WA State Adopts Transgender Bathroom & Locker Room Policies

The day after Christmas, the Washington State Human Rights Commission has adopted rules which allow transgender individuals to use opposite sex bathrooms. As reported by The Daily Signal the rules "make it illegal for business owners to limit sex-specific facilities (such as bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms) to persons with the anatomical parts of one sex." The article goes on: "The rules, which a state legislator told The Daily Signal took effect on Dec. 26, apply to businesses with eight or more employees. They also dictate that schools should "allow students to use the restroom that is consistent with their gender identity" and in most cases, give transgender students "access to the locker room that corresponds to their gender identity."

For some reason, the Human Rights Commission has not yet posted the final rules.
