Everything You Need to Know About Denver’s Gender-Neutral Bathrooms
Gender Neutral what does that mean and how will it affect me?
According to Wikipedia, "gender -neutral describes the idea that policies, language, and other social institutions should avoid distinguishing roles according to people's sex or gender, in order to avoid discrimination arising from the impression that there are social roles for which one gender is more suited than another."
Denver just passed a law that all single occupant public restrooms in the city have gender-neutral signs. This is beneficial in many ways! If you are a parent of a young child, you do not have to worry about finding someone of the same sex to take a child to the bathroom when the caregiver is a different gender. In addition, it helps people who are tired of waiting in line for the women's bathroom at businesses that have more than one single-occupant restroom. So there are a lot of conveniences for everyone in the city.
This requirement for gender-neutral signage applies to single-occupant and family or assisted-use toilet facilities. For a complete understanding of the gender-neutral laws click here.
I for one use the women or men's bathroom on the golf course, whichever one is available. And thankfully most of the time the bathrooms on my course are clean.
I hate waiting in lines and I am glad I am not breaking the law.
Therefore, the next time you head to Denver and you need to use the bathroom gender-neutral means anyone can use it.
