Not even surprised or outraged anymore. We are becoming a nation of idiots.

It could cost U.S. employers between $2 billion and $4 billion to comply with an obscure Americans with Disabilities Act regulation meant to protect workers who are gun-shy in public restrooms.

According to (http://www.eeoc.gov/eeoc/foia/letters/2011/ada_definition_disability.html) an informal discussion letter the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission issued in August 2011, “paruresis” — more commonly known as “shy bladder syndrome” — qualifies as a disability under the amended Americans with Disabilities Act.

Well... we'll all just have to wait and see what comes out won't we?

There are so-called unisex "family restrooms" which are just large enough for a parent to bring in a stroller and a kid or two and take care of whatever needs to be done in secure privacy.
I don't see them everywhere, but my church has a few, and they are also suitable for the disabled.
It seems that anyone with a doctor's note might be welcome to use one of these, shut the door, and be alone for awhile.

Hopefully, a selfish employee would not abuse such privacy.:faint:

Also, a third restroom might be handy when the cleaning or maintenance staff needs access to one or the other, and for confused transgendered crossdressing democrats who don't know where to go.:toilet:

I have a "small one" so I just go to the sit down toilet and close the door. There I just saved the country a few pennies.

It's kinda funny. I have a shy bladder. But if I have to go bad enough, it doesn't matter. Besides, thats what stalls are for.

We're raising a bunch of whimps these days. When I was in school (o.k. it was a long time ago) every boy in school participated in P.E. and every one of those boys showered together. Bashful didn't fly in those days. Suck it up Frances.

Words never to be uttered in a bathroom full of naked boys.

Does the person who signed this proclamation have a name or are they another nameless and faceless bureaucrat that is immune from accountability to the people he/she supposedly serves?

I memorize the locations of those in the airports I frequent. So choice. :cool:

Never thought I would feel this way but I guess it is time for a revolution.
