In a world where we acknowledge that gender is not binary and sexual preference doesn't care about your physical attributes, we must start to move towards a more sane system. This is the start of that system.
It is laughable that we've split men and women into open-plan facilites where you have to strut around naked in front of everybody, and it's OK to ogle someone as long as they share the same genitals as you. And now we get the inevitable problems because someone with different genitals wishes they had your genitals and now you need to either x-ray everyone before they enter a bathroom or basically allow a free-for-all....
It's just stupid, STUPID tradition that is blinding everyone to the fact that this could all be solved very easily and simply: Take the floorspace that 2 different bathrooms take up, knock that dividing wall out, and consolidate it into one huge one: Then have closed showers and properly closed toilet stalls (fucking CRAZY I know) where people can have their shit/shower with some actual privacy and can get dressed while they're at it without getting ogled by anyone at all.
I'm well aware that some older "gentlemen" would quite prefer to brush their teeth with their balls hanging out, but quite frankly I think we can all do with a lot less of that kinda thing. Hell, maybe I'll be able to attend a gym again one day without needing to pack my eye-bleech.
