Yes. I'm nonbinary and I take a gamble every time I go into a binary toilet.

I don't even want to use the same piss-stained toilet seats as my fellow men, half of the time, so why would I want to burden women with that?

I take it that you have never seen a womens toilet in a pub or bar?

I don't really give a **** (no pun intended), and certainly wouldn't mind if it were an option but I don't really think there's much need to create these spaces just for the sake of it. I think more people would be more comfortable keeping it as it is, rather than just having unisex toilets.
Being comfortable isn't an option for transgendered people. Do you really wish to make life harder for them?

On the other side of the argument, I can see that it could increase the rates of sexual harassment/abuse so it might not be a wholly plausible idea in our misogynistic society.

If someone is disgusting enough to want to sexually harass/abuse someone, I doubt a door with a sign of a little stick woman or man is going to stop them. So I don't think this is really an issue.

Ever heard of a cubicle?

Yep, but if we stick a sign of a little stickwoman wearing a skirt on the door the rapist will flee in utter terror!

I'm a guy, and I really don't want unisex toilets.

It might mean actually having to queue to go to the toilet!

I don't think you understand... I'm saying that if women and men shared the same toilets, it could end up with sexual harassment taking place. That's just how the world is. I agree, it's disgusting and barbaric but it is humans after all.

Did you really get "I want to make people's lives harder" from the tone of my post, or are you just being deliberately obtuse?

Why do you think sexual harrassment is any more likely in a unisex toilet than in a single-sex one?

No. I like the practicality of urinals.

Why is it female toilets are always near by but the male ones are like always up at least one flight of stairs? It's the matriarchy I tell you!

Why not? Issues of modesty don't cut it IMHO....

One major issue I can think of is molesting.....if men seek to grope women, or even vice versa, who can prevent them? Cameras in toilets is a no-no for obvious reasons....

In principle though, I don't see why not...

and piss-stained toilets....well this is why they have cleaners...

Most men and women are not gay.......and how often does sexual harassment happen now in single-sex toilets? Given how men AND women are, kind of figures some won't feel horny....and it can just as much be women on men too.

If someone is in the mood to sexually assault another person, do you think a stick figure on a door will stop them from going in there to find a victim?

I certainly don't see why not. If you can't handle someone of the opposite sex going to toilet in the same room as you then you should probably grow up.
I think its more the fact that men and women have anatomical differences that require different facilities. Not many women can piss in a urinal.

Because stairs, high heels, alcohol and needing a wee is not a pleasant combination

Or is it the patriarchy being patronising and dismissive by assuming poor widdle women can't manage a flight of stairs by themselves?

No, but all men can piss in a toilet.
