Depends where you are. I've never seen anything like that at home and I live in one of the more densely populated cities.
Your comment serves well to point out how inconsequential your issue is, when the best comparison you can come up with is a 20p coin.
I see the fear mongering has been moved to another thread.

You seem to be saying that this idea is not smart? Well, I guess I got it from someone that didn't think it through all the way, or would be uncomfortable relieving themselves outside.

I think the more important question is .... what the hell is going on?
First of all we have been conditioned over the last few decades to think of all citizens of the world as one. Migration and immigration has diluted the race population in most of the worlds big cities. Now our basic thoughts of men are men and women are women are being diluted to think of ourselves as one.
Realistically, the way we have thought for centuries as having a "nationality" and a "gender" have changed dramatically over the last 50 years.
Why? what is the end game?

the only bathroom laws are trying to force people who look more like the sex they weren't born as into the bathroom of the sex they were born with.
it seems to me, that it would produce more hysteria over the issue of bathroom issue since you are gonna be having a bunch of people who really do appear to be men, going into women's bathroom if people obey the law instead of their sense of reason!
regardless of how anyone one of us feel about the gays, transgendered, ect... we have to at least accept the fact that there are people out there that look like something they aren't to the point that they will not be accepted as being what they were born as physically.
and as someone a post or two above your post points out, we cannot dismiss the idea that our neglect of our environment and resulting pollution just might be the cause to at least some of the problems that we are facing. in which case, the answer to the problem wouldn't be to treat those affected the way some seem to want to treat them, but rather address that which is causing the problem to begin with, the way we treat our environment!
From national and state/local-run groups whose only purpose for existence is to protect women from sexual violence? I don't think so.
