AUGUSTA, Maine The Maine Human Rights Commission says a restaurant discriminated against a transgender woman by asking her to use the mens room until she had sex reassignment surgery.
The manager of a Dennys restaurant in Auburn made the request of Brianna Freeman of Lewiston after a female customer complained of having to share a restroom with "a man." Chad Cloutier, a lawyer representing the restaurant, says the woman threatened to call police.

So what’s the problem...if he/she still has male equipment then he/she MUST use the men’s room.
I don’t see what the big deal is, I’ve been to the urinal at the same time as Hillary Clinton.
Yup. The customer should have called the cops.
Now any male pervert who wants to use the ladies room can just use the “I’m pre-op” defense.
Don’t give Bill Clinton any ideas.....Ughhh ......LOL
So, now people who have surgery so they can pretend to be a member of a gender, have the ‘right’ to use any restroom the care to use?
Southpark addressed this issue nicely with an episode where Stan’s dad wanted to be a Dolphin. He had surgery to glue his legs together, got a face job to give him a snout and a blow hole - then demanded that everyone cater to his ‘Dolphin-Friendly’ demands. Among them, Dolphin-friendly cars, restooms, grocery stores ect.
Sorry, if you are not born with a penis - you are not a man. Whether you are fertile or not is immaterial. No uterous, no ovaries - you are not a woman. Now, if you want to ‘pretend’ that you are something you are not - I don’t see why my right to use the bathroom with members of my gender should be sacrificed on their “let’s pretend” personal issues.
and if the restaurant does nothing and the perv assaults the female patrons in the bathroom, the restaurant will be sued.
I have “Ethnic Identity Disorder”. I want to use the “Colored Only” rest room.
Is a transgender woman an ex-male, or ex-female, man I am so confused!
Who's was bigger?
Ready for those who complete their lopadicoffomie to demand the right to compete in female sports? 6 foot 280 lb volleyball players? How long before women who were born female just give up?
Just like lesbians have all abandoned all lesbian chat rooms because all the participants are men.
We got into this mess when we took away property owner’s rights. It is the restaurant owner’s right to decide restroom policy PERIOD Don’t like go else where or go home and whine. Once you make “discrimination” against the law you come to this.
the only way I can see to rationally address this is to designate restrooms based on sex chromosomes, e.g XX and XY.
The XY sex-determination system is the sex-determination system found in humans, most other mammals, some insects (Drosophila) and some plants (Ginkgo). In this system, females have two of the same kind of sex chromosome (XX), and are called the homogametic sex. Males have two distinct sex chromosomes (XY), and are called the heterogametic sex.
Tit for tat. I’ve been in a men’s room more than once to have a woman come in and enter a stall without a second glance. The line at the women’s room is always longer during peak times than the men’s.
