Colbert Mocks Anti-Trans “Bathroom Weirdos” [VIDEO]

From the Washington Post:

Stephen Colbert doesn’t like that legislators in North Carolina and elsewhere are legislating which bathrooms transgender people can use. He even called them “weirdos” on Tuesday night’s show. “To all those lawmakers out there who are so obsessed with who’s using what bathroom and what plumbing they’ve got downtown?” Colbert said. “Newsflash: You’re the weirdos.”

      Do you know offhand that website that was tracking “religious freedom” bills? It was posted here a while back and I forgot to bookmark it – very helpful.

    As usual, Colbert got this dead right!

    I was so tempted to say something to Colbert at an airport urinal once. I’m glad I didn’t!

    • Phillip in L.A.

      One time when we were eating at Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills, Jude Law was sitting at the table next to us. He got up to go to the Men’s Room, and even though I did not have to go, I jumped up and followed him in there.

      Standing at the urinal next to him made my heart pound! Of course we both checked each other out surreptitiously, as men/boys do. Then he started whistling, finished peeing, shook himself off, washed his hands, and went back to his table. I followed a minute or two later, and we finished our meal.

      Unfortunately these morons are incapable of being shamed. They think they are righteous and guided by their god so nothing can persuade them to do any differently.

    The blue rose of democracy for you, Monsieur Colbert!

    You have been a friend and champion of JUSTICE for many years, and I’m so GLAD you continue to speak out!

    • Dan Robinson

      I didn’t even know there was a Blue Rose of Democracy! It’s lovely!
      Do blue roses really exist? Ooh! Let’s look it up!

      Jeopardy wait (thinking…) music……

      Why yes they do but not in nature. Only with genetic modification.

      Thank you Mr. Bear, you are my mentor!

    Meanwhile, in Alabama, some town ups the ante with *jail time* for peeing-while-trans: http://www.liberalamerica.org/2016/04/27/alabama-jumps-on-the-anti-trans-bandwagon-by-bathroom-ordinance-video/

      I had a women go off on me about being in the wrong restroom, in an art gallery of all places. I almost showed her my tits to get my point across. She left and I peed so I guess I won.

      • Skokieguy [Larry]

        Insane. And these nutty legislators wouldn’t accept a titty flash as adequate proof. After all, there are probably thousands of child molesters taking hormones and getting implants right now just so they can molestesize teh children’! Why aren’t you thinking about the children!

        • Bj Lincoln

          I have short hair and love my Levis so I am mistaken for male some times. I don’t care. I am rather androgynous but use the womens room most of the time. Sometimes the line is long so I will pop into the mens room if I can’t wait. I never got yelled at in the mens room but I have been questioned in the womens room many times.

          • I have used men’s restrooms more than a few times for exactly that reason. I get the “You sure you’re in the right room?” look, usually followed by the “I wonder where her son is…?” look.

            Then I let ’em off the hook simply by saying, “I’m sorry but it’s urgent and there’s a long line next door.”

            I’ve never gotten anything other than an understanding nod and sometimes a hand-wave towards the nearest toilet stall.

            I’ve also seen men in the women’s restroom. Actual men, not transgender women. Why? Because men’s restrooms rarely have those fold-down baby changing tables, which is sexist as all hell.

        • zhera

          They think a little TOO MUCH about the children. In the wrong way.

    • BostonDotTom
    • RaygunsGoZap

      It is real. Saw this on FB a few days ago. It made me so furious. And some of the comments about how she should dress differently and that not having an ID on you should be a crime. You know, ideas from the “freedoms” crowd. They sent 2 male cops into the women’s restroom who the ridiculed, bullied and manhandled a female out of it all while ignoring other women – including a female security guard – that their target was actually female. I hope she sues the fuck out of them and the mall.

    • JCF

      Of course it’s real. “Ve Vant Manly Men und Femmly Vimmen!” doncha know…

  • Christian Flanagan

    Yikes. A woman was arrested in NC for using a bathroom and not being able to prove she’s female.

      Disgusting. Are they policing fashion style now?

      • Tor

        Someone has to police fashion.

      • William

        My town’s gonna need a bigger jail. There are lots of unladylike women here.

    • Alyssa

      that was in December and was in Detroit, not NC.

    • Octavio

      That’s horrible, but I’m not certain that’s not a staged incident? Who was the woman? Where did it happen. When did it happen? Such incidentals sort of lend credibility. πŸ™‚

  • Lumpy Gaga

    Imagine having to share a bathroom with either Ted or Carly.

    I’d tuck and get a wig just to avoid that.

  • Robert Conner

    Someone in Congress needs to sponsor the Craig-Hastert Bill to prevent solicitation in public restrooms.

    • ECarpenter

      If you ignore anyone tapping their feet in the next stall, you’ll be fine.

      Solicitation for sex only comes at the end of a very discreet set of signals back and forth that show that someone’s interested – don’t give interested signals, you’ll be left alone.

      We really don’t need more prudish legislation to crack down on harmless behavior.

        He could step back from the camera just a bit.

        • Jimmie Z

          I would spring for a deluxe selfie stick for him.

  • The detail in all this which infuriates me is how these bigots are promoting the lie that Trans = probable sexual predator. That’s just fucking sick and slanderous.

    I’ll say it again: I’ve never seen anybody who I thought was transgender in the women’s restroom who didn’t simply want to ‘answer a call of nature’ and leave without incident or notice. Not once ever was it otherwise.

    But y’know, the overwhelming proportion of those who rape women are heterosexual non-transvestite males, so maybe we should require all men everywhere to wear location monitoring anklets? Y’know, for the safety and privacy of women everywhere? /s

    Right on Stephen Colbert! That is why more Republican legislators have been arrested for sexual misconduct in restrooms than have been transgenders. And look at Danniela Hastert, another Republican arrested for sexually molesting boys when he was a coach!
