You make a good point about kids. At 9, your son is old enough that people are going to object if he comes with you into the women's bathroom. And surely a men's room in an *airport* is one that any male traveler - even a nine-year-old traveler - ought to be able to use for its intended purpose between flights.
I'm very much in favor of public displays of affection as well as Palm Pilots, so I guess I love PDAs :-). But I truly mean affection, not sexual behavior. I think couples of whatever gender makeup should feel comfortable holding hands, hugging, kissing, etc. But sexual behavior is essentially private, I think, and is intrusive when it isn't. I don't like it when people make out on the subway, either. Although I have to say when it's teenagers I tend to feel more compassionate than disapproving, since it's likely they don't have anywhere to go to be alone together.
Mostly, I think if you want to have sex in a bathroom it should be in a bar, in a hotel (bathroom in a room, not public bathroom) or in your own home.
