Re: Ladies and Gents no more. Has the world gone completely mad?

In the large factory where I worked for 30+ years the toilets were designated thus:

The toilets in the middle of the machine shop bore notices: "Male" and "Female"
The toilets where technical and office staff worked were: "Men" and "Women".
The toilets in the management corridors were: "Gentlemen" and "Ladies".

This 'classist' designation remaned so until the factory closed in the early 90's.
