Mississippi continues to get more and more much deserved flack for passage of HB 1523, as reported by this piece in the Daily Kos. Do you suppose the legislators will wake up and smell the coffee when their revenue from corporate sources is threatened?I am somewhat dubious, but hopeful.
Planting Peace has put up some terrific billboards in Mississippi:
and in North Carolina:

The Funny or Die piece NAILED it. I hope that bill nails Mississippi ... in the WALLET.
Funny video. To see it on you tube, here's the link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqASSN5S2CI
I like the ending line. "Visit Mississippi. We're even worse than North Carolina."
The entire notion that a penis or a vagina is more "obscene" than a nose or an elbow is just more religiously created bullshit. As James Joyce once said of criticism of his Ulysses, "If my book's not fit to read, life's not fit to live."
Exceptionally good question, Donald. I wish I had an answer for you, and if I did, I'd bet that religion figured into it somehow!
When I was in Japan in 1956, the public restrooms were for both sexes. When I was in Germany in the '60s & '70s, the restroom attendants could be either men or women in either restroom. Then, in 1978 in Munich, I attended a confrerence, and the hotel had saunas. The women's sauna said "closed, use the men's sauna". I went in, and there were naked men and women sitting around and enjoying the steam together. We were in Helsinki, and my wife was in the women's sauna, and a guy walked in looking for his wife. No one paid any attention to him. What the hell is it about America?
A cartoon seen in the Philadelphia Gay News "explaining" North Carolina's nasty new law that supersedes Charlotte's and other localities' nondiscrimination ordinances, makes it a crime for trans people to use the appropriate public restroom, and forbids local minimum-wage laws:

Now THAT is a CLASSIC, Bertold!
