Should we allow transgender people to use their preferred public bathroom?

This also may be a matter of putting the cart before the horse. While I've been to a number of events that touted unisex toilets with which there were no issues, they were usually pretty progressive affairs. I question whether general society is ready to embrace a unisex lavatory. I should also reinforce this with an anecdote: at a queer poetry night a couple weeks ago, a guy friend and I (also a guy) were lounging in the unisex washroom. On two occasions, a woman would peek in, notice that there were men in the washroom, and then peek out to patiently wait for us to leave, despite the abundance of places available for them to pee. They simply weren't comfortable with it or didn't feel safe - so, there, again, in a space full of supposed progressives, we couldn't allow ourselves to fully get past the arbitrary boundary around where we pee and who we pee with.
Plus this one concert I went to had unisex washrooms and basically people were just having sex in them all night.
