In this Huffington Post piece, Carlos A. Ball makes an argument for transgender-friendly bathrooms in the workplace.
The piece has some issues (too many to name, maybe).
And still, it makes some interesting points about the history of bathrooms as contested spaces. And further, it provides odd insight into how a gay mainstream might talk about gender-variant folks and restrooms.
I recently learned that the Center on Halsted made the decision not to de-gender many of their restrooms. Part of the argument for this decision was that many transgender people have worked hard for the right to use one restroom or the other. My feeling is that maybe no one should have to work at all in the first place...
I vote for gender-neutral restrooms. What's your take?
