Last week, I wrote about how gender-neutral “full-on, multi-stall, chat-at-the-sink bathrooms” make me feel anxious for irrational reasons. This week, I came across VCU’s gender-inclusive restroom map which has an important qualifier for the restrooms contained therein: single-stall! Way less anxiety for everyone.
Tangential thought: As an official old person, I’m excited to be a part of a community that has folks dedicated to thinking about these sorts of things—mostly so I can continue thinking about them, too.
Important and hopefully obviously note: I recognize that my anxiety about multi-stall gender-neutral bathrooms is trivial and irrational but do know that, for some folks, single-stall bathrooms are a matter of privacy and safety.
