Evening Standard 6 April 2017
Family First Comment: Hilarious.
Signs outside the London art centre’s cinema screen have been changed to say “gender-neutral with cubicles” and “gender-neutral with urinals”. But the new facilities were slammed as “totally ridiculous” by broadcaster Samira Ahmed on Tuesday, who told the Barbican “women have enough trouble with queues without imposing your politics”.
That’s a great line, isn’t it. Women have enough trouble with queues without imposing your politics 😊
But this same scenarios is happening in NZ. More details shortly

The Barbican Centre will carry out a review after a furious row was sparked by its decision to scrap some male and female toilets in favour of “gender neutral” loos.

Signs outside the London art centre’s cinema screen have been changed to say “gender-neutral with cubicles” and “gender-neutral with urinals”.

But the new facilities were slammed as “totally ridiculous” by broadcaster Samira Ahmed on Tuesday, who told the Barbican “women have enough trouble with queues without imposing your politics”.

The 48-year-old, who works on BBC Radio 4’s Front Row, tweeted: “Dear Barbican, women’s loos labelled “gender neutral” so full of men who ALSO have a ‘urinal’ to themselves. Totally ridiculous.

“Why do women lose our space to men!? All women can use ladies loos. This isn’t the USA.

“I have asked some @ Barbican Centre staff who say they pointed out that turning ladies into gender neutral loos was going to be a mistake.”

The Barbican Centre admitted on Thursday there were “practical limitations” in the way the toilets had been implemented, and added it would be “seeking advice and undertaking further consultation.”
