Transgender Bathroom Rights – Your Thoughts? [POLL]
Apparently lawmakers don't have enough issues to discuss, so the topic of the day is transgender usage of bathrooms/locker rooms - regarding which they can use.
The discussion is regarding transgender people (Sourcing Google: denoting or relating to a person whose self-identity does not conform unambiguously to conventional notions of male or female gender.) and their rights to use a bathroom of the opposite physical sex than they are.
The Minnesota State Office Building in St. Paul hosted an informational hearing on a bill that would only allow people born of the same gender to use the same restrooms and locker rooms. The full proposed legislation can be found HERE.
How would you feel if you were using the locker room and you saw somebody of the opposite sex using the same locker room? It's quite obvious who's born a male or female in that situation. How is every person in that locker room to know that other person is "transgender"? I see why there's a meeting of the minds on it, but it's likely the majority answer is going to lean towards what most people would desire, which is to not allow the transgender to choose the restroom or locker room they would like to use. What are your thoughts on this?
