Urinal and toilet rooms
« on: February 10, 2019, 09:14:53 pm »
Perhaps the most practical is to have urinal rooms,obviously men only.and unisex toilet rooms.this would eliminate women having to go into a unisex room with men at urinals, and since toilets are eclosed and seperate little rooms each one,this solves the privacy issuesMen don't bother with toilets unless they have to defecate.Usually they use the urinals.This seems to me to be the best solution.

Interesting thought.  The urinal room should be considerably smaller though.

As a truck driver delivering to Target stores, in the storage/back areas (employees only), the newer stores have unisex restrooms. Most only have a toilet. A few also have a urinals. The common factor is one person at a time, lock the door when you enter, unlock as you leave. So there is no need to be concerned as to how you present vrs your physical parts.

In high usage locations, such as theaters, I like your idea of urinal rooms, and separate rooms with enclosed private toilets.

In Philadelphia, unisex restrooms have been gaining in popularity. All that I have see are just a bunch of single stall toilets, I have never seen urinals either in the open or in stalls and would probably turn around if I saw them in the open.

The point is to minimize the amount of space used for restrooms while having enough to keep lines and complaints to a minimum, so having a second room and infrastructure (plumbing, footprint, maintenance and cleaning) would seem to defeat the purpose of unisex restrooms.

The urinals could be eliminated to allow for a larger room with more stalls.

They can get more urinals in the same space another reason why men's room lines are short they have more places to pee.

I did see a lot of bathrooms in Belgium that are unisex and have a line of urinals along one wall and the other wall with stalls..  Neither guys nor girls did care, because either one knows pretty much how the other functions!

I see a problem in that men would then have a male only space, and women would always be sharing the restroom with men.  And women like to use the restroom as a private place to talk to other women, without men, so, I think women would be unhappy with this solution.

It seemed to work pretty well in Belgium, but they were all public bathrooms, and women in the US hardly use them for socializing!

I don't know why we can't have just one large room with private stalls and a common wash area.

They're 100% universal if you're adventurous and have low hygiene standards.

Then, you encounter "park bathrooms", in which the toilet stalls have no doors.  Most people avoid these, yet advocate for them when discussing transgender people using restrooms and want to catch them in the act.

I found it interesting this past weekend that there was a line for the "family restrooms" in which no gender was posted, but no line at all for the women's restroom at the mall.

There should not be any toilet stalls without doors. Also, I am uncomfortable using men's rooms with inadequate doors.  Should be able to use the women's room where that is not the case.

Because of the overspray? 
I have not seen a urinal for quite some time now, but I know that the toilet seats in bathrooms for females are not that great either.   After all, I caught a fungus infection there a few months ago, and now a UTI.  I need to learn how to properly hover when I have to use them!

Many many moons ago I had a job as a janitor for a major brand department store. Part of my job was cleaning the restrooms daily. I can say without a doubt that the women's were messier than the men's as a general rule.  In fact one day I walked in and was suddenly hit with a distinct odor. I found a pile of <not allowed> in the corner.

Oh #$#% This is how they did that in the US Navy at Great Lakes.  Sitting on the toilet with 20 other people trying not to look at each other.
