EDMONTON, Alberta, August 29, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Although the University of Alberta already has unisex restrooms on campus, the university has agreed to create "all-gender washrooms" for transgender students.

“We see a lot of people on our campus who may be trans- or gender non-conforming who do have issues with the washrooms because they are forced to act on this [sexual] binary," said Melanie Alexander of the school's "Gender-Based Violence Prevention Project," according to a CBC report.

"It’s this really vulnerable place to be when you don’t feel like you have places that reflect your gender expression,” she added.

The school has replaced the signs on all single-toilet washrooms, such as those that are wheelchair accessible, with ones that show both male and female figures in addition to a wheelchair.

The university will also be providing a map of the "all-gender" washrooms to students when they return to school next week.

The Gender Based Violence Prevention Project (GBVPP). which describes itself as a "new project of the Students' Union that promotes a campus free of gender based violence," works in conjunction with campus homosexual groups.

GBVPP is funded by Status of Women Canada.

While some of the washrooms on campus will still be designated for men or women, if the federal government's controversial transgender "bathroom bill" is successfully reintroduced after the new session of Parliament begins, it may become illegal to prevent a male student who calls himself transgendered to use a campus restroom intended for women.

Bill C-279, which seeks to include “gender identity” and “gender expression” as protected rights in the hate crimes sections of the Canadian Human Rights Act and the Criminal Code, was before the Senate, but failed to pass third and final reading before the summer break. Prime Minister Stephen Harper's recently announced decision to prorogue Parliament.

Designate a restroom as the Bradley Manning Powder Room and be done with it, make sure there’s a bidet in it!

Why bother with restrooms at all?

Simply take a dump wherever you are and be done with it.

That would be the least discriminatory way of solving the problem.

Not a bad idea. They do that with dropping babies in much of the world, and who could discriminate against those people!

This is the solution: Rest rooms labeled Men, Women and Other.

Let the pervs have their own.

The solution is simple. We need “XX” restrooms for those chromosomes, and “XY” for those with any genetic combination that includes a Y. That way we are not questioning the gender they pretend to identify with, but we are insisting that they match their own plumbing to the plumbing in use, at least for those who have not been surgically mutilated.
