Hmmmm... let's define terms. "Perv'd on" indicates perversion, not just attraction. That's a big difference. People will think what they will, and as long as they keep it to themselves and keep it to thoughts (not actions), it's not a problem.
So, yes, chances are that lesbians will find themselves admiring other women in the bathroom and other private spaces. It is what it is and isn't a problem unless and until they get pervvy and make it a problem. Statistically (and criminally) speaking, that's a guy thing... not a lady thing.
And, again, at least women have a fighting chance with another women. If worse comes to absolute worst, then a woman's chances are much better defending herself against another woman, lesbian or not.
I will also note though that violence by women who identify as trans and take testosterone may very well increasingly become a bigger problem. At least one study (I believe it focused on transgender prisoners in England) found that violent and sexual crimes increased among women prisoners who identify as transgender.
TBH, I can't say I blame you for feeling the way you do but frankly, I think it's mostly an emotional response.
Which (BTW) I also don't blame you for. I don't recognize your user name and can only judge based upon the posts I see directly above but it seems like (from them) that you obviously have some issues with men so I'll leave it at that.
A lot of women do. Some of it I agree with and some of it is irrational misandry. Which (again) is kind of a predictable and understandable response to the state of the world we live in.
I would suggest (however) taking a chill pill and explaining your opinion without the histrionics.

I will not converse with people who go out of their way to speak to me disrespectfully in an attempt to mock and belittle me by misgendering me.

thats not me saying uncle sam should provide me with a job just because i'm trans, but that I can't be fired because I am....which is still very legal in half the country and a real possibility for trans and gay people.

Yea except for that whole freedom to not be discriminated against for no other reason than because your trans.
emotional blackmail is used to make the general population believe it's just hateful transphobes who are the problem.
I'm about to use some hate speech so plug your ears ladies. Yeah there is something out there that I hate. I hate the fact that boadicea needed to actually state that they are not a transphobe and do not hate trans identifying people, because common sense shouldn't need a disclaimer.
I understand why God didn't allow me to have any kids yet. I would go insane because doing whats best for your kid is now against the law. It would be Ruby Ridge 2.0
Pre-Bruce Jenner, was pretty much a happy medium. People would quietly get the surgery or dress as the opposite sex with the support of close friends ideally, and get on with their lives. Socially or culturally there is a long and varied tradition of a 'third' sex (even discussed in Plato's Symposium), or Eunuchs, or lady-boys or what have you. Is it the norm? No, but not so far out there either. My point, cultures can make room for 'transgender' people, but in a way where it is not promoted among children or minors (I suspect the mothers want children of the opposite sex more than that children are actually gender confused), or where men who make only half-assed attempts at passing are legally allowed in women's spaces, or where there is flat-out science denial.
