Let’s Pee in Public Toilets Like Adults May 13, 2016

Let’s go to the public toilet.  Right now and while you are doing your business – think about public toilets you have  used in your lifetime.  My mother used to line the seat with toilet paper.  Then seat covers.  We used the stall and locked the door, we flushed, washed outr hands and kept on going.  In school we used the stall, tried not to hit the seat while squatting on tiptoes.  Nice people flushed. Some people got caught smoking (that was then) and people said Pee-ewww (or worse) if it smelled.  Some schools had cases (seriously) and some called it the basement, the bathroom, the girl’s room but we all went and we all used it.  I don’t know much about urinals.  Actually I think it’s kind of odd to pee standing next to another person – but I have been in places where there were no doors and that took getting used to. But by and large the idea is to get in and out – relieved – as quickly as possible.  I have peed standing up in Paris pissoirs.  At the British Museum I peed and used toilet paper marked “Property of British Museum”.  It was so stiff and waxy one could imagine writing the Magna Carta on it.  Somewhere I kept a clean sheet as a souvenir.  I stole it.

 

My family owned a restaurant in a resort town and it had only one rest room and was called the rest room.  No one complained.  I have used the men’s room when I hadda hadda go because the women’s line was too long.  I hadda go – gender considerations were not an issue.  And now we are  in the throes of a controversy about transgender and restrooms.  What is the matter with us?  It is my assumption that transgender individuals have the same needs  as others.  They are humans and peeing and pooping are something we all do.  Some trans folks have full trans surgeries and thus it is no ones business which bathroom they use publicly nor should it be an issue. (is it?  maybe it is).  Others who are in the process  – dressing to gender identity, don’t wear signs saying – “hey I am trans and still need to pee – am I ALLOWED to do it here.  Why would they?  And every public restroom does have a stall or two.  Some people of all genders don’t like to be watched while in the toilet.  Husbands and wives included (fact). So my question is:  what’s the big deal?  If you have a penis and wear a dress, why not go to the ladies room and close the stall door.  If you have a vagina and dress as a male, why not go to the men’s room and use a stall.  I reckon peeing at a urinal without a penis is messy and silly anyway. But anyone can use a stall.  If you are a trans person and announce your genital business in the peeing or pooping process, then I would say you are probably inviting issues to arise.  But I can see no reason for the brouhaha.  I have never been asked about my gender in a rest room.  And asking a person that question strikes me as rude, nasty, looking for a fight or just plain stupid. And reveals a bigotry that is even uglier.

 

I applaud and support anyone who has gender confusion and moves to resolve this personal matter.  If those folks speak of it – then I am listening and I am happy they have the confidence and self-esteem to do so.  But it  is NONE of my business.  And it certainly is no one’s business what anyone uses to void when in a public toilet with a closed door.

 

Why are we suddenly the Piss Police?  What is the severe preoccupation with genital matters in this country.  Other countries are not where I live.  A public toilet is a public toilet.  And segregating humans who have to go by personal choices or gender issues (or color – remember Jim Crow – who hadda go too?).  And I suppose I would add – if women all sat at a troughs and peed – like men do at urinals (Ick) – it wouldn’t have lasted long anyway. Attire dictated certain customs.  Little girls practice peeing standing up, I know (I did) but it is messy and a few tries quickly ends the experimenting.

 

Using the rest room should not be political.  My suggestion is if you are in a place where this controversy is ongoing or you may go to toilet jail,  do it on the floor outside the restroom.  If the new arbiters of human functions don’t like it – then they should realize they need to cleanup their act or keep their legs crossed.

But here is a reminder to everyone who uses the toilet – at home or in public don’t forget to flush and  please wash your hands.

Not The Age of Aquarius. September 19, 2013

In the course of an average day something usually occurs that gets my goat.  Often more than one and it generally has been exaggerated by social media.  I know – blame it on the Internet – but nothing is sacred and now the profane has entered the realm of the used to be sacred and we are in a mess.  This doesn’t mean I am going to leave FB or go offline.  I love it most of the time but there is soooo much stupid crap shared it can drive a reasonably intelligent human crazy.

Todays’ review:

The United States – “not the greatest country in the world” (I agree with Putin on that) has spun out of control in ways I don’t think anyone could have imagined.  Post-racial?  I don’t think so.  Jim Crow is alive in every corner and on the Internet.  He jumps out constantly allowing us to know just what a screwed mentality exists in this “land of the free”.  It is embarrassing and downright shameful for a “natural born” American who wishes all that buying and selling of humans never happened.  And has never ended – at least in the hearts and minds of too many 21st Century Americans.   What so many of us imagined…no fantasized…would happen when Barack Obama was elected is that the lion would lie with the lamb and love would steer the stars.  Folks.  This is not the Age of Aquarius.  Look at the Congress.  They make me sick.  They are disgusting and they know it.  Lazy, bigoted, misogynist old men who are scared of the Black Guy in the White House.  Hot mess scared.  And stupid and don’t have a real grip on what they are doing and what it bodes for the future.

