Citizens in Maryland have launched a voter initiative against a law approved by the legislature that allows people to use sex-segregated facilities according to their “perceived” gender.  Opponents charge the law effectively allows men to use women’s bathroom and shower facilities. They point to cases such as a man in Indianapolis who allegedly went into a women’s locker room at a YMCA and watched girls, ages 7 and 10, shower. The new Maryland law, the “Fairness For All Marylanders Act,” would allow the man “to do the same thing in Maryland if he simply claims to identify as a woman,” according to the citizens group MDPetitions, which is collecting signatures to put the issue on the fall ballot. Critics of the bill also cite the case of convicted sexual predator Christopher Hambrook in Toronto. Hambrook claimed to be a transgender and preyed on women at two Toronto shelters.
