but if it was explicity gender neutral what is their problem??? (correction : just realise the word naked lol - depends on how naked - also dont see standalone urinals in these bathrooms - so why they are naked is confusing )

Confusing? It is most certainly common, when changing from street clothes to exercise clothes, to go through naked on the way. This is even more likely to be true if a shower is involved when changing back again.

Being gender neutral is all very fine in theory but not being single sex is most certainly an issue that causes disquiet.

If it is true then this is wrong. There should be single sex changing rooms. No-one should have to shower in a swimming costume.

The least 3 times I used the local swimming pool things have been taken from my locker I told the staff and just said theirs nothing they do thefts from the women changing rooms because they got no CCTV and there been a lot thefts. In unsex changing room men steal from you as well as women there never going get the thefts.

Presumably there are cubicles in the changing area and some (men) are choosing not to use them. Or ar choosing to go au naturel between the changing cubicles and the shower cubicles.

I’ve been in several mixed, sex communal changing rooms over the past few years and never seen any evidence of improper behaviour and as many naked women wandering around as men. However, this has always been in and around Northern Europe where people are clearly less prudish than the Brits.

Maybe they could introduce a separate area for the men to get changed to prevent this problem.

Why would you keep a unisex changing room in the first place?

The purpose is to allow changing while preserving safety, decency and modesty. Whether they are fit for that purpose is a different question.

Surely rhe system of having segregated changing rooms would fit that purpose better?

Gonna take a wild guess from the name changing room and say... To get changed in? As for being unisex, no reason they shouldn't be on offer, makes it a lot easier for single parents with a kid of a different sex to them not leaving them in a changing room on their own. Presumably there's still single sex facilities for those uncomfortable using them.

'She added that women were not "parading around naked" and that they "should not have to run the gauntlet of naked men" to reach the single-sex facilities that are accessed via the communal changing rooms.'

I'm not sure I agree with you regarding the single parent / kid comment. If a kid's anywhere from 1-9 and accompanies their parent to a single sex changing room, no one's going to complain over it.

Honestly that sounds like extreme hyperbole. There'll be naked people there, that's how changing works - unless you're quite talented, you'll briefly be in a state of undress, and I'd expect some to walk between a bench and a locker 5-10 yards away without covering, but parading around and a gauntlet makes it sound like there's loads walking round naked for extended periods of time, and life isn't a porn film - people don't do that, they use a changing room to get changed.

Well given family changing rooms have existed for ages, you'd probably be wrong - if there was no problem with a parent and a different sex child there would have been no need for them. But, let's go for another scenario then - adult who requires a carer but the carer is of a different sex?

But it was women who wanted these unisex bathrooms? Why do they campaign for this gender neutral bs if they're just going to complain about the thing that they brought into being in the first place???

What.
