Chicago Public Schools (CPS) is now mandating that all schools in the district adopt new signage that will in effect make restrooms gender-neutral, calling the initiative a “big step forward for gender equity.”

“ICYMI: We’re requiring all schools to adopt new signage to make our restrooms more inclusive. This is a big step forward for gender equity for our students and staff,” CPS tweeted.

Students will now be allowed to use whatever restroom they choose that aligns with their gender identity. Many parents and students alike are outraged over the woke move.

Starting last Wednesday, all schools in the district, including elementary schools, are being forced to display new signage outside restrooms. An example could be a sign that reads, “Men’s +: This restroom has both urinals and stalls. All who feel comfortable are welcome to use this restroom.” Or possibly, “This is a gender-neutral restroom with multiple stalls, it is open to users of any gender identity and expression.”

CPS officer Camie Pratt commented in a video, “All CPS students and staff will have fair and equitable access to bathroom facilities that align with their gender identity.” She also stated that the signage will “make it clear that all restrooms are open for use by anyone who feels comfortable and will increase gender equality for all.”

Pratt remarked that the CPS Office of Student Protections and Title IX is “working on a long-term plan” to make the signage more permanent. But it should be noted that parents have not been consulted on any of this and lawsuits are almost a certainty following the implementation of the requirement.

The announcement was ripped by many on social media.

Twitter user Saying the Quiet Part Out Loud quipped, “@ChiPubSchools Yes, we did miss it. How/when were parents engaged in this decision?”

James L. snarked on Twitter, “Yup, the absolute biggest issue facing the Chicago public schools today.”

User Andi V. was very concerned over the development, “School restrooms are a prime location for harassment and bullying. I am concerned for female students’ safety and self-esteem. Parents need to weigh in before this goes district-wide! Why not designate 1-2 gender neutral restrooms/school while keeping the rest gender specific?”

User Aaron Mann tweeted, “Boys using the girls bathroom. What could possibly go wrong?”

And many more lined up to express opinions and outrage over the new policy in Chicago:
