OPINION

Winston Peters gave the Bud Light drinkers a swift kick in the cods last week by introducing a Member’s Bill that will protect women’s spaces. It’s called the ‘Fair Access to Bathrooms Bill’ and it will require, primarily in the interest and safety of women and girls, that all new non-domestic publicly accessible buildings provide separate, clearly demarcated, unisex and single-sex bathrooms. Naturally, he went to X (formerly Twitter) to sledge the Opposition Leader

Labour have reacted by having the MP no one in Northcote wanted whinge to the media, defending tranny rights:

A Labour MP is accusing New Zealand First of using its controversial bathroom Bill as a way to distract from the Government’s “unpopular” decisions.  

On Friday NZ First announced its ‘Fair Access to Bathrooms’ Members’ Bill which would require new non-domestic publicly accessible buildings to provide “separate, clearly demarcated, unisex and single-sex bathrooms”.  

If passed the Bill would also introduce a fine under the Summary Offences Act for “anyone who uses a single-sex toilet and is not of the sex for which that toilet has been designated”.  

Labour’s spokesperson for Rainbow Issues Shanan Halbert told AM the divisive Bill is meant to distract people from NZ First’s performance in government.   

“It’s 2024 and rhetoric like this from political leaders doesn’t really have a place in Aotearoa New Zealand,” Halbert told AM co-host Melissa Chan-Green.  

“I just want to take the time to acknowledge the fear this does create in the rainbow community and let them know that we are here standing up for them, representing them in New Zealand and that they do have a place in our community.   

“It’s important to acknowledge that this is only a Members’ Bill, it’s an idea at this stage. But it’s actually just a distraction from the unpopular things NZ First and this government are doing.” 

He went on to accuse NZ First of wanting “nothing more than for this to turn into a big culture war”.  

“It’s a distraction,” he added.

What Shanan Halbert has failed to grasp is that most Kiwis think trannies demanding access to women’s bathrooms is creepy, and Labour defending it makes them look as creepy as an old man in a raincoat at a playground.

Winston Peters is on to a winner here and Labour is on to a loser.

Women in particular, you know, the good old fashioned ones, don’t want men in frocks in their bathrooms. They really don’t.

But I don’t know what is worse; blokes pretending to be women, or women who call themselves trans allies. Here’s an exchange where an “ally” is being schooled on comments about the tranny who now heads up a UK football club.

So, I really hope Labour goes balls-deep sticking up for trannies. I really do…see where it gets them.
