The crusade to install gender-neutral bathrooms in schools and other public buildings has been equated to racial integration. Those transitioning from one gender to another, the liberal argument goes, need a place to pee as much as the next guy or gal. Besides, the voice of tolerance continues, what could be wrong about individuals with male plumbing sharing toilets with individuals born as females? It’s not as though they’re there to get their rocks off, right?

Think again. The Star reports:

The University of Toronto has decreased the number of gender-neutral bathrooms in one of its colleges after two women became victims of voyeurism when they were filmed while showering.

Toronto Police Const. Victor Kwong said Monday that two women in separate instances at the Whitney Hall residence reported that they saw a cellphone reach over the shower-stall dividers in an attempt to record them. Police have yet to find any information about the culprit, but the investigation is ongoing.

An unidentified percentage of the previously gender-neutral facilities have been changed back to exclusively men’s or ladies’ rooms said, Melinda Scott, the dean of students, who explained:

The purpose of this temporary measure is to provide a safe space for the women who have been directly impacted by the incidents of voyeurism and other students who may feel more comfortable in a single-gender washroom.

Cynics on the left will argue that this is one isolated case and should not be exploited to reverse all the progress they’ve made on behalf of LGBT equality. To which one might note this is the first known case in which perpetrators have been caught. Who knows how many more undetected cases like this there have been and will continue to be?
