Many people have shared thoughts about the future of bathrooms. It’s not surprising, because the “specter” of people using a bathroom that doesn’t match their birth gender is frequently used as a scare tactic by opponents of LGBT equality. In fact, Natalie says not being afraid to use a public restroom would be a godsend.

DaniSteely envisions a future with restrooms for people of all possible gender identities. Jonny’s looking forward to a future with gender neutral bathrooms, especially on educational campuses. Heron says that more cities should follow the DC example and make single-stall restrooms gender neutral.

But how would people know where to find those bathrooms? Well, Tessa says she can’t believe there isn’t an app to find a gender neutral bathroom.

What are your thoughts about the future for the LGBT community (not necessarily related to restrooms)?
