Texas: Transgender Woman Ticketed For Using Ladies Room

A transgender woman who was ticketed for using the women’s restroom at a Dallas hospital says her status as a convicted sex offender should not play a role in the citation.  Mr. Witherspoon, a convicted serial child rapist who previously raped two girls, engaged in “gender identity or expression” by frightening a woman in a hospital restroom designated for use by women and girls, while wearing earrings, a skirt, and a large bulky ankle GPS device worn by paroled felons considered likely to re-offend. His parole had been previously revoked at least twice: in 2007 when Witherspoon was charged with assault and returned to prison until 2010, and again when he was arrested in 2011 for sending out pornographic photos of himself over the internet. Nevertheless, Lambda Legal representative Ken Upton claimed that pedophilic male serial sex offenders like Mr. Witherspoon should be allowed to access private women and girls’ facilities regardless of legal gender status as long as he and other men are “using the bathroom in a way that is consistent with the gender that they live in day in and day out.”
