“If you were born a man, then you are obliged to use the males’ restroom,” Tomes told the Tribune on Christmas Eve.

Haters are gonna hate, but isn’t this backwards? Wouldn’t it be more “weird” for someone who’s dressed as a female walking into a men’s room, which is what he’s proposing, than having someone who identifies and dresses as a male from using the men’s room?

The misdemeanor charge wouldn’t apply to students, juveniles, or facilities in private residences.

Whew! Dodged a bullet there. Because I have gender-specific bathrooms all over my house. Don’t you?

So, is this idiot gonna be checking folks as they enter bathrooms?
When I read stories like this it usually turns out that the author of legislation like this has serious stuff in their closet they don’t want to come out in public.

That’s because you don’t realize that going through all the trouble to come to terms with your gender identity, all the heart ache and lost friends and family that disown you–it’s all just a ruse to get into women’s bathrooms.

So…students and “juveniles” can visit each other’s bathrooms?
And thank the Maker that this “lawmaker” derp factory jerk isn’t gonna be investigating all the homes in Indiana.

And people will still actually vote for idiots like this guy thinking he is a reasonable and sane individual qualified to write laws.

This will also send RWNs into a frenzy. The president is going to issue an Executive Order ahead of the State of The Union address about gun control. No details yet, but it would attempt to prevent even more gun deaths.

So at every bathroom, there will be someone not only checking everyone’s genitals, but checking to see if they’ve had surgery to change said genitals? Yep, that definitely sounds like a critical use of state power!

cue Sen Jones to be indicted for some sex crime or found to be living a deviant lifestyle in 3…2…1…

Somehow, it’s always those loudmouth jerks who are most interested in judging everyone else who end up having skeletons in their own closet.
