Only in the "Big Apple?" doesn't surprise me...

Wonder what LA will come up with ... 

Probably One will Stand and the other will Squat....  :~(

If they are single use.  Great idea.  Why wait when there is an open bathroom.

Or have stalls that are completely private...... meh.  I'm not too worried about who I wash my hands near.

(the signs are stupid, methinks they are trying way too hard to pat themselves on the back - in my house we just call it a "bathroom")

It's a private stall, very private, separated by concrete. Yeah, trying too hard, I dunno, just... restroom? Universal bathroom?

I would say that is a bathroom for men, women, and superheroes who wear capes. :-P

I have no issue with this. Most of this crap is just overblown politicizing of a non issue.

It's cute that some of the examples have a crapload of text on them so they can make a little speech.  (or it's sad - stop trying so hard) - it's a restroom.  Stop.  That does it fine. 

Post a picture of a toilet and no text and the message is even easier.

It's worse. Too much discussion creates a  problem where there wasn't one before. Obama did that with is stupid directive to all the schools. Don't ask don't tell makes the most sense.

DADT is a totalitarian authoritative conformist ideal. What speaks more of facsism than saying conform and shut up. 

No, DADT makes no sense in a free society.

I disagree with your characterization in this case. I don't see it as "conform and shut up" but rather as live and let live.

Isn't that just a "family restroom" or a just plain "restroom" then if it's the single stall with a door? That's what all the single stall bathrooms like that have been called in Colorado for as long as I can remember. It just seems like they're making bathrooms unnecessarily political in that case.

I agree here, who cares about other peoples lives. What they do in the privacy of their homes/stall is up to them not me. I can see why you believe so, but I think DADT isn't really an authoritarian or conformist idea but more of a 'lets not make an issue where there doesn't need to be one' type law @saevel25. I don't need to know what you're up to cause quite honestly, I couldn't care less what you're up to. You know?

Yup, our gas stations locally have two single stall bathrooms. Why does it have to be an issue?

We were just in Chicago at the Cadillac Theater.   They have gender neutral bathrooms but are single use.   The gender neutral didn't surprise me but single use in a theater did.

When I grew up the bathroom in our house was gender neutral. Sometimes my mom used it, and sometimes my brother, my dad and I used it. Just not at the same time. 

But seriously, some people really like watching others take a dump?

After a couple Johnnie Walker's at dinner in NYC last Summer, I stood in front of three doors marked "WC" for a good minute or two before a waitress asked me if I needed help.  "I..uhh...I don't know where to go."  Not my finest moment.

The hotel we stayed in also had community bathrooms in the hallways (not in the rooms), along with community showers...had to use our room keys to get in.  That was a prettayyy prettayyy new experience for this country bumpkin haha.

I dont think saevel fully described what he meant.  When the military had the DADT policy it meant that people overseas fighting and dying for our country could not insure that their spouses would get their benefits if they died.  Thats the conforming part.  If I cant tell you that Im in a gay marriage bc Ill be kicked out then I also cant die for my county knowing my spouse is taken care of.  

I.E. you only get those benefits if you act and do like us.  thats the conforming part.

    • I understand that.  But, if I’m striking the ball well one day, I tend to be striking the ball well for a time.  I’ll always take good ball striking over dumb luck, whether good or bad...
    • My golf season is starting in just under three weeks! What we’ll do is practice for a few weeks before our first match on March 2. Anytime we play, I’ll post about it here and on “What’d You Shoot Today?”. Also, if I have any crazy stories from practice, I’ll post those here as well. We do a lot of fun things at practice, from going out and playing a few holes to competitions on the practice green. Our favorite wager: pushups. I’ve got a few crazy stories from last year, so I can put those here too if you want! Definitely looking forward to the season. Just some info from last season: •My scoring average last season was something in the neighborhood of 48.5, with a low score of 45. Hoping to bring that average down to 45 this season. •We made it to regionals as a team last year as one of the top three teams in our conference. At regionals, we played okay, but came up well short, placing ninth out of 12. Top two teams go to state level, and top twelve individuals go to states as well, which leads me to my third point: •We had two of our team members (neither of which were me) go to states. And the final point: •I made a 10 on my last hole of the season. The last hole of regionals, with my family and just about the whole team watching. If you want to know the hole, look up Keith Hills Golf Club, Orange Course #9. Drive to the center of the fairway, then knocked one in the hazard. Dropped, then into the bunker. Took four to get out and onto the green, and then I two-putted. So, there you go. Looking forward to posting my performance this season!
    • We’re almost a month into this challenge, and it’s not looking good for me so far. Probably three or four rounds so far in 2020, two I remember at my home course. No birdies yet, and I’m probably not able to play until next weekend, for two reasons: 1) The course is probably going to be very wet both tomorrow and Sunday, because we just got a good amount of rain, and 2) School. Tomorrow and Sunday are gonna be practice days, probably an hour and a half to two hours each day. 
    • Here are two that didn’t actually happen to me. May have said these before. Both just happen to be in the same round: 1) We were standing on the second tee of a new course (to us), and after three of us hit, my brother was up. He took a hard practice swing with his driver and it flew out of his hands and landed probably 40 yards in front of him. My dad appeared very irritated, and because I was riding in the same cart as him, I had to try really hard to hold back a laugh. 2) On the 16th hole, my grandpa was the last one to tee off. I remember the hole as a long par 4, 495 from tips, probably 420 from whites. My grandpa said, “Maybe if I swing harder AND faster, I’ll get more distance.” So he swung harder and faster. He topped it badly, so badly in fact that it went between his legs and finished about 20 feet behind him. So many funny things were happening that day, and all the laughs I tried to hold in came out. Probably the hardest I’ve laughed in my entire life. And, to top his bad shot off, and making it even funnier, he yelled, “AAAAGGGGHHHH! DAGGUM IT!!” 
    • Well, I have still only played 3 rounds, and none of them have been on my home course. Hoping that a good weather weekend day will come soon so I can at least put something on the sheet.
