More Unisex Stuff

Our local hypermarché, Géant, sells a few items of clothing. And so it needs changing rooms where people can try the gear on. Regrettably, the open-minded French culture has not transplanted itself very well to this region. They have one changing area, containing about 6 cubicles, intended for male and female use. It's all very private, and shouldn't really be a problem. But of course in an Islamic country it is a problem. If there is a bloke in one of the cubicles, the security guy will not allow any ladies in. But he will allow other blokes in. The situation is reversed if the first occupant is a lady. What this means is that if you are of the wrong gender when you want to try something on, you could be made to wait any amount of time to be allowed to do it.

Can the concerned authorities do something...

Obviously they need to find a solution. Maybe 3 for each?

and you would think they would do a "culture" plan along with their business plan lol
