Listen up, California: Colo. school girls told they have no privacy rights [Transgender Agenda]
One News Now ^ | 10/24/2013 | Becky Yeh

A California legal group says The Golden State needs to learn a lesson from an incident in Colorado where a male student, who occasionally self-identifies as a female, is being permitted to use the girls' restrooms.

Earlier this month, attorneys with Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) sent a legal demand letter to officials at Florence High School in Colorado, asking them to respect the privacy rights of students. The letter was sent in response to the school's decision to allow a teenage boy to enter the girls' bathrooms. According to the female students, the boy also made sexually harrassing comments to the girls he encountered.

PJI president Brad Dacus spoke with OneNewsNow about the incident.

"This school district in Colorado, by placating and allowing this boy to, at will, use the girls' restrooms or the girls' lockerrooms – simply because sometimes he says feels like a girl – is an egregious violation of the right to privacy of the other students,” says Dacus. “Particularly the young girls in the school who do not appreciate having a boy walk in when they are dressing in the locker room or showering or using the bathroom."

Lock this bastard up and put him in a cell with Bubba. It won’t take long before he is willing to stop acting like a girl.

Colorado used to be a good state to live in. Then the liberals from California infested it.

Allowing boys and girls to shower together and then telling the girls they will punished if they complain of sexual harassment seems a bit stupid to me.

I live here and it sure seems like it......kind of like muslims. They leave their 3rd world pit, come here and then want to change their new environment to replicate the old.

Colorado was pro-abortion before the Californians swarmed in.

Colorado has always had an independent quasi-left-libertarian streak.

A lot of the current nonsense is aided by the recent crop of emigres, cut the Coloradans themselves should share some of the blame.

Problem is, the harassment never happened. Not officially, anyway.

Update: Colo. School Story Sparks Backlash by LGBT Activists
10/17/2013

Florence, Colo.—A story broken last week by Pacific Justice Institute and picked up by media outlets around the world has inspired near-panic among transgender advocates who have now begun their own counter-campaign in an attempt to divert attention away from the story.

PJI sent a legal demand letter to Florence High School, near Colorado Springs, raising serious questions and concerns about the school’s decision to allow a boy who sometimes identifies as female to have full access to female bathrooms on campus. PJI represents students and their families whose privacy rights are being violated by the school’s decision.
PJI urged school officials to immediately identify any factual allegations they considered to be disputed. School officials have yet to respond to this invitation, but Superintendent Rhonda Vendetti instead gave an interview to a transgender activist in which she was defensive of the school’s actions and dismissive of some of the allegations. This interview was seized upon by advocates, who claimed it somehow proved the story to be a fabrication. Under intense pressure, several news sites took down or retracted their stories rather than investigating further. Not so fast, say PJI attorneys.

“Transgender activists are in full damage control mode because they know how explosive and damaging to their cause this story is,” noted Brad Dacus, president of Pacific Justice Institute. “The central issue in this case—a high school’s decision to give a biological teenage boy full access to teenage girls’ bathrooms is both disturbing and not seriously disputed. It is very revealing that the Superintendent is seeking sympathy from transgender activists instead of addressing the serious concerns raised in our letter.”

PJI has requested a detailed response from school officials by the end of this week.

Colo. School Spooks Families With Police Surveillance for Asserting Privacy Rights
10/22/2013

Florence, Colo.—In a twist of irony, school officials who have been under fire for disregarding student privacy rights are now warning complaining families that law enforcement will be monitoring social media discussions about their concerns.

In a report released late yesterday, Superintendent Rhonda Vendetti again waved off parents’ and students’ concerns about the district’s decision to allow a teenage boy at Florence High School who identifies as a girl to freely enter girls’ bathrooms and locker rooms. The district was responding to a letter from Pacific Justice Institute raising serious concerns about the privacy rights of PJI clients who are teenage girls at the school. The Superintendent’s conclusions were not surprising, since she had already sought sympathy from and given an exclusive interview to a transgender activist. What was surprising to PJI attorneys, though, was the report’s failure to address threats by the athletic department against some of the girls’ continued participation in school sports after they asserted their rights. Even more troubling was the Superintendent’s warning that the complaining families were now subject to having their social media monitored by police.
“Since we first broke this story, it has been shocking to see the lengths to which school officials and LGBT activists have gone to suppress the truth,” stated Brad Dacus, president of Pacific Justice Institute. “We have now received a large and growing stack of hate mail from supposedly tolerant LGBT supporters, most of which is based on unquestioning faith in school officials who have proved to be untrustworthy. It is increasingly apparent that school officials and LGBT activists are on an all-out mission to discredit our clients rather than deal with the serious problems they have identified with a biologically teenage boy sharing bathrooms with their teenage daughters. These new developments only stiffen our resolve and renew our focus to seek a balanced solution that honors the rights and needs of all students.”

There, fixed it, but the thought is still spot on. Just how long do we have to hear about how “liberal migration” from “somewhere else” has ruined the place where we are currently living? As the song says: “The whole world is festering with unhappy souls, the French hate the Germans, the Germans hate the Poles. Romanians hate Yugoslavs, South Africans hate the Dutch, and I don’t like anybody very much!”
‘Bout sums it up! Now, rather than bitching about the unprovable, how about working to fix the whole Effing Country?

To: markomalley; All
Please consider the following irony concerning women and the constitutionally unenumerated "right to privacy."

To begin with, the closest thing that I can find in the Constitution to privacy is private property in the 4th Amendment, corrections welcome. Otherwise, the states have never amended the Constitution to protect privacy as a personal right. This means that the states, not the federal government, are free to regulate personal privacy under the 10th Amendment.

However, such simple logic did not stop activist justices from putting on their "magic glasses" to subjectively find the so-called constitutional right to privacy in the 14th Amendment (14A). They did so to help justify their PC argument that their fictituous constitutional right to privacy applies to the fictitious constitutional right to have an abortion.

But by legislating new rights to the Constitution from the bench, justices wrongly ignored that John Bingham, the main author of Section 1 of 14A, had officially clarifed in general the following concerning 14A. 14A applies to the states only those rights which the states have ratified to the Constitution. And privacy is not an enumerated right.

"Mr. Speaker, this House may safely follow the example of the makers of the Constitution and the builders of the Republic, by passing laws for enforcing all the privileges and immunities of the United States as guaranteed by the amended Constitution and expressly enumerated in the Constitution (emphasis added)." --Congressional Globe, House of Representatives, 42nd Congress, 1st Session A Century of Lawmaking for a New Nation: U.S. Congressional Documents and Debates, 1774 - 1875.

Roe v. Wade justices also wrongly ignored that the Supreme Court had previously reflected on Bingham's words in Minor v. Happersett, clarifying that 14A applies to the states only those rights which the states have amended the Constitution to protect.

"3. The right of suffrage was not necessarily one of the privileges or immunities of citizenship before the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment, and that amendment does not add to these privileges and immunities. It simply furnishes additional guaranty for the protection of such as the citizen already had. (emphasis added)" --Minor v. Happersett, 1984.

But as evidenced by this Colorado issue, we've swung from woman having the fictitious constitutional rights of privacy and abortion to unseen faces politically repealing the fictitious constitutional right to privacy so that social deviants can harrass women.

What a mess! :^(

And the reason that Constitution-ignoring activists get away with such things is because generations of parents have not been making sure that their children are being taught the federal government's constitutionally limited powers.

If the “boy” is queer the girls are not in any danger, except to their modesty.

Lucky my daughter doesn’t go there - would have to give him an ultimatum, “Next time you ‘feel like a girl’, I’m gonna remove the parts that make you feel like a boy and be done with it”.
