It's already a federal law that you can't discriminate trans people from using the bathroom they identify with. Do you not get this?


NO, its not.

Only if you are a Federal Employee.

There are no federal anti-discrimination LGBT laws in this country (except as a Federal employee).

Again your from the UK? There are unisex bathrooms everywhere in Europe.


Nope, from the US, and I think the family restroom is the answer, but it's not about that. Transgender have been offered family or unisex facilities and turned them down as "discriminatory" here in the states. They WILL compel us to accept them in the restrooms of their choice or nothing similar to how gays will compel everyone to accept their marriages and participate or nothing.

There is no concept of accommodation.

Not necessarily true.

LGBT will not be FORCED to use special designated restrooms.

There is no issue with them using a family restroom. But, it is discriminatory to FORCE them to only use a specifically designated restroom.

I mean it's not like the boy's room in the school isn't right next door the girls rooms in most schools is it. a single occupant bathroom, with a locking door would be the most secure, even for the kids to a point... the only way I say to a point is that I can see kids locking themselves in and refusing to come out if they are mad at mommy or daddy!

Federally they must be treated equal as anyone else.

In other words, they can not be fired for the same reason a straight person can not be fired. If the reason applies to a straight person, it also applies to an LGBT person.

But, (at this time) discrimination laws for LGBT are by state. (unless you are a federal employee).

Some states have zero LGBT protection. An LGBT person can be fired just for being LGBT

Oh look - - the Governor of Mississippi just signed into law the same thing as NC - - only worse.

Miss. Gov. Signs Sweeping Anti-LGBT 'Religious Liberty' Law

YAY! RELIGION



The first-of-its-kind law will take effect in July, and allow businesses, individuals, and religiously affiliated organizations to deny service to LGBT people, single mothers, and others who somehow offend an individual's "sincerely held religious belief." It also directly targets transgender residents, effectively claiming that one's sex assigned at birth is immutable, and will be the only gender recognized by the state.

pay pal can chose to set up their shop where ever they wish to, and well, if they decide that a new law that is passed in the state is not to their liking, they also have the freedom of speech and can explain why they have opted out of their plans!!!

From the article
Federal law settles debate over transgender students and bathroom use, advocates say

The reason: Title IX, the civil rights law that protects students from sex discrimination in K-12 districts that receive federal funding, extends to transgender students.

So the state of NC may loose federal funding for schools and roads over this. The NC law is in direct conflict with public schools and public funding for universities.

Oh, well, then why am I compelled to use the ladies' room? Maybe because I am a lady.

If they are transgender and it is physically/mentally ambiguous, they should be relegated to the unisex or family restroom.

If some of us are put in designated rooms and it is not discrimination, then it isn't discrimination to assign them a room either.

I'm sorry but it seems to me that single occupant bathrooms would be more secure, regardless if they were open to either sexes, explain to me why they wouldn't be??

I'm personally for single locking stalls in a clearly visible location.

Now, think MONEY. What would be the cost of redesigning all the restrooms in the UISA?

Store front space is expensive because of exposure. Should we give restrooms the store front space and tuck the business somewhere in the back?

Also, any locked door is a place of privacy. You will have homeless sleeping in the stalls. You will have drug dealers doing business in the stalls. You will have prostitutes doing their business in the stalls.

I know, cuz that's exactly what happens in the restrooms at the beach here.

Practicality says - - just get over it. Everyone has to pee.

They are and a lot of places have them and nothing bars anyone from using them whether you are using them for family reasons or not.

I've used the family restroom myself a time or two for convenience and privacy reasons. My husband and I have also used one when we need to take our young son to the potty, too. No one gets upset either way, so the idea of expecting the family restroom to be the designated restroom for transitioning transgenders would be the common sense approach.

What about the inverse?

Do you really think it is safe to send a physical woman into a restroom with a bunch of men? I am thinking of some of the travel stops I've been at ... not sure it would be safe for any physical female no matter how butch she looked.

Yet there is a real danger where kids undress in front of adults attracted to their gender for them to be molested.

I will not let a man be alone with my daughter in the bathroom. If she is, I will tell her to treat him like a rapist and F him up. Maybe he can cry about gender violence after. I wonder how often that happens for this simple reason.

No one is risking themselves over this mess.

Sorry. Common sense and the real world.





Show an example of this being a widespread problem, and then maybe you'll have a point. Right now, you appear to be heavily speculating based on fear and ignorance though.


first, show the unavailability of bathrooms to be a widespread problem.

Will you spend the extra $15000 to renovate your business and build a bathroom for the 1% of people who are transgender and somehow cannot deal with bathrooms the way they have been for the last 80 years?

Perhaps there can be a government subsidy for this, paid for by those rich folk.

I think if it looks like a woman, and I can't tell the difference, then she should use the woman's rooms.
I would not feel completely safe using a men's room, and most trans females dress more feminine than I do, and wear more makeup than me also. They should be using the women's room if there's no family or gender neutral rooms.
