That's how our bathrooms are at work. I frequently find myself telling customers that they can use the opposite sex's bathroom when theirs is preoccupied.
I think there, the idea is that you're trying to make certain that one bathroom is always open to half your customers.
I understand why some people would be apprehensive about a multi-person bathroom being unisex, but the idea doesn't really bother me at all. Hell, most people are used to sharing a bathroom with the opposite sex just because of growing up with family. The difference is just that home bathrooms are generally single-person, but, even then, who here hasn't had to use the toilet when a family member is in the shower? (It's different because it's family, I know.)
Heh. I HATE using the toilet when my wife's in the shower or bath, actually. Especially (sorry to get a bit gross, here) bowel movements. I'm a big guy, which means that such is often accompanied by a fair bit of gas--it's rather disconcerting to have someone present for that.
I dunno, the idea of being weirded out by unisex bathrooms just doesn't really occur to me. As a woman, I've seen plenty of other women bring their male children into the ladies' room. And you know who's weirded out? Not the kid. He doesn't care. He just needs to go potty.
dshajdhasjdaj Point is, I know why some people are bothered by the idea, but unisex bathrooms are generally something I support.
(I read Candi. It is very cute.)
I don't object to a young child being brought into a bathroom--that's the parent's call, really, as to whether or not the child is old enough (and the locale safe enough) for them go into a bathroom on their own.
Candi is adorable--mindstalk, you are aware that Starline did guest-art for a two-part storyline
of P&A, right?
