What with all this fuss about trans women using female loos, there is one slightly less worthy thought that does cross my mind from time to time. And it is this.
Many of the blokes who get so up in arms about trans women in the female loos in some way insinuate that we go in there and “stand to pee”.
Really? Obviously, that’s a pretty daft suggestion if you’re post op. But do any trans women stand, to pee, pre-op?
I don’t. Not once since the day i started to transish.
Partly out of respect (cause i get, now, just what a pain it is to share loos with that half of the species that splatters all over the place). Part getting the habit. Part…i dunno.
All sorts of stuff. Like learning how to pee when you’re trying to fight your way through magic pants, a full skirt and an underskirt. And psychology.
Anyway, i did sort of imagine that trans women all sit (anyone prepared to confess they don’t).
I also had a sneaky wonder about what trans men do.
