The city of Portland has banned urinals in its newly-renovated administrative building to "remove arbitrary barriers in our community," according to KGW-TV.

According to the report, Chief Administrative Officer Tom Rinehart sent an e-mail to employees in February informing them of the decision, writing, "we will continue to have gender-specific (male and female) multi-stall restrooms that are readily available to any employee that prefers to use one.
