    I donít particularly care which bathroom you use, as long as you wash your hands when youíre done. I also donít particularly care if your company suffers a huge backlash for bowing to political correctness. And I donít go to Target stores much anymore, ever since a Meijer store opened up near me. So Targetís recent travails donít really concern me. Tough luck. Being ďwokeĒ might make you feel better about yourself, but it can cost you. Literally. .. {..snip..}

    Feminists are to blame for male Transgenders wanting to use the women's bathroom. Feminists have made being a woman the ultimate desire and being a man the most undesirable state. Women Are built up as smarter than men, wiser than men, stronger than men, and just plain greater than men in every way. To be a man in today's society simply means you are to be tolerated if you act more like women and not revert to your sinful masculinity. No wonder there are transgendered males, which account for the overwhelming majority of the transgendered. These men are trying to...

    Transgender people said Thursday they fear a South Carolina bill that would require them to use the public bathroom for their biological sex will stoke misguided fears and endorse restroom vigilantism, even if the bill ultimately dies as expected. Opponents told a Senate panel the unenforceable measure perpetuates myths against an already-ostracized community, while supporters contend itís about protecting the privacy and safety of women and children. [Ö] No vote was taken during the panelís second and final hearing. Itís not yet clear whether the full committee will consider the measure. But even if it manages to advance to the...

    Lies are born the moment someone thinks the truth is dangerous. Apparently, a good number of business and sports executives think the truth about North Carolina¬ís ¬ďbathroom bill¬Ē (HB2) is dangerous, that¬ís why they are lying about it. Well, perhaps I should be a bit more charitable: some may not be overtly lying about it, but they are expressing their disapproval without knowing what the bill actually does. On Monday Lt. Governor Dan Forest, who helped call the special session to pass HB2, called the executive in charge at one large protesting company and simply asked if him if he...

    In what is likely to become a common occurrence in the near future, 150 Missouri high school students walked out of class Monday due to a disagreement as to whether or not a transgender student who was born male should be allowed to use the girlsí locker room. From KMOV 4 St. Louis: **The walkout lasted for about two hours. Roughly 30-40 people showed support for senior Lila Perry, who wants to use the girlsí locker room during gym class.

The move comes during Boston's Pride Week, which celebrates the LGBT community and raises awareness of discrimination." USA Today explains the new bathrooms "can be used by anyone including individuals who may identify as transgender, caregivers helping someone of another gender and parents with small children."

In several US states, as well as in Canada, the law governing public toilets is now a divisive issue. On one side are transgender people, who assert their right to use whichever restrooms they chose - no matter what their biological gender. On the other, conservatives who say a relaxation of the rules could leave members of the public vulnerable to traumatic or inappropriate situations, or even sexual harassment....

    Officials with the city of Houston, Texas, who are defending a controversial ordinance that would allow men to use womenís restrooms now have demanded to see the sermons preached by several area pastors. The recent move came in a subpoena from the city to pastors for copies of their sermons and other communications in the cityís legal defense of a ďnon-discriminationĒ measure that allows ďgender-confusedĒ people to use public restrooms designated for the opposite sex. A lawsuit challenging Houstonís move alleges the city violated its own charter in its adoption of the Equal Rights Ordinance, which in May designated homosexuals...

    AKRON, Ohio -- Here's something that might send you dashing back to the washroom: Microbiologists at GOJO Industries and other institutions have discovered that a quarter of the soap in public restrooms is so contaminated that it leaves your hands filthier than before you washed them. In fact, some of the soap they tested contained so much fecal matter that you're almost better off washing your hands in the toilet after you flush it, said Charles P. Gerba, professor of microbiology in the University of Arizona's Department of Soil, Water and Environmental Science. GOJO, the company that invented Purell hand...

Smith (UAFS) early this month to reverse policy and allow a 38-year old anatomically male-student permant use of women's bathrooms on campus despite opposition from female students.The university made the reversal on "advice of counsel" after receiving a letter the DOJ sent in response to a complaint that a single, self proclaimed "transgender" student filed with the DOJ's Civil Rights Division. "Because of the stance we took, the individual filed a complaint with the Office of Civil Rights in the Department of Justice," Mark Horn...

    Democrat wants grants for women's restrooms in fire stationsBy Pete Kasperowicz - 12/26/11 10:50 AM ET Rep. Laura Richardson (D-Calif.) has proposed legislation that would let fire stations around the country apply for grants of up to $100,000 to build women's restrooms, showers and changing facilities. The Fairness in Restrooms Existing in Stations (FIRE Stations) Act, H.R. 3753, says these grants would help promote gender equity in fire houses. The findings of the legislation says most were built with a "single-gender workforce" in mind, that 50 percent of all fire departments do not have any women employees, and that women...

    While such parks normally are bustling with people - and have facilities to serve them - the relative seclusion appears to have emboldened some to do their business along trails and other areas where no Minnesotan would normally dare to squat. "People are taking it upon themselves to go out in the woods and relieve themselves, and without the presence of employees and others, they're not picking up after themselves," Konrad said. "People are also having a tendency not to pick up after their pets."
