Thanks for reading through to the end…

We share your inclination to get the whole story. For the past 25 years, Xpress has been committed to in-depth, balanced reporting about the greater Asheville area. We want everyone to have access to our stories. That’s a big part of why we've never charged for the paper or put up a paywall.

We’re pretty sure that you know journalism faces big challenges these days. Advertising no longer pays the whole cost. Media outlets around the country are asking their readers to chip in. Xpress needs help, too. We hope you’ll consider signing up to be a member of Xpress. For as little as $5 a month — the cost of a craft beer or kombucha — you can help keep local journalism strong. It only takes a moment.

Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community. Xpress is committed to offering this platform for all voices, but when the tone of the discussion gets nasty or strays off topic, we believe many people choose not to participate. Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service. Thank you for being part of this effort to promote respectful discussion.

    99.99999 percent of the population do not want co-ed public restrooms. This isn’t a conservative v/s liberal thing, it’s a sane v/s insane thing.

      Nope, wrong. Making up statistics makes you seem more ignorant (and insane) than your closed minded and hateful views.

    • Worried

      Did you get your facts from Fox News, or make this statistic up yourself? Must have done a lot of research to come up with such a big number.

    Guess what? Half the smaller restaurants in Asheville have unisex bathrooms. Is that a problem for you? And if you are talking about which bathrooms should be used by trans people, do you REALLY want a transitioned F to M trans person in your daughter’s bathroom with her? Or Caitlin Jenner in your locker room?

    • Lisa Watters

      I am a woman and I would have no problem with Caitlin Jenner in my locker room. I suspect most women wouldn’t – although I don’t have the well-researched statistical numbers that James has above.

        Not to worry. “42.71 percent of all statistics are made up on the spot.” — Steven Wright.

            Yeah, well, that’s less than 99.99999 percent, isn’t it? Last time I checked, this is still a democracy.

    LOL, look it this way. Men get to wizz all over the toilet seats and not care what women think lulz.
