    How to indicate gender-neutral toilets? The official way, and
    something simpler.

    What was that saying? Something about how a genius is someone who comes up with ideas that make people go “Why didn’t I think of that”?

    What a genius idea.

    @ Brin : I think it was trying to mock how difficult everyone thinks it would be to design and indicate gender-neutral toilets. The simple and obvious solution, according to the writer, is instead to use the sigil for “toilet” on all bathrooms intended to hold one person, thus removing any gendering. Voila, instant gender-neutral toilets.

    Yeah, it does seem rather like it was supposed to be joking, but using a stylised toilet as the bathroom symbol is genuinely a good idea. (Or so it seems to me, anyway.)
