Particularly galling to me is to see how Republicans have framed the issue of access to bathrooms, by transgenders, as a new attack, by President Obama, on the rights of people. Up to the ninth decade, of my life, I had never even heard of the problem even existing.
The problem, it seems, never even arose in all those years. I'm sure that transgender people existed in all those years, on the planet, and I am certain they had to use public bathrooms, but not a single word did I ever hear about it until Republican legislators saw fit to regulate access. Of course, it is now a problem of Obama wanting to interfere in their right to deprive others of their rights.
