The right is going back to an old standby; 'transgender bathrooms'. Remember Phyllis Schlafly hyperventilating about 'unisex bathrooms' in the seventies? (Oh yeah, and women in combat? Eeek.)
Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, says Obama's new non-discrimination policy will be an "open door" for gender-confused and cross-dressing federal employees.What is with the rightwing and their bathroom fixations? Transference? Projection?
"What's the Obama administration going to do to protect women in federal restrooms?" the activist asks. "Since men [wearing] dresses apparently are going to be protected under gender-identity provisions, what about the women in the restrooms in the White House and other federal buildings? What's going to be done to protect their rights?"
LaBarbera even wonders if there is going to have to be a new federal outlay for the building of new "gender-free, transgender restrooms."
