We don't want to offend anyone that needs to shit and piss Pizzeria makes their bathrooms unisex because 'gender specific toilets' can cause offense to LGBT community A North Carolina pizzeria has been praised for making their bathrooms unisex in order to avoid what they say are potentially uncomfortable situations between patrons. A photo of the sign placed on the unisex bathroom at Pure Pizza in Charlotte recently went viral, as more and more people agreed with what it was advocating. The sign says: 'We have a unisex bathroom because sometimes gender specific toilets put others into uncomfortable situations. And since we have a lot of our friends coming to see us, we wanted to provide a place for our friends who are: Single Dads with daughters, Single Moms with sons, Parents with disabled children, those in the LGBTQ community, (and) adults with aging parents who may be mentally/physically disabled.' http://i.***************/i/pix/2016/01/15/02/302E43C100000578-3400473-image-m-14_1452825422663.jpg +3 A sign for the times: This was posted on the bathroom at Pure Pizza in Charlotte after the owners decided unisex was a better option for patrons and employees - and it has since gone viral http://i.***************/i/pix/2016/01/15/02/302E43B500000578-0-image-a-12_1452824709455.jpg +3 Progress: Juli Ghazi (left), the owner of Pure Pizza, said she was inspired for the unisex bathroom by her employees, some of which are single parents The restaurant's owner, Juli Ghazi, said she was inspired to make the sign and bathroom situation because of one of her employees. 'I had one employee who is a single dad of a five-year-old, another who is a single mom with two boys and a good friend of mine has a dad with dementia,' she told ABC News. 'All of these stories started coming to light about individuals who have a need for a gender neutral bathroom so it really opened up my eyes.' However Ghazi did not anticipate the support she would soon receive for the gesture. http://i.***************/i/pix/2016/01/15/02/302E43BC00000578-0-image-a-13_1452824712958.jpg +3 Owner Juli Ghazi (center) was shocked by the attention her restaurant received after the sign was posted - but said it is all for a positive outcome She does, however, understand it. 'With this sign it touches on ageism, it touches on homophobia, it touches on individuals with disabilities and communities of individuals that tend to experience more discrimination and that's why it resonated on so many levels,' she said. 'People have been reaching out from around the world and saying, 'You heard us, you heard our voice. Now we're able to be a part.''
