Man Undressing in Women's Room Cites Transgender Rule

The Seattle Parks and Recreation department is facing an obstacle regarding gender bathroom rules. 

According to KING-TV,  a man undressed in a women's locker room on February 8, citing a new state rule that allows people to choose a bathroom based on gender identity.

Seattle Parks and Recreation says  a man wearing shorts entered the women's locker room at Evans Pool and took off his shirt. Women alerted staff, who told the man to leave, but he said, "the law has changed and I have a right to be here."

Employees claim the man made no verbal or physical attempt to identify as a woman, yet he still cited a new rule that allows bathroom choice based on gender identification.

The man later returned a second time while young girls were changing for swim practice. No arrests were made, according to the KING-TV report.

A Seattle Parks spokesman says they're still working on the issue. At this time there's no specific protocol for how someone should demonstrate his or her gender in order to access a bathroom.
