Dallas Voice columnist Leslie McMurray weighs in on the Planet Fitness transgender locker room controversy:

I’m pissed off; I’m perplexed, and I’m scared. I’ll try and sort out what’s swirling in my pretty little head.
On Feb. 28, a female member of the Planet Fitness in Midland, Mich., complained to management about someone who “looked like a man” being in the women’s locker room. The woman who made the complaint ultimately had her membership revoked, with Planet Fitness officials citing as their reason the woman’s disruptive activities in warning other female members that the gym might let “men” into the women’s locker room facilities.
Planet Fitness has a policy of “No Judgment” and permits members to use whatever facilities match their “sincere, self-reported gender.”
Fine. But honestly, I’m conflicted.
I have held off on addressing this. My fear was that the person in the locker room was a cross-dresser, and that’s what she appears to be: no hormones, no transition.
To me, that is abuse of the privilege and is exactly what the opposition wanted in order to illustrate their point that “men” who “feel like a woman today” can waltz into women-only spaces with impunity.
That makes me sick.

Transwomen are men who have every right to use male facilities. There is nothing “wrong” with feminized men using the appropriate male restroom.

If a trannie ever says he is a trannie, transgender, trans-sexual what have you, he is transphobic. According to their philosophy, –their story that they are sticking to, they are women. What woman do you know says she is a trannie, transgender, or trans-sexual? She says she is a woman, or female. What woman do you know puts trans- anything in her bio? Or reminds people she is a woman? In what situation would I have to remind my friends and family that I am in fact a woman?
Are we staying in character or not, or is it only limited to females being forced to pretend like the males are in character 24/7 when it is obvious that they are not?
It’s like the emperor fighting for the right to be naked although he claims not to be naked and demands that no one else calls him naked. “I…

Stacie Laughton, First openly transgender State Representative, arrested for making bomb threats to hospital in his district

NASHUA — Stacie Laughton, the state’s first openly transgender legislator who was elected to the House of Representatives and then withdrew her candidacy days later, said Thursday that she is the person responsible for calling in a hoax bomb threat at a local hospital.
After spending two weeks receiving treatment at a Vermont hospital for bipolar disorder, Laughton walked into the Nashua Police Department at noon on Thursday and turned herself in on a warrant for the Feb. 27 incident.
“I have had a mental illness my whole life, and I guess this was my worst break with it. I was untreated for a long time, and I didn’t have medication,” Laughton told the New Hampshire Union Leader, adding she is very remorseful for her actions.
Laughton said she was not in the right frame of mind when she called in a bomb threat to Southern New Hampshire Medical Center around 8:30 a.m. on Feb. 27. Laughton, who also suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, described feelings of extreme impulsivity when she made the phone call.
“I wasn’t trying to hurt anyone, and it was totally out of character for me. I have put a lot behind me, and I never thought I would do this in a million years,” she said. Laughton is expected to be charged with a felony for calling in a fake bomb threat, which prompted a systematic search of the hospital by local authorities and hospital security.”

The point is that it’s rather rude to tell a woman to suck your balls. (For the avoidance of doubt, I did not write the post to which he linked, nor have I ever written anything for that site. If I had, I’d own up to it. It’s a good site.)
I asked Cohen whether I was to take his retweet as an endorsement:
