Considering how widespread these stories are across the United States these days, an incident in Canada may prove instructive for those debating the SJW’s demands for genderless public facilities and the intersection between those policies and traditional privacy concerns. The University of Toronto recently went down the same path being forced into place on American campuses, instituting unisex bathrooms, locker rooms and showers. What could possibly go wrong? They found out in short order. (The Daily Wire)
The administration at the University of Toronto was recently enlightened on why two separate washrooms are generally established for men and women sharing co-ed residencies.
The University is temporarily changing its policy on gender-neutral bathrooms after two separate incidents of “voyeurism” were reported on campus September 15 and 19. Male students within the University’s Whitney Hall student residence were caught holding their cellphones over female students’ shower stalls and filming them as they showered.
Melinda Scott, dean of students at the University of Toronto, told The Daily Wire that campus police had been contacted immediately and worked with residence staff to “support impacted students and ensure the safety of the Residences.”
Do we really need to sanitize this story by referring to it as voyeurism? We’re talking about a crime here as defined in the laws of every state in the nation. And as much as we might like to think the best of our fellow human beings, we have these laws for a reason. Some people are just creeps (at a minimum) or potential felons in a worst case scenario. There is nothing racist, bigoted, hateful or homophobic about preserving the simple, fundamental privacy of women (in particular) by providing them with gender specific public facilities.
