With all the nasty discussion, maybe this will help explain the bigger picture.
I find this whole discussion silly. I understand where the locker room discussion is more complicated. However, for YEARS, I’ve met friends at a local coffee shop/restaurant.It’s a chain, but I’ve only been to two. The bathrooms have ALWAYS been unisex! They are large enough for a wheelchair, have changing tables, and ONE DOOR with a LOCK. Don’t know why this hasn’t caught on. Sometimes the simple solution is the best.
What you said? Amen.
The whole bathroom thing is just a way to formalize the falsehood that just being transgender constitutes a threat to public safety. One has to wonder just how much more ignorant people can be.
I think Kroger has the right idea.
You’re right. It’s not about the bathrooms, really. It’s the mistaken and hateful notion that the transgender community poses a threat. Frankly, I don’t care who’s in the next stall, so long as I’m able to not have to wait in line a long, long time.