I am not worried about the death of the middle class as much as I am afraid of the quantum leap in crime we will face if essential services to low income (poor) Americans are cut or denied.  Angry, jobless, homeless, hungry individuals and families will be willing to do almost anything to feed their kids. Crime will escalate. And since many who are having babies (and for some odd reason the true believers think this is really a smart move) are in the lower income bracket or worse, teenagers who will be denied any assistance, those babies if they survive without,  will see themselves as worthless and act accordingly.  There will be a ton of secret sex going on too and no birth control and no choice and no assistance and no food and medical care and then what.  John Boehner is gonna order another pitcher of martinis and tee off?  The people who support this philosophy have not realized that Harry Potter is a made up character and no magic wand is going to return us to the era of black and white TV.  In fact, lots of these “true believers” weren’t even born then.  Thus far I have not heard a single answer from any of these miscreants about the “babies”.  And believe me, the more mouths there are to feed on this dying little planet, the worse it will be – not the better.  Read Malthus.

Post racial?  Do Not Be Black in America.  Don’t do it.  Forget the Happy Family in the White House – being black in this country is a capital crime.  Ask Miss America?  Ask anyone who has ever been pulled over driving while black.  Ask my family?  Jim Crow is alive and just because you wish it was different – it isn’t.  Just because Mr. O wishes it were different – it isn’t and Mrs. O rolls her eyes with good reason.  If Mr. O had to run again – he could simply choose as his campaign slogan “damned if you do and damned if you don’t”.

Women?  Close your legs girlies.  You are the Holy Grail for the crusaders.  Your vagina and your reproductive decisions and your right to decide your own fate.  Rape?  Nahh.  You asked for it?  It wasn’t really rape. That outfit.  Gang rape?  College boy antics.  Drugged date rape?  Well – what did you think would happen?  This is mainly white guy rape.  Black guy rape is depraved.  Period.

Abortion – or as I call it “choice” = murder.  You are going to burn in hell.  Don’t believe in hell?  Well THEY do and that’s where you are going because they do.  The babies.  Ask them.  I have no idea.

Gay?  Shame, shame, shame.  Well mostly males shame, shame, shame.  Straight men like to watch “two gals go at it”, so Lesbians take less of a hit – but they are disgusting in general because they do not all look like Penthouse models.  And a good shtup would cure all that anyway – preferably using their penis.  Gay marriage?  Legal, mostly but disgusting too.  Pray it away but not in their churches because it is against God’s will.  Which God?  You can love your fellow person but make sure it is not your fellow man if you are a man and not your fellow woman, if you are a woman (unless you are Penthouse material).

Universal health care?  Commie, pinko, socialist, weirdo wrong.  Uncivilized even.  Oh Canada.

Jingo Journalism.  Sounds like a jumprope rhyme.  Reads like a jumprope rhyme.   Proliferating in geometric progressions.

Peace?  Highly overrated because it is a fantasy.  We like to kill.  Been doing it since written history. We love it.  Any method, any reason, anywhere.  This is a blood soaked planet.

So as I approach another alpha boomer birthday, this is what gets my goat.  This not all that gets my goat but this is today’s list. Don’t abandon hope,but don’t confuse this with the Age of Aquarius because it isn’t.

Long time gone.  And back.  For Bullroarer – yes Intelligence could have at least done a wrap-up movie to complete this amazing series.

The 2012 Crusade for President by the highly strange GOP has become a tent revival for the right.  And right in the middle is The Vagina.  Anyone who has one is a part of the dialogue.  The Gang of Four (is it four now) is not running to be the candidate for jobs or the economy or better housing or tax reform or anything else.  I assume that when blatant racism didn’t fly they must have spun so far out of control that all that was left was the Mystical Vagina.  Considering the number of children among them it seems they have been to the mountain and kept going back for more.

The recent surge of Sanctum Sanctorum ( who may not get the nod for the election but will surely be nominated to the Office for the Question of the Faith) is baffling to me.  Why would the most men support this man.  If you consider the number of Deadbeat Dads and children born without the “name of father”  filled in on birth certificates – why would they ever want to speak ill of choice and birth control.  I would reckon that more men have uttered the words “”how do I even know it’s mine?” than you would imagine, so what do they want?  Oh right – to be able to go to the vagina without any responsibility for what comes next.    Well, that is sort of a given anyway.  When I think of the word pillage I always think of the word rape and it is not an irony when you think about it – the Lysistrata camp is about denial of the vagina to get what you want or not want and the Pillage and Rape camp supports the use of the penis to wage fear and punishment – you kind of don’t have to be very smart to see the different vantage points at work here.

So we have this Gang of Four (or apostles as they should be known), religious zealots who are running for a GOP nomination on the basis of genitals. The LDS, two bat shit crazy Catholics and the Objectivist.  Is the entire planet cracking up?  Rolling on the floor laughing their asses off?  Probably – but the world – as we now know instantly – is largely populated by hypocrites, petty tyrants and demi-gods and so why are we even surprised?  Oh – did I leave out old white men?  The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.  They can’t live with it and they can’t live without it – so take control of your own or suffer the consequences.  Just don’t ask me to lay down and participate.

