It’s Raining Men…Or Is It?

In news that could only come out of the weirdest state in America, there is a bill going through the California Assembly that would punish people who don’t use a transgendered person’s “preferred name or pronouns” in certain circumstances related to public health, retirement, or housing. The punishment? A fine of up to $1000 and up to 1 year in jail.

And people wonder why people call California the land of fruits and nuts?

All kidding aside, imagine having to defend yourself in court against a person Aerosmith sung about. Get a sympathetic (or simply pathetic) jury and that dude who looks like a lady could win, meaning you would get punished for not knowing whether he/she was a dude or a lady. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is Kafka-esque absurdity that makes Naked Lunch look like the evening news. On second thought, the news is getting just as bad. Nevermind.

If you didn’t catch my previous blog post about gender, let me give you the Reader’s Digest Condensed Version: there are only two genders. If anyone tells you otherwise, they are lying, have an agenda, or are utterly illiterate regarding science. Or a Leftist, which covers all three scenarios.

As someone whose last name has been misspelled more times than Tweets that confuse “your” and “you’re,” I can see where the supporters of the bill are coming from. Getting called the wrong name or being called the wrong gender can be frustrating. Having said that, there needs to be some common sense applied here. Granted, it’s California, so common sense may be a foreign concept, but someone has to try. So, here goes.

If you are a man who wants to be referred to as a woman and use feminine pronouns/names, then look the part. Ditto for you women who want to be referred to as men and use masculine pronouns/names. And as far as you “gender fluid” types are concerned, pick a gender and stick with it for more than 5 seconds. If you run into someone who doesn’t respect your wishes, so what? Your solution (if you can even call it that) will make it harder to be accepted by society at large which, in turn, sets back your movement by decades. There are going to be jerks everywhere you go. Making it illegal to be a jerk because they “misgender” you won’t make the jerks go away.

Here’s an idea. Try toughening up. If you base your entire self-worth on whether someone addresses you by the gender you prefer, real life is going to kick your ass. The best way to handle jerks is to treat them better than they would treat you. Not only will you look like the mature one, but if will leave them with little or nothing to say in response. Heck, you might even be able to break down a barrier or two in the process.

Unless you want to punish people for “wrongthink”, then your solution is the only one you’ll accept. Fine, but don’t be surprised if someone else gets smart and challenges you to a DNA test to see what gender you are. All the makeup or butch haircuts in the world won’t mean a thing next to hard scientific data.

“The Party of Science” indeed…

Bathroom Mania 2

President Trump has reversed the transgender bathroom order imposed by President Obama. This has caused hysteria on the Left and more crying about non-existent rights. And using really bad comparisons in an attempt to justify their agenda.

You don’t have the right to use whatever restroom/bathroom you feel like using at the time you need to go. That isn’t a right. Society has rules in place to protect others privacy. Your rights end when they come into conflict with others.

Public restrooms are one of four types, depending on the space available to the facility that built them:

Men – these restrooms are for Males.
Women – these restrooms are for Females.
Unisex – these restrooms are for anyone, one at a time.
Family – these restrooms are for family use, usually a parent with                              young children in tow.

Biologically speaking there are only two genders for the human species. Male, which is identified by having an XY chromosome pair. And Female, which is identified by having an XX chromosome pair. Any other combination is a genetic anomaly and mutation. Science agrees with Nature and Nature’s God. Gender is binary, there are only two sexes and there is no escaping it.

No matter what clothes one wears. No matter how much makeup one uses or doesn’t use. No matter what kinds of drugs and hormones one takes. No matter how many mutilation surgeries one undergoes. You cannot change nature. Male will still be identified as XY and female will be identified as XX in a simple blood testing. Something that has been done during the Olympic games to prove gender and test for steroid use.

Most places that offer public restrooms will only have the two basic types available. One for each gender. Use one of them and don’t make a mountain out of the mole hill. Just like everyone did before Obama was President.

But please don’t try to compare public restrooms to our home bathrooms. They are very different. A home bathroom is indeed a “unisex” location. But just like the public restroom variety, it has a locked door and only one person is using it at a time. You wouldn’t let your daughter or wife use the bathroom with another male in the household, let alone someone who isn’t part of the family. That doesn’t happen. No parent or spouse says that is OK.

The same thing applies to outdoor port-a-johns. These are everywhere at outdoor events that need additional restroom facilities due to large crowds. Only one person is in these little plastic restrooms at a time. There would be all kinds of questions raised if two people entered one.

But with most public restrooms, there are groups of people in them at any given time. Only a small thin stall door separates you from the crowd. This is why there is strong opposition to allowing anyone to use any restroom on demand.

There are predators who have taken advantage of the Obama order that has been rescinded. This isn’t to punish anyone, but to protect the majority.
