To the Editor,
Re: School trustees urged to investigate gender-neutral washrooms, March 5.
I was upset to see Nanaimo school district was considering creating gender-neutral washrooms in our schools.
This unnecessary consideration has the danger of adding additional costs to the school district.
This will likely act as a precedence for government to mandate government facilities, pools and private businesses to install gender-neutral washrooms, too, in the future.
As well they may force the right of the opposite sex to inhabit your washroom based on the way they feel.
It is better to encourage children to function in bathrooms as their true gender dictates so after they are finished school they will be able to function in other washrooms.
