I agree with PP. It's about choosing the best of two evils. The safety of our little boys is more important than the desire of our little girls not to have boys in the changeroom. And visa versa if dad is taking girls to the pool.
However, I do think parents need to teach their kids about changeroom etiquette young. It is unacceptable to stare at other people. Eyes against the wall.

I also feel uncomfortable about the message this sends. It's a clear message that girl bodies are somehow more sacred and private than boy bodies.
All sucky options IMO, yes, but again, why do you feel you can take away the girls option just because the boys don't have a good one?
I know it's not fair that boys have a good option. But you can't just take away the girls option just to 'make it even'. That's just silly.
You talk about girls getting changed and boys 'waltzing in at any time' like that's this terrible thing yet you seem fine with little boys having to change out in the open because they have no other safe option.
And the girls do have privacy. They're in a changeroom full of women and maybe one or two little boys.
