Not at all, if they mind their own business, I'll keep to mine.
After all, they are using the facility they most relate to.
Not at all.
Probably already have pee'd next to a transwoman. Wouldn't know, and wouldn't care.
And as most people who are funny about it are 'worried about the children' - this is also coming from the mother of a 2yr old daughter.
BTW - transvestite and transgender are two different things - I've answered this in relation to transgender people in restrooms as this is the current issue.
I have probably already been in the stall next to her. It wouldn't bather me. Maybe back when I was a teenager I may have felt awkward if I knew somebody was a trans, but that I was more awkward about my looks.
Is this all you have to worry about. And your ? makes a reference to a person's personal bathroom, not a public restroom?
I'm not. Everyone is generally focused on doing their thing and getting out, so I couldn't care less who else is in the restroom when I'm using it.
I can safely say that I remain free of any fear that a "transevitite" will be lurking in my bathroom.
Well, considering that I don't eye stalk peoples junk when I head into the bathroom, an alien could come in for all I care.
I'm not fearful at all!
I'm always confused about men dressing as women on Halloween - what bathroom do they use? And who really cares? It's a place to pee or poop, not a place to inspect everyone's junk! Use a stall!
If you are a mother and worry about exposing your children to LGBTGs, then just explain it to them and accompany small children into public restrooms. You MIGHT see something, kiddo, but it's not dangerous unless they try to MOLEST you. And you should have explained "stranger danger" to your children already!
Or just never take your kids to Walmart!
Men who dress up on Halloween are still men, they will still use the men's room.
People should not worry about transvestites or transgender people in a restroom that's not their birth gender, provided they're not invading anyone else's privacy or engaging in any sort of real illegal act. There's too much focus on a small minority
Can we at least get the terminology right? A transvestite is a cross-dresser. Like a drag queen - still just a man or women who likes DRESSING UP as the opposite gender. They don't identify as that gender and don't go to any lengths to live as that gender. Transvestites are playing dress up games.
Transgender, however, refers to an individual who does not identity as the gender they were assigned at birth. This can refer to those who identify as the opposite gender or who identity somewhere in between or even as no binary gender.
However.....I'm not fearful at all. I'm a biologically female non-binary individual. I use the ladies restroom because that makes the most sense to me. If a trans-women were to be in the stall next to me (and they have been before, I have trans friends) I wouldn't be worried. They're in there to use the facilities and get out as quickly as possible - most trans people do not feel comfortable in public restrooms because majority of the time THEY are harassed about needing to pee.
Never the other way around.
You know that people that don't understand human sexuality are the most afraid of "discrepancies" in gender identification. They are illogically thinking that LGBT is "contagious", sort of like insanity. If they would only educate themselves...
Not at all. They aren't the ones that would cause a problem.
The real worry is the predators using this as their in. Transevitites don't bother me at all.
I say live and let live. My only goal when I go in there is a clean toilet to use.
I'm more concerned about the people who make a mess and a leave it for other users to get disgusted over.
How about getting fearful over those types of individuals?
