This is the world we live in now. This is the world we have been living in for years now. This was a non issue I feel until the Caitlyn Jenner ordeal. Than issues started up around the country. Parents around the country demanding their sons be allowed to use the female locker room because that's what they wanted to be. And opening the door for situations like Donna had to encounter. Imagine pulling into a truck stop in the middle of the night seeing just trucks no cars walking into a bathroom and than seeing a "lady" walking in from behind. Pretty scary stuff. For me it's simple, I don't care if you identify as male, female, or a Twinkie wrapper. Whatever the gender is on your drivers license is what bathroom you are to use. Because why do we have to conform to them? Can we not continue to have privacy. It's their choice. The majority of the "transitioning" is probably male to female. And let's be brutally honest here you can usually tell pretty quick whether the individual is a female or not. Pretty much immediately. So what is going to change when you walk into a women's bathroom as a male? Nothing but making them extremely uncomfortable and nervous. Sure same in a men's restroom but there WON'T be any little girls in there etc. If you really have to pee in a women's bathroom that bad, it can wait until you get that a sex change. Or whatever it is to be called.

Usually male to female is the case. As noted by a Dr., "It's easier to dig a ditch than erect a pole."

Perhaps the men are wanting to become female so they can be presidents of a companies diva group?

The problem is Loves!!! Half of the mens rooms are on the right and the other half the left. No consistency whatsoever.... also, womens rooms usee to have the "changing table" signs on them now both do.

I had to pee so badly in training i rain to the bathroom and saw 2 guys at the urinals. i ducked in a stall and went, they didnt notice me. i waited for guys to leave.. but 2 guus walkee in talking and never shut up. they were plumbers fixing a sink. i had full hair and makeup and no jacket i could duck under. I just walked out casually and one said "good night sir" i gave a deep but not deep enough "goodnight" and they both laughed.

oh well

Lmao yes!!! i walked into the womens restroom twice in the last 2 weeks. Looked to the right and didnt notice urinals with sales ads above them and quickly bolted.

Ive also noticed a few transgenders around truck stops and i fall in with the each his own crowd. whatever makes you happy and it doesn't hurt anyone have it and ill support you.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

Just going to add my whole 2 cents here. If it makes me sound like a bigot? Well. So be it.

From a guys point of view, most guys go into the bathroom to do one of three things. Urinate, defecate or wash hands. Sometimes all three, sometimes two or just one. In any combination. But regardless of the reason, most guys simply want to get to get in, get out and continue on with the rest of the day.

Most guys don't talk to others in the bathroom. If there is a conversation, it's usually at the sinks and even then, it's kept to a minimum. And nobody really cares who's in there unless the stalls are full and you really have pay homage to the great porcelain throne. I can't speak for the women's bathroom, but if a woman came into the guys, the event wouldn't even hardly register on the weird-o-meter. In my book, it's a non issue.

Only thing I ever ask for anybody, guy or gal. Please don't clog up the toilets/sinks etc with a massive amounts of toilet paper and/or paper towels and PLUS, for the LOVE of everything unholy. PLEASE, flush the damn commode.

I have a great girlfriend, but rainy I think I'm falling in love with you... LOL. I always thought you were a liberal and you probably are, but I think the left-wing is taking things so far that it's really hard for people with common sense to go along with this BS. BTW, I'm about as hardcore conservative as you can get.

I did just delete a comment that someone made. While I respect the right to having an opinion, expressing that opinion here can also reflect badly on us. I have to draw a line when it comes to people expressing their opinions on this website. I try to be tolerant, but that comment was a bit more than I was comfortable with. It doesn't matter who made it, I'm just letting it be known.

Occasionally - we do wander into some controversial subjects of the day, typically when they intersect with trucking or drivers lifestyle. In this particular case - dealing with guys (or trans) in a womens restroom.

I believe, from personal conversations with truckers and from here on the forum - that most truckers tend to be conservative, or at least have conservative leanings, regardless of what part of the country they hail from. Not sure if that goes along with the personality type it takes to be a trucker or merely coincidence.

I was a die-hard hippie liberal myself, until I got a little older and got to observe and absorb how the world really works. Now I'm a staunch constitutional conservative - not driven by religious mores or bias, but by intellectual common sense.

This particular issue (gender choice vs biology vs personal perspectives) has somehow been force fed into the publix psyche. Likely by intent. It is pervasive in many aspects of our lives. Sports (do m-to-f trans belong competing with women), personal privacy (like the OP here), school and how we raise our children (the indoctrination of gender/sexual preference in our schools), religion (as in the bakery lawsuits against christians for refusing to bake trans/gay cakes).

For a conservative, I'm pretty much live and let live. Sadly though - the views of the few have been forced on the many whether folks like it or not. It wouldn't be such a BIG THING - if the PRESS didn't make it one. But again, sadly enough - it is.

It's good that we can "veer off occasionally" here, and discuss stuff like this rationally. Despite the strong feelings of some folks - there ISN'T ROOM for outright bigotry here.

Most MALES are pretty much aligned at how little we care what goes on in MENS ROOMS. But despite the rabid feminism in america (lately - foaming at the mouth maddog), we are STILL CONCERNED about the safety of women in public/private places, and are concerned about HOW THEY FEEL about a situation that's been thrust upon them through no choice of their own (regardless of whether or not they support the LGBTWhatever movement).

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.
