    Guys, it's ok. We have a safe space

    haha youre like a bigoted angry little baby. Ben Shapiro without the kippah lol heres the minimum toilet numbers for the UK's Code of Practice under Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992. Regulation 20, Sanitary conveniences as you can see, the minimum number of cubicles does not double when genders are combined. not even close. here its a max 33% increase. heres a toilet calculator for building code compliance in New Zealand. the results for servicing 500 people in attendance at a grandstand Option 1 - Unisex Facilities 10 Disabled 2 Option 2 - Single Sex pans only Pans 5 Disabled 1 Basins 3 Pans 4 Disabled 1 Basins 3 Option 3 - Single sex with pans and urinal for males Pans 5 Disabled 1 Basins 3 Pans 2 Disabled 1 Urinals 3 Basins 3 as you can see, an increase from a combined total of 9 cubicles to 10 without urinals, or from 7 to 10 with urinals. a max 43% increase. you obviously need help understanding why the the above is the case. so consider this: if we say that X is the probability of any person needing a cubicle at any one time, then X is a fraction between 0 and 1. the chances of a second person needing a cubicle at exactly the same time is then X². as you may remember from high school mathematics, when you square a fraction you get a smaller result. and so it goes that for a given number of people the chances of them concurrently occupying all cubicles goes down exponentially with each additional cubicle. oh, plus the reality that men add proportionately less to demand because they have larger bladders and hence pee less often, wear less restrictive clothes and can clean up faster, and typically dont need to change tampons etc.

    - they save money. they free up area for other commercial purposes. fewer total cubicles also saves time and money on maintenance and cleaning. - they make it far easier for parents to accompany children of the opposite sex to the bathroom - more inclusive for trans people

    *sigh* in a nutshell: we need to build large capacity unisex public toasters. to feed the homeless.

    in terms of assessing the minimum footprint in m² of a unisex facility that could cope with demand, and whether or not that minimum would necessarily be bigger than a mens and women's toilet combined? their numbers would be a comparably negligible factor

    "people generally shit once a day, and if they can help it, they far prefer the privacy and comfort of their own throne" it would be an argument from privilege if i was saying something that warranted consideration of the homeless. instead, i was speaking generally about the toilet habits of people en masse, and how they impact on the total demand for cubicles in male toilets assuming urinals are present. generally speaking, people arent homeless. 99.5% in fact. hence, the homeless are small enough in number to have a negligible effect on that total demand. their existence, whilst lamentable, is nevertheless totally irrelevant to the point i was making.

    yep, guidelines. for building enclosed single toilets. ergo, irrelevant. and yes, and well done mate, you know how to shit in a public toilet without assistance from a grown up. newsflash! i use them too on occasion. doesnt change the fact that male cubicles are underutilised compared to women's because most people shit at home whenever possible, which for the majority of people, is the majority of the time. comparatively, they get limited use, predominantly for peeing by those whose first preference was the urinals which were occupado or too crowded. here's something that you may not have considered: theres economies of scale at play architecturally: a toaster that does 4 slices is not double the volume of one that does 2 compare the pair: Sunbeam Quantum Plus 2 Slice H x W x D 19 x 16.5 x 27 = 8,464.5 cm^3 Sunbeam Quantum Plus 4 Slice 19.5 x 17.0 x 38.5 = 12,762.75 cm^3 double the toast, but only 50% bigger how can it be! because 4 structural outer walls, not 8 because 1 power supply, not 2 because 1 circuit board, not 2 i know, i know...your tiny mind is blown

    hmm. and here i was thinking that when i said "i am not suggesting we should or could have them everywhere", and repeatedly "they wouldnt be appropriate or viable for every kind of venue and demographic" that no sane person would assume i was saying that unisex toilets would be viable and appropriate for the 0.5% of homeless in this country.

    theres economies of scale at play architecturally: a toaster that does 4 slices is not double the volume of one that does 2. what are those? guidelines for domestic shitters? as to the 1200mm length, that seems like a desirably luxurious size, but unless for some strange reason its the legal minimum for unisex bathrooms, your point is? ive used unisex facilities that had multiple cubicles with thin but dense floor to ceiling panelling between them, all within the same room. theres economies of scale at play architecturally: a toaster that does 4 slices is not double the volume of one that does 2. you, for instance, apparently strive to do most of your shitting verbally. its a truism that people generally shit once a day, and if they can help it, they far prefer the privacy and comfort of their own throne. you...you...actually...need this explained to you... theres economies of scale at play architecturally: a toaster that does 4 slices is not double the volume of one that does 2.

    1. it doesnt mean a thick load bearing wall. theres lots of options and materials. 2,3. most people try not to shit in public toilets. ergo, mens cubicles are often underutilised. also, men take less time to pee than women. 1,2,3. so no, it doesnt follow that you necessarily need more cubicles, nor that if you do you need more space. theres economies of scale at play architecturally: a toaster that does 4 slices is not double the volume of one that does 2. 1,2,3,4,5,6. as i said, they wouldnt be appropriate or viable for every kind of venue and demographic.

    yeah, multiple entry/exit points and doorless access to the outside is best. anyone worried about their safety is far less likely to feel cornered, and they know if they ever need to call out the sound will carry far. larger cubicles that make it a way more comfortable experience to get out of a large winter coat and hang it or set down belongings away from the shitter. and generous spacing between basins in the 'public' area of the bathroom. these are all possible with the real estate saved by amalgamating. but they wouldnt be appropriate or viable for every kind of venue and demographic though.

    never mind.

    hey, growl at me too if you like. but why not just acknowledge that the misinterpretation of Kimmo was all on you?

    What's on your mind?

    Kimmo: "To be pardoned by Trump" = quite obviously part satirical comment, part prediction. ^ which you most likely would have grasped the first time around if you werent foaming at the mouth and looking for fighting words under every damned rock ^^ which you definitely would have grasped in the wake of Kimmo's helpful clarification...without the rabies
