All across the country, schools and states want to dictate where people can go to the bathroom. That doesn’t mean folks have to listen.
For the trans and gender non-conforming community, the right to use the bathroom of their choice is increasingly under attack. North Carolina requires people use the bathroom assigned on their birth certificates, and Texas is preparing a bill just like it. And while we can’t change those laws overnight, we can print out non-cheesy gender-inclusive bathroom signs and tape them to bathroom doors in our businesses and schools.
Call it guerrilla gender-inclusive bathroom art. Use them to make any bathroom gender-inclusive and identify ones with or without urinals. All you have to do is find your nearest color printer, print out these signs and tape them up. Bam. Problem sort-of-solved.
You can even use a pencil to punch out holes in the bottom of the signs so that they can be read in braille.
Some highly uncool, “law-abiding” teacher might try and tear them down, but here’s the miracle behind these signs. You can keep printing them.
Oh, the magic of a copy machine.
Fight transphobia with double-sided scotch tape.
