Unisex bogs in a school

#1
Having recently been in to a new build school, I noticed that the toilets were 'semi-mixed'. ie the sinks were unisex, but the toilets themselves were seperated, oddly glass doors to enter, but the lads had no urinals just 'sit downs' in floor to ceiling cubicles (obviously with wooden doors)... I'll assume the girls side had a similar arrangment.

Not bad, thought I. And I suppose it cuts down on the need for 'adults' and 'children' bogs, on the grounds that when you mould clay or syphon the python, you are in your own little turdis. Although I don't know if when the kdis are in the toilets are segregated that way.

This schools goes one further with.... unisex bogs. So is there a problem?

I don't really see a problem, in fact it may well cut down on bullying (girls bogs can be a have for teh bitchy insult) so thoughts?

Would you feel uncomfortable in a unisex environment letting weapons grade farts go as you crimped off a length? Would women feel upset whilst doing their 'lady things'?

As this isn't the NAAFI, a sensible comment.

Because it seems that none of you have daughters or are female.

It's a terrible idea. Every teenager girl gets it wrong from time to time during a period and floods her skirt. You need to do a clean up somehow, over the sink. This is hideously embarrassing, even in the comparatively synpathetic environment of all female bogs. It woul be beyond mortifying if boys were around.

Of course "wimmin" see that as an advantage - menstruation should be celebrated and normalised, and should not be hidden from men.

"synpathetic environment of all female bogs?"

Something a bit like this you mean?

Wish our college did this. Saying that, the gym I train at is a 'community' sort of place and there appears to only be the one bogs - 2 urinals next to a walled-off cubicle. Even if there is a female toilet, it's so difficult to find that nobody looks for it. You can regularly be hosing down the urinal as a girl casually walks past as if she didn't notice you stood there
