Shared from WordPress – Do read it’s quite an eye opener on people’s behaviour:-
On Restrooms, Gender, and Fear – http://wp.me/p14ihb-1wL
As my daughter / son is trans / gender queer / gender neutral I can empathise.
As a parent I feel I have gained another child, not lost one.
I would hate for my beloved child to feel so scared that they couldn’t use the public loo.
Does it help if I say that we joke about the sign on the door being a cloaked superhero rather than a woman in a dress
And this is how positive I and my husband, our child’s father feel about our beloved child.
The two of them have written a play about communication between father and child and are performing it at the Brighton Fringe Festival this month (May)
