A common explanation:

"The crescent or half moon cutout and the star cutout on the door of many outhouses goes back to Colonial times. In a time when few people could read, the crescent moon was the symbol for women while the star cutout was for men. ... The cutout also let light into the outhouse as there were usually no windows."
