This time by the government, the state of Florida now want to check our papers before we enter the bathroom. If you have a “F” on your drive license you get to use the women’s bathroom and conversely if you have a “M” on your drive license you get to use the men’s bathroom.
BILL NOW REQUIRES TRANSGENDER PEOPLE TO HAVE THEIR PAPERS BEFORE USING RESTROOMThe bill has been changed to read,

A bill that would ban transgender people from using their preferred public bathrooms has now made its way through its second committee, but not without some changes. The bill has been amended to make an exception for some transgender people who have legally changed their gender on government documentation. In essence, it means transgender people would need to have their papers on them to pee.
The bill was introduced by Rep. Frank Artiles, a Miami Republican, after the Miami-Dade County Commission passed an ordinance that added gender identity and presentation to the county's Human Rights Ordinance, effectively banning discrimination against transgender people in areas of housing, employment, and, yes, accommodations such as public restrooms, fitting rooms, and locker rooms. Artiles claims that the ordinance would prevent male sex offenders and other perverted, unsavory characters from entering women's bathrooms and that it's a matter of public safety.
Of course, no such incidents have been reported in Miami-Dade since the ordinance took effect and are almost unheard of in other states and municipalities that have passed protections for transgender individuals.
"Female" means a biological female or a person who has a valid driver license or United States passport that describes the person as female on the license or passport.So what we have now is a privileged bill where those who can afford to go to therapy can now pee in peace. If you cannot afford a therapist or the fee to change your driver license, too bad, you’re screwed and keep your legs crossed. The bill now exposes crossdressers to a greater risk of violence because they cannot use the bathroom of their gender expression.
"Male" means a biological male or a person who has a valid driver license or United States passport that describes the person as male on the license or passport.
