“Next we’ll see initiatives to abolish male and female restrooms.”

I think a restroom with a ‘?’ icon on the door will be added.

” Man walks into a ladies’ room, and all Hell breaks loose.”

I was having an insane day at work and walked into the women’s restroom where I encountered several ladies. I was standing there like a deer in headlights and they all started laughing at me as I sheepishly backed out. One of them asked “do you do this a lot?”.

A man walking into a woman's bathroom is no big deal because we all have our own stall with a closed door. A woman walking into a men's bathroom is another matter entirely. I know because I did it once.

Just pass a law that says any public use building must now have three types of restrooms-Men, Women, and Confused.

Simple answer.

Dress according to the sex you were born with.

Choose a restroom based upon the sex you were born with.

Problem solved.

Look on the bright side. You gotta go. The men's room is packed--or locked--or being cleaned. You go in the ladies' room, relieve the necessity, and, if anyone should be rude enough to raise a question, explain that you're a transsexual.

Many diseases come and go. Transsexualism might as well be one of them.

But on the other hand, why bother to have separate restrooms for men and women? In fact, why have rooms at all? Why not just have toilets and urinals in the lobbies and corridors or out on the sidewalks? What's there to hide? It's a normal function, and it would certainly be an improvement over having to step over human excrement in San Francisco.

What am I saying! Those fools on the Left would actually love to do it! NEVER make an absurd joke to those people! It just gives them ideas.

I never got the transgender thing
it is a form of mutilation

Few of these people are "post-op". Sex-change surgery (except to correct birth defects) is actually quite rare in the United States. I'm not even sure if there are any surgeons here who perform it. The hippocratic oath generally prohibits performing surgery on physically healthy people. Those serious about sex-change operations have to go overseas.

No, when we talk of "transgender people" 99% of the time we're talking about men (with all their plumbing intact) who wear women's clothing and demand we address them as women, including to allow them to use those public restrooms reserved for our wives and daughters.

Transgenders should just forgo using public restrooms, as they have rejected the choices available in natures coin toss.

There is a reason that we have gender specific restrooms and we cannot deal with providing restrooms for 15 different genders.

While Navy, I saw the most beautiful women in Singapore, only to find they had a penis (they showed us as entertainment to the sailors).

Have to be a damn long time on board before I'd find that entertaining.

Exactly.

I am a woman. If a man dressed as a woman came into a ladies’ room it is not likely that the women present would even know, as we have stalls and not urinals. Only case I can think of is if he was the height of a professional basketball player and was standing to relieve himself. But I would assume that these disturbed men would sit down to do such.

Back in the 1960s, my father traveled to France. One of his many culture shocks was using a men’s lavatory that had a woman as a steward.

I've never gotten a real definition of it that doesn't sound like a mental issue (and not in the way that people say "he likes guys? is he mental?").

"Transgender" doesn't mean (or doesn't only mean?) having had surgery. I'm told that people identify with one gender or the other, so they dress that way. I hear this, and I'm thinking "Corporal Klinger" or that female impersonator from "All in the Family". But, no, it depends on how they *feel*, which could change on a given day.

Now, sorry, but anyone who doesn't know what gender they are should not be indulged in some weird delusion. They need help because they have issues of some kind.

My father was stationed in France in the US Army in World War I. He was disgusted that a French woman sat on a toilet next to him and tried to sell him candy.

I once, in a sleep-deprived haze, went into the men’s room at Walmart and changed the diaper of whichever baby it was. Only when I went to throw the diaper away did I notice the urinals along the wall. No other occupant noticed me, even though I was wearing a dress!

The opposite happened with me. I was used to the Mens Room always being on the left in every Wal-Mart I had been in. We were on vacation and stopped to get some item, and I hit the restrooms, not bothering to read the sign. Once inside, I had a "Goll-ee, Capn Jim, there's no urinals in here. WTF?" moment.

Then it hit me and I came boiling out of the place, wide eyed in panic. Wifey was just coming over and noticed my hurried exit and had her own Moment. When I told her what happened, she went into hysterics.

So much for compassion. :-)

And some of these so-called transgendered people still have all their equipment, not done the surgery etc, but just dress up like women. IOW, they could still rape if they so desire.

One thing the homo agenda and their pet leftists have done is substitute the word “gender” (which relates to grammar) instead of the good old word “sex”.

And it is a horrible mental illness/sexual perversion and at least one big hospital that used to do “sex change” operations quit doing it because the doctors finally admitted that the whole trannie thing is a mental illness and the people after the “gender reassignment” surgery were even more miserable than before.

Transgendered (so called) people get surgery - castration and often breast implants - usually have to have other surgery as well, such as facial surgery, reduction of adam’s apple and so on. Also they have to take female hormones for the rest of their lives.

But now there’s an entire spectrum of this vile perversion/sickness so some don’t get any surgery/etc at all but just dress up as women (sometimes) and claim because they think they’re a woman, they get to be treated like on. Or men etc. Now kids are being dragged into this sickening stew of perversion and mental illness.

It’s freaking insane.

I’m sorry, if a 6’0”+ hairy ape of a “woman” goes into a ladies’ room to pee standing up, that “woman” deserves to be thrown out of the establishment.

That's very intolerant of you, Sir/Madam Neanderthal!

You need to be open and accepting of courageous Hank Bauer and Dick Butkus types who are willing to get their freak on and publicly flaunt their feminine side in a "Lady's Room." After all, isn't THIS the freedom and liberty that makes America great?

“Confused men who use the women’s bathroom in public are harassed and assaulted? “

Opposite of what happened to me. One drunk night in my debaucherous youth I accidentally stumbled into the women’s bathroom at a bar. The ladies were waiting their turn and gently turned me around, passed me down the line and back out the door.

“Transgendered” is when the genitals are removed. “Pangendered” is when the genitals are removed and sauteed in butter.

Would a Chianti be an appropriate pairing or white? (and does it taste like chicken?)

I remember how homosexuals were bullied in school. And then a few years later, government schools had homo "workshops" and "safe zones."

When the Left finds a tactic that works, they run with it until it's dead.

Unisex school bathrooms should be interesting. I wonder how many kids will be able to hold it all day?

When I was in high school, you couldn’t use most of the bathrooms because they were full of kids smoking and taking drugs. There was one, on the second floor way at the back of the Office Skills wing, that was too inconvenient for the smokers, but you might not be able to reach it during a break unless you were taking typing or shorthand.

My family hates to go on car trips with me, because I never need to stop!

Not a transgender story, but amusing.

In the early 80s, in China, a “ladies room” had stalls with very short doors-— about waist high. Problem was that the “men’s room” was just beyond this room, so the men had to pass these stalls to get to it. You can imagine the looks in the faces of the men when they realized where they were! They were just following signs to the “ men’s room” and found themselves among sitting ladies!! The looks on their faces was priceless! We told them just to keep walking!!
