There is something here I'm not getting. To begin with, I am not sure I grasp the whole "normatively gendered" concept. Is that when "society" wants you to be a boy, but really you are a girl? Or is it that "society" wants to be either a boy or a girl, but you believe you are really neither? And whichever it is, why does that entitle you to your own toilet?
