How do you feel about Uni-sex Bathrooms?:

That's not a good reason in and of itself, though, as the cost would be disproportionate for the benefits gained.

To be fair, it's a cost saving initiative in the long run.

I advocated this as an answer to all the stupid shower questions regarding Don't Ask Don't Tell. If everyones just as uncomfortable, it's all good.

Well, I'm neutral on the idea. I'd just like a more convincing answer than that one.

Unisex bathrooms are good if you can only afford a single-rider to begin with. If you've got the funds to accommodate the trans population in the first place - that is why they're a big issue, right? - then you can still do a single-rider (as the trans population is just not that high) and keep the regular bathrooms so everyone's comfortable.

We're already sort of edging in this direction anyhow; I never used to see rooms for baby changing (which AFIK are unisex as far as the adults are concerned), and I've also seen "kiddie bathrooms" where adults can take their children (you know, eliminating the problem of male parent/female child and whose bathroom they use), so...

I for one don't see anything wrong with the concept. I've cleaned fucking bar bathrooms before, and in such an environment both genders seem to turn into complete orangutans with regard to hygiene. Neither sex seems to be able to remember where they put their piss after one too many.

That, and I'd love to see the demise of the urinal. Those things were a bitch to clean, especially when someone elected to puke in it.

Ladies, you can check your makeup with a dude in the stall behind you taking a poop. Men, you can take a leak with a woman next door doing the same thing. I've lived with roommates, girlfriends and the like since I was 17. Sharing a bathroom is called being a fucking adult, yo.

And if you want to have a private talk, go for a walk. Who wants to hang out in a restroom anyway?
If I were to write some of the strange things that come under my eyes they would not be believed.

What's so adult about sharing bathrooms ? I've had to share one since I was a kid.evil grin
I was wondering why frisbees got bigger as they got closer then it hit me.

I've shared one for much of my adult life, no qualms there.

Hell, I've been to places where the "bathroom" consisted of simply the great outdoors, and everybody had to use it.

At this one place where I used to work we had a unisex bathroom. The term my bosses used was "sexually integrated", since that's supposed to distinguish it from those one-person unisex bathrooms. No one ever had any problems with it. Then again, part of the job was educating others about overcoming society's gender norms.

Fun fact: We girls neither poop nor pee. We just pretend to.

It's true. There's just like... pink dust coming out of us.

It smells really good.

@kay4today That's what I pretended they did anyway. I'm glad my fantasy came true.

Quick question. Do any guys actually react like female hygine products are really that revolting? I know I don't and I have never seen any of my buddies react when a woman spills her purse, but it's pretty prevelant in movies and shit.
Please.

I don't think I've ever seen someone get grossed out by an unused tampon before.

Then again, this is an agricultural area with ranches and stuff everywhere, and you kind of see stuff on a regular basis.

They think me mad
Skimmed through the thread instead of just thread hopping. Really regret doing that.

Anyway, first college dorm I stayed at had unisex bathrooms while I was there. Felt awkward the first couple days, but everyone got over it quickly. A bathroom's a bathroom.
To the last I grapple with thee; from hell's heart I stab at thee; for hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee.
Looks like this is a bumped topic, I found one of my old posts talking about "tampon murals". What the hell.

Not sure what I've said on the topic before (no doubt idiotic things), but I'm generally approving of the idea. I've not used one before, but the reactions of the people who have are very good reasons to be in favour.

You talking about used or unused products? 'Cause blood's a little icky all on its own; if you add in being excreted out the crotch . . .
