Those who are in favour of this bill seem to be focused on the fact that predators could claim to be a transwoman to gain access to the ladies restroom. Aside from the fact that a gender sign has never stopped a predator EVER, they seem to have overlooked one flaw in their reasoning. THIS - transmen (born female) will be forced to use the ladies room - very masculine looking men. This will actually make it EASIER not harder for predators to gain entry - by claiming to be a trans man. Why have they not seen this gaping flaw in their reasoning?

Thanks for your opinion, Paula. Believe me, I'm against this bill - I'm of the 'pee in which room fits yr identity' camp. I just found those who aren't haven't thought this law through - and maybe pointing that out will make them rethink things.
Well Jacqui....U're assuming they THINK to begin with. I call this all knee-jerk reaction to social issues they can't (or refuse to) tolerate. and the word JERK is there for valid reason.
If I need to assume anything (as I don't like to assume), I usually like it to be positive (like assuming that they think etc). It is a knee jerk reaction to something that they've been doing for years anyway (peeing next to trans people)
I'm with you. I'm also disgusted at what the rest of this law brings through - removal of discrimination protections of LGBT in housing, employment etc - the drama surrounding the trans part of it has hidden the rest of its awfulness.
Exactly. It just struck me that while worrying about predators using the lack of a law, they hadn't thought it through and seen that a law would make it easier. I'm with u - Transwomen are women, transmen are men. Just let them pee!
It is medically accepted, + scientifically proven, that trans people exist + how/why. The solution to their 'health issue' is rectifying their outer gender to match their inner gender - not vice versa (which is more detrimental).
50 ago, the APA said homosexuality is not a mental disorder. In the past 5, same with transgenderism. Both decisions were politically motivated. The Nordic studies showing 40% trans try to die desp. surgery shows transition, due to untreated illness
Untreated depression related to discrimination against them. Which is why LGBT suicide rates are higher than general public - straight kids don't get abandoned for merely being straight. Homo is a normal variant of sexuality, not mental illness.
