Teachers and parents demanding a stop to gender-neutral bathrooms after girls refuse to use them

By Jonathon Van Maren

The backlash is continuing against the gender-neutral bathrooms transgender activists are demanding. Earlier this month, I noted a story in this month’s edition of The Atlantic, written by a parent who discussed the chaos that resulted when the school decided to eliminate gender designations for student bathrooms — without consulting the parents. This parent — who is very much a liberal — described the profound discomfort of the students, some of whom simply refused to use the bathroom while at school and waited until the school day was over.

According to the Daily Mail, these policies are having a similar impact in the United Kingdom, where gender-neutral bathrooms “have left girls feeling unsafe and even put their health at risk,” according to both teachers and parents. In fact, they reported, the surge in primary and secondary schools implementing gender-neutral bathrooms has made girls “who are menstruating so anxious about sharing facilities with boys that some are staying at home for fear of being made to feel ‘period shame.’” Some are even “risking infections by refusing to urinate all day,” and others are coping by refusing to drink liquids while at school.

  1. Irene Jen says:

    Jude 5:7: as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. The prideful person attempts to fulfill his or her own desires in any number of ways, which often leads to sexual sins, addictions, and other destructive habits. Ultimately, these end in spiritual, emotional, and mental devastation. Only the LORD has the ability to satisfy the yearning in our hearts, and He assumes full responsibility for out needs when we obey Him.
