America’s Potty Wars

To pee or not to pee; that is the question… Or is it?

So much commotion about who can use the women’s restroom might lead one to believe that this is a real problem when in fact it is not. Most people that I know are not concerned about where transgenders are allowed to go to take a leak and where not. Quite frankly, if it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, acts like a duck and pees like a duck, I’m not going to look up anyone’s skirt to check, and I’m fairly certain that no one else is either. Just don’t wag your groove thing at me or you won’t need that operation.

But this is not about who pees where. This is about erasing all personal boundaries. It’s about promoting an ‘anything goes’ attitude that demonizes those who choose privacy over political correctness.

Repeat after me…. ‘We are all the same.’ Yes, the same. No sexual differences, no mental differences, no good, no bad, no ugly. A monotonous herd of indescribable sheep following the leader into the slaughter pen.

Like our Republican vs. Democrat political system, the choice should not be between subjecting oneself to a free-for-all in the women’s bathroom or being a gay-hating bigot. This is complete idiocy. And yet, the debate goes on, courts fill up, newspapers print the controversy, lawyers make money, and the world spins to the tune of ‘I Just Wanna Be Me.’ Meanwhile, back at the potty, we just want to feel safe while doing our thing in what should be our most private area. But noooooooo - can’t have that, now can we? At least not without the Potty Police. Just how low can the control grid reach? Lower than a boa’s belly as it swallows its prey?

Government control is insidious. It restricts our every movement. Like the electric fence strung around a pasture that doesn’t actually need to be hot because the animals are trained to stay away from it anyway after having experienced the shock. They and we are mentally conditioned to respect the fence line. And that fence line represents the boundaries inflicted by the manufactured need to accept government control over every aspect of our lives. We are being programmed to respect the control that those in ‘authority’ exert over us when we accept the false narratives set in front of us as real and valid. When we expend our energy in fighting the ridiculous fight over something so simple even a five-year-old could understand it, we are playing the game, and that game is called the Hegelian Dialectic – Problem; Reaction; Solution.

Problem: Women having their own bathroom in stores is unfair and discriminatory against the gay community.

Reaction: A huge ‘issue’ is raised regarding forcing store policy to allow men who identify as women to use the women’s bathroom. People become polarized over who should be allowed to pee next to Mom when she goes to town and shops at the nearest Target. There is outrage on both sides. Tempers flare, anger erupts, and ‘bigotry’ becomes the battle cry of the day.

Solution: The ‘gay’ issue is brought to the forefront and people are encouraged to accept that there are no boundaries, everyone is the same, and we choose which sex we are - chromosomes and genitalia have nothing to do with it. Just one big, sexless blob until we decide what to be. And those who choose to disagree will beg the government to intervene. After all, our privacy is at stake!

This appears to be why there is such a strong push to break into the women’s potty when no one would even notice anything odd about the gal next door if not for the five o’clock shadow. What business is it of the government’s to decide just who can pee next to whom? And why does it even want to? Why does a coyote eat chickens? Because that’s its nature. Governments seek control like ducks take to the water because that is their nature.

So, what is the real solution to the potty problem? The issue would logically appear to hover around multi-toilet bathrooms since single toilet bathrooms already provide privacy via a locked door. So, how about three bathrooms? ‘Male,’ ‘Female,’ and ‘Neutral.’ Problem solved. Easy. Simple. No boundaries are crossed, women and children can feel safe while urinating, and those who forgot to shave can use the third option.

No muss, no fuss, no government intervention flushing our rights down the toilet. Just let the people decide who they want as potty mates. The businesses will either accommodate or lose customers.

Unless, of course, an actual solution is not the real goal of the dispute...
