Feds: Transgender teen may use boys' locker room
http://www.politico.com ^ | 07/24/2013 | By NIRVI SHAH

Posted on 07/24/2013 10:40:31 PM PDT by redreno

The U.S. Justice and Education departments said Wednesday that a transgender California student who is anatomically female but lives life as a male must be able to use school bathrooms, locker rooms and other facilities designed for boys.

The first-of-its-kind decision from the agencies tasks the Arcadia school district outside Los Angeles to change district policies and practices to accommodate the rising ninth-grade student. Teachers and staff must be trained in how to prevent gender discrimination, and federal agencies will be keeping tabs on the district through at least 2016.

The CA law also protected school districts from being sued for sex assault by students or teachers on students

I think they should just convert a room into a bathroom for the gender confused. It’s stupid to have a girl pretending to be a boy go to the boy’s restroom.

I predict that what happens to this person will not be pretty, and it’s on the heads of these dufus judges.

Surely there will be counter-suits from the parents of biological males who object to their 15 year old sons undressing and showering in a locker room with a girl.

And all these "anti-bullying" efforts aren't really about kids being picked on or physically harassed... it's about "no matter what I do, you must like me, or else you're a bigot."

I'm an 8th grade teacher. This past year, I taught a male who dyed his hair pink with purple highlights. He wore high heel shoes to school one day.

He complained that the other kids kept staring at him. Seriously, you have pink hair and you are surprised at the attention that brings?

At least he had a little group of "fag hag" girls who kept him company. I don't think I taught any boys who would befriend this girl.

whatever happened to?
1. parental rights and responsibilities?
2. local control of local schools?
3. state’s rights?
4. due process of law (this appears to be nothing more than a bureaucratic letter or “diktat” -— no legislative action, no judicial order)
5. laws against child abuse
6. laws against contributing to the delinquency of a minor
7. laws against endangerment of a minor
8. RICO law
9. morals
10 common sense?

what kind of results do the expect from this?

what kind of adults can we expect to result from this kind of “education” of our young?

how is it that government seems to attract so many idiot nut jobs these days? it used to just attract corruptoids

i’m going to bed. somebody smarter than me has to figure a way out of all this krap

This is out of control. This nation has completely lost it. And teens have enough problems without forcing them to deal with this BS.

I mean, all for what? How many “transgender” children could there be in one school? That’s like stating that if one or two kids has to fast on Fridays for their religion then the whole school does. The comfort level of the majority student body be damned if it means one or two children would be made uncomfortable seeing other people eat on Fridays!

What's interesting is that a boy who wants to play "girl" and go into the girl's locker room will be screamed at, if not assaulted.

When a girl wants to play "boy" goes into the boy's locker room, it'll get the showing of a lifetime.

I bet there are several boys who would dig this.

Why?

You really can not be unaware that boys do rape other boys on occasion?

Even if that were untrue the gay/liberal agenda has gotten quite adept at teaching our youth to ignore unpleasant facts.

It is marxism-—to make perversion “normal”-—to condition children-—to sexualize them-—they are forced to ‘think” and be told sexual cr*p-—to corrupt their worldview and be exposed to absurd, immoral, irrational ideas.

It is throwing out Christian Ethics and replacing it with Satanic Ethics (Religion of Ba’al). The NWO needs Christianity erased in the minds of the children——sexualizing them and removing Reason and Logic and Truth-—is how they do it.

They create artificial worlds where “Up is Down”. It destroys Logic and Reason and these kids will believe whatever cr*p their told-—the public schools are conditioning/brainwashing factories to eliminate Virtue.

Without Virtue—there is no Freedom (Socrates).

Wednesday’s resolution is the latest in a series of actions by the Obama administration sending a message to schools about the treatment of LGBT students. The White House has hosted bullying summits on the issue.


Just an example of a transgender.

I doubt that will happen (remember, she's pretending to be a BOY), and as far as seeing her naked body, society would be better off if we weren't so uptight about non sexual nudity.

In many other countries, nudity is more accepted, and I believe they have less of a problem with men who can't keep it in their pants because a woman wore a low cut dress.

However, our 'dear leaders' over here are not interested in having a mature and intelligent society.

So... we get silly crap like this. Boys who are excused from a little 'self control' because an unshapely female who dresses like a male and acts like one, wants to pee in a urinal.

What the boys should do is laugh, but ..... that would probably get them expelled and sued.

What is non-sexual about trannies and gays? Everything is about sex to them. Our society constantly tells people and kids to be sluts, of course this is sexual.

If I weren’t a spiritual person I wouldn’t know what to make of it. I guess I know where it’s all heading, I’ve read the Book, yet I can’t help but wonder why folks seem to so easily go along with it. God warned us and I can only thank Him that He gave me eyes to “see.” I hope and pray that many others’ eyes are opened as well.

The U.S. Government is working hard at turning America’s children into a bunch of freaks.

There is a bright side. Pretty much everything that happens in America is a generational thing. Thus, when we had the Cindy Sheehan "Peace Mom" stuff in the early 00's, it was grown up anti-war '60s kids that made that happen. Presently, everyone seems to be going crazy about sex stuff, which indicates the sex-drenched disco-era (Carter Administration) '70s group is in power. Next up -- thankfully -- are the '80s Ronald Reagan generation, and their hallmark is pretty much traditional values and a disdain for BS. As an observer of the social scene for a lonnnnnng time, I really do feel that the '70s influence is beginning to wane. I encounter more and more pragmatic former '80s kids daily, who exhibit healthy cynicism and a respect for America's traditions, which they see as under fire. This will be VERY interesting to watch over the next few years ...

But the only time we really see someone else nude is when we ourselves are having sex, or other people are (or about to or just have) in the movies. It’s true if you think about it. (Unless you’re a doctor.) So nudity does equate with sex.

But then you’ll say I’m just proving your point I know. So, if we were to decide that our future generations be desensitized to nudity at what age do you think they should become exposed and whose naked bodies should they be exposed to? I understand the concept, I do. I was raised in a time where as a young girl I went to church every Sunday surrounded by women in long dresses and preached to regarding the importance of pureness and modesty and parents who reinforced that concept to the extent I could not come out of my bedroom with just my nightgown on, had to cover with a robe. Was told it was not “appropriate” in front of brothers and father. Imagine my suprise when now hubby’s 15 yr. old neice spent the night and came to watch a movie in our living room with just a t-shirt that didn’t quite cover her underwear. I found out her family, mom, dad and brothers walked around in their bra/underwear pretty regularly and I was shocked lol.

And I’d note that parents continue to send their kids to a government school in the first place. It’s not like they haven’t been warned several times of these kind of shenanigans. Welfare dependency is deeply entrenched in our society. Amazing what people will endure for tax paid daycare.

Cue the “b-but my school is a GOOD government school!” apologists.

So, let me guess...

They want to let 14 and 15 year old boys use the girls locker rooms as long as they “self identify” their gender preference to be female?

What could possibly go wrong?

Oh, that’s an easy question. All the things listed are no longer relevant.

“somebody smarter than me has to figure a way out of all this krap”

Don’t know if I’m smarter, I wouldn’t assume to be. But I might suggest that there really isn’t a way out in the larger sense. We’re at that stage where taking care of our own is the priority. Remember that at a certain point Lot had to decide to follow God and leave the denizens of sodom and gomorrah to their fate.

See tagline.

Indeed. I can see how those going in the other direction could use ladies’ facilities with discretion—as all business is done behind a closed door.

But for someone with female plumbing trying to ‘pass’ in the men’s room? That’s another story.
