When you gotta go, you gotta go, but where? More and more public restrooms are unisex, or gender-neutral, meaning anyone can use them. Another term is “family” restrooms, even if it’s a one-holer. Signs used to designate these restrooms can take on a real flair, as shown here. See 17 creative restroom signs for a new generation at Buzzfeed.

I offer an enthusiastic yes to #2. I've managed to mostly avoid this problem so far. Probably in about 3-4 years or so, it won't be a problem at all.

The last time was in, of all places, a children's museum. I was astonished that it did not have a family restroom.

Just a few:

1. Long lines at big events for one sex while the other restroom is scarcely used.

2. Fathers with young daughters who need supervision going to potty. Or mothers with young sons, although that's usually not as problematic.

3. People who identify as something other than binary.
