Sonoma County Does Unisex Bathrooms
The Santa Rosa Press- Democrat reports that starting March 1, all public restrooms in the county must be open for use by both sexes. Setting aside the subject of whether government should be involved in bathroom use questions to begin with, I don't like it.
Call me a sissy, but I'm one of those what's known as pee- shy guys who doesn't like the distraction of another person around while I'm taking care of business. It's one thing to have a guy come into the bathroom to interrupt my moment. Another thing entirely to have some ugly old lady walk in and be able to stare at my weenie.
The Willits Burger King bathrooms have been unisex for a while and I don't like using them. The only upside I can think of is maybe it will reduce wait times having another bathroom available for all. The Willits Taco Bell, for instance, used to always have lines waiting for its bathrooms. I'd often just hold off, rather than submit myself to the pressure- no pun intended- of knowing there's a long line outside the door waiting for me to hurry up and be done with my business. Maybe this will help with that?
