Not really, but that is funny! We have all come to realize, as long as we have lived on this earth, that if there is going to be a line outside of a single toilet restroom, it will most assuredly be outside the ladies room. It is quite odd to see a man leaving the ladies room than vice versa. It is what it is.

No one would want that disaster.
So, please be considerate and understanding ! Thanks!

No problems. I have seen in large restrooms all over where people have gone into either gender’s side when there were long lines. They could NOT wait. It was URGENT “or else.”
Understand? Please be considerate and compassionate.

������
To solve a problem it has to be defined. Why is it that there is a line for one restroom so the other restroom has to be used? Until you know the answer to this question, no solution can be had. In the meantime, obey the signs. They are there for a reason. The situation you describe is indeed very rare and we should not be changing the norms of society ...our many signs....based upon exceptional events. I am sure that if an urgent request was made, it would be honored by most if not all of the people involved.

Hate to answer a question with a question...... but if both were occupied what would you have done?

Also:
There is a big difference in having an "emergency situation" once in awhile and wanting the world to be "gender neutral" which is what I'm thinking is the agenda with some posters.

I thought I wrote a sensible and kind and open minded answer on here but it didn't stay. I am not for changing the signs. I will say again, changing the signs will not change people's ideas and thoughts.

You can't legislate kindness or acceptance and the ones who carry banners about bullying on this forum are often the most angry people looking to shout down others based on the others inferior assessment of the universe.

We cannot make people more sensitive by being harsh and mean. Most people are born with recognizable genitalia but many people have mannerisms and behavior that do not mesh with their equipment. No one likes to be looked down on. A lot of things dealt to us at birth are not a choice.

I don't think any of our very complicated problems about gender can be solved by changing the mens and ladies signs on bathrooms.
Oh. It didn't disappear. I get my feelings hurt too easily.

It sounds like your problem was handled properly. So why change the signs that most people, by their acceptance of signs on Restrooms for a hundred years, because you had to go one time in MacDonalds.

It is time to remove gender signs on single stall rest rooms with locks. It is absurd to have several people waiting in line for one rest room when the other is empty. This is the 21st century. Things change.

There are products on the market to handle such events for folks with conditions such as yours. Societal norms, like signs for example, are not changed because one person does not think they are appropriate.

I would have run outside in the bushes. Emergency! You do what you gotta do.
Look at NYC and SF and elsewhere: the streets are now public toilets.

There are NO products on the market that could handle such a HUGE elimination. You do NOT understand. Depends might help with urine. Not able to contain diarrheal feces.
People need to be informed and the ignorance about fecal incontinence must stop. Sorry to be so clinical but people need to know.
With single use RR , it should not matter.
Peace!
