The University of Western Ontario is revamping some existing single stall washrooms in the arts and social sciences areas on campus, and investing in some signage to make transgendered peoples feel more welcome.
"These bathrooms are single-stall bathrooms with a universal sign to provide safety and security for all individuals," said Cara Eng, the student council's vice-president of campus issues.Inevitably, some group is going to take offense.
Dwayne Mills, who sits on the Pride Festival London committee and often performs shows in drag, said going into the gender-neutral bathroom could "out" people unnecessarily.Of course, there are still gender specific options available to the community, but never mind, it's the fault of the heteronormatives.
