“I think that there are a lot of folks that don’t understand the difference between sex and gender and only see Lila as her sex at birth,” said Morgan Keenan, the group’s founding director.

They also see a dick every time she changes in the locker room.

Yep. If we want to play these games of semantics, then let's simply say that restrooms / locker rooms are separated by sex.

Lila's self-identified gender may be female, but the sex is 100%, undeniably, unquestionably male. So you use the male bathroom.

Phenotype or genetic?

Or we could replace the male/female signs on bathrooms/locker rooms with penis/vaginas. Problem solved! Lol

Dicks aren't really the issue here. It's a matter of poops.

It's a well known fact that girls don't poop. So, if he is using the restroom to poop he can't exactly identify as a girl and shouldn't be allowed to use the girls restroom to poop.

However, if he's smart enough to pretend to be a girl to gain access to the girls locker room. Well, good game sir! I wish I could have thought of that when I was a teenager.

I completely agree, I'm saying that the girls protest is completely reasonable. If I was a their age I would definitely be a little unsettled if someone of the other gender was changing in a locker room assigned for my gender.

Sorry, but why is it either puritanical or "nudity hate" to not want to get undressed in front of someone of the opposite sex?

Our fear of nudity is pretty fucking bizzare, I don't see the need for gender segregated bathrooms or changing rooms.

However, if we're intent on having them, it seems like phenotypic gender should be the determining factor.

You look like a girl, use the girls, look like a guy, use the guys.

Doesn't seem like that big of an issue though. Just isolated incidents that will probably be handled satisfactorily on a case by case basis blown way out of proportion be the media.

I completely agree. It's stupid that we're so averse to nudity when it's just a human body. And if they're allowing transgenders to use locker rooms, what the hell is the point of segregating them at that point anyways?

"Look like a boy" as in "have a penis"?

Or "look like a boy" as in "cut my hair short and wear baggy clothes and not dresses"?

Please say you meant the first one else I'm baffled by your comment.

But people transition. Then they look like a girl in most ways, they grow boobs, they stop having body hair, but until surgery, they still have outies.

No one bats an eye at a fully transitioned transgender person using their gender-appropriate bathroom. It's the mean time that's the problem. One would think we could all have the decency to accommodate people in their transition, and get over the puritanical and scientifically laughable "you only have one sex" shit.

Well, there is documented proof of Dysmorphia associated with a persons body. While you can't physically change your gender, it's still a real thing.

Unfortunately, so many are claiming the bestest, most tolerant thing to do is pump these poor people full of hormones and butcher their bodies instead of helping them become comfortable in their own skin. If someone wants to pluck their right eye out because it offends them, they're given care to address the underlying issues, not humored, but cutting their dick off? You're an intolerant bigot if you think they should be talked out of it.

It most certainly is a real thing, but what obligation do others have in helping you form your self-identity? Why is that someone else's burden? Or are we going to accept transgendered individuals as mentally ill, and accept their demands in the same way we force stores to have wheelchair access, or disability parking? If it's the latter, okay, I get that, but these LGBT activists have stop bullshitting everyone.

I worked at McDonalds and had to clean the restrooms in between shifts. There was shit all around the flushing lever once. Like someone just wiped their ass and then grabbed the flushing lever with the shit covered toilet paper. Worst I ever saw in the mens room was pee on the seats.

13 is a very convenient time to suddenly realise you're a woman. I don't really trust much anything teenagers say about their sexuality because of all the hormones rushing about. Every gay or trans person I know (and I know a few) says they realised it before or after puberty.

Yeah, because changing near someone else goes against your welfare. I can totally see how much mental anguish someone would go through because they have slightly less clothes on at the same time, and in the general vicinity while you're in a similar condition.
