I am still trying to think this one through. Just what is the purpose behind making those with a different anatomy, that being male and female, forced into showering and otherwise dressing in the same locker room? The bathroom was a stretch for me, but the government is getting into this one? Are they really trying to stick one in our eye or what? Tell me what you think. The good news otherwise is all of this absurdity is getting to the electorate. Early returns from yesterday’s elections have given the GOP more wins, but then again, we don’t seem to be able to make the most of it. Here we go:
A school district near Chicago, Palatine 211, provides numerous accommodations for transgender students. The district calls the students by requested names, honors selected gender (including allowing them to play on the sports teams of the gender they identify as belonging to), and permits them to use single-sex bathrooms, since stalls ensure privacy.
But the federal government has decided that the district is still guilty of violating Title IX, the law prohibiting sex-based discrimination, over certain locker room restrictions.
According to the Associated Press, “District 211 has 30 days to change the policy, or risk losing millions in federal funding.”
As Cates, the superintendent, puts it bluntly in his statement: “The students in our schools are teenagers, not adults, and one’s gender is not the same as one’s anatomy. Boys and girls are in separate locker rooms—where there are open changing areas and open shower facilities—for a reason.”
