[quote]It’s likely that many people who oppose gender-neutral bathrooms and locker rooms don’t know a trans person personally, they said.

It's likely those who favor gender-neutral bathrooms and locker rooms don't know any real NON-trans people. They certainly don't know young girls and teenagers. Or they don't care.

Of course, no comments allowed by the LA Times because they know the overwhelming people do not agree with this.

and they person they go to is one of those who runs a GSA Club - Gender-Sexuality Club - the ones that invite kids to attend after school and don't tell them what they're about or tell the parents.

The LA Times is as bad as the WaPo when it comes to trans propaganda.

[quote]The most commonly voiced concern these days against communal, all-gender bathrooms is that students — particularly girls — will be harassed or assaulted by the opposite sex. This belief has roots in the historical argument that trans people are the ones to be feared in bathrooms, advocates told me. But that’s a perspective that wouldn’t be well-received in a politically progressive and LGBTQ-friendly city like Long Beach.

The belief that women will be assaulted by men does not have its roots in the belief that trans people should be feared.

Men have been assaulting women forever, including at the LA Times.

And of course this being a school bathroom means girls will be having their period for the first time so will need privacy to deal with that. And seeing as everyone has a phone they can record anything on, just let girls have their own space.

We had Gender Neutral bathrooms long before this whole trans movement. They were call Men's restrooms. It's where women who didn't feel like they didn't want to wait in line for their own bathrooms would just barge into a Men's room proclaiming it's an emergency. Never mind that some guys might be in there with their cocks out over a urinal. Never mind that they could have barged into the women's restroom the same way. Now all of a sudden it upsets them that they might have to wait for a man to come out of a gender neutral bathroom before they can go in.

Trans tell us that they make up less than one percent of the population, yet we are wasting time, energy, and money, on creating toilets for them to use, or to allow them to use toilets of the opposite sex that they think they are. Oh, but none of this was planned or controlled. Trans just want to live their lives without harm or inconveniencing anyone. What lying bullshit. The trans movement is literal cancer.

They introduced gender neutral bathrooms at my work place. Consists of 4 completely enclosed mini-rooms in a row, each with their own basin/hand dryer - so no issues with privacy at all. It's a bit startling to bump into a male colleague there when arriving or leaving, but I'm used to it now. Sorry but I have noticed that men tend to be messier. It's common to find a toilet seat left up with pee all over the rim and sometimes unflushed. I tend to avoid those. Must admit, I preferred the gender specific facilities, but gender neutral isn't so bad, certainly isn't unsafe and it does solve a problem for the trans/gender fluid/non-binary folks.

The absolutely insane thing about the opposition to gender neutral bathrooms is the fact their the norm in conservative Eastern European countries. I was shocked when I visited Serbia and Romania, and rarely (if ever) saw male or female bathrooms. Also, in Germany (where I currently live) it isn’t uncommon for a cleaning woman to walk into a bathroom being used by men, and women will use a stall in the male bathroom of the wait is too long.

Despite my skepticism of most things related to the whole transgender issue, I welcome the fact it’s getting us away from a rather silly concept.

I have no issue with gender neutral bathrooms if they provide privacy and safety for everyone, but some of the arguments used against women bringing up safety issues can easily be used against trans people themselves. From the article, for example:

[quote]At the end of the day, the safety issue is a moot point, said Rodrigo Heng-Lehtinen, executive director of National Center for Transgender Equality. If students are being harassed in bathrooms, that’s a school-climate issue, not a gender issue.

“Harassment is still illegal in a gender-neutral facility,” he said. “Protections and norms around acceptable behavior still apply.”

That can be easily said to a trans or gender fluid person who doesn't want to use a sex-segregated bathroom.

Should locker rooms and showers be gender neutral? Even in Germany where the sauna is neutral the shower and changing room are not. Nor are most toilets. The reason: The commode uses more water and the urinal uses less.

In my local arts complex they knocked the male and female toilets together to make 1 gender neutral bathroom and one extra disabled space with baby changing facilities.

The men's had 6 open urinals and 3 cubicles, the women's had 6 cubicles. The one space has 8 sit down toilets and 2 urinals all of which are in cubicles. So from 15 toilets to 10.

There has always been a disparity in the number of toilets in traditional (gendered) restrooms, and if you think about it for a nanosecond, you can see that urinals are smaller and take up less room, and men have the advantage of not having to pull down their pants and sit to pee, so are therefor quicker. In an office I worked in throughout the 90s, there were two restrooms on our floor and the women's room was always occupied and with a line if there was anything going on in the office. I can't tell you the number of times I would be the last man in the men's room and when I came out, the women standing there needing to go would ask me to stand guard while three or four of them went in and used the toilet. Fortunately we were all professionals so there was rarely a piss-on-the-floor or covering-the-toilet-seat problem.

[quote]should have toilets/bathrooms made for them?

We've built toilets everywhere for another class of people to use and we've even admitted "if I go in the disabled bathroom then I feel like I am taking it from other people who need it". Single-person restrooms are an acceptable accommodation in my book.

