The Ones Most Likely to Care About Who Uses Women's Restrooms Aren't Women

“Most men think they (transgender people) should use the bathroom assigned to the gender they were born as,” a CBS News poll suggested in May, “while women tend to favor letting transgender people use the bathroom of the gender they identify as.”
Although there is no proof that letting trans people use the lavatory of their choice increases crime, bathroom traditionalists, so to speak, often repeat some version of this fear.

As usual, men who place themselves on top of the hierarchy believe that they know more about lower groups than the lower groups know about themselves, and don't listen to women. And these men don't have a problem forcing a hierarchy on someone else, this time the sexual orientation hierarchy. Hierarchical men don't care what anyone else thinks. What is important to them is building and maintaining hierarchies.
