Does the Toronto District School Board’s latest policy make it OK for a boy to enter the girl’s washroom whenever he ‘feels’ like it?
In another controversial move, the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) has declared that transsexual and ‘gender non-conforming’ students and staff have the right to use whichever washroom they please.
Since the TDSB’s use of the term of ‘gender’ is all about how one feels, this means that any student could enter any student washroom whenever they like – and it would be against the human rights policy to question it. The same goes for staff and their respective washrooms.
While transgender or ‘gender neutral’ bathrooms have popped up across the country – most notably on university campuses – the TDSB isn’t offering an alternative restroom for students.
Instead, customary ‘boys’ and ‘girls’ washrooms will still be in place – and the TDSB has opened those washroom doors to all staff and students at any time.