I understand the fears that women have regarding men (biologically or conceptually aside) using their single-gendered restrooms. The solution is to have three or more restrooms clearly marked. We're not talking about having to retrofit every building in America (the world?); and when they're designing new buildings the added cost of a couple of additional walls and plumbing is trivial. A third of all men's rooms could be converted to gender-neutral and there would be little impact on use or wait times.

The bottom line is that if we remove the whole trans-gendered issue and look at this from a logistical point of view, it makes sense. But be respectful of people suffering gender dysphoria and you'd think the world was crashing down around our ankles. Or at least the piss.

by Anonymousreply 48May 28, 2022 3:05 PM

We don't want to be in the same room as men. Tiny cubicles still in the same room with the opposite SEX is not acceptable. Not in a school or workplace especially. Women do other things that they feel safe and comfortable doing in front of women they wouldn't in f/o men.

If you need any more proof that men rule this fucking world and dominate women look no further than men determining that women don't need the privacy of female only spaces like women's restrooms and women's changing/locker rooms. They are completely ignorant of the needs of women. Another exhibit that trans don't know shit about the opposite sex. And don't give a shit about them.

R49, the locker room is a bigger issue than the restroom. There is no privacy in a gym locker room. Restroom stalls, fortunately many places that aren’t big department stores only have two toilets, which are full rooms, not just stalls. They just change the signs so that either toilet is available for the next person in line. This has already happened in my neighborhood and doesn’t seem controversial. I think dads like it too because then they get access to changing tables for their babies, which traditionally were only in women’s rooms.

R62, speaking as a woman, it would not bother me. I think the specific issue previously came up in polling and it doesn’t bother most women if someone who feels unsafe in a men’s room uses a women’s room. That includes feminine gay men; to me, I wouldn’t mind. Men have less privacy in their bathroom, which is a problem because it could lead to kind of “what are you looking at?” kinds of attacks from straight men at the urinal. It’s a legitimate safety issue. Of course that could also be helped by creating more privacy in men’s rooms. I do feel like the locker room is a much different situation. The problem is being made worse because of increasing political divisions - and in my opinion it’s because in some cases people are chemically and surgically mimicking intersex conditions, and thinking that’s it’s a good idea to physically and surgically mimic intersex conditions in kids. It’s erasing the existence of actual intersex people, who will still have these needs regardless of what happens with the trans women who don’t have surgery, are attracted to women, and have lived for some portion of their lives identifying as straight men with a fetish. Hormones cause heart attacks in older men, cancer in older women, early death in athletes, osteoporosis and pain in girls with precocious puberty. Studies from outside the field of transitioning would suggest they aren’t harmless. And the language around transitioning is wishful thinking- that you change yourself to become true self. That’s not an objective way to talk about something that has now become a part of mainstream medicine and pediatric medicine.

by Anonymousreply 76May 29, 2022 6:03 AM

Well, the stalls lock, so when she leaves the stall she's basically in a semi public place where the mirrors and sinks are. The main door to that part does not have a lock, its just for looks anyone can walk in or out. It's just so people seated in the main room don't have to stare straight into the washroom, probably the safest place you could be. I have seen other similar setups where after exiting the stall, the main wash place is completely open with just a sort of island high privacy wall in case you don't want people to see you doing your thing in front of a mirror.

R79, nothing is ever completely safe. Nothing stops male employees from going into the ladies room to change a trash bag at the local CVS or Walgreens, places that aren’t usually packed with people where the single stall in the ladies room is probably unoccupied 90 percent of the time. Outside the stall, opening the door would reveal you to anyone standing near the door outside, so logically, you know going in that anything while you’re standing at the sink is not private. As someone pointed out previously, people who look gender ambiguous are already using the bathroom they feel more comfortable with and no one notices. Or, at the small office I work in, none of the bathrooms are labeled as anything; they are just bathrooms, the same as you’d have in your house. If someone was going to engage in predatory behavior they could do it more easily after a woman exits the CVS into a parking lot at night, rather than in a well lit area where anyone else who came in at random would see a guy trying to look under the stall or through the gap in the door. But again, locker rooms are different. I don’t think the unisex bathroom issue is really controversial, especially if they’re well done and well made.

Almost all places of business with which I work now use gender-neutral bathrooms.

The best situations for schools is to have male, female and gender-neutral restrooms with a lock (for which teachers and staff have the key for students to use).

For younger students, whatever the situation, adults should monitor the restrooms to ensure appropriate behavior (and habits) are encouraged and enforced.

I had a twin sister and never understood "boys" and "girls" rooms, when it was obvious the girls always were in a line while the boys breezed through (peeing all over the floor and walls making it go so much faster for boys).

One of the main problems here is the conflation of two different bathroom types:

1. the single use bathroom which anyone can use, and lock the door. Historically, these were set up as two separate rooms with two separate doors, and one says men, and the other says women. Then they changed it to "Gender Neutral Restroom", which is kind of silly and performative. These bathrooms should ALWAYS have just said "RESTROOM", and anyone can use it and lock the door. That accounts for many types of publc restrooms, and these facilities get lumped in with the group style restrooms.

