      Hi Carol. It is pretty bad that a so called Human Rights Division can rule this way.. wow! I hope she makes an appeal. This doesn't sound right at all to me. They are using an arguement that it is because of her "male" anatomy. Don't people have a right to privacy when it comes to their sex organs? Geez we call them privates for a reason. Who did the test on her and how did that go I wonder .. or is it just nosey people assuming. I'd never let anyone examine my privates as a prerequisite for entry into a restroom. Something seems very wrong here!

      I don't know Jessica, but when I saw the article, I thought I would post it in the USA forum for discussion. Fortunately there is no law to prevent a cis-man from using the Ladies loos here in the UK (or vice versa), but you could find yourself being questioned by the police is a member of the public complained (behaviour likely to cause a breach of the peace probably). However, if you told the police that you were trans and you had done nothing but use the toilet, the police would probably do nothing because of the Diversity policies which the police work to.
