    Indiana bill would charge trans people $5,000 to go to the toilet

    A bill has been introduced in Indiana which would fine people $5,000 dollars to go to the bathroom.

    Republican Senator Jim Tomes filed the bill, titled the ‘Single-sex facilities Act’.

    The bill would effectively ban any toilets that aren’t designated ‘male’ or ‘female’.

    It adds: “Student facilities in school buildings must be designated for use by female students or male students, and may be used only by the students of the biological gender for which the facility is designated”.

    Their obsession(s) run much deeper than just toilets icon_rolleyes.gif

    Sounds like something ISIS will want to do once they establish their caliphate.

    Sounds like a reasonable bill to me.

    That's the same state that almost passed a law defining the value of pi.

    I think they got stalled on whether the law should apply to apple or cherry. Because Republican lawmakers, who only get their science & math out of the Bible, have no idea what pi means as a geometrical concept. All they can understand when they hear the word "pi" is pie for dessert.

    Don't worry.

    You'll get a senior discount.

    And did you say pi? I'll take pecan.

    Republicans are happiest when they are beating up on a vulnerable minority group -- it's the one thing they're good at.

    What's next? Tampon dispensers in the men's room, and urinals in the ladies room? icon_lol.gif

    I was in Staples office store today and had to pee.

    They had two single person restrooms where you lock the door. So the men's room was occupied, and my patience level is 10 seconds, so I use the women's room. If I was fined $5,000....well, this is just a stupid bill.

    "Breaking the law is punishable by a fine of up to $5,000 dollars – or up to one year in jail."

    Inmate 1: So what'd you do?

    Inmate 2: Killed a man, you?

    Inmate 1: I went in the women's washroom.

    Inmate 2: Damn that's hardcore.

    Perhaps I should have written "π".

    I once accidentally used the women's rest room in the west bank library at the University of Minnesota. The building was symmetrical in such a way that such a mistake could easily occur.
