Either or...

If you let her go into the women's bathroom, stand by the door and don't take your eyes off of it for a moment.
------------------------------------------

If you are more comfortable taking her into a men's bathroom, it would be okay as long as no one is at a urinal.

You'd have to stop any other men from using the urinals (by explaining about your daughter being in a stall), or she might get an eyeful seeing a man peeing at a urinal. If another guy REALLY has to pee, politely ask him to use a stall.

What?

Unless she is in special education, teachers in public schools (at least in my area) are not allowed to "help" a student in the bathroom. No pulling down their pants, no wiping their bottom after a BM, no assisting in changing their clothes if they have a bathroom accident, etc. Not even the four year old children in Junior Kindergarten. Parents, please teach your child independence in the bathroom at home so that they can be successful at school.

Really?
Now that we are mandated to have "Him" "Hers" and " I have no clue which gender I identify with" ..I find it remarkable that family bathrooms aren't more readily available.

Most public places have separate Handicap bathrooms. Of which either and all ages are welcome to use IF its not first being occupied by an actual person of disability. Yes I said two words that are taboo. Handicap and disability. Deal with it. Webster has it still listed and its definition is not offensive!

OP: this is the first in six years you are questioning this? My son has two daughters and he has zero problems asking a customer service rep at department stores to find assistance for his little ones .

SIGH.
Go ahead and send your 6-year-old daughter alone into the same bathroom as a biological male who is attracted to females, if you like.

I'm glad people who identify as whatever can do whatever they like. Great. When my son/daughter is older they can pick their gender and orientation. Wonderful.

Meanwhile, while they are a child, I'll escort them at public bathrooms, because the little circles and triangles on the doors are meaningless.

People shooting up? What types of bathrooms do you hang out in? Can't say I've ever see anything but people going in, getting their business done, and getting out.
Beach bathrooms. Park bathrooms. Library bathrooms. I don't hang out in them, but vagrant junkies do.

Do you think every man who is attracted to females is also a pedophile? What about women who are attracted to women, also attracted to little kids?

Please, do not do this OP. Use the family restroom if she is too fragile to hear men peeing at a urinal.

Forget to have your coffee this morning? Getting the late afternoon hangry feeling?

Does she go to school? If so, I can guarantee that no one is helping her go to the bathroom.

You absolutely should not be helping her unless she has special needs.

This is only the nth time this argument has occurred.

You are not going to change my mind. If 86% of pedophiles weren't male and if the media didn't portray the non-cis community in such an overly-sexualized way, I would be less leery.

However they are, and they do, so I am.

no one suggested the sound of a man peeing was going to be a big problem. But the sight of it, yeah, I wouldn't want my 6 year old daughter to get a eyeful, and I'm guessing most adult men would prefer for that not to happen either. So I would assume a warning from the dad standing outside the stall that "I've got my 6 year daughter in here" wouldn't come amiss to a man walking into the men's room at that point.

And while I would say it's fine to let a 6 year old girl use the ladies room herself at a small restaurant or similar place, I would not let her go in alone at an airport or ball park or similarly large venue, so if there wasn't a family restroom handy, then yeah, a dad might not have another choice but to take her into the men's room
