Well, first one must make the distinction between "transgender/transexual" and "transvestite." The former identify one who is/has actually been "changed" via hormone therapy and has had/will have surgical alteration of genitalia. In this case, the "transgender/transexual" is now clinically "female/male", as the case may be. The latter (Transvestite) refers to one who, while clinically still the birth sex, simply dresses as the opposite sex. In my opinion, the former (Transgender/Transexual) should be allowed to use public restrooms which are for the "new" sex, rather than the "birth" sex. While the latter (Transvestite) should use the restroom for the sex with which they were born, and still, clinically, are. Bear in mind that a large number of Transvestites are heterosexual, even though they enjoy dressing as the opposite sex. For this reason, they should not use the restroom of the sex for which they are merely "dressed." The transgendered, however, typically prefer the opposite sex of which they have become; i.e., a man who transgenders to a woman typically has been with men prior to procedure and will so in future. Ditto for the women who transgender. Finally, shame on the legislators for never bringing up these points.
