More than 700,000 people have signed a pledge to boycott Target following their announced stance on genderless bathrooms. However, this isn't the first time unisex bathrooms have raised an uproar.
In 2002, the thought of a unisex bathroom was insane. How do we know? The TV show Ally McBeal --- even the cast thought it was a crazy idea.
“The most absurd part of a television sitcom was a thing that is now engrained in law and you're a hatemonger for opposing,” Co-host Stu Burguiere said.
So, logically, this whole shebang started with a TV show.
“So I want to blame Ally McBeal for this whole bathroom thing,” Glenn joked.
As absurd as the whole issue might be, the reality of shared bathrooms is not good. Aside from opening the door to perverts and putting females at risk, there's the whole mars vs. venus thing on how men and women use restrooms.
"I'm telling you, ladies, the first time you have to wipe up some stranger's pee off the seat, that guys don't give a flying crap . . . and they won't lift the seat, and they'll just pee all over it . . ." Glenn said. "When you have to do that almost every time you want to sit down, you are going to kick guys out of your bathroom so fast."
We're faced with dire national issues, yet this is the issue we have to focus on.
“The world is on fire. The economy is collapsing. Don't you think this is an intended circus? This is just the new circus and cakes,” Glenn said. “This is just the new coliseum.”
