When I was in Japan in 1956, the public restrooms were for both sexes.  When I was in Germany in the '60s & '70s, the restroom attendants could be either men or women in either restroom.  Then, in 1978 in Munich, I attended a confrerence, and the hotel had saunas.  The women's sauna said "closed, use the men's sauna".  I went in, and there were naked men and women sitting around and enjoying the steam together.  We were in Helsinki, and my wife was in the women's sauna, and a guy walked in looking for his wife.  No one paid any attention to him.  What the hell is it about America?

A cartoon seen in the Philadelphia Gay News "explaining" North Carolina's nasty new law that supersedes Charlotte's and other localities' nondiscrimination ordinances, makes it a crime for trans people to use the appropriate public restroom, and forbids local minimum-wage laws:

The Argument Against Municipal LGBT Protections Explained (outside Othmar Elementary School, a Dept. of Public Works employee in safety vest and hard hat has just replaced 'School Zone - Speed Limit 15' signs with shiny new 'Speed Limit 65' signs. A shocked and confused mom looks on, holding her son protectively; the worker says, 'Orders from the state capitol, ma'am. They say it's too confusing to have a bunch of uneven local ordinances.')(click to enlarge)

A billboard in Portugal celebrating the new law allowing LGBT adoption, signed into law by the outgoing president on Feb. 25

Translation: Jesus had two dads too.

A comment at Joe.My.God.:

"JUST DISCOVERED: THE *TRUE* "TRANSGENDERED" AGENDA FOR RESTROOMS!!!!!

1. Enter.
2. Pee and/or poop.
3. Wash hands.
4. Leave."

And when I mentioned that I've used multi-stall, gender-neutral bathrooms quite a few times, and came out just fine, someone asked, "They didn't turn you gay? (Or straight, whichever you weren't when you went in.)"

:)

Seems to me I heard something about all-gender bathrooms at a recent atheist conference or other event, and gee-whiz-golly-gosh ... NO INCIDENTS!

As Bill the Bard might put it, is all the fuss about gender Much Ado About Nothing ... at least among those who bother to think?

That's a great story, Grinning Cat.  I think a lot of similar proposals are popping up across the country and will be a major step forward for our society. 

I watched the news clip video you provided and I have to say, I'm rather surprised the story was presented in an entirely positive manner without the obligatory fanatical response from the religious nut cases.  I guess that's the "liberal media" for you.  In Des Moines?  LOL
