    On Wednesday, November 12 at 1:30 PM, there will be a committee meeting at Cleveland City Hall to discuss an ordinance from Cleveland City Council members Joe Cimperman and Matt Zone to make all restrooms and showers in Cleveland open to both men and women. That includes businesses, under the “public accommodations” arm of non-discrimination law.

    Let me repeat: Cleveland City Council is considering a proposal to make all restrooms and showers, including those in businesses, open to all men and women. That would evidently apply to schools as well. Just think about that.

    The Cleveland proponents told reporters that similar measures have already been passed in many other cities, so it’s really no big deal. Where? Key West? Provincetown?

    About once a month I see articles just like this one plastered all over Drudge or similar web sites. Is the left really that loony? I'm even to suggest such a thing is beyond reason. But that is the left's agenda, to have 99.9% of the population cower to the other .1%.

    BIG deal.....

    Governor Moonbeam signed this into law two years ago, and the land of the rich liberals, fruits, nuts and frosty flakes have unisex bathrooms and rape and sex perverted acts like exposing oneself to little boys and girls is running rampid, but not in the MensWomens room. It is taking place on streets, in malls, and stores like WalMart. This is a horrendous law, and it started under the liberal left..... Figures :laugh:

    I've been in a number of places where there are unisex bathrooms. What you do is; wait your turn; go in; lock the door; go about your business; wash your hands; dry your hands; unlock the door; quietly leave and be careful not to step on the toes of the next person in line ... if there is a line.

    One aside, you lock the door if there is a door with a lock. Otherwise you close the door, or drop the curtain in place and follow the steps above.

    But I believe this will be for multi-seaters too, not just one seaters.

    I remember multi-seaters in the little houses out back when I was a kid. Oh, sorry, that's a different topic.

    Well, I guess we have to modify the rules. Go in the door, go in a stall and lock the stall.

    I realize this would bother lots of folk, especially we Americans. It would not bother me.

    I was in the Seattle airport one time years ago waiting for a friend to arrive from China. The plane was late, so I had a long wait. There was a large group of Vietnamese, I believe they were Mungs as the married women wore black turbans. Anyway, I decided to use the men's room. When I went into the men's room there was ten or so young Mung women there washing their babies and toddlers. I decided, "So what", and used the bathroom.

    While I was there several other men walked in, look around, shrugged the shoulders and went about their business. Very civilized I thought.

    OK, OK, I know, this would freak out a bunch of folk, but going to the bathroom is no closely guarded secret.

    P.S. I didn't have nerve enough to go into the women's room to see if there were mung men there.

    I am not arguing for or against unisex bathrooms. I am simply saying that, for me, it is not a big deal.

    Honestly, I don't want to go into a bathroom and have the risk that a man might be in there. I believe that there are some things you just don't mix and periods and urinals are two of them. ;)

    Oh thank goodness! I thought when you said "all sex" bathrooms in your thread title you meant you had to have sex, and only sex, if you used them.

    <Whew!>

    Oh and note it says showers too. That's an even bigger ball of wax!

    Agree, that is pushing it too far.

    I think a better option would be that one stall bathrooms should be unisex. I have often been in restaurants or other places with two bathrooms, one for men and one for women, one stall each. How often have I seen a line at the women's rest room and none at all at the men's and I have thought, should be unisex so the women's line would not be so long.

    Also if planners and architects were smart they would put twice as many facilities for women as men in any new building.

    When inside with the door locked there is privacy.

    Traveling outside the US, I've encountered plenty of these. I've never seen a "multi-seater" that hasn't been cordoned off by stalls.

    Usually the bathroom line forms up, you walk into the area and there are two rows, facing each other, of stalls that go from floor to ceiling. When one opens you walk in and take care of things and then leave.

    I've never seen an open multi-seater.

    I saw one at Amherst College. They're all "co-ed" bathrooms, multi seaters, with showers, and that was 20 years ago.

    I like this idea as well but then it takes up significantly more space than multi-seaters.

    In our town where we will be building out our new church in an existing warehouse, that is already pretty much the case. You need one stall per 2x number of women and x for the number of men (I can't remember the numbers but say it's one stall for every 15 women and 1 stall for every 30 men).
