    the southern poverty law center is also a hate group, just from the opposite side of the political spectrum. They hate Mens and Womens locker room signs b/c it confuses .05% of the population who are already pretty confused about what they are to begin with. I hope their next fight will be against Red, Yellow, and Green traffic lights, a large percentage of the population is color blind and they cant be sure what to do at intersections, we need to replace them with shapes like square, triangle, and circles.

    • Trollie the Troll

      Trollie hates confusion. Trollie want shapes instead of colors. Meh wrong though, Stop should be octogon dum dum.

    No idea what The Traditional Values Coalition is, but SPLC is not an unbiased source. It’s admitted that it doesn’t have the capacity to address left-wing hate groups, which is fine because it’s a resource issue, but that doesn’t excuse it trying to pass itself off as non-partisan and unbiased in this case.

    • Ming the Merciless

      Basically, it is a left-wing hate group masquerading as a watchdog.
