    Never mind luxuries like respect or dignity; you're depriving her of safety.

    Think about it: Forcing a transwoman to use a men's restroom -- as people with your mindset are wont to do -- is dangerous. It's not that you would attack her; I really have no doubt that you wouldn't do such a thing. It's that there clearly exist men who would attack her.

    So, yeah: if you insist that a transwoman is a male until you're ok with calling her a female, then you're endangering her. Think about that, won't you?

    Let us all have the strength to see the humanity in our enemies, and the courage to let them see the humanity in ourselves.
