A gender-neutral toilet (also known as a unisex toilet or a gender-free toilet) is a public toilet that is available for use by all persons, regardless of their gender identity. The presence of gender-neutral toilets can eliminate problems for many people[citation needed]. A gender neutral toilet may also function as a family restroom or as a restroom for disabled persons.

  Thailand

In autumn of 2003, a vocational college in Chiang Mai, Thailand created a gender neutral restroom called the "Pink Lotus" bathroom to accommodate kathoey students.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
