Alison Moyet wants same-sex toilets to be retained to protect women from men who ‘choose to intimidate’
Alison Moyet has called for the maintenance of same-sex facilities after describing her own experience of a man “deliberately” urinating in front of her with the cubicle door open.
The 61-year-old singer, pictured, complained that women were “unable” to tell men to exit women’s restrooms.
“At rehearsals when I was washing my hands, a guy took … the booth a foot from me,” she tweeted.
“Didn’t shut the door but got his cock out and is closer than my husband…men can willingly intimidate women.” The 1980s pop star, whose hits include “Is This Love,” said: “He didn’t bust. He showed me he can do it.’ She added, “Men like this silently show they want to disrupt our sense of security.”
The singer defended trans women who use women’s restrooms, adding, “I’ve never met a trans woman in a women’s restroom who was anything but mindful and decent.”
