Public restrooms can be a tricky thing where gender is concerned. Restroom genders can be mandated by many things; building codes, plumbing codes, safety regulations, and even the offensive “bathroom bills”. While this can cause problems in terms of accessibility for everyone, for members of the trans/non-binary community it is a matter of safety. Public restrooms are not a safe space for them and merely trying to use a restroom can put them at risk. At no time is this more acutely noticeable as when one is in desperate need of a restroom. Now is that time.
