    Pot meet kettle. Basically I am saying that you are making an argument that just because people believe something against what you believe that it must be nonsense. This is all before we look at the various actual physical and genetic possibility that could cause such a body/internal image conflict. AIS, Chimerism and many other conditions can cause a body to develop differently from the mind. When you have an XY person born with a vagina, is it really wrong from them to want to get the Addadictomy operation? I forget the name, but it's been mentioned in other transsexual/intersex threads where a YY person is born with a penis and testicles, or at least a scrotum. The "balls" are still actually gonads, not having developed. So why shouldn't they want to have the removal operation? And what of the people who actually contain 2 or more sets of DNA? If the mind develops off one gender and the body off the other, which one is right? Both developed according to their blueprints? And before you go off on how rare these things are, how many cases of people claiming GID can you show what the genetic make up is? Answer is none, short of it being part of an article where the person themselves bother to share the info. So you don't know that it is an XY person who is wanting the removal of the penis or an YY person wanting one added.

    Honestly, for someone who'll almost certainly never use one, you are absolutely obsessed with the navy's toilets.

    As someone who has used one and might do so again in the future, all I have to say is they are probably a hell of a lot better than a funnel, something I saw many a male sailor using while on the carrier, despite having a urinal in the space that normally wasn't in use at those times.

If it makes you uncomfortable than you are lying to yourself about where you actually stand on politics vs reality. Not meaning you specifically, iangb, just generally. Building different facilities admits that they are not girls.
    I am basing my suggestion on the common beleif, as demonstrated by many people in this thread including the OP, that having trans kids showering with cis kids of a different birth gender would make people uncomfortable. It wouldn't particularly bother me (no more, at least, than enforced communal nudity of children does!) but I realise not everyone shares this opinion. As such, I offer a compromise which would make things OK for both sides of the argument.

    One important thing though: the proposed rule change would not have any one showering with any one. The whole story is bogus and the proposed rule change only has to do with who may participate in what sport.

    Agreed - it was a response to the hype rather than the story itself.
