When a woman told the staff about him, he proclaimed: “The law has changed and I have a right to be here.”
Others protested Monday in Olympia, claiming the new law has too many loopholes that could allow predators into locker rooms.
“I would not feel safe in a locker room showering next to an anatomically male person,” said one woman at Monday’s protest
However, people KIRO 7 spoke with outside of the pool did not seem concerned about allowing transgender people into locker rooms.
“We need to be open to it,” said one woman who comes to the rec center for yoga. “People need to be able to identify however they feel, and I support that.”

If the state is going to legally recognize transgender equality then they must accommodate the consequential infrastructure and introduce a 4th bathroom/changeroom/restroom - currently the state has male, female and disabled facilities so it stands to reason that they also accommodate for transgender.
It would be unacceptable for the majority of citizens to simply and suddenly have to give up their rights for privacy and not feel intimidated because a minority wants equal treatment - the state should introduce recognized gender infrastructure for this demographic if they have introduced other legally recognized protections for them.
Getting tired of the stalls in the boys' room being occupied, Eric Cartman puts a bow on his hat and claims to be transgender in order to use the girls' toilets at school.
Principal Victoria is unimpressed, but Mr. Garrison advises her to give in to avoid the scandal Cartman is almost certain to cause. The girls however are disgusted at Cartman's presence in their toilets, so the school compromises by installing a very fancy transgender toilet in the janitor's room.
Wendy uses Cartman's private bathroom by claiming to be transgender herself, using the name "Wendyl". Cartman is furious at losing his private room. After angrily confronting Principal Victoria, Cartman takes his anger out on Wendy's boyfriend Stan by saying dating her/him makes him gay. Stan, now confused, attempts to discuss gender identity with his father, but Randy misunderstands and instead reveals to Stan that he is Lorde. He explains that he started using the women's bathroom at work out of convenience, pretending to be a woman, but eventually found the bathroom to be conducive to creating music. He even shows Stan how he uses home studio software to make himself sound like a girl on a song called "Feeling Good on a Wednesday". This leaves Stan even more confused. At the Geological Survey, Randy/Lorde's boss proposes a separate bathroom to appease the other women at the office; however, Randy/Lorde says the bathroom is critical for his/her musical creations. E! News reports that Lorde is abandoning music and Spin will reveal the singer's secret.
Cartman teases Stan about his gender confusion issues, coining the insult "cissy", based on the term "cisgender". Sharon comforts Randy and indirectly encourages him to continue to express himself as Lorde. Randy completes another, more personal song with lyrics that include "just push, push" and "help me unload the car". Enjoying the music, the female geologists decide to accept Randy's transgenderism, and Brandon Carlile (the Spin magazine reporter) deletes his exposé on Lorde. The school decides to get rid of the transgender bathroom and allow anyone to use the bathroom with which they are most comfortable, thus foiling Cartman's plans.
For those who are bothered by transgender people, a new designation is made to keep them away from the normal people who do not care: cissy bathrooms. Forced by Butters to use that bathroom, Stan begins to appreciate it and sings a song similar to Lorde's.
but this is America so i guess your free to do what you want.
