Hallelujah, Our Long National Nightmare Is Over! In Canada …


Canada just set the inclusivity bar, and it’s high time we all follow. While uptight Americans are fussing and fighting over inclusive bathroom laws, they seem to have forgotten that, at most outdoor venues, NOBODY GIVES A FORK WHICH PORTA-POTTY YOU USE. In fact, there are many places gender has nothing to do with evacuating your waste; while serving my country, I — along with my fellow soldiers of all genders, persuasions, religions, faiths, education levels — peed behind trees and bushes and wherever we could (DOGS AND CATS LIVING TOGETHER), because that’s what you do when you’re playing war games in the countryside. Nobody marked a tree “Lads” or “Lassies” and nobody suffered any ill effects. But back to the news … our good friends in Canada are prepping for their national fair, aka CNE, and they’ve created the best bathroom signs you’ll ever see. Not only does it remove any concern over figuring out which direction one has to head, it clearly denotes just how unimportant gender is to relieving oneself.


Nicely done, Canada!


And now, I’m off to pee in my non-designated home bathroom, because NOBODY GIVES A FORK WHERE I PEE (well, except for the living room. And the kitchen. Maybe the bedroom …).

  • We did like seeing a restroom for everyone in a restaurant in Quebec when we visited a few months ago. It had stalls like little closets–doors and walls to the floor, I mean. My sons thought it was great they could go in with me and didn’t think a thing of it.

  • That’s pretty awesome. Seriously the bathroom debate is so ridiculous. But don’t tell my uncle that. He’ll mumble rage about sexual predators and what not.

    Also, you were in the armed forces? Thats significantly bad ass. Your the coolest fearless leader.

    I think the CNE is aware that when you are selling foods like “deep fried pickle corn dog”, “spam burger” (using 2 slices of spam instead of a bun), “philly steak eclair”, and “pulled pork cinnamon buns”… People are going to need access to as many washrooms as possible.

    • But do they have Spam sushi? The Minnesota State Fair has Spam sushi this year.

    Canadians seem like cool peeps. I think I’ll move in with them.
