This happened on Oct. 5th in Olympia, WA and has caused quite the controversy.
This 45 yr. old man, who thinks himself as a woman, was caught sitting naked exposed and so were the girls that were changing in the same locker
The girls age ranged from 6 yrs. to 17 yrs. old and they claimed that they saw him/her with his privates [male] exposed.
OLYMPIA, Wash. — A transgender woman said she was discriminated against after using the women’s locker room at Evergreen State College.
Colleen Francis was using the sauna in a women’s locker room inside the recreation center at the school late in September.
The same facility is used by two high school girls swim teams from Olympia, who also practice in the pool.
I think in a situation like this, where it makes the young girls uncomfortable, the school needs to find an alternative solution to the problem.
[According to state law, it requires equal access to state facilities regardless of gender identity.]
I can see where this may cause confusion for the young girls and for them to be uncomfortable.
And yet at the same time, causes an embarrassment and an uncomfortable situation for the transgender.
I think it's more of an awkward situation than a discrimination issue, IMO.
I'm sure some of those girls didn't know what to think when they saw a naked man sitting there, not realizing it's really a woman.
