Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Conservative activists are often the people most guilty of the crimes they rail against.  The only people committing in-person voting fraud are activists showing that it possible to do so.  The fact that it doesn't happen, because it is largely pointless doesn't matter.

Now, we have (presumably) heterosexual men entering women's bathrooms in order to prove that heterosexual men can enter bathrooms in Target stores under their policy that allows transgender people to use the bathroom that they identify.

Look, assholes, there are very few transgender people in the world.  And chances are they have been using the bathrooms they want all along.  If you're a trans woman - someone assigned male at birth - and you identify, dress and present as female, then you have been using the women's room all along.  And no one knew about it or cared about it.  I mean, there are stalls in there for FSM's sake!

So, once again, the conservative fever swamps have created a crisis where none exists (Shariah law!) and have now proceeded to create the problem that only they think exists in the first place.
