Apparently it lessens the risk of bullyinghmm is it really common? (the unisex toilet, not the bullying)

How does it help against bullying?

Dunno- wouldn't want to use them though...

I'd be surprised if they were even legal. i would have thought each cubicle would have to contain its own washbasin to meet law.

They seem to be legal as it appears to be a new gouvernement guidlinehmm It really does not convince me though! (they mignt have several wash bassins I suppose Katiestar.)

Oh god I remember at that age how mortifying it was changing a tampon there is no way I would have been able to if there were boys in the next cubicle. Don't these people have any sense, do they not remember what it is like to be a self-conscious teenager? hmm

They must be legal, they have them in Ally McBeal grin

hmm not sure I'd like it though, particularly with a teenage girl whose periods have just started
