Embracing gender neutral policies destroys privacy

A Rhode Island law school thinks it's a good idea to institute gender-neutral bathrooms. However, a lawyer with a family values organization says parents should steer clear of sending their kids to this school.

Roger Williams University in Bristol says it instituted this neutral bathroom policy to emulate other "progressive" institutions that accommodate LGBTQ students. Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute says such policies force other students to compromise their privacy rights. 

Dacus, Brad (PJI)“It’s compelling students to sacrifice their privacy to be able to use a bathroom or locker room or even showers without having the confidence that someone from the opposite sex isn’t going to come in and join them as well,” he tells OneNewsNow.

He expects this trend to continue and to increase on campuses throughout the country.

“Up to the point where people become educated and informed as to what’s happening, they can put their foot down to seek what is expected in terms of basic privacy protection,” he says. 

He says the courts need to step in and put a stop to schools putting the demands of homosexual advocates above the privacy rights of others.
