    So, your position is the owner of the bathroom decides. That works for private homes, now what about public? Well the public has decided. The decision is this: if you have a penis you use one bathroom, if you have a vagina you use another. You can play pretend all you want, but your physiology in that one aspect is the sole determiner.

    Look, I can resolve this. How about we create a separate bathroom for the mentally confused so anyone not sure what there gender is can go in there and the rest of the mentally stable population doesn't have to be inconvenienced by such nonsense.

    There. Problem solved.

    Not a bad solution but for one question, who pays for this new requirement?

    We can raise taxes on liberals only. Since they support this kind of nonsense, let them pay for it.

    Not that many would notice, plus since we have stalls, it shouldn't be that big a deal either. That is like caring about there being stalls rather than a single restroom so you don't have anyone who might look or bother you.

    I say to those women "too bad". Wait til you get home or suck it up just as those with any fears of public restrooms do.

    Nope. There's already a restroom available for those who have an issue with it, since it's their issue. The one at their home. Or they can get over it. Maybe a psychiatrist could help them with their fear of that what that person in the stall next to them might or might not have between their legs or what chromosomes they have.

    Except the owner of a publicly operated business has no right to ask what sex a person is when it comes to using the restrooms. Privacy laws say that's none of the business owners business and sex discrimination to do it.

    Plus this was a federal employee/job. They had absolutely no right to decide what makes a woman a "woman" when the law already said she was a woman.

    Businesses over a certain size are required by law to have separate male and female bathrooms. The wait til you get home doesn't work for employees. For the extremely small distribution of folks confused about their gender, they can do the waiting or use their sex's bathroom.

    I say to those NOT women, too bad. Wait til you get home or drive a minivan with a portapotty in the rear.

    I'm thinking that "this man" wouldn't be as excited to be in the women's restroom as you would be. OK?

    They don't need to ask, this has always been on the honor system. But honor is obviously sadly lacking in the confused.

    As for the definition of woman, bathrooms are a thing of physiology, not your hopes and dreams and ponies. That federal job must still follow the law which requires separate sex bathrooms.
