Dear Coast Report,

I was just reading the article about gender neutral bathrooms on campus (Sept. 4, “I skip the water so I can skip the restroom”) and was disappointed to read that the article attributes zero gender neutral bathrooms in the library.

“It baffles me,” said the author, that there are not gender neutral bathrooms in the Library. It baffles me, says this dean, that the author was not aware of the two bathrooms converted to gender neutral usage over one year ago in the library.

I have asked that they be highlighted on the Orange Coast College school app, but it appears that it has not yet happened. Perhaps a bit more research would have resulted in a more complete information. And yet, I acknowledge that there is no obvious source of this information beyond the map of the campus provided by the college.

Would it be possible to print a short article highlighting the “new” gender neutral bathrooms in the Library to ensure others who would like to use them know that they are available.

May we all “pee in peace.”

—John Taylor, Dean of the Library
