I never cease to be amazed by the obsession that the transgender crowd has for the ladies room. And now, everyone's favorite bigot, Monica Roberts, has a new rant on Bilerico about some transgender getting caught in the women's bathroom in Houston, Texas. Of course, this is going to create a perfect storm of trans-insanity given that this is the home of Phillip "Phyllis" Frye, who is never shy about seeking publicity. And who often just makes things worse.
Alas, Texas conservatism is running head on into the relatively liberal nature of Houston (they have a lesbian mayor) and the end result will probably not be good.
But the fact is, it really is very simple. Whether you are pre-op, or a transgender, if you don't assimilate as woman (I don't like the term pass when applied to a transsexual, though it is appropriate if one is talking about a transgender) reasonably well, then avoid using the ladies room until you do. When I was in transition, I didn't do what the transgender crowd now insists is their right. I did not just march into the nearest women's room. I built up slowly. I would seek out a restroom I knew would likely be empty and hopefully as isolated as possible. As I became more confident that I was perceived as a woman, I started using more public restrooms. I never once has a problem in the ladies room, though the last time I went in a men's room I freaked some poor guy out.
Simply put, if you don't care how you are perceived, and think you have some right to use the ladies room because you are dressed as a woman, you really don't belong there. I wasn't so much scared of being caught, as I was thinking about the feelings of my fellow women. People like Monica Roberts, and the vast majority of transgender activists, don't share that value. And that says a lot about their true nature.
Note: I found a video of the person in question, and this person is not credible as a "woman." Also, it should be noted that Texas has a law that specifically outlaws going into a restroom reserved for the opposite sex. The mayor in Houston has issued an executive order that is in conflict with state law. This is probably going to be a train wreck.
