Here's my take on the issue since it's was a hot topic in Houston a few month back when they were voting on a prop for it.
For those who don't know me; I kinda have liberal views on most issues and I lean left in general, I've always loathed the very definition of conservatism. I'm for gay marriage and I'm pro-choice because I believe it's none of my business to tell others how to live their lives, not because I believe these things are great. I think if it doesn't effect me or my life style or family then I shouldn't even have a say in it.
But on this transsexual bathroom issue I find myself completely on the side of conservatives, it's such a dumb losing battle for liberals to bring to the political field, I think transsexuals could have just started using women's bathrooms without talking about it if their transformation is decent enough to not have them recognized and if they're still recognizable as men then it's their own fault, how much do you fuckin want society to bend backward to solve your ridiculous bathroom dilemma? If your appearance still gives away that you're a man; you'd be lying if you tell me you don't get how that would make women uncomfortable with you in the bathroom, lying, period.
In my mind our social contract is based on a mutual you-can-be-or-do-what-you-want-as-long-as-you-don't-get-in-my-personal-space, I think you are a man, I don't deny you your right to identify as a woman and I would even address to you as one but you can't deny me my right to still think of you as a man, that's my personal space. And if I believe you're a man; it's only normal that I'd be weirded out by the thought of you in the women's bathroom, not because of all these silly "he could be a pedophile or a rapist" talking points, how often is that gonna be the case? But simply because I believe you are a man.
That's my 2¢, before this got big outside Texas; it was a bit of a funny topic to me, when I first heard of it on the news I told my friend at work that "of course they wanna use the women's bathroom! who doesn't?! It's so radically cleaner then the men's! If I can't do it then they can't".
