    What seems to have been lost in the fray here was my original point: simply choosing a gender on a given day, and via what agenda that particular day might obtain, is problematic in a broad social sense... I certainly stand by my assertion that certain cis (yeah, I said that!) men will abuse that privilege on occasion. I'm old enough to have seen that sort of thing many times.
    Who are all these supposed fly by night gender choosers?

    That was rhetorical - you're falling into the fear of a slippery slope argument without anything to justify it.

    • As a woman, I’ve still never seen these occasions where men choose to be women for a day

      Where is this happening?

          Yet, as I've already stated, you are committed, and not an opportunist. You are walking the walk.

          I'm gonna give this thing a rest; some people on this thread will have to look for another pinata. But I certainly wish you happiness.

          Whatever drugs your on, share with the class, ok?

          • All I need to know is this:

            Cis women want their boobs done or a facelift and no one cares.

            If i or another trans woman wants their boobs done or something else, we're constantly asked about regret.

                are there as many non-financial hurdles for breast augmentation for trans women or mastectomies for trans men as there are for bottom surgery? I always assumed top surgeries were easier to get (there was a CIS man that got augmentation to win a bet, so they really have no business telling a trans woman they may regret it). They're also more reversible compared to bottom surgery. It would be pretty ridiculous if they make you jump through the same hoops, although I wouldn't put it past anyone to make **** more difficult for a trans woman vs some CIS dude that wants to win a bet with his poker buddies.

                  At this point, I’m pretty confident that Fishman has spent the last 50 years (assuming an ‘81 college graduation date) fantasizing about sneaking into women’s room to hear and smell them poop and pee (not like you’d see anything* unless you were in the same stall).

                  Why else would he project that desire onto so many others to think it would be a widespread problem?

                  *to be fair, he probably also imagines that women’s rooms are routinely the site of naked pillowfight lesbian orgies.

                  • It seems that if there is such a danger of men doing what Fishman says, they should all be kept 500 yards from women's bathrooms at all times, right? That seems like the most thorough solution.

                      meanwhile, I've used co-ed bathrooms in other countries and somehow managed not to peep on, harass, or rape the women that were also using the restroom.

                        Genetic screening at every women’s room door. If you’re not in favor, then why don’t you care about women getting raped?

                          There is at least one category of spy-porn based of guys peeping women while they're on the toilet. It's my bet that this is the basis for these sorts of reactions to the idea of transwomen in bathrooms. The act of spying and/or filming in these settings is illegal already, and I'm pretty sure that almost all of the cases I've ever seen come up in the news involves in an apartment or rental home setting. (Coincidentally, I used to be acquainted with a woman who found a peep camera in the vent of her apartment's bathroom. My friend, her boyfriend at the time, paid a visit to the site. Miraculously, the camera disappeared from her kitchen countertop the next day while she was at work.)

                          I don't recall ever seeing an article in the news that something like this has ever happened in multi-person bathroom.

                            Sure, cameras I (almost) get, especially in home bathrooms where people would be naked, showering, etc. But that’s not the vantage point you would get by actually physically being in a public restroom.

                              • I feel for the last two weeks and 8 pages, this turned into the "Make Amber Justify Her Existence" thread." I should send Fishy an invoice alone for that.
