A trend has been raging in schools all across the western world, causing administrations to create “gender-neutral” bathrooms for students. With the trend still in its infancy, results are not yet fully realized; but one school, at least, has found that their trendy new bathroom idea is causing frightening problems for women.
Falling in line with the gay lobby-backed bathroom policy, the University of Toronto authorized its own “gender-neutral” bathrooms earlier this year. But now, the university has been forced to alter its well-meant policy because of the danger it is presenting to female students.
According to The Toronto Star, the University is re-evaluating its gender-neutral bathroom policy because several female students were victims of voyeurism and unwanted photography when they were filmed using the school’s showering facilities.
Toronto Police Const. Victor Kwong recently reported that at least two women saw a man’s hand holding a cell phone peaking over shower stalls and filming them or taking images of them as they showered. The police also noted that no suspects have been identified, and no arrests have been made.
As a result of the intrusion into the women’s privacy, the university closed several gender-neutral bathrooms and will be re-evaluating the whole policy in upcoming meetings.
“The purpose of this temporary measure is to provide a safe space for the women who have been directly impacted by the incidents of voyeurism and other students who may feel more comfortable in a single-gender washroom,” dean of students Melinda Scott said.
“The UC Residences continue to work in close collaboration with the Community Safety Office and Campus Police to ensure that the residences are a safe space for our students,” the school said in a statement.
This sort of incident is exactly what opponents of allowing men and women to intermingle in bathrooms warned about.
This trend of creating gender-neutral bathrooms isn’t relegated only to universities. High schools and other primary schools all across the United States have indulged in this trend to satisfy the gay lobby.
In one instance, a Missouri student demanded that his school allow him to use the girls’ gym locker room because he “identified” as a girl. The school began to move to satisfy the student to the complaints of parents.
In another case that occurred only weeks later, a school in Ohio also moved to institute the controversial bathroom policy. Complaints from parents were also raised in that case.
In the Ohio case, school administrators admitted that they initiated the policy to avoid lawsuits by gay groups.
