New LGBT Legislation in Philadelphia

http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/local/LGBT-Gender-Neutral-Restrooms-206932591.html

I find this new legislation very interesting. Public restrooms is the focus of this article, though the legislation includes several other important changes. For a lot of people, public restrooms are a daily struggle, while those of us that enjoy cis privilege rarely think about the automatic choice of which bathroom to use. I’m interested to know if people think that the addition of a gender neutral bathroom is wholly good or if it will ultimately ostracize and make people expect non-normatively gendered people to not “bother” or surprise them in the gendered restrooms.
