A cranky opinion for
CRANKY OPINION SATURDAY
The following is the opinion of a
cranky old man, opposing opinions are welcome and may even make some
sense.As always, please, no name
calling, and that means you, you big stupid-head.
Last week on
a post about a concert I attended, I mentioned the men’s room was invaded by
ladies who did not want to wait in a long line.They used booths that were not being used.
people commented on this post that they believe we should have unisex
restrooms, not two gender specific restrooms.Now this would not really bother me that much, I don’t care if a lady
sees something, I don’t care if anyone hears my gossip, I don’t mind man stink,
I am used to stepping around men’s poor aim and men’s sloppy sinks don’t bother
me.So, fine by me, except why?
What would a
unisex restroom accomplish?
I can see
some disadvantages.First off it would
be expensive to convert from our current protocol.I suppose you could designate one area as
“Urinals” and one area as “booths.”That
would pretty much be the same as a men’s room and a ladies’ room except that
men would take a crap on the lady’s side.
women could take some pleasure in men standing in line to use vacant urinals,
but that would only make the line longer for everyone.Longer but equal wait.Why is that better?
Why do we
feel it is better to change simply for the sake of equality, when the result of
a well-intended change results in equal but worse.
about you, but my restrooms at home are off limits to everyone, even my wife when
I am an occupant.Why can’t we maintain
some semblance of gender separation?No
good can come of a unisex system.
How about making
the men’s rooms a little smaller…cut down on the booths, we seldom use them all
anyway.Make the ladies rooms larger and
add booths by making them smaller (are they the same size as in men’s rooms?I don’t know why, but they are way too large
in the man’s room.)
If you are
genetically male but identify as a female, use the ladies room, but don’t be
creepy.If you are genetically female
but identify as a male, you are welcome to the limited men’s room booths, but
don’t be creepy.I don’t know lady’s
room rules, but if you use a men’s room, we have rules.
2.No touching, not even an accidental
3.No talking to strangers
4.No being creepy Right or wrong, unisex restrooms would clearly upset about 75% or more of the people in this country. I don't see any benefit to upsetting so many people other than to prove some kind of really stupid point.
has any benefits to unisex restrooms that outweigh the sensibilities of a very
large portion of the population, I’d like to hear them.
The preceding was the opinion of a
cranky old man, and not necessarily that of management…Mrs. Cranky.
