A popular women’s only pool in Sydney’s eastern suburbs is facing a backlash after saying that transgender customers would only be allowed in if they’ve had gender reassignment surgery.
However, there appeared to be some support for the pool management amid a wave of criticism.
“Thank you for upholding the rights of women and girls,” one commenter wrote.
“Many thanks McIver’s. Women and girls value the opportunity to have spaces that are for women and girls only. These spaces are rare and it hurts no one,” added another.
