The difference is, at home, a creepy date almost never tries to follow you into the bathroom.

However, gendered bathrooms as sanctuary is a solution to a problem that would not exist if society as a whole, and bar staff in particular, were actually willing to enforce laws about harassment.

I'd like unisex bathrooms in general; I'd also like some thought put into addressing the few problems they'd exacerbate. (Those problems are not, "trans women will creep on cis women," which is what the "enforce gender lines" politicians all claim. Strangers of any gender are not the problem.)

However, "people need to pee in peace" is a much higher-level problem than "people sometimes need a respite from an opposite-sex harasser," for which "gendered space" is not supposed to be the solution.
