Brazilian city may require separate restrooms for transvestites - the funcrunch files


Dec. 14th, 2005 12:20 pm Brazilian city may require separate restrooms for transvestites

For some reason I found this SF Gate article interesting.

Brings to mind the yummy vegetarian Saturn Café in Santa Cruz, which has addressed the issue by having two unisex bathrooms, with a listing of "contents" on the doors. Though the first time I visited, I stared at each door for several minutes and then ended up asking boyziggy which restroom he thought I should use.

At one place I worked, there was someone who was undergoing a male-to-female transition, and who decided to simply use the mostly-deserted restrooms deep in the basement of the building to avoid upsetting any possible delicate sensibilities of coworkers.

I'm not sure what this means exactly, except that it seems like the idea of special restrooms could really get whacky. What if Republicans decided they didn't want to urinate next to Democrats?

let's just do away with bathroom gender segregation

I think we should just put privacy barriers around urinals, and just make all bathrooms asexual. It would make bathrooms much cheaper. I think it’s silly that we feel the need to pee in separate rooms. I think people who have issues with this should just get over it.
