In Bow to NBA's 'Inclusive' Values, China to Install Gender-Neutral Bathrooms at Xinjiang Labor Camps

Bowing to pressure from NBA executives to foster an environment more consistent with the league's stated values of "respect, inclusion, and diversity," the Chinese government has agreed to install gender-neutral bathrooms at its forced-labor detention facilities in Xinjiang province, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

The Chinese concession is a much-needed public-relations victory for the NBA following a damning report on several league-sponsored training academies in China where players were physically abused and denied promised educational opportunities. A former NBA employee compared the atmosphere at one such facility in Xinjiang to that of "World War II Germany."

Chinese state media reported that authorities in Xinjiang, where more than a million Uyghur Muslims are confined in government-run concentration camps and subject to a ruthless campaign of ethnic cleansing, have also declared that facilities such as copper mines, torture dungeons, enhanced interrogation cells, and reeducation grottos would no longer be segregated according to gender identity.
