Nobody should be beat up for simply entering a sex-segregated communal restroom, assuming that is what happened.

But why did this male-identifying female even ask which restroom she should use? She appeared male. Why didn't she simply access the male restroom?

TIFs confound me. They self-exclude from womanhood...make attempts to appear male, but then continue to access female sex-segregated spaces, services, and sports when the need arises, thereby helping to ruin the sex-segregated nature of these phenomona.

Not even a known sex offender?

I've heard some case of a TIFs actually killing someone for not accepting her as a man. But when it came time for jail, she choose women's jail for some reason despite how invalidating and dysphoric that would make her.

Ugh... And that awful story about a "brave transman" who had to bravely put on her mother's dress and paint her nails to be allowed to leave Ukraine. Not the women volunteering in the army, nope, it's dealing with "dysphoria" that's brave smh...

As a man you don't get to judge women who keep themselves safe from rape and male violence.

Fair. But I will judge a trans who murders people for "misgendering", but accepts that "misgendering" when faced with real danger. Or someone who claims she is brave just for putting on a dress and painting her nails, while there are actually brave women like my sisters who had to escape the country not just by themselves, but with their kids who they had to protect and take care of the whole way. Real bravery is to get a 3 year old child safe through a panicking people, through a packed train and bus, not "dealing with dysphoria".

"Not even a known sex offender"? NO. For one, doubt very much that those doing the beating up would even know that he WAS a sex offender. And, two, I did write "for simply entering a sex-segregared communal restroom." And, three, I'm not in favor of mob rule...prefer the Rule of Law, no matter how flawed it might be. Also, there is the option of simply detaining a sex offender who has entered a sex-segregated space: I don’t trust a mob of violent men (they're almost always men, right) to wail upon another man with restraint and good judgement...just don't.
