Arizona's Bathroom Bill

Apparently the good folks in Arizona are really, really concerned about transgender folk using the bathroom, so worried that they tried to pass a bill making it a class one misdemeanor with penalties up to a $2,500 fine and six months in jail for going into a bathroom that did not match the gender on your birth certificate. (As a father who has guarded the men's room door while my young daughter pulled an emergency pit stop, this seems particularly ludicrous.) After an outcry, they backed it off to make discrimination by businesses legal. I'm trying to picture how this plays out in real life. "Excuse me "lady" but you look like a guy. Do you have your birth certificate? Sorry, I need the long form birth certificate, not that short form version." It gives "birther" a whole, new meaning.

Hi!

Wow crazy, everyone I know got a transgender son or daughter or close relative. Maybe it's world of warcraft. LOL!

@engineer,
I actually agree with you politically on this Engineer, but I think that the left is going to need to be very careful on this issue.

I live in Cambridge, MA... pretty much as liberal a place as you can get. I was at a breakfast with other parents, there was a discussion among the Cambridge "PTA" moms about how sharing a changing room with trans-gendered women made them uncomfortable.

This surprised me. I think this is an issue where liberals can lose votes.
