Ignoring my personal opinions on transgenders, do you expect me to be ok with a grown man walking into a bathroom my wife is currently using? Sure he won't get away with anything that would/could happen, but the "damage" would already be done.
Seeing as how it's probably already happened a number of times, I imagine you'll be fine with it. You might notice from the extreme paucity of news about grown "men" presenting as men and using the women's bathroom that your fears are utterly without support. I'm also rather confused with the entire idea of having a problem with someone who looks like a man going into the women's bathroom. Have you ever seen an androgynous woman go into the bathroom? A particularly masculine one? One that is indeed female in every way that you define female, but which you genuinely think is a male? Unless you're checking genitals, your wife is already sharing a bathroom with people who, for all anyone knows, are undeniably male. So what?
In any case, do you concede that this issue is without cost? Unless you meant the Target thing is a cost; if so, then your definition encompasses more or less any consequence, which means that it would be impossible to name any position on either side of the aisle that doesn't have an associated cost. I think you either concede the point or need to start defining your terms.
Logan: Please define "my" side. I actually have never voted Democrat in a presidential election. As for the picture of Trumps head? Do you really want me to pull up the pictures of Obama with a noose around his neck? Not only are those tasteless, offensive, troubling to his then-very young daughters, but they also have connotations of racism. So which one's worse? But in any case, I have no problem with Kathy Griffin's picture. Maybe it's because of all the GWAR concerts I've been to, but it just isn't really that big of a deal to me.
Lastly, I'm not sure what I was supposed to be responding to in regards to non-white days. Did you have some sort of point to make?
