Meanwhile, Back in the Real World …


… the interim Director of the Georgia ACLU has resigned over that organization’s position on transgender rights after her young daughters were frightened by men in a women’s restroom. PowerLine reports:

Dillard Smith complained that the ACLU has become “a special interest organization that promotes not all, but certain progressive rights” and that the “hierarchy of rights” the ACLU chooses to defend or ignore is “based on who is funding the organization’s lobbying activities.”

One or the Other


Dan Joppich has a post over at The American Thinker that may point to a means of bringing some sanity to the transgender bathroom issue. In the section of Title IX relating to bathroom and locker room facilities, the law requires that if such facilities are provided for one sex, then comparable facilities must be provided for the other.

The law refers to “the one sex” and “the other sex”. There are only two choices within the law as it was written in 1972. If it referred to “the other sexes” (plural), as the transgender proponents would like us to believe, the law would have certainly captured any interpretation of what constitutes a sex, but it doesn’t.

You can’t sprinkle magic fairy dust on the law and have a singular noun magically turn plural.

If M. A. S. H. were being produced for TV today, would the Corporal Klinger character still work?
