Transgender people deserve privacy, dignity in public bathrooms

As we make our way around the public world – offices, stores, restaurants, work, school – we rely on having a private place to attend to our biological needs. Part of the privacy comes in being segregated by gender. Generally speaking, men would not welcome women standing behind them as they use a urinal, and women would not be comfortable with a man in the next stall.

People who identify with the gender that does not correspond to their birth gender deserve this same privacy.
