A ‘translegal’ take on the issue

I believe that a person should not have to share a public restroom with someone with different physical equipment.

I also believe that the state of North Carolina should not have the right to declare a city ordinance null and void unless it is in violation of the United States’ or state Constitution. That will be determined later.  Because of these beliefs, I guess that makes me translegal. Maybe, as Miss Jenkins from Knox Jr. High used to say, I am just “out to lunch.” Could it be that the world is just upside down?

For those of you who would rather fight than switch, legal opinions and not sexual orientation,  please take this for what it is intended. It is a poor effort at attempting to be humorous, but humor is something we need a lot more of in this world, and I am very serious about that.

Did the writer really have to include that tobacco advertisement from the ’60s?
