Skip to comments.Kentucky proposal: Encounter a transgender person in the wrong restroom, sue for up to $2,500

A proposal in the Kentucky legislature would require that transgender students avoid school restrooms, locker rooms and showers that dont correspond with their sex assigned at birth.
The Kentucky Student Privacy Act, sponsored by Republican state Sen. C.B. Embry, is also designed to punish school administrators who give transgender students access to school facilities designated for the opposite sex.
Parents have a reasonable expectation that schools will not allow minor children to be viewed in various states of undress by members of the opposite biological sex, nor allow minor children to view members of the opposite sex in various states of undress, the bill states.
If a school administrator allowed a transgender student to use a facility designated for the opposite sex or if a school failed to take reasonable steps to prohibit the person encountered from using from facilities designated for use by the opposite biological sex, students would be allowed to sue the school, according to the bill.
Aggrieved students could seek up to $2,500 in damages from the offending school for each time they encountered a person of the opposite sex in school facilities....

The only nit to pick here is that the school employees should pay the fine from their own money, instead of using taxpayer money to fund incompetence or perversion in the school system.
Good for Kentucky.
Is this guy a LBJQASDG Bigot?
“...failed to take reasonable steps...”
Does that mean the school has to post a guard at every locker room and bathroom entrance and ask to see the person’s privates?
Let’s go back to the good old days and expel any dude showing up in girl’s clothing and vice versa. This is a half-hearted feel-good measure that won’t do any good.
How will you tell what is what?
That such a universal societal norm would ever have to be explicitly codified in legislation demonstrates how far our society has deviated from sanity.
I hope more states do the same.
I never understood why the sensibilities of such a few abnormal people trump the sensibilities of the vast majority.
This crap is getting out of hand. It’s going to come down to every person having their dna sequence mapped at birth. I can see everyone carrying genetic id cards in the near future.
Still dont know how your going to police it. Peevs gonna be pervs, especially with the law on their side
I quite agree, if for no other reason, then it lacks a written, rational basis. Though there are many ways to go that way, none of them entirely satisfactory.
Probably the most legally satisfying is to have single person, any gender restrooms. But because many places have a greater need than single restrooms, a clever designer might create a segmented restroom, with public and private areas.
The public area would be more open and obviously monitored, for things like hand washing. Then each single person, any gender restroom would branch off it, as with stalls, but with a double door. The outer door would have the occupied/vacant indicator, then after a ‘vestibule’, an outer area for say a parent, accompanying their child, or an attendant pushing a wheelchair, to wait, the inner door would lead to the stall.
Do you realize the cost of retrofitting every restroom in America to what you just described?

It is all about creating chaos and unrest. Alinski’s methods are to create these situations and use them to gain power.
Better (and cheaper) yet, just replace the door signs with images of the appropriate genitalia.
But don’t boy perverts viewing nude locker room girls have rights too? /s
how does suing the taxpayers supposed to stop these perverted administrators and principles??
a full post opt female to male tranny with an surgically constructed penis would be quite disturbing for the average girl to encounter in the restroom...
And a post opt male to female tranny with no penis, testicles and surgically constructed vagina would be equally disturbing to the average boy
Pre opt.. their just someone in drag
Most places have a family restroom for people with small children. No reason why the pervs can’t use those.
I can see a time when all public restrooms will be individual ones. In the future there will be too many people suing or violence associated with this crap.
simple solution, simply change the labels of all public restrooms to penis or vagina.
