What if I don't want to go back to the 50s?

Have you ever spoken to a women on the phone but called her "sir"? There are some women that are female, are born female, live female, but I swear they should have been men.
No one can hear your voice on a message board, and I don't think that's a coincidence.
i think this is some sort of slight against me. You can call me Ms. Spam, sir.

How often do you have strangers of uncertain gender in your home, MG? Human strangers I mean.
Is it the stranger part that makes a difference? Or the uncertain gender part?
Making law based on emotional reactions to uncommon situations doesn't seem like a good idea to me. Transgendered people are only 0.3% of the US population.

But we need laws to protect minorities.
I've only had one person whose gender I didn't know in my personal bathroom. That I know of. And that's the thing; who is going to be checking people to make sure they use the correct bathroom?
So are you saying the reason we have gender-separate bathrooms in public is because there are more people whose genders we can't determine by looking at them in public than use my personal bathroom? I don't understand this.

No one, which makes the constantly asking that silly, not the law itself. It's a law that would only be enforced if there's a complaint 99% of the time, same as always.

Really? There are lots of unisex bathrooms here... Mostly in restaurants or bars or galleries what have you, not public restrooms. No one seems to care that much, and we're all stuffy and English.
Stuffy? You've got chavs.
I'm more making fun of the fact that you rarely hear someone dropping a nasty **** in a women's restroom, unless they think they're alone. My husband tells me that men's bathrooms are another story.
