I comprehended was Shagbag was conveying. I want to know, who do you expect to be policing the restrooms to determine if only diagnosed transgenders are using the facilities?

Because you are not uncomfortable with who is sharing your powder room space doesn't not mean everyone is, that it isn't a compromising situation, or that those with ill-intent would not use this to their advantage.

It is a safety issue.

"Don't twist my words. If you reread what I said you will see I said perverts will use this as an excuse to use the opposite sexes restroom to satisfy their twisted perversions. I never said anything negative about transgender people"
How could perverts use this as an excuse to use the opposite sexes restroom? You're implying only transgenders (since these folks will be the only ones allowed to use the opposite sexes restroom) are taken advantage of their diagnosis to be peeping toms. Maybe write your sentences in a comprehensive or concise way if you don't want to be misunderstood.

"Maybe this person thinks or feels they are the opposite sex but if they are allowed to use the restroom what will prevent perverts from doing the same?"
So you're implying all transgenders are perverts using gender dysphoria as a cover-up?

I wouldn't have a problem with sharing the restroom with her neither should anyone else. I do have a problem if my privacy is being violated, like a person trying to peek underneath or over the stall. That's when we are going to have a problem regardless if you are biologically a female or a trans.

That's my point. You allow people to choose their restroom then you will drastically increase the chance of your privacy being invaded. This is a public safety issue instead of a civil rights issue.

"If you are a woman or have a daughter would you feel comfortable sharing the restroom with a man that claims to be a woman?"

"We live in a country where every minority demands a special treatment."
Who is demanding special treatment in this story? This guy is wanting nothing more than his right to use the men's restroom.Transhumanist (view profile)

There has to be a line drawn somewhere and the line should be what's between your legs. Maybe this person thinks or feels they are the opposite sex but if they are allowed to use the restroom what will prevent perverts from doing the same? If you are a woman or have a daughter would you feel comfortable sharing the restroom with a man that claims to be a woman? Issues like this always have unintended consequences.

I'd recommend grabbing a thorough understanding of the difference between sex and gender before speaking on a subject you barely know.

I can't watch any news station that wouldn't take a side or at least report the issue at hand I don't have the option to ignore it or let it go.

As far a a special treatment, whether this person likes it or not, they were born with the anatomy of a female whether they like it or not. Differences in bathrooms are meant to keep genders apart no matter what you may identify as.

"Or it could be a number of people tired of seeing this dumb bull**** getting spread everywhere."
I don't understand how it is dumb when his rights are being violated. I'm sure many people in this community would have be outraged as well if their rights were being taken away.
"Live your life as you want but quit pushing it down everyone's throats"
You can simply ignore this by not reading the article or by changing the channel on the television, problem solved.
"We live in a country where every minority demands a special treatment."

Can the he-she use the urinal while standing? If not, then back to the other bathroom for you

He was a she? That may explain the fart, they opted to blow dry after the shaking didn't work...

Actually, when I was in school just passing the boy's restroom the smell would almost knock a body down.

Stay with the girl's room, and be thankful.

Let the fella use the boy's bathroom.

At least he will be sitting down and not missing the toilet like most guys

Virginia student Gavin Grimm isn't allowed to use the men's bathroom at his school. He informed his school that he's a boy and was originally given permission by his principal to use the men's bathroom. But now the school board has said he can't anymore after people complained. Doesn't it seem like school boards are just constantly trolling?

Now poor Gavin usually waits all day to go to the bathroom after he leaves school. That is horrible! Can high school authority figures stay out of people's bathroom business? And that includes making almost-adults ask permission from a teacher to use the toilet, which is also ridiculous and happens at most high schools. Like, what would happen if everyone just let each other use bathrooms as they please? Oh, nothing?

According to New York magazine, the ACLU is arguing that this is sex-based discrimination and violates Gavin's constitutional rights. High school is always finding new ways to be horrible.
