These laws do absolutely nothing to protect women in the restrooms. In fact it makes them even more at risk. Firstly, many transmen are just as “predatory” as a cisgender male (that is to say hardly predatory at all) and women will have to share their restrooms with them, secondly any man intending to attack a woman in the restrooms can enter without recourse by just claiming that he was born female. This means that women can’t even hide in the restroom just to escape a man anymore.
Another downside is that any prostitute can now ply for trade in the men’s restrooms without committing any felony. All she has to do is to say that she was born male. Ladies, do you really want your man to lawfully share a restroom with a prositute?
