A Piss is Just a Piss: Transgender Bathroom Laws are the New Hate Du Jour

Let's get real about what the actual effect of this new wave of transgender discriminating bathroom laws looks like in practice.

New laws in North Carolina and Mississippi demand that:

This guy use the lady's room.


And that this gal use the men's room.


These laws put transgender people in danger and do nothing for public safety. Voyeurism and harassment in restrooms is already illegal, regardless of the gender of the person. This fear is a non-issue designed for no other purpose than to cloak bigotry and discrimination under the guise of protecting the innocent.

If we really wanted to protect the innocent, maybe we need laws banning conservative politicians from restrooms. I do not jest. I have scoured the interwebs and I can not find even one instance of a transgender person being accused of inappropriate behavior in restrooms.

But you don't need to look very hard to find incidents of conservative bathroom misconduct. Just Google Larry Craig, Bob Allen, or the king molester and longest serving Republican Speaker of the House Denny Hastert.

Live and let live folks, a piss is just a piss.

  1. Yes, a piss is just a piss.

    In new government construction, unisex toilets will cut the toilet budget by half. That money saved can be applied to good use elsewhere.

My Kind of Federal Judge!

Sure we have Scott Rothstein and his lovely Tom James clothier Romina Sifuentes, but Louisiana has ED LA judge G. Thomas Porteous Jr.:
A federal judge from Louisiana who had run up big gambling debts routinely solicited money and gifts from lawyers with cases before his court, Congressional investigators said Tuesday as the House opened impeachment hearings in the judge’s case. The judge, G. Thomas Porteous Jr. of Federal District Court, had more than $150,000 in credit card debt by 2000, mostly for cash advances spent in casinos, investigators said. Judge Porteous’s requests for cash became so frequent that one New Orleans lawyer said he started trying to dodge the judge.“He began to use excuses that he needed it for tuition, he needed it for living expenses,” the lawyer, Robert Creely, told a House Judiciary Committee task force. “I would avoid him until I couldn’t avoid him anymore.”
Mr. Creely said he and his law partner, Jacob Amato, gave Judge Porteous an estimated $20,000 o…

Honoring Richard C. Seavey

I drank a shit-ton of bourbon last night. Enough to float a battleship.

My head hurts. But not as much as my heart.

We lost another lawyer over the weekend. Not someone who will receive facebook accolades and other public claims of friendship and statements that he shaped and changed lives and careers. Just a guy who did the best he could with what he had. Every day. And he did very, very well to be the best person he could be. 
Richard Seavey was a profoundly private person. In his 49 years, he walked through more than his share of trials and tribulations, mostly asking for no help, leaning on no one. 

Richard was a fantastic lawyer. He could try a case. He could "litigate" a case. He could mediate and settle a case. He was nuanced. He bent but never broke. The blustery Miami lawyer never scared him. To the contrary, he found humor in it, studying it like a science project. Richard never got too high or too low. He was good at lawyering, but you got the f…
