Petition Abolish unisex toilets in primary and secondary schools
In my child's school the toilets have become unisex. The school gave parents and children no notice prior to this happening. My child was shocked when a boy walked into the toilet. The girls in the school do not like it and some boys and girls have stopped using the toilet. This is a health concern.
These toilets are not like the ones we have at home with the sink, bin toilet in one room behind a closed door. There is a gap at the bottom and the top, there is no privacy.
Both genders will be going through hormonal & bodily changes. Some girls start their menstrual cycle early. Will they not be embarrassed to use a shared toilet
Both girls & boys have the right to explore their bodies in their own privacy amongst the same gender. The unisex toilets restrict this development which is sad.
