Re: Your article.
In the article you submitted for our consideration, you made the following unsupported statement(s) --
How does a nation navigate such conflicting currents? Ideally, its political leadership would explain to people why these rights are important and propose bathroom accommodations that would ensure privacy and security. They would, well, lead—patiently, calmly, and honestly.-- to bolster your thesis that Both Sides are to blame for all the huggamugga around the issue of where people go to pee.
Absolutist rigor can drive a politician to seek the right outcome the wrong way—to stoke animus rather than inspire social change.
Instead, the GOP is exploiting the public’s fear of change and the Democratic Party is demonizing its opponents.First, do you ever write anything other than threadbare retreads of this same, stupid argument. Seriously. we'd all like to know. In fact, you crank some iteration of this thing out with such metronomic predictability that we up here in the executive suites have a drinking game based on not taking a drink every time you fail to blame Both Side and/or the Corrupt Duopoly for whatever is pissing your off on any given.
So far, half the executive staff has been hospitalized with alcohol poisoning. Probably not a great idea, us being hammerd all the time, but it does explain why you still have a job with The Atlantic, so blessings counted!
Second. since you admit that the GOP is stoking people basest fears for vile, partisan advantage, how is calling out despicable people for behaving despicably "demonizing"?
Third, and most important, before we can accept your article for publication, please cite three examples of where a minority group whose civil right were being violated and whose existence was being used to whip bigots into a frenzy improved their condition by sitting quietly, doing nothing and waiting patiently and calmly for their despicable oppressors and tormentors to stop using them as scapegoats, evolve opposable thumbs and climb down out of the Stupid Tree.
The Editors of The Atlantic over in the Better Universe
And speaking of unevolved Pig People who have feathered a fine nest for themselves up in the Stupid Tree and are never, ever coming down...
...Ewick son of Ewick thinks that Ron "Severe Dementia" Fournier is not putting his pedal to the Both Siderism metal nearly hard enough (from "I Think Ron Fournier Misses Something Important Here" with emphasis added):
Likewise, because there is not a standardized definition and point at which we can say this person should be able to go to the girls’ room and this one should not, we are faced with the same situation on transgenderism that we are faced with open carry gun laws. A group of a**holes decide to push the boundaries and carry their machine guns strapped to their backs into grocery stores making people uncomfortable because “it’s their right,” and a group of dudes with facial hair go pee on the seats in girls’ bathrooms because they’ve decided to identify as a girl that day. Don’t tell me it is a hypothetical. Both situations are happening.
And once again, Fox News contributor and respected Conservative Big Thinker, Ewick Son of Ewick, hits the Wake Up Sheeple! alarm because he cannot distinguish between what's happening in some dank corner of PornHub where he may or may not spend sleepless nights "researching" -- "a group of dudes with facial hair go pee on the seats in girls’ bathrooms because they’ve decided to identify as a girl that day" -- and shit that has never actually happened in the Real World where actual people live.
But whether this is real threat or more craven wingnut panic peddling from the porn-addled mind of Fox News contributor and respected Conservative Big Thinker, Ewick Son of Ewick, one thing is clear: it's all the fault of those fucking Liberals.
Had Charlotte not overreached, the North Carolina legislature would never have done a thing. But the left decided to push and push and push and not only decided to push, but decided they would impose their will on everyone, including faithful adherents to scripture that teaches “God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” (Gen. 1:27)Actually, there is one more this that is also clear.
In addition to a penchant for fantasies about hairy men who sneak into girl's bathrooms to pee on the seats, Ewick also has a definite thing for pushing.
left decided to push and push and push... and not only decided to push...A group of a**holes decide to push...Pushing and pushing and pushing is only going to cause...And reaching.
Had Charlotte not overreached...There is the original overreach...and now the Obama Administration has overreached...You can think the North Carolina legislature overreached...but understand their overreach...And conservative butt stuff.
It was not conservatives getting a wild hair up their buttsAnd while I don't pretend to know what it all means, I would bet that PornHub has a category for it:
