I am confused about the flap over transgender people and what public restroom they may legally use. Here's why: Let's say that I am a woman who always knew I should be male. Once I reach adulthood, I decide to become that man, including sexual reassignment surgery. Part of the psychological part of that process requires me to live and dress like a man in order to prove to myself and the medical community that surgery would be appropriate. I am in a building wearing a suit and tie with a man's haircut, no makeup and carrying a briefcase. In need of a restroom and because I am still physically a woman, I head into the women's restroom (if that is the law).
