The newsiest news lately is bathrooms….and change rooms too if you want to lump them all together. Everybody is in a tither about bathrooms. Im just gonna make a short post about how I feel about the matter and let the comments decide for themselves how they feel.
In my workplace we have 2 Trans. Both are male that have identified themselves as female. One has made the outward transition to female by wearing ladies clothes etc. and the other, while taking meds to make the change, still outwardly seems to identify as a male by physical appearance, clothing etc.. Ive seen both frequently in the store. 1 uses the ladies room and the other still uses the mens.
I don’t care. There ya go. There are things about this overall situation, as a conservative Christian, that would be worthy of a theological discussion but this isn’t the post for it.
If you have to go to the bathroom, and you look and dress like a lady, then use the ladies room, or a family style room where you can lock yourself in privately and not worry about who might see you and be offended. I mean, whats gonna freak people out more? a person who appears to be a woman walking in to a women’s restroom? or a mans? I understand that mens rooms often don’t have “stalls” but perhaps its time for all bathrooms to have them. I dunno…
Lockerooms are a little dicey for me at this time. Thats when the gloves come off…and the shorts, and the bras and the makeup for all to see. I still feel that in THIS case, whats under your clothes might matter when thats what is about to be exposed in a public shower in a lockeroom.
Perhaps the future lies in construction…where buildings have bathrooms…just a line of single-holers with locked doors. no labels, no freaking out…but what is your opinion??
