Bathroom Police

To the man who just yelled at me for using the men's washroom: I admitted that I was in the wrong, apologized & you still chose to lecture me at length. "What if a man needed to use it for an emergency?" - the facilities are equal (single toilet with lock) & identical, there were no men present & the women's was occupied for an inordinate amount of time, do you expect me to stand waiting just in case a man shows up while my bladder is bursting & I can be in & out of there in about 3 minutes (I opened the door within about 30 seconds of your knocking)? Ok, "Everybody does it" is not a particularly good excuse on my part but your reaction was way out of proportion. Maybe you were just trying to impress your kids with your rant (they looked kind of uncomfortable). Maybe you were having a bad day? Your parting shot of "two rights don't make a wrong" didn't even make sense... —On the Gender Continuum
