    Frequent opposition comment tends to object to M-F using the female facility; read the comments to that story. A father imagines some burly guy claiming to be transsexual waltzing into their daughter’s locker room to take care of business in front of them. As far as I know, that has never occurred. We do know of many instances of males making no pretense of their male gender stalking females in places where men do not belong.

    The reality is that the school-age person transitioning as either M-F or F-M has incurred weeks, months, and years of counselling, is likely prescribed puberty blockers and / or hormones, and presents as their identified sex and gender. Few would otherwise know unless that person was public about their transition.

    Related to the article was the issue of a F-M forced to use the female facility. Perhaps when those insane laws force brawny F-M people incompatibly to the female facility, then we shall begin to see the perpetrators of these laws realize the error of their ways.

    I read that these laws could obligate the patron of every facility to present their Birth Certificate as a requisite to enter. What of those who do not carry their Birth Certificate? Or those who do not or can not change their Birth Certificate? Will a parent be allowed to vouch for their minor child whom they accompany to a facility? What of occasions when a mother takes her toddler son to the female facility? Or a father who takes his toddler daughter to the men’s facility? Will there be sufficient sole-occupant facilities available? Who will bear they cost constructing them? Who will decide whom will be denied access? How can one appeal? Where do they seek ‘relief’?
