The New Yorker warned about this aspect of Title IX last year:

Just a thought, if all restrooms were individual, allowing only one person at a time, we would have no problem.

Existing restrooms can have partitions for the toilet from floor to ceiling and be totally private, with a locking door. Sinks would be communal, but who cares about washing your hands in private. 

Again, just a thought.

That is totally true and would solve the problems... (honestly its not awkward using a gender neutral communal bathroom... you only have stalls, no urinals, and you all go about your business) the issue is that it would involve massive infrastructure change... something most companies won't pay for and something schools do not have enough money for....
While I love the idea of switching safer appearing communal bathroom spaces that are gender neutral, I don't see it happening in our current climate since it would involve a tax hike, or the need to federally allocate funds from defense to education (the main place where we could shave a few billion off and not feel it) as well as instate a penalty for those companies who do not comply. Plus someone would have to make sure these things happen.

I would be happy if it just became a general practice for new buildings to start with.... but it feels like dreaming....

(as someone who before knowing I was on the trans spectrum would use the mens restroom when dressed in my casual comfy clothes (with the short hair and passing) it isn't scary sharing a restroom with people who have different genitalia.)
