These toilet signs have been slammed online for being sexist, but who are they discriminating against?
The debate has been raging on Reddit, where the image was originally posted, under a thread simply titled: ‘These restrooms‘.
They show the gents’ toilets on the left with the single word ‘bla’, and the ladies’ door on the right with loads of ‘blas’ completely covering it – bla bla bla bla bla bla.

Reddit user Garviel_Loken95 summed it up pretty well with this comment: “I think it’s… ‘women talk more than men in bathrooms'”.
Twollamas1Sheep said: “It’s a stereotype on both of the doors.” While another user, Phubans, commented: “This is a two-way street of sexism, actually. It also implies that men are simple and have nothing to say.”
So, who comes off worse?
