Soon transgender toilets in Berlin?
(Blogmensgo, March 12, 2013) In Berlin, the Municipal Council of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg district has adopted a project to build toilets for the third sex. The project, much-maligned, is still subject to appeal.
These are from the elected Pirate Party (left libertarian) who suggested the creation of transgender toilets. Their reasoning is that if people do not identify as men or as women, they need a specific toilet. The Pirate Party's proposal was passed by the elected left or closer to the left (SPD, Left Party , Greens). Right (CDU) voted against.
The project will be an experiment until 1 st June 2013. In the meantime, the busy public places (town hall, community center) will equip the "unisex" with a specific label, instead of the current gendered toilets and their gender identification.
While some political reactions are rather amused at the image of the borough mayor Heinz Buschkowsky (depending on for whom the project is not a priority, but why not?), Others cry foul, especially among the elected right .
