IS THIS SIGN FOR REAL?                     


Is this sign for real?

Stu Tarlowe

This sign was depicted in an e-mail I got today from the Media Research Center, urging me to sign the American Family Association's petition for a boycott of Target stores because of Target's capitulation to the demands of the "gender identity" bullies.

I have to wonder, though, if the sign is real.

Having studied Graphic Design, I have to admire the way the sign addresses the matter of those who are "gender confused" (although, having studied English, I'm not pleased at how the word "gender" has been hijacked and misused; strictly speaking, only words have gender; living things have sex, and there are only two choices).

The figure depicted (by combining the "man" and "woman" symbols) as half-man, half-woman is a logical solution to a visual communication challenge. But one can't help but wonder what the LGBTQSTFU "community" thinks of it. Do they think it's "respectful" enough of their "gender identity or expression" issues?

And WTF does a person in a wheelchair have to do with "gender identity or expression"?

Anyway, real or not, in actual use on actual restroom doors or not, I think the "half-man, half-woman" graphic should see far greater exposure, whenever the need arises to refer to the LGBTQSTFU community or any of its members. If they don't like that graphic, maybe they can come up with another one, like just a big ol' question mark.

It's real Stu ...
Denver: Gender-Neutral Restroom SignsDelivered

On October 28, the city of Philadelphia passed an LGBTQ-inclusive reform stating that all city-owned buildings must be equipped with gender-neutral restroom signs. It’s no surprise that Denver has begun to follow suit, starting with their youth. Using designated restrooms can be a real challenge for those who don’t identify with either “men” or “women” restroom signs. MyDoorSign is partnering with organizations in Colorado to resolve this issue through the creation, production, and distribution of a line of all-gender restroom signs.
