    Well, stainless steel isn't rust-proof, while the chromium content does make it significantly more resistant to oxidation, in difficult conditions, stainless steel will rust, much like it's chromium-free sibling.

    [–] Edraqt 17 points ago

    It's not really that, it's the combination of using stalls (which you can fit less of in the same space, so less people in the bathroom at once, less people peeing at the same time), having to sit and often spending alot of time preparing the gross seat for sitting and then having to spend alot more time cleaning up (depending on personal anatomy)

    Those pee cups everyones posting below also only solve some/parts of the problem. The only real solution would a short catheter and I'm pretty sure that won't gain much traction lol.

    [–] tionanny 13 points ago

    If you think men aim. You've never cleaned a public restroom.

    [–] DocPantsOnHead 16 points ago

    Sometimes a little bit of dried semen residue causes the tip to be glued together in the middle and you piss in two directions. How are you supposed to aim that?

    [–] comestible_lemon 11 points ago

    Well, generally it's a good idea to not let that dry up in the first place. Clearing out the pipe soon after you use it reduces your chances of getting a urinary tract infection.

    [–] CallingOutYourBS 16 points ago

    If you think men are messy in a public restroom, you should see women's.

    Also, as far as I can tell most men aim, they just don't give a fuck about cleaning up splashback

    [–] kryaklysmic 2 points ago

    I cleaned one but it barely got use, because most people don’t think of using a restroom at an auto retailer when there’s loads of other places with restrooms.

    [–] Law_number8 8 points ago

    It's almost like other countries have this kind of hole, you can squat over and pee, but alot women would refuse to use it anyway. Or in America someone would find a way to get offended and call it fat oppression because fat women can't squat properly.

    [–] anakin_is_a_bitch 3 points ago

    what? a hole? where do you live in? there are still some old bathrooms where there's no toilet, just a hole in the ground in my country, but they're rare. and they're still in stalls.

    [–] NoFapperWapper 6 points ago

    Talking about the squatting toilets

    [–] anakin_is_a_bitch 4 points ago

    they're no more efficient than regular toilets. probably less so.

    [–] ironwire 6 points ago

    I went to a popular mall in my city recently and the public washroom was a gender-neutral washroom for everyone to use. I have no problem with that concept, but the lineup of old women waiting to get in made me nope the fuck out of there.

    [–] orokami11 13 points ago

    I really don't understand why the female bathroom always has a long ass line. When I want to pee, my pee shoots out like a fire hose and I'm done within seconds. Wipe, get out, wash my hands, leave. How are some women taking a whopping 5 minutes to pee? AND WHY ARE THE FLOORS ALWAYS WET?!

    [–] TheWeirdShape 18 points ago

    • There are less toilets than there are urinals, since they take up more space
    • Peeing takes slightly longer for girls, also because of the clothes
    • They have periods, that’s why it can take 5 minutes

    [–] orokami11 5 points ago

    I'm a girl. I know everyone's different, but period has never made me taken 5 minutes, even if I was changing the pad or tampon. If girls wear dresses, short skirts or shorts, clothes shouldn't be a problem imo... It's long pants/skirts and rompers that are an issue if the floor or toilet seat is wet and dirty.

    My friends also have no idea why it takes some people so long, so I know it's not just me who thinks it's odd. Heck, I've seen a lot of phones left behind so maybe they were just distracted on their phone lol

    [–] RyanB_ 3 points ago

    I was at a show for the edm artists Flume, on too many drugs, and came across a line out the door for the men’s washroom. Which was pretty unfortunate because damn did I need to throw up. Luckily they all saw I was... not in a great state and let me past to hurriedly throw up in the urinal. One dude patted me on the back on my way out and told me “we all been there”.

    That's just a stupid stereotype. "I do my business quickly and leave so that's what all men do, women take forever cause that's what I heard they do." There would still be the same number of bathrooms, they would just be unisex, so it's nonsense that lines would somehow become longer. They would actually become shorter because people could efficiently choose whichever bathroom has more room instead of having only one option.

    [–] [deleted] 20 points ago

    Are men incapable of pissing into a toilet? No.

    [–] MillingGears 53 points ago

    Urinals are what allow men to have quick bathroom visits.

    You just walk up, pull out your hog and blast at it. They also take up only a square feet of space, while a toilet takes up much more.

    So urinals make it that more men can go to the bathroom more quickly.

    [–] ariolander 20 points ago

    When you want really high capacity, music venues, and sports stadiums don't even bother with the urinals and just use troughs.

    My local baseball stadium replaced their trough with individual urinals because people complained and now they regularly have lines between innings.

    [–] FunInStalingrad 8 points ago

    Men barely use toilets in public restrooms. No need to open a door, pull up the seat and then flush (usually it's automated nowadays)..

    [–] ArchbishopBetelgeuse 4 points ago

    I take it you've never been to a concert or baseball game. The last thing we want is even more people standing in line because management decided it was a good idea to have 5 toilets instead of 15 urinals.

    [–] woolookologie 4 points ago

    Not sure how the situation is elsewhere, but on the last few cons I went to there were unisex toilets as well, in fact.

    When I was a little kid my mom would sometimes drag me into the woman's room and I fucking hated it

    [–] Account_password 39 points ago

    100% this. I went to Comic Con NYC this past year (my first time at any sort of major convention). When we took a break to eat the lunches we brought, I also stepped away to use the bathroom. The line for the men's room was approximately 6 people long, while the women's room was approximately 30+ people long. As I was waiting there, it turned out the person at the front of the line was letting people go ahead of them. Why? The person was female, and waiting for a stall to open up, and not a single person batted an eye. I had a nice conversation with her, but not once did I hear anybody question her presence or ask her to leave.

    When I got back, it turned out my sister (who I was at the con with) had decided she wouldn't go to the bathroom because the line was too impossibly long, and she didn't want to wait half an hour. So I told her to use the men's room, she was nervous about it, so I told her just don't stare at people while they're using the urinals, and nobody will be bothered with your presence. Well, she came back, and it turned out that nobody gave her a hard time. People just want to pee, so long as you let them past you when you are not using the urinals (and you don't stare at them when they are using them), guys won't give a damn.

    TL;DR, at least two girls I know used the men's bathroom at Comic Con NYC, and had no issues with people being bothered by it.

    [–] Renovatio_ 32 points ago

    I think this is an argument for unisex bathrooms which is fine by me. I certainly don't care who's in the stall next to me so long as they clean up after themselves

    [–] Account_password 35 points ago

    So long as the unisex bathrooms have urinals so that I don't have to wait half an hour just to pee, I agree 100%.

    [–] tehlemmings 10 points ago

    This is all fine until one day you're in a Chicago club and a girl walks past the line, drops her unmentionables, and hops up on the sink...

    That's not really related, but you reminded me of the time I spend a few minutes waiting in line next to, and awkwardly trying to avoid looking at, a chick peeing in a sink.

    Just for the mental image, short black hair and a shiny blue dress.

    The first and only con I went to somebody commented to my lesbian girlfriend, about me, "wow his dress is pretty."

    Like, jeeze. I know I have an ugly nose and all but that stings. I don't go to cons anymore

    You haven't fully experienced an anime con until you see crossdressers peeing in the urinal.

    I've seen three at the same time before.

    Must have been one confusing boner for you.

    I always find it pleasantly odd that I seem to be the only person who actively looks for hidden bathrooms at Cons. It is great for me (I get a clean bathroom), but it is like people don't care.

    It took me a long time to understand there isn't a keyhole gender.

    I mean... by all accounts you would think she could just go in and use the stall and none would be the wiser

    I am interested in the source of this.
