And I’ve just thrown a baby onto a towel, so I’ll be in the ones on the right 😉
Ahahaha, that comment made my day. Thank you, Hannah.
Beaten to the punch by Hannah D:
Trying to place that train line now… (I’ve been in a big bitch about some horrendous toilet signs at a club once, ended up with bullshit from the club owners and “We can cover those over” from the event organisers :D)
(My personal policy is sort by ‘do I intend to use the urinal?’ followed by ‘which is closest?’)
(I am procrastinating)
Also, I accidentally left the wrong name in :p
My policy is pretty similar, actually. There’s one place I go to that has the bathrooms in a line down the corridor, and I just use whichever is closest because it’s always so quiet. The rest of the time I use the disabled toilet, after a very thorough scan to make sure there are no potential disabled folk that might need it.
Toilets are such a bugger.
I like your Disgusted from Tunbridge Wells name! 😀
using the disabled toilets is actually a good idea since they´re pretty much unisex…a friend of mine has the same problem. to quote him/her: ‘if you look male and get caught on the women´s toilet they think you´re a perv and kick you out, if you look like a woman and get caught in the men´s bathroom they think you´re a slut and you get molested. either way you´re screwed.’ thus he/she usually chooses the toilet by her/his current clothing and hopes no one peeps into his/her stall.
Just reminded me of this hilarious but rather depressing discussion on toilet signs from Sociological Images. Enjoy.
Oh. This one’s familiar. — Once, just having entered the toilet at a bar, I heard from the outside: “Hey! That dude just went into the women’s toilet.”, whereupon someone else replied “Well, at least he was wearing a skirt.”
(I’m a boy. I always wear skirt. And I don’t wait in line if there’s an unoccupied toilet.)
We used to have a gender free bathroom at the nudist club we visited in San Antonio and it was a little disconcerting at first peeing side by side with the ladies but you get used to it. Of course all the showers at all the nudist clubs are gender free. I mean what would be the point of a private shower at a nudist club?
My son went to Queer Prom here a few months back. The thing that impressed him the most was that the event organizers had covered over the signs to the restrooms with posters that said “This room has toilets”.
Did you know that gender-specific bathrooms initially started as a novelty at a party? I have NO idea why they caught on like they did. Not only are they a pain in the ass for non-cisgendered folk, they are a total nuisance for parents of opposite gendered children, and all the arguments FOR them seem to fall apart when you are dealing with queer folk of any rainbow shade.
Wow, I had no idea! But it doesn’t surprise me, haha. That is glorious.
“Did you know that gender-specific bathrooms initially started as a novelty at a party?” <- Do you have a citation for that? Cuz it would be REALLY handy…
I don’t have a citation, and I can’t even remember where I read it, but if anyone has a proper source for that please mention it!
People in the bathroom generally glare at me and hold their children close to them, like I want to steal them and bring them home or something. I’m always tempted to tell them that I don’t want their children since I’m on a strict diet of babies, puppies, kittens, and all things cute.
