People have been fighting for trans* rights for a very long time in the United States and across the world.
The way I read this specific OP is that a columnist argued that essentially pubescent girls must get over their discomfort of male genitalia in the locker-room.
The administration’s letter addresses that uneasiness head on, at least with regards to schools. The letter includes a 25-page attachment detailing “emerging practices” at U.S. districts that already are supporting transgender students. Along with policies on issues such as dress codes and transgender student records, the document provides examples of how districts address the privacy needs of all students in bathrooms and locker rooms.

A friend of ours runs security at 3 Wal Marts and he's done Wednesday because he doesn't need the stress, He's already retired but was bored. he told us men are using all the restrooms so the women wait in line for the family one in the back of the store. Men get in it's line but it's a single and they are holding it forever or 2 men go in at once.
Business is falling fast
Perhaps different things work in different countries, but at schools in SA, I doubt it would work at present. It would lead to violence in places, I think.
As a male I was hardly comfortable in the men's locker-rooms, let alone somebody of the opposite gender in there.
I agree. At least, I agree that you can't force them to accept the idea.
My point stands though that you're never going to force it on conservative cultures or religions.
Obviously. That applies to just about everything, doesn't it?
I say again, good luck in trying to please everybody.
Indeed. You can't beat people up because they are different from you, for example.
It doesn't guarantee that you can do whatever you like.

Because I'm a member of ATS, and have a right to speak from my scenario.
Sometimes I think it's only relevant to my country, but at other instances I think it's relevant generally.
I let my fellow ATS members decide.
But that's me, and I'm a member.
