"Elephants and giraffes, Qian and Kun", how to distinguish these signs of toilet, if you do not understand, you can only remain silent
In recent decades, our way of life has been slowly changing, and some new industries have emerged, such as tourism and hospitality, that did not exist before. The development of these new industries has motivated us to change our lives. After our busy working life.
We can go to some places with very beautiful scenery to relax our body and mind and release tension caused by work and life. At same time, we can also get to know local customs and habits, expand our knowledge and enrich our experience, which will also lead to development of tourism.
At same time, more people like it and go to other places in their spare time. And on some official holidays, you can see a lot of people at tourist attractions anywhere, and we often come across some things we didn't expect when we travel.
For example, we accidentally spilled food on our clothes or suddenly felt very uncomfortable in stomach and wanted to go to toilet. Typically, there will be several public toilets in restricted area. signs on doors of these toilets, some very simple and some very strange.
In our everyday life, it is especially easy to distinguish toilet signs that we often see: a skirt.
Under normal circumstances, those who wear skirts represent women's room, and those who don't wear skirt represent men's room. However, in some places abroad, icon they designed for bathroom is very special because it does not have Chinese characters or English letters for men and women.
They directly gave two animals, one is an elephant and other is a giraffe. Because we don't know what they mean, so we have no way of knowing which room we're going to. We can only wait at door for other people to come and see which room they go to.
Then follow them or walk in opposite direction. And meaning of these icons can only be known by their creators, and only they can give answers we want to know.
Having understood intent of their design, we can clearly understand that a deer with a very long neck represents women because women are very tall, and this animal solves physiological problems. If necessary, they need to separate their legs in order to bear some resemblance to human women.
Because they need to spread their legs when they are dealing with their physical needs. Moreover, male bodies are especially majestic and strong compared to female ones. As a rule, very large elephants are depicted as men.
So when we go to a very strange place, we must first find out what icon on their bathroom door means, because if we get it wrong, it will cause unnecessary misunderstanding, because no one will feel especially embarrassed for misunderstanding such a very simple thing.
Moreover, such things have generated a lot of discussion after people have posted them online because in the eyes of most people, such icons are very special, and if they do not understand their meaning, they will cause some not-so- good misunderstandings. In terms of people's arguments, the designers of these templates have stated that this is done for innovation, and only through constant innovation can they create more refined and beautiful work.
In addition to using elephants and giraffes to represent different bathrooms, some people prefer to use cats and chickens to represent different bathrooms. When we first saw these two signs, we all felt very confused. because we don't even know what they mean.
However, after careful observation, we find that hen drawing represents a virile, frisky big rooster because it has a long tail and a large comb, so rooster represents a male bathroom. Conversely, cats represent women's toilets because they find women especially cute and cute, so they use cats instead of women.
In some places, two Chinese characters are used for different bathrooms: Qian and Kong. When we first saw these two Chinese characters, it was difficult for us to understand their meaning. Because in our traditional culture, Qian represents men and Kun represents women.
Therefore, in some places they are used to refer to different toilets. There are also some places that set patterns on doors of public toilets in their scenic spots: women in bath towels and men in shorts, and they are holding various objects in their hands.
Thus, it not only corresponds to characteristics of this picturesque place, but is also easily recognizable. Of course, in addition to these signs, there is a special sign, i.e. purple sign, usually such a sign appears in bathroom of a place called Thailand in Southeast Asia.
Because such a bathroom is specially prepared for transgender people. Although they have changed their appearance, their actual body structure has not changed. This is also done in order to provide them with convenience.
