YMCA privacy and safety
The YMCA of the Greater Twin Cities is allowing individuals to choose whichever restroom or locker room they want to use, regardless of their biological sex. Allowing transgender individuals to use the facility of their choice creates a loophole that gives other men and even sexual predators who want to harm women and girls easy access to the women's facilities
We are not comfortable with this. Our right to privacy is being violated, and our safety is being compromised.
Many Twin Cities YMCA facilities are not constructed efficiently to accommodate this practice in a safe manner that respects our privacy. We ask that the YMCA reconsider this stance or else consider waiting until better accommodations with sufficient private showering and changing spaces are provided.
