All Female Theater in Japan has a 31.5 to 1 Female to Male Restroom Ratio

In the United States, it's common for lines at women's restrooms to be longer than those at men's. That won't be a problem at the Takarazuka Grand Theater in the city of Takarazuka, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan. For a century, this unique establishment has offered performances in which all roles are played by women. Rocket News 24 describes it as "a sort of reverse of kabuki's men-only policy." It's a theater tradition by and for women.

So the architects have sensibly made almost all of the toilet facilities for women. The opulent restrooms, which feature carved wood furniture and gold leaf furnishings, have 63 toilet stalls for women. The men get 2 toilets and 3 urinals.

I remember working for a highway gas station years ago. The guy who showed me how to clean the bathrooms, told me the women were waay worse than the men, figuring that they didn't clean up away from home. I wondered if it was because men just didn't bother washing their hands, etc...

Why...why do people keep putting urinals into bathrooms at all? We don't need urinals. Make every bathroom single occupancy lockable stalls (with no cracks people can peek through) and every bathroom can be unisex. That would save so much space, and it would end the LBGT debate over whether someone should be in one bathroom or the other depending on their sexual preference or claimed gender.

Also, considering some of the horror stories I've heard about women's public restrooms, like at airports and stadiums, unisex bathrooms might make women clean up after themselves a bit better. I can only imagine the nightmare scenario this place becomes with a 63 occupancy public restroom.
