She's lucky he doesn't have to register as a sex offender. (said slightly in jest) In some states, a public urination offense will land you on their sex offender registry.

I bet people don't get upset when they see neighbors allow their dogs to take a leak in their yard. And before anyone says it, I know that dogs can't be taken to the restroom to do their business but they aren't exactly doing all their business in their owner's homes now are they?



And I can tell you that even when owners pick up after dog sh** that the area it was in stinks. Still, people don't make a big deal about this but are making a big deal about a 3 year old who couldn't hold it. Before anyone says anything about defecating, I don't think she would have allowed her child to do that in the parking lot.
If you want people to treat you like am animal instead of a human being, then go ahead and start peeing and pooping out in public.

People really do need to question sh** like this. That is absolute madness. I do wonder if people from other countries laugh at us. It tends to stem from this high morality ground, which often comes from religion. It's pretty disgusting to be honest. Nudity (in this case urinating) does NOT equal sex and this country makes anything nudity related sexual, which is a HUGE mistake.

Had she let her child urinate in the car and the police saw, she'd probably have been given a ticket for that too. There are worse things happening in our society. What she did wasn't right but if it's something she rarely does, then I don't see the need for all this.
I've never once been to a gas station that required keys for the bathroom. I doubt this woman happened to stop at 9ne of the few that lock up their restrooms. I've also never waited in line at a gas station bathroom. Most have multiple stalls, and their aren't 20 people all stopping at once to use the restroom.

It is humans are treating other humans as less than animal. Where's the empathy in this thread?

I would rather my children not see a random man's penis while we are stopping to get drinks at the gas station, so I for one am glad there is such a law to persuade men to use public restrooms instead of whipping their penis out whenever they have the slightest urge to pee.

It has nothing to do with religion or morals. Some things should be kept private.

Lucky you. I really mean that. I have been to MANY that require a key and sometimes you have to go back outside to access the restroom.



I've had to wait because of people like the ones on this thread. If I were to go to the front of the line just to ask for the keys to the restroom, I would get looks and maybe even be threatened and so I find myself waiting in line and struggling to keep it in. By the time I reach the front, someone may be using the restroom and I have to wait until the person brings back the key.



You've obviously lucked out but I can tell you that it's when you really have to go that these things tend to happen.

Most men would run off to the bushes where they can't be seen (if and only if the restroom is occupied). This would be in the case of an emergency and not "whenever they have the slightest urge to pee."

I don't agree with this... in that they are not the same. It's one thing to urinate on public grounds (which is illegal, but shouldn't necessarily be a sex offense)... and it's another to do it in a location where people could possibly see your (or your child's) body or in the act of urinating. The latter being of extreme offense.

No, she let him pee in the parking lot because she thought he wouldn't make it into the restroom and even if they did and it is a one person toilet and it was occupied he would then pee on the floor. You and I can hold it even if desperate, however a 3 year old can't. I am sure she flipped out when confronted which probably didn't help things.
