New York approves unisex bathrooms in nod to transgender people

The New York City Council on Tuesday approved a law requiring single-stall public bathrooms to be gender neutral in a show of support for transgender people, the bill’s main sponsor said.

The council voted 47-2 for the measure, which will take effect Jan. 1.

Many New York City restaurants already mark their single-stall bathrooms without gender designations or as apt for both sexes, but the new law is meant to make the practice standard and recognize transgender people, Councilman Daniel Dromm said.“This sends a message that New York City supports the transgender community and understands the issue,” Dromm said.

Six stalls, Amish built, extra-wide aisle, high ceilings, stone dust and mats in the stalls, high ventilation design with bars between stalls and opening loft-windows, hay storage around back to keep dust in the barn to a minimum, heated tack room, hot and cold water to wash stall and tack sink, efficient no-shadow lighting system, paddocks off the back of the stalls with dutch doors and overhang for rainy weather…

This is heaven right? <3

ITALY, Milan : A man takes a picture of the Pavillion of Israel in the Expo Milano 2015 in Milan on May 1, 2015 on the opening day of the Universal Exposition.

The fair focuses on food security, sustainable agricultural practices, nutrition and battling hunger - as well as dishing out the best fare of the world’s culinary cultures. Cooking shows, restaurants, and food stalls will be designed to attract and hold visitors in Italy’s financial capital. AFP PHOTO / OLIVIER MORIN                        

Using pictures to make my paper longer and I ain’t even sorry.

8-10 pages on stall design is…crazy. I can only talk about the dimensions of box stalls and their use for so many sentences before I sound like a bluthering idiot. So, at the end of each paragraph illustrating the different types of stalls or doors, I’m going to add a photo example. It’s a research paper…I need examples, right?!

I’m almost on my third page and I’m just now starting to describe tie stalls. But, at the same time, all I have left to write about really is door types, interior building materials, bedding, and feeding/watering options. Is that 5-7 pages worth of stuff? I guess we’ll see…

So tired of school. But only 50ish days left. I can do this.
