Purpleprincess78: transgender people have been around since ancient times (just like gay people), and now just as then, they have always blended in well with society mostly unnoticed. it is likely you have used a bathroom with a transgender person and didn't know it, why? because, just like homosexuals, we dont make ourselves obvious. people are so worried about transgenders causing a problem in bathrooms, the question is, why has it not been an issue before? why has a transgender person never been charged in a sex crime in a public bathroom before these laws where proposed? if you believe it has happened please feel free to do the research and cite the date(s) and location(s) of these incidences.
