Female Urinals Could Become Mainstream

If you've ever been to any public event you've probably seen how crazy the lines are for the women's bathroom. You've also probably noticed how much faster the men's line is. Well, that could all change soon.  

It seems that the reason why women's bathroom lines are so long is that they often have fewer toilets. Stalls take up way more room than urinals. Men's bathrooms have an average of 1.3 toilets for every 1 in a women's bathroom.

So, to address this issue a plumbing company in Hong Kong is pushing for female urinals. They say the urinals would cut women's time in the bathroom in half and, as a result, they'd cut the lines in half too.

They're just like urinals in a men's room, only the women get a disposable cardboard funnel that they can use to kinda aim their stream into the urinal without any splashing or mess.

This female urinal system already exists in limited places but it's never gone mainstream. At least not yet.
