UndercoverKitty007:  it doesn’t bother me, use whatever restroom you feel comfortable. i mean think about it, when you go to a restaurant, some places have one bathroom, are you not going to use it because a male or transgender has probably used it?

if i gotta go, i gotta go – i have even used a mens bathroom just because the line was too long to wait for the women’s bathroom and surprisingly the mens bathroom was always cleaner than the womens

I don’t care. Anyone can use whichever bathroom they identify with imo.

The only thing I want for the bathrooms in the US is better doors that don’t have cracks that you can see through.

I literally don’t care. Pee where you want people! Power to the potty!

I don’t care about where to pee – I think the locker room issue is a different story…particularly in schools.

UndercoverKitty007:  I don’t care either. What I REALLY want to know is how did this just now come up? I assume transgender people have been using the bathroom for the sex they identify with for years. Why all of a sudden do people care? We were just fine before!

RedHeadKel:  I think it came up because of interfering people at schools and other public places stopping trans people from using the bathroom for the gender they identify with. 

Tbh, I don’t fully understand the point of gendered bathrooms – just put a bunch of stalls in a room for privacy and I’m good. I don’t care now what the person in the stall next to me is doing – why should I care how they are doing it?

Also – is anyone else a little disturbed that people’s use of bathrooms has become a legislative and political issue?

I have stage fright so don’t really want anyone around when I’m trying to pee.

That said, I would be lying if said it wouldn’t startle me to walk into the ladies restroom and see a man in there. Not sure of the likelihood of that really– considering most people are in stalls and you’d only encounter it at the sink washing hands, but it would definitely make me do the, “shit I totally walked into the mens restroom” thing. 

I feel like a lot of the outrage in this is coming from men primarily.

As long as I can use the bathroom I don’t care.  Way to many people making a huge stink about this.

LadyBear:  Ooooh, okay. It IS crazy how it’s spiraled out of control, then. I mean, I can think of way more worthy issues for people to fight for (ie: my personal one is animal abuse and that people should be held accountable for it)

I also read about a few women who were harassed for going to the ladies room because they look a bit less femine than “expected” for lack of a better word.

OMG, you are so right. Why oh why is this an issue??? A political issue???

I seriously don’t even pay attentino to people in public bathrooms. There could be gobs of manly looking men going to the bathroom in there and I would never notice.

UndercoverKitty007:  All I know is I drink A LOT of water and always have to pee so as long as there’s a bathroom available, I don’t care who I share it with!

I may start the “political” side of this….maybe. I have no issues with transgender people or individuals that relate to TRULY being the opposite sex using whichever bathroom….what I DO have a problem with is that it has become such a HUGE issue and has gotten so much public attention that those who do NOT TRULY identify as the opposite sex will take advantage of this and in turn you will have to worry about pedophiles, rapists, peeping Toms, etc. There have been several cases of this so far and many of them have not made the news. Like a PP said, why is it such an issue now and getting so much publicity? I thought that transgenders already used the bathroom they identified with? I’m sure I have been in the same bathroom as a transgender before. Either way this won’t stop me from shopping at Target or places like that…Target is the place to go for all my needs! They seriously have EVERYTHING! I’ll just be more vigiliant of my surroundings, I suppose….if something doesn’t feel right, then use common sense. Most of the time, people want to go to the bathroom and get out…we have more shopping (or eating) to do, lol!

I very disappointed in the POTUS decree for school integration bathrooms/facilities, announced last week in the USA. Ugh.

Not the least of the issues is that bathrooms have no security monitoring, by law, so that’s why fights and such happen here. Now we make them co-ed congregating spaces? For what purpose? Social engineering? If public unisex bathrooms can’t be reconciled at the adult level, why send it down to the kids?

Sigh. 

I’ve got no problems with single occupancy lavatories. Make every building have airplane style or portable potties style facilities. But phase it in, because we can’t afford to remodel the urban landscape in so short a time, for such reasons as POTUS discussed.

Just my $0.02.

RedHeadKel:  yes! The new laws are just a solution in search of a problem.
