That does make the question of gender moot, but that then creates a different situation, where everyone is siloed off into their own space. For some people, that might be a real boon, while for others, they would lose the joy of sharing that communal space and building those pre- and post-show rituals and relationships that enrich their work experience. It's not the case here that Reid wanted *their own* dressing room, they just wanted a communal space where they felt respected as a non-binary actor, and they weren't finding that when they were forced to share a dressing room with male-binary-identifying actors. We can find ways to work with gender expression that are not based on enforcing gender binaries or making gender completely moot. Like with race, let's acknowledge and embrace gender in all of its intricacies.
