    I'm not sure tbh... In one way, at least their 'bits' would be in the correct place, so I'd probably say yes.


    Again, with unisex toilets, why should a girl have to be in the same toilet as a 50 year old guy... Unless you're talking about having 4 separate toilets? Guys, girls, disabled, unisex?
    I did mean separate toilets, but even that brings its own problems. Obviously there's the financial cost of having another set of toilets, and also one could argue that it's a form a segregation, though I'd dispute that.

    This is one of those situations where it's seemingly impossible to please everyone, if anyone.

    WTH even is this non-binary thingie... we can't call them transsexuals? (I mean no offence to anyone but to me this just seems like changing a name while it poses no problem...)
    It's my understanding that non-binary is sort of a subset of transsexual. Transsexuals identify as something other than what they biologically are. Some transsexuals identify as the other binary gender, and some, which we call non-binary, identify as neither binary gender. They're overlapping groups of people, but not synonymous.

    I'm against this idea.
    This is far too multifaceted, it is and should be a set group of male or female. Those who think they are of the opposite sex can receive 'gender realignment' surgery.

    I don't want to seem harsh but this just doesn't make sense.

    Nay.
    I never thought I'd say this but I agree with DMcGovern here.

    I think I shall come back to the good ol' side of things.

    Ayers, do you also believe being transspecies is a real thing that should be acknowledged, should I be able to claim to be a hawk and be protected? How about even trans kingdom and identify as a pot plant? Or maybe even trans domain and identify as an amoeba? Why stop there, why should identity be limited to living things, should somebody be able to identify as bookshelf or a volcano without having their head looked at?

    And that's the reason I find this whole thing of being non-binary or relating to the sex you're not ****ing ridiculous!

    Why should a 9 year old girl have to be in a bathroom where there could be some 40 year old guy who 'identifies' as female...

    Similarly, I'd've probably freaked the **** out (literally probably would've **** myself) if I were in a toilet at the age of 9 and saw some woman who identified as male in there!
    You know, there have been precisely 0 cases of a transgender woman assaulting someone in a public loo. And it's quite telling that the justification for excluding transgender people from using the toilet that matches their gender identity is "given the opportunity I absolutely would be a sex offender"

    You know, you usually can't tell a transgender person is transgender unless they tell you. You know why? Because they usually dress as the gender they identify with and often have surgeries so that their body matches that of a not transgender person.

    You will have been to a public loo at the same time as a transgender person. You know what happened? You both had a wee, washed your hands and left. Exciting right?

    Which toilet would this woman stick out in? The ladies or the gents? And why is it any of your business?

    You forget, gender is a social construct that is independent of sex so people can invent a gender a minute and not be wrong about it, apparently.

    Wait so do you agree with this notion or are you informing me? If someone makes up a gender, I will still identify them as either male or female in my head before I can even think about it.

    (Original post by Kay_Winters)


    Some people are both male and female, that is intersex, that is however something different. Someone who is non-binary doesn't feel, as I understand it, that they belong on either side of the gender binary, male and female, but somewhere in between. This is a rising thing, with more and more people who feel this way openly choosing to identify this way.

    I don't understand how someone can feel "male" or feel "female". What does feeling female mean? If it means you wish to act in the way a female does, that doesn't actually make you female. All you are doing is acting/thinking upon the ways in which society has portrayed females to act. You are, by biological definition, still either male or female.

    Transspeciesism and the other things you list are a bit odd, I'll admit, but as long as they're doing no one any harm I don't see a problem.
