Yes. There was a mechanical engineer at one place I worked and I wasn't
certain whether he/she was male or female. I thought that I'd be fine
once I knew their name - until someone introduced them as Lesley/Leslie!
There was a reality show about sexuality on Channel 4 last night. Some
bird saying she identified as both male and female, and she didn't know
which toilet to use. This was in a pub, so obviously she wanted the
female toilet. Men's toilets are always gross in a pub. I'd use the
female toilet in a pub, if I thought I could get away with it.
It’s about time toilets were all rebuilt and re-signed as just “sitters”
and “standers”. The former would have standard loos, the latter urinals.
Folk should be free to use whichever is appropriate to their needs.

The male/female doors signs also have what looks like brail beneath them to
Is that really of any use.
And the PIR triggered lights are left on all day and truned off in the even
ings so you enter the toilets in darkness as you open the door.
I think they're taking-the-piss :-D
What makes you think that drunken woman leave a toilet any cleaner than
drunken men,often they are dirtier.
Bad aim at a urinal may make the surround a mess but generally the urinal
can still be used by those following,
The pans in a womans get blocked with paper ,sanitary products and
underwear and then that gets shatt on.
The pan now is now blocked so the next visitor pulls the flush and the pan
Our daughter has spent much of her working life (so far) in a
traditionally male dominated role and is also often wearing PPE,
including helmet / visor etc. This could partly be down to the fact we
brought her up to be a person, not a male or female particularly (she
was just as happy ballroom dancing as helping me in the workshop or on
a car / bike etc).
She has been referred to as 'mate' (assuming she's a he) and many
other male orientated names whilst working and just thinks it's
perfectly reasonable / acceptable (given the above).
She's even had it when not wearing the PPE but when wearing the
uniform and working alongside 'fellas', especially when she's wearing
her hair short (or even when long but in a pony tail as many fellas
have the same).
In fact I think she would more likely to be offended if someone was to
call her 'darlin', especially in a way that could be considered
patronising as that would be knowingly reacting to her as a female.
My first girlfriend (a slim, long haired motorcyclist) had her bike
break down in the winter and (long - short) had another 'biker' stop
and pi$$ over her carbs to get her going. As she kept her helmet on
... he left with the 'now you know what to do next time' ... ;-)
I wonder if such a good Samaritan would be done for exposure or some
other offence (urinating in a public place (lay-by)) 'these days'? ;-(

Apparently it has a pull back skin, and you get the one you ordered plus a
free smaller version.
And I'm not asking him any Qs he's told me more than I was expecting or wan
ted to know.
Driving back from Warrington the other day and I pulled over on the A628
just before you enter the Barnsley border so my work mate could have a
piss in the lay-by. A female motorist pulled up just after he finished
and asked if she could have a piss behind my van as it gave better
coverage from passing traffic than her Mini. We had to stand at the edge
of the lay-by and talk about the weather whilst she had a piss:-)
And why not. I'm guessing that 'most people' have to take a leak,
'most people' will get caught out at some time or another and most
people have been with other people, including the opposite gender
whilst they have taken a leak at some time in their lives?
So, as long as they are doing so subtly because they are 'in need' and
not off a bridge onto pedestrians for fun, I really can't see the
issue (as long as it's not up against someone's house or where the
rain won't wash it away or were people are regularly walking etc).
I got caught short on the way home on the train one night (someone's
leaving do) and the pain in my kidneys got so bad I felt I was going
to pass out. I couldn't take it any longer so I staggered off the
train and asked the driver if the train had a toilet and he said it
However, once he learned it was just for a leak he shut all the train
doors and told me to nip down the ramp at the end of the platform and
'be quick' (not that you can make such things 'quick' as such).
He then let me into the cab and off we when with me sitting on a
little fold down seat while my kidneys recovered. ;-)
