Again my concern would be that mens restrooms are now considered to be open house so you do need to be alert. I have been told by a facilities manager that it is now being assumed that 'any man using a urinal in an open area in the Gents is happy for anyone to come in'. These days anyone is not just another man, but female cleaners, manageress's, mothers with young sons, fathers with young daughters, transgender individuals, female police officers surveying the scene etc. Furthermore if, for instance, one of these people is already in there, a man could be accused of indecent exposure if he goes ahead and uses a urinal and behaves as if they are not there. All this cross sex/gender stuff makes it too complicated and you need to have your wits about you.
