Two Canadian women were kicked out of the Okanagan Women’s shelter after they objected to sharing a bedroom with a transgendered man. The two women were told they would have to share a room with a transgender man who recently entered the shelter, when they objected, they were both asked to leave.
“I was uncomfortable with my roommate being transgender, He wants to become a woman, I mean that is his choice but when a man comes into a women’s shelter who still has a penis and genitals, he has more rights than we do.” – Tracey
“Some women have had bad experiences with men so they are fleeing men and now we have a man living there.” – Blaine
Canadian law forbids discrimination against people who are attempting to live as members of the opposite sex. This gives them the legal authority over women and men who prefer to live, eat, sleep, and play with their own sex. The law even supports men who say they are in the process of transitioning and have not undergone any form of sex-change surgery.
The same Canadian law doesn’t protect women who are staying in the shelter to escape men. Some women in the shelter were beaten and battered by men and have no other place to go. The isn’t concerned with them, the law is only concerned with making transgendered individuals feel comfortable at everyone else’s expense. With statistics showing only 1/3rd of 1% of the population identify as transgendered, one must wonder why Canada is so concerned about this small group and not about the other 99.7% of the population.
