So I decided to have a day off family fun. I took my wife and son to an amusement park for the day. After a few hours of video games, bumper cars and boats, a restroom break was needed.
My wife went in ahead of me, because I was still playing a game. As my wife walked out the restroom, I walked in. When I was finished and washing my hands, in walked a woman with a disgusted look on her face, staring at me. I watched as she stepped back to read the sign on the door, to make sure she had the right bathroom. Realizing she did she became scared of what I was, and never used the restroom. She walked away disgusted.
I must say I was offended. I just recently cut my hair short, yes I am muscular built, wear men’s clothes, and I have a natural goatie. With this new hair cut, unlike my long dreds I had, I look obviously more manly. This woman thought I was a man.
Due to this interaction I now use the mens restroom in public. Men do not care that I do. It also makes me more comfotable knowing i’m not scaring people when I use the restroom. Besides I am sure I am not the only, woman that uses the mens room, or vice versa.
