Since few people seem to have read the article and fewer still probable clicked the link to the original article let me just post this


the school required her to use a staff bathroom after a grandparent of a male student complained that Maines shouldn't be allowed in the little girls' room.

I am okay with having her(yes I am going to call her, her) using a staff bathroom I think that was the school's only option.
But two questions come up it was only the grandparents of a student who had a problem, and grandparents of a male student, so the parents of the other children didn't have a problem.
Second I would think that the people who would be most likely to have a problem with this type of issue would also have a very big problem with a transgender(read queer) using the same bathroom as boys and watching them and wanting to have sex with them

You can mock him all you want, but he's right. Just because someone has a mental disorder and feels the need to mutilate themselves doesn't actually change them to another gender. It just makes them a person with mutilated genitalia.

Toilet segregation started in Paris in 1739.

France is one of those socialist, communist, European failed states with things like universal healthcare and a functional social safety net.

Therefore toilet segregation is socialism.

Company I used to work for sent a memo out that every one had to use the bathroom corresponding to the gender listed on their original job application. Strangely, we had more female to male transgender employees than male to female.

Running water, a comfortable seat, gossip and social climbing, and slaves to hand you sponges on a stick when you're done.

Compare to Versailles, when ladies would leave the dining room and crap in the hallway outside.

The topic of worst jobs came up one day and we had a guy who'd mowed lawns in a Texas summer, a guy who used to be the pit monkey at a lube shop, and I mentioned I used to clean bathrooms at Six Flags. Kinda wrapped up the conversation on that one, I won.

We don't have a true sex change yet.

Clownfish have sex change. We have plastic surgery, hormone treatments, and pronouns. No need to hold it against people, but it's beyond modern medicine just like regeneration and cloning from a cutting, like plants.

I think if a 15 year old of any sex is brave enough to tell everyone that person really feels like a member of a different sex, and then proceeds to dress like that and take on behaviors consistent with the identified sex and that they are doing all of this just to get a peek at naughty bits in a restroom, well, hell, I have to applaud their ingenuity and perseverance and think they should be rewarded with that sort of access and by my addressing them as they prefer.

Otherwise, I would suspect they are telling the truth, especially if confirmed by parents, grandparents, and shrinks.

Interestingly, when I was in Paris in 1988, there was a restaurant I ate at that had a hallway with a men's room and a ladies' room... and a urinal between 'em.

A lot of clubs have unisex bathrooms with locking doors.  Mostly, so you can go in there with girls and do lines.
 
2013-06-12 10:34:31 PM  

wingnut396: My company's office in Milan has unisex bathroom and many of the places around there had the same.  The sink/mirror area was open.  Each toilet was in a separate small closet like room with a full door.  You go in, do your business, nobody gives a damn.


See, this I would be okay with.

In my state (Washington) most toilets are separated by veneered plywood. However, there are about half inch wide seams running up and down both sides of the door. So if you look at the stalls as you walk past you'll see everyone sitting in them as they pee.

 This is not something I would like to share with guys who are walking through the bathroom. Call me a prude, or call me delusional. Fine, whatever. But no. Not happening. I don't care how much the transgendered folks biatch. Yes, I realize that there might be a girl out there who's gay and sneaking peeks, but statistically speaking, I'll worry about the guys before I worry about her.

RoyBatty: The only reason restrooms need to be segregated is to keep the chicks from peeing all over the seats.

I've been in women's restroom; they are disgusting. Hell no, I don't want women in the men's room, when I sit down to play angry birds I don't want to have to spend 30 minutes wiping the seat and flushing the ass gaskets.

Stupid women and their hovering, I hope cis-women don't pass that on to trans-women.


At work, I use the women's room two floors down because very few women work on that floor. I rarely see pee on the seat. The restroom on my floor is absolutely disgusting.

EvilEgg: I'm ok with not having to deal with women in the bathroom. From what I hear from the people who clean them women are gross.


My job in the summer between graduating high school and going to college was in a gas station/convenience store.  Included in my duties was cleaning the bathroom.  The men's room tended to have a lot of paper towels on the floor.  On a rare occasion someone might have puked with bad aim.  The women's bathroom, however, was farking gross every damn time.  Bloody tampons thrown against the wall and on the floor was the usual expectation.  This was NOT in a bad neighborhood.

