Anyone with half a brain (so that rules out Republican politicians) could see that this is what would happen under these so called bathroom laws. One commentator on the Pink News article said that if you’re a girl and you dress like a man then you should expect this. Bull Shit! She’s a teenager for fucks sake! You should think yourself lucky that her response was audible and not just a grunt.
I also think the voice of the person presumably holding the camera sounds like someone O know. Is that you Cathy Brennan?
What we see of this video is the girl being asked to leave as she didn’t have id, but we don’t see what lead upto the police arriving to question her. Did someone call the toilet police, was someone causing trouble, we’re the police already there. Hopefully more facts about this will come out in time.
How many more is it going to take before the government will make the right changes? This was only reported 2 hours ago on the 19th November yet she was found on the 13th. I know there was the Paris terrorist attacks and Children in Need on Friday, but a week for this to be reported?
Read the story and watch the video here Fox News toy story
I don’t watch Fox News (mainly because I live in the UK and have serious news reporters I can watch / listen to) but have heard lots about it, but news reporters should properly research and report a story, from this video, they’ve not done either properly. One of the panel said he has to ask in the opticians whether certain glasses were male or female, and I’m thinking 1 – should’ve gone to Specsavers, and 2 – they’re glasses! They don’t have a gender, if you like them them buy them, if you don’t then keep looking for a pair you do like (it’s always puzzled me that when you’re buying new glasses and you try them on to see how they look, how are you supposed to know how they look on you when they don’t have your prescription lenses in them!!)
Kids will head straight to the toy department and will find what they want, and if a boy wants a Barbie or a girl wants an Action Man / GI Joe, then they won’t have that immediate feeling of stigma that can be attached with that. They’re friends may make them feel bad about it, but that attitude isn’t coming from them, it’s coming from their parents.
Fox News, don’t treat you’re audience like they’re stupid, and they won’t act stupid. If you want to buy a toy for a boy or a toy for a girl, look in the toy section, you’re an adult and it isn’t that difficult. You manage to do your weekly food shopping I imagine, and supermarkets are constantly moving things around. Yes that bugs the shit out of people, but you survive, you don’t starve to death because they’ve put the cheese where the toilet rolls used to be, so stop you’re whining and grow up for fucks sake.
Some of these are really nice, not as dramatic a change as I was expecting, but I think her original image is deliberately a “blank canvass”, and you can see in the photo how uneven / imperfect her complexion is. That’s not me being nasty or anything just commenting, in fact she says that herself. I think my favourites are India, Ukraine, the UK, Romania & Chile although the UK one looks very aurbrushed. My least favourite are Argentina, United States, Australia & Germany. What did the USA think she is??? They’ve made her look so unhealthily skinny. The German photo is just badly done and I think they let a 7 year old do her make up in Australia.
A lot of the rest are very neutral, and have gone for a more natural look which I like, but you can’t really tell what they’ve done, I suppose that’s kinda the point though. I wonder if her image was used in an ad campaign how different the images would be again? I think it would all depend on what was been advertised I guess.
