this is false. have you ever been to a filthy public restroom? it’s the lack of cleaning and careless use that makes them so smelly and disgusting. sure, no one wants to clean bathrooms, yet there are janitors who slave over cleaning rows of stalls in buildings, domestic labor traditionally imposed by default on women, the role of plumber for installation and maintenance traditionally assigned to men, the role of engineer and the sprawling infrastructure that relies on extractivism and industrial mass production and dumps shit into the ocean and makes it toxic. etc.

simple artisanally made compost toilets require less expertise and maintenance and yes shit stinks, no ifs ands or buts about it. what is true is that that kind of toilet cannot be scaled to serve a city with millions of people densely populating a small area (skyscrapers etc).
