Edmonton Catholic school board supports “transgender” washrooms

From MercatorNet:

Staff, students and family members should be able to use bathrooms and change rooms which are “congruent to their gender identity”. Schools need to provide this both on campus and on excursions and outings. … Unsurprisingly, the trustees of the Edmonton Catholic school board ended up accepting the principle of transgender inclusivity. Commenting on the government’s new guidelines, the board’s chair, Marilyn Bergstra, told the media: “My wish would be that every single word in that document is adopted.” More.

Reality check: It’s safe to say that today anyone who votes for a progressive government votes for partial birth abortion, (eventual) non-consensual euthanasia (possibly with falsified death certificates), clampdowns on freedom of expression, and abridgement of historic protections for women (for “cultural” reasons), never mind traditional expectations like washroom privacy. At this point, I have very limited sympathy because the trajectory is quite clear. If your public sector union job matters more to you than life, liberty, or privacy, well, you chose, right? You had a vote. Many who suffer around the world didn’t.

    Never put a woman in charge of your child’s education.

      Except that the person in charge of this egregious policy — of allowing self-identified transgendered boys into girls bathrooms — is a man, the highly-loved Alberta Minister of Education David Eggen. Here is his signed press release endorsing boys entering girls bathrooms:

      BillyW, you will always be a woman hater, there is no denying that. But hate-mongering often leads to deliberate falsification of empirical facts. The person in charge of education in Alberta is a man, not a woman. I just want put out the actual facts.

      • The problem is not women or men. The problem is an asinine “progressive” intellectual matrix.

        “Progressivism” is like crack cocaine. It feels nice for a while. By the time you realize you are addicted, you have a big problem.

        The “tranny” issue is a good example.

        How do “progressives” tell their daughters not to worry about the big hairy man in the bathroom.

        “Don’t worry honey, she/he identifies as a woman.”

    The Rebel Media have a good discussion of this outrage, on the latest Ezra Levant show:

    There is a petition for people to sign against this horrid anti-female policy. One hopes there will be a well-organized grassroots set of demonstrations, petitions and the like against the Alberta NDP government on this. One hopes that lots of bumper stickers, leaflets, etc. will be circulated against the NDP, from now to the next election.

    Would it be too much to ask that you proof-read before posting? It takes away the credibility of this site when you don’t.

    And it’s embarrassing to read.

        Surely you can see for yourself? It’s plain to see.

          No doubt there were some on the Titanic who found time to complain about the deteriorating room service as well. 😉

            Yes, and many of those people didn’t explain the problem, creating needless work for others.

          • Miss Trixie

            Allow me to explain. This is a great site and a lot of people read and post here. Should BCF’s site garner a sudden onslaught of well-deserved attention, I would rather have the attention drawn to the important, well-written posts and comments rather than mocked due to unintended errors within.

            I applaud your motives but not your methods.
            A quick private email to BCF would have sufficed

    Cramming the news in 2015-2016 with nonstop leftist pro transgender bullshit was already seen to be in the marxist planning process schedule several years back yet our supposed politicians and family defenders on the right are acting like this is a complete surprise. Are they all fakers or just lazy idiots?

    Parent’s reaction?

    More mind control and indoctrination. You will believe that male is a female, comrade. You will believe it, or else.
