Wednesday afternoon, I drove back to Atlanta. While driving thru Daniel Boone National Forest, I needed to stop and buy gas.
So I ended up stopping at this small gas station. I was a little nervous because of past history but I needed the gas.
I had to go inside to pay first and notice a few other African American truckers, so I felt better. Of course the vast major were friendly and cool. But you do not know who is not and might say something so try to embarrass me in front of their friends. Its just something you keep in the back of your head due to past experience.
Well I had to go to the bathroom and saw two bathrooms. Both were gender neutral bathrooms.Wow, gender neutral bathrooms in the heart of Trump country. This gas station is located in Laurel County Kentucky. Look at the 2016 Presidential results in the county.
Trump won that county by almost 70 percentage points. Yet they switched the male/female bathrooms to gender neutral bathrooms.
There was a small slot machine room next to the bathrooms and both male and female patrons were in that room playing.
I liked the fact that I just had to choose either bathroom. If I were presenting as Susan, I would have no bathroom issue.
I am going to add that site to the refruge bathroom web site.
Never give up hope.
