Bathroom advice for LGBT people

If you have a penis, use the men’s room.

If you look like a man, but don’t have a penis, use the men’s room, but please don’t use the urinal.

If you look like a woman, and don’t have a penis, use the woman’s room.

News you can use, from Lion of the Blogosphere.

And what if you look like “Pat,” the character from the Saturday Night Live skit who no one could tell what sex he or she was?

For starters, as I already stated above, if you have a penis, you should use the men’s room.

If you are just a dyke or butch type of woman, they look unfeminine but they don’t look like men. Use the woman’s room.

If you are on the edge where it’s not entirely clear (an edge that’s pretty rare), use the men’s room because men don’t fear being raped by masculine-looking women.

  3. What if you look like a woman and attracted to woman but have a penis? Can you use the woman’s room? Are women and girls suppose to just accept that?

    • No, I said that if you have a penis you should use the men’s room.

      • Right, now I see. This is actually pretty good compromise. I could live with it!

    • I’m living in Seattle at the moment, and I already have to ask: what is a man; what is a woman.
      It’s not an existential philosophical question. It’s Pat.

      Protip: The trans women around here put in a whole lot more effort into the “being” and “looking” like a woman… so be careful out there.

      When I lived in the Netherlands and Germany I was startled that public pools had integrated changing rooms and bathrooms for men and women. If one desired privacy, one could use one of the changing booths but anybody could still see the feet and legs of all the men and women, boys and girls. Maybe Europeans are either stronger minded or better behaved… On college campuses there the little darlings aren’t shrieking about dangerous boys and rape culture either. Of course all this will change… The Diversity Dividend from all the non-European newcomers will shock and shame the locals out of their innocent little garden of eden.

      • “I’m living in Seattle at the moment, and I already have to ask: what is a man; what is a woman.”

        Whenever this White man visits the Progratardian Whiteopias of Seattle and Portland, OR, I use women’s restrooms when it’s convenient for me, with impunity. So far no one has chastised me, but when they do I will without hesitation tell them I identify as a woman, and go about my business. If they protest, I’ll bellow: “Are you a cisgendered homophobe!?” What comeback could they possibly have to that?

        Pro tip: I look like an off-duty cop — people ask me all the time if I’m a cop. Hilarity.

    Correction, to make this not retarded:

    “If you’re a woman, but get mistaken for being a man, use the ladies’ room, but don’t throw a fit if someone asks what your sex is.”

    • People who are biologically women but look like men should use the men’s room. The men won’t complain. They won’t even know. Solves a lot of problems. And even if they notice, men don’t fear being raped by girly men.

      • In all seriousness, which women are so masculine that they actually look like men? At most, they’re almost always a little butch. Added to that, that sort of fudge is the kind of thing that male trannies jump on and say that hey! Gender is fluid! Let men into the women’s restrooms!

        There are plenty of estrogen-deficient bull dykes who look exactly like men. Some of them could pass for coal miners or nfl players.

  7. Ironically, when Phyllis Schlafly was fighting against the ERA in the 1970’s she mentioned that one of the reasons you couldn’t have a strict equality on the basis of gender was because if you did you wouldn’t be able to keep men out of women’s bathrooms. People at the time said that if she didn’t stop talking like this she wouldn’t be taken seriously. However, what she feared happened. And it didn’t even take ERA to make it happen. There is no policy so absurd that the cultural Left will not eventually support it. Look for polygamy, incest, and lowering the age of consent within the next few decades. This is why I’m a social conservative. To those who say “I want no part of social crusades of either the left or the right,” realize that you won’t have a choice but to take sides on these issues. And as always, it is the LEFT that brings them up, not the right. And this is one reason why I don’t trust Donald Trump. I expect that on new social issues he’ll go with elite opinion – i.e. whatever cultural liberals support next.

    • “This is why I’m a social conservative. To those who say “I want no part of social crusades of either the left or the right,” realize that you won’t have a choice but to take sides on these issues.”

      While I am sympathetic to this line of thinking, it’s whistling past the graveyard. The Culture War is over, and the Left has won in a complete and utter rout, and goes on from victory to victory with ever increasing speed.

      “And this is one reason why I don’t trust Donald Trump. I expect that on new social issues he’ll go with elite opinion – i.e. whatever cultural liberals support next.”

      And what Republican Incorporated President has ever done a thing about slowing the cultural train wreck? None can, none will. If a Cruz or Rubio is elected, there will be some lip service about abortion, and nothing else will change.

      You need to understand that to stop the cultural wreckage you have to displace the current elites and the current massive top-heavy wealth structure. The only candidate even suggesting this is a problem is Trump. (Ok, Sanders gives it lip service, but he’s 100% on board the cultural wreckage train, and in fact he’d support it with even more government dollars.) Trump is the only hope for starting to correct the wealth imbalance that has been building since the 1970s, because the only way to correct this is via trade policy and nobody but Trump even HAS a trade policy other than “dur, free trade fer allz!”

      Also, immigration helps the culture wreckers because it destroys cohesion. Importing “natural social conservatives” is a mug’s game, because they are quickly pozzed by our sick culture. In fact, they have no mental resistance to it whatsoever.

      A social conservative who understood that (1) the GOP is utterly and hopelessly corrupt and (2) that social change starts with economic change would know that the only choice is Trump.

      • that social change starts with economic change would know that the only choice is Trump.

        Indeed, many deep Catholic/Christian theologians have made the point that the Church/society has a responsibility to create the material circumstances in which virtue can emerge.

        As an example, it is guaranteed that if the middle class became wealthy and vibrant again then single income households would become much more common. Large numbers of women would choose to stay home and raise families. Nothing could be more beneficial or restorative of our culture over the long term than that.

