Bathroom debate should be clean vs. dirty users

Target is making a stand on the debate around what type of bathrooms transgender people can use. In a statement posted on its company website April 19, the discounter, based in Minneapolis, said transgender employees and customers can use the restroom or fitting room facility that “corresponds with their gender identity.”

I just used a public restroom, and this is how I propose we solve the whole “who gets to use which bathroom” problem:

Dirty Bathroom Users vs. Clean Bathroom Users . That’s what the door labels will say.

The Dirty Bathroom Users pee on the floor or squat and pee on the seat. They don’t wash their hands, and they touch everything before leaving.

The Clean Bathroom Users always use the paper cover on the seat, (no matter how difficult it is to place correctly), they flush the toilet with their shoe, put the toilet seat down, wash their hands with soap and water and use a paper towel to touch the door handle as they leave.

Which door are you qualified to enter?
