Just been watching BBC North West news, and a green haired swampy student claims that "women who believe they are men should be able to use the gents, and vice versa".

I thought students went to university to study!
However now at Manchester university the signs on the toilets have changed to "toilets with urinals" and "toilets without urinals".

PC madness gone mad!

Most toilets in China do not have urinals, only a hole in the ground.

The Davaar daughter attended a French lycee where this was the custom. I think Frau Davaar may have collected her at noon for a "home visit". The uproar from da Henglish parents led to separate "facilities". The French could never really understand the need, although for the sake of peace and desire for the fees they indulged the demand.

Of course at Versailles in the great days they solved the problem by not having any facilities at all.

.... and in the train from Guangdong to Hong Kong that hole is in the middle of an ocean of, ummm.

My bruv was telling me yesterday, that he met an old lady that grew up in his house. Georgian dry stone structure.

Out the back was the dunnie or is it dunny? and there were three seats side by side, with no dividers. No pipes, just a hole.

This state of affairs lasted until only 20 odd years ago.

Well French blokes just pee in the street don't they? ergo French ladies have the Bogs to themselves.

I find separate toilets to be hilarious!

Do you have them at home as well? Doubt it!

there were three seats side by side, with no dividers. No pipes, just a hole.About 1955, camping on a farm at Wells (Somerset) the facilities there were communal earth closets with smaller, lower seats for children. I don't believe that there was any other provision for the farm owners.

On a forest campsite near Sanguinet I had the dubious pleasure of holding a nervous conversation over four foot wall, standing face to face with a French lady who suddenly appeared in front of me.

On her side of the wall (inside) were the dishwashing facilities. On my side was the open air urinal. :uhoh:

Wish they'd stop fannying around. This idea will just get bogged down.

My sentiments exactly. That wooden floor has stood up extremely well.

Heard of one family that had this arrangement and the middle hole was an irregular shape - they had an eccentric Uncle.

Strange, that. I heard of one family who had a toilet cistern made from a twin choke Weber.

It was for their carb-uncle.

Speaking of strange toilet facilities,one looked after a cable laying gang once, such chaps were very fond of tea and carried all the equipment with them necessary to manufacture this beverage, met them on site one morning to find them all in a right rage,someone had took a poo in their kettle.:uhoh:

It is a reasonably well-known fact that the Romans used a piece of (natural) sponge attached to a stick as toilet 'paper'. This was rinsed in water between applications.

A lesser known fact (or PSOI) is that this is the origin of the phrase 'getting hold of the shitty end of the stick' . . .

... and of course to say that someone is a real "sponger" ... Ah, Just forget it.

Growing up on the Ranch we only had a "one-hole" wooden outhouse. Last years Sears, Roebuck catalog for toilet paper! Was separate "one-holers" (Boys and Girls each) at the Grade school. The horses we rode to school just crapped in the school yard corner where we tethered them. Me Granny had to teach me about "indoor" facilities when went to town and used the facility in the store.

I guess this gives a clue to the fact that I am older than dirt - eh? :p

A few years ago visited a well known restaurant on the slopes at Kitzbuel. the outhouse was through the barn and consisted of a seat with a hole. A brief glance showed one was standing over a drop of, maybe, a couple of hundred feet.

Draughty too, at minus 15C!

Unisex toilets? We can't take this sitting down! We have to stand up for our rights, otherwise we'll just end up in a pissing contest.

"But what about all the crude Graffiti on the walls"?
"Well the men will just have to get used to it"

Many a true word, Mr D.

When I worked in a local school, we had to do some work in the girls toilets during the holidays.

The graffiti was MUCH worse than in the boy's toilets.

Davaar -

Looks like you were going to get your wish, as I found this thread at the very bottom of page-1 ready to drop off to page-2 and sure oblivion.

Speaking of "unisex facilities" I have seen a few in public places here in the USA simply marked "FAMILY" . . . . :eek:
