A Philadelphia city councilman has sponsored a bill that would require newly constructed or renovated city-owned buildings to have gender-neutral bathrooms in addition to men’s and women’s restrooms, as the Philadelphia Daily News notes.
This is why I think it’s completely reasonable and achievable to enact gender-neutral bathroom ordinances in the entire country:
The act wouldn’t cost Philadelphia additional money because the city already requires single-use wheelchair-accessible bathrooms in all of its buildings, according to Rue Landau, executive director of Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations.
If buildings are already required to provide wheelchair-accessible restrooms, why not require these to be gender-neutral? In fact, I think it would be a relief for more than just trans* people.
