We've got an issue at church about some of the men using a drop-in on Mondays leaving a mess in the toilet. Their response was to put up a notice telling men to use the other toilets on the far side of the building. All very well, but it's the only disabled toilet in the building, and it would be grossly embarassing for any man to use a toilet with a notice asking men to go elsewhere!

I feel there are other solutions, and I think it'll get sorted out before long. But meanwhile, we had a meeting about it after church, and I got shouted at for saying they can't do anything which would effectively ban men from that toilet. That's democracy for you, it's messy and noisy, but everyone does get listened to, and we do get there in the end.
