‘Are you the bathroom monitor?’ Auditor Dougall films attack of trans bathroom bill in the john
John Dougall, Utah’s state auditor and candidate for U.S. Congress, criticizes the sponsor of Utah’s 2024 transgender bathroom ban, alleges the law was just for show.

A toilet flushes. Then, Utah Auditor John Dougall steps out of a stall.

“Are you the bathroom monitor?” Dougall asks viewers of a video posted to his campaign account on X evening. “I actually thought the Legislature assigned me to be the bathroom monitor.”

The one-minute clip released on Monday — the first day of lawmakers coming together for interim meetings since this year’s session ended — is the latest in a feud that’s erupted between the auditor and Republican lawmakers since a transgender bathroom ban took effect earlier this month.

“We have a piece of legislation that the sponsor doesn’t seem to actually understand,” Dougall says in the video, his voice echoing in the small space. “She implied that I didn’t care about women’s safety in bathrooms — nothing could be further from the truth. And if this bill were actually about making girls safer, don’t we think that the Legislature could actually spend some money retrofitting bathrooms and providing greater privacy and further safety?”

Dougall continues, “Instead, it looks like this piece of the bill was really more about show than substance. But it wouldn’t be the first time the Legislature did something like that, would it?”
Question: How will they identify a trans person?
Their dragnet will only bring trans people who cannot blend in and women who look masculine. I pity the woman who is large boned, muscular, and tall they will be caught up in the web.

  1. I think about this a lot sometimes. If someone made a show of how many people "pass", would they lose their minds even more? I freak myself out thinking about the Draconian measures they might implement in that case. It would be sooo much easier for them to just pony up some money for more unisex bathrooms, and safety measures for unisex bathrooms, to protect US from the people who would do us harm in our own bathrooms.
