    New York City Council's Housing Committee voted 8-0 on Monday to remove "men" and "women" designations from single occupant public bathrooms to accommodate transgender people and those who refuse to identify as either male or female.

    "Most New Yorkers take their non-fettered access to bathrooms for granted. Yet every single day, transgender and gender non-conforming individuals must grapple with the fact that their choices may lead to harassment or worse," said Councilman Daniel Dromm, (D-Queens), the measure's prime sponsor, according to the New York Post.

    "There's an added bonus: Anyone looking for an unoccupied bathroom will now have more options," he claims.

    The new policy is expected to be approved by the city Council and Mayor Bill de Blasio.

    Earlier this month, NYC launched the nation's first government-sponsored citywide bathroom ad campaign that encourages people to: "Use the restroom consistent with who you are. Look past pink and blue."
