The hypocrisy of Springsteen’s transgender bathroom crusade

NY Post’s columnist Andrea Peyser has written a killer piece that highlights how Bruce Springsteen and others are making fools of themselves taking up a ridiculous cause they don’t understand. 

Bruce Springsteen is a megatalented rock star of limited intelligence and outsize cultural influence. Now The Boss is throwing a massive hissy fit in protest of a North Carolina law that instructs individuals as to where they can and cannot pee and poop.

It’s come to this, tinkle-lovers. A millionaire music legend and self-styled ‘’humanitarian’’ who can afford to relieve himself in the privacy of his New Jersey mansion demands potty parity for people who claim they “identify’’ as belonging to a gender at odds with their genitalia.

It’s enough to make me long for the quiet dignity of Caitlyn Jenner.

No, wait! The narcissistic reality-TV babe, born the male athlete Bruce Jenner, has lately forced me to contemplate her nether regions by wavering publicly over whether she’ll undergo a sex-change operation.
