No. The majority is inconvenienced every single time they use a public restroom because they know that there could be someone of the opposite **** in there with them. Just as the minority is inconvenienced every single time they use a public restroom because they know there could be someone of the same sex, but opposite gender in there with them. It's the same **** thing. Remember, it's not like it's "this bathroom, in this location". In order for this to work at all, it would have to be "every bathroom, everywhere". Otherwise, the transgendered person would run into the same issue at a restaurant, or a business, or an airport, or bus stop, or gas station, etc, etc, etc.

I'm assuming we're not just saying this one school changes it's rules, right? Cause that's not going to really fix the problems the kid is going to have if using a restroom with other biological males is such a problem.

I'm just talking about public restrooms. No one was talking about clothes or mannerisms. We were specifically speaking of a "girl" being uncomfortable being required to use a men's restroom because she has the physical genitalia of a male. And I'm comparing that to everyone else being uncomfortable with the idea of some of the opposite **** using their restroom, regardless of what that person's gender identity is.

If we change society, everyone is better for it. We've done it for race. We can do it for this, too.


If we change the transgender's irrational fears and needs, everyone is better for it too. Only that's a much more achievable goal.

And this is *nothing* like race.
