While North Carolina wrestles with the fallout from its common-sense bathroom law, Hot Air’s Jazz Shaw highlighted two of the most predictable news stories of the year. First, here’s a lovely tale from Seattle:
A man claimed a right to use a women’s locker room at a public swimming pool after his partial undressing there caused alarm.
According to Seattle Parks and Recreation, women alerted staff at Evans Pool staff when a man wearing swim trunks entered the women’s locker room and took off his shirt.
When staff told him to leave, the man reportedly said “the law has changed and I have a right to be here.”
Though he was relying on a new Washington state rule that allows people to choose bathrooms based on “gender identity,” no one asked him if he identified as female. Indeed, how can you possibly ask such a question without enraging the social justice warriors? It’s the new bathroom honor code.
But it turns out that “honor” is a value alien to creeps and perverts. Just ask the University of Toronto:
The University is temporarily changing its policy on gender-neutral bathrooms after two separate incidents of “voyeurism” were reported on campus September 15 and 19. Male students within the University’s Whitney Hall student residence were caught holding their cellphones over female students’ shower stalls and filming them as they showered.
Melinda Scott, dean of students at the University of Toronto, told The Daily Wire that campus police had been contacted immediately and worked with residence staff to “support impacted students and ensure the safety of the Residences.”
Transgender and unisex bathroom regulations empower terrible people. Sexual predators are diabolical, and the worst thing the law can do is to make access to women and girls in their most vulnerable and private moments easy for predators. It’s insane.
