Will They Leave the Seat Down?

Navy Times Reports: “For the first time, the Navy has designed an aircraft carrier with women in mind. Gerald R. Ford-class carriers will have gender-neutral berthing and heads without urinals, differentiating them from all previous carriers.”

While this is great progress for accomodating women in the service, I can’t help but wonder how long it will be until the military forgoes male/female specific bathrooms altogether and incorporates unisex bathrooms (which seem to be popping up all over the place in the civilian world). Of course this brings up the age old question, will they leave the seat down?!
