East Nashville Councilman Brett Withers has introduced a bill which would authorize unisex
I support this legislation. I know lines have been drawn and some people are going to have a knee-jerk reaction and oppose this in light of the controversy over legislation aimed at requiring a person with a penis to use the male restroom and the push back against those proposals, but this has nothing to do with that controversy. I would oppose a bill that mandated all restrooms be unisex or a bill that said a person could choose the bathroom of his or her choice based on their gender identity, but this does not do that and I can support this bill which allows a business owner to make his restrooms unisex when they consist of only one toilet and the door lock from the inside.
It make absolutely no sense to have a line of men waiting to get in the men's restroom when there is an empty women's restroom and both restrooms are single person restrooms that lock from the inside.
