  1. The website looks great and very informative!! If I wasn’t already excited about the gender neutral bathroom week and want to be involved. I would be after looking into the website. I like the emphasis on making this an educational experience. I also like the town-hall style debriefing being offered. Hopefully this will allow for everyone to feel that their voice is being heard and their experience matters. I can’t wait to see the films.

  2. Thank you so much for doing this! It is a wonderful thing for many reasons, but I’ll just talk about one of them. Gender segregated bathrooms suggest that all men are potential attackers of women and foster distrust and fear. Women are actually more likely to be attacked in sex segregated bathrooms. Most men are not rapist, but when bathrooms are segregated the worst men are given a chance to catch vulnerable women alone in the bathroom with their pants down. It’s far better to share facilities so we can all take responsibility fro everyone’s safety.
