Eleven states, including Arizona, Texas and Wisconsin, have filed suit to block the Obama administration’s “guidance” on the right of transgender students to use the school rest rooms and locker rooms of their choice.
The directive would “turn workplaces and educational settings across the country into laboratories for a massive social experiment, flouting the democratic process, and running roughshod over common-sense policies protecting children and basic privacy rights,” the lawsuit charges.
Oklahoma legislators are considering a bill that would let a student demand a non-transgender restroom, locker room or shower — persons of the same anatomical sex only –as a “religious accommodation.” A private room would not be acceptable.
An award-winning St. Paul charter school is ripping out urinals and creating “gender-neutral restrooms” — at the cost of thousands of dollars, after being sued by parents of a kindergartener, who’s since transferred, reports the Daily Signal.
I predict schools will create private rest rooms and changing stalls in locker rooms to avoid conflict. It will be costly. Will it be worth it?
How many kids are transgender? Nobody knows, reports the New York Times, but it’s almost certainly less than 1 percent.
