I've done that a few times (not the Pope thing). You're standing in this huge like for the women's and keep looking over at the men's which never has any line...and a group of women start looking at the men's room, and then at each other, and back at the men's room. And it's we all get that same "hell yeah, I'm using the men's room!" all at once.

Oh yeah, I do this without hesitation at restaurants and gas stations where there's one seperate bathroom for each. I dunno if I'd be brave enough to go into a more "public" restroom, like with stalls and urinals...maybe with a group of girls

When I was in my undergrad, the physics building had only 3 stalls for women on the entire main floor. We always figured it was because women were smart enough to stay out of there if at all possible.

It can be a mixed blessing. That McDonald's mensroom was truly frightening. But when ya gotta pee, you can hover!

I have been in arenas, airports, etc. where there are plenty of stalls but still huge lines-also in many places where there aren't enough stalls

I have never used the mens' room as a result-they scare me a little

I think if it took men as long in the restroom as it takes women they would have had potty parity a long time ago

Just as if men gave birth there would be no question of insurance paying for birth control. It just would.
