Gender-Neutral Bathrooms Make Sense For San Francisco Elementary


Miraloma Elementary school in San Francisco, California is doing away with gendered bathrooms.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Miraloma's principal Sam Bass explains that there are about eight gender non-conforming students in the school, ranging from tomboy to transgender, and three students in the first grade identify as transgender.

Creating gender-neutral, single-stall restrooms, removes any confusion or discrimination from the bathroom routine at Miraloma.



Bass says that there hasn't been any pushback from parents yet. In fact, the response has been positive.

On the school's website, Bass writes: "Some elementary schools in the district have created one space for a student on the gender spectrum to use. Here at Miraloma, we are the first elementary school in the district to say that's not good enough."
