According to a Berkshire Eagle article Massachusetts may become the first state in the country to offer its residents full marriage equality and transgender protections under law. The bills lead sponsor Senator Benjamin B.

As usual there is the regular potty protesters. But as usual this argument "Carries No Water" (pun intended). Criminals are abhorrent of portraying any perceived vulnerability and cross dressing in the act of a felony would put that person in prison for a very long time where pedophiles and deviants are regarded as the lowest of life. As has been proven across the country in areas where gender protective laws are in place this is a more than adequent deterrent.
