In Sunday's Rationally Selfish Webcast, I discussed restrooms for the transgendered in transition -- and, more broadly, the respect due to the transgendered. The question was:
Which bathroom should a pre-operative transgendered person use? The brutal attack at McDonald's on a transgendered person in April 2011 was apparently started because that person used the ladies restroom, which was already occupied by a 14 year old. Was the transgendered person wrong to use that restroom?My answer, in brief:
Transgendered people deserve to be treated with respect, just like everyone else! As for restrooms, they should use whatever restroom matches their outward appearance.Here's the video of my full answer:
