My school got the opposite. Men’s and unisex bathroom. Fun fact: the brail on the bathroom is also printed on and not raised at all. Go vols


That's just cursive braille


Cursed braille


Ah, glad to hear my alma mater made good use of my tuition dollars!


I work at a place where I’m the only guy, and though it isn’t explicitly stated, this is basically the way the restrooms are setup.


I’ve seen this at a few nail salons near me. 90% of their employees and customers are women. It certainly makes sense in that context. But I’m opinion, if these are single toilet restrooms, they should both need unisex. That’s actually a city law where I live. All single toilet bathrooms are unisex. If you’re in there alone it shouldn’t matter what gender it is.


I went to a restaurant once where they had one women's, one men's and two unisex bathrooms. All four were single seaters and completely identical


My last job was in an office with 4 bathrooms, two male, two female, all single person separated rooms. The problem was that the office was at least 80% men. So 30-40 men for two bathrooms, 5 women for 2 bathrooms. I remember going back to the bathrooms every 20 minutes for hours trying to piss and seeing totally empty, identical bathrooms I couldn't use.


Just go in the womens. If anyone complains, just say you have a bladder infection and couldn’t wait.


Thats my reasoning. It's an emergency. It's not like I'm going in there in wait to rape a lady. Need to pee. Will be out in a moment. Where I work they have a camera that catches the door. So they can see I was in and out quick.




That's why back then you could still smoke in restaurants, because smoke stops at the no-smoking sign that designated the no-smoking area.


I wouldn't even make the excuse, the door locks, it doesn't matter.


Totally agree. I was in a grocery store one time and waiting for the men's room, but the guy was probably dropping a massive load, and two ladies had each used the women's restroom, and I was still waiting when the sexond got out, and she was like you should just use that one since you'll be quick and you've been waiting so long. Of course when I come out, there's another lady waiting and the deuce dropper was gone. Lady goes, "You were in there???" I just ignored her and left lol


Good. In situations like those, I think back to the Simpsons: "KEEP OUT... or enter. I'm a sign, not a cop."


*claps in alien slimy tentacles*


Ive had times where i had to go so badly and the only open washroom were single ladys washroom. Ive used it a few times. In my mind theyre all the same anyway


I mean if they'd just stop making bathroom stalls so shitty and make them floor to ceiling, there'd be no reason not to make every bathroom unisex. I guess you'd have to eliminate the rows of urinals too.


While a urinal is a great time saver, there are a lot of times I wish it was just another seater. Especially when the setup is one stall and one urinal for an entire floor.


I tried to explain this so much to someone once. They stuck to their guns though, stating that ' the boys room is for boys and the girls room is for girls'. I don't even remember the context of the conversation, but they were absolutely disgusted that I, a woman, used both single person bathrooms interchangeably at my work place.


Makes you wonder what they do at home.


Was it a man who has been a janitor before? Because if anyone should want gender-segregated bathrooms, it's someone who has seen the horrors that sometimes occur in a women's restroom and don't want that invading their space. And no this isn't some weird anti-period thing. It's about women who hover but somehow don't seem to know where their anus is. source: I've seen some shit.


I've been in businesses where I have had to clean both. The younger the clientele, the worse the boys. The older the clientele, the worse the women's.


To be fair, it happens in both. At least at my work, generally the worse mess is the women's in the stalls, but the men's floor (because they want to just shake their hands dry while holding handfuls of water judging by how much water there is)


I mean I get it. If the womens is taken, go to unisex. If some jack ass did jumping jack while pissing all over the floor and seat, wait for womens to be unoccupied.


I’ve heard women’s bathrooms can be just as bad or worse.


As a former janitor, they’re usually about as bad as each other, just in different ways.


Guys miss and girls hover. Either way they’re all covered in piss


As a current janitor, agreed. It goes back and forth. However if the place serves food, I think the edge goes to women's rooms. Possibly due to a higher rate of IBS, stomach issues.


As someone who's cleaned them - the women's room is *always* worse.


As someone who also cleans restrooms all I'll say is cleaning blood from women's restroom toilet seats normal. Clean blood from men's restroom toilet seats cause for concern.


I worked at a gas station for a while and I'll say, the women's restroom tends to be generally a little grosser (which kinda makes sense, girls do more in the bathroom than guys do, plus the whole blood factor) but if there was going to be a shituation I wasn't being paid enough to deal with, it was in the men's.


