It's pretty hard if you're female-to-male, at school/work all day, and on your period.

But forcing people to risk getting harassed or beat up because "penis = men's restroom" and "vagina = woman's restroom" is not forcing stuff on others. Nope, not at all.

Vagina, women's restroom. Penis, men's restroom.

She is transgender, not a cross-dresser.

Do they ever think that just maybe everyone else isn't comfortable with that?
Did you ever think that you probably wouldn't even know anyway? What are you going to do, look at everyone's privates to "make sure they match"?

Trans people are already fundamentally the sex that they transition into, which is why they are transitioning to begin with. What they're really doing is getting the outside to match the inside. So a male-to-female transsexual is already fundamentally female. She's changing her outer appearance to match her inner self.

(and please don't start groping around for statistics of a "3rd sex" or some nonsense.
The numbers on those supposed cases are so extraordinarily low they have no bearing
on a normal conversation in the vast majority of places.)
Genetics aren't the whole picture though. Hormone levels and brain structures are a part of biological gender as well. Studies have shown this mismatch shows up in transsexuals. In other words, transsexuals literally have a "male" or "female" brain with clashing genitalia.

There are wonderful solutions that don't involve pushing an agenda on anyone--that is--creating a gender-neutral single stall for people who wish to use it. It could also double as the family restroom and triple as an accessible restroom since most bathrooms aren't as accessible as they are claimed to be. That would be killing three birds with one stone, and everyone would be happy. The men/women who want their bathrooms to be strictly biologically male and female people don't feel their rights are infringed upon, and transgender people have a bathroom they can use without being harassed. Win-win.
