The White House has hired its first openly transgender staff member, Raffi Freedman-Gurspan. He/she will be an outreach and recruitment director for presidential personnel in the Office of Personnel. He/she was previously with the National Center for Transgender Equality’s racial and economic justice initiative.
My only question is: Which restroom will he/she use?
Update: Some libertarians wonder why I care which restroom will be used. Does anyone want their wife or their daughter or their granddaughter using a restroom frequented by men who are dressed as women, but are still men, and have altered their body to resemble a woman, but are still men? I can’t imagine any man, libertarian or otherwise, who wouldn’t care. Is it libertarian to not care which bathroom these people use? Of course not.
I believe that in the near future, the federal government will decree that anyone must be allowed to use the restroom of the gender he/she identifies with. Really, is there any doubt that this is what will be coming next?12:27 pm on August 18, 2015 Email Laurence M. Vance
