I'm late to this conversation, but the argument about transgendered people using the bathroom of their choosing has always intrigued me. The "anti" argument is typically made about protecting young children (mainly little girls...nieces, daughters, grand daughters) from all of the "complicated scenarios involved with using the same restroom as someone with man parts". Now, I don't know about any of you, but I've been using public restrooms for decades. Never, in my entire life, have I EVER seen a fellow restroom-user naked. Never. Is this a common occurrence for anyone else? In all the years I've been using public restrooms, I have waited in line with other people as we await our turn for the next available stall. Then, when a stall becomes available, I go inside it and shut and lock my door. So do all the other people. I do my business, flush my toilet and leave the stall so another person can use it. Then I go to the counter where there is usually a sink, some soap and either paper towels or a hand dryer. Occasionally, after washing my hands, I might run a brush through my hair or put on some lip gloss. Then I leave. So, I guess my question is... What am I missing?? Are other women and girls being bombarded by women approaching them for sex in public restrooms? Is it common for someone to reach under the stalls and tug at your ankles, trying to lure you into their stall so they can show you their private parts? Has that ever happened to any of you?? Have any of you EVER seen a naked stranger walking around in a public restroom? Please enlighten me! What are these crazy, complicating public bathroom scenarios we are protecting our little girls from. And if you have little 4 and 5 year old girls, aren't you accompanying them to a public restroom anyway? Seriously. What's all the fuss about?
