Liberal bat-shit lunacy has come to this.
A leading North Carolina newspaper issued an editorial last week telling girls to attempt “overcoming discomfort” at the sight of “male genitalia,” should transgender bathroom laws be enacted.
In a defense of Obama’s order compelling schools to allow access to restrooms on the basis of gender identity, the Charlotte Observer editorial board compared the discomfort of school-aged girls seeing male genitalia in locker rooms to the discomfort of white people being around black people in post-segregation America.
“This is what the Obama administration nudged the rest of the country toward Friday,” the editorial said. “Yes, the thought of male genitalia in girls’ locker rooms — and vice versa — might be distressing to some. But the battle for equality has always been in part about overcoming discomfort — with blacks sharing facilities, with gays sharing marriage — then realizing it was not nearly so awful as some people imagined.”
The comparison to ‘post-segregation America’ is grotesque. Clarence Henderson, a civil rights activist who participated in the diner lunch counter sit-ins in the 1960s takes exception to that:
“Let us be clear: HB2 cannot be compared to the injustice of Jim Crow,” Mr. Henderson wrote. “In fact, it is insulting to liken African Americans’ struggle for equality in America to the liberals’ attempt to alter society’s accepted norms.” ….”there’s no comparison between the suffering of black Americans and the transgender community.”
These advocates for public indecency won’t do the common sense thing like provide unisex, single-stall restrooms. That would make the LGBT fruitcakes feel excluded and uncomfortable, and we can’t have that.
By the way: former Charlotte LGBT Chamber of Commerce president Chad Sevearance-Turner, a leading proponent of transgender bathroom access in the state is also a convicted sex offender. Go figure.
Here’s an idea: Let the assholes who wrote that editorial expose their own children to the deranged shitbags who want to use a public restroom that coincides with their ‘gender identity’, and see how that works out.
