    Question for the ladies to resolve a discussion me and my better half were having. She says womens changing rooms tend to all be cubicled already, not like blokes ones where you just doff off. She thinks the future is mixed changing rooms with everything cubicled. She's got a point but I still think that will put a lot of women off using them, specially at first until people get used to it. Even in cubicled changing rooms a woman isn't going to feel comfortable when the 5 a side blokes arrive. She disagrees.

    Would the members of the forum that identify as female be put off by mixed changing rooms?
    Cubicles in changing rooms and toilets in Britain tend to be full length unlike in the US, so in some places you don't know who is next to you. I've been told already that transwomen use them.

    The only places that I've used that doesn't have cubicles are gyms and sports centres. Unless you are swimming you can just turn up already changed and go home in your kit.

    In shops in the children's section and some swimming pools they do have family changing cubicles. So you expect parents with opposite sex children using them.

      She's trying to tell you something there!

            A bit like sports for disabled people then, where you get put into categories by mobility you get put into sports by testosterone level. Though the Russians wouldn't like it....

              I frankly can't see why you would allow M->F to compete in sports it just makes no biological sense.
              I think you've got a handful of sports where women can compete - equestrian, shooting, ultra long distance running and swimming. The sort of events that take strength out of the equation.

                They are all open to all genders? No mens/womens comps? Swimming is strength related, possibly ultra long distance running?

                  What makes you say swimming? Quick google of world records looks like it's about as different as men v women in running (women ~10% behind)

                    Same with shooting unless it's specific types of shooting.

                      I am thought ultra long distance cycling and sailing as well as running can be open to both genders on an equal level.
