Re-reading this… this is undoubtedly true. Particularly since California law protects the rights of all* male-bodied persons who wish to use the women’s facilities to do so.
*Unless there is some sort of applicable exception for or parole condition placed upon sex crime convicts. Like… if a cis-man is convicted of some sort of crime involving young boys… when he’s released from prison and a registered sex offender is he free to just spend his days lounging in the men’s locker room of the local YMCA? Or is there some rule that says he’s not allowed to do that?
It will be interesting to see if Darren Merager was violating parole by merely being present in the women’s locker room or if it was specific behavior in the locker room that resulted in the charges or both.
