Not the first time, needless to say, but this one’s a doozy.
The objection made by many people opposed to establishing a right of the transgendered to use the bathroom or shower of their choice is not so much about the occasional transgendered person using a facility.
It is that by making someone’s gender choice unquestionable, you are actually saying that anyone, at any time, can use the facilities of the other gender, and if challenged, can simply claim to be transgendered.
So any middle aged man who wants to shower with the girls’ soccer team at the local community college will now have a federal right to do so.
And if anyone asks him to leave, they will be violating his legal rights. (Some have argued that social norms will keep people in line in bathrooms; but it seems hardly worth commenting on the uselessness of social norms when the underlying policy is meant to destroy social norms.)
Gender choice out of bounds for discussion. (Just live with it, young ladies taking shower.)
The bloke makes the claim, no one dare stop him. (DOJ is on his case in the flash of a towel ping, ACLU providing the court case.)
Social norms? Forget about them! Right now!
