Rob Anders' transgender washroom comments have sparked yet another round of outrage on Twitter aimed at the Tory MP.

The member for Calgary West set Twitter ablaze Thursday after CBC reported that he is worried a new bill aimed at making "gender identity" and "gender expression" grounds for discrimination will allow transgender men to gain access to women's washrooms. Anders expressed concerns about the safety of children in a petition on the matter.

Anders provoked another Twitter firestorm earlier this week after an iPolitics story quoted the MP suggesting Thomas Mulcair helped "hasten" Jack Layton's death. Anders apologized soon after.
