Cleanliness and Restroom Inequality
The men's room in the climbing gym I go to is filthy. I found out a couple months ago that the guys who started the gym were all in a frat together just last year, so they're probably used to the accommodations. Most of the staff is trading work for climbing memberships, so they don't concentrate much or their time on bathroom cleanliness. I was complaining about the inch of water in the men's room and lack of soap and paper towels, and a female friend said the ladies' room is pretty nice. At first I thought this showed some class, but then I realized that they probably clean the restrooms both once a week, and since there are about five times as many men at the gym as women, the women's room becomes less of a pigsty.
