Remove the NO WOMEN sign from Fassifern Railway Station

This petition had 19 supporters


To the Hon. ANDREW CONSTANCE, MP NSW TRANSPORT. 

We, the constituents of NSW and more specifically the FTM community, wish to have the sign at Fassifern Railway Station on the men's toilet removed as it is in our opinion nothing more than outdated, inflammatory and ridiculous. 

It is also distressing to the transgender community to see not only on the station but from the trains that pass through the station. It is in fact not an offence for a recognised transgender person in Australia to use a toilet that corresponds with their gender identity, and even if they are not a recognised transgender person in the law's eyes, common sense dictates that a trans man would use a men's toilet and a trans woman would use a ladies toilet. To suggest otherwise would be tantamount to discrimination and lead to assault and safety issues. 

It is high time this offensive sign was removed as it is not seen anywhere else in any other toilet on the NSW rail system and its in our opinion an unnecessary aggravation. 

I trust that you see our position on this and organise the  removal of this sign forthwith. 

Regards, the FTM community in NSW (organised by David Thomas).
