UPDATE: El 26 de mayo de 2016/26 May 2016: Hola. Just wanted to update this: As of this writing, eleven US states have filed a lawsuit opposing Obama’s “order” that transgender students be allowed to use the bathroom that matches their gender identify in US public schools. Mr “I’ve Evolved” Obama got involved in this because it’s an election year and he wants more campaign donation$ from the gullible GLBTQ community (and I have no doubt the donations will flow in), and he wants people to vote for corporate parasites of the undemocratic Democratic Party especially the presumed nominee (Ms Clinton) of that corrupt party. Well, Fort Worth Texas is one place that is especially pissed-off over this transgender toilet thing. I read this quote: “Many, though, admitted that they felt that change on issues like same-sex marriage had happened too fast and was against their beliefs.” Well, that’s often the case with bigots. Happened top fast? You mean, happened at all. It could have taken another 50 years and you’d still be saying it “happened too fast.” And it’s against your beliefs? Well that’s your problem. If you weren’t a prejudiced bigot it wouldn’t be against your beliefs, pendejo. The bigots say that “allowing transgenders to choose their toilet could lead to women and children being attacked because they fear that men could pose as transgenders and use legal protections as a cover.” I swear, you bigots are something else! You’re constantly living in fear of some imaginary predator. Afraid of your own shadow. I have no patience for you. Get out of my face! Don’t the bathrooms have locked stalls and partitions between urinals in redneck and prejudiced Texas? If so, what’s the problem? There’s little chance of interaction between people. And with the bathrooms I’ve been in, people don’t make eye contact with others in bathrooms. It’s not a lounge. The bigots are planning to fight la casa blanca/the white house on this. I don’t think they’ll get too far because the inJustice Department (that’s usually what it is) is supporting the Obama regime on this. You know, it’s just so comforting to me that GLBTQs can now live anywhere and we are so accepted anywhere and there’s just so much luv for us, and we are “mainstream.” It just warms mi corazón/my heart when I think about it.

Hola a todos. A survey of 96,000 people — that’s quite a lot of people — in fifty-three member states of the United Nations has revealed that two-thirds of adults would not approve of their child revealing that they were gay or lesbian and in love with someone of the same gender. Really? But we’ve been told over and over that “Gay is now mainstream and gay people can live anywhere..” I’ve challenged that ludicrous statement repeatedly here on pink barrio. Gay people might be able to live anywhere in the closet but even that’s questionable, and I see nothing but heteronormative programming — him holding hands and making out with her (ugh) — on the corporate media television networks that I monitor. And the current heated controversy in the US over transgender access to public bathrooms shows that’s GLBTQs cannot at all live anywhere openly and honestly.
The International Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association conducted that survey. The survey overall found that there are “deeply entrenched heteronormative concepts of sexual orientation and gender identity.” Really? Who would have guessed that? From what we GLBTQs have been told, I’ve been under the distinct impression that GLBTQs are warmly and lovingly accepted anywhere now. “We’re mainstream.” Haven’t you come away with the same impression? [sarcasm intended]. You can read more about this survey in the UK Guardian.
So, let this put to rest the delusional wishful-thinking/lie that we’ve heard for sometime now from the conservative idiots (including GLBTQs) in San Francisco’s former Gay Mecca known as The Castro that “there’s no longer a need for gay meccas because gay people can live anywhere now…gay is now mainstream.” Ha!
I should point out that the conservatives have never liked gay areas of cities to begin with and referred to them pejoratively as “gay ghettos.”
Speaking of “gays can live anywhere:” Most people in the US think it’s illegal to fire a person for being gay. They’re wrong. In more than half of the 50 states of The Cesspool/the US/los Estados Unidos, it is currently legal for an employer to fire an employee for being gay. Fortunately, we have sexual orientation and gender identity protection here in California. But only 21 states of the 50 states and the District of Columbia make it illegal to fire employees for their sexual orientation. Of those 21 states, 18 of them and the District also ban firing transgender employees. As for this “Gay is now mainstream and gay people can live anywhere” nonsense, that’s true only in some people’s dreamstate.
Then there’s this prudish bathroom stuff. jesus fucking christ! The Cesspool/The US is such a fucked-up country when it comes to human sexuality, nudity and anything having to do with the human body other than keeping the human body completely clothed like a nun so as not to “show skin.” Did you hear about this?: “Woman Harassed in Bathroom for Appearing Transgender — and She’s Not Alone.” What the fuck difference does it make what bathroom somebody uses? If you’re secure with yourself and your own sexuality you would have no problem using a Unisex bathroom where both men and women use it, like in Japón/Nihon/Japan and other countries. It seems to be mainly fucked-up-in-the-head insecure guys who don’t want someone to see their “pee pee.” Ugh. No one gives a fuck about your “pee pee.” I am sick to death of insecure guys worried about their small “pee pee” being seen by somebody. There are all these imaginary predators in these bathrooms according to the lunatics opposing the right for transgenders to use the bathroom of their choice. I’ve never had anyone approach me in a public bathroom and I don’t know anyone who has. I don’t care what bathroom they use and neither should you if you’re secure with yourself as a person (and your own sexuality).
The Cesspool/The US: (Sigh.) UGH! What a fucked-up country.
I welcome transgenders to use whatever bathroom you’re most comfortable using and take your time. And feel free to use any part of my website that you want. Feel free to comment and say whatever you’d like, and you can make it as long or as short as you want. There’s plenty of space here. Chau.—el barrio rosa
