    But none the less I respect your views. Still can't exactly understand how any person would support a grown man going into a womans/girls dressing room lol but oh well

    Well just to ask a question why would a transgender man admit to going into the girls locker room to watch them undress? That would likely get him arrested am I correct?

    Please cite one credible source that a man who identifies as a woman has ever gone into a woman's restroom, or locker room to watch them undress. Just one. A transgender person is going into the restroom they feel comfortable in to do one thing...to use the restroom. All your hypothetical what if scenarios have never happened. What has happened? Things like this flashing incident in broad daylight in a parking lot, or the pedophile arrested for taking pictures of little boy IN THE MEN'S ROOM at the State Fair a couple years back. But not once have you ever heard about it happening with a transgender person in a ladies room. Just like in your anti-same sex marriage...take your religious mumbo jumbo and go away.

    So you're actually comparing this to a locker room? A locker room where any grown man can go in as long as he identifys as a woman and watch little girls and women undress? You actually think that it is normal for grown men to be able to share a locker room with women and girls? Hate to break it to you but none of that is normal it's disgusting. Just like this little punk doing what he did. Why make it easier ?

    he has that "I can't believe this is happening" mugshot face. Like what he did was ok. Or he's high on drugs. Or both.

    It obviously went over your head. It was meant as a dig at those that think the bathrooms could or should be policed to check for genders. My point is that horrible evil things will happen regardless of the laws in place, hence the 3 charges this "punk" was charged with did not prevent him from flashing that poor child.

    If he did this in a locker room, under the repelled Charlotte ordnance, would it be a crime? It should be.
