As such, I offer a compromise which would make things OK for both sides of the argument.

    In a world of differing opinions, compromise is important.
    Do you have children of your own? Daughters perhaps?

    Now this is what real warships have for crappers.

    And as any real sailor knows, when in rough seas, don't use the seats an either end.

    The world keeps spinning around and keeps getting crazy. After one of the schools allowed a transgender teen (who hasnít had the surgery yet) to use girlís toilet, now in Minnesota they consider a possibility of allowing transgenders to use the shower together with the sex they identify themselves.
    And while boys might even welcome such changes, Iím not sure that girls or their parents would be extremely glad to see a boy in the girlís locker.
    Seriously, why some doubtful need of one or two people is prevailing over the needs and rights of other people? Give them their own locker, everybody would be happy.
    This is why local elections are just as important or more important than federal elections.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    And once more ignorance rears its moronic head. You are obviously clueless on the difference between trans and gay. A gay male still identifies as male and thus would be in the men's locker room/bathroom. Transsexual has nothing to do with what gender the person is attracted to but how they see themselves.

    Why the hell do people keep bringing up the question of if people who support such concepts as allowing trans to use the facilities of their identity have daughters? First off the sexism of never asking if they have sons is just blinding. Secondly why trans girl (i.e. physical male body) be any more of a "threat" to my daughter than a homosexual girl would be?

    Obviously you didn't get the tongue in cheek, are you gay or something, sounds like you're taking this personally.

    Thank you. Yes, Transgender is one thing; being gay/lesbian is another. And trans people may be attracted to people of their prior gender or to those of their new gender. Or both. Just like the rest of us.

    And yes, why is it everyone shudders at their daughters showering with boys but not their sons showering with girls? do they know how cruel girls can be? It is very sexist.

    And at any rate - the story has nothing to do with showers.

    Actually that isn't true. Someone can be trans and still like the opposite or same sex. Gender identification does not determine sexual preference.
    I know of 2 transsexuals that were male and now are female (1 surgically the other still in transition) and they both like females. One of them is even still living with her girlfriend who stayed with them even though they started dating when he was "male".
