“The executive order will make loud and clear that New York City is a city for us all: cisgender, transgender, non-binary.” – Carmelyn Malalis, commissioner of the city Commission on Human Rights
The biggest news in New York City this week is focused on a topic that we don’t typically discuss in polite company: the bathroom.
Namely, the discussion is about who can use what bathroom and where, and the latest push from the mayor’s office is opting towards a much more inclusive plan than many of us are probably used to.
Naturally, with such a move away from the familiar structure of culture de toilette, there has been some major pushback, but is it really warranted?
Where do you stand (or sit) on this issue?
“Access to bathrooms and other single-sex facilities is a fundamental human right that should not be restricted or denied to any individual. Every New Yorker should feel safe in our city.”
