It'd be a pain to use in the woods. You have to carry it with you, plus TP, plus something to clean it. Or not clean it. Which... Ew.

That shouldn't even be an option.  :smileshake:

Oh yeah, that thing would be so unsanitary, altogether!  :bleh: Anyway, why are we discussing this and not the topic at hand? Lol.

I love Libby Anne's article (the one linked to in the original post) and her blog, her blog is great, too. I read the article not too long after she posted it. She really nails it when she goes onto saying that the people who are opposing transgender peoples' bathroom rights generally don't actually care in the least bit about the safety of women and children.

Very much this. It's the same as the conservatives who add ridiculous restrictions to abortion clinics under the guide of "increasing women's safety" instead of the actual purpose, which is forcing them to close.

I believe in equal preferred squared measurement for each genders restrooms.
You don't want to make men wait anyway, they'll do it in the sink, or anywhere.
Why aren't more woman making use of these things anyway?



TBH, I don't even want to stand up to go. Why would I want to give up privacy and checking my phone? (Yes, I get on my phone, while peeing. LOL. My attention span is that small... No... Really, it came about from being the best opportunity to check my phone at work, and it has become a habit for me no matter when or where I'm going >.<)

There's nothing great about using urinal except that it's quick.  You don't want to spend any more time in a men's bathroom than you have to, anyway.   Now peeing off the back porch at night, that's a special experience.

 :thumbsup: Entertaining rant.

The hateful dingbats at AFA aren't just organizing a boycott, though. They're sending brave Christian men to use the women's facilities at Target stores to "test" Target's policies.  "Conservative Group 'Testing' Target By Sending Men To Women's Bathrooms" | TPM LiveWire

Yeah, I've seen that as well and, considering they're most likely also Republicans, they will authentically be the most predatory people in the restroom.

He sounds super camp. I need to hear more rednecks to see if they all sound so camp.
