    and again, I don't care who uses what bathroom, I simply think you all are not considering the unintended consequences.
    But that fact is still protected as medical information and you couldn't know who legitimately was intersexed or not and couldn't force them to tell you if they were or if they were simply transgender.

    Um, okay? So there are "unisex" bathrooms in the White House? Most houses have unisex bathrooms. I've never designated my household bathrooms by gender, nor have I heard of such a thing. Some stores lately have unisex restrooms available with segregated bathrooms.

    I simply don't see the likelihood of any implied "unintended consequences" as happening, at least not in a manner that couldn't be easily taken care of with other laws.

    it's really not relevant.

    Just sayin what he did, replying to your point about unisex bathrooms, I really dont care.

    Laws already in place, like harassment or sexual assault.

    "lady u r a d00d, use the mens room" is harrassment or sexual assault?

    What are you talking about?

    What unintended consequences would you have been talking about other than something like sexual harassment, sexual assault, or rape? Pretty sure it had nothing to do with people stopping someone to "direct them" to the other restroom.

    If they are not really a "dood", yes can be harassment, not to mention pretty disrespectful. And why should you be the arbiter of what makes a person a "dood"? What if you're wrong? And how does someone have to prove you wrong?

    I'm arguing it's more of a continuum and you're arbitrarily putting boundaries along it based on social metrics.

    Ok, so how are biological and genetic boundaries arbitrary boundaries based on social metrics?

    You are seeking to ban them from certain places on simlar grounds.

    Should perverted men who “identify” as women be legally treated as women?

    It's a nonsensical attempt to use the characteristics of extremely-rare outliers to “prove” something that is simply not true about the 99.8% of the population that are not among those outliers.

    As provided multiple times, intersex beings provide a continuum. They have a combination or absence of X and Y chromosomes outside of the "standard."
