Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has not been shy about his opposition to transgender individuals using the bathroom of their choice.

After President Obama instructed all public schools to allow trans students access to the restroom that aligns with their gender identity, Patrick told reporters it was "the end of public education" and likened the prospect of losing federal education funds over the issue to "blackmail."

On Tuesday, however, Patrick took things a step further, tweeting the following message:

Was he issuing an invitation to come and use the bathroom? Was this a call for some sort of sexually aggressive illicit restroom liaison? Are we even looking at a bathroom at all? Squint your eyes and maybe it's an unhappy couple in bed. Or a pair of mint-condition heteronormative action figures still in the original packaging.

If you absolutely must throw down a Texas-sized gauntlet over where you think people with genitals different than your own should be allowed to take a shit—please, at least be a little more specific.
