Northern Arizona University, a notoriously liberal college, has now allowed groups to post “pee privilege” posters outside of the bathrooms, telling students to contemplate how their using the bathroom is a slight against transgender students.
“Do you have pee privilege?” one sign questions, informing restroom-goers that if they “never have to think about gender identity, ability, or access when peeing,” then “[they] do.
So basically, any students who use the bathroom and feel safe using their own gender’s bathroom, are being ridiculed by transgender students now, for not being attentive enough to transgender students’ needs.
In another sign found by campusreform.org “pee privilege,” noting that the “ability to use a restroom without fear or concern for your own safety constitutes” such a privilege, explaining that other factors like the “gender binary,” or the “ability to undoubtedly know which bathroom to pick,” contribute to “pee privilege.”
“Don’t stare,” the sign continues, suggesting that “this person is probably aware that they don’t fit into either restroom” so they don’t need anymore “eyes reminding them.”
The sign does, however, confirm that students should protect not their own safety, but the safety of any transgender individual they may encounter in a bathroom, explaining that “gender variant people are at high risk of verbal, sexual, and physical assault.”
“Keep yourself accountable to make sure they’re safe from others,” the sign concludes.
