As funny as the toilet is; fart jokes and that, I get what Emma’s blog post is about. It’s not really all just funny. There’s a human rights and basic human dignity thing here open for discussion. National Geographic is also talking about it in there 2017 editions.
As funny as the toilet is
It’s a peculiar thing to observe, because the last place I’d expect to get clocked is in a bathroom. Unless there’s an ambusher lurking to try and “grab ‘em by the pussy”. Personally I’m more concerned about this type of grabbin’ occurring in the meetings between a JP/MP/Lawyer and transgender person as required by the DIA to verify a NZ passport gender change.
There is something amusing I guess when one considers that separate bathroom advocates are calling for women to share facilities with dudes like these.
It’s disappointing but expected that this bathroom use issue seems to have been imported pretty much wholesale from the states, as if the development of the excretory systems in transgender people is a recent turn of events.
It's difficult to ignore that we are living in a time of increased fundamentalism in all corners of society.
It’s an odd thing to do because it takes more work. You have to estimate how many women are going to attend, in order to work out how many pink (not even kidding) loos you’re going to need.
I guess it's a diversion, but this clip from Upstart Crow made me laugh (from 10m:59s). :)
