Remember two weeks ago when Miguel wrote a post about how Portland is going to virtue signal and cater to the radical LGBT community – which makes up about 0.4% of the population – by spending millions of dollars to make all the bathrooms in the municipal building gender-neutral?
Once again, we turn to the British press to report on things the US press won’t.
The British press also serves as a window into our future as to what will happen when we adopt repressive, Woke laws to govern our land as well.
Girls are skipping school to avoid sharing gender neutral toilets with boys after being left to feel unsafe and ashamed
Menstruating girls are staying home for fear of being made to feel ‘period shame’
Some girls are risking infections by refusing to urinate all day or not drinking
Doctors and politicians called on schools to halt the move towards unisex toilets
Gender-neutral toilets in schools have left girls feeling unsafe and even put their health at risk, parents and teachers have warned.
Girls who are menstruating are so anxious about sharing facilities with boys that some are staying at home for fear of being made to feel ‘period shame’.
With a growing number of both primary and secondary schools installing unisex toilets, some girls are risking infections by refusing to urinate all day.
Others are so fearful they have stopped drinking liquids at school.
The trend for single-sex toilets is driven by the wish to be more inclusive of children who identify as transgender and wish to use the same facilities as the opposite sex.
But last night, doctors and politicians called on schools to halt the move towards unisex toilets to prevent any further harm to female pupils.
GP Tessa Katz said holding in urine for prolonged periods on a regular basis could increase the risk of girls suffering urinary and bladder infections.
‘The psychological effects of girls not feeling safe enough to use mixed-sex toilets is also concerning,’ Dr Katz said.
Does anybody believe that women in Portland are much different than girls in the UK when it comes to not wanting to be seen using the toilet?
Consider that this is a municipal building, and like libraries, they are open to the public. Homeless often use municipal bathrooms, like library bathrooms, for grooming and doing drugs.
So what Portland has done is made it even easier for a vagrant to spy on a woman while she is using the toilet.
I’ll tell you, as a man, the idea of a gender-neutral bathroom terrifies me because I am afraid of the potential to be falsely accused of spying on a woman in the toilet. Imagine being a boss and seeing a female subordinate you just reprimanded go into the stall next to yours.
The Portland city government may proclaim that it has done a great deed toward gender inclusion and equality. What they’ve really done is condemned the majority of their female employees and customers to a horrible workplace and physical and mental stress, and threw open the door to make employees to an increased possibility for false sexual impropriety claims.
This seems like a worthwhile use of taxpayer dollars to me.
