Yale Sues Connecticut To Expand Number of Gender Neutral Bathrooms Despite Building Code

Yale Sues Connecticut To Expand Number of Gender Neutral Bathrooms Despite Building Code

Gender Neutral bathrooms not counted under state building code for compliance with minimum number of restrooms

Given the fact that Connecticut is a very liberal state, this will probably be cleared up soon.

Reuters reports via NBC News:

Yale University Sues Connecticut Over Gender-Neutral Bathrooms

Yale University has sued the state of Connecticut over rules it says limit the number of gender-neutral bathrooms it can designate on campus, the latest skirmish in the broader U.S. fight about gender identity.

The Ivy League school said in the lawsuit it wants to designate all single-occupant restrooms at its law school as gender neutral, but the plan would run afoul of the state building code, which does not count gender-neutral bathrooms when it assesses whether a public building has enough toilets.

The suit was filed on Friday in Connecticut Superior Court in New Haven, after the university received complaints from law school students. Yale has asked the state to drop requirements that single-user restrooms have an assigned gender label.

Restrooms have become a flashpoint in the fight over transgender rights, following North Carolina passed a law last year requiring people to use public restrooms that corresponded with their birth gender. The measure was partially repealed in March after the state lost hundreds of millions of dollars from economic boycotts.

Have no fear: Yale will tell the merely elected government what’s what.

Cat holes are gender neutral….get a shovel.
