Elementary Schools In Germany to Introduce ‘Third Gender’ Bathrooms
Proposal for the new 'neutral' bathrooms for children who don' identify as boys or girls
Elementary Schools in the Munich, Germany are proposing to implement 'third gender' bathrooms designed for 'gender neutral' children who don't identify as boys or girls.
The proposal for the new 'neutral' bathrooms comes after an external school advisor proposed the concept, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reports.
A Pullach spokeswoman said that the town was not in even in the 'planning stages' of the third gender bathroom.
But the city of Garching said that the plans are already in place, and the third school, in the community of Taufkirchen, said they have consulted with an architectural firm about the idea.
The German schools will be first Bavaria to approve third gender bathrooms.
A spokesman for the Bavarian Ministry of Education confirmed that they were not aware of any other schools with 'third gender' bathrooms int he area.
Third genders will be recognized in government documents, meaning that citizens can now be recognized as male, female, or diverse.
The proposal follows the approval of individuals being allowed to mark the third gender on their passports and other government documents by Germany’s parliament.
The move came after a court ruling that allowed the government the option to reject gender altogether from official identification papers.
Last year, schools in Brighton UK, introduced guidelines that required the installation of sanitary waste disposal units in the children's bathrooms.
The bizarre instructions where incorporated in guidelines published by the local council earlier this month on ‘Taking a Period Positive Approach in Brighton & Hove Schools.'
Back in May of 2018, a Dutch court ruled that lawmakers must acknowledge the assumed need for a third gender option, writing “the time is ripe for recognition of a third gender” and going on to call on lawmakers to produce new legislation.
Also jumping on the “progressive” gender agenda bandwagon, Canada introduced the option of gender “x” on Canadian passports in 2017 supporting the Liberal Party government’s “agenda on gender equality, diversity and inclusion.”
Sweden also introduced numerous schemes revolving around gender identity in schools, one of which was addressing children by the gender-neutral pronoun “hen.”
