The transgender ‘bathroom bill’: Who wants it—men or women?

The transgender ‘bathroom bill’: Who wants it—men or women?:

“Most women are not bothered much about the fact that they might at times share public bathrooms designated for females with transgender women who were registered as men at birth. Men on the other hand take umbrage, and worry about the safety and privacy of the women in their lives. Such male transphobia has its roots in how men see themselves as the so-called protectors of women, says Rebecca Stones of Nankai University in China and Monash University in Australia, in an article in Springer’s journal Gender Issues.”
