    FYI, a friend of mine is taking the text from that sign, coming up with a new graphic (he thinks this one is still too gendered), and making stickers. Anyone up for some subversive activism, I’ll start to get the word out when they’re up for sale (at cost; he’s not trying to make any money from this).

    Can’t wait for the incident that leads to a lawsuit.

    BTW, this is not a case of allowing a “transwoman” use the women’s restroom or a “transman” to use the men’s restroom. This is a case of forcing all men and women to use a common bathroom. Virtually all of the users will be non-trans men and non-trans women, but they all now have to share a bathroom and have their personal space violated in order to placate a bunch of unstable, homophobic, misogynist, and often violent trans activists.

    Well, if this is a single-occupancy rest-room with a lock on the door, the gesture means absolutely nothing. Most such restrooms are not segregated by gender, anyway.

    If it is just one of several “ladies’ rooms” on the premesis, then it also means little, since women who want a women’s only rest-room can simply use the ones that are and avoid this one.

    On the other hand, if this is the ONLY women’s room on the premises and it is multiple-occupancy, this will be very interesting.

    It is straight WOMEN, of course, who object the most to rest-rooms that are not segregated by gender. Allowing men into a ladies’ room opens up all kinds of possibilities–increased likelihood of rape, illegal sexual aggression of other kinds (men exposing themselves to women), sexual intercourse in the stalls, and just Peeping Tom behavior (men looking through the cracks of a stall to get a glimpse of naked women or equipping themselves with mirrors and sitting in the adjacent stall to do the same thing.

    So if the ladies’ room is available to ANYONE, it means men cannot be kept out, regardless of sexual orientation–and ANYONE can claim any “gender identity” they want to just by saying they possess it.

    The eventual upshot of all this, will, of course, be angry conflict between straight women and trans/effeminate men….which should go along way towards disabusing the latter of the notion that straight women feel any affinity for them or bond with them or even sympathy with them….that that notion exists only in the imaginations of trans/effeminate men and is entirely a one-way street.

    Should be very entertaining and fun, not to mention hilarious, to watch! Woman-idolizing men being forced to face the truthabout what REAL women actually think of them.

    I can’t wait!

    @ Dana… it is a single bathroom for one user so no sharing is necessary. The sign is a compassionate and peaceful token of tolerance… hardly “violent activism.”

    Damn! And I was so looking forward to the ultimate cat fight!

    Amazing. Amazing how someone could write a very thoughtful positive comment about the great Willie Nelson, and then come to this discussion and vomit the same crazy sh.t as usual.

    Trollolol, Rick. Your anti-fem, anti-woman (stemming from the same misogynistic outlook, no doubt) is always hilariously transparent and pathetic. Get a life!

    Interesting how this site allows insane trolls to post asinine provocations, yet deletes the posts of people who provide useful information about the subjects of your posts. I’m sorry I said something negative about my experiences with your family doctor, but you really ought to think about how you moderate this site. You’re doing readers a disservice by allowing only certain viewpoints–some of them hateful and purposeless–and not others.

    @dg:

    How do you know this is a single-user bathroom? There is nothing in this post that says that.

    If it is a single-user bathroom, then the sign and this story are meaningless, since it has always been the case that any individual of either sex and any “gender identity” could use a single-user bathroom. We might as well put signs on traffic lights saying that people can drive on green and stop on red, regardless of gender identity or gender expression.

    I think this is a really classy sign to put up. It’s a way of saying to trans folk, we accept you, we aren’t here to judge, and that is a huge statement to make when there are still places that are trying to actively legislate against trans folk. Props.
