Washroom signs can sometimes get a little too creative, especially when it fails to sort its users properly.
In Taiwan, a man encountered confusing toi.let signs and took to a Facebook group(roughly translated as “viral trash news community”) to share his experience.
He uploaded photos of both toi.let doors in his post and asked, “Which one is the male toi.let?”
One was of an elephant, and the other, a giraffe:

In his post’s comments section, some responses suggested that he should just enter any door to find out.
“If you pull the door, you’ll find out right away.

Some also guessed that the elephant logo indicated the male toi.let:
“The male toi.let should be the elephant.
If you p.ee at the door, someone will come and tell you the answer.”
“The left is for the guys. The right is for those who wish to p.eep at those on the left.
I can understand the elephant, but what about the giraffe?

The elephant symbol was for the male toi.let.
The man who put up the Facebook post subsequently posted an update confirming that the elephant logo symbolized the male toi.let.

And the way giraffes ur.inate resemble how ladies do their business:
