7 years ago, I wrote "Flushing the Potty Panic" for @transadvocate. I opined the solution to unlawful #discrimination in access to public accommodations in which nudity is unavoidable—toilets, showers, locker/dressing/changing rooms—because "separate but equal" is illegal…
is to ensure via #law that a sufficient number of secure, single user, #disability-accessible, #family-friendly facilities are provided for all people who for any reason desire or require #privacy or assistance, in the manner of the #ADA Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990…
at the same time we ensure by law that all people have the right to be free from unlawful discrimination on the basis of sex, gender, sexual or affectional orientation, or gender identity, appearance, expression, or behavior, regardless of sex or gender assigned at birth…
This would allow all trans people to access facilities appropriate to their gender identity, while also providing those who are uncomfortable with trans bodies to separate themselves consensually. Think of it as an economic redevelopment stimulus program, if that helps you…
but it should go without saying whatever type of privacy facilities we provide, mandated or no, we owe it to simple human #decency and #dignity that they be made secure to the maximum feasible extent. A curtain is not enough, by any reasonable standard. Sex-segregation norms…
have encouraged lazy design, while #neoliberalism has encouraged the proliferation of poorly-designed facilities which force patrons into positions of #insecurity and degradated dignity in the name of profits. The built #environment outlives us, literally and figuratively…
We owe it to ourselves, to each other, to those marginalised in our society, and to our posterity, to ensure that society, in spirit, in law, and in practice, supports #Equality, #Liberty, and #Justice for All.

All the living are created equal in dignity. #不敢為天下先 #道
Trans women are women. Trans women are female. Trans rights are human rights. Do unto others as you would have others do unto you. #慈
