I confess that I haven't read every article related to the use of restrooms by transgender people, but I need to make a few comments. If someone is a transgender female, I presume that this person will be dressed as a woman. If so, it is obvious to me that this person could not enter the men's room to go to the bathroom. In the ladies' room there are booths, and I would never have any idea of what goes on there. How could someone even know if it is being used by a male dressed as a female?

With a weekend deadline looming, a conservative group - shadowed by an equal rights organization - is making a final push in an uphill effort to collect enough signatures to force a ballot referendum on a transgender rights law scheduled to take effect this fall. "The bottom line right now is we're going full speed ahead," said Washington County Del. Neil Parrott, a Republican who chairs MDPetitions.com. As of Friday, the group was thousands of signatures short of its goal. It faced a deadline of midnight Saturday to collect about 18,500 signatures to keep its effort going.

They have blossomed over the last decade, growing from tiny utilitarian areas into spacious, handsomely appointed rooms, often with whirlpool baths, steam showers and other fixtures designed to pamper and soothe harried residents.Bidets; oversized showers with seats and multiple shower heads; exercise areas; entertainment centers, and expensive materials like marble and granite are becoming more and more visible as Americans upgrade old bathrooms and add new ones.

Willy Russell's Stags and Hens is set in a bathroom, and despite some talented performances by the young actors from Britain's SongTime Theatre, the production at the Theatre Project never ascends above the level of the loo. To be precise, the play takes place in two lavatories - the men's and ladies' rooms of the Liverpool club that, unintentionally, turns out to be the site of the bachelor and bachelorette parties of a couple on the eve of their marriage....

These last few years will go down as a time when Marylanders took steps to recognize the humanity of those who have too often been marginalized. In 2011, the General Assembly voted to stop penalizing children whose parents brought them to the United States illegally when it came time for them to go to college, an important gesture in the nation's polarized immigration debate. In 2012, lawmakers extended equal rights to same-sex couples who wanted to marry. And in 2014, legislators reached out to perhaps the most marginalized group of all, those who do not identify with the sex they were assigned at birth, by passing the Fairness for All Marylanders Act, which Gov. Martin O'Malley plans to sign this month.

A conservative group will try to collect enough signatures to force a referendum on a law approved by the General Assembly this year protecting the rights of transgender individuals. MDPetitions.com, founded and led by Republican Del. Neil Parrott of Washington County, announced Tuesday that it is launching an effort to put the law on the November ballot. If the group collects enough signatures, voters would decide whether to uphold or overrule the law. The legislation passed both the Senate and House of Delegates by wide margins over the opposition of most Republicans and some socially conservative Democrats, and Gov. Martin O'Malley has said he will sign it. It is scheduled to take effect Oct. 1, but if it goes to referendum, the law would be delayed pending the outcome.

Purging the drawers, cubbies, shelves, under-sink storage, and medicine chest in the bathroom is a dreadful job, one that must be done at regular intervals. That's every 17 years, in my opinion. I prefer to do it myself, rather than to let Doug try. He can't tell the difference between the leg-shavers that slice my shins to shreds and the ones that don't, which can lead to surprises in the shower that resemble the murder scene from "Psycho. " Our bathroom contains the usual complement of shampoos, conditioners, body wash, toothpaste, mouthwash, various unguents, salves and gels; and a collection of tweezers, cuticle scissors, hair dryers, toenail clippers, nose- and ear-hair trimmers, and make-up applicators — and that's just the stuff on the countertop.

Spending two hours in a mobbed MVA "Express" office in Columbia is bad enough, and for an 80-year-old woman who needs a bathroom, there's no place to go but the deli next door. Brierley Carroll, who lives in the Charlestown retirement complex in Catonsville, said she couldn't take the wait, so she took a manager's suggestion that she go next door to Columbia's Best Deli. She finds the lack of bathroom facilities for such large crowds "ridiculous, absurd. " Carroll said the MVA needs to provide a bathroom even if it's a porta-potty on the parking lot. "It needs to be done.

The Nottingham woman had ducked into a bathroom at the White Marsh Sears when she heard a voice from the adjoining stall: Her neighbor had found the toilet-paper dispenser empty. Could she pass some under the divider? As she gathered a bunch, authorities said, someone reached over the stall's door and took cash and credit cards from the purse she had hung there. It wasn't until she stopped at other stores that she realized her cards were missing. She would later find that the thieves had bought thousands of dollars' worth of merchandise with the cards.
