Cultural Note 1: on the multiple meanings of symbols to describe gender in bathrooms

Symbol for Men's bathroom

Symbol for Women's bathroom

Don't ask me why! I was to embarrassed to ask for explanation of symbol after I discovered the gender of the geometrical figures myself when opening the wrong door.

Something about the triangle been more feminine, I guess (my feminist friends are going to kill me for this comment)
