Monday, May 16, 2016 – Smoking in the Boys’ Room – You wish that was all that is going on in a high school bathroom.
Note: This is not about transgender and bathroom issues. It is about the Texas Executive Branch making decisions it does not have a statutory authority to make.
To: Governor Greg Abbot and Lt. Governor Dan Patrick,
I have a few questions regarding The Bathroom Issue. Now I did not go to law school, but I am pretty good at educational law and looking at schools.
When was the last time either of you went to a bathroom in a high school? Not the one in the teachers’ lounge or in the principal’s office. The one for the students at the end of the hall. Or the bathroom isolated in the building somewhere. Do you have any idea what can and does go on in a middle or high school bathroom? And sadly, even elementary school bathrooms have bullies and fights.
Governor Abbott? Is filing lawsuits against the Executive Branch of the federal government all you know how to do? How much does this cost me and the taxpayers of Texas? Wouldn’t these dollars be better spent going to the public schools of Texas?
Check for understanding: The Texas Executive Office (that would be Abbott and Costello, I mean Patrick) are willing to sacrifice the boys and girls of the Texas public schools by not accepting federal education money over school bathrooms? And you two made this decision on your own?
Don’t both of your offices in the capitol have private potties? Was the Governor’s bathroom modified to accommodate wheels?
Here’s What I’m Thinking – How about labeled port-a-potties? Line them up outside like privies. Label them. Color code them. One can go to the bathroom under which ever label they feel most comfortable.
Labels include, but not limited to:
- Transgender Male to Female
- Transgender Female to Male
- Still Confused
- Straight Boys
- Gay Boys
- Straight Girls
- Don’t Care
- Straight Males of Color
- Straight Females of Color
- Gay People of Color
I suggest you place a row of port-a-potties near the athletic facilities. This should include portable facilities broken down by sport:
- Men’s Basketball
- Women’s Basketball
You get the idea. These could be pay toilets like there were in the 1950’s. One had to pay to pee. Fund raisers for the booster clubs perhaps.
It could bring good advertising opportunities for local businesses. Just think – This port-a-potty for Straight Boys is sponsored by Kevin’s Klean Kars!
Save your Confederate Toilet Paper. The South is Gonna Rise Again!
Well said. Most Texans want more money in schools and health care. So why do Texans keep selecting politicians who reject money based on political footballs they thing will get them to the Whitehouse.
