As someone who has eschewed the long lines in the Ladies and dashed into the Men's (with a lookout in place), I don't especially care about separate gender bathrooms.

However, I do wonder: are there urinals? Because I'd rather not see a stranger's willy. Also, men's bathrooms tend to be really gross (see above for how I know this). Will gender neutral bathrooms skew awful?

I'm sorry if this seems ignorant. I'm not sure where to ask.

I don't like them. And they usually smell like pee.

I don't think I would like them. I have a hard enough time using public restrooms with other females present. I couldn't imagine with males around. I hate public restrooms where you can see through the cracks in the stalls.
I would assume a bunch of stalls?

As far as men's bathrooms being gross, after years of working in bars, women's are way grosser then men's.

I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

No! Seriously? Even considering all the urine they leave around?

Women pee on the seats while squatting, try and and cover the seats with toilet paper, then squat and pee all over the paper and leave it, used hygiene products, water/soap/makeup/garbage all over the sinks.

Well that's because you're dealing with drunk women. Lol. In most offices and public buildings, men's restrooms tend to smell worse and are dirtier.

I don't want to go into the restroom and have a man in the next stall. I would end up holding it in until I could make it into a private restroom. Lol.

We have one at work. They put a vacant/in use sign on the door that you can flip when you go in. I rarely use it, it's kind of a hassle, and I'm always afraid one of the very few men will walk in anyway despite the sign. Luckily the women only bathroom is on my side of the office. I can't remember if there's urinals or not, I've only used it once when our bathroom was out of order.

My initial thought is ick, no thanks but then I realised we have such toilets at work. There are three lots of gender specific ones but up on the wards there are just "staff toilets" that we all use. They're rarely yucky, just annoying to find the seats left up sometimes!
Though these are just single toilets.

I think the OP was referring to multiple toilets in one co-ed, all gender restroom.

I'm really not too fond of the idea on a large, public restroom, level.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

Not a fan of sharing bathrooms with men. They just tend to be grosser than women in most instances.

Yeah, I just don't know.
I will have to say that is interesting meeting someone that has a 5-o'clock shadow, who I think is ok. However, then meeting someone who has amazing curls, better than mine! wearing cork wedges, and a purse with the name tag H.M. or whatever.
No problem with me. I just don't know what to do with that. He seemed very nice and wanted attention. However, one of the ladies I spoke with said, I don't know what to do.
It's not easy being a princess, but hey, if the crown fits.
