I don't really see how having segregated toilets relates to not being treated equally.If both men and women are provided with their own facilities at appointed places then isn't that an example of being treated equally ? p.s. I have used the term toilets rather than restrooms,because British English...

As long as there are still some segregated toilets that people can choose if they're not comfortable for whatever reason, or for efficiency (men can get in and out of toilets much more quickly, thanks to urinals). That's the only way it would work - having an integrated toilet as a 3rd choice.It's ...

I'm afraid the signs were there,it's been a familiar scenario in the UK recently,where the cases in particular of
'family entertainers' Jimmy Saville and Rolf Harris have seen our illusions of them shattered by revelations of their dark sides.

All we can say really is that we have sympathy with everyone affected and have praise for the bravery of those who faced up to the terrorists - such as the tourists and locals in Tunisia who did their best to protect them by forming a human shield.

If Napoleon had won it's possible he could have rebuilt his empire and we would all be speaking French as our first language today (and I include Americans in th...
