    529 people signed a letter of support for the third grader and many of them were quick to stand and be counted during the public forum section of the meeting. But about a dozen people remained seated and the conservative nonprofit, Texas Values says their voices need to continue to be heard. Texas Values and some parents in the Dripping Springs Independent School District submitted a Public Information Act Request to DSISD requesting all communication between district employees regarding the bathroom issue including emails about the school district's decision to allow the third grader to use the girls' bathroom.

    A witness told police she heard screaming coming from the restroom and ran in to see what was wrong. The witness pulled on the first stall door, but it was locked. Through the crack of the door the witness saw Powell with his hand over the mouth of an 8-year-old female child, who was trying to get away. The witness screamed at Powell to let the child go but he would not, the affidavit says.

    FLUSHING, New York, July 21, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Macy’s department store has fired a Catholic employee because he questioned their transgender bathroom policy, even though he says he told his employer he would enforce the policy. Back in May, Javier Chavez, a senior store detective at Macy’s Flushing, New York, location got a phone call about a male accessing the ladies room along with a female. A female customer and her daughter were afraid to enter the restroom due the male’s presence there, and a security guard reporting to Chavez directed the man to leave and use the men’s room....

    My dear brothers and sisters in Christ,Once again common sense has been turned on its head in our culture, this time by transgender activists agitating for people to be able to use the bathroom that they feel corresponds emotionally to their self-identified gender rather than the anatomical gender of their biological sex. The issue has emerged prominently in recent national and local news.Obama and the Civil Rights of Transgender People In North Carolina, in response to an ordinance adopted in Charlotte that would have allowed transgender people to use whatever bathroom they wanted, the state legislature passed a law in...

    Will these social-conservative turncoats face real political consequences? I was up in the wee hours after midnight Thursday when Daniel Horowitz’s tweet crossed my radar: The GOP-controlled House had just voted in the dead of night to write into law Obama’s executive order banning federal contractors who “discriminate” against transgendered individuals. We all know now what that means: If you refuse to let anatomical males into your women’s dressing rooms, locker rooms, or bathrooms, you are just a bigoted hater, end of story. Just ask Representative Zoe Lofgren (D., Calif.), who descended, Trumplike, to insults when challenged by a witness....

    The current assault on women’s right to privacy in public restrooms implies that only those born with Gender Identity Disorder have any personal rights. GIDites believe that people with male anatomies who are dressed as women should be able to use restrooms designated for people with female anatomies. Women are justifiably concerned that sexual predators can take advantage of this situation and dress as women to gain access to women’s restrooms. Depriving women of their right to sexual privacy to accommodate men with a mental abnormality makes women second class citizens
  • Man Exposes Himself In Moorpark High School Girls Locker Room

    MOORPARK (CBSLA.com) -- Police hope security video will help them catch a man who exposed himself at Moorpark High School twice last week. The footage shows a man with a beard, wearing a T-shirt and shorts sneaking into the girls locker room on May 11 and 12. He took off all his clothes and stood in the back of the locker room, police said. When students noticed him, they immediately left the room and reported the incidents. Parent Sumetra Upadhye said: "Both my sons are in the school, and they actually heard the girls screaming." Freshman Alexander Sliva said students...

    Transgender people said Thursday they fear a South Carolina bill that would require them to use the public bathroom for their biological sex will stoke misguided fears and endorse restroom vigilantism, even if the bill ultimately dies as expected. Opponents told a Senate panel the unenforceable measure perpetuates myths against an already-ostracized community, while supporters contend it’s about protecting the privacy and safety of women and children. […] No vote was taken during the panel’s second and final hearing. It’s not yet clear whether the full committee will consider the measure. But even if it manages to advance to the...

    Coverage of the Saturday night Democratic debate has focused on Bernie Sanders’ apology to Hillary Clinton for his staff’s poor judgment in viewing her campaign’s proprietary data. But Clinton issued a “sorry’’ of her own — although for a far less serious matter. Clinton apologized to a live television audience for returning late from the ladies’ room after the break. The reason is one many women are familiar with: An unexpected line for the loo. While Clinton waited for the ladies’ room to clear out, time ticked down and the debate organizers allowed the show to go on without her.

