Maybe you’ve already guessed by now as to why this university had to rethink their “gender-neutral” restroom policy. I’ll give you a hint. It has something to do with shower stalls and cellphone cameras.
This is what we always said would happen when people were allowed to “define” their own genders so they could use their bathroom of choice. Now, it’s common for public places to offer “gender-neutral” bathrooms and/or locker rooms for those who don’t identify with either gender.
Or, perhaps you’re a man trapped in a woman’s body, so you’re going to want to use the men’s restroom. But you know you’re going to be looked at strangely if you do, so you use the gender-neutral restroom/locker room, if there’s one available.
But these weird gender issues always have unintended consequences. The Blaze reported:
The University of Toronto is reducing the number of dormitory gender-neutral bathrooms after showering women reported seeing cellphones reached over stall dividers in apparent attempts to videotape them.
The two incidents occurred last month in Whitney Hall, a dorm at U of T’s University College which houses 250 students, Police Const. Victor Kwong told the Toronto Star. No culprits have been found.
Melinda Scott, dean of students at University College, told the student newspaper that some dorm bathrooms now will be women-only or men-only for “those who identify as men and those who identify as women,” the Huffington Post Canada reported, adding that at least one gender-neutral bathroom will remain on each dorm floor.
“The purpose of this temporary measure is to provide a safe space for the women who have been directly impacted by these events and other students who may feel more comfortable in a single-gender washroom in the wake of these incidents,” Scott added.
If a female goes in to the gender-neutral locker room to shower, a male who “identifies” as a woman could go in right after her, and no one is supposed to say anything about it. Questioning that man’s motives would constitute “transphobia” and discrimination. This isn’t just a “what if” scenario. It happens. Probably a lot.
Of course, pretending that this sort of thing didn’t happen before the whole gender identity crisis started would be silly. The difference, however, is that now, it’s permissible for a man to use the women’s restroom. All he has to do is claim that he identifies as a woman. And then once he’s in the restroom, everything he does is his own business.
If people want to continue to break down the barriers and distinctions between male and female, they do it at their own risk and out of their own ignorance.
