Go in peace?

Not in the Paris of the Pacific Northwest, you won't;
The Seattle City Council on Monday adopted legislation requiring all City-controlled and privately occupied public accommodations to designate existing and future single-stall bathrooms as all-gender facilities.

The legislation applies to such businesses as restaurants, coffee shops, hotels and stores.  It mandates that all single-occupancy City bathrooms,  and those at public accommodations, must have signage that is not gender exclusive but allows use by any gender identity.
That's from a column by the Seattle PI's Joel Connelly, who further reports;
The Seattle legislation was recommended by the Mayor’s LGBT Task Force.  The City had been urged to get off the pot and signal full acceptance of its transgender community. The new rules will be enforced by the Seattle Office of Civil Rights, a zealous advocate of non-discrimination in policy and political correctness in language.
