There's finally a song about the trans bathroom issue that perfectly explains how important it is to be able to use the bathroom that matches your gender, regardless of the sex you were assigned at birth. With music! And dancing! And funny animals!
It's technically a children's song. But it's adults, especially parents and legislators, who need to hear it the most (because kids are born with open minds).
Especially lines like: “Pee is pee, Poo is poo. Me is me, You is you.”
The song was written and sung by children's musician "Mr. Loops" aka Jon Lewis, who also directed the video. It's super catchy so you might end up singing "Pee is pee, Poop is poo" around the office but THAT'S OKAY. Because it's true.
The issue of whether transgender people should be forced to use the bathroom of the gender they were assigned at birth, instead of the gender they identify with, has been widely debated throughout the country in the past year.
Especially after North Carolina passed a controversial bill in March that requires people to use the bathroom which aligns with their birth gender, even though these kinds of restrictions have been found to pose a threat to the safety of transgender people.
As the song also wisely points out: porta potties have been gender-neutral all along, as well as private bathrooms, and no one's making a fuss about that.
Now go play this song for every child and adult you know who's confused about how bathrooms work. There are surprisingly a lot of them.
