In effect would that not mean boys and girls would be in the same restroom? Do you see any problem with that?

Doesn't surprise me that they would pull a stunt like this at a school that is 100% minority, 83% economically disadvantaged, and where 71% of the students fail to read proficiently. I would suggest the alternative approach of letting the largest majority of students possible enjoy their childhood unpolluted by fringe-oriented culture wars inspired by reality TV, and the teachers and administrators focusing all of their efforts on giving students a solid education in subjects that will make them successful and happy adults. I feel very sorry for these students.

I can't wait to go to a bathroom full of thin pretty women.
Actually maybe not as what if one of them makes a horrific stench you'll lose the sugar& spice and everything nice.

Would you guys feel comfortable having your daughters use a gender-neutral group bathrooms? The issue isn't the gender confused which make up a small percentage of a small percentage. The issue is that you're opening the door for sexual predators to legally use the same bathrooms as your young daughter, willfully putting her in harm's way just to cater to the mental illness of a very small minority. Anyone who supports this gender-neutral nonsense has no business being a parent. You've already failed your kids. You're a disgusting failure of a human being.

Everyone who doesn't want anatomical males in the locker room with them is not a bigot. I may not speak for all women but I guarantee that the majority of women and girls don't want to share locker rooms with anatomical males nor are they OK with poorly written laws that roll back protections against predators. Too bad many are bullied into silence and consent by misogynists like you who accuse them of being hateful bigots for simply desiring safety.

And I never breathed a word about lesbian/gay/bisexual people before your attempt to lump them in with this very specific issue fails. Do you know the meaning of "equal treatment?" It has nothing to do with penises in female showers. Your assertion that this is about equal treatment is actually a slap in the face to real civil rights issues. Trans don't speak for all LGB people either, and I know for a fact that many are rightfully disgruntled that they're lumped together. I actually campaigned on behalf of gay marriage for HRC (that's Human Rights Campaign folks, not Hillary Rodham Clinton lol) years ago but hey make up what you want in your head about people. It's so much easier than thinking critically.
The hell would you know about critical thinking? You can't point me to a single case of a man in dress, pretending to be a woman, molesting a girl in a public bathroom but you're ready to lump all trans people into the sex offender category anyway. That is objectively stupid and yes, bigoted.

At this point I'm choosing to believe that you're just a troll.

Because you have no valid argument and choose to call names instead.

You're stuck up on transgenders being sex offenders and ignoring the real issue. No one is arguing that the .001% of the population that walks around confused about their gender is going to attack someone in the bathroom.

The danger is from sex offenders being given free reign -- thanks to this shortsighted, pandering, bulls**t PC nonsense -- to hang out in the same bathrooms as helpless young women. Any sexual degenerate can claim that they're confused about their gender and go creeping around in bathrooms looking for victims, and there's not a damn thing you can do about it because you decided it's better to protect the feelings of a fringe minority instead of protecting the safety and well-being of the helpless majority.

Give yourself a pat on the back, PC champ.

That's a completely moronic argument. Nothing is stopping sexual predators from sneaking into public restrooms right now, you troll.

SNEAKING isn't the same as LEGALLY ALLOWED TO HANG OUT THERE.

A grown man hanging out in a women's bathroom is going to arouse suspicion and have the cops called on him. A grown man hanging out in a gender-neutral bathroom is legally entitled to be there and there's not a damn thing you can do about it.

The fact that you can't see the difference speaks volumes about your grasp of basic common sense.

Security tightens after dispute over gender-neutral bathroom at South LA school - MyNewsLA.com

Now more tax money spent on security over this too !

Also the whole point of this was

“People want to be comfortable when they go pee because of being harassed by other students, because that’s something that does happen on campus sometimes.”

If there are bullies or people harassing people how will that problem be solved by having them use the same bathroom ??
