Regarding recent state laws that deal with transgender facilities or gender-neutral restroom policies, critics have claimed that the laws are based on purely hypothetical scare scenarios that would never actually happen in real life.
Maybe you’ve already guessed by now as to why this particular university had to rethink their gender-neutral restroom policy. I’ll give you a hint. It has something to do with shower stalls and cellphone cameras.
This is what we always said would happen when people were allowed to “define” their own genders so they could use their bathroom of choice. Now, it’s common for public places to offer gender-neutral bathrooms and/or locker rooms for those who don’t identify with either gender.
Or, perhaps you’re a man trapped in a woman’s body, so you’re going to want to use the men’s restroom. But you know you’re going to be looked at strangely if you do, so you use the gender-neutral restroom/locker room, if there’s one available.
The Daily Wire reported last October:
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.”
“Given the serious nature of these incidents and the impact on directly affected students, we made the decision to specifically designate some washrooms in Whitney Hall for those who identify as men and those who identify as women,” Scott said.
If a female goes in to the gender-neutral locker room to shower, a male who “identifies” as a woman could go in right after her, and no one is supposed to say anything about it. Questioning that man’s motives would constitute “transphobia” and discrimination. This isn’t just a “what if” scenario. It happens. Probably a lot. Let’s not forget what happened in Seattle just a couple months ago:
Of course, pretending that this sort of thing didn’t happen before the whole gender identity crisis started would be silly. The difference, however, is that now, it’s permissible for a man to use the women’s restroom. All he has to do is claim that he identifies as a woman. And then once he’s in the restroom, everything he does is his own business.
