Have You Ever Been in a Loooong Line at a Public Restroom, and Considered ... Using the Men's Room?

Raise your hand if you've thought about it ... or done it! Recently, before I ran a 5-mile race, the line for the women's restroom was so long, I almost missed the beginning of it. I was tempted to use the guy's facilities, but the line started moving at the very last minute. If you've ever been frustrated that guys have it better than we do when it comes to bathrooms, you'll love this new proposed law ...

You could call it potty parity, because that's what a group behind a new proposed law is after. Guys can buzz in and pee in a long line of urinals--or urinal stations, whatever you call them (what do you call them?)--while gals have to wait in long lines for one, maybe two stalls. Fair? I say not!

Last week, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee held a hearing on the Restroom Gender Parity Act (H. R. 4869), sponsored by Chair Edolphus Towns (D-NY), that would require some new or renovated federal buildings to have adequate toilets for women.

Kind of an awesome idea, huh?

This makes me wonder: Have you ever snuck into the men's room when the women's restroom line was impossibly long?
