My Views on Transgender Bathroom and Locker Room Laws

As most of your are likely aware, earlier this year two states in America passed laws that banned individuals from using the bathroom that didn't match their biological sex at birth. These laws have become to be known as Transgender Bathroom Laws, and they have sparked quite the debate across the country. I've had many readers ask my opinion on these laws, and there's enough interest on the subject and will be moving forward, and so I would like to weigh in on the matter as a transgender individual who has every right to comment on these laws as someone with keen insight into the matter.

As I analyze these laws, I am forced to use common sense, which is unfortunately something lacking from a lot of people in the world today. First, I'll start with a graphic that I came across during all the fervor surrounding these laws that helps to put things in perspective for me:

This graphic shows that in the United States, less than 1% of the population identifies as transgender, and if you took the average number based on the graphic, I think you would have to estimate the number of transgendered people in the United States at about .5% of the population or one out of every two hundred individuals. I think that is a fair assessment, and even if you think that number is too low because there may be people who are too embarrassed to identify as transgender, then let's increase it by 50% meaning that .75% of the population is transgender or one out of every 133 people.

If we compare the percentage of transgender people with the percentage of biological females, which make up 50% of the population, then we have 1 out of every 133 people identifying as transgender and 66 out of every 133 identifying as female.  That comparison is flawed, however, but there are lots of biological girls out there who want to become boys.  I don't know for sure what the breakdown is between transgender people who identify as girls and those who identify as boys, but let's assume that of the transgender population, 70% are boys who want to become girls.  Under that assumption, you'd have 1 transgender girl (a person like me) for every 200 or so biological females.

Now that we have a numbers comparison between the number of transgendered girls vs. genetic girls, let's next look at activity that occurs in both the boys and girls bathrooms. In the boys bathroom, the majority of people stand in front of a urinal and do their business by simply unbuttoning their jeans, pulling down a zipper, and then squirting into the urinal (no comment on the terrible aim). When they do have to sit down to do their business, they become a bit more exposed, but let's face it: who wants to see boy's underwear? And who wants to peek at a boy stinking up the bathroom?

Let's contrast that now with what occurs in the girls bathroom. Regardless of whether a girl needs to go number one or two, she is completely exposed from the waist down to the knees. Regardless. And that's not even considering that many girls need to use the bathroom to take care of monthly issues, something that is perhaps even more private than relieving themselves. I know that the girls bathroom is divided into stalls offering some sort of privacy, but it doesn't matter. A predator can easily find a way around the stalls, and so it makes no sense to me to allow a predator the excuse to enter the girls bathroom just because they say they identify with the other gender.

First and foremost, we need to protect our girls. We need to protect the 200 more than we need to accommodate me. Do we need to protect the 200 from legitimate male to female transgender individuals like me?  No. But we do need to protect them from creeps, and judging by some of the people who try and hit on me online, there are a lot of creeps out there. The supposed rights of transgender individuals do not trump the safety of our girls, and so fundamentally, I am in support of the laws in North Carolina and Mississippi, which essentially disallow creeps from entering the girls bathroom.
