Richard, I have heard a million different opinions on this. Some say a “person” should use whichever gender bathroom they identify with. The biggest downfall in this scenario is the fact that any male, who wants to see some partially nude women, can go put on a dress, wig, and make-up and just walk right in. Second, this issue is just like any other, get your foot in the door, you just keep pushing it open further and further, pretty soon we are sharing showers, dressing rooms, etc.
To me it’s just not that difficult to figure out. If your DNA says you are male, then you are male and you use the MENS bathroom. No guesswork needed.
If I said I identify myself as a Gazelle, running across the plains of Africa, does that make me one? I believe not. If I had my skin dyed the same color as a Gazelles and had antlers added to my head, would I be a Gazelle? Still no.
This isn’t a matter of what you feel, it isn’t a matter of what you have changed, it is plain and simply a matter of DNA.
I look forward to your next post. Have a great day.
