Bathrooms

There has been so much discussion going on about bathrooms and who should be allowed in which bathroom in public places. So, I've been thinking and thinking and I have the solution! Every public place needs to change their bathroom facilities. No more Men's Room or Ladies' Room. Just have more than one bathroom labeled "Bathroom". Make them a one toilet room, just like at home! When company comes over, we don't worry about who's going into the bathroom, right? So, in public it should be the same way. Stores like Target or Walmart should change their larger bathrooms with all the stalls and put in two or four little rooms and leave it at that. I never see lines of people waiting for bathrooms in those stores, so I'm sure that wouldn't be a major problem. Stadiums would be problematic, but they could just put in porta potties. We use those in a lot of place where that's all they have. They aren't fun but they serve the purpose. And no worries about who is going in because it's only one at a time. The world is changing and some things should change, too. Why freak everyone out when the solution is so clear? -Claudia- image from Pixabay

Mamy men pee where we women want to sit. I donĀ“t think that it is a good idea.

I carry wet wipes with me all the time. And I'm not afraid to use them on toilet seats! lol

I think if all the bathrooms are stalls and not urinals then there is no problem who is in them. I have used the men's room in a pinch as a matter of fact I did last week in a restaurant after a disaster happened in the ladies room. It was a single however.

Were you ever in Walmart with all the stalls out of order except one? I know this might work in a perfect world. I have also used the men's room in a pinch. There is always a line in the women's room.

Well, if Walmart had to put in separate bathrooms (like I know most have a separate Family bathroom), they would have to keep them working, too. And then there would be no stalls and no urinals. Life would just be easier for all the people who are worrying about who would be in there with them.

I think I will pass on the portapotties. I have yet to see any with a sink. I've been to several restaurants with unisex bathrooms, for one person at a time, so your idea may work in certain places. However, I say let those with the same body parts use the same bathrooms, no matter what outfits they wear.

It really doesn't bother me one way or another. I saw on the news today that someone in a line for the ladies' room was arrested because the customers thought it was a guy. Turns out it was a woman who looked a little too manly. People are getting way too crazy about all of this. I'm not usually in a public restroom long enough to be that concerned. lol

@CRK109 I'm not sure of the problem myself. A man- woman looks like a woman and uses a stall just like the other women. She wouldn't set off any problems that way. A woman- man would come into the men's room and use the stall there unless she mastered the ability to use a urinal (which a few of my female friends in high school boasted they could do) so there would still be no problems. As long as they look the same wouldn't they fly under the radar? True story: I was in a public bathroom and a woman came in, cleaned a few things and left. I was the only one that didn't seem to care.

I think that's a great solution! I would like it with a working vent too. I can not go into a porta potty. I just can't. lol

I can't think of any real objections to this solution either. It would certainly simplify things.

Yep. No worries about predators or who else is in the bathroom with us. Everyone could be alone and worry free. :)

This should work, but no one wants to do that. They had rather fight and fuss and create problems.

I say dispense with indoor bathrooms which will give businesses more floor space for merchandise and set up a row of port-o-potties outside.

unfortunately, costs quite a bit'f money fer those restroom makeo'ers. my query's why's this now "out there"? what've those folks been doin' fer years'n end? why's there the need these days to please e'erybody? if one went with yer solutions, wouldn't the disabled be't a disadvantage'n many places? oh, the political correctness'f 't all :(

The disabled wouldn't have a problem with my idea. I'm partially disabled, so I understand those needs, too. You just have a one room bathroom to walk (or ride) into, lock the door and take care of business. No stalls. No urinals. Just multiple rooms. And yes, it would cost money but so do lawsuits. lol

Okay, are you going to fork over the millions of dollars to change all the gym shower rooms in all the schools?

This is what already have here in Europe, most of the places simply have "bathrooms".

There certainly is a lot of potty talk lately! I generally just stay out of the discussions but I really cannot do porter potties they creep me out.

If males and females in a family use the same bathroom, one at a time, then your idea sounds OK to me. And porta potties are shared by every type of wonderful human, so there ya go! We would have to work with the guys on the toilet-seat left up thing and improving their aim. Ladies would have to be very pristine regarding women's issues too. I am sure that could all be worked out by a good bathroom designer.
