Again, are you male or female?

I've been in plenty of locker rooms (again, I am a female) at gyms and before that, in school. There were always places where we could change that didn't put us right in front of everyone else as we did so. Either changing room or bathroom stalls. I am almost certain that most transgender persons are NOT going to whip out their genitalia and swing it around for all to see. Instead, I am fairly certain, they will either use a changing room or even not strip down naked. They are already uncomfortable with the bodies they were born with, they aren't going to be going around flaunting that body in front of anyone in a locker room.

Seriously, the way some people obsess over other peoples' bodies just amazes me. The faux concern for those pre-teen girls is underwhelming.

There are a lot of open locker rooms and showers without individual changing stalls. Pretty much everything built through the 90's.

Men's locker rooms or women's locker rooms? I've been in plenty of women's locker rooms and all of them have had either changing rooms or stalls that someone can change in. Most of them also have shower stalls rather than group shower areas.

If they are uncomfortable with adults, they shouldn't be in an adult's changing room.

If they are uncomfortable with boys... Well that already happens. Moms all over this country shepherd their young sons into restrooms and locker rooms with them to keep them away from the REGULAR OLD PERVERTS ALREADY ASSUMED TO BE IN THE MEN'S FACILITIES!!

the bottom line is this:

Parents! Watch your children. Chaperone your children. Squeamish adults! Find facilities with the privacy you need to be comfortable. That's probably the same place the trans women will be too, zipped up behind their privacy curtain.

It would probably also help if you raised your sons not to be pigs.

Perfect argument for transgenders to get over themselves. Good job.

If they're uncomfortable using male facilities, they can leave.

Huh? Who's forcing anyone to be in a changing room anywhere? Who's forcing anyone to change clothes?

Both. Do you carry all your clothes to the shower with you from your locker? You must be a soggy mess. Integral dry off areas in each shower is a new phenomenon. The average age of public accommodations is way older than private facilities, so you're still going to see common changing areas and even gang showers that haven't been renovated in the last decade.

The Department of Justice issued a veiled threat to shut off school funding if schools don't allow biological males that claim female identity into female facilities. Please try to keep up.

I absolutely agree with you! It's not about being intolerant, like some want you to believe, it's about the minority, transgender people, making so much noise that it over rules the majority and common sense.

I don't need to read the law to know it's utter crap. Men belong in men's locker rooms, women belong in women's locker room. How hard is that to understand.

Why does such a minority, like .3%, have the say over the majority.
