Orchids in Hawaii.
We all know there has been a firestorm of controversy regarding the so-called “bathroom law,” which prohibits males, who identify as a female, from using the women’s restroom. This also affects women, who are transgender.
We don’t have such a law here in Hawaii, but David and I have been discussing this issue. He was at a department store recently and had to use the restroom immediately. He noticed one that had a sign, titled “Family Restroom,” which permitted anyone to use the restroom. There was a table in the room to change a baby’s diaper, too. David was impressed. Why can’t all stores have such a bathroom?
Consider, for example, a mother who has a young son and daughter. Does she enter the men’s room or the women’s room? A family restroom would be ideal for such a mother and her young son and daughter.
Why can’t people use their common sense? Look in the mirror. If you look like a male, then use the men’s room. If you look like a female, then use a woman’s room. Why make an issue out of it?
On the other hand… When I was at a craft fair at a public school a few years ago, I needed to use the bathroom. The girl’s room was occupied, so I scooted into the boy’s room next to it, and used it. I was just a little old lady, dressed like a woman, who needed to use the toilet in the boy’s room right away. So, what? Arrest me for breaking the law?
Of course, if that restroom had multiple toilets that were occupied by males, then I probably would have looked for a bush or tree to relieve myself…
