    Impractical... In rush hour, if you see a gap you go for it... If denied entry on gender, id be pretty annoyed.

    Also, if a woman is so concerned about squeezing in with men or women, GROW UP!
    You clearly haven't been sexually harrassed or assaulted then mate.
    This isn't a question of women being too dainty to crush in with everyone else, it's a question of crowded public transport being prime pervert hunting grounds.

    I'm a feminist but the need for a women's coach is completely unnecessary. I see why people would want one to protect women but it seems very segregated, if anything we need more workers and cameras on the tube to keep an eye for any harassment.

    Of course not.

    Should London Underground implement a men's only coach?

    So men won't feel uncomfortable especially during peak hour where everyone squeezes against each other.
    Amen to that!

    There used to be 'Ladies Only' coaches on British Rail trains until they were withdrawn in 1977 mainly because of contravening gender specific legislation and the introduction of new rolling stock.

    It could be argued that women-only coaches makes them easy targets for people with the intent of crime especially at off-peak times and long stretches of track between stations.

    It's also not an efficient use of space on an already over-crowded transport system - expect to pay handsomely if the privilege (dream on) is ever extended.

    What more can you do in

    the underground? CCTV is everywhere, procedures designed to stop terrorists. I have confidence that if I ever am put in this situation, those held responsible will be brought to justice. Its a problem created by a minority lets not forget

    Yeah, no. I am a CHILD - a MINOR - and have been groped multiple times, to the point where I've fled the Tube in tears. If I was offered the chance to have a carriage without any men, I'd gladly take it, as I don't feel comfortable around them.

    Flatly, if the 'mixed sex' coach was full, and there was more room in the womens coach, it'd take a damn site more than some jumped up feminists screeching about a safe space and groping to get me to miss that train.

    Why don't people stop groping each other on trains and feeling like they're allowed to touch people inappropriately rather than shoving women onto a train carriage.

    Well if you're a minor and dont feel comfortable around the public on public transport, take an adult with you. Your fears and issues with the public aren't that of the rest of societies, and you shouldn't impose on the rest of London because of your bad experiences.

    Treat women as if they're delicate wall flowers? **** no, how sexist.

    Just because I'm a man, it doesn't mean that I enjoy someone's (hopefully) flaccid c*ck rubbing-up against my leg.

    I could change that attitude of yours after a few rounds on the circle line.

    I don't like the feeling of going around in circles with you; do you love me or not?! :ashamed2:

    Hehe.

    If you don't feel comfortable around men, then you probably shouldn't go out into public.

    That would be ideal, wouldn't it? Sadly it seems easier said than done.

    Exactly :facepalm2: "Oh, so I'm just going to take a train car just for me like I'm being quarantined whilst women still continue to get groped because a train car just for me is actually stupid if you think about it. Like we can't all fit in here and even if we could we haven't actually confronted the crime of sexual assault, now have we? But eh. I like that they painted it pink so I'll do it for the Vine."
