A person should use whichever bathroom for the gender they identify with, regardless of their anatomy.

I would have loved to have privileged access to the staff bathroom when I was in school. I was terrified to set foot in the student bathroom because I was bullied relentlessly. That, and I felt much more comfortable around adults than other kids.

To each their own though.

*shrug* Stop trying to force transgender and gay people to do things that make zero sense, and they'll stop bringing lawsuits. Stop being goddamn stupid enough to fight them once they bring the lawsuits, and they won't battle you all the way to the highest court in each case.

The antigay bring this on themselves, constantly. And they are losing so frequently and so definitively at this point that it's like they're stomp-kicking their money down toilets.

Next thing you know, they'll also want to force male parents to be the only ones to change male baby diapers and female to change the female ones as well .... sheesh.

Common sense dictates a male dressed as a female should use the male restrooms in a public school. She is a boy/man regardless of how she/he identifies themselves as, and that should be respected. However the line needs to be drawn when it comes to restrooms and locker rooms where female students need not and should not be exposed to male private parts just to prove a point, period

So why do you have sex in bathrooms?

Your now showing the OPPOSITE of common sense. A person should use the bathroom conforming to their gender identity and how they are dressed.

And in fact, some jurisdictions, such a The City Of New York, have passed laws specifically stating that a person may use any bathroom at all, because some people identify differently.

The Japanese people don't give a hoot who uses which bathroom. Some Americans are really hung up on stupid things.
