Most public toilets are gender-specific, with clear signs to differentiate men from that of women. The setup of these toilets can be the same for both genders or modified to cater to distinct needs. There is always an urge to compare the hygiene state of both. Several arguments have arisen to suggest why one set of toilets are cleaner than the other.
