As for me, Yes, because I think that cross-dressers and other gender non-conformists should be able to have some place where they can go to the bathroom without the risk of being beat up and/or harassed.

And Yes, this is genuinely a serious question.

Absolutely. I see no decent reason to ban such bathrooms.

There are a lot of places here with only one bathroom. Both sexes use the same toilet.

Because the discussion will be any different than the last 10?

I have gender neutral bathrooms in my house.
Did you mean public restrooms?

Default No

What next? Removing gender as a classification?

Yes, if the business chooses to have them --- they shouldn't be made mandatory.

How would they label them? Male, Female, Undecided?

Only if it's clearly marked so I don't wander in. What would be the mark for it though?

Yes, but NOT for the same reason. I prefer to 'protect' girls vs cross-dressers, etc.

Here in CA, I prefer it because I don't prefer 'cross-dressers, multi-gendered' in the K-12 'GIRLS' restroom, shower, and locker rooms - which is the current CA public school law. (thanks to our fine legislators )

In some CA medical facilities I've seen single restrooms that say something about handicap + attendant, with no sex distinction, because your attendant may well be opposite sex (spouse, parent, etc).

I don't see a big issue for small businesses with single-stall, locking, restrooms. (And, I hope CA doesn't MAKE IT INTO a big issue either! But just give it time and CA likely will!! )
