University of Toronto Learns Why Mandatory Unisex Bathrooms Are A Bad Idea
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.
That’s not the end of the story, though. In this bold new world of the 21st century we also have to deal with questions of those engaged in gender impersonation who similarly demand unfettered access to showers, locker rooms and bathrooms. In this regard, Melinda Scott, dean of students at the university, demonstrated that she still wasn’t grasping the full scope of the problem because she remains locked in a “transgender” state of mind. (Emphasis added)
“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.
Even if we were to take every individual in this category at their word and assume that they truly somehow believed they are of the opposite gender, that doesn’t mean that the actual women using the showers must be forced to believe it or should have to expose themselves to someone who is clearly a male. Beyond that, such misguided thinking ignores the likelihood that we will see the two problems colliding as “normal” males of bad intent will simply claim to be “transgender” to gain an advantage. In fact it’s already happened.
A man claimed a right to use a women’s locker room at a public swimming pool after his partial undressing there caused alarm.
According to Seattle Parks and Recreation, women alerted staff at Evans Pool staff when a man wearing swim trunks entered the women’s locker room and took off his shirt.
When staff told him to leave, the man reportedly said “the law has changed and I have a right to be here.”
Gee… who could have seen that one coming? (Aside from anyone with a lick of common sense who isn’t blinded by political correctness, that is.) Toronto should serve as a test laboratory for the dangerous, misguided plans being put into effect around the United States today. This foolishness isn’t just wrongheaded.. it’s dangerous. This Canadian university learned a quick lesson the hard way, thankfully without anyone being physically assaulted. How far does it have to go in the United States before we acknowledge both science and reality as well?
White Privilege Now Inculdes The Privilege Of Being Fired For being White
Its should be obvious by now that the politically correct left, insaniac sociopaths that they are, have only one emotion at their disposal; hate. Bizarrely the hatered of these predominantly white, middle class people, while of themselves, is mostly racist in nature but directed at members of their own race.

The BBC will not accept any criticism when it comes to anything of a political nature.

Hungarian Leader Says Soros-Funded Groups Are Making Money From The Immigration Crisis
While Germany pursues its policy of replacing expensive German labour with cheap third woeld labour at act as fodder for its profit hungry factories, and the French government obediently follow their German masters while Britain stands aside, it is the poorer E U nations, led by Hungary, that have at last acted to stop the flood of unskilled, often illiterate refugees from third world nations flooding into EU nations.
Americans are stupid, right? Well it is a generalization and generalisations are usually both right and wrong. Not all Americans are stupid of course, I know many who are very intelligent and highly articulate. But as in Britain, France, Austrilia, Russia, Germany, China etc. there are stupid people in America. What we mean however in saying Americans are stupid is that overall American citizens tend to be less well informed on current events and general knowledge that Europeans, Asians and South Americans...
Sham Marriages To Beat Immigration Laws Are Out Of Control
With main immigration news on being dominated by the Mediterranean boat people crisis and the masses at Calais hoping to stow away in a freight container, we forget that another way of getting somebody into the country is the sham marriage. Numbers involved may be small, but it is another indication of our governments' failure to address the immigration problem.
