Seems to be the case. Don't know why. Is it a man thing or a woman thing?
It's a thing's thing and thangs with wangs always get a free pass. It's been like this forever right, we talk about cavemen days not cavewomen days.  That said what about people who choose to be a thing or an object instead of some other....thing?

At risk of going down the road monty is pointing, recall Annie Lennox's observation that some just want to abuse you and others just want to be abused.  Anythang goes.

So...in addition to yer they's, them's and their's you also have things, thangs and...thongs?

Oh, for sure but it's my observation that women can be a lot harder on each other than men often are. I don't pretend to know how a woman should feel if someone with a dick walks into a women's restroom.

When I was on course in Japan, female cleaning staff would routinely walk into mens washrooms to do their job without any announcement and they wouldn't put up signs to say they were there. No biggie.

When I was quite a bit younger and still living in small town BC (early 80s), I came to the exciting Metropolis of Vancouver to visit my sister.  Sis took me to a night club on Davie (Love? something),  where I ran across an older lady in a rather vintage looking dress in the ladies room.  After she left, I commented to my sister on how she was dressed, whereupon my sister informed me that it was a man and not a woman.  I failed to scream or pass out in shock, enjoyed the rest of my evening and did not find it necessary to write to any newspapers or call in to talk radio to complain about the declining morals of our society, led by lefty progressives.

I have, on occasion, taken my wombful body into the men's washroom when the ladies was too busy.  Nobody died.

Luvafair!  On Seymour just by Granville Street bridge.  My god, I had some good times there in the mid 90's. 

ETA - Cross street was Davie actually if that's what you remember... between Davie and Drake.  So yes, lots of interesting people there.  Good times.

Yup, Luvafair.  I figured someone would know but
I wasn't very familar with Vancouver, so no doubt remembered the location wrong.  Also had some good times at Roxies.  Other spots I can't recall the names, but got asked to leave at one because a couple of guys were being bothersome to my sister and I guess they were regulars and I was too loud in my objections. Or something like that.  :)

Au contraire.  I was immersed in Eastern humour for 10 years (Toronto and Montreal).  That's where I honed my skills for the west coast comeback.

I was born in TO but my 45 year immersion in Vancouver Island culture has resulted in taking 'freeze you eastern bastards' to mean anywhere east of the EEC border down the middle of the Salish Sea.  I even still have an old Vancouver Island Liberation Organization tee-shirt.

Please do not confuse VILO with the ILA.

Quote
The Island Liberation Army, or ILA, is the main land warfare force of the Vancouver Island Soviet Socialist Republic. Founded by Comrade Dustinov, General Secretary of the VISSR, on August 5th 2019. The ILA is half of the armed wing of the ruling Communist Party of the VISSR, along with the Island Liberation Navy.

Oh I'm still a captain alright. I lived in North TO, usually on and within a few blocks of Yonge St from just north of Lawrence Ave almost down to Bloor St.  Hog's Hollow was still farmland when I lived there - I was 16/17 when I hitch-hiked out west - Christ it's probably closer to 48 years I've been out here now.

Went logging and fishing after a short stint as a pin-setter at the local bowling alley.  Locals thought it was great sport to launch bowling balls at the hippy down in the pit. I fit right in when I promptly fired them back up the lane at them.

I used to set pins for a few extra bucks and remember some of the smart asses who would try and make me jump. Good on ya for firing them back.

Well it was either that go back to Toronto with my tail between my legs. That said I'll never forget my first couple of weeks on a yarder crew.  Everyone screamed at me and it didn't stop until they threw out a new greenhorn chokerman.  I screamed 'today man, today'! with all the gusto of a veteran too.

I made a deckhand cry a couple years ago and it nearly caused a human rights hearing.
