Again, the reasoning provided for not having Unisex bathrooms is a personal comfort one, and not one based in reality of any kind.
Show me stats that kids and adults are being raped by sexual predators
Study after nationwide study (3) has yielded estimates of male homosexuality that range between 1% and 3%. The proportion of lesbians in these
studies is almost always lower, usually about half that of gays. So, overall, perhaps 2% of adults regularly indulge in homosexuality. Yet they
account for between 20% to 40% of all molestations of children. Child molestation is not to be taken lightly. Officials at a facility which serves
about 1,500 runaway youngsters each year estimate that about half of the boys have been homosexually abused and 90% of the girls heterosexually
assaulted. (27) Investigation of those suffering severe chronic mental illness implicates child molestation as a primary cause (45% of Bigras et
al’s (28) patients were homosexually abused). If 2% of the population is responsible for 20% to 40% of something as socially and personally
troubling as child molestation, something must be desperately wrong with that 2%. Not every homosexual is a child molester. But enough gays do molest
children so that the risk of a homosexual molesting a child is 10 to 20 times greater than that of a heterosexual.

So here we are in a discussion about transgenders and unisex washrooms is brought up... and you're saying homosexual men sexually assault children
more frequently than heterosexual men.
You are asserting an illusory non-fact, and I'm sure that's shocking very few people. These are homosexual acts of molestation offenses, and are
mostly committed by proclaimed heterosexual men. So let's throw them into this 2% statistic as if it holds any weight? Forgive me if that comes off as
nothing but sheer stupidity.
From your own source:
Ann Landers (1) says the statement “Homosexuals are more inclined to molest children sexually than heterosexuals” is false. The American
Psychological Association has sponsored a work that asserts: “Recognized researchers in the field on child abuse,… almost unanimously concur that
homosexual people are actually less likely to approach children sexually.”
Even more ridiculous is the insertion of this into a thread about transgenders. Gay men and transgendered people are two completely different
