Unisex Public Bathrooms
October 2, 2008 5:36pm CST
This might sound a bit odd or down right "Weird" question but has anyone ever use an unisex public bathroom? I remember as growing up in South Korea, I remember using a public bathroom & it was unisex bathroom... Even when I was in school there, there was so "girl's room" & "boy's room", it was all unisex bathrooms in school... I'm not talking about those 1 person bathrooms that either man or woman can use 1 person at a time but I'm talking about full blown multi-person bathrooms that many people at once use... I don't know what brought that idea into my head but it just dawned on me that I've never seen it here in U.S... Any experiance with one?

I've not seen these. But recently there have been a couple of occasions, where I have used public bathrooms (or public toilets as we say in the UK) and they have been a bit different. As you can see from my Avatar, I'm a bloke. In Holland over the summer went to use a public restroom at a railway station. I wanted a "sit-down job" or to do "a number two". So I went to the 'men's' and all there was, were urinals! Not a cubicle or stall to be seen. This was a bit strange! So I went to the attendant. She kinda explained that the cubicles are shared with the woman and so I was directed to wait in line with the females, though I noticed the males were only allowed to use a certain section of stalls! (Guess some men are quite messy and the ladies understandably don't like this!) Quite disconcerting, when one isn't used to this system. Then, going to a London nightclub, last month, found a similar situation, though there wasn't a queue this time! It seems that space is becoming at such a premium at times, this arrangement makes the most economic sense! LoL! What a discussion!!!
