More important toilet talk! Beloved Bachelor and Bachelorette producer Elan Gale took to his Twitter on Sunday, May 15, to express his disdain for North Carolina's controversial anti-LGBT bathroom bill — and proposed his own set of hilarious laws instead.

"I am vehemently opposed to a great deal of recently passed 'bathroom laws,'" Gale tweeted. "They are based in misguided fear and that's never a good start. I do think it is important to offer solutions though, so I would like to propose the following new 'bathroom laws.'"

Gale went on to share some of the most offensive behavior he's encountered in restrooms — and the list is wildly relatable.

Gale isn't the only public figure to speak out against North Carolina's bill, which was implemented by the state this past March. Just this past Saturday, May 14, legendary actor and activist Robert De Niro called out the state's latest set of laws during his speech at the GLAAD Media Awards at the Waldorf Astoria in NYC. 

"It's been quite a year. A landmark decision for marriage equality — but also the laws like the ones in North Carolina that let us know that the struggle continues," the Oscar winner said at the Ketel One-sponsored event. "It challenges us to be vigilant and aggressive in challenging all of our rights. I'm happy to be part of a community that's so active in this quest. Thank you for this honor. I'm proud to stand with you. I'm GLAAD."

Others to oppose the law publicly include Caitlyn Jenner and a slew of performers who've boycotted the state and canceled their tour stops, including Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam and tour mates Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato.

"The right thing to do was to make a firm stand and cancel the shows," Jonas, 23, told Us Weekly in an exclusive interview for Propel last month. "I think it's important, these moments where you can stand firm on something and make a real statement."
