Gee, who could have seen this coming...

The interim director of the Georgia chapter of the American Civil Liberties has resigned from her position following her daughters’ “frightened” reaction to biological males using the women’s restroom,LifeSiteNews reports.

“I have shared my personal experience of having taken my elementary school age daughters into a women’s restroom when shortly after three transgender young adults, over six feet [tall] with deep voices, entered,” Maya Dillard Smith wrote in a statement.

“My children were visibly frightened, concerned about their safety and left asking lots of questions for which I, like many parents, was ill-prepared to answer,” she continued.

Here's my basic view on such things: If you're good enough at <X> that nobody can tell during the routine act you're undertaking then it does not matter.

As soon as that line is crossed it does.

This means that if you're a cross-dressing man and it's obvious that's what you are by your appearance and/or speech, and you go into the woman's restroom, you've fundamentally failed at your claim of being "trans" (you're not) and you have no right to be there.

Likewise there is no case to be made for a man -- that is, a person possessing a penis, entering or being in a woman's locker room.

I don't care whether you have fake***** stuffed in your shirt or taped your dick down, if you have a penis there is no way to evade this display in a locker room, just as there is no way to evade the presence of breasts or a vagina on a woman in the men's locker room.

You are free to hold any delusion you wish about yourself.  You are free to dislike your lot in life.  In fact, virtually everyone dislikes something about their genetic draw, whether it be their teeth, their hair (amount and location, "wirelike" quality or lack thereof, color, etc) skin color or.... genitals.

You can change the appearance of any of those things but you cannot change the genetic code that caused them to be present.  Sex isn't appearance, it's a physical fact and the fact is that when you are in a place where you are intending to perform a private function at the point you make it a public spectacle you lose any claim of privilege.

Nobody cares if a man that is convincingly dressed as a woman and speaks like one is in a woman's restroom because women's restrooms are full of stalls with doors.  Nobody gets to see what's under your dress in such a setting.  At the point that you and your friend(s) destroy the illusion you have created that you are female by acting in a form or fashion that makes clear you're a man you are no longer entitled to be in a place designated for women.

This means that any such argument as pertains to locker rooms and similar is nonsense, since by definition the physical reality of your person -- that is, who you actually are -- cannot be avoided in a place where by definition you are wearing only your birthday suit.