As a woman I would prefer not to share a bathroom with men.  I've had to go into the men's room before at a job (my boss made me change the air purifiers when they ran out) and all I can say is no - just no.  The smell was ungodly bad and there never seemed to be soap in there.  I know women can be dirty and messy and I don't like it either, but at least 99% of women will wash their hands after using the bathroom (at least from what I've seen) which for men seems to be a lot lower.  I've noticed this at a job where my desk was near the bathroom and you could hear the sink through the walls.  Also I've noticed this with guys who come to my house.  But I know I'm on fark and people will tell me how hand washing isn't necessary.  Women who pee on seats are gross, but I will avoid those toilets with pee on the seats and I always use seat covers/toilet paper on the seat.  I don't need to add no hand washing and boogars on the wall to the list of gross things in the bathroom.  I'll stick with stinky tampon smell and probably peed on seats and not quadruple the problem.

dletter: Bathrooms I don't see a big deal about, since in a uni-sex bathroom you wouldn't usually have urinals, and nobody should be trying to peek into your stall.

The whole thing with "my transgender born male should be able to shower with the 7th grade girls"... not so on board with.


I think you've got the right idea.  I can't really imagine anything worse for someone with body issues than than a bunch of girls laughing at their transgendered dick, or a bunch of guys trying to tap a sweet piece of their transgendered ass in the locker room.

fusillade762: My city already has this covered. For new public buildings, at least.

Multnomah County requiring unisex bathrooms

[assets.nydailynews.com image 635x551]

Single stall, locking door. Problem solved.


You know, it's about time, but I'm annoyed with the fact that this is NOT being done for the obvious reasons. IE: people with children, people with nervous bathroom habits, germophobes, handicapped individuals who find more ease of movement in an actual bathroom and not a stall, and so forth. There are a million good reasons for having a single-unit, unisex bathroom on various floors in buildings, but the only reason it's being talked about is because of a very small segment of the population cannot adapt to a situation that, for most people, can have a solution other than "more bathrooms." I've seen people who will go into the bathroom of the other sex and lock the door (if a single bathroom that can be locked) because their bathroom is full.

I remember when a group on my college campus tried to get these bathrooms to be mandatory in all buildings, REGARDLESS of building age, plumbing, and so forth (noting that one of the buildings where I routinely went to class had sex-specific bathrooms on ALTERNATING FLOORS, it was so old; at least two floors did have storage rooms converted into single-toilet handicapped bathrooms). Because, literally, less than 1% of the able-bodied people on campus may have been put out of their way (as some buildings already had non-gender, single occupacy, lockable bathrooms).

Long story short: these bathrooms should have been mandatory for years, but only now does anyone in government give a shiat because they're afraid of the political repercussions.

2013-06-12 11:56:05 PM  
I have decided in my second marriage (and my girl is fine with this) that bathroom activities are to be done in private. No conversations with the partner as they sit on the toilet. No standing there whizzing while she's in the room watching. No watching her do her business or deal with her menstrual issues. We go in the bathroom and close the door. We do not share the room when one of us has to use it for evacuation.

I know when you're in a relationship it's tempting to just do these things in front of each other, but I am positive that once you do, it kills the romance a little (unless you're a fetishist). It takes away some of the dignity you once had. It lets your partner see you in the most unflattering position you can possibly be in, and experience things that they will remember unkindly.

RoyBatty: spongeboob: Since few people seem to have read the article and fewer still probable clicked the link to the original article let me just post this


the school required her to use a staff bathroom after a grandparent of a male student complained that Maines shouldn't be allowed in the little girls' room.

I am okay with having her(yes I am going to call her, her) using a staff bathroom I think that was the school's only option.
But two questions come up it was only the grandparents of a student who had a problem, and grandparents of a male student, so the parents of the other children didn't have a problem.
Second I would think that the people who would be most likely to have a problem with this type of issue would also have a very big problem with a transgender(read queer) using the same bathroom as boys and watching them and wanting to have sex with them

I think if a 15 year old of any sex is brave enough to tell everyone that person really feels like a member of a different sex, and then proceeds to dress like that and take on behaviors consistent with the identified sex and that they are doing all of this just to get a peek at naughty bits in a restroom, well, hell, I have to applaud their ingenuity and perseverance and think they should be rewarded with that sort of access and by my addressing them as they prefer.

