Urinals or no urinals? That is the question.
'De-gendered' toilets spark row says the BBC. There were similarly strange headlines in the Metro this morning. What has the world come to?

Transsexual and transgender students have allegedly complained that they uncomfortable using the men’s toilets... although the student union wouldn't say how many complaints they had received.

Strangely enough the complaints of the women who don't want people with penises (peni?) in their toilets (even if said people identify more with the female gender) have been ignored.

Minority interests have become so powerful they abuse the system. Should the majority have to bend over backwards for the few?

Perhaps I should try and use this to my advantage! As a childless person (and as a person who doesn't want children which surely must put me in a minority) can I make demands that I need child free zones? Perhaps the local cinema should make one of its screens for adults only. I want a carriage on the train for over 21s. I want to be able to book a seat on a child free plane.

I feel uncomfortable in the presence of children (actually it's more like I feel the need to throttle the little bastards) so having no children free zones in an infringement on my choice to lead a child free life?

I love the vote on lowering the quorum story - that's really tickled me!

I agree 100% on the need for child-free zones. Restaurants, planes, and even apartment buildings need to cater to people who don't like destructive and screaming germ-catchers. I am in the minority that I don't find every precious snowflake on this planet a perfect miracle.

I can rant and rave about this all day, but I would like to state that if I'm paying more than twenty dollars for a meal in a restaurant, I don't want it ruined by the spoiled brat at the next table. I don't find that adorable at all.

Oh, and I would scream if I saw a man-lady come into a woman's bathroom. Scream, I tell you.

Ahhhhh... but it wouldn't BE a woman's bathroom - that is the beauty of the de-gendering! It would be a bathroom sans urinals! ;)
