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

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.

I’m passionate about creating a safe space for everyone in the transgender community to find laughter and friendship on their journey. I completed my physical transition in 2011 and through it I lost everything, and gained everything. I am blessed that I was forced to gaze inward and embark on the journey to discover and live my authentic self. My deepest wish is that all who wander here may find peace, happiness and freedom.

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.

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.

Venessa 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… Read more »

I’ve been feeling using the ladies room when the time arrives, since I started going out as a lady a week ago. I go in with confidence, and dont make much eye contact. I’ve heard a news story about states considering males in the ladies room to be a felony, but I can’t see that happening. Bottom line is if you’re going in as a lady, behave, and behave as a lady. I get my business done, and then skedaddle.
