The BBC has released its new bathroom designer guide, which outlines what bathroom design features are required to provide the best bathroom experience for people of all ages.
The guide is available to download now and is designed to help everyone feel comfortable using their bathroom.
It has been designed to highlight common bathroom issues people may encounter, including a lack of toilets, inadequate sinks, poor water, and a lack in toilets for people who have been denied access to the bathroom because they are transgender.
The document is designed for parents and carers to understand what the best choice of bathroom for a transgender person is, what their options are and how to work together to make it happen.
The new guide, produced by Bath and Body Works, has been created by Bath & Body Works’ design team to help people who may have difficulty using the bathroom of their choice.
It comes after Bath and Bone had published a guide for parents in February 2017, which recommended that parents use the toilets of their preferred gender.
However, the guide was criticised by some for including outdated or misleading information and also included recommendations that children’s toilets should be “inclusive”.
The guide includes recommendations that:Bath & Bone also released a guide in May 2018, which advised parents to choose “a safe, non-inclusive bathroom”.
The updated guide for the transgender community also includes advice for transgender people, including information about transitioning, gender reassignment surgery, hormone therapy, and gender reassignments for people transitioning from female to male.
The latest guide comes a month after a transgender woman, whose identity is being kept secret, told the ABC her family “didn’t want to deal with” a toilet that she believes to be a “horrible” “horror” in her bathroom.
Bath and Bone said it was important to include all the information people need to make informed decisions.
“It is important that we get everyone who might be struggling with this issue, including people who are in their own lives who are struggling with it,” said Bath and Bones’ head of marketing and communications, Anna Bevan.
“So the best way to do that is to create an inclusive environment for them and make sure they can access the toilet as they see fit.”‘
No one has the right to piss in it’: transgender woman in her own wordsIn her own account of her experience using the toilet in her parents’ home, Ms Bevan said she was not allowed to use the toilet because she was transgender.
“I was never allowed to pee, it was just the idea of it, and I felt that if I had the option of going to the toilet, then I should go,” she said.
“And I just wasn’t allowed to.”
“I think for many people, it is just like you don’t have the right, you can’t pee, and it’s just disgusting.”
She said the toilet experience made her feel like she was “finally going to be able to pee” and was “completely humiliated”.
Ms Bevan has been using the male bathroom at the family home since February 2017 and said the bathroom was “a disaster” for her.
“You just feel like you’re being treated like an object,” she told the broadcaster.
“There’s no way I’m going to go in there now.”
“It was so awful, you feel like this is not acceptable, you don, you know, you just feel completely humiliated.”
Even in my own house, you see me in my bedroom, and even my room, the toilet is a disaster.
It’s a terrible toilet, I’m so embarrassed.
“Ms Bevin told the TV show Lateline she felt “violated” by her own bathroom experience.”
The toilets are not in the bathroom.
You don’t really see it, you do not see the toilet,” she explained.”
But for me it felt like this was a horrible place to be, and now I’ve been in my family’s home for four years and it feels like this isn’t normal.”‘
I can’t believe I’m having to use this bathroom’: mother on bathroom struggleBath, Bone, and the Bath and Bodies team were able to use their experience to create the new guide because they all had the same problem: “No one is having the right,” Ms Bevin said.
But, she said, she did not feel comfortable sharing her story in the media.”
Because we all share the same bathroom, I think it’s very important that the people who feel comfortable, the people that can identify with it, are able to share that bathroom, and we need to do it because the bathroom experience is a very important part of who we are as a family,” Ms Bexan said.
Baths and Bone have been contacted for comment.
