Oh, Duh Toilette
Harlotte Comes to Breakfast
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Tuesday, May 17, 2016. Our creative friend, Spider Harlotte is at the breakfast table this morning. She has prepared a lavish feast of luscious croissants for our enjoyment. I have prepared buckets of French coffees to add to the pleasure. Harlotte, like so many of us, is confused and disgusted with all the "toilet" talk. At one time our mothers used to warn us about "toilet" talk. Now it is all the rage. Please join us for breakfast. We are anxiously awaiting your arrival.
What's It All About
Thank you all for coming to the table this morning. I honestly have to tell you that I am confused about all this "toilet " talk. Everyone is talking about the right of transgenders to pick the toilet of their choice when the need calls. Even President Obama feels the "urge" to get in on the matter. If anyone is unsure about how far we have fallen from grace and common sense in this nation, just tune into the growing controversy about where and with whom we get to pee. For the sake of a minuscule few students and adults who self-identify as "transgender" the rest of us are going to have to bite the bullet and do "our thing" with people who normally wouldn't be using our bathrooms. I can say with total honesty that I will not and won't ever feel comfortable using the women's room with someone who feels female, but is not. I would not feel safe. I can only imagine what the nearly 55 million children in K-12 public schools will feel with regard to this new policy forced upon them by the government. Clearly, their privacy and safety is not a priority for the Obama administration. Let's hope it is for the schools who must assert themselves in the face of the government's threat to withhold funding if they refuse to comply.
Not a Constitutional Issue
Our Constitution does not offer protections for people who feel they were born into the wrong sex. Our Constitution does not guarantee sex change operations or instructions for cross dressing. It does provide for the protection and safety of all, but it does not demand that the majority of citizens forfeit their right to privacy and safety for the sake of a few. President Obama and Attorney General Loretta Lynch have no right to demand that our public schools open their bathrooms and locker rooms to transgenders. Failure to obey will cause the schools to lose funding. This sounds like blackmail to me. Apparently, politicians in Texas and other states have vowed to defy the government. These states insist that the students should use the facilities for the sex they were assigned at birth. Parents of transgender kids and adults are grateful for the actions of the government. The majority of citizens are not. Parents have every right to worry about the safety of their children. Adults share the same concern for themselves. Forcing this issue upon the nation is unconstitutional and irrational. It makes me wonder if this issue is really about transgenders at all. It feels like it is just another attempt from this lawless administration and the left to see just how far they can push us around. They enjoy the chaos that social issues like this bring. With chaos comes control, and control is the name of the game.
Let's be Rational
We don't have a lot of time to waste on this issue. We have far more pressing matters on the agenda. A simple solution to just make it go away is to construct, over a period of time, a single bathroom that can be used by either a male or a female. We don't have to force the majority of students or adults to deal with a loss of their privacy and safety. There is no question for me, that enforcement of this "open" bathroom policy will lead to trouble. Don't we have enough trouble already?
Oh, what a tangled web we weave
When first we dictate where to pee!
