No, making them unigender (with stalls) can be dangerous because rapists.

Has that really been a problem with places where unisex bathrooms are popular?

And how are segregated bathrooms any safer?

I'd be more sympathetic if people here didn't act like they knew what they were saying when they were saying something very much wrong.

Like this bit:

His proposed bill would require a birth certificate to prove which restroom a person would be required to use.

Guess he doesn't realize it is possible to change a birth certificate

They're not, which is why I like the single, stall-less bathroom idea even though I know it's impractical. I realize bathrooms do nothing for same-sex rape, but I don't know how prevalent that is because it's vastly under-reported.

I actually read it as he's trying to ban transgender people from ALL public restrooms.

If so, he deserves to have his ass welded shut.

My solution to this would be to make all restrooms unigender.  That means men AND women can go in either.

And also, remove urinals and replace them with actual toilets.

Or we could make urinals that have a seat, but don't use as much water and put a sign saying not to crap into it.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA....NO!

I believe if I was standing at a dressing room and my wife or one of my daughters was in the dressing room and a man tried to go in there — I don’t care if he thinks he’s a woman and tries on clothes with them in there — I’d just try to stomp a mudhole in him and then stomp him dry

Someone doesn't understand how dressing rooms work.

Don't elevate him to a douche.

One thing occurs to me in reading the comments here. It's true what they say about pols, and neocons in particular: If you want to know what the pols are up to, look at what they're accusing the other side of doing.

I just don't believe bathrooms are some kind of ideal rapist hunting ground. If they were, why wouldn't they happen more often? The only thing really stopping a man from going into a women's restroom is the stigma. They aren't locked, or anything.

Indeed. Someone with the audacity to rape someone in a public restroom would not be stopped just because a sign indicated that restroom was not meant for persons of the rapist’s sex.
