If you had thought that the insanity of our public officials was merely temporary, on March 11, 2016, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio proved you wrong. He issued an executive order giving men the right to use women's bathrooms and locker rooms, and vice versa:
- The mayor's edict is called, "Access to Single-Sex City Facilities Consistent With Gender Identity and Expression." It means that all New York City single-gender facilities must accommodate both sexes, including city buildings and offices, parks, children's playgrounds, swimming pools, and more, all access given without showing identification or any proof of gender.
- Mayor de Blasio declared that transgenders using opposite sex bathrooms and locker rooms "is a fundamental human right that should not be restricted or denied to any individual." Ironically, he added, "Every New Yorker should feel safe in our city." (LifeSiteNews)
Just wondering how this might play out, accompanied by my wife, I walked up to a security guard standing by the public bathrooms and asked:
- I happen to feel quite feminine today. Would you mind if I used the Lady’s Toilette?
Fortunately, he knew that I was joking with him, laughed, and confessed that this policy had not yet been implemented. When I asked him how he would be able to distinguish the transgendered from a molester, he again laughed helplessly. We both understood that there could be no way to distinguish.
But according to our mayor, this is their “human right.” However, according to another NYC ordinance, it is not our human right to call a transgendered a “he,” when, biologically, the transgendered “she” is a he! Actually, if you do that, it is the “human right” of the city to fine you up to $250,000. I don’t see how this will accomplish our mayor’s goal that "Every New Yorker should feel safe in our city." I don’t feel safe when I have to watch every pronoun that proceeds from my mouth.
But such are “human rights!” I just wonder from where our empathetic mayor derives them. Certainly not from the Constitution or even from our pre-De Blasio statutes! Perhaps he has his own private bible, and perhaps the rest of us have failed to see the light. I just wonder whether it includes something about the human rights of women for privacy and protection against predators and porn-producers. Perhaps our mayor just hasn’t reached that part in his bible yet.