        March 2, 2016 at 1:10 pm

      • I agree with Peterike and Andrew that economic problems exacerbate social decline. However, social decline can also occur during good economic times. Economics is not as directly related to social issues as many assume. It is more related to ideas.

        I find it interesting that neither of you here say that America needs a new kind of social conservatism or that the socon movement needs to take different steps to win over the American people. Andrew seems to think it’s all about economics. Peterike says first that the cultural Left has won – it’s over (presumably forever?) And then says that we need to change the elites to change the culture. The truth is that no political victory is ever permanent, so social conservatives can never be totally defeated. And influence between the people and the elites goes both ways. Conservatives have tended to act as if the people are simply passive recipients of what the elites dish out to them. This isn’t the case. And it also gets ordinary people off the hook. They are never held accountable for anything. I wonder how much of the moral decline of the past 40-50 years is due to the fact that the American people know that no one will ever criticize them from the right – all decline is blamed on someone else. When I was a young woman in the 1980’s I noticed that you could read 20 years of conservative literature – from the mid-1960’s to the late 1980’s – and never come across the idea that anything that went wrong with America during this period was the fault of the American people. It always struck me as odd since conservatives were the ones who supposedly specialized in personal responsibility.

    • Another great example of how the slippery slope, which liberals are always mocking as a “fallacy,” is actually valid. If someone objects to policy X on the grounds that it will lead to undesirable result Y, the left haughtily snorts “don’t be ridiculous, Y will never happen,” thus implicitly agreeing that Y is undesirable. Years later, Y happens, proving the objectors right–but by then, liberal opinion has changed to the point that having a problem with Y makes you an evil, hate-filled bigot.

      I don’t think the left will push for lowering ages of consent. They’re very hung up on the powerful exploiting the weak. On left-wing fora where I lurk, people who celebrate all manner of other perversity suddenly start foaming at the mouth with rage when the topic of pedophilia comes up. Incest and polygamy, yes, it’s already starting.

      Hermes

      March 2, 2016 at 4:04 pm

      • That’s easy to think because it seems so crazy that dominate liberal opinion could ever support something as perverse as pedophilia, but then imagine in 1972 you asked George McGovern about gay marriage?

        The battlefield prep has already started. Salon ran a story a few months ago about a pedo who keeps it in his pants. He wants sympathy for his sacrifice of course. Fast forward a few years, and what’s wrong with pedo’s having kid sex dolls or watching porn that’s computer generated? No victims, no one is hurt…

        Then a generation later, it’s the next civil rights frontier. Children are sexual beings and should have the right to consent. They’re not slaves after all…

        They’re not stopping until we’re all grateful that the Muslims come and behead everyone.

    • MaryK — Since you mentioned Phyllis Schlafly, you should be aware that she endorsed Trump. And this report on immigration by her organization explains why a religious social conservative should support Trump over Cruz.

      • Yes, I am aware that Schlafly supports Trump, as do a number of famous social conservatives of the old guard in the movement. I chalk up some of this to weariness from decades of fighting and primarily losing in the cultural wars. People like Buchanan and Schlafly are really too old to start over. They don’t want to admit that socons have made many mistakes over the years and need to rethink how to win over the American people. Many just want to “win” any way they can. Imagining that they will get Trump to sign on to a socially conservative agenda (or even have any influence on him on social issues) is how they justify supporting someone who comes from the Manhattan business elite.

        They can do whatever they think is best. But I’m still not voting for Trump. I wouldn’t care if the 12 Apostles returned to earth and endorsed him. It would take a direct order from God to make me support Donald Trump. (Otis, sorry for the inclusion of religion here!)

  8. Maybe instead of designating the bathrooms as “men’s” and “women’s” they should just draw diagrams of the relevant parts of human anatomy on the doors?

    One thing I have a mild pet peeve about are restrooms in public places that are just rooms with a single toilet and sink and a door that locks, which are still labelled “men’s” and “women’s”. There is no reason why all of these couldn’t be unisex.

  9. This silliness is on feminists who are apparently too stupid to protect their own spaces. A few feminists have figured it out, but the rest just try to attack the common-sense feminists.

    This is a women’s issue. If men try to be chivalrous and keep men out of the women’s room, they’ll just be attacked by politically correct women.

  10. The latest poll in Oklahoma before Super Tuesday showed:
    Trump: 34%
    Rubio: 21%
    Cruz: 18%

    The election results:
    Trump: 28%
    Rubio: 26%
    Cruz: 34%

    Cruz mysteriously got bumped up almost 20% overnight? I smell rot.

  15. “…men don’t fear being raped by masculine-looking women.”

    I’d be more worried about the masculine women’s safety and comfort. Even with the added testosterone of the masculine women, it’s hard to overstate just how much stronger men are than women.

  16. On the Berkeley campus there’s a sort of Gothic-looking building called Moses Hall where the men’s restroom is on the ground floor and the women’s is up a long flight of stairs. Next to the men’s is some kind of workshop where aspiring teachers concoct strategies for reaching urban youth. About 10 years ago, the women who use that workshop colonized the men’s restroom, taping up signs announcing that men now had to ask permission before entering. Just more evidence of how insane the millennials are. I have absolutely no respect for millennial women.

  19. Male-to-femaie transgenders should be allowed to use the ladies’ room precisely because there are no urinals. They’ll have to use the stalls irrespective of their plumbing, so long as they sit to pee, which I am sure they have always been inclined to do. Female-to-male transgenders should be allowed to use the men’s room, too. They can’t use the urinals, and therefore must use the stalls, although they also will sit to pee, as they have no choice. So long as they do their business in the stalls, who would know and who would care?
