A prime “safe space” for girls to be girls in the U.K. now allows male members who “identify” as female to use girls’ shower facilities — in the name of tolerance, of course.
The century-old Girls Guides (the U.K.’s Girl Scouts) have officially instructed their leadership to allow members who are biologically male but identify as female to have access to girls’ changing rooms, bathroom facilities (including showers), and sleeping quarters for overnight trips. Plus, this rule applies to all members, ages five to 25.
As reported by The Telegraph, the new rules state that trans “girls” can “‘share accommodation with other young members if they wish and use the same facilities.”
The new guidance, issued on the group’s UK website, says that “the use of gendered facilities,” including showers, toilets and changing rooms, “can cause anxiety”.
It adds: “Members are allowed to use the facilities of the gender they self-identify as.”
Ironically, this is the same organization which claimed just last year that they provide “girls a place where they can really be themselves with other girls and share the experience of growing up as a girl in today’s world.”
Apparently, this girls’ space will also include the occasional penis in little Suzie’s shower.
But what if little Suzie is a bigot and isn’t “comfortable” with boys in her shower, you ask? Well, she is officially “encouraged” to ask her group leader for special accommodations for her. No guarantees, of course, but, good luck, bigoted Suzie!
And it gets better: parents might not be notified about little Suzie sharing a shower with a male! According to the new rules, the Guides have declared that it is not “best practice” to tell parents about biological males using such girls’ facilities.
Conservative MP for Monmouth in South Wales David Davies provided an ounce of logic to the insanity, blasting the trans move by the organization.
“If transgender girls who are physically male are going to be sharing facilities, it’s going to make some girls threatened and uncomfortable and the Guides shouldn’t be doing that,” he said.
