A Biblically Correct solution to the transgender bathroom issue

There is only one verse in the Bible that deals directly with the transgender bathroom issue: Deuteronomy 22:5.
The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.

God commands males to wear men's clothing and females to wear women's clothing. Anyone who does otherwise is an abomination to God.

Although the Bible doesn't specifically address the transgender bathroom issue, it seems to say that transgender people are an abomination to God.

So maybe the Biblically Correct solution is to have three separate bathrooms: one for males, one for females, and one for abominations.

Actually, all this verse says is that it's wrong for (say) a trans woman to wear men's clothes.

So if you're Christian and realize you're transgender, you'd better get a new wardrobe ASAP, or you'll be almost as bad as a shellfish.

So interesting question: how to Christians go about declaring something is sinful when it is not covered in the bible? There are no references in the bible to be transgender, yet Christians routinely refer to it as a sin.
