Holy shit, it's Nice Times AGAIN! There is a lot of bad stuff happening, for sure. But Gavin Grimm and the rest of the kids in the Fourth Circuit can pee where they like in school now because yet another federal court just ruled that discrimination against trans people
You're right, I didn't know much about this case and was making a general observation.
I think there are assholes in every group. I see non-handicapped people park across two spaces quite often, usually young white men with expensive sports cars, but sometimes young white men with expensive pickup trucks as well. A while ago I lived in a large block of studio apartments where every tenant had ONE assigned parking space, and my neighbor's boyfriend parked his brand-new, heavily-accessorized pickup truck across THREE parking spaces because he didn't want anyone to ding it. When I complained to management, he acted totally shocked at the idea that he had maybe inconvenienced people. His sense of entitlement was gargantuan. This same guy would show up at his girlfriend's apartment at 2 am and lock his pickup truck with the remote, which honked the horn loudly about 1 foot from the open windows of half a dozen sleeping tenants, and he was similarly shocked at the idea that anyone would find this intrusive. I think maybe he was clinically brain dead.
In general, wholly agree. Eventually the 'wrong reasons' become, 'Oh, that's the way we've always done it,' and nobody really thinks about it any more. I'll take progress any way I can get it.
I had always wanted to be admitted to the Wonkette Seekrit Chatcave for the sheer cachet of it all, but now -- eew.
In the "our shit is not their shit" category: I asked my kid if anyone he knew was ever teased for wearing glasses and he looked at me like I had two heads and wondered why that is even something that would occur to anybody to tease someone about.
Most of these Dunning-Kruger Muricans have been excreting next to trans people in blissful ignorance for years.
If you see hair clippings and hair dye ... it's Bourne!
This was an actual propaganda campaign in the South in the run-up to the Civil War, to make sure the upcoming Confederacy could fill the ranks of its armies.
I prefer jackanapes.
Nine kids and a substitute teacher who worked instead of retiring so she could keep her heath insurance, as her husband has pulmonary fibrosis.
Probably the best example of producing a $75 haircut on the fly -- because Bourne ALSO went to hair stylist college! Must watch again.
Most egregious examples is when a guy uses a Bowie knife and comes out looking like he just exited a high-end salon.
Too much work. Grease up your DA and go. https://uploads.disquscdn.c...
Five Dollar Feminist,
This is great news. Hopefully the courts will also rule that discrimination against gay people and refusing to bake a cake for a same sex couple is also sex discrimination.
I don't really care who pees in the stall next to me. What I would like to see is a sign on the doors of the handicapped stalls that says "Reserved for handicapped persons or parents with infants and small children only. Please don't use this stall if you are an able-bodied adult asshole suffering from White Entitlement Syndrome. $500 fine for violations."
AND I would also like a law passed that requires large shopping malls to have a handicapped-accessible public bathroom every 75 or 100 yards, instead of only one or two on each floor, each about a mile away and down a long corridor from wherever I happen to be when I need one. Why do they hide them?
It's what despots love to do.
He only wants the flow of information to be one way. From the open sewer he calls a mouth and never back.
