jehovahs witness protection: NEWSFLASH: Rapes in Portland increase by 500%.


NEWSFLASH: if the only thing that prevents you from raping someone is that they're not in the bathroom stall next to you, then you're the one with the problem.

Many (most?) bathrooms in European companies are just that, bathrooms (toilets).  They are gender-neutral and there is no problem with safety or privacy.  The common area is a large bathroom with counters and sinks and it is surrounded with private (PRIVATE) toilet rooms.  I mean they are complete rooms with doors that close and lock and not the stupid stalls we have here where there is a 16" gap from the floor to the privacy  wall.  They are really private closeable, lockable rooms with a toilet or a hole in the ground but there are no "I see your underwear around your ankles" gaps.

I actually had a kid try to reach under the stall wall at an airport loo and steal my wallet, I almost (or maybe did) break his wrist/elbow, I was pissed but realized he was just a kid and let go, he ran like h3ll.

To continue, I had to use a stool in an Australian park where the walls went to the ground but the tops were only about 5 ft high.  Their normal bathrooms were European but these park loos were a different experience.  I was sitting and two young female things walked by and said hi.  I said hi back and tried to get the log rolling again, took a while but happened (I know too much).

Ah America, so wonderful, so weird.

Why is this an issue? If you have a pecker you use one room if you have a vajayjay you use the other. The whole issue is stupid.

Omahawg: PacificaFitz: blustacon: I can see pee on the seats from here.

my thoughts exactly.  I never thought that boys and girls have their own bathroom for privacy, I just assumed it was because the girls would refuse to use the same disgusting bathroom as us guys

I used to think that until I worked as a custodian in college.

women's bathrooms are fricking nasty.

when was the last time you walked into the men's room to find a used maxi pad stuck on a wall?


I used to clean the bathrooms at a grocery store I worked at years ago. After awhile I refused to clean the womans bathroom again. They were the most disgusting things I've ever seen. And yeah the bloody maxi-pads and tampons just flung everywhere were the worst. Is it really that hard to put them in the little bin right next to the fn toilet? And seriously ladies when you pick your nose just fling the boogers into the water, not onto the stall walls or door.

Somehow, I started school in the 70's and graduated High School in the 80's and, by some amazing luck, manged to do it without gender neutral bathrooms, no score taking soccer, "new math", etc.  We had peanut butter sandwiches, played dodge ball, didn't take anti-bully courses, and by some magic manged to make it through.

This new age silliness is nuts.  Boys go to the boys room, girls go to the girls room, boys try to drill a hole in the girls locker room, etc.  That's the way it was meant to be.  If you're confused about your gender, rub some dirt on it and get back into the game.  And stay off my lawn.

Metalithic: remus: mjbok: dave2198: Yeah, those days were the best... when confused teenagers put on a fake face to get through school everyday, only to hang themselves in the bathroom before graduation.

As this whole new-age shiny happy participation trend has grown (from 2000 on) suicide rates among kids has steadily increased.

I really don't see how the way kids are growing up today prepares them for the real world.  One of the few things that I learned from a sports coach growing up was there are two things that sports help prepare you for in life:  Winning and losing.  To be successful at life you need to know how win with grace and lose with dignity, because over the course of your life you will do plenty of both.

//Even kids realize how much of a joke some of this stuff is.  Ask any 3rd grader that just finished a soccer game.  They might not know the exact score, but they will know if they won or lost.

Heck yah.  Back in the day, we just dealt with it.  No crying about it.  We didn't have a single suicide my entire school career.  We won or lost sports game and the winners shook hands with the losers and said 'good game'.   When the winners got a trophy, the other team was expected to stick around to watch and clap.  It hurt like hell, but you saw what you wanted and worked to get better.

Yes, I'm sure today's youth suicide rate is entirely caused by an inability to lose soccer games gracefully. It couldn't have anything to do with increasingly vicious bullies gaining constant access to their victims via smartphones and internet, or the growing number of emotionally distant and fragmented families, or the pressure to prepare for university beginning in elementary school to avoid being labelled failures by parents who demand their little boy/or girl graduates top of their class and goes to Harvard so they can earn their love.


If you think bullies are worse today you're crazy. Yes they can bully on social media, but would you rather have someone call you a name on Facebook or stick your head in the toilet?

You're making the association of social media bullying with increased suicide rates. I counter with it is more due to the coddling of kids who don't learn to deal with failure and disappointment.

Apparently, you have never been in a woman's bathroom.

We were in Barnes & Noble the other day, and I went to the bathroom.  It was horrifying.  I cleaned as best as I could to make it useable, and met back up with my boyfriend who was talking to the cashier about the DVD he was buying.  He said to me, "damn, you looked like you wanted to kill her, nice green eyes" and I said, "seriously, no.  I was still traumatized and trying to figure out how there was not only pee on the toilet seat and the floor, but on the WALLS of the bathroom.  There. Was. Pee. On. The. Walls.  Unless cashier chick did it, I had no thoughts of her whatsoever."  I still have no idea how that all happened, because as he said, "you chicks don't even have the equipment to do that."  Me: "YES I KNOW. THAT IS WHY I AM TRAUMATIZED."

While I am sure not all of us are (because I know I am not) most women are DISGUSTINGLY FILTHY in public bathrooms.

I'm confused about the whole hoopla over them being gender neutral. They're locking bathrooms. They only fit one person (aside from a quick fling). They're just frigging bathrooms, they're not male, female, or gender-neutral anymore than your home bathrooms are. Anyone can use them, and everyone will, which is more efficient than artificially dividing a scare resource. Basic farking economics.

I friggen hate bars that separate single-stall bathrooms into sexes. Everyone gets really uncomfortable when there's a long line for theirs and no one in the other. If I really really gotta piss I'll hit it, but I'm farked if I'm trying to impress someone who gives me a dirty look for it.

"Four student bathrooms and two staff restrooms, all single-stall, were part of the conversion."

They're one-seaters. They will be the most popular bathrooms in the school.

Not as good as single seater handicap bathrooms, but almost.
