Allowing men who identify as women into women’s bathrooms will lead to voyeuristic offences, sexual assaults, and rapes.
If we let transgender people choose to use the restroom they feel most comfortable with, we are essentially inviting males, born with male genitalia to use a female restroom. It provides an opportunity for them to commit sexual assault or harassment.
Other men may also claim to be trans to gain access to female restrooms. Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, when he spoke on the issue of trans people using the bathroom that matches their gender identity, said, “I wish that someone told me that when I was in high school that I could have felt like a woman when it came time to take showers in PE,” adding, “I’m pretty sure that I would have found my feminine side and said, ‘Coach, I think I’d rather shower with the girls today’”.
