At the same time? I hope not.

I'm not a fan of single occupancy restrooms. I find that, ironically, they offer less privacy than multi-user restrooms, since there is always a line to use them, so there is no way to discreetly enter and exit.

You talking about 1-holers?

Indeed, in plains there's only one way to go, regardless of your gender.

Why the f would women want to use a RR where guys use it? Public Men's rooms smell like pee farts and s--t. I'm sure every woman's wet dream is to sit down and pee while hearing some fat hog in the next stall grunt snort fart and crap out a digested turkey sandwich on rye. And when they get out of the stall they get to see some guy pissing in a waterless urinal. Btw waterless urinals are the most disgusting things ever made
If women thought men were disgusting before this will just seal that opinion into fact.

I don't even like having to share the restroom with my own gender! I hope the "family restroom" concept (single toilet) becomes more commonplace, although I have yet to use one. I like as much privacy as possible. It seems strange to me that it is even acceptable for people to use the same bathroom at the same time. I can see maybe for a crowded facility like a stadium, but for most applications they could just as easily built 2 or 3 separate rooms instead of one room with 2 or 3 toilets/urinal.

Males a usually standing "shoulder to shoulder" when using public restrooms.

There's already an unwritten golden rule of "one urinal apart"
