an end run around lawmakers, Gov. Deval Patrick yesterday quietly signed a controversial transgender rights executive order, called the bathroom bill by critics, making it illegal to discriminate against state workers on the basis of gender identity.
This is going to set off a firestorm, and its certainly something the governor should have given us a heads up on, said House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones (R-North Reading).
Patrick signed the changes with no announcement. The measure was a major issue during Patricks tough re-election battle last year.
The executive order, unlike a similar bill that died in the Legislature over the past three years, needs no legislative approval and only applies to jobs, programs and services within state government.

Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Patrick, and a host of others are not governing in a sane manner. At all.
I frankly find it shocking. It's like a gotterdammerung. Let's do everything we can to destroy society.
The Commonwealth of Massivetwoshits. Murderers, pimps and gay child molesters run the government and tell people how to live. Soon to be coming to a state near you if we don’t stop these bstrds in 2012.

This clearly shows sick and disordered minds. There are only 2 sexes, male and female. DNA recognizes no more than 2 no matter what a persons sickness tells them.
It would seem that this "Governor" has learned from Obama and will force his will on others by "Orders" instead of governing. He should remember that he governs only by the will of the people.
Interestingly enough the people of Massachusetts prefer that kind.
Step one, shemale uses the "ladies" restroom. Step two, female state employee takes maximum exception and files a sexual harassment / hostile work environment suit. Step three, all female employees join in. Step four, ladies get a jackpot.
BTW, what exactly do you call the restroom now? What kind of signage must be used so as to not offend the various categories of potty preference? I think "sitters" and "standees" would work.
And as to all those laws that set requirements for the room formerly known as the ladies room, must they be applied equally? For example, I guess the room formerly known as the mens room must now have a couch. I guess the safest thing is to equip them identically.
What about someone who regards "him"self as female, still has the male equipment and prefers to stand - can s/he demand a urinal be installed in the room formerly known as the ladies room if that is his/her preferred place and method of waste elimination?
And what the Sam Hill is the definition of "reasonable accommodation" for something so patently unreasonable???
He’ll get away with it until some Moms use restrooms in a government building and see a man in there. Sounds great on paper until they meet a man with nicer lipstick than they have on.
He loves to pack his room mates crap
He holds pink poodles on this lap
And when he votes he’s a democrat
He’s a sick sick fag!
Sung to the tune of “It’s a small small world”
In Provincetown, MA, where I have been going every year since 1977, the public bathrooms are often labeled "either" and "or."
It isn't sane or insane. It is just autocratic despotism of the ruling class. Like the thugs who run many middle eastern states.
Once again,I’d like to thank the Ma. GOP for nominating such a superb candidate to run against Deval this past November....

Why not just pass building codes that require three types of restrooms? One for males. One for females. And one for perverts.
That is not exactly true all of the time. Some people are born with an Intersex condition.
It’s not a normal condition. DNA will never read “sexless”.
