Yesterday on our way back from a vacation in New York, we stopped to get coffee and use the bathroom. There was a long line at the women’s room, and a much shorter line at the men’s restroom. These were both one-seat restrooms with locks on the door. A man in line for the men’s room gallantly suggested that Greta use the men’s toilet. By the time I had purchased our coffee, the situation had reversed and there was no line for the women’s room.
Would it be okay for me to use the women’s facility? Or would it be rude? After all, I might surprise a woman later on when I emerge. Is it okay for women to use the men’s room, but not the reverse? Should there even be separate restrooms for men and women?
And what type of person is more willing to use the opposite-gender’s restroom?
This week’s study should help us find out.
The study should take just a few minutes to complete. You have until Thursday, January 8 to participate. There is no limit on the number of respondents. Don’t forget to come back next week for the results!
