Today I woke up and had a bit of a bad stomach (I had the squirts) but as it is nearing the end of term I thought I had best brave it and go to my lectures. I came out of my first lecture and really needed to go and the only WC within 100meters was a disabled one so I decided that it would be better to use that as I don't want it down my leg. When i came out there was a lady standing there who looked at me and said "you don't look very disabled to me" so i explained (obviously in a quiet tone) and she blerted out really loud "Its a Disabled toilet, not a diarrhoea toilet" making me feel somewhat stupid.

Should I feel guilty about using the disabled toilet or was this woman just being far too PC?

Certainly not! Disabled toilet or not, when you've got to go - you've GOT to go! The Sh*ts is definately a pretty disabling affliction in my book! I've used the disabled toilet many times and although it's not something to be proud of, it happens. I take the pre-emptive measure of walking with a limp before and after (just in case some bitch is going to shout about it when I exit!).
Just think, she actually waited to shout at you (I'm presuming she was able-bodied), if that's what makes her feel good about herself then that's hilarious. These people just need to get a life.
On a side note, this reminds me of something that happened to me. There was a disabled kid at college (Wheelchair after a climbing injury), as we were good friends, I knew how far I could push him (no pun intended, honestly!) when it came to humour. Anyway, I opened the disabled toilet door for him one day and said (quietly, I thought) "don't piss on the seat". I thought it was funny, he said afterwards that he did too, unfortunately the IT technician behind me didn't. She called me insensitive and told me that what goes around comes around (hopefully she has people talking crap to her now too!). My friend made it worse by shouting from inside the cubicle "Leave me alone, your words are so hurtful!" - The b*stard!
Anyway, when he came out he explained my 'insensitivity' and told her that I wasn't as evil as she thought. She then lectured him about 'putting up with people like me'. He later told me that the biggest hassle in his life was 'putting up with people like her'. She went away safe in the knowledge that she was going to heaven and I was going the other way - which I suppose is a good thing for her. Having experiences like these has made me think that people who interfere with disabled people are just making them feel more disabled. They don't need do-gooders reminding them that they may struggle sometimes - but we all struggle sometimes - we don't need perfect strangers telling us about it.

Funny this should happen today; I was walking past the Toilets in the library in Uni this morning and there was a notice on the door of the diabled toilet with bold black letters stating "TOILET RESERVED FOR USE BY THE DISABLED ONLY" (or something to that effect), so you're obviously not the only one to do it!

I think the following sums up my answer to your guestion re: guilt though:

Nothing wroing with using it if youv've gotta go. I'm sure the janitorial staff would thank you for using it rather then losing your sh*t in the middle of the floor..

As long as there wasn't anyone genuinely needing to use the facilities while you were in there, I don't think there's a problem (unless they too have the runs, then there's a big problem!

You're a terrible, terrible person. May you be struck with... joking. I see disabled toilets as disabled priority not exclusivity. I once worked in a building that had a separate disabled toilet (not just a disabled stall in a normal toilet) on every floor. Each floor also had a small men's toilet and a small woman's toilet for a total of 36 toilets. Thing was there was not a single disabled person that worked at the entire facility in the entire 8 months I was there. Ridiculous.

I don't see a problem with it. If there was no disabled person waiting to use the facilities when you came out, no harm no foul.

Same with parking spaces - if nobody's using it, and there's nowhere else to park, you are entitled to declare yourself officially handicapped (by a lack of parking spaces) and make use. I work in a building with at least 3 handicapped parking spots on each floor and in each lot, and no (none, not one, not even an ingrown toenail) handicapped people. I feel no guilt.

Why ? There's NOBODY disabled who needs to use the parking space (and I don't do it all the time, just when there's no other space) - they only have the spaces to comply with the law. I've worked at the company 6 years now, and I've never seen anyone working there in a wheelchair - this is France, for Christ's sake, if you get a runny nose they book you off long-term sick for 3 years. Nobody, I mean NOBODY, ever legitimately parks in those spaces.

Should have looked at her and said something to the effect of "320 floor tiles, 20 by 16 yes that equals 320... you have two earrings and that is one plus one......not handicapped but i add real well......my mommy is here isn't she? Can you help me find my mommy?" She would have left a smoke trail.
