OSHA safety agency says women's bathrooms safer with creepy men in them

OSHA is concerned with safety – i.e., chemical, biological, and physical hazards in the workplace, and everything from the dangers of toxic chemicals to dangerous machinery that can hurt workers.  That's why speaking out on the issue of letting men into women's bathrooms is clearly central to OSHA's mission.

 According to the Williams Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles, OSHA said an estimated 700,000 adults in the United States are transgender — meaning their internal gender identity is different from the sex listed on their birth certificate.

Only 700,000?  That sounds low to me.  I would think it's at least 20-30 million people, right?

[From the agency:]“Restricting employees to using only restrooms that are not consistent with their gender identity, or segregating them from other workers by requiring them to use gender-neutral or other specific restrooms, singles those employees out and may make them fear for their physical safety"

This makes sense to me.  If men who think they are women are forced to use men's bathroom (which would be unprecedented, as we have never before made men who think they are women use men's bathrooms, not in the history of America), men who think they are women will fear for their physical safety because these men who think they are women will be surrounded by...other men!  However, if men who think they are women use women's bathrooms, and surround themselves with women in various states of undress, everyone will feel safer and more secure.

Men who think they are women simply aren't safe in men's bathrooms.  They stick out like a sore thumb.  Why not let them do the natural thing and use women's bathrooms?  I'm sure women wouldn't mind.

I'm glad OSHA is speaking out on this.  I think this is central to OSHA's mission – the issue of transgendered bathroom usage.  But I want to know why other government agencies haven't spoken out.  Why hasn't the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service spoken out on the issue of transgendered animals in the wild?  Why hasn't the Federal Crop Insurance Service made a special effort to reach out to transgendered farmers who plant hybrid crops?  Why doesn't the National Weather Service study the effects of thunderstorms and flooding on the transgendered?  And why hasn't the Bureau of Indian Affairs done a survey to find out how many female Native Americans are in male Native American bodies?

This is really the central mission of government.  I expect more and more of these agencies whose mission is clearly concerned with sex (like OSHA) to speak out in the days and months to come.
