...A George Washington University law professor says the 5,000 port-o-potties planned for Inauguration Day will be "grossly inadequate."

Professor John Banzhaf, the so-called "Father of Potty Parity" sent a letter to the Presidential Inaugural Committee warning of potential lawsuits.

...

Banzhaf says waiting in long lines is not just an inconvenience. It can trigger medical problems. He's asking the Presidential Inaugural Committee to make the toilets gender-neutral so that women do not have to wait longer than men.link (http://www.wtopnews.com/?nid=780&sid=1572281)

Perhaps John Edwards will take the cases on, he seems to be at a loose end. :D

They could hand out those little paper funnels that the Europeans are so fond of. How do those things work for women anyway, Bijou? :D

A couple of years ago there were a bunch of stories about them out of Germany (but they were used elsewhere). Apparently they enable females to use outdoor urinals at large events. :eek:

I'm surprised that the left hasn't called for separate but equal potties for republicans. ;)

WASHINGTON - The masses heading to the inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama could spend a lot of time in line for a port-a-potty. A George Washington University law professor says the 5,000 port-o-potties planned for Inauguration Day will be "grossly inadequate."

Professor John Banzhaf, the so-called "Father of Potty Parity" sent a letter to the Presidential Inaugural Committee warning of potential lawsuits. He says women, who take longer in the restroom, could be forced to wait in longer lines than men, and that amounts to discrimination. Banzhaf says waiting in long lines is not just an inconvenience. It can trigger medical problems. He's asking the Presidential Inaugural Committee to make the toilets gender-neutral so that women do not have to wait longer than men.
