From November of 2012:
“This is not 1959 Alabama,” Francis told the television station. “We don’t call police for drinking from the wrong water fountain.”
That quote is he-she "Colleen Francis"'s reaction to being told to leave the women's locker room at Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA, because:
According to a police report, the mother of a 17-year-old girl complained after her daughter saw the transgender individual walking naked in the locker room. A female swim coach confronted the man sprawled out in a sauna exposing himself. She ordered him to leave and called police.
What this 45-year-old man doesn't seem to understand is that parading around a women's locker room with your schlong hanging out is not only not okay, but is several universes away from being the same thing as taking a drink from a public water fountain while fully clothed.
We live in a diverse society and we must be willing to tolerate things we disapprove of — even things we find reprehensible, like hipsterism — but I read stories like this and I start to see some reason in even the most ardent social-con's complaints about "perversion" in our society. It's likely a seventeen-year-old girl has at least a passing familiarity with the wangus of the human male variety and maybe even younger girls shouldn't be taught to recoil in horror at the mere thought of a ding-dong, but those two things and a self-appointed sense of entitlement doesn't make it okay to waggle it around in front of girls. That bears repeating: girls — not women — GIRLS. I don't care if it's all right in Europe or Japan or the undiscovered primitive tribes of South America, it's not okay here. Maybe we're backwards and less-evolved, but that doesn't matter so — as Progressives like to scream in our faces so often — deal with it.
Or, apparently, it doesn't matter as long as you don't call yourself transgender and wear women's clothing. If you do, then I guess you have a free pass to show young girls your dingus. Then, when someone calls the police, you can cry about discrimination and have yourself declared the True Victim Here.
Maybe the just thing for Society to do, even if it makes people terribly uncomfortable, is to allow "Colleen Francis" to change his clothes in the women's locker room, but that doesn't absolve him from using some sense. He's not required to be ashamed — though at least an iota of shame would be helpful — but he does need to understand that there are other people in the world he's required to accommodate. In particular, if he is interacting with minors he, as a nominal adult, is required to bend over backwards to accommodate them. Accommodations which would include not walking around in front of them with his trouser snake hanging out. This is not a violation of his civil rights.
Only an entitled jackass would think that it is.
