I’d prefer a men’s room but eventually society will probably change. Doesn’t bother me either way really but I have a friend who was struggling with the issue of “what to do” with public bathrooms and her son, who is 6 now.
She’s concerned about all the horror stories that all mother’s hear about bathrooms, abductions, and other yucky scenarios. Of course they’re uncommon but they _can_ happen and I feel bad for her.
I mean, if she could just go in with him and just wait outside the stall, life would be simpler.
And really, she *can* – I’ve seen mothers/grandmothers do that – just walk right in and stand there. A couple of raised eyebrows, but nobody cared really. Mother’s gotta do what a mother’s gotta do, although seems most mothers just send their kids in – wait outside I guess. I dunno – never really paid much attention ’til she brought it up.
But having experienced it the other way, with non-gender bathroom, I didn’t notice any difference after a day or two of getting used to to it.
I don’t know how it would work in public bathroom situations but it seemed logical. I just felt bad for her.
