"We respect the rights of all customers and employees....

Employees and customers may use any restroom that corresponds with and is based upon the gender identity they publicaly and exlusively assert and express."

Now, I don't take retailhellunderground.com as a definitive reference, but if this is real I applaud them and think it's a Good Thing.

Well, the Huffington Post says it's real ( http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/18/mcdonalds-transgender-rights-ba throom_n_3103022.html).

It's dated 2006 and applies only to the stores run by one franchisee but HuffPo says it's going viral.

Well I can foresee problems with "exclusively".

But then I tend to look at policies and think "how can someone who has it in for me twist this to use against me?"

Is there any sane alternative, to thinking that way? I suppose one doesn't have to operate as if that were actually true, 100% of the time; but IMO Sanity requires that sort of thought, at least at the level of an idea generator/'something to think about'.

Alas, most of the world considers that to be insanely paranoid.

Then again, those same folks don't grasp the concept of other people having different "agendas" much less other people thinking "differently" *without* said thinking necessarily being "wrong".

Right up until you mention parenting, at which point there is no paranoia deep enough.