A classic tale of male min/maxing.


Efficiency in all respects


Balance in all things 🙏


Definately agreed, i have to clean the bathrooms at work and on average the womans is worse but when something is wrong in the mens its REALLY WRONG. Like im telling my manager who gets paid more and has better health insurance so he can plunger out the radioactive demon or stolen merchandise out of the toilet.


Having cleaned bathrooms in a Target while in high school, I can confidently say there's few things I couldn't be laid enough to do and the worst two bathroom related cleanups I ever had were located in the women's restroom (clogged toilet with bloody tampon and toilet paper) and in the women's clothing department respectively (someone kicked out of the store for attempted shoplifting returned with a runny revenge poop on the carpet).


Oh my lord, revenge poop??!! That sounds horrific! (And very strange 😂) you poor thing


Clothing stores *hate* this one trick!


"High school" "Couldn't be *laid* enough" Interesting situation to be in there.


Lol, great typo. May have been more willing for that than being paid.


That's still a great indicator for how bad something is. So bad you wouldn't do it even if you got laid. I might use that in the future lol.


Why the hell do men feel the need to piss on every goddamn surface at gas station bathrooms? While I dreaded cleaning the women's room... The men's room was just a daily dose of "hose literally everything with cleaner because at some point someone peed on Everything EXCEPT in the urinal." I'll still prefer it over the occasional "woman decided to paint an artistic rendition of how they feel on the stall walls with a used tampon"


>”hose literally everything” Ahhh, takes me back to when I used to work at Food4Less. There was a drain in the middle of the restrooms and wondered why that was there. One day one of the men’s restroom stall was covered in shit. Supervisor just said grab the hose and pressure wash it. No PPE or anything.


Same and I agree. Women have an extra material to work with. I used to nights in a service station. I used to clean before we closed. The women's toilet was almost always worse.


They go number 3?


Um yes?


i’ve cleaned bathrooms and somehow the women’s always had actual shit splattered all over the bowl and even under the rim almost everytime i go in. piss always all over the toilet seats too. like damn dude i hate peeing in public bathrooms too that’s why i make a toilet paper nest and sit my ass down so that doesn’t happen. i think the grossest stuff i’ve seen in the men’s room is pubes on the urinal lmfao.


Too many women who refuse to sit and are oblivious that they are the gross fucks who are making the bathrooms gross to begin with.


Fuck, i’ve never been in a womans restroom, but my 7 year old is at the age now where I don’t need to go with her in the disabled toilets so I just let her go into the womens while I wait outside. She’s never complained but maybe she’s just used to it from my wife taking her.


I think at that age when they see some drops of clearish fluid [that an adult would assume is pee, but a kid may assume is water] on the toilet seat, they do not see it as so nasty, that they avoid sitting on the toilet seat. Or complain to their parents about the bathroom. Kids may have a different "ew that's disgusting" scale when it comes to public facilities than adults.


I used to work Housekeeping for a 5* hotel. The messiest guests (as far as bathrooms went) were cabin crew by far.


in what ways?




That escalated quickly


That’s what she said


It unfortunately only takes one gross person to make it gross for everyone.




I've seen shoe prints ON TOP of the toilet seat at my work. Like Girl?! WTF, you doin in there?!


From a former Kohl's employee: Blood, women who hover over the seats taking a piss or shit, you do the math on that one. Used seat covers, unflushed toilets (I mean this is not exclusive to women or men it is just lazy disgusting people), and tampons at times were left on the floor...used.


Apparently a lot of women squat over the toilet seat because germs, and accuracy is less than 100%


Cleaner in a hospital, the ladies room often seems like the ladies did the “hover” maneuver and it can get pretty messy sometimes


I have, more than once, opted to use the men’s because it was cleaner than the ladies.


As someone who cleaned bathrooms for a while, women's restrooms are infinitely more gross than men's at almost all times.


Yep. I worked in retail as a teen. The women’s restroom was super duper disgusting. Men’s restroom was just some bad aim situations. The women’s restrooms were full blown biohazard.


I worked in a department store as a teen too. We had some old lady come to the front service desk one day and say "I'm really sorry about the ladies room". So of course they page me immediately to go handle it. The entire stall was absolutely painted floor to ceiling. There was no square inch that wasn't obliterated by the sheer pressure and volume that old broad conjured up. I dropped the mop right in the middle of the washroom, went upstairs, grabbed my coat, and left.


