Family First Comment: “Ironically, (the mayor) added, “Every New Yorker should feel safe in our city.”
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio issued an executive order giving men the right to use women’s bathrooms and locker rooms, and vice versa.
The mayor’s edict is called, “Access to Single-Sex City Facilities Consistent With Gender Identity and Expression.” It means that all New York City single-gender facilities must accommodate both sexes, including city buildings and offices, parks, children’s playgrounds, swimming pools, and more, all access given without showing identification or any proof of gender.
Mayor de Blasio declared that transgenders using opposite sex bathrooms and locker rooms “is a fundamental human right that should not be restricted or denied to any individual.”
Ironically, he added, “Every New Yorker should feel safe in our city.” Critics question whether the mayor includes those who do not feel safe in public showers and toilets that the opposite sex may undress in and use, or if he only refers to making the gender confused feel more comfortable in their ailment.
“Mayor Bill de Blasio’s executive order suffers from three fatal flaws,” Stephen P. Hayford, Communications Director for New York’s Family Research Foundation, told LifeSiteNews. “First, like Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s recent transgender regulation, the Mayor’s order addresses an issue that should have been handled (if at all) through legislative action.”
