There has been a whole lot on TV, radio and in the newspapers recently about the struggles of transgender folks to gain their desired bathroom rights. It’s time to offer a port-o-john solution.
Port-o-johns are large portable standalone single-occupant toilets. Most port-o-johns just offer the basics, a single-seat and maybe a sink with running water and a sanitary soap container. If you’re really lucky you get a small plastic mirror which may provide a distorted image like you’d find at an amusement park fun house.
Mandatory port-o-john use for all would eliminate any debate as to who should use which. One size fits all and they come with a locking door.
There use will also serve to provide penance for all of us that unthinkingly routinely used either designated male or female restrooms all these years without regard to the desires of others.
Never miss a local story.