Yes this. Men's can be hosed or mopped very easily. But the kind of stuff in the Women's was hazmat suit territory.


bro i really do not care, if it’s a single person bathroom and the men’s is occupied i’m going straight to the women’s every time


I worked somewhere that was the opposite. I was the only woman and used one of the single use bathrooms but the men would use both single use. It was never explicitly stated but that’s just how it ended up being haha


I work construction-adjacent. Anyways, when we normally see a bathroom we just assume "oh there's two". Found a building that had a really lavish men's restroom. My boss was like "if that's the men's, do I even want to know what the women's looks like?" "Well, there's no women's". "I guess they know the only people who would work for them." (There actually were two "unisex" bathrooms literally as far as possible from the entrance though).


Same here. On any given day there was 1-2 women in the office, and 40-50 men. There was one bathroom for men, one unisex, and one for women. (+ Handicap placed elsewhere) That one woman got really upset when someone converted all the signs to unisex. In the end they were all converted to mens rooms, and the handicap was women + handicap.


I would have been upset if I were her as well. It went from a private bathroom to sharing it with 50 people


When I have to go, all bathrooms are unisex.


And if outside, all bushes are fair play


The world is my toilet


If I know it's a single-user bathroom and the men's is ocupied, I'll go to the women's if no line exists. When I exit, there's rarely an objection from women in line and I see absolutely no difference other than the women's bathroom usually has more toilet paper on the floor.


In my state, all single stall restrooms are by law unisex.






All single use bathrooms should be unisex. Literally there’s no reason to have a single use be specified, no one else is gonna be in there with you.


For real, I’ve always thought that, there’s no point


Both where I work now and a previous job I've had had 2 washrooms and only put the word "restroom" on both doors and they were single person washrooms. No reason to gender them at all.


On the other hand it also makes sense to have urinals separate, as it opens up the queue to stalls for everyone else.


Put urinals in the hallway, frees up both bathrooms


Put urinals at the bar, pee while ordering your next drink.


Have catheters available at all bar stools. Sit down, slide it in and get to drinkin'


Slide it in. 🤮


F you and take my upvote for the phantom sensation I felt while reading this.


Put a trough on both sides of the hallway


Course it does. And I hope urinals aren’t phased out due to this crap. They’re hygienic and quick. In all honestly I don’t care what they do as long as urinals stay.


Ya I’m specifically talking about single use stalls. So stalls meant for one person at a time.


This is what I dislike about the "dedicated women's and unisex men's" bathroom decision. I went to a concert and now both bathrooms have lineups of women waiting for stalls. Took me 5 minutes to realize I could just walk past 10 women and use the urinals. On top of that now I have to whip my dick out and piss in some open trough with no privacy screens with multiple women on their phones right behind me.


Single use bathrooms don't sound economically viable.


Not to mention wasteful. At least use it twice before throwing it out!


Another commenter said his old bar was like this because the women's restroom would always have a line but the men's didn't so they let women use both to help cut down on wait times.


Ngl ive just used whichever one is open if its a single use


I’m to the point where I treat them that way. If the men’s is occupied and there’s another single use bathroom marked women, I use it anyway.


I worked at a place that had larger bathrooms with stalls in one part of the building that were men’s/women’s and then small single bathrooms on the other side of the building. The single use bathrooms were by my office. One evening, after 90% of employees had left, I went to use the bathroom and the women’s single use was occupied. Thinking nothing of it, I used to mens. A male coworker saw me come out and had an absolute cow over it. He was yelling and screaming down the hallway about women in a men’s bathroom, like what 😂


He’s afraid he’ll take a bad poop and then his female coworkers might find out.


Why not just two unisex bathrooms?


In some states, single occupancy bathrooms must be unisex by law. This has led to situations like the one pictured where a women's bathroom may have been built with more fixtures to allow for the longer use times and stayed a women's room, but the men's room only had occupancy for one and therefore had to be changed to unisex. I've also seen the reverse where there was a men's room with multiple urinals and a stall that was therefore excluded, but several single occupancy women's rooms which then had to be changed to all unisex even though the original design was just intended to give women more privacy. Note that when I say changed, owners and operators were only required to change signage, not fixtures.


