No Recourse for Girls Harassed by Transgender Student
CBN ^ | October 11, 2013 | CBNNews.com

Posted on 10/11/2013 5:08:23 PM PDT by xzins

The push for radical transgender rights in schools is trumping privacy rights at one Colorado high school.

A male student at Florence High School who claims to be a transgender has been harrassing girls in the bathroom. When parents complained, school officials said the boy's rights as a transgender trumped their daughters' privacy rights.

As the controversy grew, some students were threatened with being kicked off athletic teams or charged with hate crimes if they continued to voice concerns.

The Pacific Justice Institute sent the school a letter warning against squelching privacy rights.

"We're not going to stand by and let 99.7 percent of our students lose their privacy and free speech rights just because .3 percent of the population are gender-confused," the PJI wrote.

PJI is demanding assurances from the school that privacy and expressive rights will be protected and any accommodations will not involve the girls giving up access to most of their restrooms, as has previously been suggested by the school.

As predicted a pretend-female is a male in the girl’s restrooms.

Our parents and grandparents were not this stupid.

Our precious daughters are at risk. Will America not stand for the right?

“A male student at Florence High School who claims to be a transgender has been harrassing girls in the bathroom.”

I see an immediate opening for members of the Varsity football team to stand as guards outside the girls bathrooms on campus to, uh, discourage the entry of a particular individual at any time the room is not otherwise unoccupied.

To be sure, there is always some recourse...

An uppercut followed by a knee to the groin would be an appropriate recourse.

Would a female on “female” hazing be considered just plain bullying or a hate crime...

Inquiring minds want to know...

Dear parents: demand a chaperone be stationed in restrooms. Tell them it’s for the protection of the little pervert they’re nurturing, lest the girls “bully” the boy. Seriously. Demand a chaperone.

Where to begin . . .

This is so disturbing. I would yank my child out of that school immediately. How about having the transgender use the teachers’ restroom instead? Let’s see how that goes.

Even when a person with XY chromosomes has a condition that causes her to be born, grow, and live as a (sterile) female?

Does America stand for the rights of any conservative values any more? Of course not. This country is far more screwed than many of you realize. And even those who believe in preserving traditional values are too coward to stand and be counted. Gutless cowards!

To hell with that. Pull your kids out of those godless, anti-American, anti-common sense, anti-reality, communist indoctrination freakshows known as the public school system. Otherwise, by the end of the school year, I guarantee these girls will be brainwashed into thinking it was their fault for not being more "tolerant".

My dad taught me right: if ANY guy laid a hand on me (that I didn't want) I would have slapped knocked the s*** out of him. He taught me to make a REAL fist when I was four or five.

Those girls should have a dad who teaches them RIGHT.

Yes, that is what I had in mind. People with (usually) a mutation in the androgen receptors that prevent them from developing normally as males can live their whole life as a female and learn about their condition only when they fail to mature at puberty.

It must be a devastating diagnosis for a teenager.

And it affects about .00047 of the population, or slightly less than 5/10,000ths of the entire population, and even then is more and less severe, and even then STILL has a Y chromosome. And since the school age cohort is about 5-18 years of age, that means the incidence in a school is about 1/10,000ths of the school age population.

So let’s base what we do on something so rare that you don’t find even one in the school systems of most of America.

A guy who has undergone genital mutilation surgery is still a guy. It is impossible for him to ever live as a true woman.

I guess, though, it *would* give an advantage if he wants to call himself a woman and compete in women’s sports. It is awfully unfair to real women, however.

Those parents who say they care about their children then keep them in public school are, at the very least, hypocritical.

Screw up the whole society for that one in ten million. It is the only fair way. The extremely rare exception's rights trump the rights of everyone else in a fair society and the entire society must change so that that one can be the normal person.

Actually, the confused lad should be taken out to the parking lot and rendered into a she immediately to eliminate his gender confusion.

... who claims to be a transgender ...

Very clever sneaky phrasing here. The implication is this one is not "really" transgender, without implying anything negative about the transgender "right" to use the restroom of his/her choice.

Yep, this and the refusal to honor our own war dead this week means we are totally lost.

How can we buy the notion that boys should be in girl’s restrooms and on girls’ sports teams?

How can we send our citizen soldiers to die in a war and then refuse to honor them and their families with simple things like family presence, escort, burial, and family care?

The people I had in mind, those with androgen sensitivity disorders, often do not know they are genetic males (or are unaware until they fail to start menstruating). They are different from those who have a mental illness that makes them believe their life problems result from their gender.

It is unfair to everyone to act as if a boy is really a girl just because he wants to call himself one. It would be equally unfair to insist that everyone with XY chromosomes be treated like a boy, when the afflicted person may not even know she has XY chromosomes. The condition may be rare, but statistically speaking, every school district probably has one.
