Below, courtesy of Monty Python’s Life of Brian, is more proof that there is a Monty Python bit for every occasion, even when the characters are living in the first century AD.
Stan: I want to be a woman. From now on I want you all to call me Loretta.
Stan: It’s my right as a man.
Judith: Why do you want to be Loretta, Stan?
Stan: I want to have babies.
Reg: You want to have babies?!?!?!
Stan: It’s every man’s right to have babies if he wants them.
Reg: But you can’t have babies.
Stan: Don’t you oppress me.
Reg: I’m not oppressing you, Stan — you haven’t got a womb. Where’s the fetus going to gestate? You going to keep it in a box?
Stan/Loretta, presumably has male genitalia. That makes him a man. Another character in that scene, Judith, has female genitalia. She’s a woman. We know that for sure because we later see what the Pythons call her “naughty bits” in the funniest nude scene in the history of cinema.
Liberals, led by their chieftain Barack Obama, side with the Stan/Lorettas of the world, they believe that a person’s gender–biological logic be damned–is whatever they want it to be.
Society somehow survived having separate male and female public bathrooms all of these years. But about a decade ago men-who-think-they-are-women and women-who-think-they-are-men began to demand access to the washrooms and locker rooms that don’t match their body parts.
The Battle of the Bathroom has reached into public schools.
And now Barack Obama’s Justice Department wants to strong-arm government schools into allowing confused youths–yes, I know what I’m writing–who believe they are a different gender, access to opposite sex washrooms and locker rooms.
What if the schools want to keep their private facilities the way they’ve been for decades?
Federal funding could be shut off–and there will be an open-door policy for peeping toms and rapists in public female bathrooms.
Hope and change baby, especially for the miniscule percentage of the population–0.3 percent, according to the New York Times–that identify as transgendered. I And I suspect that figure is too high.
In his final year of office Barack Obama is putting his final touches on his legacy. To me Obama is the Bathroom President. It’s how I will remember him. His legacy is set in porcelain.
