Accidentally Used the Ladies Room


First time in my life that I accidentally used the ladies room today. Kind of embarrassed. As I was walking out, there was a lady standing at the sink and she was staring at me angrily. I washed my hands and walked out of there as if nothing happened. What would you have done?

I use the "ladies" room because I don't fit in either. I'm trying to get desensitized to the bitter looks and scared reactions. If someone says something I'll have to tell them the truth: " I'm a nonbinary pre transition transwoman-thing, wanna fight me?"

Had a similar thing happen yesterday - a girl was walking towards the men's as I was leaving so I told her she was going into the wrong one.

I always "accidentally" do it too. All the screaming gets annoying though

I did once because there was a sign that the men's restroom toilet wasn't working and it was a one person toilet bathroom with a lock anyways.

What's a "toilet bathroom"?

I once did this, the toilets were labelled as pirates and mermaids. Only saw the mermaids sign on the way out of the pirates.

If you used the woman's room to piss, then I sure as hell hope you sat down. Women's rooms are only equipped for sitting down.

If I was in the men's room and a woman used it accidentally or non-accidentally, I really wouldn't care. Don't know why people would snowflake about something's like this. News alert: news alert: humans need to go to the toilet.

First it was so quiet and now I know I am not alone in here.

I did this one time at a park. I was in a hurry and I walked in to this large, janky restroom that was poorly marked. Looked around and noticed there were no urinals and realized my mistake. On my way back out there was a teenage girl who had just walked in with the look of terror on her face that a man was in the women's room. I said I made a mistake and got out of there quickly.
That happened in 2010. If that happened in 2019 I'd probably be on the news and definitely all over social media.
Unless....I made up an excuse that I identify as female then I might be ok.

I can't see myself doing this, unless I was really drunk or maybe at one of those dingy dungeon restrooms they have at the public parks here. I find there is usually this smell in the woman's restroom. It's like a mix of menstrual blood and the masking fragrance used on sanitary napkins. I think (hope) I would notice something is really wrong before I ventured too far in.

no, just skirts sometimes. I just assume that everyone sees me as an eccentric-looking man and nothing else.

I have done it twice. Both were intentional though, well, sort of. The first time was at the gym. I was going into the Mens locker room when I saw a sign sitting at the door saying that the men and women's locker rooms had been switched. Going over to the women's locker room, I saw the same sign and proceeded to walk in and use the restroom. There was no one in there though. To this day I don't know what was going on, if someone was just having a laugh or if there was some reason behind it.



The second time was at a restaurant A Five Guys I believe. We had been in the car for hours and I REALLY had to go. The men's room door was locked. I knocked but didn't hear anything. Trying to be polite I waited for a bit, but in the end, I just couldn't and went into the women's room. It was one of those single toilet bathrooms. I didn't think anything of it until I walked out and saw a lady with her two daughters looking up at me, shocked. I just kind of, smiled, waved, and walked out.



No harm no foul. Still pretty weird though.

I once accidentally did it while distracted on a cell phone call. When I realized I was in the wrong washroom, I was extremely embarrassed, and the lay just laughed at me.

Cant say I recall doing it myself but I've seen a few women using the men's room. If it did happen to me, I'd like to think I'd apologise and say something funny and laugh it off... but I'd most likely just run out without saying anything.

I like the idea of living in a world where people feel comfortable and safe enough to use a shared toilet. But in reality, it's not like that. I've had some real bizzare stuff happen in toilets. For a shy person it can be a place for refuge but unfortunately it can also attract the freaks and weirdos.

Why is there actually gendered toilets? (Apart from the fact that it might be mildly amusing to imagine a woman trying to pee in a urinal) lol. I mean, people in their homes don't have them. In a public toilet if it's just closed stalls that you can lock, then there should be no problem with a unisex toilet.