Otherwise, I would suspect they are telling the truth, especially if confirmed by parents, grandparents, and shrinks.


I don't think any 15 year old would have the patience to do all that just to catch a glimpse, isn't that what the internet is for?  And really what kind of look can you get in a bathroom, girls are in stalls so you would be caught peeking and still not get to see anything, and for the opposite sure you could try to look when a guy is using the urinal but you aren't going to see much.

Having read the "liberal writer's" article I have to agree that they are messing with the kid in question. Having her use the staff restroom is probably the only option they are prepared for though.

spongeboob: MadSkillz: puffy999: 
As someone who has trouble peeing at urinals if there are any people in the room, I support this message.

AS someone who gets creeped out by the guy next to me just staring ahead and not peeing when using the urinal I can also get behind this.


Come on now, we all get bladder shy every now and then.  Pro tip: Imagine peeing in the eye of your worst girlfriend.  Then just let it happen.

While I must make it clear that I am by no means a connesewer of public restrooms, I can't see this as anything other than a basic mechanical problem. Men's restrooms have urinals, for the sake of expedient urination, with some having precious few actual toilets, save for large areas like arenas and Wally World. In many cases, that display toilet is also used as a urinal during periods of high traffic, leaving the next unfortunate soul to clean up some careless clod's piss on occasion. I doubt women like that cleanup any more than men. As the infinite wisdom of the Fark Collective has revealed, many women improperly use the thrones in their own restroom. Let's not even get into what places that serve alcohol likely foist upon the janitorial staff daily, or the mess that would result from having a similar display urinal in a women's restroom.

And man, if there were ever a valid reason to trot out "think of the children", this is it. How many parents would wind up being stuck 'standing guard' for the sick farks that undoubtedly exist, further crowding these omni-latrines, and how many parents would regret not doing so? If we're talking single toilet, sink, and a door with a push-lock, sure. If the concern is over transgendered individuals feeling out-of-place in either mass-restroom, 1-3 small rooms would very likely fill that niche just fine.That said was there ever any huge qualm with a post-op transsexual using a women's restroom?

Racial segregation, on the other hand, is an abomination stemming from rulling-class-reinforced ill-educated classification of groups as 'unclean', 'savage', and 'untrustworthy', or just so the targeted groups 'know their place'. To compare this to sorting people, by whether they have a penis or vagina, isn't just stupid or ridiculous; it's farking abhorrent exploitation of some of humanity's most horrifying actions.

And yes, I think public communal restrooms should be swapped out for a bunch of smaller rooms each equipped with a toilet and a small sink (and a bidet, if I had my way, but this is the USA and we're weird).

Why do we insist on having big rooms with toilets all close to each other, with nothing between them but tiny stalls that don't even go all the way from the floor to the ceiling? We have to sit there and hear the guy next to us, and see his shoes. We have to do our best not to make too many noises because it's just embarrassing. We have to contend with creeps who peek over the top. We have to deal with people who walk up to the stall door and try to get in before they realize it's occupied (and we hope that the door actually has a working latch, too). Sometimes, in men's rooms, we don't even get doors on our stalls.

I don't want to hear, see, smell, or need to fend off other people when I'm trying to do my business!!!

Another thing I would approve of in these smaller, individual bathrooms: Doors that won't unlock until you wash your hands after using toilet. Too many times I've watched guys get out of a stall and walk straight out the door. EWWWWW!!! You people make me sick! No, really-- You're making everyone sick by touching things after wiping your ass and touching the public toilet. WASH YOUR F♥CKING HANDS YOU F♥CKING SICK ANIMALS!

I don't want to be judged by women when I let out that primal "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh" when I barely make it to pee inside.  Women can never comprehend the agony of rushing for a bathroom while knowing that AT ANY SECOND, hell 20 seconds tops, this problem could be solved.  All you have to is cast aside social contracts (and a few misdemeanors).

Besides, I've worked as a barback before and cleaned all the bathroom.  Ladies can be nasty.
