It's the same ridiculous Puritanical attitudes towards sex and gender that continue to damage this American society.

But a boy might hear me poop!

I think that's behind it, mainly. I know someone who was so poop-shy she once held it in for nearly 8 days during a summer camp. She only pooped once, and that was at night, and in the nearly-disused outhouse of the camping centre. Why? The indoor ones that were in the same building people slept in, and the chance someone might've woken up and caught her poopin' was too distressing.

We had to deal with this at the summer camp I volunteer at every year. I used to go as a young person too and one year we got sick and tired of all the younger girl holding their poo in so that other people wouldn't hear it. So we put a sign on the bathroom door encouraging people to break the Ta-poo (taboo about poo). It instructed people to start announcing when they were going to poo and encouraged them to debrief to the group afterwards, and also said that there was an official ban on people laughing/commenting on other people's pooing habits unless the person gave explicit permission. It worked like a charm - by the end of the week girls were running up and down the corridor going "I'm away for a poooooo!!" xD

Tiny kids tend to run around with their clothes off anyway, so if the other girls in the toilets did happen to see anything it probably wouldn't be anything new, and as Roisin said, it's kind of unlikely since there are cubicles, anyway.

Apparently they're phasing out gendered toilets at my old uni. Restroom segregation doesn't seem to have much to do with anything more than just plain old conservative habits.

There's a group or two who have been trying to get that done at the university I may go to. Or they were trying a couple of years ago, I don't know if they're actively trying right now. But they're being met with a fair share of opposition, so I kind of doubt it's going to happen... but it's cool that it's working over on your end of things.
The only problem I could ever see would be the urinals, and that's an obscenely easy problem to rectify.

My only problem with this is that bathrooms would become so much slower. I love urinals, they're so fast.

Women's bathrooms are already crazy slow anyway unless you hit them at the proper time (at least at my school)... so I wouldn't have a problem with it. And they could always have urinals in stalls or something for guys to use, which would still be fast and would avoid the hoards of slow women.

I find that if you avoid them at the turn of the hour (at least in uni) then you're golden.
You know how in gym class in school, the showers were all together but they had little partitions and they were at the end of the room? Perhaps they could do something similar with the urinals so that they're still there and still handy and private.

I think that would work pretty well. And it's not like girls aren't amazing at not looking at things they don't want to see - they do it all the time in locker rooms at the gym and such. So even if the privacy wasn't perfect, I doubt it would be a problem. But it's the idea of it people hate, no matter how logical a solution you can come up with.

I literally don't understand why they (I don't know who "they" are) waste so much space, besides anything else, with having segregated toilets. If you live with a father or brother or boyfriend, you're going to have integrated toilets and I don't know why it's such a big issue.

I would've already asked the store to turn over any surveillance video to the local police, so I could at least attempt to file assault charges on that fucking idiot.
