Transgender people deserve privacy, dignity in public bathrooms — Maine Opinion — Bangor Daily News

Transgender people deserve privacy, dignity in public bathrooms — Maine Opinion — Bangor Daily News: "A proposal to amend the Maine Human Rights Act has the goal of protecting the privacy of the nontransgender public in public bathrooms. This isn’t necessary and, instead, it has the potential to embarrass transgender people and put them at risk of harassment.

The bill, LD 1046, sponsored by Rep. Kenneth Fredette, would exempt businesses and institutions from the discrimination provisions of the Human Rights Act on the use of bathrooms and shower facilities."

As you may recall, there was a recent favorable decision in the Maine courts on trans bathroom usage, which you can read about here.
