It is really tough to figure out what is the most objectionable facet of the far right’s disingenuous war against the bathroom freedoms of transgendered Americans, but my vote for most hilarious part is their fantasy fixation on the movie Porky’s. First it was Mike Huckabee fantasizing on stage about pretending to be transgendered so he could have showered with the girls back in high school, and now it is Louie Gohmert, possibly the dumbest person in Congress, to step up to the plate. Louie however doesn’t want to shower with the gals, no, seventh grade Louie would have been happy just to pee with them. (Again, from the kind folks at Right Wing Watch)
Citing his own childhood, the congressman said that boys would be unable to resist the temptation to see girls while they are in the bathroom.
Gohmert recounted to “Washington Watch” host and Family Research Council President Tony Perkins his junior-high fantasies.
“When it comes to this current legislation where — in most of the world, in most of the religions, the major religions, you have men and you have women, and there are some abnormalities but for heaven’s sake, I was as good a kid as you can have growing up, I never drank alcohol till I was legal, never to, still, use an illegal drug, but in the seventh grade if the law had been that all I had to do was say, ‘I’m a girl,’ and I got to go into the girls’ restroom, I don’t know if I could’ve withstood the temptation just to get educated back in those days,” he said.
Gohmert then said that businesses like PayPal are now “telling states that you have to let boys into little girls’ restrooms or we’re pulling our business, it’s just the height of lunacy.”
Sigh. Insert amusing comment about how Gohmert’s lack of intelligence is as dangerous as fire.
