21 Assaults violating women's privacy recorded by The Conservative Family Research Council under the new "transgender-friendly" policies. Where are the women's rights activists now? 

One cannot help to notice that women's rights activists seem to be missing in cases like the one raised by The Conservative Family Research Council. The organization has compiled a list of 21 incidents of men assaulting or violating women's privacy in public bathrooms, warning that despite what activists claim, transgender-friendly policies do increase the risk of such crimes. Where is outspoken Senator Elizabeth Warren or former Speaker Nancy Pelosi advocating for these violated women? 

As reported by The Christian Post, FRC wrote in its issue brief that non-discrimination laws that allow people to go into bathrooms based on their gender identity, rather than their birth sex, are giving sexual predators the opportunity to exploit the circumstances and commit voyeurism and sexual assault.

"It is important to note that the concern is not that transgendered individuals are more likely to be sexual predators, but rather that sexual predators could exploit such laws by posing as transgendered in order to gain access to women and girls," FRC clarified.

"Beyond this, when companies such as Target implement any-sex bathroom/dressing room policies, it encourages criminals to take advantage of these policies to commit crimes," it added.

The group noted that transgender activists have "scoffed" at suggestions of this heightened risk, and have denied that many such incidents occur. With that in mind, FRC compiled a list of 21 cases reported in the U.S. stretching back to 1999, but most within the last 10 years, where men violated the privacy of women in bathrooms, locker rooms, and other private spaces.
