Righteous Anger

This is one of the most righteous rants I've ever heard. "Spare me your lectures about goddamn bathrooms!"

For those who are science-fiction nerds, that reminded me of a line in Robert A. Heinlein's Friday. Regardless of what you think of that book (and it was problematic in  some respects), I've never forgotten his use of unisex bathrooms.

"Pointers and setters use the same plug."

I've used men's bathrooms on a few desperate occasions. I always figured a toilet is a toilet is a toilet. But I'm not transgender, I have several different kinds of privilege, and I don't have to worry about getting beaten up if I use the "wrong" bathroom.

That's why this legislation is needed.
