At some point, I expect all restrooms will be unisex, and people will wonder about what the fuss was, back in the 18th-21st centuries ;)

Well, back when "The Tunnel" bathrooms were unisex, I rather enjoyed whipping it out at the urinal in front of all the young ladies. Sadly, real life doesn't work like a nightclub. I'm not so sure I'd want my 11 year old daughter heading into the ladies' room where any Tom, Dick or Harry in a skirt has free reign. Then again, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't want anyone I know heading into an MTA bathroom under any circumstances. :p

Nidal: that's a meaningless argument.

Currently, there is exactly nothing stopping a violent sexual predator from walking into any public women's bathroom. None.

As for the 'fear that my daughter will get RAPED' argument, I could come back with an argument that works something like this: "If bathrooms were unisex, there would be men in the bathroom that would stop a predator like this from attacking my 11-year-old daughter"

Bathrooms are separate in our culture not because there's any logic or practical benefit to it. They are separate because that's the overwhelming weight of social gender norms and cultural tradition. The rest of it is just trying to justify the behavior, after the fact

The thing stopping the violent sexual predator from entering the women's room at the moment is the instant alarm of every woman who sees him immediately screaming at the top of her lungs that a man has entered the women's room.

The good men in the bathroom saving the little girls is a better argument. But they're not always around (in which case, the perp would walk out and come back another time).

Or take it a step further, and ask yourself why we separate bathrooms from the rest of the mall. Simply have stalls (airplane-style tiny rooms) that only fit a single person lining the hallways of whichever school/mall/train depot/etc. with their doorways in full public view. No need for a separate large central restroom with tinier stalls built into it.

But... if you go with the social norms eventually becoming obsolte approach, there's no reason we need stalls at all! In the future, we would simply defecate and urinate out in the pubic eye, much as we would sit in public and sip coffee. I mean hell, we all do it! (not the coffee thing, the other thing) I'm sure that would work out great in a crowded restaurant. :lol

I can think of about a dozen science fiction novels that depict that exact thing, Nidal.

Doesn't seem that outlandish to me.

The funny thing about the future is: it will count all of us out eventually. :lol

I would think the department of health would have something to say about that...