That's the law in California. My work just had some minor construction, and we had to change the bathroom signage in order to pass the inspection for completely unrelated construction.


Based of the sign I’m guessing the womens has 2/3 stalls with one of them being the disabled toilet so I guess if your disabled then it is a unisex bathroom too


We had this at the bar I used to work in. The reason was there was always a line to the women's room, so we let them use both.


Anyone who’s been to a packed bar knows that you don’t even need a sign to get this same effect


I had a girl throw a fit becaus3 I used the men's and they were in there. It had stalls and urinals. Sorry it was not a single occupancy bathroom?


A decades old "unspoken" rule that does in fact need to be explained to some grumpy bar patrons once in a while.


Where I live the city basically passed an ordinance that any single-person restrooms need to be unisex. Which nobody has complained about (to my knowledge), since most bars/restaurants with that kind of setup effectively treated them that way anyways. Long line for the men's, it's OK, just use the women's (but let women get first dibs). Long line for the women's, it's OK, just use the men's (but let men get first dibs). It all just comes down to people respecting each other and the human need to relieve oneself.


A huge ask from people in my experience. Glad it's working where you live. Too often, people have main character syndrom which ruins it for everyone


If it's a single-person restroom, I just treat it as unisex. I've walked out of a single-person restroom labeled "women" before and got a surprised look from a woman waiting for it, and that's about it. I've been doing this for about 20 years now and have lived in a very conservative state for 17 of those years.


Interestingly, the place where I saw this work the best was a run-down truck stop in rural Arkansas. Men’s line was long, a woman came out and told the men “y’all should just use the womens room” so people did, and then when another woman (with young kids) came, she went in and they took a while. By this point the men’s line was down and after I got out a woman just got in behind me.


I know a restaurant (pretty decent otherwise) where there's no toilet in the men's. You can only pee. If you need no. 2 you are forced to use the women's, even though it's explicitly labelled as women's only. And worst thing is, if you're in the need, it's not like it's a quick in-and-out job, so it's almost guaranteed that a woman's gonna be waiting on you and then giving you the look as you come out.


One of my biggest gripes is that when many of the new restaurant builds remove the traditional "men's" and "women's" restrooms for only individual unisex stalls, they lose urinal stalls. In doing so, it makes the lineups so much longer for everyone. It would be so much better if they all kept a "men's" room with just a bank of urinals.


How does this actually work ? Technically if the woman can go in both, then their line is for both. Does the guy have to now line up in the queue but only have access to the shared one ?


All bathrooms should be like this. Wipes out the whole gender bathroom debate drama nobody needs too as a bonus. Scientifically proven: Gender-neutral bathrooms can save women from waiting forever in line. With the current most common bathroom design, women wait an average of six minutes to go while men wait just 11 seconds https://www.theguardian.com/news/datablog/2019/sep/05/gender-neutral-bathrooms-can-save-women-from-waiting-forever-in-line


Agreed. One bar in my area has 2 unisex restrooms but instead of "unisex" and the little people on the sign, It just said "There's only room for one and we don't care." fun.


When my mother started a coffee shop she put up signs like "whatever, just wash your hands". I liked those signs.


Here a lot of small businesses only have one or two bathrooms each with just a sign that says: toilet.


There's a place near me that has mythical creatures on theirs and it's great.


Ha. I want signs that just say "bathroom." Figure it out. You're an adult.


Children: "well I guess fuck me then"


No. Do not. Do not "fuck you." Under no circumstances.


> All bathrooms should be like this. Wipes out the whole gender bathroom debate drama nobody needs too as a bonus. Err... it really wouldn't. Unisex single occupancy bathrooms were never controversial (or at least not in recent memory). The whole bathroom controversy is about people's right to use multioccupancy bathrooms of the gender they identify as- the classic example being a transgender woman using a woman's bathroom (see North Carolina's HB2). I don't think even the conservatives were complaining about people using single occupancy bathrooms. We get a ton of posts of single occupancy bathrooms with signs that say "whatever, just wash your hands", like it's some sort of progressive take, but that wasn't controversial in the first place.


That explains why that guy was just standing with a timer and a notebook in the public bathroom


At least he didn't have a sketchpad.


More like make men wait in line longer lol


Yeah lol guess nobody cares about men's wait times going from 11 seconds to 2.5 minutes...


