Why so gender binary? I never know which restroom to go!

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    When I was identifying as a man, I got my ID changed from female to male. I don’t identify as male now, but since my ID says male, I use the men’s room. People stare, but they rarely ever say anything to me.

    I have not yet changed my ID to male but identify and pass as one; I get no static in the men’s room but inevitably if I go into a women’s room, the female occupants nail me on being in the wrong bathroom…men don’t pay half the attention to who is in the bathroom, but women may be on higher guard for potentially dangerous situations like voyeurs, stalkers and assaults so I guess I cant blame them even though I am the last guy to do any of those things.

    Look for ‘unisex’ or neutral restrooms, frequent businesses that have them and then list them on so that others will be aware as well.

    I went on the Safe2Pee website, and I was happy to see so many safe restrooms in my neighborhood! I don’t need to use the men’s room…unless those businesses are closed…
