Does trans-friendly NBA apply “bathroom bill” standard equally?

David MenziesMission Specialist

A while back, the National Basketball Association announced it had stripped Charlotte, North Carolina of the 2017 NBA All-Star Game.

What did the Hornets do to get stung so badly by the NBA?

Well, the NBA doesn’t like North Carolina’s “bathroom bill”. This law states people must use the bathroom which corresponds to the gender on their birth certificate.

The NBA is the latest entity to declare the bill transphobic and made a decision to economically penalize the state. The loss of the All-Star Game will cost Charlotte about $100M in tourism dollars.

But does the NBA practice what it preaches?

Watch as I show you what happened when I dropped by the Air Canada Centre, home to Toronto’s NBA franchise, the Raptors, and asked to use the ladies room claiming that I was currently identifying as a female.

As you’ll see, there’s clearly a different standard applied for someone pretending to be a person of a different gender which would seem contrary to the NBA’s public pronouncements regarding North Carolina’s supposedly “transphobic” bathroom bill.

Too bad the Hornets and the city of Charlotte have to pay a price for political correctness – not to mention something that is beyond their control.

Menzies should have just walked in and not ask for permission first. I would expect him to pull some stunt like purchase tampons from the dispenser as well.

In the video David Menzies with a queer voice purports himself to be a man in need of a womens’ washroom. Each person he speaks to is polite and respectful—he can use the family washroom, intended for parents who need to attend to a baby’s diaper. When he objects they arrange it so he can use the women’s washroom with an attendant present so no one would be caught off guard or feel threatened.

This is a sick approach to what is purported to be a news issue. It is very rare that a man would actually portray himself as trans-gendered to make a point. Honestly, I think that David Menzies should be forbidden from using public toilets.

The trans-gendered washroom issue has arisen because of a very few strange cases.

David Menzies is one of the strangest—and most perverse.

David Menzies likes to play around with gender under the guise of critiquing some current trends. Last federal election, for example, he went to a polling booth dressed in a full-length black gown. He was delighted that they let him vote, and I am not sure what choice the clerks had, but it was a sick gimmick on Menzies’ part.

For him to put on colourful hair and ask to use the ladies’ room at the Air Canada Centre is revolting. Attendants and cleaning staff and all employees of the Air Canada Centre want to provide polite and courteous service to their customers. At the toilets they do not have it easy.

There are people with diarrhea, parents with babies who need to be changed, older children who have to go and do not know the male/female protocol.

Also, at the Air Canada Centre, there are people who want to use the toilets for nefarious purposes. Some want to smoke a joint; some men want to link up for a bit of homo-erotic activity, some male-female flare-ups want to have a bit of intimacy in either washroom.

David Menzies is almost certainly embarrassed, but he should also be ashamed. If you want to role-play as a woman or as an ambiguous clown, go ahead.

This is a personal issue for you, dude. Work it out.

So —-Society is afraid to stand up to “Anything” and this is called Progressive.
They should have taken a pic, after they beat the living Jesus out you, and told the Press that you were threatening to kill Children .

Menzoid, next time, just walk into the bathroom and see if the response is the same, after women come running out screaming.

In all fairness, the staff did a terrific job; they were polite, respectful, and came up with a reasonable solution.