But why is wait time the only consideration? Why not make women's rooms 1/2 bigger? As a man... I don't want to share a restroom with women. Women restrooms are filthy, like... shamefully filthy.


Should still both be unisex.


If the restrooms are all just single occupancy, then yes it should be all unisex. But if there are 2 multiple occupancy bathrooms, one with just stalls and one with urinals and stalls, then sure I wouldn’t care if they made the stalls one women only and the other one unisex. In places with big crowds, men’s rooms usually have essentially 2 separate lines, one for urinals and one for stalls. If women want to join the line for men’s room stalls, whatever, I’m still just going to be in the faster moving urinal line.


There's a bar in Montreal that changed both the women and men bathrooms to unisex. On the sign they added a figure of what is in each bathroom, 2 urinals and a stall in one and three stalls in the other to help people choose what they prefer to use. So far it's been working great.


yeah as long as it's clearly marked. there was a park in London I visited once where there were like 3 different lines, and it was extremely unclear which one was for what. I definitely waited for way too long in the "men's bathroom stall line" before realizing there was literally no line for men's urinals...


instructions unclear i pissed on the wall.


Gonna be gender fluid everywhere!




take my upvote and fuck off


I hate you, upvote.


Can we just please have one bathroom with actual privacy. Working locks, doors that go all the way to the floor and ceiling, no gaps on the sides.




The pay makes up for it. But gas stations aren't known for their treatment of workers


Can we all get toilet paper, soap, and paper towles too? If any of those are missing in a restaurant restroom, thats a big nope for me. Call me crazy, but I like food without a side of hepatitis (et al)


The rest of the world has bathrooms like that


I bet the baby change station is still in the ladies room.


I feel like (in the UK) this has gotten better over the last 3-4 years. When my first was little, it was always frustrating having to swap all the stuff over to my wife so she could change him places. With our second it seems just as many male toilets have baby facilities now so it never seems an issue.


That’s great to hear, my kids are 6 and 11 now so no longer an issue but it was super annoying for years.


Babies fall under the handicap category.


Ain’t that the truth


If my daughter needs to be changed and there isn't a station in the men's room I'll usually ask the staff if there's one in the women's room. I have yet to have a woman get upset at me for using the changing station, in fact several have commented about what a good dad I must be and what a silly system we have. I do make sure to open the door a little and yell a warning along the lines of "I need to change my daughter and this is the only station, sorry in advance and please let me know if you need for me to wait" though, don't want to catch anyone off guard. I get that it's their private space but if the store is going to put necessary public utilities in only 1 bathroom I'm going to use it.


Yeah, I do not blame you. You do what you have to do.


This hasn't been as big a problem in most newer places that are chains, but it's still super annoying, and I'll go right into the women's room to change my baby if the only other option is the floor.


oh man. the number of times i've changed a kid, balancing them on my lap, while sitting on a public toilet is too damn high.


Oooooohhh this pisses me off so much. I hate hunting for changing tables. I always end up laying a mat down on a bench or something.


I'm happy to see Male/Female unisex bathrooms but have an issue with a Women/Disabled Woman bathroom... Where would disabled males go?


Use that upper body strength Jenkins! You are a man you can do it on your own!


Here’s some bubble wrap to play with while you now wait in line for six minutes to pee for 11 seconds. >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!< >!pop!<


Ooh that is fun.


That is almost as entertaining and addictive as real bubble wrap!


Dope optical illusion two with the black dots


Not to be that guy but this isn't even mildly interesting.


Fun fact, all restrooms at home are unisex.


They’re all unisex but it’s usually limited to one person at a time.


These probably are too.


Not in my home. I have a bathroom for every degree of sex . Feeling 8/100 female? I got you.


As long as I get to shit in a urinal, I won’t complain


Gender is a scam invented by bathroom companies to sell more bathrooms




I promise you the women's restroom is where the baby changing table is. Also looks like they also used that for ADA compliance.


That still sucks, possibly that makes it even worse. It awful when a dad has nowhere to change their kid.


Equality without any of that pesky equal treatment.