Lost in the Vagina Labyrinths March 5, 2011

Small government is alleged to mean less government interference by the government into matters which are not theirs to control. How did my vagina get into the mess?

 

I am well past the age of abortion or birth control worries and I have always been pro-choice – yet the idea that I could not make this choice chills me to the bone and beyond.  I have made it for myself, by myself in the past.  It seems I can be treated for a growth or a virus or a hip replacement without much to do,  but when it comes to an unplanned pregnancy the entire government wants to look up my crotch and have a say.   It is none of the government’s business. (and believe me,  if someone in government needs to make a choice – chances are they will go and do exactly as they want.  They will have the money and the cover-up and the arrogance to take their wife or daughter or girlfriend to the friendly and accommodating doctor and groom that womb.  With no comment and no conversation.)  Yet the suggestion by many of our bible thumping, holy rolling conservatives in government amounts to this: snatch and jail any woman or doctor who dares to conduct a private procedure in a private room with a patient.  Some want to go so far to make sure that a miscarriage was not an act of abortion and how they plan to do this implies a look up the snatch of any suspect.  Sharia anyone?  Or is this just a cheap thrill conversation for a group of highly repressed, little dicked, old white men who don’t get enough vagina and will use any reason to discuss it.

Ladies and gentlemen, do you have any clue who the customers of most massage parlors are?  Escort services? Whores?    Who are the ones who love to kneel on peas for hours while they are told they are dickless wonders?  Who like rubber and leather and the smell of numbers one and two up close and personal?  Middle aged and old white men are the prime demographic for such activities.  These are the same jolly chaps who want to tell women how to run their own reproductive systems as long as it includes abstinence and absolutely no abortion or birth control.     They will pay to roam the vagina labyrinths wrapped in leather and studs; father children they deny and lie to their friends, families and constituents and have the arrogance  then to police my crotch.  Is the way they see stimulus – creation of new jobs  regulating the vaginas of American women?  This is America in 2011.  Italy has abortion and the Pope lives there!!!

Ask them – all of them – the men and their self-righteous women – WHAT ABOUT THE BABIES?  They change the subject.   They won’t support welfare assistance nor will they provide healthcare.  Makes you wonder if they have some side business that traffic in babies and young children.  Other countries do.  It’s very profitable.  With the Internet it far too easy to trade, buy or negotiate damn near anything.  So when you wonder “what about the babies”,  wonder where they could wind up and wonder what they could wind up doing.

Government is a cesspool – we know this for sure and this country has found its way back into the morass.  There is much to be learned from the history of the very white and very rich and very amoral.  Somewhere they all meet in the Bohemian Grove of the Vagina Labyrinth – not really understanding or unwilling to learn why this is the last place on earth they have any right  to be.

You Say Vajayjay October 28, 2007

It thrilled me no end today, that the vagina – the water feature ride of every woman (down the chute and out you come – wet!) has an acceptable new name.  At least the NYTimes says so in the Sunday Style Section  (Oct. 28, 2007).  Unlike the much euphemized penis – which early on gets lots of good names, (there seems to be no end to the dick ) ; not so the vagina – her pet name has remained a mystery because no one – even people who have their own – have no clue what they can get away with calling her.  Mention the word “vagina” and you will get a lots of “eee-oooo’s” and “icks”.  Kudos to Eve Ensler who put a fast stop to some of  that with the  wonderful “Vagina Monologues”.  But even Eve’s participants didn’t actually use any names that stuck.  A short look at the names that have sort of stuck in my lifetime ( many of which I used and still do) illustrates the point.  As a little kid I had a “bixie” (??), then there was a long period of where she was:  “down there”, “there”, “up in there”, in there”,  “you know”  (this came with a quick double head motion to the side), twat, pussy and often, simply crotch;  my mother’s favorite was “pooley” (because my little brother couldn’t say pussycat and called the family pet a pooley).  For a while I liked the popular, “suzie”, “woo-woo”, couze (a French guy, I dated used that a lot), and I think my personal favorite at one time was “snatch”.  An old Black street term for her is “cock” – and there is a jump rope rhyme that includes the term (I will email the entire rhyme to anyone curious enough to ask for it). Just to give you an idea of how some folks have the  word “vagina” hovering in their subconscious, a London friend told me about a girl who blurted out to her mother that she just seen the play “Victoria Vagina”!  Sounds right to me.  But today’s revelation that both Grey’s Anatomy and Oprah have designated the term vajayjay as the okay, on and off screen, use with your mother and daughter, nomenclature comes as a relief.  Diaphragm users will be able to explain their vajayjay’s dimension without having to say , “I have a huge vagina”; post menopausal women will no longer blush when buying KY because their vajayjay has shrunk and yeast infections will no longer be called “feminine itch”.  The down side is negligible for the word. It may cause some small problem in South Asia where Vijay is a popular male first name and my brother will no longer have to use the euphemism CUNextTuesday for any reason anymore but that’s a small price for the freedom it allows.  As for the straight male population, they still won’t “call” her anything anyway because they are scared to death of her, no matter how much they want to get in.
