Chicken-Fried News: Pissed off

Many believe Oklahoma Sen. Joseph Silk, R-Broken Bow, pooh-poohed civil rights for many residents last week when he introduced Senate Bill 1014.

The bill would restrict some LGBTQ community members from deciding which pots they can piss in.

Senate Bill 1014, if passed, would make it “unlawful for a person to use a gender-specific restroom when that person’s biological gender is contrary to that of the gender-specific restroom.”

In other words, he wants door signs to more clearly reflect which sex is written on someone’s birth certificate before they can legally drop a deuce.

Silk’s bill proposed no penalty or fine for those who might break the law.

SB 1014 would, however, require the Oklahoma State Board of Health to “promulgate rules,” meaning it would be the board’s responsibility to find ways to educate the public about and enforce the law.

As news of the proposed law hit media outlets last week, Oklahoma residents noticed a marked drop in water pressure as they flushed their toilets en masse to make a statement about where they believe this bill belongs.

That or, you know, it’s flu season. At Chicken-Fried News, we choose to believe the former.

The first Senate session of 2016 is Feb. 1.
