Transgender Borg!?

I have been called a member of the transgender borg. Apparently because I will not agree to the opinions of some others in the TS community.

Did you know there is a TS/TG bitch fest going on? Yep. Seems I have stumbled into a hornets nest of TS who hate the idea of men in the women's room. Well it isn't that simple. They are opposed to men in dresses [Cross Dressing Men] using the Lady's room. But who exactly are these men in dresses going to the potty? From what I can tell it is a small tiny percentage of the populace who are male cross dressers. Literally men who like to dress as women. Typically it is a heterosexual male out and about. Often with a wife or girlfriend. Granted the idea of this man in the ladies restroom is kinda odd.
Now if he is in the restroom what is he doing there? I would wager that in the vast majority of cases that he wants to piss in peace and not worry about one of the men in the men's room beating him or raping him.
The women's room is simply safer.
Now I must ask the reader....If this is such a big issue please point out the news reports of men being a constant menace in the ladies room.

Who is the next group of 'men in dresses' going to the ladies room? Gay males who are performers. Drag Queens. The local gay bar I like to frequent has the lady boys use the women's room. It is a matter of presentation. When they are dressed as males they go to the men's and when they are en femme they use the ladies.
What nefarious deeds are those gay men up to in the ladies room anyways?

Next in our men in dresses subsection of the populace are full time transgender women and non/op transsexuals who would take great offense to being called men. It is only the fact that they have a penis that identifies them as male. Indeed they are women who for whatever personal reasons have decided to not opt for genital surgery. These reasons are solely the choices of these women. It is not for anyone to second guess these women on their personal life or what is in their panties.

Next in our list is the pre-op transsexual woman. A woman may be pre-op for years before she has the resources to get surgery. Should we send her to the men's room? She looks like a woman, she talks like a woman, she conducts herself daily as a woman and she even thinks like a typical woman. Should her penis, which I assure you she is dreadfully ashamed of, keep her out of the ladies room?

It is simply not safe for an individual who looks like a female to go to the men's restroom. Men are much more likely to inflict violence or rape than women. Especially if they are dealing with a male they do not respect or makes them feel repressed homoerotic rage.

I understand that the real issue here is uneducated males and male aggression but we can not just throw vulnerable people to the proverbial lions while society gets its shit together.

I also understand that some women are uncomfortable with males in their space. But I ask my fellow females...when is the last time you heard of a man dressed as a woman harming a woman in a public ladies room? How many times in the last 10 years have you heard of this problem?

You haven't. Because it would be a death blow to the fragile ego of most straight males to be caught in a dress, let alone being caught committing a sex offense in a dress. The very few 'straight males' who do cross dress in public do so typically late at night and in select bars and establishments. Or they will be out and about with their wife at the mall 3 towns away. The vast majority of males who are in dress's are not males at all. The few that actually are men have not made an issue of themselves.

So who the hell are we really worried about in the ladies room I am left asking?

Why do I even care?

If the law becomes that a person with a penis must use the men's room then the automatic becomes that people with vagina's will have to use the ladies room.
This will be a bad idea.
This will force allot of MTF into men's rooms and the FTM into the men's room. Women are upset that a man is in their bathroom? Wait until they have FTM's in their restrooms. Now there really are men in the women's loo.

Also the final point and this one is personal.
Sevan is androgyn. Sevan is on testosterone. Sevan has no intentions to fully transition.
A few years from now Sevan is going to look like a mix of male and female. Beard and breasts. If we press this vagina's only in the women's room issue and it becomes law then Sevan is going to get flack from someone somewhere regardless of which bathroom ze uses. If someone thinks Sevan is male and ze is in the female bathroom then is ze going to have to prove to some cop ze has a vagina?
What if ze goes to the men's room and there is a dicks only policy and someone decides to press the issue and call the genital cops. This time not only must ze bare all ze will be getting a citation for using the wrong toilet.

I hope you have a good day and a better tomorrow.

where do we,
The androgynes,
Get to go when we must pee?

When we are out and about,
where should we go to let it out?

Put a question mark on the bathroom door,
Then we'll know just who it's for!

(and I'm one too, so poking fun @ self here...;))

Hi y'all!

Thats what I am saying!
Bathroom Nazi's regardless of their side of the srgument need to take a chill pill. Not like we have a hoard of slathering men just waiting to put on dresses so they can molest inocent women in the loo.
