DAILYKENN.com -- Let's get this right: Taxpayers fund a park where women (only) may bathe in an outdoor pond?
Yep. It's called Lakewood Ladies Bathing Pond.
Not to worry. Taxpayers also fund a bathing pond for men and, no, I don't care to know what goes on there. It's called Highgate Men's Bathing Pond.
There's also a mixed bathing pond.
The ponds are part of Hampstead Heath. And by "bathing pond" we assume they mean "swimming pool."
Gender distinctions are anathema to cultural Marxist dogma (aka, "sacred science") that requires all human be essentially identical for it's bourgeoisie-vs-proletariat paradigm to work. Think of pounding a round hole over a square peg then declaring, "It fits!"

A London bathing pond described as a “female sanctuary” has been thrust into the center of a major gender dispute.
Some female bathers say they disapprove of a new policy put into effect late last year at Hampstead Heath park that allows transgender people to enter the women-only area, including its changing rooms.
"The space where women felt free and relaxed is now a space where they are feeling uncomfortable," Amy Desir, a 30-year-old mom and opponent of the measure, told the AFP.
The news agency reports that women have been bathing at the pond for decades and several were topless on a recent day.
"For many women who come here, you're in your own little world," Ann Haidari, a 51-year-old teaching assistant, told the AFP. "I love the fact that it's very much a female sanctuary. It's a rare thing."
Others believe the outcry to the new policy is being exaggerated.
"You don't think anybody who's a blokey bloke would have the balls to come here," said Anna Russell, a 53-year-old writer.
Yet Desir claims a “man who was trying to wear a costume” joined the female bathers one day.
City of London officials say “all lifeguards and managers at Hampstead Heath ponds have taken transgender awareness training courses."
