... and telling people they can use whichever restroom they're most comfortable in is sane?

why do the needs of a 100 outweigh the needs of the tens of thousands?

The voters should vote this measure down or we will have to start building restrooms for He, She, and It.

Have you ever seen a handicapped stall? What exactly are your "needs" and how does this issue affect your needs in the least?

"It" is not a pronoun used for humans.
And Transgender issues are completely separate from moral issues.

This is disgusting. All you liberal idiots have caused this. Anything to kiss the rear ends of the gays. You people sicken me. On judgement day there will be the ultimate price to pay. You reason there is no God, thus no eternal punishment. But, you are wrong. The penalty for the promotion of these lifestyles is eternal damnation in a lake of fire. You all are sick bastards exposing children to these freaks. You keep pushing and pushing and one day society will push back, and hard, and if you thought your rights were being violated now, well, just wait.
Oh, bring it! We "keep pushing and pushing" do we? Hummmpphhh... seems to me we are merely fighting our way out of the corner: the entire GLBT community. We have rights, equal rights under the law. You can threaten us, you can spew your bigotted garbage all you want, but the minute you touch any of us or try to punish us for our efforts to win equality -- you lose both the right to call yourself an American, and a free man. Too many of us have been harrassed, abused, discriminated against and killed every year by ignorant bigots such as yourself. Those days are over and we are standing up. Change is coming, and we do this for the next generation. SO that attitudes such as yours will just be archaeic reminders of the days before gays, lesbians, bi-sexuals and trans-sexuals won equality under the law and in society.

"... which now allows the city's roughly 100 transgender residents to use..."

Someone keeps track of this?

What a nutcase. I'm sorry (not really) you wasted your whole life on fairy tales, but you don't have to get defensive about it. Just admit your mistakes, change your stupid ways, and move on.

Conservatives are always reacting to new ordinances. Why not be proactive and let the other side be reactive.

People tire of the battle. Lead the way, don't follow.

There's support out there.

People don't choose to be handicapped as they do transgender.

The City Of New York has had this law for a long time and I haven't heard of any problems.
