No one is stopping women from using the mens room.. I really don't think men care

I've always thought that in bathrooms and sports and things there should be a female space and a unisex space. Men would have to use the unisex space, and women can choose either. That way, if a woman doesn't mind men in their bathroom then she can skip a long queue and use the unisex, but women's protections haven't been taken away. And there's a category in sports that can accommodate everyone, whilst maintaining fair competition for female athletes

Instead it's the other way around in a lot of places. I've been hearing that a lot of public facilities now have unisex and men's. Makes no sense whatsoever.

I don’t know. I know plenty of decent men who would be bothered or uncomfortable sharing their spaces with women/girls. Yes, women face higher risks in mixed sex spaces but I also agree with the argument that women’s spaces are for women so no justification is needed to keep them single sex (Even though there are many good reasons to). But I think men/boys should expect the same privacy in their spaces.

These people need to fight for third spaces or for establishments to add single use facilities for them. While having men in unisex spaces would be better than turning women’s spaces into unisex spaces due to the safety issues women face, I don’t think forcing men to make their spaces unisex is the answer either.

I agree that third spaces are ideal, but if for some reason there could only be two, I would hope that everyone could agree that women's only and unisex would be more of a necessity that men's only and unisex. I was shocked to learn that this isn't the case.

They're admitting women are not safe in men's spaces and not understanding the hypocrisy of allowing men into women's spaces.
