Colleen Westendorf: Rob Anders' "Bathroom Bill" Theory Belongs in the Toilet
MP Rob Anders is currently objecting to Bill C279, that would enshrine the same rights for trans people that everyone else (in theory) already is entitled to. He claims that "the bill's goal is to give transgendered men access to women's washrooms. Contrary to Anders' feeble attempts to narrow the discussion, bill C279 is about much more than "bathroom privileges." Moreover, using that kind of transphobic, intentionally myopic language reduces people to body parts. C279 is about filling the gaps in legislation that was designed in intent to prevent discrimination, but currently remains dangerously incomplete.
Daniel D. Veniez: Don't Blame Trudeau for Being Popular

Christopher Sands: Presidential Debates: Like the Stanley Cup of Politics
Last night the first presidential candidates' debate of the 2012 election took place in Denver. For political junkies the debate was jarring: neither debater behaved according to the expectations set over the past several months. Obama was tongue-tied at several points. Romney seemed presidential. It is the phase of U.S. presidential campaigns that most closely resembles the Stanley Cup finals. Romney has the advantage for now, but Obama has been to the finals before and is the reigning champion. Game on!
Randall Craig: Facebook Has a Billion Users, but Numbers Aren't Everything
Facebook just announced that it now has one billion active users -- an astounding number. But whether your business' number hovers at 100 or a billion, this singular measure of "success" is of little value, and at best misleading. Is a billion users a significant milestone? Absolutely. Does it matter? Not in the least.
