It only takes a moment.

Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community. Xpress is committed to offering this platform for all voices, but when the tone of the discussion gets nasty or strays off topic, we believe many people choose not to participate. Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service. Thank you for being part of this effort to promote respectful discussion.

    I get it! Frank (now Gina) actually washed his/her/person/fill in pronoun hands after using the bathroom, and the other person did not wash their hands. Clever, working a heartfelt appeal for hygiene into said cartoon.

    I still don’t get who Sue is. Are they referring to a boy names Sue?

    And how did Frank die? I hope he didn’t suffer.

    And why isn’t Gina drooling/taking pictures/fondling an underage child like we are led to believe?

    And where the hell are the toilets?

      LOL …. boatrocker! I get a particular kick out of stream-of-consciousness type sharing.

    Wait. I’m confused. Is ‘Frank’ a born-male-turned-female, or is ‘Gina’ a born-female-turned-male, who now has to declare ‘Frank’, her new male identity, dead, because of the need to adhere to her HB2-mandated birth gender?

    And where the hell are the toilets?

    A little-discussed provision of HB2 requires that North Carolinians have all their holes Krazy Glued™ shut for good measure, so toilets are obsolete.

    You call that on-topic? Where are the moderators? I’m going on Twitter this. That’s right. Twitter. Right now. I am. Watch me.

    Why aren’t you watching me?
