For obvious reasons, public lavatories are gender-restricted. Even though we all know that not all men are perverts or sexual predators, how many of us would feel comfortable allowing men to occupy the same restroom facility as our daughters? Let's take it a step further. Homosexuals or transsexuals in the same public lavatory as those (of all ages) of the same sex. If a lesbian is attracted to women and not men, would it not be inappropriate for her to occupy the same bathroom facility as me, or the same locker room, etc.? Any man in a locker room full of nothing but women is going to be eyeing some a$$es, so just keep it real. So why is it some folk want to imply that homosexuals are somehow immune to--innocent of--the natural eye-lingering mechanism that we know is common--if not invariable--among heterosexuals? What about a transsexual (usually a male who had a sex change operation) utilizing the ladies' room? I've personally been in a public restroom where a transsexual came in and used the facility just as if he had every natural right to be in there with us. It was several years ago at a nightclub. How many of you find that acceptable, and believe transsexuals should have the right to access the ladies' room?
