A gay Web site's praise of bawdy bathroom behavior in Malden City Hall has sparked a tempest over the toilet.
The mayor is ordering the first-floor men's room to remain open while city councilors want it locked up or a security plan put in place.
"The public needs these kinds of facilities and I don't see the need of closing it," said Malden Mayor Richard Howard, adding others are "overreacting" to the gay site.
An anonymous letter sent to the City Council alerted them to a five-star ranking on the Gay Universe site for male-on-male sexual encounters in the stalls.
The men's room in Malden City Hall is the only municipal building listed, according to the site. It’s a desirable destination some politicians are determined to blot out.
"God forbid someone's kids are in there when this is going on," said Councilor John Furlong.
City Council President Michael T. Sheehan, in a letter faxed to the Herald, called on the mayor to present a "security plan" to protect those who need to use the bathroom if he intends to keep it open.
Frank Conway of the Government Center Commission, which oversees the bathrooms, said there have been arrests for trespassing and damage. "I just hope we don't have to hire a detail officer to stay down there," he added.

Especially if they're forced to hire an officer who's gay...
Tell the "customers" to head on over to Newton, where both high schools now have "gay" principals. They're much more accomodating over there.
i HOPE THEY DON'T ACCEPT ANY JOB APPLICATIONS FROM THE VILLAGE PEOPLE......
It's going to be a long election season in Malden. We'll be drinkin' early.
Doug "VB" Goudie is filling in for Howie Carr today. He calls it Brokeback Malden.
The Animal Control Officer for the Board of Health is in an office right by that bath room. He's a giant, he can flush out the Flaming Weasels.
What is it with this bathroom sex for homosexuals? I-95 rest stop leaving Delaware in Chichester Pa is always in the news for men being arrested for public sex. Can't they find someone anywhere other than a public bathroom? Yeeesh
It's their way of sticking their thumbs in society's eye.
You always see stories about how the income of sodmites runs well above the national average...you would think they could afford a nice romantic hotel room. That, of course, would take the thrill out of the multiple anonymous sex encounters they can get at the rest areas. Sodomites are normal? Yeah, right.
Homos work porta potties, for heaven's sake. They troll the lowest depths.. Sick and disgusting.
Cool, I am in Raleigh, NC and originally from Boston. Just spent the night in Medford, sorry Meffa'. Have some old friends in Malden.
