Have you heard about the multi-person gender-neutral bathrooms that are popping up all around?
You know, because the trans feel uncomfortable or fear harm when they’re “forced” to use the bathroom that matches the sex on their birth certificate.
Remember, the important words here are multiple occupancy.
We’re not talking about private, single-person restrooms.
We’re talking about restrooms with divided stalls that you can crawl under!
The kids are literally protesting because they made all the bathrooms unisex, like leftists want, and girls are getting sexually harassed in them. These protests should be encouraged, they are doing the right thing.

Newsweek reports that students in England are protesting the multi-person unisex bathrooms because they’ve experienced harassment.
Reportedly, female students have said boys unlock the doors while girls are using the toilets or try to take photographs.
Despite the protests about the unisex restrooms in England, advocates for such spaces have pointed out how sex-segregated toilets can cause difficulties for transgender and gender-nonconforming students.
One mother told Daily Echo about her daughter’s horrifying experience using the multi-occupancy unisex restroom at her school.
“My daughter doesn’t feel comfortable going to the toilet.”
“The boys have got this thing about putting their phone over the toilet or under the doors to try to get pictures of them.”
“I am not happy, I don’t like the fact my daughter is uncomfortable going to the toilet – she’s a child, she’s a minor.”
“I have even contacted the school about it but they haven’t done anything.”
Those who allowed unisex bathrooms at schools, pretending not to know this would invite "incidents" sacrificed girls' safety and everyone's privacy so no one in their community could accuse them of transphobia. It was never about the kids, always about themselves.

Meanwhile, it should come as no surprise that California lawmakers are pushing gender-neutral bathrooms in school as well.
According to Newsmax,
Sen. Josh Newman, D-Calif., introduced SB 760, legislation that would require all K-12 public schools in California to house at least one genderless bathroom for student use.
Newman added: “By requiring all California K-12 schools to provide gender-inclusive restroom facilities on campus, we’ll ensure the well-being of our LGBTQ+ and non-binary students and ensure safer school communities for everyone.”
But it’s not just California.
In Illinois, for example, Democrat Katie Stuart has proposed a bill for multi-person gender-neutral bathrooms in the state.
Patch reported on the bill:
If passed, the bill would allow for any multiple-occupancy restroom to be identified as an all-gender multiple-occupancy restroom and designated for use by any person of any gender.
The measure follows a 2019 bill approved by Gov. J.B. Pritzker that made all single-occupancy bathrooms in Illinois into gender-neutral restrooms.
Look, I can understand single-occupancy bathrooms being gender-neutral.
Multiple occupancy bathrooms, now that’s a different ball game!
Some have taken to Twitter and other social media sites defending the unisex bathrooms, claiming they’re no different from using the bathroom at your own home.
But they’re missing a significant piece of the puzzle.
We’re not talking about single-occupancy bathrooms!
The “gender neutral” toilet in private residences “argument” 🙄.
A private single occupancy bathroom isn’t a comparable argument to public multiple occupancy bathrooms/toilet blocks.
