I found this today. It is not news for us, but it is an interesting look at reality vis-à-vis what bathroom to use.
...many transgender people spend a lot of time thinking about bathrooms and give serious consideration to which set of toilets they are going to use each time they need one. It’s a game of bathroom calculus: Should they go in the room designated for the gender they know themselves to be, or should they go in the one designated for the gender that other people say they are? Either decision risks harassment and violence.

The article is a rehash of what we, as transfolk, already know. But it is a worthwhile read nonetheless.

If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. Let him forget there is such a thing as war. If the Government is inefficient, top-heavy, and tax-mad, better it is all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag.

A good article and a point well made but of course we all know that the bathroom scare was always a red herring. This was always about hatred of transgender people. As mentioned in the article this allows people to spew hate at a child for using the most appropriate toilet in school. That's sickening.

the whole issue ended rather abruptly here after some official publicly made an observation that Transgendered people are perfectly able to obtain concealed weapons licenses in this state and would be well withing their rights to defend themselves with any necessary force against anyone threatening them with violence over using the bathroom....
