    Well I guess if there are private areas of the locker room (ie changing stalls) which she is choosing not to use in favour of the public ones then it's a bit different in light of the children situation. But if there is no private option then what's a girl to do?

    Unless it was accidental, I don't know why she'd want to.

    That's what I was trying to get at with my first post.

    Perhaps special accommodations could be made? Or would that be separate but equal? I just want shower doors installed at my gym
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    Shower doors sound like a swimmingly good idea.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I don´t know, who cares. It´s just some genitalia, he (she) is not trying to hump them...

    why r u americans so crazy about this useless stuff like nude body parts in the shower, bible teachings in school, creationism, health insurance for poor people, bla bla bla...!

    OTOH I could somewhat see the point of the argument "she (he) should use the guys locker room".

I guess some transgenders decide against surgery though, so they can't just bide their time.
    That is really what is most bizarre about this story. I cannot understand the mindset of transgender in question, why she would put herself out there like that. It seems...terribly blunt and unsympathetic towards the reactions of other people. Sure, those reactions might very well be wrong, but transgenderism is a complex thing I can understand why its difficult for others to understand and adjust to it. Nobody wins in this scenario, she feels persecuted, some people in the locker rooms feel distressed and the media get the perfect story to point to when they want to argue against trans rights. The transgender MtF in question could be a lone eccentric, but if this goes public she might be taken as representative. People could argue all transgender women are just waiting in the wings to get their junk out.
