Elie Mystal: I, For One, Welcome Our New Toilet Overlords — ATL
…On Monday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio signed an executive order allowing city workers to use bathrooms “based on their gender identity, regardless of their anatomy.”
Just another thing for repressed white people and people over the age of 50 to get pissed off about. Yes, the culture is changing. No, this isn’t your grand-pappy’s America. I’m sure Ronald Reagan never so much as farted in the Oval Office when a “lady-Congressman” was in the room. But things change. This is changing. O brave new toilet, that has such respect in’t.
There are two points worth making in regards to legalized gender non-specific bathrooms: people deal with it all the time, and it’s not even a little bit sexy.
