“Attorney General Brad Schimel thinks the mandate from President Barack Obama’s administration to allow transgender students into the bathroom of the gender with which they identify is a radical experiment?” one Nancy Rathe asks at madison.com. As well she might; Wisconsin is one of 11 states suing the Obama administration for threatening to remove federal funding from schools that refuse to transgenderize their bathrooms. Ms Rathe figures it’s no biggie: “Students and adults have been using the bathrooms they feel are appropriate to their chosen gender for a long time now.” As far as she’s concerned, there’s a more important “social experiment” chugging along in the background . . .
If you want an action meant to “turn workplaces and educational settings across the country into laboratories for a massive social experiment,” I would suggest you look at the National Rifle Association’s attempts to put firearms of all sizes, ammunition capacities and firing speeds into the hands of every American of any age, mental state and history of violence. Guns in schools, churches, offices, bars, sports stadiums and government buildings. Where will it stop?
I say that is a “social experiment” to see how long this country can remain a place reasonable people want to inhabit.
So far so good! And let’s not forget that America has “experimented” with civilian disarmament; when the government disarmed native Americans, African Americans and Japanese-Americans. Yeah, that didn’t work out so well. And I imagine disarmament does no favors for transgender Americans, either.
