So Maines is a biological male who from an early age identified as a girl. So "HE" has male sex parts but chooses to dress like a girl. Isnt that actually a Drag Queen? Keep your male parts in the mens restroom boy! I wouldn't want my girl in the same restroom as a boy! When you whack it off and drill a hole there then I'll be ok with it. Until then keep out the girls bathroom!
Back when I was a student at a local University I knew a straight man that identified as a woman. He was transgender. What bothered me was that even though he acted like a female he was totally into chicks. The school allowed him to use the women's rest rooms which bothered me and some other women. But most people were fooled by his personality. I think it's strange that he's not even gay and he was allowed to use our room just because he puts on a dress. Sick! Not that I'm not open minded but I just don't want to share the rest room with men specially if they are straight. And even so even if a guy is gay I still don't want him in there. I think people need to be educated to the fact too that most cross dressing is done by straight men. I leaned that both in a Sexual Studies course I took as well as a program on PBS that clearly showed that dressing in drag or as some call it transvestites are predominantly heterosexual. They tend to get a sexual pleasure from it as well as experiment with their fem side. So knowing that a man in a dress can still be attracted to me just makes me feel uncomfortable as a woman sharing the same rest room.

What about lesbians who use the womenís bathroom?
What about lesbians who are not very feminine in appearance?
What is your thoughts on this?
Woman kicked out of women's bathroom
BEVERLY HILLS (KABC)-- A woman who says she was kicked out of the Beverly Hills Hotel while trying to use the restroom is demanding an apology.
Songwriter Tanya White admits she doesn't dress like the typical woman, but she says security guards went too far when they confronted her in the women's bathroom at the hotel last September.

Woman mistaken for man claims eatery deaf to her explanation, protests

Khadijah Farmer doesnít wear makeup, has close-cut hair and wears menís business clothing, so she understands when she is frequently mistaken for a man. What she refuses to tolerate is being thrown out of a Manhattan restaurant for using the womenís bathroom.
Thatís what happened to Farmer on June 24 when she, her girlfriend and another friend went to the Caliente Cab Company to eat after attending New Yorkís Gay Pride Parade. A male bouncer followed her into the womenís room, banged on the stall door and, when she came out, refused to look at her identification and demanded that she and her friends leave.

Then there are trans men who date women, and some date men, which bathroom should they use?
How would you feel if one of these men (who were born female bodied) came into the bathroom with you?

These ten men are all successful, handsome, and accomplished in their chosen fields. They were also all born as women!
