    I always thought it was strange to have one big room for showering. Who wants to shower with other people of same gender? Really, does anyone really want to do that besides perhaps gays? I don't. It always disturbed me that people would build the showers facilities that way. We have little tiny walls between urinals, but nothing in the shower, really? Ummm...what?

    for straight people it did, obviously not that well for gays but the point was that the idea of it was not that strange

    So you call men immature insecure little boys for something you are unwilling to do yourself?

    How about the fact they are sexually attracted to men and we are men. Maybe that is unsettling in the locker room shower. Ever think of that? Really though, the entire locker room shower set up is idiotic. No one wants to shower with other dudes. It's ****ing weird.

    My gynecologist is a dude and my primary care doc is a dude. Have been since I was 16. They have both seen me naked and managed to control themselves. If you apply a little maturity and assume that they are just as capable of conducting themselves like a professional then you should be able to survive the ordeal.

    You are the one who joined the discussion with the insults. All I'm asking is why you would insult people for something you don't have the guts to do yourself?

    That is so great. Tell me, what exactly is wrong with feeling unsettled about the prospect about showering with other guys that are sexually attracted to you? We both know there is nothing wrong with it, but you don't care how anyone feels about it. You just want everyone to accept it. Well, guess what, you have to consider how EVERYONE feels when the shower is for EVERYONE.

    You are playing games. I never said that you assumed it based on my response. Try again.

    You mean you dodged the question because your answer didn't fit your pre-programmed narrative, care to answer it now?
