    AFL fans are divided by gender fluid toilets introduced by Etihad Stadium for spectators during the annual Pride Game between St Kilda and Sydney.

    Three toilet blocks throughout the stadium were designated for all gender use, with signs posted around the ground and advertisements on the big screen letting patrons know that they can use whichever bathroom they identified with.

    The signs read, “Gender diversity is welcome here. Please use the restroom that best fits your gender identity or expression.”

    I'm not sure what the big deal is, nobody is forcing anyone to use it. If you don't want your Daughters in the same toilet as a man, then send them to the Ladies?

    Realistically this just means there is going to be a lot of women “identifying” as men to try and skip the lines at the ladies

    There will no doubt be perverts in the ladies under the guise of taking a slash.

    Unisex toilets are fine if they are built that way, whilst I have no real issue myself it’s a bit weird having urinals and women just strolling around.

    Schools are going to have rethink how they teach biology. It's not that difficult to figure out...

    Fine with unisex bathrooms, but calling them 'gender neutral' which is a myth, seems a bit silly.

    So long as they are ok with sharing a bathroom, I don't see the problem. If they don't wish to use it, then don't use it.

    Why would they go into the ladies? What is stopping them from doing it now. I don't understand your point here please clarify.

    And the blokes those who don’t wish to use gender fluid toilets do what exactly?

    Edit: never mind read an actual news story it’s only 3 toilet blocks, I read the picture and took it literally.

    So phase out the urinals and just have closed in cubicles with the toilet.

    Learn to put the seat up before taking a piss so the next patron doesn’t have to sit in your urine and all’s well.

    Not a difficult concept to grasp, though I agree that some animals still struggle with it.

    I agree totally that’s the very simple answer to this entire issue.
    Although I think it’s made to be a bigger issue than it actually is. We have a trans man at work he uses our toilet and nobody gives a shit. I work with a lot of older migrants many of whom are very religious.
    The only comment I have ever heard passed on the issue is that people wish he would use the urinal as everyone is just curious to see what it looks like lol.

    I'm species neutral so I'm just going to c**k my leg on the back of the seat in front of me

    I couldn’t give a shit if you proclaimed to be an asexual aardvark.

    But if you have a schlong, in the absence of a urinal, put the seat up to take a piss, alternatively sit down to do it and we’ll both get on fine.

    gender fluid is probably not the best term when describing a toilet

    One of the pubs I go to has a unisex toilet and it's no big deal.

    This is AFL grandstanding at it's best though.
