The traditional sign on the door of the Gents has been temporarily replaced with one that says 'toilets with urinals'.

And the sign on the Ladies now simply says 'toilets' in a move to make the lavatories more inclusive for trans-gender students.

Why not just simplify it:


With willy


Without willy

A pub in Spain had "Slappers" and "Winkers" on the door.

One in Milton Keynes had "Hogs" and "Sows". I guess not many muslims drank in that one.

The signs on the bog doors of a certain establishment in Manchester are written in Oirish!

Now that is f**king confusing!

I went to some toilets in a ski resort in Austria when I was 13
Signs were in German - a Language I didn't (and still don't know)

I had to take a guess

XX and XY should be clear enough. You can't change that no matter how many bits you have lopped off/grafted on.

Some people are XXY or XYY. Also, some XYs have female parts (due to an inability to repond to male growth hormone in the womb).

Almost pissed my self laughing

Reporter: Isn't this political correctness gone mad?
Student Welfare Bint: I think "political correctness gone mad" is itself an unpolitically correct term
R: Why?
Bint: Because using the term mad in a derogatory fashion is..erm... disabalist in itself
