There is Only One Toilet

Only one transgender toilet

I was going about my business the other day, as one would on any regular day. I was finishing up some errands before heading home to get ready for an evening out with friends. It must have been one too many Peppermint Teas – which I’ll admit are now my all time favorite and are doing their best to keep my newly kicked coffee addiction at bay – when I just had to go. I rushed into the ladies room to ensure that the tea took it’s rightful place in the circle of life. Cue Elton John, juxtapose African wildlife with a sewage treatment plant, music crescendos.

Then it hit me.

There is only one toilet

Transgender Heaven - Gender Journey

I’ll never again enter a men’s bathroom.

Not that I consider this much of a loss. Stepping over puddles of urine and trying to avoid all manner of foul odors and hygiene faux pas was never high on my exciting weekend activities.

But it hit me hard. If they introduced a new technology in male urine capture, I would be obvious to it. I’d never get to use the spray-guard 2000 urinal with build in mini-game and real time facebook score tracking. This was it.

Forever I’d have to make do with the pleasantly scented and relaxing confines of the ladies. With it’s walls adorned with artwork, vases overflowing with flowers and floors suspiciously clean and urine free.

With Great Toilet Power Comes Great Responsibility

As I brushed my hair and checked my makeup in the restroom this morning I pondered my earlier advice to crossdressers about using the ladies bathroom. Find a private restroom if possible, get in and out quickly, smile and be confident. When there is only one toilet this advice no longer holds true. It’s not practical to confine myself to single-use restrooms, or to leave my makeup in a state because I couldn’t touch it up for fear of lingering.

This is real life now – there is only one toilet. I’ll wield it’s power wisely.

    Thanks for the article Vanessa, first i’ve seen on this topic. Believe ME when i say
    It should be addressed. thank goodness there are stalls in mens room also and in most cases ,one for the handicaped. I am a handicaped srossdresser(had stroke two years ago
    and never fully recovered. Must squat to pee as us old timers use to say.(no water pressure). I live alone and Dress as the Woman i’ve become 24/7 when at home. Don’t have the confidence to go out fully dressed yet, except to mail box. When i do go out (cant drive)
    i have to depend on someone else. I do completely underdress and have on ocassion been in the awkward situation of not being able to find a handicap stall , so far i have had my grown son, whom i’ve come out to, with me and he helped me up when finished.
    My desire and need to be dressed as the Woman that i am over rides my fear of being caught, i just don’t want anyone to be offended or physically hurt by MY Desire.
    I wish that other handicaped crossdressers out there would speak out. i know i’m not alone . Thanks to Crossdresser Heaven and all Of You Alls Support i am getting more confidant, every day to come out completely , as my neighbor said, to my pleasant suprise when I recently revealed my true Woman Self to her. It’s ok dear, we only live once and life is to short. BE YOURSELF.

    I was out dressed en.femme at a shopping plaza one day and I had to use a bathroom.
    Not wanting to go into the men’s room dressed as a woman I oped to find a ladies room.
    I located the food court and saw the sign for the ladies room.
    With as much confidence that I could gather I went down the hallway to a place where I’d never been.
    I was surprised to find that there wasn’t a door.
    Only a open door that led into the inside of the ladies room.
    Again I was surprised to see how many stalls there were.
    Two rows of stalls and lots of women and girls using them.
    I was walking down the first row of stalls looking for a empty one.
    I was almost at the end of the first row when a door on a stall opened and a young lady came out leaving the stall door open.
    I went into it and closed and locked the stall door.
    I put a toilet seat cover on the seat before I sat down for sanitary reasons.
    After using the toilet I flushed and left the stall walking towards the exit.
    I stopped at a sink and touched up my makeup and brushed my hair then left without any incident.
    Since then I’ve been using the ladies room wherever I am when I need to use it.
    I remembered what you said about using the ladies room and not lingering in it afterwards.
    Works every time and I’ve never had a problem.

    Ever since I have been out en femme I have always confidently used the ladies rest room. No way was I going to enter the men’s room in a dress or skirt and top, etc. Confidence is the key. People will generally see what they expect to see and as long as you do your business the way a lady would, no one will notice. Oh yes. SMILE.
    Everyone will notice the smile and not look closer at you.

    Works for me, anyway.

    Thanks for sharing this well written story! Personally, my level of being a CD never reached the status of the “Ladies” being my only rest room of choice. My wife did have me enter a Ladies restroom once while fully dressed, and I was virtually scared to death! If it wasn’t for her presence while there, I would have freaked out and no doubt cause a scene. As it was, we did our business,repaired our makeup and performed a confident retreat. It must be sooo good to have such confidence in the light of day and in the rest room.
