Girl Scout Unisex Bathroom Sign Contest

Hello! This is Girl Scout Troop 57782. We have noticed that people who are non-binary, transgender, or any gender in between, sometimes feel uncomfortable going to the bathroom. Their body tells them to go in one bathroom, but their mind says to go into the other bathroom (or no bathroom at all). We would like to see more unisex bathrooms in schools, businesses, offices, restaurants, movie theaters, and any other public space where someone might feel uncomfortable using a man/woman bathroom.

We’re sure you have some questions. Why should we have unisex bathrooms? Who does it benefit? Why does it help me? Well, unisex bathrooms provide: Safety for trans and non-binary people by limiting harassment based on what they look like It allows any parent with a child to help the child go to the bathroom If someone has to go really bad and they don’t feel comfortable using the men’s/women’s bathroom, they don't have to hold it (which is really bad for your health) Having equal access boosts mental health

We are having a contest. Any business owner or school principal/teacher or anyone who works in a public space, we would like you to email us if you have a unisex bathroom in your workplace!* The first 100 people who email us get a certificate of appreciation. But that’s not all! We’re going to draw 10 entries to win a brand new unisex bathroom sign! Thank you if you get back to us and good luck winning that sign! Please email us before June 18 to enter the contest: <troop57782@gmail.com>.

So, do you think it would make a difference if women emailed the troop to explain why they are giving up their rights by this nonsense?

Grooming girls to be complicit in their own oppression. Classy, Girl Scouts.

This completely goes against the Girl Scouts safety rules that specify hard separations of men and women and girls bathrooms at scout events....

This is only kinda relevant but one time in Girl Scouts when I was probably like 10, we went to a dude ranch. I don't know how many different troops were there but it seemed like a lot. Our cabin only had a men's bathroom near it so it had been converted into a women's (with a sign taped on the door lol) because everyone there was female anyway. We thought it was really funny that there was a urinal in the bathroom but obviously no one used it. Anyway I'm just so glad we didn't do anything like this crap -- I would have quit though for sure lol

Jesus Christ this is grim. Full time grooming is org at this point.

What about all the little girls forced into a vulnerable space with a hulking dude in a dress with his dick out? No safety for them, I guess.

And exactly who are the folks "harassing" trans people? Do you mean MEN? If MEN are assaulting transwomen in their bathrooms, time to take it up with MEN!!!!

Please correct me if I’m wrong, but It sounds to me like they’re campaigning for separate third spaces? That’s good for us, it’s better than TIMs in female spaces

it sounds that way, but is not explicit. I was recently in a new bldg that had 4 separate spaces: Unisex, men's, women's, and family bathrooms. The family bathroom indicated it had a changing table. Seems sensible to me. Except for the supposed women who think they are actual women and just use the women's room, when they have options to not do so.

We should have unisex bathrooms! However I and many others would be deeply uncomfortable using one, so we must also keep the men's bathroom and the women's bathroom.
