All current and future single-stall bathrooms in Seattle must now be gender-neutral, according to new legislation adopted by the city council on Monday. That includes bathrooms in both city-operated buildings and privately owned businesses, such as hotels, restaurants, and coffee shops.

This doesn’t mean that all bathrooms in Seattle will be gender-neutral; the new law only applies to single-occupancy restrooms, so you can still chase the tiny thrill of peeing in the men’s room just to feel alive.
