As a student who advocates for the basic human rights of all people, it is relevant that I explain the importance of gender neutral restrooms to my fellow peers here at KSU. Restrooms are a place we go to as human beings to take care of our natural bodily functions, so why is gender a factor? Because males and females have different sex organs?
I think it is fair to say that restrooms without a designated gender benefit any individuals who are not comfortable or who face mistreatment when accessing specific restrooms. These individuals can be transgender or gender nonconforming people, people with disabilities or personal attendants, and people with children. We even see the benefits of gender neutral restrooms for everyone when there is a waiting line for one restroom whereas there is no one in the other genders’ restroom.
