    Before I even read this yesterday I was thinking of one or two of your public bathroom stories you had shared with me before.

    My disability is usually not detected by others. My biceps and deltoids do not function. I use the handicapped stalls because I need the grab rails in order to pull up my pants after I am done using the toilet. I hook my thumb into my waistband, grab the rail with my fingers and do a knee bend. If I am in a regular stall, there is usually nothing to grab onto and it will take me several minutes to try and inch my pants up, and usually I still need help getting the waistband to lie flat.

    However, if there were someone in a wheelchair in the line behind me, I would use a regular stall.

    Most of the women I have known IRL who have disabilities, transfer to the toilet.

    You must not know many female quads IRL.

    NW-Will - Regardless of weather one transfers to the toilet or not, it makes sense to have a toilet there and not just "someplace to empty into and flush." It would be wasting space to have a separate handicapped stall without a regular toilet.

    I say jiggle away.
    Betheny: I can't stand without bars. I am seeing a new trend of standard size stalls with grab bars. When they exist, I use those. I am SOL without the bars.
    What about folks with walkers? They can't fit into a standard stall either.
    Every day I wake up is a good one

    I think both examples would be obvious and acceptible in my opinion.
