    This is society now folks. This is what you wanted it to be. I'm just playing ignorant to most of it now because it seems to become more complicated with each passing day. That's the 21st Century. People complaining over bathroom door signs.

    But being transexual isn't a disability.

    This case makes no sense at all. I can't see how changing the signs will make any difference.
    i'm not expert, but i reckon it's a symptom of an illness (a mental one) and not an illness in and of itself.

    Lol .... Only way to fix the problem with everyone happy is to just add trans toilers male/female ...
    But if they have their own bathroom, they'll complain they are being segreagated. This is something you cant win.

    Exactly that's what I thought... it would've made more sense if she was non-binary or agender but she does identify as a LADY so why can't she use the LADIES' toilets... hmmm

    Yeah being made to use the disabled toilets was discrimination I agree (didn't read that part ) - but the signs thing? come on...
    Just because you identify as something else doesn't mean you're it. People just agree to that so no ones feelings get hurt.

    That's an entirely different topic m8
    we're talking about a trans lady who was offended at signs on a toilet because she felt discriminated against even tho she's living her life as a lady and could've just used the ladies' toilets
    when it comes to gender you are what you identify as since the definition of gender is "the state of being male or female (typically used with reference to social and cultural differences rather than biological ones)."

    here's the important part: "rather than biological ones"

    so yes she is a woman even if her biological body doesn't match her gender.

    Just another example of an angry at the world liberal. This is what happens when you let PC gone mad continue in government and politics.
