It could.. if we draw some legs underneath the things.. closest match would be the left door for you then.. for me too, just my cemetery is a little lower than yours *giggle*

That is funny. When I was in Flanders it was not a problem. Unisex bathrooms were common in the 90's. Being unaware of this, the first time a lady walked in while I was, well you know, I panicked.

I would assume door left was a skirt and door right was suggesting muscular shoulders, based upon the symbols I am familiar with.

People Downunder are still a bit anxious about non-binary gender allocation, although single cubicle unisex toilets are common in public locations, perhaps maximising availability and replacing the traditional male/female toilet block of old.

A male entering the wrong shared facility would be considered suspicious and nefarious in somewhere like a shopping complex or sporting facility, which is quite a cultural distance from some European customs and attitudes.

At least the one advantage I had was that whichever door I picked, there was one toilet right behind it, so not an entire area with several.

I don't think the toilet would mind which bum sat down on it *chuckle*

Heh yeah.


Mind.. this picture wasn't posted to jump start a discussion on what gender goes where and if that mattered.

It was more.. "what the hell does this mean, which is ladies and which is gents?"

I was seriously confused lol

I know. I kind of veered toward that. It has not degenerated to opinions on that topic but if it it does the lock will be applied.
