    Los Angeles (AFP) - A California elementary school has become one of the first in the country to phase out gendered bathrooms, a move in line with a national trend to recognize the needs of transgender people.


    The principal at Miraloma Elementary School in San Francisco said the decision to do away with separate bathrooms for boys and girls was in part to acknowledge about eight gender non-conforming students.

    "Not only do we want all of our students to feel safe... we want them to understand systematic equality for everyone," Sam Bass said in a statement. "We are teaching them a valuable lesson."

    The move comes as schools and universities across the country grapple with how to deal with transgender students, an issue recently cast into the spotlight by Caitlyn Jenner, the Olympian and reality TV star formerly known as Bruce Jenner.

    I think everyone should be happy and safe, especially in schools, but I think putting young boys and girls into the same bathrooms is not the best thing to do, buy hey, I don't know, I don't understand this world today anymore. I grew up totally different, so my opinion is probably not that best.

    I had a job interview abt 3 years ago at a place with unisex bathrooms. I didn't want the job and the bathroom situation sealed it for me. Not interested in an Ally McBeal type of workplace.

    Yes...very good. It's a problem in our society that women feel threatened every time a man follows them into the bathroom.

    They should also curb any primitive minded parent's fear by assigning a random stranger in there as a bathroom attendant...that hands out candy.

    California needs to slide off into the fucking Pacific. I am not into this whole "end of days" bullshit, but man. It's starting to feel like it.

    as long as there are stalls, I don't get the concern. I also think we forget there was really no such thing as a "ladies" room until there was a push for separate facilities for women in the work place over 100 years ago
