Poe, I can;t stand men's loos where there are urinals with nothing - or almost nothing - seperating the different parts. It seems really undignified. I pretty much always use the stalls too. On this topic, one thing I have noticed before in Britain, that is quite odd, is that cisgendered men who go to the "gents" and find the urinals are occupied will often instead use a stall, but with the door open. I am not sure if this is just because they can;t be bothered to close it or it is some sort of male ritual which implies they are not going in there because they are embarassed to use a urinal, but just becasue one wasn;t available. There must be something really manly about getting your private parts out in public. Maybe it is because if you "hide," it might be because you are embarassed someone might see your penis and think you are not well-enough endowed?
I also hate it when male changing rooms have communal showers.

Not long ago I was looking through my uni's by-laws (because of an alcoholic event I was organising) and I saw rulings against "being a man" and entering a "facility for women" and vice-versa. I'm not sure how they understand that. I definitely wouldn't say that an FTM is "being a woman" but would they?
