[LETTERS TO THE EDITOR] Toilet cleaners are othersome

I went into the men's toilet at the bus terminal the other day. As soon as I did, a woman entered and started cleaning. Several other men were there as well. We were embarrassed and one by one all of us left.

Cleaning women entering a men's toilet are quite common. Sometimes, the women clean just the toilets or floors, but other times they clean the entire room.

I understand that women help keep the toilets clean, and I thank them. But why can't men clean men's toilets? Also, the women often disrupt privacy. As far as I know, I have never met a women who seems embarrassed when she finds men standing before urinals.

It also provokes the sexual shame of men when women come into the toilet suddenly. Women should show the minimal level of etiquette.
