Over at "EHIPASSIKO" the blog site of "Cristan" Williams, there is a new post that is, well, it is just unbelievable. Williams tries to argue that, in the context of the bathroom, women are in as much danger, if not more, from other women, as they are from men. That is, this "transwoman" is trying to say that men pose no more of a danger than other women. Unbelievable! And, of course, this is done with very questionable evidence.
Now, clearly, anything is possible. The issue is not, "Are women totally and completely safe from possible assault and even rape if men are never allowed into a women's bathroom?" That would be absurd. The issue is, "Will women's safety, and their comfort, be affected negatively by the presence of men in dresses in the women's room." This, of course, is completely lost on a gender fascist like Williams who wishes to assert that the moment a man puts on a dress, he becomes completely and fully a female with all attendant rights and privileges. Williams joins with fellow kook "Monica" Roberts in proclaiming that they now have a "neo-clit" in their panties and that they are thus superior to natal women, and must be given special privilege.
Now, Williams offers as evidence for this assertion a series of articles involving assaults, one rape, and a rather bizarre case (cited twice) of a pair of women engaging in sex in a bathroom, apparently in front of a child. Unfortunately for Williams, the rape case is not a very good argument as the case was later dismissed. It may well have never even happened. Or at least not have been an actual rape (it involved digital penetration).
Now, it seems incredible to me that anyone claiming to be a woman would ever make an argument that other, uh, natal women are as much of a threat as men are. Of course women fight with each other. And of course such fights might even occur in the ladies room. But that is not really the issue; The issue is sexual violence, which overwhelming involves men, whether it is rape, or some other form including voyeurism.
As I say, you can't make this stuff up...not that I would want to.
Oh, and a simple solution to the bathroom issue. Access to the women's room should be available only to those who are in transition, seeking surgery, on hormones, and who are living full time, It could be linked to changes of identification, which should be time limited. If the person is not making progress towards surgery, they would revert to an 'M' on their ID and be banned from the women's room. Simple. And fair. If you are a crossdresser, find a family room or a place with a single, one person bathroom and stay out of places you don't belong. And this includes full time crossdressers with "neo-clits" like "Monica" Roberts.
