“You don’t even have to wear a dress!”: Lyle Shelton on gender neutral toilets

Lyle Shelton from the Australian Conservatives has expressed his opposition to gender neutral bathrooms, and decried that some of the people entering the women’s bathroom may not even be wearing dresses.

Shelton, who headed the failed ‘No’ campaign against marriage equality, says the AFL’s decision to make several bathrooms at Etihad Stadium gender neutral during last weekend Pride match is one of the consequences he warned about during the marriage debate.

“We said the LGBTIQ gender agenda would continue marching through society.” Shelton says in the video post on Facebook.

The aspiring politician said he was concerned that people at the recent Pride round were told they could use the bathroom that best matched their gender identity.

“What the heck does that mean?” Shelton asks, “Go to the toilet that best meets your gender identity or expression, this means that if a bloke decides he wants to be a woman and identify as a woman, he can make that decision without a sex change operation, no surgery, no hormones, no puberty blockers, or anything like that, he can just decide in his mind that he wants to be a woman – and then walk into the women’s toilets.”

“You don’t even have to wear a dress, this is just how ridiculous this is.” Shelton said.

Shelton said that allowing transgender people to access bathrooms that correspond with their external gender was putting women at risk. “These are no longer safe spaces for women.”

The Australian Conservatives candidate said he didn’t think people with gender dysphoria would be committing acts of sexual assault of voyeurism, but it was opening a door for sexual predators to attack women.

Shelton says it is ironic that LGBTI people would celebrate the Pride round at Ethiad stadium, given that it is named after an airline from the United Arab Emirates.
