Re: “House votes expansion of indecent exposure act; 'bathroom bill light' blasted by transgender rights group

Too bad there are not only two opposing, binary polarized genders then huh? What, pray tell, would be the opposite gender for an agender person? (AFAIK, there are some 27 known chromosomal gender variations in humans... and again, you'd never know without expensive testing.)

No, this is clearly just more transphobic BS.

Re: “USDA files complaint over wildlife park in Northwest Arkansas

It's about time this place was shut down and their animals taken care of properly. I've been trying to get people to avoid this place for years. One of the (former?) owners, part of the family, got busted back in the early 00s for selling tiger skins. I know the animals are NOT getting proper care, are being bred in captivity and raised by humans (an absolute NO), and are NOT getting appropriate food - you can see their big, open-topped trailer loaded up with the cheapest remnant leftover white bread products driving around town. One guy used to go to the Walmart Express (while that was still a thing) and buy loaves of the cheapest sandwich bread, openly admitting that was what it was for. And it's well known that anybody who lives out there will occasionally have some animal come "for a visit". There was an incident in the 90s with an escaped monkey at the elementary school playground, which they claimed couldn't possibly be theirs.

Re: “The bathroom bill: How big a 'problem'?

I'm just gonna point out that gender is not a binary, there are literally dozens of gender variations including many chromosomal variations (which any one of us could have unknowingly without some major expensive and fairly rare karyotype testing), hormonal combinations, and physical characteristics. It is not simple! We have created this simplistic system of categorization that isn't working for lots of people, be they trans, nonbinary, agender, intersex, or just desperately in need of a toilet. Trans people of color, specifically, are more likely to be the victim of a public assault than the perpetrator and this kind of public harassment is directly contributing. This is exactly the sort of law that is selectively enforced against anyone "not like us".

Having to use a public bathroom is bad enough, stop making it worse.

Re: “Wednesday: An open line and a daily news roundup

A newspaper would have to have something I'd want to read in it, not just slanted opinion pieces, middle school football highlights, and the occasional obit. I really don't feel like I'm missing much.

Re: “Friday at last. An open line and the daily video roundup

Newsworthy? Ya got 3 more weekends to get out and support your local haunted house, which is where I spend my Friday and Saturday nights in October. In case you need something fun-scary, as opposed to real-world-scary.

Re: “Tuesday's open line and the day's video

Hey folks! Have a survey from the state dept of highway an' transpo. If you're into supporting public transportation (aka "multimodal options" in their jargon), etc. then now's the time:

http://wemovearkansas.com/metroquest.html

It's not a good survey, but it's something. Have at. (Not quick, not fun, not interactive, and I smell a waste of money on an expensive survey website. But something. If nothing else, an opportunity to rank 10-lane highway expansion projects as low-priority.)
