I never know which restroom to use. I try to avoid it whenever I can, but sometimes I'm not sure which I'm supposed to pick. I don't have tons of confidence when I use the women's restroom. However, I'm not comfortable using the men's restroom either. I know a lot of genderqueer people like me have the most anxiety about bathrooms, so which should we pick? For me, one of the issues is semi-public restrooms. These restrooms would be places like a club that you're a member at. You know some people there, but there are a lot of people there that you don't know. If I've introduced myself known as one gender to everyone I know there and start using the restroom of the opposite gender, I might run into a friend which becomes a tough scary situation, or get glared at by a stranger for being in the wrong restroom. Most situations I've been in have been humiliating. I don't really know what I'm supposed to do when I get "caught." I don't know if I should just tell everyone I meet or already know that I'm not sure about my gender. Plenty of people tell me to just go by what's under my pants, but when I do, I don't pass. When I go by how I feel that particular day, I don't always pass for that either. I don't pass for either side, because I look androgynous, with a mix of traits from both sides. What's the best option for me, or ways for me to feel better/more confident in the restroom?
