In recent years, people have become more aware of transgender people. In June 2020, British author JK Rowling’s controversial remarks against transgender people aroused people’s attention. Some people think that transgender people’s use of women’s bathrooms violates women’s rights. But is this really the case?
Being transgender is not a personal choice or interest. It is their identity and existence. They need to be respected and recognised. For transgender people, their gender perception determines their mental health. In the current situation, it may be a good choice to create a dedicated “genderless” independent space in the toilet.
