New Hampshire college students protest urinal ban in gender debate

Dozens of scholars walked out of their New Hampshire faculty after the district banned urinals in a compromise to a proposal that will have blocked kids from utilizing services primarily based on their gender id.

The college board determined a number of days earlier than the Friday walkout to ban college students at Milford Center College and Milford Excessive College from utilizing urinals or shared areas in locker rooms.

The ban in a city of about 15,000 folks roughly 35 miles (56 kilometers) from Harmony, New Hampshire’s capital, was the fruits of an extended debate about district guidelines about toilet use and gender id. District procedures say college students can entry the toilet that “corresponds to their gender id constantly asserted at college.”
