“Transgender university students have been given their own set of toilets at their union’s nightclub.”
January 30, 2009
If you’ve ever wondered why some transsexual folks get set on edge about “Gender Neutral Bathroom Activism,” we’re worried about this:
TRANSGENDER university students have been given their own set of toilets at their union’s nightclub.
Males, females and people who are disabled still have separate toilet facilities.
yeah. I’m sure it’s the reporter being a dipshit rather than the actual policy being that way, but the tone of the report says: “if you’re trans, these are the only bathrooms you can use.” Which would be a substantial step down in safety and accessibility of bathrooms for transsexual folks, particularly women & POC.
So, please, don’t condescend to us and tell us it’s coz we’re uncomfortable talking about peeing.
