Restroom Madness

Posted By Brie Austin In Category: Opinion , Thoughts From News

In a recent article in Newsday, a writer asks for advise on how to deal with a male-to-female transsexual that is in transition at work. The writer, a man, was taken back and uncomfortable when “Karen” exited the men’s room.

This is a reverse from the more common complaint of male-to-female transsexuals exiting the ladies room. First of all, it seems to me that this whole thing consumes entirely too much energy from those in the mainstream, the so called “normal” folk. First people complain that the Trans woman can’t use the ladies room because she wasn’t brn biologically female, and now the men are offended that one is using the men’s room. Where should they pee, in the hallway? Come on folks, treat trans people as people, different from you perhaps, but human nonetheless.
