Trans women don't need to walk into restrooms with women and children. They can use a separate facility if they still have male genitalia. They are not being suppressed or denied anything thing except their own ego. If they are tying their self-esteem to peeing in women's restrooms, that's their problem. I don't see how the word "protection" even comes into play. Really...it's women and children who need protected in this case.
Competing in sports is more complicated. Horses are handicapped. Other sports compete against own weight. Trans women have a distinct physical advantage for lots of reasons I don't need to list. The ones who need "protected" here again are women, not the trans women. This is sports....not a drama class where a trans women is being told they can't audition for a female lead.
Back to my original point.
I think the word "protection" is likely being misused and abused in the courts and people are just afraid to push back lest they be labeled homophobic and boycotted and openly shamed the way liberals like to play the game.
Again....not everyone gets everything they want...
or even what they need.

You need to get a better education regards to trans rights. You obviously are lacking in them. Public restroom use is about public accomidation. To deny it for the trans community is a violation of equal protection.
As for sports.
(CNN)A federal judge says transgender women and girls in Idaho cannot be banned from sports teams corresponding to their gender, blocking an Idaho law that attempted to do so.
"This is a victory for all women and girls in Idaho. Trans people belong in sports," wrote the American Civil Liberties Union, which provided legal representation in the case.
Gov. Brad Little signed the "Fairness in Women's Sports Act" in March, which would not allow athletes to participate on a women's team without first verifying that person's "internal and external reproductive anatomy" if her sex is disputed. But Judge David Nye granted a motion for a preliminary injunction against the act Monday.
The law was challenged by transgender cross-country athlete Lindsay Hecox, a student at Boise State University.
A second plaintiff in the case is a 17-year-old cisgender athlete -- unnamed in the lawsuit because she is a minor -- who is concerned that she may be forced to invasively "prove" her gender because of her athletic build and "masculine" personal traits.
Judge Nye agreed that was unfair and "being subject to a sex dispute is itself humiliating." The law does not have a similar requirement for male athletes, Nye noted.
The preliminary injunction is not the final say in the lawsuit, but Nye said in his 87-page order "plaintiffs are likely to succeed in establishing the Act is unconstitutional."