    Bathrooms are the center of a major debate in Troy after the school district’s superintendent announced in a message there will be a gender-neutral bathroom in every school. 2 NEWS observed over the weekend several Troy residents chiming in on Facebook about Herman’s message. --- However, the main factor is the federal law, Title IX. Often, people think of that when it comes to equality in athletics. The mandates of the law have expanded since the ’70s when it was first enacted; the law was challenged in 2013, specifically on gender identity. The U.S. Department of Education announced last year...

    13 March 2015 “We Just Need To Pee” Transgender Protest Do you have to be biologically male to be allowed in the men's room, or biologically female for the ladies loos? In several US states, as well as in Canada, the law governing public toilets is now a divisive issue. On one side are transgender people, who assert their right to use whichever restrooms they chose - no matter what their biological gender. On the other, conservatives who say a relaxation of the rules could leave members of the public vulnerable to traumatic or inappropriate situations, or even sexual harassment....

    Maine’s highest court will soon decide which restroom Nicole Maines, a 15-year-old transgendered student, should use. Last week the state supreme court heard oral arguments about whether a school district violated her civil rights when it forbid her from using the girl’s restroom. She was in fifth grade at the time. Maines is biologically male but has identified as female since she was very young. As such, she wished to use the girl’s restroom. State law, however, mandates that boys and girls use separate facilities. Her school told her to use the staff restroom instead. These requirements violate the Maine...

    Nashville woman who found herself face-to-face with a “big, burly” cross-dresser in the ladies room of a family restaurant felt her horror turn to anger after a restaurant manager suggested she try the men’s room. Transgendered people in several states have been fighting for the right to use public restrooms that correspond with whatever sex they consider themselves, with lawmakers in California and Massachusetts providing support for the idea. But David Staton, whose wife had the disquieting run-in while eating out at Amerigo, a restaurant in the country music capital, has a simple solution.

    The Obama Department of Justice has reportedly ordered the University of Arkansas at Ft. Smith (UAFS) to allow a male student to use women’s bathrooms on campus. Campus Reform reports that a male student who calls himself “Jennifer Braly,” and is in the process of raising money to pay for his sex-reassignment surgery, filed a complaint with the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice after the campus told him to use gender-neutral bathrooms rather than women’s restrooms.

    JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA, May 21, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – A proposed “civil rights” ordinance could open public restrooms and showers to transgender members of the opposite sex, its critics warn. The city council of Jacksonville, Florida, is considering passing an ordinance to outlaw “discrimination” on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity in employment, public accommodations, or housing. That means no employer, landlord, or owner of any facility open to the public may refuse to hire or rent their property to anyone who claims to be homosexual or transgender. The measure, supported by Councilman Warren Jones, also leaves employers vulnerable to...

    DENVER (AP) - Qatar's U.S. ambassador rushed to the defense of his envoy whom authorities say grabbed a surreptitious smoke in a jetliner's bathroom, sparking a bomb scare and widespread alert that sent jet fighters scrambling to intercept the Denver-bound flight. But no explosives were found and authorities speaking on condition of anonymity said they don't think he was trying to hurt anyone during Wednesday's scare and he will not be criminally charged. Qatar's U.S. ambassador, Ali Bin Fahad Al-Hajri, cautioned against a rush to judgment. "This diplomat was traveling to Denver on official embassy business on my instructions, and...

    A San Francisco County judge, who yesterday struck down California’s ban on homosexual marriage, today ruled on the same basis that separate restrooms for men and women are unconstitutional. Superior Court Judge Richard Kramer likened the division of washrooms to laws requiring racial segregation in schools, and said there appears to be “no rational purpose for denying women access to men’s facilities and vice versa.” “The state’s protracted denial of equal protection cannot be justified simply because such constitutional violation has become traditional,” Judge Kramer wrote. “The court finds that the legal principle of lavatorio proportio [potty parity] offers inadequate...
