Gender Neutral Bathrooms > #MeToo Movement Concerns

When ordinary people wanted separate men's and women's bathrooms they were decried as homophobic/transphobic or just down right haters. A funny thing happened, a committed leftist for an instance saw things as a common sense individual.

MADISON, Wis. – Can a liberal move so far left that eventually she turns right?

That appears to be the case – kind of – in Madison, the Badger State’s bastion of anything-goes progressive ideas.

In January, Mary Jo Walters, far-left activist and independent candidate for U.S. Senate (because ultra-liberal Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Madison, could use the competition), filed a discrimination complaint against the Rape Crisis Center in Madison.

It turns out that not all liberal feminists want to share their public restroom with any Tom, Dick or Harry.

“Let me get right to it. I was shocked after listening to story after story from women who were raped by men (at the #MeTooMadison event),” she stated in an email. “Then I had to use the bathroom. I found signs on both doors (she included photos). Confused, I opened the door hoping no men were inside. I peed as fast as I could further creating anxiety and trauma. This is a privacy issue for women and men: bathrooms.”

But as with all good liberals the next step is to litigate the matter. Where of course common sense didn't prevail.

In her original complaint, filed with Madison’s Department of Civil Rights and the Madison Equal Opportunities Commission, Walters wrote that having to use a gender-neutral bathroom was “upsetting emotionally, seeing it was at a rape event.”

Madison is still 77 square miles of complete idiocy. But Ms Mary Jo Walters may want to stay in Madison and forgo Anchorage, AK.

On Tuesday, the Anchorage City Clerk made it official: Voters rejected Proposition 1, the citizen-initiated ballot proposal that would have required government-run facilities to maintain single-sex bathrooms and locker rooms, while allowing private businesses the right to decide their own privacy policies. The city certified the final tally of the voting, which ended on April 3, 2018, with “no” votes garnering 41,115 or 52.6 percent, to the “yes” votes of 36,993 or 47.4 percent.

In heralding the victory, LGBT activists portray the first rejection by voters of a so-called bathroom bill as representative of a change in public opinion. The Chicago Tribune reported that transgender activist Lillian Lennon pronounced the defeat of Proposition 1 not just “a victory for Anchorage, but a victory nationally,” adding “[t]ransgender discrimination is popping up everywhere, and this victory means that as a nation we can stand together against discrimination.”

The fight over safe spaces restroom continues. Slowly but surely separate restrooms are becoming a thing of the past.
