Gender-Free, Single Occupant Bathrooms Bill Gaining Support in Vermont
Our bathrooms by the radio station studio are single occupant bathrooms. I've heard a story that when the "ladies" room was out of order, women were getting in trouble for using the "mens" room. But, what's the difference?
Seriously. There isn't a urinal or anything that screams gender specific; it's a bathroom. If you go to Starbucks, there's one, gender neutral bathroom. We all use it without fear.
So, I guess that's why when I saw that Vermont is getting a bunch of backing support for a gender-free, single occupant bathroom bill I scratched my head a little. I mean, at first I was like, "yes! okay!" I feel like it's important for everyone, literally everyone no matter race, gender, age, sexuality, etc that you are comfortable and accepted. It's 2017, it's time we all realize we're all just trying to live together, happily.
But, then I thought why is this even a concern? Like I said, the single occupant bathrooms, why are we claiming a gender on the door in the first place? It should be a sign that says "bathroom" or "you do your business in this room." It's pretty simple in my mind, but maybe I'm not like the rest. I feel like, when ya gotta go ya gotta go. Find a potty and make the magic happen.
