People are just ignorant. Those comments give me mixed feelings. I feel outrage but can't help but laugh at the stupidity sometimes. I also have mixed feelings about
this bill. I do not live in Washington but I do have Crohn's. I believe that it would have been better to get the message out about
the need of
open restrooms for Crohnies to the public. Even if this bill passed, many businesses wouldn't even know about
it and refuse admittance anyway. And then what, they get fined? What good does that do anyone? The hope is that eventually businesses will catch on and spread the word, which would've best been done through the media in the first place. I realize that much is being done to inform the public about
Crohn's. But I do not believe in this legislation. I believe it only leads to more animosity and confusion on the side of those who do not understand, which is sad. Perhaps the best that can be done is to try to educate them.
There's a comment on that page that refers to Crohnies as a "special class of people." As if we're a special interest group who's going to take over America... starting with your restrooms. Moron.
