Etsy Crafted Up Their Own Sign To Make Their Bathrooms Gender Neutral

New York, like many states in the U.S., mandates that public restrooms indicate whether they are designated for men or women. While it’s not illegal to use the restroom of your choice, it may still be a difficult decision. The Brooklyn-based company kept the mandatory gender symbols, but added an Etsy-orange plaque that outshines the gendered signs, and makes clear which room to use. The sign reads: “While the law requires gender binary signs on the doors, we believe that gender is not binary. Please use the restroom that feels most comfortable for you.” One of their software engineers, Sara Bee, tweeted the photo last week. Above the sign, there is also a sticker from the campaign “It Was Never A Dress” — it was a cape — which was geared toward transforming perceptions of women.

Most Parents Support the New Sex Ed Curriculum - With Good Reason  The uproar over Ontario's updated sexual education curriculum has now gone way over the top, with some parents pulling their kids out of school in protest.

I respect the right of these parents to make their views known and to pull their kids out of school when sexual health curriculum is discussed in class. I oppose the attempt to axe the whole curriculum so that my child and the children of most Ontario parents, who support the curriculum, can't benefit from it either. The misinformation about the new curriculum rivals the inaccuracies kids get about sex from their friends and our culture.

Why is he in a women's restroom? Michael is protesting a series of bills across the U.S. and Canada that, if passed, would ban men like him from using men's restrooms and leave him no choice but to use the women's room. Bizarrely, these laws have been proposed as a way to protect the privacy and safety of women.
