i luv boyz. i love how they can still look hot lounging in sweats all day. i love how they run their hand through their hair and smile a big smile and how their eyes crinkle and their teeth show. i love when they wear soft hoodies and tight jeans. i love the smell of aftershave on them in the morning. i love leather jackets boys and snapbacks boys and boys who are feminine and boys who are masculine. i love boys who wear soft shades of lipgloss and boys who paint their nails dark colors. i love metal boys and pop boys. loud boys and quiet boys. i just love boys so much!!!!!
The Canadian National Exhibition has become the latest Toronto organization to introduce gender-neutral washrooms and signage, but advocates say there is still more to be done to promote inclusivity.
The new portable washrooms, which will be fully rolled out over five years, feature signs on each stall door with the saying, “We don’t care,” and picture a half-female and half-male individual merged together.
Virginia Ludy, the CNE’s general manager, said she originally found the signs online and wanted to use them for the new facilities.
“I just absolutely love them because they’re so easy to understand – anybody can use those washrooms,” Ludy said.
She also said gender-specific washrooms have resulted in long lines, so Ludy hopes this will help address that issue.
Jack Hixson-Vulpe, an education and training specialist with The 519 Centre – a local organization dedicated to providing services and community spaces for the LGBTQ community, said seeing gender-neutral washrooms and signage is a good indication that the organization is thinking about providing safer, more inclusive spaces.
Hixson-Vulpe said gender-specific washrooms are still difficult for many individuals, such as those who identify as transgender or two-spirited.
