So at my office, we have a two-stall women's restroom and a private gender-neutral bathroom downstairs and several other marked and unmarked bathrooms upstairs. Over the past few weeks, I've noticed a male coworker getting frustrated when I'm in the gender-neutral/private bathroom downstairs. Since my bathroom visits are longer and loud I feel much more comfortable in the private bathroom.

Today said male coworker waited outside the bathroom for me. He told me there was a "ladies' restroom right there." I simply replied that I have a medical issue and the private bathroom is easier for me. He then acted incredibly frustrated and walked past me.

My blood is boiling!

I agree, he has his own issues.  Maybe he is jealous?  Doubtful if he knew what us j-pouchers have been through.  If he does it again perhaps he would care for a blow by blow account of why you feel more comfortable in the private washroom. Perhaps you could ask him why it is important to him that the gender neutral washroom remain vacant?

I know for darn sure that I would choose the private facilities every single time if I had that luxury.  Keep your head held high and your rights at the forefront.
