  1. I suspect I’d obey the signs, but not because I wanted to conform but to be helpful. Upon coming on such signs, I’d suppose someone was trying to count the number of men and women passing through during a given time period or for a certain event.

    As for testing gender conformity, I don’t think this experiment does it well. Conformity period, perhaps more so, although it could just be people trying to be helpful (as with my supposing someone is counting men/women).
