Mixed toilets are fine but cannot be the answer on their own simply because it is easier for men to toilet than women. 

Ive been in many situations where women's bathrooms have had a huge queue and the men's has not. This is a given due to the nature of urinals. 

I suspect there are many who think the solution would be for everybody to queue the same but I doubt it'd go down very well!

They just need to introduce gender neutral urinals and then women won't have to queue

The best bit of that article is that women on average flush the toilet 3 times per visit. 

It's a disgraceful waste of water by women and they should be called out for it!

Or do we only point out bad things groups do when white men are doing it?

No they're not fine.  Aside from the sense of discomfort of being around men who are strangers in those circumstances, men generally leave toilets in a mess and I don't see why women should have to put up with that.

The second bit is a bit.  But, the first part is fair.

Yes. Probably should have edited my quote.  

I’ve cleaned both ladies and gents toilets. Both have been left in states.

We have a unisex 2 stall loo at work.  We converted the ladies into a shower.  No one bats an eyelid.  

Good for them.

I bet the women would rather have women's loos though.

I did say 'generally'.

I work with over 90% women. 

The men's loos double up as disabled toilets. I'm sure if this situation was reversed in a company of 90% men it'd be cast iron proof of oppression and the equivocation of women as disabled. 

It doesn't bother me one jot because it makes perfect sense. The point is if you look for victimhood you can quite easily find it.

Are mixed sex hospital wards and toilets safer for females? Do women feel safer having them? Shared toilets etc do bother me, if my 9/11 yr  old are sharing toilets with 45yr old men I think the parents and the kids would feel uncomfortable

Women (generally) have always been uncomfortable with mixed sex wards and shared toilets.  Mixed sex wards are not supposed to operate now as the coalition government 'abolished' them (that is, they required that hospitals no longer operated them but I don't know whether this is checked).  Hospitals were given permission to operate mixed sex wards to alleviate the winter rush in January but hopefully single sex wards are back in operation now.

I agree with what you say about young girls sharing toilets with older men but it isn't just young girls who would be uncomfortable, older women are too.  Privacy is important, particularly for women.  Men do not appear to care as much although I am sure some men would prefer privacy too.

The comparison to hospitals was discussed earlier.  Clearly, a mixed ward is far from idea.

I suspect we have very different ideas of what we mean by mixed toilets.  My toilet at home is mixed, I certainly do not have one for men and one for women.  At the offices, we have toilets without segregation.  There is no issue of privacy.

All of these are entirely private.  The difference with cubicles and urinals sharing the same space.

The main argument is not that predators will be able to get in as much as a genuine feeling of discomfort.

I'm going to demonstrate this as classily as I can. 

You've had a bad curry and need to rush to the loo but are miles from home so go to your nearest public toilet. In your horror you notice that the bathroom is empty except for once person who happens to be a female Swedish supermodel. 

You try to hold on but can't and are forced to relieve yourself in the next cubicle. You sit there embarrassed and shamed and wait there until you hear the door go. 

As you emerge you find out that she hasn't left at all but is standing there with a friend. You promise to never toilet in public again. 

Is this a future we want for our children?

A future where Scandinavian Supermodels are comfortable socialising with their friends in Public Toilets?

When you say "standing there with a Friend" could you give more details on what they are doing? Is it a male friend or female friend or a non binary gender neutral friend? 

I find your whole post to be a bit friendophobic.