2. the group restroom, which has historically said men or women. there are two separate larger rooms, where men can go in to theirs, and use a urinal or a toilet, or where women can go in and use the toilet (there are typically more toilets in the women's room since space has been freed up by there being no urinals). THIS type of bathroom indeed needs to be debated as to whether or not the gender should be neutralized, and there are good arguments against combining genders for these, as has been said above.

The conflation here is part of the problem I think.

That said, I went into a group restroom which was labeled gender neutral quite recently, and there were men and women in line for this. There were urinals and stalls, and everyone waited in line, and it was no big deal. But, this was at a neighborhood small movie theater in Oakland CA. In my mind, with this environment, it was easy to rationalize shared use. It just took a bit of getting used to, and some novelty was involved. Women were walking by me while I was peeing in the urinal, and it was odd to me. But yes, I lived, and it was kind of a liberating experience, actually.

But that's not to say that all group bathrooms need to be converted to this. There are indeed certain environments where the controls are not fully in place, and the crowds are from a more broad spectrum. I can see women feeling unsafe in a shared bathroom when at a nightclub, especially when there is alcohol and likely drugs in play.

I am fine with gender-neutral bathroom if the bathroom is designed for one person at a time--meaning there is no one else in the bathroom with you.

However, I am not all fine and entirely disagree with a gender-neutral bathroom if there are more than one person or multiple people in the bathroom at the same time. Sorry, NO. I don't want women in the bathroom with me while I'm standing at the urinal pissing.

by Anonymousreply 114May 29, 2022 8:08 PM

R41, what often happens is the group restrooms for men and for women don't change at all, they just change the signage. So, what used to be a men's room with urinals and stalls is now open season for both genders. So yes, in those situations, a guy using a urinal will have a woman waiting in line nearby to use the next available stall...and in what used to be a women's room, you'll have a line that includes men, who are forced to use a stall even if they have to pee.

R123, maybe because the women got more intoxicated/vomited more? I could see that being a problem at a bar. In women’s rooms I see some messes being made by germophobes, exacerbated by the availability of paper toilet seat covers. The people who use them are too afraid of germs to dispose of them. They leave them on the seat, part dipped into the toilet water, and then don’t flush because they’re afraid to touch the handle, so the whole mess is really offputting to clean up as just the next in line in the bathroom, not an employee equipped with gloves. I do it anyway. Fortunately hardly anyone uses those. Also small kids use the women’s room and could make a mess.

A gender neutral bathroom, is just a bathroom with a toilet, sink and a door you can lock. There is often a changing table and a smaller urinal.. This is for individuals, men with babies, the disabled and others who feel more safer in an individual bathroom.

A gender specific bathroom is a bathroom with toilets in stalls, a row of sinks (and in the males, a row of urinals.)

Again, many people are still apparently very confused, and conflating the two types of bathrooms exactly like R111 said earlier.

The term "Gender Neutral Restroom" has been now applied to BOTH styles of bathrooms: single use and multi stall. That's the problem here, and people (mostly GOP) are getting nuts over the performative signage for this placed on single use bathrooms. The damn bathrooms should always have just said Restroom, and have a toilet and sink, and let there be more than one of these single use bathrooms, if needed to accommodate a larger crowd.

R143 is at least clarifying their position here, and stating her boundaries. Some of y'all are real busy trying to define what GNR actually means, but it really has been used on both styles. Hence the conflation and confusion here.

Gender neutral multi-stall bathrooms create the potential for a man and woman who are complete strangers to be alone together. And then insert large age differences or teenage males into that potential scenario.

Males risk being suspected of or actually accused of inappropriate behavior.

Females risk being subject to anything ranging from inappropriate behavior such as lingering/flirting up to to a sexual assault.

Years ago, while eating at a Taco Bell, I sneezed and peed a little. I went to the public restroom, for girls. I took off my wrap skirt and dried it under the hand blowers. I woman walked in as I stood there, shirt and shoes only, still trying to dry my shame.

Don't tell me that people don't undress in public restrooms. There are times when you MUST do so.

No. I will never use a unisex restroom. Such a place will just wind up being a second set of toilets and sinks for MEN.

For God's sake, many gay men have sex in men's public toilets! How can people not realize this?? A man or two or more might think that the coast is clear, so why not go for it?? Then someone walks in-- like a woman with her old Mama?? See my point?

You can F/F me, but I'll just come back and make a similar comment on a similar thread as soon as one pops up.

I feel uncomfortable when women bring their elementary school age boys into the bathrooms at the mall with them. I don't like it. And I won't let anyone make me feel ashamed of that fact. But,, I'm sure, someone on DL will try.

R182, exactly. Some of these men are like cats - stupid.

Get out of our bathrooms. And take your dick with you.

Cats are actually very smart, r184.

I LOVE CATS!! They do not listen to me; they remind me of women.
