I personally find it disturbing, that as a country we are wasting so much time and money on this. The easiest solution is to make all public restrooms come with one toilet and a lock on the door. We can use the empty one. There is no need for signs stating Male, Female or whatever. The places of business will get back more space by downsizing to just one or perhaps keeping two for convenience.  This will go away quickly once a stadium with thousands of people have to wait for someone behind a locked door no running in to go quickly.
