The British government has made it mandatory for all public buildings to have single-sex toilets, a separate ladies and a separate gents space, halting the trend of having unisex toilets where both men and women can enter.
The move away from ‘gender-neutral’ toilets in hospitals, schools, offices and entertainment spaces is believed to have been signed off on by ministers, after Conservative Party Equalities Minister Kemi Badenoch made the case for it being a legal necessity.
The move will mean that all planning and building regulations will be required to include a self-contained space for women-only facilities, as well as the introduction of partitions in unisex bathrooms already in buildings.
A government source told The London Telegraph that “It is vital that women feel safe and comfortable when using public facilities and that there is a greater emphasis on the provision that is focused on dignity, privacy, tolerance and respect for all.”
“These changes will stop the march of ‘universal’ and forced sharing of spaces – with a focus on guaranteeing privacy for all,” the source added.
Women’s rights group Fair Play For Women had lobbied the government to make the changes, noting that “Sex-specific toilets are universally recognized as making a positive contribution to the lives of women and girls,” adding that “They are important factor which contributes to female emancipation.”
The group also noted that single sex spaces are key for the “basic safety of women, reducing their risk of assault, rape and murder.”
The group also urges that “Trans-inclusion policies are dictating that trans-identifying children and young people should have access to the facilities and sports of their self-declared gender rather than their sex. This has the effect of making such facilities and activities mixed sex. This is much more to the detriment of girls than boys.”
“The UK Department of Education mandates sex-segregated toilets and changing rooms from the age of eight in schools. Trans inclusion policies are being promoted and adopted, with the best intentions, which undermine this requirement,” the group further warns, adding that “Elsewhere in the UK, the adoption of mixed changing rooms has led to increased risk for women of sexual assault.”
Of course, the move to cement single sex toilets in law was instantly declared ‘transphobic’ by the pronoun mob:
