I had an incident where one of my officers was assaulted by a trans woman when she was confronted for going in to a female bathroom. The policy, at that time, was that you had to use the restroom of your naturally assigned sex. We wouldn't have even been aware of it but a biological female complained and we had to confront the trans woman to inform her of the policy.
Well, uhhhh, she flipped out and literally physically assaulted one of my officers and was subsequently pepper sprayed and arrested for assault.
Setting aside the issue of the assault, which completely undermined whatever good point she might have had, who's complaint trumps the other? The trans woman who just wants to be treated like the lady or the biological woman who doesn't want men her restroom? Because we cannot accommodate both. One of them is just going to have to deal with it.
Luckily there are laws which dictates how to respond accordingly. And if bad laws surface, like the law in North Carolina which is obviously an attack on gay marriage being passed, then lawful protests are advisable towards pressuring change.
