News Roundup for 12/21/10

Paul Scott
Hangs around outside public restrooms

-Headline of the day-
"A Matter of Bigoted Priorities."

State Rep. Paul Scott wants to be Michigan's Secretary of State, because he's got super-important things he thinks need to get done right pronto. Listed among his top four priorities; "I will make it a priority to ensure transgender individuals will not be allowed to change the sex on their driver’s license in any circumstance."

This has been a huge problem because... Umm... Why has this been a huge problem, Paulie?

Well, he's got an answer for that. Scott says it's about "preventing people who are males genetically from dressing as a woman and going into female bathrooms." Oddly, it's not exactly illegal for transgendered people to use the bathroom that matches their new genitalia. So who's to start checking IDs outside bathrooms? Not the cops.

I don't think Paulie's given his "top priorities" a lot of thought. (Right Wing Watch)
