This is a slippery slope, defend your freedom soon or the only place you'll be allowed to poop is near a toilet.

Defecation on public transit is every New Yorkers god given right.

Banning all beings, or just humans?

I mean, think of the CHUDs.

No shiat?

Are they going to open public restrooms in every station then?

No?

Then good luck with that.

Many years ago nearly all NYC subways stations had public toilets available.   When the post-war economic decline of NYC set in, the public toilets became hangouts for pervs, drug addicts, criminals and just people who liked to smash-up public property.   I'd don't know of any NYC subway stations that have functioning public rest rooms now.

As a side note, the George Washing Bridge Bus Terminal was recently renovated...first time in decades.   The renovation included some new public restrooms, which were quite nicely done.  Those restrooms are already unusable.   Pervs, drug addicts, etc.  Last time I was at the GWB Bus Terminal the men's restroom was unusable because someone deliberately flooded the thing.

Because people cant just not shiat wherever they feel like it.

Given how 2020 has gone, I'm surprised they haven't mandated it.

I stopped going to cinemas in 1995 because of all the people who would not STFU. The final straw was the lady behind me who was singing during the film: it would not have been bad had she been following a musical score within the film, but she was just singing Christian hymns at the top of her voice.

I guess that means no pizza on public transit either, since in NY the two are indistinguishable.

That legit sounds like mental illness. Not necessarily her choice of material but that she would be engaging in an activity so utterly disconnected to her surroundings and original purpose.

I'm with you though- it's been a while since I could stand being crammed in a theater with a bunch of people with no understanding of societal cooperation. I get enough of that driving.

Protip for visitors: when the subway comes into the station and every car is packed except for one, you did NOT just luck out.

Manager asked her to stop. She threatened to sue on 1st Amendment grounds she has a right to prosyletize in a public forum (here comes a quote from her crazy mouth): "just like when the Mormons ride bicycles down the street." FWIW: the film was "Tornado" ("Twister"?) w/Helen Hunt & Bill Paxton. I got my money back & left.

I got distracted by the story about The Bisexual pastor-turned-stripper. Best quote " So instead of pursuing the pole, the mother of three went all-in on religion...". No she pursed a pole alright, she has three kids.


Anyway public=bathroom equals broken. I know the bus terminal in the downtown area of Vegas has a security guard right-out side the bathrooms at all times.

As long as I can poop next to the toilet, I'm okay with this.
