The time has come for me to play my Woman Card.
A male Republican politician in my state of Wisconsin has introduced a “bathroom bill” like the one passed in North Carolina, which requires transgender people to use the bathroom of the gender they were assigned at birth.
He says it’s to “protect women and children.”
Oh, knight in shining armor, thank you for trying to protect me and my fellow women. But I fear you misunderstand the real issues women have in restrooms.
Here are a few laws you might propose instead to help us out:
- Ban men from leaving the toilet seat up, so we don’t fall in.
- Mandate that public restrooms never run out of toilet paper, so we’re not left stranded in stalls, fishing through our purses on the off chance we’ll find some tissues.
