“I do not see a problem with this,” penned the third user. It’s general knowledge that men and women dress differently. That’s right—the imagery is perplexing. Someone can use the wrong restroom. However, I find it amusing to compare saris and lungis.”
I do not see a problem with this. The fact that men and women have different dresses is common knowledge. The imagery is confusing, that is correct. Someone may mistake their assigned washrooms. But I do not mind the sari and lungi comparison.