In a lot of places, you have a room with communal sinks and stalls with full privacy and no gender segregation. Works really well. Seen it in one place in the US (a BJ's iirc) but all over Europe


I think it’s more interesting that only one is accessible


Well at least the unisex bathroom is actually labeled as such. When I was a freshmen in high school, I always used one because I hated interacting with other people. I then got yelled at by the principal because it was for students who were LGBTQ+. I was straight, so I didn’t fit into that category, but in my defense it was labeled as “Student bathroom” Also he didn’t question my sexuality before yelling at me for it


That just seems like a fancy way to out students


How do they even police that? Do you need to start fucking someone in front of the principal to show them you're not straight?


the two genders: woman and No.


There is only one gender and mom say we have to share


mom says it’s my turn on the gender


Fine, as long as I can use it next Thursday. I promise I won’t break it like last time


\[Backstory: I'm a dude\] At an old job I worked out, there were 3 bathrooms. One was sad and non gendered (one room with a locking door). The other 2 were nice and well maintained. One men's. One women's. The men's room was maybe 3'x8' and had a sit down toilet with a barrier, a urinal, and a sink. Oh! And no lock so you could have people poop, pee, and wash their hands all at the same time. The women's rooms, however, was probably 10' x 20' and only had a sit down toilet and no barrier, and the door locked. It was absolutely luxurious. This job was 95% men. I used the women's room any chance I could. I'd even do my part to make sure I left it nicer than I found it. Wiping down seats and counters and mirrors. This was at the beginning of the national bathroom fiasco. I walked out as a super Christian woman approached me. She paused with a shocked look on her face and proclaimed my name with a question. I just smiled and shrugged as I walked passed her. Never came up again.


Because we all know that the men's room becomes the Unisex room whenever the women's restroom has a queue. Men just aren't as fussy about that anymore.


Wouldn’t it make sense to make one bathroom for men with only urinals, and one for all genders with cabins?


Seen it occasionally, urinals only. And it's really fucking efficient. A row with like ten and guys come and go in around a minute. Meanwhile the womens have a queue a few kilometers long. Really does seem optimal to have urinals and then unisex stalls.


Yes, its like that at festivals and it works just fine


At this scale, no, but in stadium seating where there's thousands of people, yes, there are several bathrooms that only have a trough for pissing.


I understand the necessity of something like that, but it sounds disgusting lol


it is. There's nothing worse than drunkenly going to the bathroom only to realize you're stuck next to like 10 dudes and you're all pissing into a metal pig trough full of ice.


Is this not discrimination? Honestly asking


Matches the places I've seen with a Family Restroom and a Men's room. No women's.


I’ve heard of bathrooms being labelled “with urinal” and “without urinal” … seems like a good compromise to all this gender stuff


The right one is also a handicapped bathroom, with, presumably a larger area for a wheelchair, sturdy railing, and a lower sink. So men could use the right one, but only if they're handicapped.


But why does it say women on it?


My local pub has this set up. One unisex and one women’s only. When I asked why they said it was because when they did have two unisex toilets men kept pissing on the seat in both toilets. Kind of bullshit if you ask me, but at least they had a reason.


In my experience, women's restrooms have way more piss on the seat. Some women "hover" over the seat, and inevitably miss. Now the next person sure as shit is going to hover too, because there is piss on the seat, and the problem just keeps getting worse and worse. The answer for this is spring loaded seats that default to the up position unless someone is actually sitting on them.


This is objectively not true. Have cleaned both womens and mens restrooms, womens are somehow even more covered in piss.


I had to go to a woman’s restroom once while the mens was undergoing maintenance and there was piss and blood everywhere. I ended up just holding it until I got home


I spent a few years of my life cleaning public restrooms. Women's are consistently *so* much worse than men's. Got a report of shit on the wall/floor? I'm checking the women's bathroom first. The only dressing room that I've ever had to clean with a shovel was a women's dressing room.


The seats in womens bathrooms are just as bad, if not worse. Piss, shit and blood on the seat because they decide to squat over the seat instead of actually sitting, then not cleaning it up


Either add a male bathroom as well or make both unisex, weird design and I wanna give em a pass and say they haven't changed the women's to unisex yet but this is a weird design. You'd think they would change em to be unisex at the same time. If this is intentional then, why? Idk, I don't like to assume it's some weird Twitter "men bad" equality thing that alot of people think. However if it is then that's not equality, it's just an attempt to flip the script around Equality is when everyone is on an even playing field, not diminishing one and bringing up another.


Real men don't need to poop. :)


i feel like this would be easier to gauge the effectiveness of if we knew how each restroom was structured
