Women in our building in Mississauga stopped using the pool altogether because we knew there would be a man in a wig walking around the changeroom, genitals swinging, not giving a damn who saw what. This particularly impacted the Middle Eastern women who had been granted a time for them to use the pool exclusively, because he demanded to be able to use it then too and was allowed! Most women who still wanted to use the pool walked to it wearing their pool clothes, and walked back to their units wet, rather than using the pool changerooms. I had two teenage daughters who refused to even swim anymore. I was threatened with arrest if I said anything else to this guy, because apparently I was 'harassing him' by asking that he not expose himself to my daughters and granddaughter. One self -ID guy has held the whole pool hostage.
