Lesbian Mayor Of Texas Town Rules That All Bathrooms Now Unisex

The Houston, TX mayor has apparently issued the edict that all public bathrooms are now unisex. In the ensuing debate among the comments, a commenter praised the decision as alleviating the anxiety of LGBT persons, yet this comes with increased discomfort for heterosexual users.

“The change is great news because not every person fits on the gender binary (nor does the gender/sex binary really exist) and the segregation of bathrooms is only perpetuating rape culture”

Hence, the issue appears to be that of equality. Perhaps an interpretation of the ruling handed down by the Supreme Court in their decision on gay marriage last summer, where Justice Kennedy provided the deciding ruling in his opinion that referenced the equality clause in the Fifth Amendment. With an issue of equal liberties at stake, I weighed in with the following comment.

“Ok. So, if I understand your rationale – because I’m not very smart – persons, who mentally and emotionally don’t fit their biological gender assignment, would be uncomfortable in the bathroom with others, who mentally and emotionally do fit their biological gender assignment, all of whom are the same biological gender assignment. Therefore, these persons, who mentally and emotionally don’t fit their biological gender assignment, would prefer and would be more comfortable using a bathroom where the others, who mentally and emotionally do fit their biological gender assignment, are of the opposite biological gender assignment. So, from this, I am to believe the issue of mixing biological gender assignment bathroom use is a matter of comfort level for those, who mentally and emotionally don’t fit their biological gender assignment. Right! So, did you ever consider that while you are so concerned about the comfort level of those, who mentally and emotionally don’t fit their biological gender assignment, you are willing to co-opt the comfort level of others, who mentally and emotionally do fit their biological gender assignment, and in doing so you believe that the rights of those, who mentally and emotionally don’t fit their biological gender assignment, supersedes the rights of the others, who mentally and emotionally do fit their biological gender assignment, all the while you are smiling about how equal you are making it for everyone?”

After having deciphered the LGBT understanding of equal, I believe the solution is to provide three bathrooms: one for men; a second for women; and a third for everyone else who wants to have a warped brand of equal. For the record, I do not have an issue with the LGBT lifestyle. However, I do take issue with those who abuse the equality clause of the Fifth Amendment. The equality in that clause is expressed as that which can be applied universally and not selectively, as many civil rights movements have now interpreted that clause to mean. In the end, if that is how you choose to pursue equality, then you can be equal together, just not my brand of equal.

That’s where I stand. If I haven’t offended you, then I haven’t tried hard enough.
