I was tempted to post this item without comment, but can’t resist:
Charges were filed Tuesday against a man who wore a wig and women’s clothing to disguise himself as he allegedly used a concealed camera to record “hours” of video of women in a Los Angeles-area department store restroom.
How do we know he was “disguised”? That might have been part of zirs “self-identification” regalia. What about “his reality”? I say both the police and reporter on this story are presumptuous cis-bigots.
Jason Pomare, 33, of Palmdale, was arrested Saturday after customers contacted security officers at a Macy’s store to report a man in the women’s restroom. The security officers contacted a deputy, who was on patrol at the Antelope Valley Mall when he saw a man matching the subject’s description leave the store.
When the deputy found the man hiding in a mall storage area, the subject was wearing a wig, women’s clothing and bra, according to a statement from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
“The deputy noticed he was wearing a wig and appeared to have breasts,” said Sgt. Brian Hudson, of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Obviously this guy was a garden-variety perv. But what if he’d graduated from an advanced gender studies program, and knew how to spout the right line on this issue? Things might get interesting once pervs like this catch on.
More good sense here from Matthew Hennessey. Sample:
Gotham mayor Bill de Blasio—the Stringbean Sandinista—has issued an executive order allowing transgendered people to use any bathrooms they like “without being required to show identification, medical documentation, or any other form of proof or verification of gender.” This stands in stark contrast to the NYPD’s “if you see something, say something” policy on terrorism.
Fair warning: If you come to New York and you see a dodgy looking dude hanging around the little girl’s room, you’re better off keeping it to yourself. His reality is all that counts.
