Forget open borders; open bathrooms are the new battlefront

Rachel Dolezal, Caitlyn Jenner, and colander-wearing Pastafarians, move over!
We are what we say we are and that is that. Respect me for what I say I am, not what you think I am.
We’re on board. On the next government form to cross the transom here at the Stately Manor, the indentured scriveners will check every box as differently abled, multigendered, transnational, bipartisan, rainbow-raced, eco-sourced specks of stardust.
Madison newspaper legend John Patrick Hunter — pale as a sheet of virgin newsprint — used to say he checked “Negro” on his driver’s license application. Why not?
Truly, we are seeing the triumph of identity politics. (Amnesty for Inky the Octopus and a path to citizenship.)
Forget open borders. The fresh battle for civil rights is the struggle for open bathrooms. Battle site: North Carolina. That state, as ABC News explains:
… directs all public schools, government agencies and public college campuses to require that multiple-occupancy bathrooms and changing facilities, such as locker rooms, be designated for use only by people based on their “biological sex” stated on their birth certificate. Transgender people can use the bathrooms and changing facilities that correspond to their gender identity only if they get the biological sex on their birth certificate changed.
The idea, of course, is to prevent peepers and other perverts from claiming transgender status to justify getting their jollies by invading other people’s privacy. (But who am I to be judgmental? Don’t blame the Squire! He is judgmentally disabled. He can’t help it.)
Wisconsin’s legislature whiffed on a bill to do that here. Last October, State Rep. Jesse Kremer, R-Kewaskum, sponsored a bill “reinforc[ing] the societal norm in our schools that students born biologically male must not be allowed to enter facilities designated for biological females and vice versa. … Options such as single occupancy or faculty facilities can be offered to students who do not identify as their birth gender.”
The bill went nowhere.
