The problem here isn’t the innocent person…the problem here is the potential predator and the risk we accept by allowing males to enter female bathrooms.
This is a simple decision of mitigation. Are we protecting women as a precious symbol of American cultural beliefs? Or are we placing them backseat to some trending hashtag #WeJustNeedToPee?
As for me, the safety of our mothers, wives, sisters and daughters comes first. #DoTheWeeWeeDanceSomeWhereElse
A US transgender man is leading the fight against proposed legislation that would make him use the women’s restroom. Using #WeJustNeedToPee, Michael Hughes of Minnesota is posting selfies from women’s bathrooms asking if he belongs there.
Minnesota is among four states considering laws that would require trans people to use male or female bathrooms based on the sex they were assigned at birth, not the gender they identify with. In Kentucky, for example, schools could be sued up to $2,500 if a trans student used the “wrong” bathroom.
In Hughes’ state, the Republican Party introduced a bill on March 6 to “protect and provide for the privacy and safety of all students enrolled in public schools and to maintain order and dignity in restrooms, locker rooms, changing rooms, showers, and other facilities where students may be in various states of undress in the presence of other students.”
