    I was at the airport in Manchester, NH a couple of years ago. After arriving on a plane my business partner, repeat business partner, went to the men's room. I ALWAYS use a stall. A guy came in with two girls, presumably daughters, who were about 8 to 10 years-old, they stood by the sinks, where I was. Their dad went into a stall. They watched my business partner urinate, giggling about his penis. I could tell this because they were pointing at him. When we left the restroom I mentioned the girls to my business partner. He didn't care...until I told him that they were staring and talking about his penis. The first door out of the restroom, on the left, was a unisex/family restroom with the door open. The guy with the girls simply didn't want to use that restroom. He wanted to make a point.

    We gave him an ear-full and complained to the security people. He try to say that we were the perverts for caring. Once a year I find myself in a restroom with a young girl and their dad. Very often the young girl is watching guys urinate. I ALWAYS use a stall because you never know when this is going to happen, plus I don't like urinating around homosexuals.

    The op's article says the lawyers are going to get $650k of that money. That's ridiculous.

    So, the school was financially bullied into acquiescence, the matter ultimately remains unsettled and some people are defending this as a legitimate exercise of civil rights?
    Lol.

    One thing does confuse me though, the article states that transgenders are covered by the term "sex discrimination". Wouldn't that mean that transgenderism has nothing to do with it, and an actual female would also be covered by the same protections and thus be entitled to use the men's bathroom without restriction?
    And likewise, wouldn't an actual male be entitled to use the woman's toilet?

    A case lasting years that defendants attempted to appeal up to the supreme court? Lots. I've seen shorter cases that cost more.

    Yes and my civil rights are being violated by not being allowed to use the ladies room.

    I don’t recognize transgenders as a group, so perhaps that’s how I’m missing the point. So I should be able to go into the woman’s bathroom Just because I say I identify as a woman, and can sue if I’m not allowed?

    I think he clearly doesn't consider it worth mentioning, but yeah, it should at least be understood that posters with an opposing view to his would find it important.

    I'm about to sue the shit out of some people for not allowing me to use the restroom of my choosing. Idgaf if women are not comfortable with it, it's my mother fucking right to be able to piss where ever I want.

    I don't think there's much of a comparison between a particular race and someone who thinks they're something they're not, but that's just me.

    I was mostly being facetious, but to continue the line of argument:

    George Wallace said the same thing about black people who thought they were "something they're not" (equal to whites): "In the name of the greatest people that have ever trod this earth, I draw the line in the dust and toss the gauntlet before the feet of tyranny, and I say segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever."
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Wallace's_1963_Inaugural_Address

    And for the record, I think the $800k settlement is a bit absurd. I also think they should have just told the kid to use the bathroom in the nurse's office, and that should have been good enough for everybody.

    The transgender thing is hard to wrap one's mind around, but at the end of the day, who am I to tell someone where their right to self-determination begins and ends, even if I don't agree with it? As long as they are not harming anyone or infringing on your rights, Civil Rights mean civil rights for everybody-- even if you think they are crazy.

    Nice Robert Frost quote.
