Quote from offlabel
I could see severe psychic trauma to a female room mate of a transgendered woman that began, for example, masturbating in front of her. The sexual trauma women bring to in patient psychiatric facilities is profound and risking exposure of a woman to another traumatic event in the interests of "accommodation" is unconscionable.
Get an empty room.
The assumption that a transwoman would masturbate in front of a ciswoman is rife with inherent bias and, I hope you hear this kindly, a lot of ignorance about being trans.
Simply because someone is transgendered does NOT make them any more or less likely to have paraphilias or inappropriate sexual behavior.
Conversely, transfolk are at exceptionally high risk for violence done to them by others, both physical and sexual. To assume that only ciswomen are at risk of being traumatized by the POTENTIAL for a transwoman's inappropriate sexual behavior is to completely ignore that the transwoman is MORE likely to be at risk for psychological and emotional abuse, if not also physical harm, because your facility is treating her differently.
Please, please, please educate yourself more and get your manager to bring in quality training about supporting trans, nonbinary, and gender non-conforming individuals.
Psych hospitals need to be safe and accessible for ALL people.
