Now this is not the thread about being able to leave your class to use the bathroom as I believe that has been discussed ad nauseam in the past. I teach in a high school. I would estimate that our faculty is probably around 30-35% male and 65-70% female. There are only 4 faculty restrooms in the building (all spread apart) for 150-200 faculty members. In one of the faculty rooms, I constantly see women using the men's room because there always seems to be a wait for the women's room. One day, however, it was the opposite. I was waiting to use the men's room, but the women's room was free. A female colleague told me "why don't you just use the women's room instead of waiting, it's all the same..." I told her that was okay, I can wait, and pretended to play with my phone. I would have felt awkward/creepy using the women's room, but the women use the men's room constantly. I think it would be better to maybe just make both of the rooms unisex, but as is, I stick to the men's room. Is this an issue in your school? Are you comfortable going into the restroom of the opposite sex? I should clarify: The restrooms are each just for 1 person so it's not like you'd see a member of the opposite sex when you go in.
