Is the era of gender-specific toilets in schools and colleges now finally coming to an end?

Increasingly in Britain, the United States and elsewhere, colleges are scrapping the gents and ladies in favour of unisex loos.

The colleges are coming under pressure from LGBT groups to make the big change.

'The Huffington Post' reported a group of San Diego State University students hosted a "s***-in" in order to "raise awareness and advocacy for gender neutral/gender non-segregated bathrooms".

Five toilets were placed outside university buildings and students were urged to come along and take selfies in the Jacks.

We are all in favour of having this ongoing debate, but we are not sure if this kind of militant direct action should be encouraged.
