Cruz: Put Congress in charge of bathrooms

The battle over bathrooms is serious. DNA should decide. That said, like marriage, abortion and a host of other issues, this is a matter for the states to decide. Congress already has enough on its plate.

From the Daily Beast:
After he lost the Republican nomination, Sen. Ted Cruz's backers will now reportedly pivot towards trying to gain control of the GOP's platform during the national convention. According to The New York Times, top Cruz aide Ken Cuccinelli wrote in an email to supporters urging them to come to Cleveland in July to "protect against liberal changes to our platform." Cuccinelli confirmed the effort to the Times, telling them that Cruz's backers seek to protect "movement conservatism," including a firming of the party's core positions on abortion and the addition of language regarding transgender bathroom use. "We want to have girls go in girls’ bathrooms," he said, alluding to how presumptive nominee Donald Trump has taken a more liberal position than Cruz on which bathrooms transgender individuals can use.
No. Just no.

Cuccinelli, once a Tea Party idol, has turned into another busy body.

I never memorized the Constitution, but isn't there a 10th Amendment in there somewhere?

  1. Just wait until all these leftist liberal women discover the "joys" of gender neutral restrooms. They go into a stall and find that some guy left a BIG stinky dump for them to flush or they walk in at a busy time and find the guys pissing in the sinks.

    Within a year they won't give a damn about "the rights of the transgendered", they'll demand restrooms be segregated according to biological gender again.

    1. Or they'll go in and revoke his "woman card" by force.

    2. Women are far nastier then men. I cleaned restrooms while in high school. Inspected them while in the military, and dealt with wives and daughters.

  2. I heard Cuccinelli last week (before Cruz suspended his campaign) explaining how he was leading the Virginia delegation to give nearly all of their votes to Cruz at the convention. Cuccinelli explained because he was such a good guy, he was going to reserve 3/13 votes for Trump, and not give them all to Cruz. Cuccinelli is another RINO sellout and I would not vote for him if he was running for dog catcher.

  3. The Department of Education and Dept. of Justice are pushing these transgendered bathroom requirements. So just pushing for a law prohibiting the DoE and DoJ from sticking their nose in this issue and respecting State's rights doesn't sound unreasonable. Kicking out the SJWs in those departments would be an important second step.

  6. I worked as a custodian for a time while I was in college. Granted, it was for a church, but I found that the men did a better job of keeping their bathroom cleaner than did the women. Lower wait times are a factor, too. If they do come, we will need to fight back, and what I would suggest is tàking up space in line in women's bathrooms and letting guys cut in front of you. Then, when you get to the stall, just stand there for ten minutes and then go to the men's room.

  7. Hopefully, common sense will prevail in the bathroom wars. As far as Trump and the GOP party platform are concerned, I don't think he could care less about it. People won't be voting for a stinking platform, they'll be voting for Trump. - Elric

  8. The NC law doesn't address merely bathrooms, but changing areas, showers, and locker rooms as well. It provides for "single occupation" facilities. The title is "An Act to provide for single-sex multiple occupancy bathroom and changing facilities in schools and public agencies." It addresses "biological sex" and not "gender." Biological sex is defined as the physical condition of being male or female, which is stated on a person's birth certificate.

    Seems to me that the law is, in part, to protect our womenfolk (how did that become a bad thing?) and enable the prosecution of sex offenders. Although not specified, it would preclude a perv from using as a defense, once caught in the girls' locker room, that he actually identifies as a female, so his presence shouldn't be a problem.

  9. I'm curious whether the restroom facilities in the White House and in the Capitol are now "gender neutral" or still designated Male/Female. I'm not asking only about the facilities open to the public; I'm asking about the facilities used by the staff. What about the locker rooms in the Congressional exercise facilities: are they gender neutral, or are there separate locker rooms for men and women?

    1. Maybe some brave souls could make an expedition to the halls of government, visit a congresscritter or two, and find out.

    2. Remember, the laws Congress passes do not apply to them.

    3. What difference would it make? the current crop of congress critters have fewer balls than Lance Armstrong. And that is counting all 535 of them.

  10. I wonder why the liberals are all coming out of the closet as perverts? Why now? Whose kid are they after?
