Transgender Student in Women’s Locker Room Raises Uproar
The decision to allow a transgender 45-year-old college student who identifies as a woman but has male genitalia to use the women’s locker room has raised a fracas among parents and faith-based organizations, who say children as young as 6 years old use the locker room.
The locker room at Evergreen College in Olympia, Wash., is shared with the Capital High School swim club and a children’s swim academy, along with the students at Evergreen.
“The college has to follow state law,” Evergreen spokesman Jason Wettstein told ABC News affiliate KOMO. “The college cannot discriminate based on the basis of gender identity. Gender identity is one of the protected things in discrimination law in this state.”
But according to parents, the fact that the student has exposed her male genitalia, in one instance in the sauna, is cause for concern.
“[A mother] reported her daughter was upset because she observed a person at the women’s locker room naked and displaying male genitalia,” said a police report filed in September by a mother on behalf of her 17-year-old daughter.
The Alliance Defending Freedom, an Arizona-based religious liberties group, sent a letter to Evergreen College on Friday, warning it that the decision to allow the transgender student to continue using the locker room could put the school in jeopardy.
“The fact that this individual was sitting in plain view of young girls changing into their swimsuits puts you and Evergreen on notice of possible future harm,” David Hacker, senior legal counsel, wrote.
The college has installed privacy curtains, and said it would not change its policy for now.
I don’t get it…
Why would anyone complain about this ?..aka OMG
If Gov’t has not only approved this…..but actually endorsed it…why would the lowly average citizen ( aka 99.9% of the population) even dare disagree ?
I mean….we must support any /all defineable……(or otherwise)…” minorities” …. no matter what their beliefs…sexual preferences..kinky stuff………manifest themselves…its all ” RELATIVE “……right?..
One most certainly doesn’t want to be accused of being old fashioned…conservative…traditional….(aka giving a damn about one’s children_…..or most vulnerable …..are..,as the greater societal good as per described by the whacko social engineers who must be genuflected to………………….right ?!? ).
In other words…any psychological/ biological freak —errr “subjectively defined minority”…could hide behind a bunch of gutless and perverted “politically correct ” legislation…… and use this as free pass to violate traditional protocols historically meant to kept such scenarios UNambiguous..ie whereby the “scales of justice” would previously look at protecting the interests of the most vulnerable(our youth)……versus the most machiavellian exploitation of the aforementioned.
If we take… as a given ……that the nouveau subjective norm is “anything goes”…then perhaps those in opposition should… as a first priority… and schooled via ” traditional family ” from this…and next step is action so as to expose and negate such sick self -serving one dimensional proposals.
IMHO..I do not see ANY upside, but instead a badly camouflaged cheap and sleazy venue that is simply sugar coated voyeurism, pedophilia etc.
Do YOU want to see our own flesh and blood exploited in such a way….it appears to be quite a slippery slope to this aim where NO ONE is immune ?
To be blunt…..I had predicted a long time ago that given the way society is evolving, something like this was inevitable. This is part of the slow corrosive drip that rots out society.
