Why do we have separate washrooms and change rooms in the first place? Is it the same reason we don’t let kids see nudity on TV? It’s seems reasonable to me that more conservative people don’t want their children seeing genitalia of the opposite see. This would seem more pronounced in the teenage years. I believe that gays and transgendered should have equal rights, but having co-ed washrooms does step on the rights of those that have more traditional views on nudity. How can this be managed? What if a guy or girl pretends to be transgendered, only so he or she can go in the washroom or change room to have sex.

Hey Mac how about for physical ed change rooms which are also bathrooms. Should the transgender boys change and shower with the girls? That would be interesting. You can only dress yourself up so far and then there is no hiding you are a boy.


Transgendered issue is completely ridiculous. So much misinformation. The male to female preoperative Ts will want,to use the girls bathroom. These boys are on their way to becoming girls so they pose no sexual threat to girls. The female to male Ts will probably also want to use the girls washroom ESP if they feel intimidated or discriminated against by boys. So most young preoperative Ts will use the girls washroom posing no sexual threat to the girls and the girls will probably be less discriminatory because that is their nature. Unless of course they are stoked up by some fearful, ignorant parent and told they are in danger of being sexually assaulted in the toilet.


I like that forced eviction. It means if you have a truly disturbed and disturbing co-owner you can force then out just like a landlord would for the sake of the greater sanity of the group and the protection the property. And that this individual nuisance cannot use the court system as a cudgel to torment other owners. The courts should have acted before the bill got up to $200.000 though.

BPOM: I would say your opinions do not fit with Canadian values less so than any immigrants. You should be deported. Only problem there is no country that would take you.


You have to love the ‘tolerance’ on this blog. It is great for guys to dress like women, have our schools become transgender sanctuaries but if someone dare speak their native language or build a house not to your tastes those people should be put in front of a firing squad.

“>The Pew Research Center found in its global survey that only 21 per cent of the residents of China “approve” of homosexuality, compared to 80 per cent of Canadians.”

These people are incompatible with Canadian values and are not fit to be admitted to Canada as immigrants.


@#79 Guy Smile
I concur, it is interesting how populations adapt to their surroundings.
You need look no farther than countless prison populations and the purported high proportion of gay activity there.
I can’t say I understand how it happens, but there is no denying it is a phenomenon in nature. That is what Guy Smiley is talking about.
(And now back to real estate…)


There’s a big difference between wanting to be left alone with beliefs and values and wanting to discriminate against others because their beliefs and values make you uncomfortable.

@#84 True, tolerance is a two way street… not a one way street.

I would join an army and lay my life on the line so that a homosexual could live their life with no interference. I would do the same for any socially conservative or religious family that wanted to be left alone in their beliefs and values, with no interference.

Anything less is hypocrisy.

To the “tolerant” posters on this blog I say.
“if you’re so tolerant, why can’t you be tolerant of intolerant people?”


come on guys, the chinese are very accepting of gays and alternative lifestyles. why wouldn’t they be? have you seen evidence to the contrary?

@80: “What was the progress on gay rights in Canada between 1950 and 2000? It was glacial.”

Canada made tremendous progress in human rights on all fronts (women, minorities, gays) during this period. I could write a book about it, but since lots of people have, I’ll just give you one quote which says it all regarding gay rights:

“There’s no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation.”

Pierre Trudeau, 1967


George, congratulations on using Google. I actually live in Tanjong Rhu in Singapore. What isn’t mentioned is that when the cruisers went to court the judge criticized the police for entrapment. They were fined only because they didn’t petition for dismissal, in which case they would have been acquitted. Singapore today has a huge gay scene. Sure the country is still a bit conservative but it’s changing far quicker than Canada did. What was the progress on gay rights in Canada between 1950 and 2000? It was glacial. Is your only defense against the rise of Asia that you’re incrementally ahead of Asians in your view in transgenders, an opinion which you probably only acquired a month ago? This moral exhibitionism on gender, unions and education may make you feel all warm inside, but it’s insulating you from the reality… Read more »

I never said the switch was a choice. Early populations don’t choose their diet, they adapt to eat whats available. There are more things in heaven and earth, Devore, than your currently popular theories on gender identity and sexuality.
